How do you know that creationism is myth?

Question from Alan Wilson Coleman – “Is there any one point that causes you to know that creationism is myth?”

Why yes Alan, there sure is. You can mark that point at reason, common sense, and established scientific fact. You’ve heard of these? For example, I know for a fact that the earth is round rather than flat. It does not matter if there are groups of people who insist that the earth is flat still to this day.

In the same way, I know that the earth is not six thousand years old, despite the many mythologists who insist that it is. Any politician that is a young earth creationist does not have the psychological cahonas to hold political power.

In case you thought I was just being sarcastic: “The mission of the Flat Earth Society is to promote and initiate discussion of Flat Earth theory as well as archive Flat Earth literature.”

The earth is round, took more than six days to form, and is very old. If you refuse to recognize these facts, you are being willfully militantly ignorant. While science does not have all the answers, it most certainly has better answers than Bronze Age Mythology. And that is exactly what creationism is.

There is a long and well documented history of Christianity’s forced retreat back into the shadows at the hand of scientific discovery. The mythologists’ story begins in the Garden of Eden, does it not?  What had man done? He had eaten from the tree of knowledge! Translation: Science as original sin! What is the moral meme of the story? – “Man shall not know.”

As Nietzsche so elegantly wrote: “It is all over with priests and gods if man becomes scientific – Moral: science is the forbidden in itself – it alone is forbidden. Science is the first sin, the germ of all sin, original sin.”
