15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense – Scientific American

This article is over ten years old, but it is still apropos.  Creationists are still using the same empty arguments, and this article still neuters them.  I know I have repeatedly had to endure these quibbles, put forward with such fervent confidence every time, and it would be nice to simply be able to refer them to these answers.

Here are a few examples of their challenges:

Evolution is only a theory.
If humans descended from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?
Evolutionists cannot point to any transitional fossils.

Follow the link below to see them deflated.

On that note, why do creationists always ask questions like these?  They’re trying to replace a well-tested theory with something that they think is better.  Why aren’t they defending their candidate with science instead of always muddying the water with these specious arguments?

Opponents of evolution want to make a place for creationism by tearing down real science, but their arguments don’t hold up

Extension Eight

RedDwarfPlanet-ArtistConception-NASA-PD-640x240

The eighth and final extension to Green Comet is available on the downloads page. I wasn’t certain that I would post this extension as a download, or if I should wait until the whole novel was ready and just post that. After thinking about it, and asking around, I decided to continue the pattern and make the final part of the first draft available like all the others. However, I won’t be recording Extension Eight. Instead, I’ll do the final recording after the novel is completed and published. The proofreading and editing are going to make for a lot of changes that will have to be applied to the recordings too, and I can save myself some work by not recording this last part until it’s finished.

Like the other extensions, Business has a Creative Commons license. You are encouraged to download and enjoy it freely. You are also free to share it. You should also feel free to add to the comments.

I hope you enjoy it.
