Creationism/ Intelligent Design is not science

September 30, 2007

According to my Oxford dictionary, science is defined as: the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.  The problems with creationism and Intelligent Design are that they are not naturalistic and that they are not based on observation or experiment. Because they revlve around the supernatural, thare is no positive evidence for the claims. This also makes them unfalsifiable, because there is no way to rule it out. However, evolution has positive evidence and can easily be falsified. For instance, if paleontologists found a foossilized rabbit in cambrian strata, the whole theory would be either scrapped or drastically changed. However, counter examples like this have not yet occurred, but in Creationism and ID, thins like tht occur regularly, but the refuse acknowledge it and never amend their hypotheses. That is both intellectually dishonest and unscientific. That is why they are not science
