Is Creation Science, Science?

 Use of Evolutionist by Creationists

The most important question in science is what Science is.

 Determining what is and is not science is not an easy task since Science does not readily fit into a box.

At a national science teachers convention in 1966 Richard Feynman gave a rather interesting definition of Science.

"As a matter of fact, I can also define science another way: Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts."
(The Physics Teacher, 7September, 1969, 313-320)

There are some concepts that are generally considered as describing science.

  • Use of observation and measurements.

  • Use of hypotheses and theories that make falsifiable predictions.

  • A willingness to revise and abandon theories based on new data.
