    Indeed. I often will ask Creationists to provide examples of commercialized products their "science" helps product that aren't media propaganda.

    99% of the time Creationists will run. 1% of the time they'll claim everything since God made it. I have yet to have a Creationist actually cite something their "science" helps commercially produce. If your "science" is deemed to be completely commercially useless, that suggests it has zero basis in reality.

    We may not know everything, but when evolution is used to fuel my gasoline car and creationism just gets used to build props in a creationist museum, it's darn clear to me which is the better "theory."

    Also, X Factor as abandoned this thread. Having his blatant dishonesty pointed out over and over was just a bit too much for him.

    Somewhere in our past, chromosome 2 and 13 of our common ancestor fused.

    Its a miracle...no wait...it is logic and reason. Fraud creationist Ken Ham will not get tax breaks for his silly Noah's Ark amusement park.

    Secular victory: No tax breaks for Ken Ham’s Ark Park
    December 10, 2014 by Michael Stone 2 Comments

    In a victory for science, secular values, and the separation of church and state, Kentucky has withdrawn its offer of $18 million in tax breaks for Ken Ham’s Noah’s Ark theme park.

    The good news means Kentucky taxpayers will not be forced to subsidize an evolution denying Creationist theme park being built by Christian fundamentalists hoping to indoctrinate children with ignorant, discredited religious superstitions.

    Kentucky Tourism Secretary Bob Stewart says the planned project has evolved from a tourism attraction into an outreach for the Christian ministry that is building it. Stewart said:

    “state tourism tax incentives cannot be used to fund religious indoctrination.”

    Stewart said the Ark Encounter religious themed park changed from a tourist attraction to a Christian ministry, so state tax incentives cannot go to support it. He also said the group was no longer honoring its pledge to not discriminate in hiring for the Ark Park.

    Hey don't expect public money, if you publically state you will only hire people who think like you do.
    The state government thought it was all a great idea when it was 'creating' jobs for the masses...

    No. We've understood that "the inherited characteristics of biological populations change over successive generations" for thousands of years. Such changes may bring about evolution, but the changes themselves are not evolution.
