    I don't think scientists believing in their hypotheses in necessarily problematic, so long as they stop believing when they are proven wrong. And I think it's a good thing that scientists believe in the possibility of vaccines before creating or discovering them since that belief may give them the push needed to create/discover it in the first place.

    O yes, they do. Kentucky is building a "creationism theme park", in large part with taxpayer dollars.

    (NEWSER) – Disneyland, pshaw. Soon the new hot amusement park will be located in Kentucky, and called ... Ark Encounter. The Christian theme park will include, among other attractions, a 500-foot-long Noah's Ark complete with live animals, a Tower of Babel replica, and a re-created first-century Middle Eastern village. "Make no mistake about it, this is a huge deal," says the governor, who is backing the park despite criticisms about its ideology.

    The park, a collaboration between a for-profit company and the non-profit that runs Kentucky's Creation Museum, is stirring up controversy because developers are asking for tourism development tax incentives of up to $37.5 million, the Courier-Journal reports. Opponents say such incentives would violate the constitutional separation of church and state. Another point of controversy: whether the park will be allowed to discriminate on the basis of religion when hiring, as the Creation Museum does. Assuming those concerns fall on deaf ears, the park is expected to open in 2014.

    "Life" is not a bright line. I do believe that one celled organisms emerged from the ooze.

    It is plausible, and possible that the "what" is just chemistry.

    Well, science would say that the origins of life started with the Big Bang.

    Where do you think the first living organism came from or who created it
