    That is not a relevant point to make in any answer to the question posed. The question posed is meant to illustrate the extent that creationists question evolution, and compare that extent and character to the Americans who questioned Heisenberg. It is irrelevant whether creationists have an alternate theory.

    I don't think Americans were aware of Heisenberg's theory since it was wartime. That his word was law among the German physicists, and that this defeated their efforts to build a bomb, is the point.

    Back at Los Alamos any joe schmoe could put forward his ideas and win the day with them if they were sound.

    Enforcement of an orthodoxy is NEVER good science. Skepticism is ALWAYS the proper attitude.

    Even with sacred cows like evolution. We should always be aware that a better idea might be put forward, but that ain't creationism.

    Creationism advocates are religious laymen for the most part, not scientists. Most mainstream Christians don't think that scripture, poorly interpreted, trumps the physical realities of the real world.

    No, I don't reject evolution. There's too much evidence in favor of it.

    Judging by what our liberal friends writes, evolution in the nature does not exist.

    It's not a theory at all, it's a totally discredited and debunked hypothesis.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
