Saying science can be corrupted is not saying it all is, or it should be thrown out. - Blackdog
So no, I don't except blanket generalizations. I call them out for what they are.
Since creationism also includes abiogenesis, the science is still out on that one. Old earth Christians (like myself) also believe in evolution, just not on such a large scale as some scientist say. I am no scientist, but I have not seen any real proof of an anphibian becoming a mammle etc. Since the jury is also still out on that one as well, it is again nothing but an untrue blanket statement on your part.

Yes I can, and I did. Even used the dictionary to back up my statement.[/quote]
There is no middle ground on this what so ever. Either you think science is corrupt. Or you do not.
Show me a single piece of evidence to contradict it?Depends on which ones you are talking about. Again blanket statements are more often then not, untrue.
Creationism can not possibly include abiogenesis because it does not understand what abiogenesis is to begin with. Creationists have tried to calculate the possibility of abiogenesis happening as a way of discrediting it and inserting a belief in a "creator". That in and of itself proves they can not possibly understand what it is.Since creationism also includes abiogenesis, the science is still out on that one.
It is like saying that because you can spend an eternity playing the lotery and only once in that eternity you win, then it is impossible to win the lottery without being told what the numbers are by somebody else. That is a fallacy because the chances of people picking out lottery winning numbers are in the billions. Yet every month we have people randomly pick out lottery numbers and winning. Not only that but we have the same occurrence time, after time, after time.
Because that is not how evolution works. You do not go from an amphibian to a mammal through evolution. You go through various stages and these stages are minuscule. And even then it does not guarantee that you will get B from A. Example. It is indisputable that birds and extinct dinosaurs are related. This is in part because certain traits are directly recognizable from one extinct group to the next. The same goes for pretty much every species of animal. You can see where these groups split from each other and the further up the chain you go there more distant relationships you see with other animals.Old earth Christians (like myself) also believe in evolution, just not on such a large scale as some scientist say. I am no scientist, but I have not seen any real proof of an anphibian becoming a mammle etc. Since the jury is also still out on that one as well, it is again nothing but an untrue blanket statement on your part.
Not really. You either think science is corrupt or you do not.I most certainly can be.

Another bad blanket statement.
Again you are trying to argue against my example rather than the point of my post.

Agree or disagree that creationism is real...those that promote the concept are dedicated to their belief as are the global warming crowd. The difference would be that at least some if not many are deliberately manufacturing evidence for global warming and presenting that as 'proof' of AGW, and THAT is corrupt.
Science is something you do a "thing".

Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
