Austin Gee Posted 9 months ago Does creationism indicate bad education? (If so how can we fix this, and should it be taught?) Does Creationism have any credibility to it? Hey again Adriaan, I think it's hard for scientists to say "even though science can't detect it, it may exist" because science is all about evidence and if we don't have evidence then we cannot say for sure one way or the other. So an honest scientist would say "we don't know yet, maybe." I'm not sure who told you anything about 35 billion years ago- I wouldn't listen to any of that- the universe is "only" 13.5 billion years old (that's a HUGE amount of time!) so before that we don't know. More to your point though, evidence of the expansion of the universe is pretty good. Everywhere we look the light coming to us is red shifted which means the objects are moving away from us. What caused the big bang is another question. Really, the question is what happened before the big bang. It makes sense that if there was that much matter/energy in one point it would be unstable and would expand, or "explode." Does evidence equal proof- no. In science we cannot "prove" anything! We can only say "the evidence supports this hypothesis." Or "the evidence does not support this hypothesis." When enough evidence is found supporting a hypothesis it may become a theory but it's not unfalsifiable. There may come enough evidence later to show that it is wrong. If that doesn't happen it holds up. The only Laws though are mathematical equations based on physics such as F = MA. Thanks for your comment on the definition of faith. I'll mull it over, but wanted to get back to you about the first couple of comments right away. Take care.
