Evolution vs. Creationism Database
August 10th, 2006
Ever get into an discussion with a creationist or an ID'er, and they throw some factoid at you "proving" evolution is fake? Or have you just read some creationist tract and are interested in the other side? Or, even more challenging, are you a creationist or ID'er and you want a healthy test of your beliefs? (Ha! As if.) Well, in any case, check out the Talk Origins Index to Creationist Claims. Even if it is of no immediate practical use, it's a very well-documented and exhaustive list of "arguments" forwarded by creationists to "disprove" evolution, each with an excellent explanation of why each claim is bogus. From "evolution is only a theory" to the "half an eye" argument and far beyond, it's all there. Very interesting reading. And if you ever get the chance, watch this PBS documentary on evolution, narrated by Liam Neeson. Excellent series.
