Abstract:

Figure 7. Creationists offer a cartooned view of scienceClick to Enlarge Image

Few scientists have read the literature of the "creation science" movement. Donald Wise, in an attempt to understand the alternative models of earth history proposed by creationists, has managed to piece together a geologic time scale based on the literature. Only by understanding the underlying ideas, history and assumptions of "creation science," Wise argues, can scientists effectively maintain the distinctions between science and religion and counteract efforts by fundamentalists to bring the Bible into public schools as a science textbook.
