It is neither. Science is apolitical, secular and has no philosophy. Also, it does not try to disprove a creator.
Off topic, but have you noticed that you tend to capitalize every word?

Sumerians Look On In Confusion As God Creates World
http://www.theonion.com/articles/sumerians-lo...

Members of the earth's earliest known civilization, the Sumerians, looked on in shock and confusion some 6,000 years ago as God, the Lord Almighty, created Heaven and Earth.

According to recently excavated clay tablets inscribed with cuneiform script, thousands of Sumerians—the first humans to establish systems of writing, agriculture, and government—were working on their sophisticated irrigation systems when the Father of All Creation reached down from the ether and blew the divine spirit of life into their thriving civilization.

"I do not understand," reads an ancient line of pictographs depicting the sun, the moon, water, and a Sumerian who appears to be scratching his head. "A booming voice is saying,'Let there be light,' but there is already light. It is saying,'Let the earth bring forth grass,' but I am already standing on grass."

"Everything is here already," the pictograph continues. "We do not need more stars."

My theory? I didn't write the bible so the theory is not mine again.
The cave paintings at Lescaux in France are at least 12,000 years old, so no, your silly, nutcake "Bible belief" is a crock is sh!t.

If they can change the dates one way then why can't they change them the other way someday? It all sounds like guess work to me.

Yes they could but you have to remember the search is for the truth , not some make believe tale. Errors happen technology advances and so does the method of testing the result is we dig in the sand to understand eventually we do. But sometimes the walls cave in before we do , doesn't change the result , it merely slows down it's discovery.

To admit errors is understandable, do not admit errors is foolish pride. But as we progress we do find the truth . This is the reason we admit mistakes in science, because science is the search for the truth.

<quoted text>Lang, you might avoid cutting and pasting entire webpages like this. Many sitees copywrite their pages, so what you are doing is plagerism. What many allow is a short excert and a link to the source material.
plagerism?

plagiarism: noun
1. an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization AND the representation of that author's work as one's own, as by not crediting the original author: It is said that he plagiarized Thoreau's plagiarism of a line written by Montaigne.

TP: the written authorization in right on my hard drive.

Do you ever know what the fu(k you're talking about? Or do you just babble along hoping somebody reads a line or two of your BS?

Special creation is evident here on Earth, but the evidence is not as black and white as some people want it to be. It takes imagination to see things as an artist would see them, and this is how things are here in the real world. To deny the artistry in the creation of our Earth and universe is being blind to the beauty of it. Some people will see vagueness in anything which shows obvious signs of creation. Ask an honest child if he can see a face in the moon, and more times than not the answer will be yes. Scientist are naturally skeptical, but some of them will not admit the evidence if it were found, because it is vague in their eyes.
You said it - it takes imagination.

<quoted text>If they are pure at heart and honest they will not lie to us. The only problem is they know we can be lied to and may never know the difference as they have done in the past concerning evolution.
Remember, it was the 'evolutionists' who exposed those lies. Ya know, Piltdown, Archaeoraptor, Nebraska-man. Pretty honest, yes?

Then dumb as a post fundies come along and LIE about evolution and keep bringing up those early frauds or mistakes as if the theory depends upon them. And the ironic thing is that the fundies should be claiming they aren't fake at all, since they reject the science that found them to be flawed.

Yup, the fundies lie to you. And they know you won't check. Because they don't care and you don't care.

I don't know if the Moon landing really happened or not, I tend to want to think our government would not lie like that. Honesty is the best policy as far as I am concerned, and I really don't think our leadership we have now would go along with NASA trying to dupe anyone. I was just saying it would be very easy to hoodwink us if they wanted to.
Yes it would be.

And that's exactly what the creationists have done. Hoodwinked you into thinking that reality is not real cuz it's all just an evil world-wide atheist conspiracy!
