Typical stupid American.
What are your sources?
Ever heard about the web of science.
How many paper do you find about creationism?
Almost nothing.
That means that scientists don't care about creationism.

What is wrong with Wikipedia? Did you check out Wikipedia's sources. There are extremely valid articles in Wikipedia, if you have doubts check Wiki's sources, dissing it as a source does not work any longer. Short of listing the actual peer reviewed articles Wiki can be as good of a source as any other on the internet.

I have seen that creationists only complain about Wikipedia when they have no valid argument of their own.

Could it be because creationism suggest there is a creator?

Yes. One of them.

In the case I posted, it was convenient as I was at work, and it provided the data I thought you were looking for (showing evolution of single-celled organisms in the lab)

It is *STILL* a very good resource, despite your pooh-poohing it.

Here's a hint, dummy: go to the bottom of the page, where it says "REFERENCES".

Now. Lets try it again, shall we?

No it is more likely that there is no scientific evidence at all that supports creationism.

Charles I like being blunt. Now yes I do believe in God but yet there is no evidence for God. Does that mean he is a myth, I don't think so. Now we have in just the last 200 years been excelling in learning about natural things and still have a lot to learn. God would be supernatural and we have no ideal if supernatural is real or not and we have no way to test or study anything that maybe supernatural. Now the God of the bible is said to live in the universe and last time I checked we have only explored about 1% of the universe,,, so we have a long was to go. But like it or not there is no physical evidence to test or study for God and that is why people reject him. Keep to your beliefs and carry on. Whether you believe in God or not we are all going to die. If there is a heaven we won't know until we are dead and if there isn't, we will never know.
A good post, very objective, however the question of how the universe and life came into being is not really a scientific one . It's philosophical, since the scientific method is useless on these questions

Too bad that you do not know the meaning of the word "objective".

Still the moron.

Let's see if you can ask a sensible question, or are you bound and determined that everybody knows that you are a gibbering idiot?

You realize that the only person acting int he way you are decrying...is you, right? I mean half the people you accuse of being stupid Americans weren't even American.

Surely the vaunted German education system included learning about debate, reason and rhetorical style such as not leading a rebuttal in a debate with an insult? Perhaps people might take you a bit more seriously and want to engage you on the topic at hand if you didn't act like some punk.

I already knew it. It is totally unfunny. Some translations are really ridiculous. You would translate pen with 'Stift' instead of 'Kugelschreiber'(ball pen).
Well, EVERYBODY I know found it to be VERY funny.

And "pen" can perfectly well be translated as "Kugelschreiber".

Don't reveal your pettiness like that.

Well is wikipedia were such a pretty funny stuff, it would be VERY EASY to debunk it for you, ISN'T IT?

GO AHEAD THEN.

Stupid, childish, ridiculous and cowardly attempt to evade the points.
Don't expose your cowardness like that.

The German words for pettiness are "Feigheit, Feigherzigkeit, Kleinmütigkeit, Borniertheit, Kleinlichkeit, Engstirnigkeit"

Until now nobody delivered it.
The evidence for Zeus neither can be ruled out.
The evidence for Thor neither can de ruled out.
The evidence for Yeti neither can de ruled out.
The evidence for Bigfoot neither can de ruled out.
The evidence for aliens having panspermed earth neither can de ruled out.

The evidence for aliens having panspermed earth is lacking.
The evidence for Bigfoot earth is lacking.
The evidence for Yeti is lacking.
The evidence for Thor is lacking.
The evidence for Zeus is lacking.
The evidence for God is lacking as well.

And WHAT do we do with phenomena whose evidence is lacking?

So this means that your “doh I don’t know when I’m going to turn my toes up so I gotta believe in god” makes just as much sense than “doh, I don’t know so it musts be my god wot dun it wiv magic”
I.e. you don’t know so guess which is exactly my point.
Far from guessing. So, tell us, who made the earth?
The God answer fits in.
