This is a photo I took on 2 June, 2007 at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, United States. I asked beforehand, and was granted permission to photograph on the property and release the photos to the public domain. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Libel for being called a “creationist“, being lumped together with those who believe Adam and Eve and Noah were real people and the Bible is historically accurate? My, my. Badge of honor rather.

Of course we’re way different. Intelligent Design includes many self-described Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and one miniscule thread of atheism that even floated a proposal that believing in the Big Bang afterward )today) caused it to happen in our past. (Kid you not).

Science carried me with history, facts, logic catalysts from atheism to a fleeting belief in design by some entity but didn’t stop until the evidence for Adam and Noah became too obvious.

ID thinkers should check the mirror when they talk about young-earth creationists, compare their anti-creationist missives with their own criticisms of anti-designists. Especially when they pretend that young-earth creationists are not driven by evidence from science, or simply ignore it. Because evidence that the earth is young, evidence of the Flood, and verifications of predictions based on the Biblical narrative like Russel Humphreys’ calculations of planetary magnetic fields, are also scientific.

That said, most ID scientists and writers do not engage much in creationism-bashing. Eugenie Scott does mean the word “creationist” as an insult and as a propaganda trick when he uses it against Intelligent Design theory, so it’s fair to say he was trying to libel somebody with the label. But some do fault YEC (Young-Earth Creationists) wrongly as rejecting science. Andrew Flew fits there, as a believer in God that became a theist based on Design science, but still had pejorative and false labels for the God of the Bible. He may have progressed further before passing on, time will tell on the other side.
