Creation is not PseudoScience, but Evolution IS

CampingRiverI always learn a lot when I read the articles from Jason Lisle at Biblical Science Institute.

In his most recent article, he answers the question about what is science, knowledge and pseudoscience.

dictionary.com defines science as “systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.”

Knowledge is true, justified, belief.

pseudoscience is anything that is claimed to be scientific, that in reality is not

The origins account from the Creator, that we sometimes call creation never claims to be knowledge that is obtained from the scientific method. Creation is a historical fact and because it makes no claims of scientific epiphany, it cannot be pseudoscience.

Dr. Lisle however makes a strong case that the Grand Theory of Evolution is indeed pseudoscience. It claims to be supported by the scientific method but changing of one kind of creature into another kind of creature has only ever been assumed…never observed or demonstrated.

Biblical creation is not a scientific fact, but is rather the historical fact that justifies our confidence in the scientific method.  Science is predicated on biblical creation.  Creation is therefore not pseudoscience, but is recorded history that rightly informs our evaluation of scientific evidence in the present.  Conversely, evolution is rightly classified as pseudoscience since it is purported to be science and yet cannot be demonstrated by observations or experimentation in the present.

We can trust the Creator with what He has revealed about the past, and we can trust Him with our future. Praise Him!
