“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”
“…science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.”
“The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.”
“To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists…is at the center of true religiousness.
-In this sense…I belong to the ranks of devoutly religious men.”
–Albert Einstein (1879-1955), The German-born American physicist.

In, “The Supreme Court Decision And Its Meaning,”
an evaluation of Louisiana’s 1987
“Act for Balanced Treatment of Creation Science and Evolution,” it states:
- “Creation-science is the scientific evidence supporting abrupt appearance in complex form. That evidence includes the abrupt appearance of complex life in the fossil record, the systematic gaps between fossil categories, the genetic limits on possible change, and the vast information content of all living organisms [DNA, etc.].
Seven judges of the Fifth U.S. Court of Appeals (the lower court decision) forcefully agreed in a dissenting opinion, that creation-science indeed is scientific, as well as that balanced treatment for a creation-science and evolution indeed is constitutional.”

Attorney Wendell R. Bird’s entire concise evaluation (No. 170) may be reviewed at:
In fieldwork studies, publications, and debates with non-creationists, scientific creationists can, and have for long applied their scientific methods rather successfully. –And, in needed historical retrospect, it should be noted that:
“Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Lord Chancellor of England, is considered primarily responsible for the formulation and establishment of the scientific method. Sir Francis was a devout believer in the Bible.”
And, “Even though Galileo (1564-1642) was officially censured for his *heliocentric teachings by the Church, he himself believed the Bible and that it supported his views (of God’s special creation.”)

In addition, Norman Geisler, Ph.D. (Loyola), in his book, lists,
“Creationists Who Founded Modern Science:
Kepler-Astronomy; Pascal-Hydrostatics; Boyle-Chemistry; Newton-Physics; Steno-Stratigraphy; Faraday-Magnetic theory; Babbage-Computers; Agassiz-Ichthyology; Simpson-Gynecology; Mendel-Genetics; Pasteur-Bacteriology; Kelvin-Thermodynamics; Lister-Antiseptic surgery; Maxwell-Electrodynamics; and Ramsay-Isotopic chemistry.”
