Since Fundamentalist-Creationists believe in strictly literal biblical interpretation as the sole source for explaining origins, is it fair to conclude that their attempts to discover and proffer so-called scientific alternate conclusions to many mainstream scientific theories is actually from their perspective heretical, akin to Moses striking the rock twice or David counting his troops? If they really believe what they say shouldn’t they solely counter by saying “this is what the bible says so this is what I believe”? It seems that they are in opposition to their don’t add to it or take away from it tenet.
