In our wintery economic climate, CNBC muses whether creationism is turning into a booming business. "There seems to be a growing demand for museums on a mission to debunk evolutionary theory and promote the belief that life was created by God as laid out in Genesis," Drew Guarini writes, referring to the expanding creationist business plans in Kentucky.
What I said recently about Atheism applies to agnosticism as well (See "Atheism", previously). Because both ignore the laws of thermodynamics, both are members of the modern Flat Earth Society.
Atheists say definitively there is no God; agnostics say they are not sure.
Atheism is a religion because it believes an article of faith, that is, something important that cannot be proven. Agnosticism is not a religion but many are agnostics.
Meanwhile, Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis is apparently inundated with requests for a response to Bill Nye's remarks on creationism.
With the Republican convention coming to a close, you might be wondering where the GOP's presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, stands on creationism and evolution. According to Glenn Beck's The Blaze, he is an evolutionist. In a May 2007 article posted in The New York Times, Romney is quoted as saying "I believe that God designed the universe and created the universe, and I believe evolution is most likely the process he used to create the human body."
