I know the title of this entry seems like an oxymoronic statement, but intelligent creationist exist. I have a friend Rahat who graduated from University of Maryland with a bachelor in biology, later went to earn a masters in biotechnology from George Washington University, and was later accepted into medical school. He later dropped out of med school in favor of attending law school. This man has the same understanding of the laws of chemistry, physics and biology that I do as a graduate student of evolutionary biology. He understands the concept of evolution as well as any real scientist, however, he is a creationist. Today he tried to convince me that science proved the existence of god, because in philosophical physics there is no solution to the universe but god. He tried to tell me that the laws of physics disagree with the idea of time being infinite in both directions and that someone had to have created time. He honestly believed that science didn't make sense with out god, and that we all had to have been created because there "was no other way". Now all of us tend to think of creationist as uneducated, republican, right wing Chritian / Islamic idiots but obviously some of them are not. The only conclusion I can come to from talking with him and knowing his academic track record is that he is mentally ill. He must have some sort of psychological disorder to understand the science behind our modern understanding of the universe and life on Earth and still reject it in favor of creation mythology. I walked away from the conversation feeling sick that someone would waste their education in such a way.
