Or at the very least, admit that a naturalistic approach to the world is the right way to go about it. I mean come on, even granting that all of us are wrong and there is a capital-g GOD, we would be unable to discern his interactions with the world from events that arise naturally. In other words, we'd be in essentially the same position as we are now (where everything looks natural).

So what's the difference? To your point, they need to stop attributing some things to God (ie why Tommy the Christian scored high on his spelling test) and other things to natural events (why Sam the Atheist scored high on HIS).

Sorry if that doesn't make much sense.

When creationist rely on tactics taught to them from generation to generation. I expect there views to be behind science. They will always have answers for science. A generic answer. They need to just admit science is right and go with the whole "it's a faith" argument.

As I understand it, the creationist account of HIV is that it is a product of mutations that have occurred after The Fall. Hard-core fundamentalists (the new brand, at least, who pay lip service to observational biology) tie themselves up in knots trying to fit things like viral mutagen shift in with their presupposed worldview in which the selection mechanism is rendered impotent.

How does the anti-evolutionist account for drug-resistant strains except to move the goalpost back by claiming that kinds =/= species? Cheap trick, imo. The creationist argument against speciation (which is the foundation of their argument against selection writ large) biols down to semantics.

LOL. Loved it. Especially when Eve let go of Adams hand after god zapped down HIV.

Thanks for sharing.
