Debunking Corner - Institute for Creation Research

Line-by-Line on the Institute for Creation Research

Creationism has so much to teach us, if only we’ll listen! At least, that’s the title of an article that appeared in US News & World Report this week, by Henry Morris III, head of the Institute of Creation Research. Oddly, though, it’s not the argument he makes. In the course of a two-page piece arguing for teaching creationism in public schools, not once does Morris argue that creationism is either scientific, or capable of generating scientific insights. Nor could he. Although the disparity between title & text is enough to make the article rebut itself, let’s take a closer look at Mr. Morris’ arguments - just for fun - line by line, paragraph by paragraph.
