I've made this challenge before and have never gotten a response. I'll try one more time.What makes a scientific theory different from a nonscientific one? The answer is simple. A scientific theory explains events without resorting to supernatural causes and in a way that can be empirically tested. Evolution is a scientific theory because it can be tested by experiments and observations. I have already given some examples of scientific findings that would disprove the evolutionary theory.Now if creationists believe that their creation theory is a scientific one, then they should be able to describe how this theory can be tested. In particular, they should be able to describe what experiments or observations would convince them that creationism is wrong. If they cannot, then their theory is not scientific and therefore does not belong in a science curriculum.I think it important for all people, and particularly Christians, to be intellectually honest. Therefore, if creationists cannot answer this challenge, I think it only right that they desist from claiming their theory to be scientific. There is no shame in believing in a religious doctrine. There is shame in making claims under false pretenses.
