So I'm not making this idea up k. It's simply a fact that at least one motivation for scientists rejecting the Big Bang theory was philosophical, not scientific.

Is it so hard to believe that scientists are human too? <g>


No.

But it is hard to believe that the initial arguments against the BB theory can in any way be compared to the arguments against ID.

For them to be in any way similar, there would have had to have been a scientist that had based his assumptions on the idea that there could be no creator. There haven't been any of those and that is ALL ID could possibly argue against.

The BB was supported by actual, documentable, falsifiable data in the positive- not just an idea without any way to disprove it. That's why it was accepted so quickly.

Come up with a better explanation, and we'll listen. No one has (yet).
