Those who believe they know the history of creation by Divine revelation will tend to accept information consistent with that truth and challenge information that is not. In contrast, those whose world view is largely determined empirically will tend to use new information to modify what they think is the truth.

I think history is on my side on this issue.


don't know if this is really relevant to your point.....

but, to the extent biases and preconceptions play a part in whether one accepts Creation or Darwin --it's interesting that lots of theists have no trouble with Darwin, but no Atheists (it seems) believe in Creationism.

...... my position --Darwinism doesn't eliminate god, but does 'constrain' god (mostly by what it says about H.saps) -- it makes the god of the bible look even more implausible... thus all the twitching.
