The Kansas Board of Education insists that teachers offer alternatives to the Copernican theory of the universe because "any fool can see that the sun, moon and the stars revolve around the Earth."

As the summer of 1999 Kansas incident shows, the creationists have some sway in our society. They publish books and papers that convince people that evolution is not a reasonable explanation of life, but those works are deeply flawed. I am collecting here arguments that show their egregious errors.

You cannot prove a hypothesis, only disprove it. So said Carl Popper. But this also means that one can disprove a false proof and by this means we can dismember the creationist arguments.

Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows a fossil sequence, the list of species represented changes through time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the practice of squeeezing one's eyes shut and wailing "does not!". []

History and Statement of Ownership

This web site originated on a governmental computer. It was moved here not because of creationist pressure but rather because the site was being picked up in searches for the term 'rebuttal' when scientists were looking for rebuttals to their grant proposals. To governmental officials this did not seem to be an appropriate result of such searches, so I agreed to move the site. This is a sad comment on the pervasive stupidity creationists have created. The evidence is clear, however, that creationists (when acting as creationists) do not contribute to general scientific knowledge.

This page is supported entirely with my personal resources on my own time.
No governmental funds, equipment or electrons are being used.
