No, buddy, it really really isn't. A blog post saying that the theory of evolution by natural selection is non-falsifiable sort of betrays its total disregard for actual science.

The Bible doesn't say anything about a flat earth, and it has dinosaurs, not dragons. And actual science shows that the earth was created by God.

Sure, many manuscripts are similar, but I personally possess a few that prove there are variations in the manuscripts of the Bible.

Also, although I didnt read the link, science doesnt adhere to any faith in particular. It's just simply a study of nature. If anyone is advocating for creationism as a scientist, then that's not science anymore. Theology comes in.

I even acknowledge this as an evolutionary creationist Muslim.

Even if there are variations , they can't be too different. And if a scientist is saying creationism is true, that's because the evidence supports it.

Except scientists don't say creationism is true (or at least those in the field who provide actual evidence for their claims do not say that), or at least if you take the creation stories literally they are not seen as true by scientists. AS to science showing earth was made by god, no it doesn't, because science can make no claims about the supernatural, and god is part of the supernatural.

Because the problem is, science relies on evidence based on the natural world. Whether or not a scientist is religious.

It can't be documented, because science can only speak on the natural universe (ie what is observable), and god is not part of the natural universe. As such science can't say that god does or does not exist let alone that the universe was made by a god.

Well, what I meant by "documented " was research papers published by scientists on their findings, or theories they came up with, based on the evidence they found.

I never mentioned a God in my comment. When I said, "whether or not a scientist is religious", I meant any scientist, regardless of any belief they have, studies nature without any bias, but to find available evidence to form theories.

The problem is any view of the world that comes into play when it comes to science, doesn't make a finding scientific based on a religious observation.

If we argue for creationism (whatever form it is), it is only an opinion, and not evidence based on science. Which opinions aren't scientific either. They might help form theories, but that's it.

Most of the articles on creation.com are not scientific no matter many degrees in a university these self proclaimed scientists get or claim to get.

Creation.com is a psuedoscientific website at best. Normally though it simply lies about scientific research.

Also, you have to look at the University the alleged scientists attended. Is the degree legit and from a widely respected institution, or was it an unaccredited one from Bob Jones University or Pensacola Christian College?

EDIT: Still wouldn't accept that source, though. I like peer-reviewed articles.

Hence why they failed. Rather spectaculary in the flagellum case, since the evidence they needed to negate their hypothesis was three doors down the hallway; but they never bothered to look.

Still. Design inference and irreducible complexity were creative ideas. Promoting tunnevision and therefor failing; but still a spark of creativity.

There's an answer to that.

Organic material can survive for hundreds of millions of years under the right conditions. The very existence of a fossil indicates that the body it resulted from was incredibly well preserved. I don't see the point you are trying to make.

Basically it says that certain factors about the soft tissues, as well as the situations under which the fossilization of the bones occurred might have effected the degradation rate.

There's an answer to that. The soft tissue in dinosaur bones remained (and it's been years since I read an article on that, debunking that creationist claim, so correct me anyone if I'm wrong) because some life-forms of some sort lived in there and made their home in it. I believe it's the same kind of forms that are in pond scum (again correct me if I'm wrong people, I really need updating on my info. It's been years since I read that one article haha)
