I didn't post that to say the existence of dark matter is more or less plausible than the existence of God. I'm saying that people (Bill Nye comes to mind) who publicly say that teaching creationism is a waste of time, but belive dark matter should be taught, are exhibiting an enormous amount of hypocrisy. Which is too bad, because I like Bill Nye, as do my kids.
If you go back to my very first post on this subject in this thread, I said no side is going to change the others mind - I just find it hilarious that Creationists are mocked by evolutionists who somehow think their beliefs are a proven fact with no room for disputing.
Burnsy and bad_luck fail to get that. Tec does, to his credit.
Nothing is a proven fact. I also don't know if George Washington existed. Maybe it's a conspiracy, and he never was the 1st president. It's possible. But I am likely to argue with the person who says that this is the case.
Based on what has been taught to me, and research I've done on my own, by people who I assume aren't lying to me, I am very confident in believing that the Earth is much much older than 10,000 years old.
