Bill Nye recently argued that because creationism "offers no ability to predict the outcome of any experiment..." people who hold to creationism "cannot build, invent, and innovate..." The same people, he argues, "would be out-competed by engineers, scientists, and investors in other parts of the world (who hold to evolution)."
Nye's statements are surprisingly illogical. The scientific method works fine for creationists and evolutionists alike! Creationists choose to interpret the appearance of the earth through the lens of Scripture. However, that decision in no way impedes creationists from either conducting basic science or from applying the resulting discoveries to the development of new technologies.
I personally know at least one Biblical creationist who works as a professional scientist. A friend also reminded me that the inventor of MRI technology, Ray Damadian, is a Bible-believing Christian who rejects evolution as unscientific. And, last but not least, Sir Isaac Newton was a both a creationist and one of the greatest scientists of all time!
