The Bias of Methodological Creationism

Methodological Creationism is the application of the faith-based beliefs of Creationism to the processes of scientific research.

Defining Creationism

Creationism is the belief that the entire universe and all of life were created in a special act by a Creator. This is based on the concepts contained within Scripture with an emphasis on the Genesis account of a seven day act of creation. It states that the creation was originally made in a good condition and that over time it is deteriorating and getting worse due to the fall of man and the action of sin.

Creationism in the Sciences

When Creationism is applied to scientific study, it generally means that any scientific data or research that might contradict the Genesis Creation Account is automatically regarded as incorrect, in error, or will be ignored. This arbitrarily limits of the scope of investigation and opens the possibility of missing vital information, data, and knowledge. In essence, it undermines the scientific goal of following where the evidence leads.

If faith is correct, there should be confidence that following good science will lead to a creation model rather than an evolution model. Thus there should be no fear of dealing with scientific research.
