2 Peter3: 5. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: There are many metrics that the Evolutionist use to "prove" an old earth/Universe. The point the creationists are making is that the use of those metrics for those purposes are flawed as they assume uniformitarianism mechanisms. Those Mechanisms have been demonstrated to be susceptible to fluctuations with unknown variables and outright unproven assumptions, thus unreliable at best. The conclusions promoted based on them are dubious & dishonest as well. This not to mention that some of the metrics used could be identical in both old and young subjects. The point is that the dating mechanisms & the conclusion drawn from them, cannot be relied upon and what evidence exist is demonstrates youth not eons. However, I think the term creation science is still useful as it is just used simply to distinguish the differences between the methodologies of developing knowledge & understanding, Biblical v Philosophical. What we are ultimately left with is a FAITH in "evening and the morni ng" as just that, or some external privet interpretation to that, which yields a entirely different meaning.

Jack a copy to creation, because this is their cup of tea. This question is irrelevant. Creation science is a contradiction in terms. I repeat what I have said everywhere so often. When Adam was created, he was a young man, what , say 18 years old, and we know that creation scientists examining him would certify that he was 18.years old. We know that when Adam walked upon the earth in the garden, and waded in the river, creation scientists examining this river would declare it geologically as being millions of years old, yet we know that it is no more than a few weeks old... Likewise the tall cedars... in the forest.. Real annular rings showing the seasons......according to as God willed they would have had. Creation science is a contradiction in terms... God Created a geologically old world, instantly, perhaps a day, for our intellectual inferiority to accept. For so called Christians to say that God used controlled physical evolution over aeons, to produce this universe, is a denial of His infinite power. What next, some natural scientific explanation for rhe ressurection of Jesus? Its already coming. watch for it. Philip.
