This is what concerns me most about "creation science". Perhaps I am being overwrought about this, but I believe that if "creation science" is taught in schools it will promote nihilism. Students will be taught that all of those scientists may be engaged in a giant conspiracy, that nothing is knowable unless you see it with your own eyes, that what is real reduces to one's own personal belief, or that the state can legislate truth. That is for those who will fall for the "creation science" curriculum. Those who see through it will become anti-theists, and will consider education a joke.
