Creationist Cults

Rev Henry Morris' Falsehood Explained:
Age of Earth

This is probably one of the greatest lies Rev Gish spreads. The age of the Earth has been measured tens of thousands of times, and found to be very old! As the Creationist Chandra Wickramasinghe, the star witness in support of Creationism in the Arkansas "equal time" scam (Act 590), put it, one would "have to be crazy" to believe Earth is young.

When cross-examined about the young earth creationist notion that the universe was 10,000 years old, his reply was "one would have to be crazy to believe that." Could any rational scientist believe that the earth's geology can be explained by a single catastrophe? "No." Could any rational scientist believe that the earth is less than one million years old? "No."

So, what's Rev Gish's excuse? A liar, or a madman?

Wickramasinghe's firm understanding of biology was brought forth by asking him to read a passage from Evolution From Space [a book he co-authored with Sir Hoyle] which claimed that insects are in fact smarter than humans but are being very careful to not let on. These statements ended up completely undermining the case of the team [Gish et al] who paid his air fare. Judge Overton expressed confusion as to why the defense recruited Wickramasinghe; he ended up assuming that it must have been because Wickramasinghe was critical of both evolution and the scientific community.
