Q: Do creationists and evolutionists use the same science?

A: Of course they do!

Evolutionists often make the claim that creation scientists are just talking about the “religious” view of creation, whereas they’re talking about the “scientific” view of evolution.

However, the truth of the matter is that both sides use the same operational science. If this seems strange, think about it this way. Creationists accept the science of genetics—and so do evolutionists. Creationists accept the science of natural selection—and so do evolutionists. Creationists accept the science of geology—they sort rocks into sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic, for instance.

The operational science is not the issue—it’s the particular views of history that separate creationists and evolutionists. Both sides have different beliefs about the past that cause them to interpret the evidence in different ways.

But, even though the interpretations are different, only a biblical view interprets operational and historical science consistently … and explains the facts we observe!

For more information, see Creation: ‘where’s the proof?’.
