The Truthiness of Things
Going through my old blogposts and this one caught my eye.
Have you ever had anyone say to you, ‘I know what the “evidence” says, but I just can’t accept it because my gut tells me otherwise.’? I have. A friend told me that that he knows that humans did not evolve because his gut tells him so and for him, that is enough. No matter what the evidence says, he has to go with his gut.
This is an example of truthiness.
Young-Earth Creationism falls into this category. Despite all the claims that Creationists make, the bottom line is, YECism is more based on truthiness than on truth.
I could go on, but I won’t.
