A part-time nurse from West Bend, Wisconsin, set up an interactive creation-based booth with a sign reading “Interpret the Evidence” at a local county fair. TheWisconsin State Journal reported on Mary Weigand’s booth with the headline “Creationist seeks to debunk scientific fact at Dane County Fair.”1 But was she actually trying to debunk “scientific fact,” or was this headline just a mudslinging smear?
By examining fossils on display, booth attendees investigated for themselves whether or not fossils show a gradual transition between life forms, as Darwinism predicts. The booth presented an alternative scientific explanation that appears to fit the fossil data much better. Each visitor was left to discern whether fossils show discrete created kinds with no undisputed transitions between forms, as biblical creation predicts.2
The news response to this booth claimed that the idea that the world is thousands of years old is incompatible with “techniques such as radioactive isotope dating.” Supposedly, these techniques “repeatedly conclude that some geological features are hundreds of millions of years old.”1 But what if overwhelming scientific evidence actually demands that the world is thousands, not millions or billions, of years old, and that the radioisotope dating techniques are unreliable? Weigand may well be familiar with these reports, unlike the State Journal reporter and the evolutionists he interviewed….
