Creationism and the Giant's Causeway

The controversy regarding the creationist explanation at the Giant's Causeway rumbles on.

The latest development involving the £18.5 million National Trust visitor centre, which opened in July, concerns documents released under a Freedom of Information request that suggest that the Stormont Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) considered making the inclusion of a Creationist viewpoint at the new Giant’s Causeway visitor centre a condition of it receiving millions of pounds in public money.

This new controversy comes after an extensive campaign by the intolerant, anti-creationists to have the creationist explanation removed entirely from the exhibition at the Causeway's visitor centre. Thankfully they have failed! While the National Trust did give some ground in response to the pressure they came under and reduced the prominence of the creationist explanation, they did not remove it entirely. It is still present and still informing people that there is an alternative explanation for the origin of the Causeway other than the evolutionist version. 

It is important in this debate to remember that facts do not speak for themselves. They are read and interpreted in the light of theory. The evolutionist won't countenance a divine Creator and a young earth and therefore must interpret everything they observe in this world within this prism. The Bible believer accepts the authority of the Word of God as coming from the only one who was present at the beginning of time. God's Word is the eye witness account. Therefore the creationist interprets the facts within this prism. Evolution is no more scientific than creationism is. 

Malcolm Muggeridge, no friend of Bible religion, once said:
I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has. Pascal Lectures, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
