The Creation Musem is not science - it's propaganda posing as science. (Review of the Creation Science Museuml) And anyone can misue a tool - so that a scientific tool/method was misued to show how a hat tested incorrectly doesn't prove anything. If you want to have faith in a 24-hour creation and a 6,000 - 10,000 year old Earth then you can have that faith! But don't mix that up with science. Science overwhelmingly supports the fact the the Earth is over 10,000 years old. You may not understand the science, you may want to ignore the science - but it's there. (For example: Radio Metric Dating: A Christian Perspective.)

stvmen88 - Dr. Carl Baugh, a very learned, qualified scientist,as well as Christian.
Actually many people (even young-earth creationists) don't think Dr. Baugh is very learned or qualified. He doesn't have a science degree from an accedited university. It appears that he granted himself a science degree from a branch of his own unaccredited Bible school. Even Creationist organizations question his "science" (see this article). He really is not a credible source at all - for people on either side of the discussion.
