What a retard!!I'm embarrassed to call myself a geoscientist now.

Still I should not be surprised since MANY geoscientists working in very specialized subjects in the oil patch are die hard "earth crated in 6 days" fundamentalists.. jcw

Here here, i too am ebarrassed, as Earth Sciences is an area that should turn you against the very idea of a deity creating planets, life etc.

I was never religious, but my geology training at uni most certainly gave me the evidence and impetus for enquiry into how things came about, and if there were any latent doubts they were utterly destroyed by my study.

I'm somewhat disturbed to here that there are many geoscientists out there who could believe in a creationist world view, it beggers belief (pardon the pun).

I don't consider myself very intelligent but come on, the most basic concept of geology should help you understand that there is a perfectly natural non-deity reason for how the universe is/was and evolved.
