The root of all evils :creation science and the fundamentalist mission
This work examines creation science and its relationship
to American Protestant fundamentalism. The thesis argues
that scientific creationism is inextricably linked to
American Protestant fundamentalism. More specifically, this
thesis demonstrates that creation science is a direct
historical product of fundamentalist thought, theology,
social character, and organizational structure. Indeed,
creation science is most clearly understood in light of its
historical and social relationship to fundamentalism.
Scientific creationism is the newest phase in the
fundamentalist rejection of modernist thought and
evolutionary theory. The thesis concludes that creation
science is not a valid scientific endeavor, and is in instead
a form of Biblical apologetics.
