Is this why ID/creationists bring up Mathematics so much?

Because they think numbers are so much more, you know, malleable than real physical evidence?





After all, it is a bit more work to ignore evolutionary patterns and make up stories to explain away fossils, radiometric dating, Galapagos finches, genes, pseudogenes, homologies, vestigial organs, patterns of distribution and succession, ring speciation, evo-devo... to mention just a few among myriad growing piles of evidence (not to mention the countless examples of plain bad "design"), than make up some equations. (With all due apologies to my mathematician friends!). Isn't "proof" in the made-up-mathematical sense so much easier to do (especially if you make up the solution in advance) than finding actual evidence to refute an empirical theory?

Very interesting. Well designed cartoon on top of it.

Thanks for sharing!
