have you ever noticed?

real scientists tend to look for evidence to support their theories.

creation scientists tend to look for gaps in opposing theories such as evolution and the big bang theory to give credit to their theories.

Update:

there are gaps in any theory. the goal of a scientist is to fill those gaps, not by evoking supernatural causes, but by looking for natural phenomena which explain it.

Update 2:

justin c, evolutionists are constantly having to prove it. there are constantly new theories in biology about how living organisms function. one would think if any of these theories disproved evolution, the strength of the theory of evolution would be weakened. however, every new scientific theory that comes about only enforces the theory further.

Update 3:

lion of juda, isn't is peculiar that these alleged "former atheist" jump on the creationism bandwagon? why, when there are allegedly other "real scientific" theories that oppose evolution without evoking religion?

    Creation science a.k.a. intelligent design is not science. Science requires falsifiability. ID suffers from lack of falsifiability; evolutionary theory does not.

    The fact is that the only reason these "gaps" are known at all is because scientists have pointed them out and debate them. Without the very scientists creationists criticize creationists wouldn't even have an argument because they do zero research themselves.

    And the most hilarious thing about creationists criticisms is that some 'gaps' have been eliminated by new research and they don't even know it because they pick only the parts of other people's research they like..

    One good example - "How can we be related to apes when apes have 24 chromosomes and humans 23." Addressed, answered and gap eliminated. But creationists still parade it around.

    No...real scientists look at the evidence impartially...then form the theory...and from the evidence comes a proof that cannot be refuted.

    Evolutonists and Creationists look for the gaps in the opposing theories and only accept what supports "their" theory....they are both ignoring what is not relevant to their beliefs...

    Until both sides drop their hypothesis and just look at the evidence...I'm not buying into any part of their arguments...

    Have you noticed that there are many questions and challenges now refuting many of the so called scientific theories concerning the nature and origin of the universe? Scientists can be an arrogant bunch that takes license into mocking other ideas until, of course, they have to go back to the drawing board.

    "real scientists tend to look for evidence to support their theories"

    Actually, real scientist do not over looks gaps in their theories. Anyone can list the reasons their ideas are true, a real scientist will list the reasons it could be false. Try reading Richard Feynman's comencment address on "Cargo Cult Science" (who was an athiest by the way, but an honest scientist on what it took to be real science).

    There are a large and growing number of 'former Atheist Evolutionary Scientist that have seen the delibrate fabrications of the evolutionary world, they (The Creation Scientist) seek to expose those Liars as the liars that they are.

    It's because of their stance in pop culture and societies "generally accepted" opinion. Evolutionist have kind of established themselves as top dog, and the burden of proof seems to be on the shoulders of Creationists now. If it wasn't blindly accepted as truth because of how long we've heard it in school etc, evolutionists would still have to be "proving" it to everyone like Creationists are doing now.

    To me,real scientist are looking for cures, inventions, energy sources, etc. I don't consider creation scientists as nothing but anti-christian supporters...who sits around and think of ways to disprove there is a God...

    not quite, often real scientists set off with a theory, test that theory, and then try to disprove it themselves. creation scientists tend to keep what supports their theories and discount the rest.
