Evolution research has many practical applications. What practical applications does creationism have?

Posted a few minutes ago:

"creation is as scientific as evolution,"

The theory of evolution has been put to practical use:

Bioinformatics, a multi-billion-dollar industry, consists largely of the comparison of genetic sequences. Descent with modification is one of its most basic assumptions.

Diseases and pests evolve resistance to the drugs and pesticides we use against them. Evolutionary theory is used in the field of resistance management in both medicine and agriculture.

Evolutionary theory is used to manage fisheries for greater yields.

Artificial selection has been used since prehistory, but it has become much more efficient with the addition of quantitative trait locus mapping.

Knowledge of the evolution of parasite virulence in human populations can help guide public health policy.

Sex allocation theory, based on evolution theory, was used to predict conditions under which the highly endangered kakapo bird would produce more female offspring, which retrieved it from the brink of extinction.

Phylogenetic analysis, which uses the evolutionary principle of common descent, has proven its usefulness.

Directed evolution allows the "breeding" of molecules or molecular pathways to create or enhance products, including enzymes, pigments, antibiotics, flavors, biopolymers, and bacterial strains to decompose hazardous materials.

The evolutionary principles of natural selection, variation, and recombination are the basis for genetic algorithms, an engineering technique that has many practical applications, including aerospace engineering, architecture, astrophysics, data mining, drug discovery and design, electrical engineering, finance, geophysics, materials engineering, military strategy, pattern recognition, robotics, scheduling, and systems engineering,

If creationism is as scientific as evolution, creationists should be able to point to many practical applications of their research. Let's see them.

    They are an embarrassment to all Christians and to America.

    Did you hear they're trying to get that YEC nonsense in Texas schools?

    What they are actually doing is fracturing Christianity and causing more young people to become atheists (which is exactly what their cult leaders intend).

    Whether it has practical application or not, it doesn't matter. Evolution theory just makes sense and genetic changes do happen. It also explains the fossil record, how it goes from simpler life forms to more complex and with some mass extinctions on occasion (I think it is said that there have been 4 mass extinctions).

    There isn't any theory to creationism. They haven't even demonstrated that half-lives can be changed from millions of years to seconds.

  • Are you kidding? Just think how many problems could be solved just by saying "God diddit!"?

    No more trying to find cures for disease.

    No more trying to solve world hunger.

    No more trying to improve the Human condition.

    Here are the practical applications coming from Creationists:

    Jailing, Burning, Ripping, Drowning, etc anyone you don't like

    and has a large sum of farm land that you in fact want.

    I don't think evolution really has application there. It's genetic engineering. Evolution is population genetics and completely randomized mutations.

    It is history though, and it's useful for an understanding of how we came to be.

    It is a crass lack of knowledge, not to know that - because and only due to the Scriptures, Hebrew and Greek - Sir Isaac Newton discovered the "fluxions" (Calculus), the Theory of Light, the Earth's diameter, the unique angle of reflexion of water drops in the rain (a phenomena) and a myriad of other things.

    It is not the discrepancy of ideas what brings in annoyance, it's the arrogance on expressing ideas that - till this 21st Century - been considered just that: a THEORY. Sir Isaac Newton formulated - based on knowledge of the Scriptures, LAWS.

    After almost 500 years, no change on his Laws have been revised, changed or rebuked. How many different Evolution Theories are there? Thank you.

    Go, read him.

    Get some education and stop being an arrogant person, simply because you read a few books.

      Do you even know the difference between a theory and law? Law simply describes the behavior of a phenomenon. Theories, on the other hand, explains the behavior of the said phenomenon.

      So theories are superior to laws because it answers the question WHY. Theories changes depending on new evidences.
