Do any scientists accept creation?

Update:

No relevant expertise? Here come the qualifications. I'm not talking about dentists and pharmacists. Microbiologists, biologists, physicists, geneticists, paleontologists. These are scientists. Or can we dismiss those too.

    The truth is there is a creator behind life. Whether the creator is an eternal universe out there in the multiverses, aliens, some kind of unknown material that can spontaneously cause things to pop into existence, or an intelligent creator /God who purposefully created life that has a mind etc. So the exact same reason why atheists would have for not believing in God ( which most would say is because they don't know enough about the origin of life yet and someday will find out eventually, can also agree their not knowing can also be a reason for why they shouldn't deny the possibility of a God)

    None that can actually spell "scientist".

    Einstein and Newton both recognized intelligent design in nature and the ones who are smart will say they are agnostic if they doubt. My brother of same sign I am smart as Einstein and did not talk much until he was three and that is because I talked for him so much he did not have to talk too much when we were growing up together and deep thinker.

      It is exactly my point. The guy is a chemist and in one book he makes claims about the footprints at the Paluxy River, that contradicts the findings of experts in the field. His is a worthless non-expert.

    Yes they do, there are Christian scientists that do and other scientists that do accept it. For sure look it up

      There are Christian scientists, many of them, and many that follow other faiths. None of them that I have ever heard of interpret any of the creation stories as literal.

    The title scientist is broad, any biologist will most likely not be a creationist. But a electrical engineer could be considered a scientist and with no formal training in the area of biology will claim to be a creationist.

    That is a common deception used by creationists, they list "scientists" that have no relevant expertise and claim they reject evolution. They will even list a dentist, a chemist and a pharmacist and claim SEE SCIENTISTS REJECT EVOLUTION!

    It is an appeal to authority falacy, appeals to those qualified in the field is not a fallacy but when a person points to someone totally unqualified and claim their status as "scientist" should make them an authority, they are being deceptive.

      All scientists are familiar with and use the scientific method in their work. Whether they are biologists or some other profession related to evolution is not the point, it is a matter of knowing how to reason on the principles of science and draw conclusions..

    Very few, and they're not generally looked at very favorably by other scientists.

      Yeah, clearly Newton wasn’t worthy of his name.
