Do Creationists Think That Various Scientific Disciplines Represent A Vast Conspiracy?

Let’s be honest here, shall we? As a young earth creationist, I think it’s fair to assume that you think that geology, biology, and astronomy, among other fields, all represent a vast conspiracy.  (posted by Dan in the comment section of this post)

Dan and I are discussing whether evolution should be classified as a science or a religion.  Dan made the above comment as part of our discussion.  I now come to you…do you think that young earth creationists look at the various fields of scientific study that Dan listed represent a conspiracy against creation and creationists?  I don’t and you will see my response to Dan if you read the all comments.

Basically I told Dan the creationists and evolutionists have the same data and the we just interpret it differently.  This difference arises due to our different presuppositions.  Do you agree with my thoughts here?  If not, how would you answer Dan’s comment?

I am looking forward to your responses as I they will be very enlightening.

    Tom – I agree with you regarding, “creationists and evolutionists have the same data and the we just interpret it differently. This difference arises due to our different presuppositions”. What is interesting is that the Christian will own their bias/presuppostion up front while the evolutionist will claim they have no bias/presuppostion and that they were simply converted by objective reasoning. Confirmation bias is a great psychological study and one that blindsides most on the evolution side of the debate.
