Submission + - A Virtually science-less parallel universe? 1

diewlasing writes: I recently read an article which stated that Oxford scientists proved mathematically, that there are parallel universes, where every outcome is played out in its own "world". So I was wondering, what if people who push for creation science to be taught in schools actually had their way? What if the world was flooded with creation scientists. There would be real scientists of course, but in the course of human evolution (pun intended) more creation scientists were trained. And I'm speaking of the US in particular. Would our science and engineering courses be plagued with so many inaccuracies that we would never be able to engineer anything useful or contribute to human knowledge? This is a bit of hyperbole, but keep in mind, there are many complaints on how the US is lagging behind in science and engineering.

  • It's not like the rest of the world is going to lap the US in science and technology. Unless you live in Japan or Europe, you really have to stretch things to come out ahead. Africa, the Middle East, India, China, every country in the Americas south of the US, are not more advanced.

    Anywhile, creationists are not the majority in the US unless you are talking about the electoral college.
