The Mother of All Presuppositions

"One of the difficulties, in approaching the issue of a biblical view of origins," write Answers in Genesis apologist Paul Taylor, "is the failure to notice the difference between presupposition and evidence."

Taylor is quite eager to believe an unobservable God presiding over an unlocatable heaven is the author of all things on earth, but he finds it fantastic to believe that a fossil which you might hold in your hand is evidence that life has evolved.

Taylor's piece is, in fact, a classic example of the failure to notice that placing faith in the scientific accuracy of a bible written by people who didn't know the earth orbits the sun is the mother of all presuppositions.
