has its own documentation of the creation
The special creation  The creation was all in eden, took 6 days, directed and 
constructed by God so therefore perfect
Special creations statements of facts
- Al species are created independent of each other
- Species don’t change overtime
- The creation was recent
1664 Archbishop James Usher used old Testament 
genealogies to calculate the earth’s age
Parson Naturalist Individuals who were both ordained by the church and 
held academic positions in the universities
Early scientific pioneers were strongly associated with 
the church. Back then the motivation was to find God 
through nature
o When they were looking at the earth, they were  looking for god o Carlous Linnaeus: he wanted to give everything a  name and he began learning of the vast diff which 
disproved the theories of the special creation. The 
knowledge caused him to go insane
What would a graph displaying western society’s 
knowledge over the past 2000 years look like
o Bagdad was the intellectual hub during the dark  ages. We actually  lost  knowledge during that point
background image o Why does society have drops in intellect?  They have rulers who put a clamp on 
knowledge. When society doesn’t have 
something to look at, they fall onto their 
traditions, and then they cant learn and evolve
Scholasticism: faith or belief in authoritative figures or 
scripture us the sole source of knowledge
o Elevates faith over reason; states that nature s  beyond mortal understanding, physical senses are 
not to e trusted, believe something despite 
evidence to the contrary
o Flourishes in societies with a suppressed education
o You don’t think on your own, you look to an rely on 
authority figures What brought us out of the dark ages? o The printing press. Information was now cheap and  easy to get Rationalism: the theory that reason, rather than 
experience or authority, provides a primary source of 
o God gave you a brain to use
o All individuals have the ability to reason out truth
o Jefferson: the all seeing eye on top of the pyramid is
supposed to represent that people at diff corners of 
the world can use their reasoning to climb an 
intellectual ladder, eventually coming to the same
