Creationist Scientist Wants Airtime on Cosmos for Creationist Views


Creation scientist Dr. Danny Faulkner would like to see Cosmos devote some airtime to creationist theories.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the follow-up to Carl Sagan’s 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, premiered March 9 and has explored our universe from the scientific lenses of astronomy, astrophysics, biology, and more. But Dr. Danny Faulkner, a creation scientist with a background in astronomy and physics, wishes the series would present the Creationist point of view as well.

Faulkner expressed his thoughts on The Janet Mefferd Show, which takes a Christ-centered look at current events. Host Mefferd asked if Cosmos will “ever give a Creationist any time,” to which Faulkner replied, “Creationists aren’t even on the radar screen for them; they wouldn’t even consider us plausible at all.”

“Boy, but when you have so many scientists who simply do not accept Darwinian evolution,” said Mefferd, “it seems to me that that might be something to throw in there. You know, the old, ‘some scientists say this, others disagree and think this’ — but that’s not even allowed.”

“Consideration of special Creation is definitely not open for discussion, it would seem,” Faulkner added.

Faulkner’s comments come after the second episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which covered evolution and the origin of life. Given evolution is not “just a theory,” but rather one of the most reliably established facts in science and the foundation of modern biology, it is not exactly surprising that a science series would not present special creation as an alternative.

We ask that readers remain respectful in their comments and not attack anyone’s religious views. Thank you.
