New Creationism

New Creationism A new band of creationists now uses sophisticated arguments for an ‘Intelligent Designer” as the author of creation. This paper argues that (1) creationism is thinly disguised evangelical biblical literalism; (2) the “new” creationism is the old one in “designer clothes”; (3) the new creationism is less scientific than the old; and (4) either version of creationism contrasts sharply with LDS teachings of harmony between science and religion and a God who works within natural law.
