  • The case of Giant’s Causeway’s “causation” is heating up, becoming a cause célèbre for evolutionists in a crescendo of clamor to cut out those with other opinions from even receiving common courtesy. The strategy seems to be to call those with differing opinions insulting names and demand they be expunged from the historical record. Thus, not only can God be written out of earth’s history but also those who accept His authoritative Word. Those who dare to see the scientific validity of God’s eyewitness account of earth’s history as a guide to understanding the untestable geologic events of the past are to be marginalized, minimized, and left in the rubble of Finn Gall’s retreat.

Despite the National Trust’s repeated declarations that it embraces the millions-of-years point of view, despite the fact that there really are no creationist exhibits at Giant’s Causeway, the National Trust has agreed to re-evaluate its decision to allow visitors to the new Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre to hear that some people believe that the earth is not millions of years old. The Trust notes in its statements that the exhibits are being publicly “misrepresented.” Planning to resolve the issue within four weeks, the Trust now states, “To ensure that no further misunderstanding or misrepresentation of this exhibit can occur, we have decided to review the interpretive materials in this section.” The National Trust’s exhibits do not promote or even explain creationist views, but, by admitting that some thinking human beings do, they have stepped on the toes of those who squeal loudly and demand their opponents’ existence should not even be acknowledged.
