Creationism isn't a search for answers. It is an answer. It fails the test of Occam's razor: it does not adequately explain the observations, and it postulates unnecessary entities. Call it what you like, but it is not science.

Occam's Razor is not a test - It is a postulate that is not necessarily true - IE the simplest answer to life, the universe and everything being: God.

Modern science considers data first and tries to apply Occam's Razor to find the simplest solution given the set of data. By itself, Occam's Razor is an argument for God, not science.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!
