Creationist Geology and Intuition: Isn't Science Just Common Sense?
Padian, Kevin
Reports of the National Center for Science Education, v17 n6 p28-29 Nov-Dec 1997
Discusses the approach of creationist groups to the distortion of science and the selective presentation of often-apocryphal evidence. Argues that the strategy is persuasive to those poorly educated in science, that people like to be persuaded that their views are right, and that they are intelligent people capable of figuring out science for themselves--what so-called experts know is just opinion.
