All things in the universe were created and made by God in the six literal days of the creation week described in Genesis 1:1-2:3, and confirmed in Exodus 20:8-11. The creation record is factual, historical and perspicuous; thus all theories of origins or development which involve evolution in any form are false. All things which now exist are sustained and ordered by God's providential care. However, a part of the spiritual creation, Satan and his angels, rebelled against God after the creation and are attempting to thwart His divine purposes in creation.Remember, if you believe in evolution in any form, or that the universe is actually 13 billion years old, according to these folks who want to staff science faculty positions in Texas you have been corrupted by Satan and his agents. Great.
To the arguments of the Houston Chronicle against granting the ICR request, let me add two more (both admittedly self-serving): this seriously hurts our ability to recruit high tech professionals to this state, and this puts Texas science and engineering faculty at a competitive disadvantage for funding. For example, ordinarily it would be a plus for a large center proposal to the NSF to be coupled to the state's education initiatives. In Texas, that's not clear.
