It is so sad that millions of dollars are being spent on researching the universe, but the underlying philosophy is often that scientists want to find answers to how life arose, and in this case, ?from where diseases come from.? They are ?willingly ignorant? that the God of the universe has already given us the answers as to how life arose (Genesis 1:1) and also as to why there are diseases?because of sin.
Ham seems to think that all that money is just pork-barrel spending, and that scientific budgets are larded with needless expenditures. Alas, his concept of science is rooted in a naive caricature of Bacon, and would would keep our society mired in the muck.
