"Science and Creationism," the chapter "Repealing the Enlightenment"
Coffin said some amazing things. Quoting from the same book,
pp. 292-3, the court transcript said (Ennis was on the prosecution):
Ennis: You have had only two articles in standard
scientific journals since getting your Ph.D. in 1955,
Coffin: That's correct.
Ennis: The Burgess Shale is said to be 500 million
years old, but you think it is only 5,000 years old,
Ennis: You say that because of information from the
Scriptures, don't you?
Ennis: If you didn't have the Bible you could believe
the age of Earth to be many millions of years, couldn't
Coffin: Yes, without the Bible
Ennis: Creation science is not falsifiable, is it?
Coffin: No, it is in the same category as evolution
Ennis: No further questions.
