Trying to get your average Joe creationist to understand the phrase scientific theory is as hard as getting a fish to enjoy mountaineering. Its an unimagined world for them - it requires a complete reversal of their normal modes of thinking and being. The fact that humans could explain the complexities of this world without a creating God is a world view they cannot grasp. It's like asking a tuna if it appreciates the view from the top of Mount Everest. Bunc

Ayrshire Astronomer's comet

A COMET discovered by Scottish astronomer Robert McNaught has transformed southern hemisphere skies this week.
Thousands of people have gathered in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and South Africa to watch Comet McNaught, the brightest comet seen from Earth in more than 40 years. It is one of very few comets that can be seen by the naked eye in daylight and is around 140 million km from the Earth. The comet consists of a head bigger than Mount Everest and a tail that stretches 30 million km into space. Robert McNaught, 50, originally from Prestwick, Ayrshire, was the first to spot the comet. He was working at Siding Spring Observatory in NSW when he first saw it last August. It is so bright that some people in Auckland contacted the emergency services fearing that a plane had fallen out of the sky.
