Can an Aerospace Engineer be a Creationist?

Taken behind our apartment complex. The NCSE/BCSE task force are looking for me.

Some evolutionists cannot distinguish between historical science (origins research) and observational (practical) science. There are those who believe that if you do not have the "proper" view of origins (evolutionary), then you are not really a scientist and are likely to make space rockets crash. Such views are not only ignorant, but bigoted. The fact is that your view of origins does not affect your ability to do real science. Creationist scientists are "real" scientists. Like so:
Dr Dewey Hodges has been a professor of aerospace engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta since 1986. A native of Tennessee, he received his M.S. (1970) and Ph.D. (1973) degrees in aerospace engineering from Stanford University in California. For sixteen years, he was a research scientist focusing on rotorcraft dynamics at the U.S. Army Aviation Systems Command at the NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View, California. An active Christian for his entire adult life, Dr Hodges has been an inspiration to many students and coworkers.
Later, we read:
I asked him how his faith interacts with his work. He replied, “There is an underlying order to the universe, and I especially see that order reflected in the equations I write.” He then related a story of how he and a colleague found some small mistakes in two foundational papers in the field of structural analysis. They eventually realized that the equations were much longer than they needed to be. “And I don’t think that it is an accident that the final analysis is simpler, and that the underlying interpretation is simpler.”
In another example, working with a professor while in graduate school, he published a paper about the equations of motion for helicopter blades. “It took pages and pages of equations,” he said, “but in 1990, I discovered a way to write better equations in just a few lines. In 2003, I discovered an even simpler way to write these equations. Now they are so simple that, not only can you write them from memory, but the computer code needed to solve them is far simpler.”
