One of the most amazing examples of atheistic bigotry and ignorance was in a comment, paraphrasing: "When you're miles above the Earth, you don't want your fate in the hands of someone that believes in fairy tales like the Bible". Not only did this guy display massive ignorance of creationist beliefs and capabilities, but seemed willingly ignorant of the fact that there are many creationist scientists.
Back to my original point, creationists have indeed been in space. To cite my article and supporting links on "Atheists Can't Protest Everything":
One creationist astronaut in particular, Colonel James Irwin, was a biblical creationist who spent time encouraging creation science and urging people to stand up for the truth. Note the science stuff he did, too.There are followers of Jesus who have been on space missions. What I think will be the biggest irritant of all [to atheists who protest things] is the fact that Bibles were taken on NASA missions to the moon, and many astronauts were people of great faith. Although they were on microfilm, Edgar Mitchell had the written Word of God with him on the moon. Also, the Lord's Supper was observed on the lunar surface. Dave Scott left a Bible on the Rover on the Apollo 15 mission, and the astronauts did a brief but touching ceremony for astronauts and cosmonauts who had died . Guess if atheists want to protest, they can do it all they want. But if they want that Bible removed, they'll have to go and get it. Not that they'll get popular support, capice?

You can read the rest of the article if you blast off over to "Colonel James Irwin: Creationist Astronaut". I did mention that they left a Bible on the moon, yes?
