Can Creationists Use Logic?

Some misotheists begin with the assumptions that they are somehow more intelligent than theists because they pretend that there is no God, and that theists are incapable of rational thought. Especially biblical creationists. Wrong.

They seem willingly ignorant that many of the greatest scientists of all time have been biblical creationists, and they exist today as well. Rejecting evolution on both theological and scientific grounds does not mean that someone is stupid or uninformed; such assertions are fallacious.

It's ironic when atheopaths use logical fallacies to tell us they're smarter than we are!
Sometimes, it becomes difficult to distinguish between the fallacies, especially when they are blended together. Is the above only prejudicial conjecture, or does it include the genetic fallacy? At any rate, we can see that it is an attempt to berate creationists from someone who has unwarranted presuppositions. This begins to show that Christians and creationists do use critical thinking (and regular readers know that I frequently lament the fact that too many people do not think critically). We reason about science, we reason from the Scriptures to understand them properly, we reason in our daily lives. Logic itself comes from God and is not the product of man-made laws — the laws are only descriptions.

There are Christians who have believed the false definitions of "faith" that unbelievers have presented and done "just believe" approaches. This is not what God has given us. As Ian Juby says, "God gave you an intelligently designed brain, and expects you to use it".

People have asked me about logic, and the following article is worth reading a couple of times. At least. It is not a piece of fluff, but how many things worth learning are simple? This will be very much worth your time and a bit of effort. Use it as a springboard to get into additional learning of logic. Let me help with the Logic Lessons (about logical fallacies) as well.
Logic and reason are far from being incompatible with biblical Christianity. Rather, they are essential. Without them it is impossible to deduce anything from the true propositions of the 66 books of Scripture, the Christian’s final authority. This applies to Creation, one of the foundational doctrines of Christianity. Examples of valid and fallacious reasoning are discussed, with emphasis on showing how logical reasoning can support the truth of biblical creation, and demonstrate the fallacies in many evolutionists’ arguments.

Logic is the science of the relations between propositions. Logic can tell us what can be inferred from a given proposition, but it cannot tell us whether the given proposition is true in the first place. All philosophical systems rely on logical deductions from starting assumptions—axioms—which, by definition, cannot be proven from prior assumption. For our axioms, it is rational to accept the propositions revealed by the infallible God in the 66 books of the Bible.
I hope you will read the rest of "Loving God with all your mind: logic and creation".
