It is a mental state called "scientifically agnostic."

Subject: Fwd: [asa] Creation Museum Faith Day at the old ballpark

I note there's an appearance by Bob and Larry of Veggietales. Are they YEC too? Surprising, because I understand Bob presented a paper on "Assyrian Parallels in the Yahwist's Creation Narrative: of Tiamat and Tomatoes" at Princeton Seminary last spring.

But seriously -- I don't doubt that YECism is the dominant view among religious Americans, but I doubt that most religious Americans have given more than a few moments thought to the question -- or to the even bigger question of what Jesus would have thought of multimillionaire athletes teaming up with a rock band, a tomato, and a cucumber for "faith day at the ballpark."

In one of his old movies (can't recall which one), Groucho Marx and his
mirror image do a little dance, and then Groucho says to someone, "who are
you gonna believe--me, or your own eyes?" If anyone doubts that creationism
is the dominant view among religious Americans, all they need to see is this
web site. Who are they gonna doubt--me, or their own eyes?
