The Universe Has a Center
Our solar system appears to be near the center of the universe . Galaxies look the same , and are moving away from us in the same way, in all directions . The cosmic microwave background radiation comes to us very uniformly from all directions . These and other data  strongly indicate [do they?] we are located at a very special [subjective] location by design [non-sequitur].
Instead of accepting the obvious [which? to whom? based on what evidence?], recent models of physical cosmology assume [look up the word “assume”] the earth is not special [subjective] and that everywhere in the universe the exact same observation of receding objects would be seen [link to at least one impartial source]. Instead of a universe with an age measured in thousands of years, this assumption [look up the word “assumption”] leads to billions of years.
In contrast, creation cosmologies explain the data better [subjective] by starting from biblically-based axioms [look up the word “axiom”]: the cosmos has a unique  center and a boundary for its matter , beyond which there is at least some empty space ; and on a cosmic scale of distances [link], the earth is near [vague] the center.

I’m mostly posting this because I ended up here this morning and it made me want to cry. For a start, it was tagged as #research, which is the one thing so desperately lacking. Wouldn’t it be interesting to change everything we know about the universe in three un-sourced paragraphs?
I also like that all their “sciencey” images are stock photos.

I know there’s no point arguing with people who take Genesis to be a literal historical account. It’s like talking to a doll that repeats one of the same five phrases every time you pull the string. But I find their existence depressing nonetheless.
ICR (or Insane Clown Research as they shall henceforth be referred to) and their pals in the YEC/ID lobby are exceptionally well funded; vastly better funded, indeed, than the average academic institution. Why therefore, has no creation “scientist” yet managed to put any independently verifiable dent in cosmology, abiogenesis or evolution? Is it an atheistic conspiracy to hide the truth? So what. Outspend us on the marketing. Get the word out.
These groups have the money, they have the time, they have the faith. The individual or institution which categorically disproves any of these topics will be internationally famous for the rest of human history. The scientific community will be forced to hang their collective head in shame at such an embarrassing mistake. It would be a triumph of literally biblical proportions.
But it hasn’t happened yet. Will it happen in the future? Perhaps. But in the meantime, the corroborating scientific, fact-based evidence continues to pour in.
Biblical. Accurate. Certain.
