If biblical literalisn is true, and genuine science is true, then genuine science must be compatible with biblical literalism. Hence the Creationist alternative Universe, in which plate tectonics were driven by Noah's flood, radioactive decay rates vary to fit biblical dating, lions were originally vegetarians, and every kind of fossil is a separate creation. But these are scientific facts, so there is no conflict with science; only with "science falsely so called", which we were warned against in 1 Timothy 6:20. And millions of people in the world's most scientifically advanced nation believe this. And believe that if you don't believe it, you will go to Hell and serve you right. And if you want the Republican Presidential nomination, you better believe it. Meantime the planet warms.
