Retroactive confession

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Jump to: navigation, search

A retroactive confession is a term used to describe the admission of a problem only after a solution is found. The term itself (as well as its application to evolution) is believed to have originated with the Discovery Institute.

Frequently, creationists raise chronic objections to evolution. These objections can range from absence of evidence to obstacles in suggested modes of evolution. Evolutionists meet these objections by ignoring them, waving them away or dismissing them as simplistic and irrelevant.

After believing they have found solutions to such enigmas, puzzles or challenges, evolutionists will heartily confess that the now-solved puzzle was indeed challenging to evolution.
