Creationist Rebuttal

From http://www.drdino.com/articles.php?spec=55

"Both Creation and Evolutionism start with philosophical assumptions. Evolutionists (traditionally) start with the assumption that God has no intervention in this world. This isn't a testable conclusion; they didn't come to this conclusion by science. Creationists have the philosophical position that God has partaken in the history of this earth, and that He has revealed the True history of the earth through His infallible Word."
This is extremely incorrect and a great example of how Creationist advocates dress up their theology in quasi-logical statements. Scientists do not start with an assumption 'the God has no intervention in this world.' Scientists start with evidence. Using this logic, you could also say that scientists start with the assumption that there is no Flying Spaghetti Monster. That doesn't mean that we should take the idea seriously.
