I found this over at Robert Cargill's blog site: "And I applaud Harvard Divinity School’s Dr. Karen King. Dr. King released this fragment the way it should be released in this new digital era of immediate feedback: first to a group of scholars for review, and then to a professional conference of her peers for … Continue reading Scholars Are Full Of Themselves

I say creationists instead of Christians because many who claim to follow Christ do not believe nor accept creation as written in Genesis 1. Those people and the evolutionary crowd tend to accuse creationists of being ignorant and anti-science. Both charges are false and the answer to the title question is 'no'.
