* What are the embedded and developing theories in creationism? (Embedded theories are fully developed, generally accepted theories.)
* What are the basic premises--the postulates--of each theory?
* What are some examples of lines of reasoning used for support of postulates, for explanation of facts, and for prediction in each theory?
* What are the range of applicability and the limitations--the boundaries--of each theory? Pursuit of answers to these questions will soon convince most rational people that Arthur Caplan's outright rejection of creationism as science (The Scientist, May 13, 1991, page 14; Feb. 18, 1991, page 11) is well founded.
