For evolution time and change are critical. If there is insufficient time for evolution, it fails. If time and change don’t explain everything, evolution fails. The backbone of evolution is its dating methods. Time is the key to evolution.
But time is not a critical variable for creationists. Creation is basically the same as it was in the beginning. Variations and catastrophes are secondary to the constancy of creation. After scientists understand what doesn’t change, then they can fit change into that framework.
Creationists should not follow evolutionists in thinking that time and chronology are the key to science. They are not. Invariance is the key to science and it always has been. That’s why real science studies physical laws and their consequences.
