We often define ourselves by our actions. In a way, we are what we do, but perhaps more than we realize, we are what we think.

— Gary R. Kirby and Jeffery R. Goodpaster, Thinking (Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, 1995), xiii.

    In Critical Thinking they say “No scientist ever has, nor ever will see a star form because the Creator created all of His stars in the fourth day of the creation week (Genesis 1:14–19)”(Kirby and Goodpaster 2007, p26)
    Genesis does not say God created all of his stars that day it says “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” The word all doesn’t appear until Genesis 1:26
    Why do so many “Thinkers” think Christians don’t think?

    You might wish to re-read the section. We don’t say that–we are quoting others as a likely case of denial.
