Obviously not, says my Friday Post column. When Mendel's work came to light everybody threw Darwin aside for 20 years, bringing him back into the fold of biology only reluctantly. But when creationists more or less specifically say "If they found X it would refute creationism", and X is found, no one's mind is ever changed (instead they say "Great, but show us Y"). This is the operating difference between scientific theories and metaphysical ideas. You don't even really need to read the column; that's pretty much it! But do.
