Science Vs. Fiction Fantasy

Since its debut, creationist groups have made a lot of noise about Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey."  While others have shunned the reboot of Carl Sagan's 1980 PBS series altogether, other creationists are now saying they now want equal airtime.

Danny Faulkner of Answers In Genesis voiced his complaints about "Cosmos" and how the 13-episode series has described scientific theories, such as evolution, but has failed to shed light on dissenting creationist viewpoints.
 "I was struck in the first episode where [Tyson] talked about science and how, you know, all ideas are discussed, you know, everything is up for discussion –- it's all on the table -- and I thought to myself, 'No, consideration of special creation is definitely not open for discussion, it would seem."
Earth to Danny:   creationism isn't science!  You don't get equal time to revolution- you can go peddle your fairy tales in religion class.
