Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour. Ecclesiastes 10:1
Among The Pagan
A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left. Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool. Ecclesiastes 10:2-3
The National Academy of Science (USA) has recently produced a guidebook for public school teachers, Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science. This book tries to assure readers that neither the NAS nor evolution are anti-Christian.
But a recent survey published in the leading science journal Nature conclusively showed that the National Academy of Science is anti-God to the core. A survey of all 517 NAS members in biological and physical sciences resulted in just over half responding. 72.2% were overtly atheistic, 20.8% agnostic, and only 7.0% believed in a personal God. Belief in God and immortality was lowest among biologists. It is likely that those who didn’t respond were unbelievers as well, so the study probably underestimates the level of anti-God belief in the NAS. The unbelief is far higher than the percentage among scientists in general, or in the whole population.
Commenting on the professed religious neutrality of Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science, the surveyors comment:
“NAS President Bruce Alberts said: ‘There are very many outstanding members of this academy who are very religious people, people who believe in evolution, many of them biologists.’ Our research suggests otherwise.”
Dear fellow posters,
..."It is, therefore, our unequivocal conclusion that creationism, with its account of the origin of life by supernatural means, is not science. It subordinates evidence to statements based on authority and revelation. Its documentation is almost entirely limited to the special publications of its advocates. And its central hypothesis is not subject to change in light of new data or demonstration of error. Moreover, when the evidence for creationism has been subjected to the tests of the scientific method, it has been found invalid...
This quote is from a spokesperson of the National Academy of Science (this quote can be found here).
Can we discuss the question if creationist ideas are subject to change instead of the question in title?
I mean change according to possible new data from data collection in the field?
Would this suit the title, in your opinion? I think it would.
My opinion is, it should be. The Bible only gives a wide frame. For instance, that God made everything and humans were made via special creation. This frame isn't falsifiable, in my opinion. However, the reverse – for instance: God did not create humans in special creation - isn’t falsifiable either, I think (as discussed here).
Edit: ... isn't falsifiable either, on the premise of the above quotation IMO, I would like to add. I think that it contains a generic rejection against any divine intervention testable by science: "creationism, with its account of the origin of life by supernatural means, is not science.". On this premise, there can't be any possible falsification of any claim that excludes a divine intervention.
Everything inside the biblical frame is disputable, I think. For instance: did plants evolve via evolution or did God made them via special invention? Both options lie inside the scope of personal interpretation of the book of Genesis, I think.

I Have No Question That Natural Philosophers
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Genesis 2:1-3

Therefore They Mock
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalms 14:1
And Jeer The LORD Their God The Savior
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalms 1:1-2
And They Would Have Every Man's Child Take The Plunge Of Death With Them
