“I have changed my mind about the testability and logical status of the theory of natural selection; and I am glad to have an opportunity to make a recantation” (Dialectica 32:344-346).
What I was trying to show is that there is so much diversity of opinion on the whole subject that I find it very difficult to accept that there is only 1 right answer.
My own view is that all views of origins should be taught, as in strictly scientific terms (as defined by what I was taught years ago, observable and experiential) no position can be proven i.e I cannot demonstrate in a lab 6 day creation, an evolutionist cannot show life being formed in a test tube.
Only by discussing/showing all options can a reasoned decision be reached
Exchemist - I'm disappointed as I was trying to get a dialogue going not to receive a harangue. Typical evolutionist reaction 'Science has proved' but no evidence provided.
I state you cannot prove something and your answer is to say 'Science has proven it'
Your answers are standard evolutionist condescension with no attempt to show me where I am wrong.
How did life begin and what demonstrable proof do you have. Convince me with facts.
Give me a provable example of evolution (Not Adaptation or Speciation)
Science involves experimenting to figure out how things work; how they operate. Why is evolution, a theory about history, taught as if it is the same as this operational science? You cannot do experiments, or even observe what happened, in the past. Asked if evolution has been observed, Richard Dawkins said, “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed while it’s happening.”
How did life originate? Evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted, “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.”1 Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet”.2 A minimal cell needs several hundred proteins. Even if every atom in the universe were an experiment with all the correct amino acids present for every possible molecular vibration in the supposed evolutionary age of the universe, not even one average-sized functional protein would form. So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?
Gavin, it's another discussion, but actually evolution attacks the basis of faith we have in God. Ironically Richard Dawkins responds very well to your position
As said previously you will not answer any questions but respond with your 'superior understanding'.
I asked a question to get answers which I would then check out to see for myself. That opportunty to explore is taken away because you do not like challenges to your thinking. I have to assume that you cannot demonstrate I am in error so you don't even try
And in Simon's case libel other people and then not give evidence to support it. ( They actually say on their website people will accuse them of lying and dishonesty, but they never offer evidence when challenged. Nice to see them being proven right)
exchemist You have stated your position I agree, but I do not recall any actual evidence being provided to justify it.
What's he point of having a PhD if you cannot teach/explain your subject.
And of course I can leave it to all the PhD's and professors who do not subscribe to your view. Oooops, Sorry Simon, I forgot, since they don't agree with you they are not very good scientists are they. - BUT, they ALWAYS say why they believe as they do and provide evidence to support it. Makes a nice contrast
