I am only trying to say (and point out examples) that there are issues with the evolutionary model which can justifiably cause me, or any one else, to have reservations with evolution. Also to show there are scientists fully competent in fields relevant to the discussion who are opposed to evolution.
Because a majority may take a position it does not guarantee that position is right.
My position re theology is that the science I have seen does not convince me about evolution, so I have no reason to abandon my theological beliefs.
TO RETURN TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION 'How can the layman decide', I think it does depend to a large extent on your personal understanding of God, his power and His authority. BUT, I think that would be another thread.
Got some good discussion going, thank you.
To describe scientists who disagree with you as second rate is, in my opinion, offensive.
As in all walks, and all persuasions, there will be 2nd raters. Even evolutionists.
But to so describe your peers and in some cases probably your betters; people who have worked on space missions; people employed by secular business in research capacities which are results driven - so those companies can develop products to enhance their business and also benefit people; people employed by British universities teaching students; in a blanket condemnation probably says more about you than them.
Also you are saying their employers are not very bright to employ them, as they obviously can't be very good at their jobs.
