Discussion of everything related to the Theory of Evolution.
Those who oppose evolution normally do so for religious reasons.
I have a challenge for those who oppose evolution. Find me a single Ph.D. qualified biologist who opposes evolution, who also happens to be an atheist. You won't. There are Ph. D. qualified biologists who oppose evolution who are also fundamentalists in one religion or another. None who lack religion will oppose evolution.
This clearly shows that opposition to evolution comes from religious committment, rather than science. Most religions preach the need for honesty. Leading people to believe something that is not true is a sin. So here is a second challenge to those who oppose evolution. Be honest. Do not tell lies. Tell us the source of your opposition. Come clean with the fact that your opposition to evolution comes from your religious beliefs, rather than from science.
The link posted above made my head hurt while trying to skim through it. Youch.
There are two kinds of people who generally disagree with evolution whether it be Macro- or Micro-. Uninformed people and Bible/Koran/etc. literalists.
Within the science community, there is NO debate that evolution has occurred, and is still occurring. Without evolution, you don't have Biology at all, it would be reduced to Nature study.
Creationists actually embrace a form of evolution that has been referred to as 'super' evolution. It's pretty ironic. They need this 'super' evolution to explain the diversification of the various 'kinds' after Noah's mythological flood. With all the species on the planet today, it's pretty hard to keep Noah's ark from sinking without 'super' evolution. cdk007 has a vid about it:
Any site claiming to disprove evolution using this kind of argument clearly demonstrates that:
- They have no clue what they are talking about.
- They are ready to make fools of themselves to disprove something they do not understand
- They cannot be taken seriously.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without
any proof. (Ashley Montague)
