Re: Evolution not supported by the facts

http://www.chick.com/bc/1987/evolution.asp Read this, you evolutionists (hopefully) will be surprised. The link you provide contains nothing but garden-variety objections to evolution based on gross misconceptions, ignorance and dishonesty. A user above even provided a link to talkorigins where the...

Re: God vs Evolution

I believe God created the universe and everything in it. And that evolution is an incorrect 'THEORY' made by the human race to neglect God. I want your argument about why you believe that human existence is a freak accident or if we were created for a purpose. Whether or not human existence is a fr...

Re:

The theory of evolution, as we currently understand it, is the development of the primary replicator in the primordial soup in a very short period of time since the initial cooling of the ocean (less than 4 billion years ago) until which date back to the most ancient remains of bacteria (about 3, 5...

Re: Evolution or De-evolution?

I would like to start by clarifying the terminology for this post so that everyone is on the same page… Facts: 1. Molecular evolution – refers to molecular changes over time (ex. Genetic mutations, lateral gene transfer, etc.) that have been proven to be able to affect phenotype changes (ex. Diseas...

Re:

Don't you just love it when someone is trying to debunk evolution, yet they obviously don't know anything about it? And when you show them how they are wrong, they continue to argue.... I have wondered why it is that they think that they are qualified to make this criticism? Do they tell a physicia...

Re: Evolutionary mechanisms

Since natural selection tends to reduce variation does it also hold true at the ecological level in fauna flora interactions? Using cat's example of slow rabbits getting eaten and reducing variation of this species, will this help increase variation of certain plants since there will no longer be ce...

Cat, I meant to say I read *half the article. I have now read the entire article and, if you could be so kind, can you help me understand a term? What does "allotransfer" mean? I can't find a def for it. In the article it's used in this senence: " Susceptible individuals may benefit fr...

Cat, Again, thanks for pointing it out and explaining it to me. NS does tend to reduce variation (extinction for instance) and what I should have said is that it's still no argument against evolution. Yes, peer review is not infallible (nature.com/nature/peerreview/debate) and they do at times conta...

Cat, I've read about have of it and you're correct. However, jinx25 has written before on this forum that evolution decreases diversity. I should have addressed it at appropriate thread. In any case, this user doesn't believe in evolution and I also wanted to see how he would counter the content of ...

jinx25, You wrote "People dont seem to realise the complete absence of a genetic mechanism for adding NEW organ systems, biochemical pathways etc etc." Putting aside the fact that your wording here and in other threads demonstrates scientific illiteracy, Google and then read this "GEN...
