Re: Theories - Origin of Life

So let me get this right Evolutionary theory is now only a hypothesis. Is that what you are saying? Well if that is case then I agree with you. Evolution by natural selection was a hypothesis, but a hypothesis which accurately explains the observed data and phenomenon and makes predictions which co...

Re:

scottie, you have consistently stated that you will not believe something because it is "just a hypothesis". I don't think you realize that the first step of the scientific method is to make a hypothesis. So, according to your judgement, if every hypothesis is not worthy of consideration ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

I'm sorry if I mistook you for a denier. We get some here, and I sometimes (OK, often) lose track of who accepts this but rejects that, and why. If you're a Dawkins fan you might well call me a "denier". These people have such labels for those who do not agree absolutely with him, on cert...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

I'm not sure who is denying that evolution occurs. Not me. There could be questioning of some basic particulars, assumptions or tenets, though, in the theory as propounded by Neo Darwinian gene-centrist proponents.

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Does science investigate Creation ? Can you expand on how views of scientific evolutionary theory oppose it ? You have come on this forum because you believe that evolution is false. The onus is not on us to defend evolution. A decent library will do that. The onus is on you to falsify it. That's a...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Scottie, All views of scientific evolutionary theory oppose your view of creation. Different opinions exist because science is not autocratic. Science is a work in progress, and always will be. Does science investigate Creation ? Can you expand on how views of scientific evolutionary theory oppose ...

Re:

Why should be textbook confusing? The answer is simply that it doesn't choose. Jack, it could be considered misleading. In the question, there is what seems to be a premise , given. In pinocytosis, how can cells choose... So the correct answer 1/ would be similar to what you answered, ( but a bit m...

Re: Please help me about pinocytosis

'Right, Jack. And I don't know why I wrote that ( endocytosis) earlier. A bit tired this morning ! It's "Receptor-Mediated Endocytosis". That process. So what the thread author asked is how the cell, in pinocytosis, differentiates the stuff it needs from what it does not. And it seems that...

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

Well, I've done an honest but short search for a definition of "population" that had the kind of stipulations which might be presented against my little presentation, and didn't find such. I'm open to any definitions being presented which would presumably be unhelpful to my argument. Movin...
