Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Wbla3335 & canalon… I referred to you as "third people" throughout the post (sorry)… It’s not the sign of disrespect (I was just trying to squeeze everything in one post). Sorry again!

Evolution doesn’t really seem to falsify creation, it falsifies the meaning you put into the word creation (the way you believe it should’ve happened if it were true). I don't think this makes sense. The only thing that you can falsify is a hypothesis . I’ll allow you to refute your own statement. ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

…this reply took ~12 hours to make.. As a result, I’ll make this my last response. Looks like I missed the train by … a month or so, so it’s perfectly fine if you don’t reply to this one (there is nothing serious enough to reply to anyway). Time-wise your reply to Scottie was a heroic effort by the...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Therefore, allocating the role of the designer to “the natural world” also seems to be quite subjective to me, and I don’t see how one can rationally quantify it (likely or unlikely…) Everything that goes on in heads is subjective, but some of it can be based on evidence. In the absence of evidence...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

...findings of science often differ from the interpretations of those findings, particularly unqualified and prejudged interpretations. “That's no proof one does not exist, just unlikely to ….. have a need to believe in something other than the natural world ” (c) all this stuff is also the interpr...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Gods are fictional characters. I know… . I’ve read it somewhere already... Gods are fictional characters… Religion is the opium of the people….. Yeh, I believe this stuff was in my soviet 4th grade “History of the Ancient World” text book. But I have kinda already deviated from a black’n’white perc...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

That's no proof one does not exist, just unlikely to.. Likely / unlikely…. You are quantifying something that is, as it stands, unquantifiable, cause we lack knowledge, enough evidence and even capacity to gather enough evidence. At the same time you offer little to debunk Scottie’s statements, cau...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Gavin , here is your statement: “The only people who do not support evolution are those who are ignorant of the evidence…” And here is definition of evolution: “Evolution is any change across successive generations in the heritable characteristics of biological populations.” (Wiki) Now, I may have ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Scottie , I view your arguments and the data you present as very convincing, logical and informative. Also, as I already said, I applaud the effort you applied to learn the subject not immediately relevant to your specialization, and the bravery with which you battle your powerful opposition. Unfor...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Let me briefly summarize my subjective perception of the situation here. Unless I am biased, the biggest counter argument to Scottie’s claims about improbability of the randomness’ role in the processes described over the last 32 pages is absence of any evidence that supports existence of the supern...

Re: Camouflage in nature

JackBean.... Say I have 10 hypothetical bugs. 9 of them are poisonous and 1 of them is not poisonous but mimics a bunch of characteristics (colors, patterns, shape, behavior, etc…) of 1 of the 9 poisonous bugs (a wasp, for example) for its protection. How the development of these features can be mod...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

awkko808 , “dust” was a figure of speech. I’ve suggested that the earthly sequence of events ( nothing->bacteria->Cambrian diversity ), viewed through the glasses of Biology, can psychologically trick one into believe that simplicity first / complexity second is some form of the universal truth.
