Skip to comments.The Five Failed Predictions of Creationism
Posted on 04/01/2003 8:12:41 AM PST by PatrickHenry
This vanity thread was inspired by a provocative question that Junior directed to a creationist: "Biblical prophesies notwithstanding, what biological predictions does creationism make?" The creationist didn't respond, but I did, as follows:
I can think of a few creationist predictions. Because -- according to creationism -- all species were specially created at virtually the same time, and did not gradually evolve from earlier forms:
1. There should be no transitional species.I shall call these The Five Failed Predictions of Creationism.
2. There are most certainly no pre-human species.
3. There should be no evidence, whether in fossils or DNA, showing the chronological evolution of life.
4. There must surely be at least one species, and probably several, having no genetic similarities with any other life on earth.
5. The fossil record must show all kinds of species (such as dinosaurs and humans) living together at the same time.
In fairness to the creationists, although the first three have already been disproved (for example: #1 -- Transitional Vertebrate Fossils FAQ, #2 -- Human Ancestors, more #2 -- Comparison of all skulls, #3 -- Tree of Life Project ), the last two (#4 and #5) can't yet be considered to be totally failed predictions. All we can do is point out that the predicted evidence has not yet been discovered. Given the lack of actual research being conducted by creationists, it is unlikely to be discovered.
I did not invent evolution. In fact, I am the one who constantly has to post what the theory of evolution is because evolutionists are too dishonest to state plainly what their theory is. One has to wonder how the theory of evolution can be a scientific fact when no one is willing to state exactly what the theory is. Evolutionists like to do the gobledygook dance and claim a different thing in each different situation. It is not science, it is an ideology and your constant insults more than prove it. If it were science and you were a scientist you would be able to back up your theory with facts instead of insults.
Indeed, the Bible is a unit, it is not a smorgasboard from which one can take what one likes. Of course that is part of the reason why evolutionists cannot be Christians - they are very self-centered and will take only what pleases them and their theory, never mind the facts.
You can recognize his posts by the "English-is-my-second-language" sentence structure and grammar, the flagrant misrepresentations of reality, and the characteristic blue font....
Hmm, Genesis is a fairy tale and Christ's teachings are fairly tales according to you.
... and you dare claim yourself as an example of Christianity and evolution being able to coexist? You must think everyone is an idiot. Hate to tell you, they are not. They are much smarter than the guy who thinks everyone else is an idiot.
And even then, just a few species which he very selectively picked. He knew of the platypus, but did not discuss it because it would completely disprove his theory. He knew of the bat's sonar, but he did not talk about that. He knew of butterflies and frogs going through a second incarnation, but he did not discuss that either as it was contrary from his theory.
As I said before, I will say it again, you hold Darwin above Christ.
No one has seen a single species transform itself. You cannot give any facts supporting evolution and the transformation of species into more complex creatures. All you can give as proof for your atheistic theory are the usual:
Then if God created life, how come you evolutionists strongly deny that He created man and are constantly trying to prove (unsuccessfully I might add) that He did not create man? Answer that one, but of course you will not, you will just hurl more insults as usual.
So what is it like to spend your life insulting people Patrick?
So what is it like to spend your life insulting people Patrick?Hee hee. That from someone who, in the now-pulled but not forgotten ACLU thread, posted the infamous #1360, addressed to me, on 19 Sep 2002:

[Note to moderator: I'm not insulting anyone. This is a copy of someone's insult to me.]
You execrable piece of lying garbage. Since you got back at around post#300 you have turned this thread from a civilized discussion into an avalanche of slime. You already got the post pulled away from the front to where no one will see it which was YOUR purpose.
It was your purpose because you and your friends are a bunch of lame know-nothing liars who can only insult and try to drive away people from the threads so you will have no opposition. Like the real Taliban, the evo Taliban are a bunch of stupid thugs who try to silence all opponents and destroy all those who dare say that the emperor of evolution has no clothes.
You keep thinking that by your despicable tactics you can silence the truth, but all you are doing is wasting your time. As the Communists, who had far more control than your little bunch of thugs showed, no matter how hard you try, you cannot silence the truth. The truth is so powerful that a very small band of men, eleven in fact, armed with nothing but the words of Christ conquered the unconquerable Roman Empire and destroyed atheism and paganism in the civilized world. You will not succeed because our Leader is infinitely more powerful than the maggot infested carcass of your hero - the atheist, racist, inciter of mass murder Charles Darwin.
Not to mention the "Thorazine-free Zone" in which certain posters appear to be operating.
