First because it speaks to the issues not personalities.

The issue is the discussion of a scientific theory.

There is a demonstrated tendency for some to discard discussion of a scientific theory in favor of accusing the proponent of said theory of being an atheist - or making the argument about atheism.

You attempting to make the argument about my credentials, or my personal religious beliefs is an ad hominem attack.

Me pointing out that you and your cohort tend to do so is an accurate observation - as demonstrated - it is not an attack against your personality or personal beliefs.

That would not be a valid argument, of course. However, it is true and a very valid argument to point out that the ONLY basis for the validity of a hypothesis of evolution is to bend over backwards to deny the existence of God. Evolution is a complete corruption of the mind and logic in pursuit of a universe not created by God. So it is not (or should not be) an attack on the validity of the speaker as a fallacious attempt to refute the point spoken. But it is true that the only thread on which evolution hangs is a desperate attempt to explain the universe without God.

Then, also, enter the HALF-believing Christian who cannot quite bring himself to believe that the God He believes in is big enough or powerful enough to create the universe and its contents. He would rather believe that NOTHING created the universe or THAT GOD NEEDED LOTS OF HELP ALONG THE WAY.

SO while believing in God, many have a concept of a small God in a big universe. That means that GOD NEEDED HELP, lots of it, to make the universe as we know it.

So we see that evolution makes sense NOT on scientific grounds but ONLY as a "cure" for religion, to help people escape the obvious reality that there is a God.

However, those of us who know evolution better than most evolutionists need to speak out and expose its falsehood, for those who may only vaguely understand what is wrong with it, why it does not hang together on scientific grounds.

Balderdash!

Evolutionisn’t scientific in any way; it’s a political tool, and all of the purported ‘evidence’ to support it is fabricated and/or deliberately misinterpreted.

Same kind of ‘science’ as global warming, same kind of morals too.
