Where are all the half-evolved dinosaurs?
Pravda ^ | 05.06.2006 | Babu G. Ranganathan

Note; Had to remove words to get under 300. See article.

People are taught that the fossil record furnishes proof of evolution. But, where are there fossils of half-evolved dinosaurs or other creatures?

The fossil record contains fossils of only complete and fully-formed species. There are no fossils of partially-evolved species.

Evolutionists claim that the genetic and biological similarities between species is evidence of common ancestry. However, that is only one interpretation of the evidence. Neither position can be scientifically proved.

Although Darwin was partially correct by showing that natural selection occurs in nature, the problem is that natural selection itself is not a creative force. The evidence from genetics supports only the possibility for horizontal evolution (i.e. varieties of dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc.) but not vertical evolution (i.e. from fish to human). Unless Nature has the ability to perform genetic engineering vertical evolution will not be possible.

Science cannot prove we're here by creation, but neither can science prove we're here by chance or macro-evolution. No one has observed either. They are both accepted on faith. The issue is which faith, Darwinian macro-evolutionary theory or creation, has better scientific support.

What we believe about life's origins does influence our philosophy and value of life as well as our view of ourselves and others. This is no small issue!

Just because the laws of science can explain how life and the universe operate and work doesn't mean there is no Maker.

Natural laws are adequate to explain the order in life, but undirected natural laws can never fully explain the origin of such order.

The law of entropy in science shows that the universe does not have the ability to have sustained itself from all eternity. In other words, the universe cannot be eternal and requires a beginning.

Natural laws are adequate to explain how the order in life, the universe, but mere undirected natural laws can never fully explain the origin of such order.

What we believe about life's origins does influence our philosophy and value of life as well as our view of ourselves and others. This is no small issue! Note; I took a few words out of the excpert to get it under 300 words.

Science cannot prove we're here by creation, but neither can science prove we're here by chance or macro-evolution. No one has observed either. They are both accepted on faith. The issue is which faith?

So you people are now reduced to Pravda articles to "argue" your points.

We'll know you've finally given it up when the Weekly World News articles show up...we can hardly wait.

Ok I'll bite.

Well I would say that procreating is a pretty good creative force. Life's not much fun when the dudes or chicks wont do it with you.

I don't know. Occupying faculty offices in biology departments, perhaps?

There's no evidence that Bat Boy evolved. Game, Set, Match.

Odd that this is from Pravda. That stated, there are more accurate sources with anti-Macroevolutionary articles. In Pravda's article on a theoretical hyperdrive, they stated that they Alpha Centauri system was 11 lightyears away instead of the Tau Ceti system.

"Where are all the half-evolved dinosaurs?"

Some of them are at the NYT, and some at the LA Times.

There are no half-evolved dinosaurs becasue they became extinct.
