[[However, the validity of a given conclusion should correspond to reality, not to that which is most popular.]]
Sadly, the reality of scientific education today relies on what’s ‘popular’ amoung academics, NOT on reality. Those who bring hte scientific FACTS to the table are systematically ostracized and excluded because by golly the dogmatic religion of Darwin Must persist no matter what the FACTS state. Is there ANY biological evidence linking sea creatures with air breathing land dwellers? Nope- not a shred, and infact hte scientific FACTS argue there is no link, but by golly, the FACTS seem not to matter, and instead it’s taught that animals did arise from the sea, and don’t you or I argue otherwise or else!
Sceintific fact? Or Religious Dogmatic beleif that creatures didn’t need an intelligent designer? You decide.
Good to run into you again, CottShop. And as usual, excellent points!
