Natural selection and change, yes; Evolution, no
1.This episode talks much about change and natural selection, but fails to give any evidence that these produce evolution, other than for the various professors who assert that it does.
2.Darwins theory promoted the idea that man is a beast with animal lusts and no morality, and this has been gleefully accepted by much of modern society.
3.We might well ask: Why would any sane professor adopt and propagate a theory for which there is such paltry scientific evidence, which is an expression of hatred of God, and which demotes man to the level of a beast? For the answer, we quote the words of another 19th century atheist philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, who pronounced God to be dead, and gave as his reason, We deny God; in denying God, we deny accountability. ...

Debate on church doctrine and or threads on specific religious matters may be best posted in the religion forum, but the defense of religious freedom, especially against those who wish to deprive us of same belongs front and center on FR....They banned God and prayer and creationism from public schools and public places, but Ill be damned if theyre gonna ban Him or it from FR!
That hit's the article, itself.
You do know it’s ludicrous to call this nonsense “defending your religious freedom”......right?

But Darwin himself made no such assertion.

Nietzsche didn’t “pronounce” God dead. Instead, he made the (correct) case that the educated classes of his day had rejected religious explanations and sought refuge in scientism...thus, the madman said, “God is dead, and we have killed Him.”
The natives are restless tonight.
Evolution is not always one way.
That just isn't going to work on an educated audience. You may as well try and convince us that the world is flat.
Evolution is a fact, and is still happening all around you today.
Darwin and the Descent of Morality
On what basis do you conclude that macroevolution is an historical fact?
One evolutionist says stripes on a zebra are an example of natural selection for living in the tall grasses but how then does one explain another zebra, the quagga, which is only striped on the front part of its body. Or other prey animals that live in the same location that have no stripes.
Did natural selection quit half way through the process on the quagga?
How to explain the difference in lions and cheetahs that prey upon the same animals in the same areas yet are very different in their habits and appearance.
Both survive so which traits are being selected for survival?
Natural selection sounds like a far too random a process to produce anything more than minor differences.
“You cannot take the bible as a literal document. It was written by men, translated by men, and is a reflection of their beliefs and fears in that ancient time.
That just isn’t going to work on an educated audience. You may as well try and convince us that the world is flat.
Evolution is a fact, and is still happening all around you today. “
Funny learned men were telling us the earth was flat long after the Bible was written. Isaiah 40:22 told us the earth was a sphere.
Just what have you seen evolve ? Evolution goes against the second law of thermodynamics . We are not gaining DNA we are losing it.
I’ll take the Bibles word a truth over that of some scientist with alter motive of gaining some funding.
So far none of those learned men who have set out to prove the Bible was false have succeeded in doing so.
My dad was a PHD who had trouble tying his shoelaces.
Learned men can be lacking in knowledge in many things.
One can't help but notice, in many cases this is actually a correct statement.
You should not be asking for proof when your entire belief system is based entirely on faith, which is the lack of proof coupled with the refusal to consider any opposing viewpoint. I could show you any amount of proof, but with a closed mind, nothing could convince you.
Darwin was a Naturalist and a Christian. He had both faith in God and open mind, as they are not mutually exclusive.
“I’m an educated man.”
Any particular field or just generally so?

Ok, so you can’t explain why you think macroevolution is an historical fact. Now that we know your belief in macroevolution is based on blind faith and not empirical science, why do you assume that creation scientists are just as blind as the evolutionists?
