Evolution debate persists because it's not science
By Raymond H. Kocot
But did you ever wonder why Darwinism's general theory of evolution, sometimes called macroevolution, has been debated for over 150 years without resolution? The surprising answer is Darwin's macroevolution theory is not a legitimate science. The National Academy of Sciences clearly defined science in its 1998 guidebook for science teachers. The definition begins with [stating that] science is a particular way of knowing about the world, and ends with, "Anything that can be observed or measured is amenable to scientific investigation. Explanations that cannot be based on empirical evidence are not part of science." In other words, a legitimate scientific theory (a hypothesis or idea) must be observable in real time and must be testable, yielding reproducible results. That is the core of the scientific method that has brought man out of the Dark Ages.
Because confirmable observations and generating experimental data are impossible for unique events like life's origin and macroevolution theory, world-famous evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr prompts evolutionists to construct historical narratives to try to explain evolutionary events or processes. In other words, stories are all evolutionists can muster to support macroevolution theory. If macroevolution theory, which must rest on faith in a story and is considered to be scientific, why not the creation story. With that in mind, it is no wonder the molecules-to-man debate has persisted for 150 years...

The result is that evolutionary biology is a valuable skill that will get you a job in any number of privately funded research labs, while being a “cdesign proponentist” means you might be able to make a living writing books for people even more ignorant and silly that yourself.
The dictates of the free market?
Evolution = has value in science.
I.D./Creationism = isn't science, has no value in science.
I am still having visions of a limited number of photons flying around in matter without leaving and repelling any photons that get near matter which results in their destruction leaving no photons left to repell photons which we can see resulting in invisible matter. Interesting. Is that how we get dark matter?
If I said it once, I said it twice: evolution makes a monkey out of you and I.
Missed your English classes also?
We’re back to fossils being created by the devil again.
Fossils were laid down in the Flood; evo-atheism is however from the Devil. To the Devil they come and to the Devil they will wind up.

Gee, it sure is hard to keep up with GGGs!
I was there, but I was napping. I worked three jobs whiles I was in school. I had to sleep sometime.
Dark matter obviously exists only near the edge of the universe.
Obviously pushed there by all the photon repulsions.
==I.D./Creationism = isn’t science, has no value in science.
Seeing how some of the greatest discoveries in science come from young earth creationists, your statement above is laugh-out-loud ignorant.
==Evolution = has value in science.
And the Evos wonder why I am so passionate on this subject!
Folks that act like Nazis are usually trying to stifle their opposition. Free speech should be free speech. Folks shouldn't let Grammar Nazis intimidate them.
So you think the free market should make the determination?
OK. The free market has spoken. Learning biology (physics, geology, etc) will get you a job doing science in a privately funded lab. Learning Creationism will avail you nothing except publishing opportunities.
Scientists do science.
Creationists do press releases.
Which is more valuable in science? Obviously the one scientists use.
No scientist has ever made a great discovery based upon the premise of or by collecting data consistent with a young Earth.
Wow, you must have missed an entire year of science class. At least.
We have been given inalienable rights. These are God given rights. No man, guvmint, or evo/atheist has the right to take away what God has given us.
The socialist, commie, pig *insert bad word here* work to remove God from public view. Evolution and Darwin are tools that they use. If they get us to forget about God, then our God given rights will be taken away. So, even if you don't believe in a God, you should believe in God given rights. If you don't believe in God given rights, you just gave guvmint supreme authority.
And evolution is not a science. There is no proof linking me to the ape. So, evolution in the sense that man came from ape is faith. Faith without hope. I'll take my rights and faith with hope and continue to believe in the things that made our Country great.
Photons repel other photons? I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.
