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...

Hardcore evolutionists are liberals in almost all cases. Thus most of them hate true conservatism and follow the left as it 'progresses' toward moral anarchy.

They all oppose the fact that we are "Endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights."

They side with the far left and take issue with our pledge of "One nation under God".

They are almost always in lock step with the far left nineteen sixties liberals who hated America and pushed their far left social agenda. They both take shots at social conservatives and America's cultural and religious history while showing ignorance of our legal history.

The Hardcore Free Republic Evolutionists are mostly social liberals who pretend to be something else, never admitting what they really are, blind liberals who think social conservatives are the enemy of the state.

Yes Sigmund, you know me. Have you considered a second career in psychoanalysis?

“Translation: crazy Crevos find something they don’t want to believe, come up with cockamamie theories that only other dumb crevos believe. Thereby sentencing anyone educated by or around crevos to further ignorance and making crevo areas even greater economic backwaters.”
WoW!

You're right!

People who believe in Creation and Evolution are a little crazy!

Thats why I'm a Creationist.

“It continues to be debated because people who do not grock science continue to offer non-scientific arguments. ”
Evolutionists in particular.

Hahahaha... how many creationist articles get published in Nature(which only accepts the "best" scientific arguments)? How many evolutionary articles? I'll give you a hint, look in this month's issue.

Well, I wouldn't expect that a publication which is devoted to promoting Darwinian Evolution would ever contain an article that did not agree with the underlying purpose of the publication.

What the ...!

I didn't know you were a Creationist!

In hindsight, it makes sense though.

“Where do Evos disagree with physics?” [excerpt]
Well, I saw one Evo try to reduce F=ma to F=m

At least I think thats what he was saying. (Major fruitiness)

Oh, you remember Mr 2.1° don't you?

You win the award for dumbest crevo ever. DNA? Neutrons? Nuclear fission. I wonder where their discovery was published?

Except I'm not a Crevo.

I'm a Creationist.

The term Crevo is an amalgamation of the words Creation and Evolution.

If I accepted both Creation and Evolution, then the term Crevo would be an accurate description.

However, I eschew His Reverend Apostacy Chucky Darwood's theology.

Okay. You're the dumbest creationist ever. Is that better?

Well, I dunno about that.

As far as I know, my ability to speak is in no way limited or handicapped.

It's your ability to think that I'm worried about.
