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...

“It's your ability to think that I'm worried about.”
Worried?

I question your honesty.

No snoogums, I'm not worried for you. I'm worried about your effect on the genetic viability of the human race. Ever see "idiocracy"?

You mean Natural Selection and Survival Of The Fittest are not real?

No, I don't waste my time with mindless entertainment.

lol... you have *no* idea just how "pwned" you are do you? The Nature crack ruined any *possible* credibility you could *ever* have. Now it's just fun to mock you.

Well, I have yet felt the need to call you snoogums, so, not hardly at all.

As a Creationist, I have never had any credibility with Evofascists to begin with.

My joke about Nature received the exact response I was hoping for.

“Now it's just fun to mock you.” [excerpt]
I'm certainly having fun.

I do not believe that everything found in the animal population means that it is okay for humans.

Nature is pure war, with every man against another. Fear of death is the only way to keep peace; so man is civilized only by the restraint of violence against him for transgressions upon his neighbor.

The sex perverts, like the druggies, can only perpetuate an ever expanding market for their filth by molesting the minds and bodies of the young ones...

Like it or not, our civilization is built on the Laws of Moses... Our rights do not come from an earthly monarch.

I don't care for an ecclesiastical approach to government or education. I am perfectly contented to let people make up their own minds, which is something a lot of these ecclesiastic evolutionists cannot accept.

The argument of some higher purpose is religious fallacy and those who preach it are no different even if they CLAIM atheism. They just want to set themselves up in a temple for others to genuflect before an assumed divinity.

The notion that children need to be indoctrinated and badgered (as a few of the evolutionists are doing here) into thinking a certain way is the insecurity of adults, a universal dissatisfaction with mortality reaching out for an eternal ideal. Whether this is done by atheists or by the religious, it is exactly the same.

The earth did not come from itself, it came from somewhere else. And likewise, everything on the earth came from somewhere else as well.

If evolution is about change over a period of time, then time, as well as life, is by default considered to have an origin.

The singularity of all life as we know it is the DNA molecule. Like the singularity of the "big bang" theory, many of these would be evolutionists make an inadvertent admission life is an immaculate conception. (pun intended)

Science is inherently materialistic

Ah, you are back. You said "*everything* in science is false", with emphasis on "everything". According to you then, evolution is false, among other things.

For someone who pretends they're not gay, you're awfully obsessed with faggotry.

Yawn... I see you still don't understand the difference between nuoma and phenomena.

Far be it from me to deny you the simple(emphasis on simple) pleasures in life.

"...But his (dead and immobile) bone keeps slipping and sliding away. His maladroit incompetence is really hilarious..."

Survival for dogs must involve catching it in his teeth first. Once it's captured, securing it with his paws is less of a survival problem. A bone provides little in the way of nourishment or utility: That a bone might slip away isn't a great loss.

Humans don’t grasp things? BTW, a scotch pot cleaning pad has friction strips, too. Some designer someplace...in some soap lab...noticed an obvious idea.

And...

"...the last I checked humans grip a far greater variety of objects (large and small, coarse and smooth) than do apes..."

The same "friction ridges" that appear on your fingers and palms also appear on your feet.

What were we humans supposed to be grasping with our feet?

I thought with all the penis posts they were making that one of them would explain to me why God designed the one organ both for insertion and reproduction and also for the elimination of waste.

The Adam in original state apparently contained the complete 'curve' as something was separated from him to form woman. Imagine that one if you can, as in original state 'man' was created in the image of God.

>>>No. Harley riders have made me hate them because of their loud pipes and detuning to make them backfire as they come off their throttles.<<<

but why be a hater?
Mine doesn't backfire.
Runs great!
Changing the subject because you have no real answer for how stupid it is for a human being to claim to be related to primates as distant relatives? lol

>>>Ocala is NOT south Florida.<<<

Ok. Thank you for that.
Good geography lesson.
But I don't live in Ocala.
I live in SOUTH Florida.

>>>Rest assured that my mode of transportation will blow away your Harley on both acceleration and top speed.<<<

You can blow all you want, for all I care.
You brought up my Harley as unrelated information in the thread...why...?
You went to my “about” page to try and dig up something scandalous and my Harley was the best you could do?
So you then post a “compensator” comment that you think yours is bigger and faster?
What exactly IS your point?

I don't have to prove anything to anyone.
You brought up the topic of my Harley, not me.
Which makes folks wonder why you'd feel so insecure that you need to try and...compare.
You have issues.
Your last statement shows your inner need to validate what...your size?...stature?..social value?...worldly importance?...what?

All because I laugh at people who openly are willing to embarrass themselves by claiming to have originated from, and related to, lower life forms?

Well, its YOUR theory!
It's YOUR belief!
You own it by your OWN choice!
If it is so darn embarrassing for you, maybe that ought to give you folks some kinda clue!
hello!

...still laughing.
...moving along

Coming from someone who runs around calling everyone *snoogums*, that’s ironic.....
