How wrong could you possibly be?
This is a dissection of Joey Nelson’s article “Is Evolution on its way out? All Major Evolutionary Pillars Have Collapsed”
Evolution simply asserts that the entire cosmos is made up of nothing but matter. It asserts that if you have matter, enough time, and some chance, that this would explain how things came to be.
Evolution makes no such assertion. Evolution is in essense the cumulative change in the frequency of alleles in a population. The theory of evolution makes no such comment about the cosmos.
Darwins “tree of life” indicated that you would get a branching pattern if all things evolved from a common ancestor. Things were not created separately. All that was needed was matter, time, and chance. If this was the case, you would expect thousands of intermediate life forms, yet they have not been found.
Things appear in the fossil record as fully formed. No transitional representations are there. In the Cambrian Explosion, however many millions of years ago you want to estimate this, life just exploded in the fossil record. Animals and organisms were fully formed.
I simply do not know what you wish to achieve by using the term “fully-formed”. Would you call the flightless cormorant fully formed? What about the blind mole rat? Or the blind cave fish? Anyways, follow this link to my Cambrian Explosion article.
Darwin was a man of his time. He only had limited access to cellular information. Some have called the cell “Darwins Black Box” (Behe). Darwin and others knew the information was there, but they didn’t have the know-how nor the technology to evaluate it’s contents. DNA alone is enough to totally destroy evolutionary theory. No random process would ever produce this kind of complexity.
Darwin’s innovation was natural selection, one of the important mechanisms by which evolution is achieved. Of course, no one argues that “random process” could produce such complexity. Natural selection, however, is not a random process, but the opposite. You may follow this link for the evolution of DNA.
I won’t waste your time on the faked Haeckel’s embryo drawings nor the fabricated Peppered Moth (that still appears in some texts books).
You forgot the Piltdown man. Anyways, I won’t waste your time on the the following creationist lies either.
And Darwins yellow finches (that supposedly developed tougher beaks in a drought) were simply micro-evolutionary (small changes within a species which is reasonable; as opposed to macro-evolution which is one species evolving into another species – something totally unfounded) changes. What they don’t tell you is about the beaks on these little finches; the average beak size went back to normal after the drought was over.
I feel (I know) that you have not quite grasped the idea of evolution. Birds can gradually lose their wings as they become no longer needed for survival. There is no law that states that once you’ve gained something you can never lose it. And we have every reason to believe that the beaks will adapt back to the “no-drought” environment. On a different note, there is no fundamental difference between micro- and macro-evolution. Macro-evolution can also be observed in species with shorter generations.
Dr. Karl Popper said that evolution is not a fact nor is it even a theory. It’s not even scientific! In true science, every scientific hypothesis must be able to be proved wrong. Evolution cannot be falsified.
“The most obvious rejoinder to the claim that evolution is unfalsifiable is to point out that all creationists know perfectly well that evolution is falsifiable, as demonstrated by the fact that they keep making claims which, if accurate, would prove the theory of evolution false. For example, creationists often claim that there are no beneficial mutations. Now, if only that was true, then the theory of evolution would be dead. They know this; this is why they so often make this claim.” – SkepticWiki
In fact, good science and the law of thermodynamics has things continually becoming more and more disorganized. How does evolution go the other way? Exactly. It’s not even science. In fact, its more of a world religion, with academia serving as it’s priests.
The second law of thermodynamics only applies to closed systems. To stress on how stupid this claim actually is, I shall quote a creationist: “One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn’t possible: unless there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.”
It’s over. There is no longer a viable alternative. God exists.
What the fack!?!?!
Evolution is on its way out. The only reason it remains more than a vestige, a remnant from the past, is because it is the best hope for naturalistic atheists.
Evolution is one of the most celebrated theories in science, and it is not “on its way out”. It is constantly being confirmed and improved by scientists from all relevant fields.
Without it, the naturalist is left with nothing but the absurd. Abandon this false idealology. Don’t be caught in the rubble. Make way for a newer, yet more accurate, Intelligent Designer movement, that simply verifies what Christian Theists have been asserting all along.
The Intelligent Design movement is not a scientific alternative to evolution. As I have stated in my previous article: “A theory is a logical explanation for observations and facts. Theory is a statement of a fact or facts in relation to each other. An alternative theory should at least equally explain all the facts.” To quote myself: “Intelligent design is a theological notion, a hypothesis at best, and one which has not been tested, and never will be. Intelligent design explains nothing through empirical evidence, and thrives upon gaps in the scientific knowledge (irreducible complexity does not equate to design). It makes no predictions, and no contribution to science of which anybody is aware. So we can hereby propose another “alternative” to the theory of gravity. It’s called intelligent falling. But guess what? It isn’t falsifiable. It isn’t based upon evidence. And it isn’t science.”
Humans are not…a descendent of a tiny cell of primordial protoplasm…an arbitrary product of time and place, chance and natural forces…a grab bag of atomic particles, genetic substance…who exists on a tiny planet in a minute solar system in a corner of a meaningless universe, only slightly different from a banana or an amoeba…coming from nothing and going no where…
Wishing doesn’t make it so.
But humans are…a special creation of a good and powerful Intelligent Designer… who made them in His image…with a unique capacity to think and feel and know things…set above all other life forms…to observe all of the rest of creation…discovering how a world works…all the while, engaging this Designer in relationship… encountering His love… and changing the world for the better… and fulfilling a God-given purpose, minus the suffering eventually…on a new earth…
Wishing still doesn’t make it so.
This is a worldview that will never collapse.
Yes, I can see that.
