Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

In short, science is ever changing and absolute statements have NO PLACE in science, especially in the fields that are NOT direct observable. Just because physics gets such amazing results, doesn't mean ALL sciences are "created" equal. Absolutely correct. Some sciences are more equal tha...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

"Late last year..." In spite of being told how incompetent I am, I think I'm going to give a lesson on how to respond to new information one comes across in the popular press. If you want to attempt to use it scientifically, there are important ways of establishing its, and your, credibili...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Is it unduly prejudiced of me to feel that an article beginning "Amoebas are puny, stupid blobs" may not be the last word in scientific precision? I don't know what criteria were applied to achieve these designations, but amoeba seem to get along pretty well, and have done so for millions ...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

I was hoping you could support your opinion of the evolutionary tree of life around Miacidae with fossil evidence. Are you sure? If so, I'll be happy to do so in profusion. But you don't really, do you? What you want is to see the evidence, and announce that because it isn't conclusive proof, it is...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Well, that's fine. If "too imprecise to allow exact chronological comparisons" means "vague accumulation of confusion" then we are speaking different languages. "Respectfully, this discussion we are having is not about what is credible in your mind". ....." I sugge...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Pig hunters continue to breed dogs as big as they can. No they don't. They breed them as big as they require. Elephant sized dogs would be no use at all. There are many breeds of dog bigger than 'pig hunting' dogs. I suggested it to expose the ridiculous notion of a single celled organism having th...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

There is actually OBSERVED and SUBSTANTIATED evidence that matter can be created instantly. However there is no substantiated and observed evidence that any organism has the genetic capacity to evolve from microbe to elephant. The observed and substantiated evidence that matter can be be created, f...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Another interesting collection. Firstly, I suppose, I have to say thank you to Byblos, who targets my belief in the Resurrection' as a major theme, and queries the refusal, perhaps the inability, of Stu, Rick and Philip to accept that there is any other way of 'believing in the Resurrection' than th...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

The obvious question I would have for you, is do you believe in the virgin birth of Christ, and his resurrection, which are both New Testament miracles? Yes, I thought you might. The answer, as I wriggled away with just now, is that I don't know. In several circumstances we have an undisputed befor...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Yes, fair enough, Kurieou. I guess the trouble with any of these quasi-philosophical labels, even YEC and Day-Age, is that there is no hierarchy up which one can climb to find a definitive definition, so they all disagree with each other to some extent. If we have to label people, it might be better...

Re: "Tree" or "Web" of Life? A Tale of Red Wolf "Species"

I am indeed related to monkeys, as are you, and proud to be so. However, although I am also related to whales and hippos, I cannot boast that any of my ancestors was either. Whales, hippos, you and I can claim that we all share a great-great-great... momma in a rather small ratty looking lady living...

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

I don't recognise the distinction between mediate and immediate. Not a single metabolic process nor cell division occurs without the direct, personal, immediate action of God, but he follows his precise divine plan so intimately and perfectly that some people are led into the belief that it all happ...

Re: "Tree" or "Web" of Life? A Tale of Red Wolf "Species"

The term "species" is a human construct to help in the understanding the relationships between organisms, and so obviously has blurred edges. There are many species which are wholly reproductively distinct, but the nature of evolution is such that we wouldn't expect that invariably to be t...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

This isn't proof for evolution. Here is a very old post... Yes, I suppose it must be. It starts well, but soon becomes no more than a litany of creationist 'facts' which are, of course, wholly disputed by evolutionists. Modern genetics has proven Darwin totally wrong. Obviously not. Yet evolutionis...
