Re: Darwin's Doubt

I'm not making any claims here about whether Neanderthals may or may not have mated with Humans... in fact I do not have a firm opinion on that topic. What I was showing was that the fossil evidence indicates that humans and Neanderthals coexisted in Europe 35,000 to 40,000 years ago. If you wish t...

Re: Darwin's Doubt

However even if you believe that about the DNA it still does not prove that they mated with humans and even lived at the same time as humans did. I've considered this before and have considered interpretaing Genesis 1 and 2 as you are but the reason why I ultimately rejected it is because scientist...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

CNN (who cannot be accused of being remotely sympathetic towards Kavanaugh) has the following article regarding the ongoing Judiciary Committee investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh. https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/22/politics/kavanaugh-ford-accuser-nomination/index.html White House spoke...

Re: Darwin's Doubt

Of course, the big picture greatly conflicts with the supposed dates for Adam and Eve and the belief that ALL humans came from them. Unless there is something I'm missing, that doesn't seem possible - but that's another issue entirely. Which is precisely why I have come to the conclusion that both ...

Re: Darwin's Doubt

I really don't see how you cannot see how the Gap Theory is already proven true based on just the fossil record because they prove the former world existed and perished Because the Gap Theory is directly contradicted by the fossil record (and Scripture). The fossil record shows continuity between t...

Re: The Experimental Evidence against Darwinistic Evolution

For me the strongest arguments against the adequacy of Darwinistic Evolution come from 40 years of experimentation demonstrating what random mutation and natural selection can and cannot do at the molecular level. In 2010 Michael Behe wrote an interesting paper for The Quarterly Review of Biology t...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

Everything I've seen so far points to this being a last minute smear and delay campaign on the part of the Democrats against a moral person who has absolutely no history of assaulting, mistreating, or harassing women. I do think it is appropriate for people in power to be held accountable for assaul...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Now the next layer of that, is to read it into the context of Process Structuralism , advocates of such will say that we see the same structures in lifeforms appearing over and over again (i.e., "convergent evolution"), that this points to the fact that the physical laws at work will NECESSARILY pr...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The view of randomness in evolution is: A mutation is caused by environmental factors, such as solar radiation. That mutation, whatever it is, is a random one- there is no way to predict what that mutation will be. Let me disagree slightly with your statement. 40 years of scientific experiments stu...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

I don't think 'natural selection' (ie... survival of the fittest) is the problem here. Intelligent Design says nothing to oppose the reality or effectiveness of natural selection. What ID opposes is the adequacy of 'random mutation' working with 'natural selection' to explain: - the structure and co...

Re: Great video series for Old Earth Creationism

One of the questions that has been brought up in this thread is Is Intelligent Design Science? Stephen Meyer discusses that question in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6xRGtJHC1E Meyer rightly points out that a definition of Science that by definition excludes Intelligent Design also ha...
