Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Audacity: And that life could not arise elsewhere? From what source - what ultimately FIRST source? There are several ideas. One of them---an old one---goes like this: "In the 1920s, Russian scientist Aleksandr Oparin and English scientist J. B. S. Haldane both separately proposed what's now called...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

I agree that evolutionary scientists that disagree with an evolutionary theory or mechanism still believe in molecules to man. There really aren't many choices. Either life as we see it arose somehow by a natural mechanism or by the hand of a higher power. Who might these " evolutionary scientists ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Re: Ken and Plantinga, the former is first and foremost a YEC (who has his own religious business niche to protect ;)). The latter is first and foremost a long-time respected philosopher who one will often come across when exploring epistemology, cognition or philosophy of religion. He is of Christ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Kurieuo, My apologies, but after my posting, which you quoted---something I was unaware of---I decided to edit it and focus a bit more on Plantinga's statements in your linked article. I've copy/pasted it here. " If you're going to quote Plantinga is Ken Ham far behind? While more literate and far m...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Contemporary evolutionary and scientific thinking sees evolution as a random process, said to be unplanned and unguided without any intelligent plan or design. Although, allowances are tolerated for those who believe in God, so long as any logical conclusions to such is kept to one's self. I think ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

So in regards theistic evolution. Did God create the heavens and the earth (with all the ingredients for life/abiogenesis) and then just leave it for natural processes to take over for a molecules-to-monkey event? Or did God front load the ingredients, ensuring that abiogenesis would take place? Di...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

I'm sorry, but your syntax is confusing. You ask, " What does not breeding lead to? " which I take to mean, " what happens if two species don't mate? " for which the logical answer is, " Nothing. " Nothing, in the sense of reproduction, can happen if mating doesn't take place. And yes, I do claim t...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Okay -- at this point I'll concede that I don't know some of the correct terminology -- for instance your list of the cats -- they are all a form of the 'cat' family. A cougar would have a domestic cat for lunch. Cougars mate with other cougars, correct? Yup. Have never heard of margays for instanc...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Whether evolution was the vehicle used or creation was that vehicle, evolution in any case needs existing life to act upon. Biological evolution, is logically sound when used as a tool of speciation, logically works when life is already present -- e.g., two species, one being naturally selected ove...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

I'm just wondering, hypothetically to those who don't believe God created various species, what would species look like if God did punctuate life on Earth: similar or dissimilar? Is there any reason why there wouldn't be similar characteristics and morphologies between species? I assume you're talk...
