Can we restart the evolution thread?

    Pastor says he wouldn't go to a mechanic when he needs a surgeon, so he goes to scientist for science.

    So since science is based on guesswork, would he go to a palm reader for a guess on his future?

    Again, science is everchanging, and yesterday's fact is today's rebuff.

    Carry on....or out.

    A hypothesis, which is then attempted to be proven, and often, the proof is altered, or further proof rebuffs the former proof.

    Maybe a Moddy can do everyone a favour and delete this thread now.

    Yawn...How many times do you need to have your ass handed to you on this argument? Three times a year? Four times? Five times? Please stop.
     
  6. Gravity is, as we know, guesswork.
    Good guess, Isaac.

    He can't stop. That would involve evolution.

    I don't understand why conservatives aren't bigger supporters of the theory of evolution. It's all about adapting to your environment, survival of the fittest. If don't adapt, you don't survive.
    It's personal responsibility. I thought conservatives were big on personal responsibility.

    You're conflating political theory with religious belief. That, like creationism, is something else I'm uncomfortable with.

    If you want proof of evolution, all you have to do is ask a doctor about bacteria that have become immune to penicillin and other antibiotics. How do you think that happened? Magic?

    Well, even the ardent creationists will allow for a limited form of evolving by current organisms, if I recall my reading and listening on the subject. Which is sporting of them.

    Walls can't hand asses to anyone. They just sit there refusing to move or bend.

    A hypothesis begins as an "educated guess" that seeks to validate itself with proof.

    Your move, puds.
