But that is not always true for certain important scientific disciplines. There are plenty of academic institutions out there failing in their core mission by encouraging the anti-science actions discussed in the article. Stomach first? Brain second? Lungs third? How about the chicken or Egg,?? Which came first? Oh, The Egg?? No magic Needed huh?? Noo… No Magic required there….

The hummingbird has wings that flap at up to times per second so it can hover at eat. Jellyfish Incredible!!! Of course no magic was necessary.. Not because it is part of science Which it is NOT but because…. The fact that old paintings in old cathedrals depict exactly this, is proof enough.

Take light for example, being both a particle and a wave. So we pretend to understand it as both a wave and a particle. Similarly, God, whatever that is, cannot be modelled. God IS the universe, the entirety of the laws that govern matter and energy. If evolution creates the complex from the simple which I find logically outrageous , then we have yet to discover the laws that force that to happen. But if that can be discovered, then and only then, have we finally explained the existence of the universe, and essentially, will have defined what God was and is.

The New Evolution Deniers
But, if we do finally figure how it must happen, then, that will be God. And again, it is not a humanoid. It came from amino acids. Which can be formed by running an electrical current such as the type that comes with a lightening strike through a mineral saturated solution. All multi-cellular animals started as colonies of single celled animals. Tasks were eventually done by specific sections of those colonies. Those sections became organs as they got more specialized. This process is still happening today and can be observed.
A life form does not go from being considered a colony creature to an organism until the component cells can no longer live on their own.
Intelligent people have 'unnatural' preferences and values that are novel in human evolution
It contains genetic information as a nucleus attached to a vacuole filled with food a yolk. It has a very short lifespan unless it meets another cell that has additional information, but no food. But, I do suspect that the pressure build up killed a lot of failed evolutionary paths for the beetle. It farts. And caustic digestive juices are expelled with those farts. Because evolution is driven by breeding and feeding. So they stay pretty much the same. Sharks are in the same boat.
But there are NEW jellyfish. As colony creatures move from being colonies to organisms their status changes. Bluebottles are working their way, ever so slowly, towards being actual jellyfish. It only precludes the stories men in ancient times told to try to describe what those gods were doing. That jellyfish line you love so much, about how come some jellyfish evolved further while others just stayed where they were. And it flourishes. But it might not maintain, or it might not ever move the same way as others did.
No one cares about the others as they are about as real as evolution is….
I guess you made your Ipse Dixit declaration.. You are referring to the Miller Urey experiments And similar ones till today look up the word Chirality.. You need 20 amino acids with the same L in order to even have a functioning protein..

There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor on any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence. Derek V. The secular myths of evolution have had a damaging effect on scientific research, leading to distortion, to needless controversy, and to gross misuse of science….
I mean the stories, the narratives about change over time. How the dinosaurs became extinct, how the mammals evolved, where man came from. These seem to me to be little more than story-telling. Colin Patterson, evolutionist and senior Paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History, which houses 60 million fossils. This fantasy of some people that evolution is just a belief of atheism is preposterous, and frankly, stale.
Intelligent Design ID has been thoroughly debunked, but sadly people maybe incl. So be it. This anti-atheism of his is weird and perplexing.

For he criticizes and rightly so, in many cases, or rather, some , but has no solutions of his own. Religion IS a problem more than a solution; it has more cons than pros. Fundamentally, it asks you to believe without evidence. It is a pity that in your quest to criticize atheism, you attack evolution. Posterity will marvel that so flimsy and dubious a hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.

Evolution is sustained largely by a propaganda campaign that relies on all the usual tricks of rhetorical persuasion: hidden assumptions, question-begging statements of what is at issue, terms that are vaguely defined and change their meaning in midargument, attacks of straw men, selective citation of evidence, and so on. The theory is also protected by its cultural importance. It is the officially sanctioned creation story to modern society, and publicly funded educational authorities spare no effort to persuade people to believe it. Hsu, geologist at the Geological Institute in Zurich.
I believe the bible because it fully explains the state of mankind and the state of the world. Sorry a tad philosophical there, forgive. Creation is a good place to start a discussion about God, once a person can see that there is an alternative explanation to evolution then they are open to further light. There is a caveat to any and all discussion of religion: faith is not a scientific subject, you have to put the idol of science aside, or at least accept its limitations before you can have a meaningful discussion about God, cos put v v simply, science is to do with the observable, and God Himself is not visible to us here and now.
I hope something of what I have tried to convey strikes a chord or maybe even chords with just one reader, every soul is equally precious, explain that scientifically! I am always amazed that so many humans firmly believe that god must conform to the writings of other humans. That god cannot be other than what humans experienced. That god is limited by the scope of human thought.
God never said anything about this day or that day. Men did. Men trying to describe a process infinitely beyond their understanding. Just as they tried to describe the mind of a being that is, to them, at best, unfathomable. What do I mean by evolution? Things change over time. The things that breed most become the prevailing life forms. Andrew You seem to be under the assumption that a theory should be replaced merely because we have observations that conflict with it. However, observations are experiences interpreted in the light of explanatory theories, which themselves could be so mistaken.
This could include theories about how sediment builds up over time in various scenarios. As such observations are theory laden. Second, even if we assume the amount of sediment actually inconsistent with an ancient earth, those observations, per se, do not result in a new explanatory theory.
