A famous story involving Abraham Lincoln usefully illustrates this see Rachelsp. Lincoln was allegedly arguing that we are all ultimately self-interested when he suddenly stopped to save a group of piglets from drowning.
Evolution Not Supported By Facts! This theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. On many campuses, any professor who admits having doubts about the "factual" nature of evolution would be laughed off the campus and out of his job.
But today, more and more courageous scientists are publicly admitting what they have known privately for years: Does evolution square with the facts? Evolutionists Great Con Men "Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling may be the greatest hoax ever.
In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact. Unfortunately, this is not strictly true.
Do Fossils Prove It? I fully agree with your comments on the lack of direct illustration of evolutionary transition in my book.
If I knew of any, fossil or living, I would certainly have included them Yet Gould and the American Museum people are hard to contradict when they say there are no transitional fossils I will lay it on the line--there is not one such fossil for which one could make a watertight argument.
Evolution requires intermediate forms between species and paleontology does not provide them But What About Those Bones? The problem with a lot of anthropologists is that they want so much to find a hominid that any scrap of bone becomes a hominid bone. But the World Is So Old It is obvious that radiometric techniques may not be the absolute dating methods that they are claimed to be.
Age estimates on a given geological stratum by different radiometric methods are often quite different sometimes by hundreds of millions of years.
Carbon Will Tell Us When Did Dinosaurs Really Live? The existence of dinosaurs long before man came along has been almost a basic tenet of faith for the evolutionist. But what if the footprints of both man and dinosaur were found together?
In the Journal of Geological Education, Vol. Why Do They Do It? Since the facts do not prove evolution, since the fossil record does not show any transition from one species to another, since "scientific" dating methods have been proven unreliable, let us remember that for those who desperately desire to reject God, evolution is a religion of last resort.
If there is no Creator, there can be no sin, and no need of a Saviour. Lunn summed up the curious faith of the evolutionist as follows: Those supposedly omniscient scientists who still teach evolution as though it were fact are finally seen for what they areIn short, evolution as a real phenomenon is settled science; and the scientific theory for how evolution happens is so well documented by the evidence that this explanation is as close to a scientific fact as any explanation can be.
Remember: scientific facts refer to critical observations of natural phenomena. Many significant parts of evolution have .
Does evolution square with the facts? Here are the statements of several scientific leaders as found in The Quote Book, published by Creation Science Foundation Ltd.
Evolutionists Great Con Men "Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling may be the greatest hoax ever. Those in the general public who reject evolution are divided on whether there is a scientific consensus on the topic, with 47% saying scientists agree on evolution and 46% saying they do not.
3A series of court decisions have prohibited the teaching of creationism or intelligent design in public schools. Scientific Fact No. 4 - Single Cell Complexity Proves Evolution is Wrong Scientists a century ago believed the smallest single living cell was a simple life form.
The theory developed that perhaps lightning struck a pond of water, causing several molecules to combine in a random way, which by chance resulted in a living cell. A transcript of the evolution hearings held by the Board of Education of Kansas in May In conclusion, this is an intriguing side issue and hopefully someone can clarify the story and solve the mystery.
It may just be a coincidence after all.
