I suggest a good read of Doubting Darwin might enlighten you to the calliber of people who have grave problems with evolution and particularly mutation and natural selection.


It isn't about the "calliber" of people, it is about the substance of their claims.  For example, you can have the best sports team on paper, but if they don't win any games, they're obviously not the best team.  Since these people are of such a high "calliber," Where is the research in the scientific journals?  Where is the Theory of Intelligent Design?  How does the non-cultic, intellectual and rational side you're on explain where the "broken" vitamin-C gene in humans and chimpanzees originated?  Coffee on the blueprints?

You're in here demanding to know how helium turned into a human brain.  While someone could sit you down and explain this to you, Richard Dawkins' "Cosmos" series is a start.  I want to know HOW a lump of clay, rib, magic reed, or the urine and excrement of the gods turned into a human brain, you know, like what processes were involved and how the 2nd law of thermodynamics applied.

Yes, I meant Carl Sagan billion.  Thank you for the response, although none of them were answers to any questions.  I answered your question, I'd appreciate it if you'd have answered mine.  Once again you've failed to provide anything that even resembles a response.  Considering that you are undoubtedly using English as a second language, your responses are still incoherent garbage.  

You said you have two engineering degrees, but you don't have a phD in metallurgy do you?  Coming here and making baseless challenges with your level of education would be like me taking an arc welding course at a local community college and proclaiming to know as much as you about engineering.  Are you aware of how stupid you look when you issue "challenges" to evolution an area in which you have ZERO expertise?

I guarantee that you know things I don't know.  I guarantee  that you are knowledgeable about things on which many of the brilliant posters on Panda's Thumb know next to nothing.  But they have the same edge on you, this IS their area of expertise, they aren't some troll schlepp with a Master's degree in engineering, they are scientists.

For an idea as to how bad your English is, this guys writing sounds ALOT like yours are you the same person?

Ok I am making a logical statement from a Biblical literalists perspective.  I am making a prediction wearing my "Bible glasses" as Ken Ham told me to do.  In the Bible story of the Tower of Babel, people were able to climb up the tower and esentially watch what God was doing several thousand years ago.  If you could do it then, you could do it now.  I predict that we will be able to build a tower into heaven and see what God is doing.

You have no alternative mechanisms, offer no alternative theory, you just have some stupid helium to the human brain argument, that you call your, "silver bullet."  Guess what?  The emperor has no clothes.

This is an excerpt from Chris Colby's faq at talkorigins.org:
Quote
Evolution is not progress. The popular notion that evolution can be represented as a series of improvements from simple cells, through more complex life forms, to humans (the pinnacle of evolution), can be traced to the concept of the scale of nature. This view is incorrect.

All species have descended from a common ancestor. As time went on, different lineages of organisms were modified with descent to adapt to their environments. Thus, evolution is best viewed as a branching tree or bush, with the tips of each branch representing currently living species. No living organisms today are our ancestors. Every living species is as fully modern as we are with its own unique evolutionary history. No extant species are "lower life forms," atavistic stepping stones paving the road to humanity.

A related, and common, fallacy about evolution is that humans evolved from some living species of ape. This is not the case -- humans and apes share a common ancestor. Both humans and living apes are fully modern species; the ancestor we evolved from was an ape, but it is now extinct and was not the same as present day apes (or humans for that matter). If it were not for the vanity of human beings, we would be classified as an ape. Our closest relatives are, collectively, the chimpanzee and the pygmy chimp. Our next nearest relative is the gorilla.

peach:  Of your many verbose responses it is nice to see one that is in any way civil.

When the bible says, "do not eat the sacred raisin cookies"  what am I to do?

When the bible gives me two different orders in which God created life, which am I to believe?

When Jesus said, "If you pray with a love of God in your heart, you can make mountains leap into the sea" does that make him a liar?  Or just make everyone one of the unfaithful?

When Genesis 6 says "there were giants in the earth those days"  are they dinosaurs or are they Nephilum like Og?  If they were like Og, where are their bones?

When I am told, "do not say to your neighbor let me help you with the speck in your eye when you have a plank in your own" what if I see that plank and speck as sin, does that mean we aren't meant to evangelize?

When I pray, I pray to the Christian God, I was raised Christian.  I can only percieve the nature of God as being that which I had learned in the scriptures.  But when I look at the glaring errors and contradictions in the Bible, I ask myself, does God write books?

There is a growing amount of agreement among Biblical scholars that Genesis and Job are the two oldest books in the Bible, yet nobody would percieve that from its organization.

If that statement is so laughable to you, take it up with Chris Colby over at talkorigins.

I think you need serious psychotherapy, or have yourself hooked up to the Super VII Neural Pathomizer or whatver invention that whackjob L. Ron Hubbard invented.

You love to talk about spontaneous generation.  Those creationist scientists responsible for almost all of science (which is true from a certain point of view) also thought eels were spontaneously generated if a horse hair was dropped overboard into the sea.  Then we discovered the Sargasso Sea, and baby eels weren't made by horse hairs anymore.

Just like we found the Sargasso Sea, we found evolution. Suddenly everything made sense, the geologic column, the fossil record, the large concentrations of marsupials in Austrailia.  If you say continental drift (which AiG supports) isolated the marsupials it makes sense.  If you tell me people departed post-Babel with a koala in one arm and a wallaby in the other, that doesn't.  If you tell me insects survived the Noahic Flood by building rafts, that doesn't make sense either.  Evolution provides answers that the Bible can't even touch on.

There is religion.  There is science.  If your God insists on living only within the margins of science, I see why you want to keep those margins wide.  Furthermore, what kind of geek prints his arguments on the internet to show to his professor?  Get a wife kid.

evopreach,

To answer your question, no.

This just in from the AP.  The Scopes trial is over, the monkey lost.  If that ancient quote was so "devastating" where was it in 1987?  I am sick of hearing the IDC people yapping on about how devastating all their stuff is going to be, yet there is never any devastation (except on the science education of those they influence.)

So, you stated that you believe in a one time supernatural causation for the origin of life on Earth (exactly as it is accounted for in the Bible.)  Let me ask you this, what is the definition of supernatural?  You want the supernatural in the science classroom and you're the even keeled one?

Take your blasphemy somewhere else evopreach, you are not the mouthpiece of God and calling us all kinds of names is certainly falling far short of making disciples of all nations.

Feduccia has broken more new ground with his "big-bang" theory. He thinks that the ancestors of all today's birds evolved explosively in only about 5 to 10 million years. In traditional theory, all modern bird orders appeared by 80 to 90 million years ago and "oozed" into the present. That makes no sense, Feduccia says, because the cataclysmic event that killed the dinosaurs would have extinguished most birds too.

Feduccia contends that about 65 million years ago, most birds died with the dinosaurs, except for a group of shorebirds and possibly a few others. Fossils from just before that time show lots of primitive birds, with the shorebirds the only kind of modern birds present. "But shortly after 65 million years ago, all the primitive birds are gone. All you're finding are these shorebirds. And then by about 53 million years ago, all the modern groups are present," he says. "So somewhere between 65 and 53 million years ago, all these modern types of birds evolved."

Also from the same article:

He agrees with the theory that the common ancestor of both ancient and modern bird orders was a small, ground-dwelling reptile that took to the trees for hiding, sleeping, or nesting. After this "protoavis" started climbing, it began leaping from tree to tree.

Paley did not have a precise mathematcal formation of his ideas; this is what Dembski has provided.


Is PT still having a quote of the day?

Yep all of Dembski's predictions will come true.  Perhaps even, evolution's "Waterloo in Dover."  What projects are being undertaken by the Intelligent Design Creationist movement in regards to "junk DNA has a purpose."  Yep evolution is sure going to "lose."  Ya'll need to put up or shut up (and sidestepping peer-review doesn't cut it.)  Are you aware of the numerous times that junk science known as IDC has stepped into the legal arena to defeat the "darwinists?"  Are you aware that their record is worse than that of the Washington Generals?  When the time came for IDC to lay their cards down on the table, they were bluffing everytime.  Dover hasn't been any different, no matter how much your idol wished it otherwise and proclaimed it to be so.

Was there a point to that post two above this?  Please elaborate, as I fail to see your point.  What is wrong with feminism, isn't it the Bible that makes all people equal and evolution that causes all the evil in the world such as racism and sexism?

Additionally, are you aware that WAD has ceased posting at PT to defend his ideas?  Could this be because they lambast his ummm...snicker..."precise mathematcal formation" to the extent that he only lurks and has ceased posting?  He much prefers to post on his own blog, deleting any comment that slightly dissents from his point of view.  Yep his "precise mathematcal formation" is so correct that he doesn't even have to defend it anywhere that he doesn't possess the ability to censor any dissent.

I haven't been on this forum in a long time.  In fact, I haven't been on many forums in a long time.  I haven't checked uncommondescent in years.  I also have strongly avoided the topic of Intelligent Design/Creationism in regular life.

Why?

I almost failed out of college.
It wasn't drugs, video games, drinking, or sex.
It wasn't stupidity or laziness.
It was Creationism.

I became wrapped up in arguing with those idiots.  I posted to blogs and websites.  I attended lectures(on ID and creationism) and "special study groups"(Christian study groups).  I learned more about biology than an Electrical Engineer ever should.  I broke up with one girlfriend and started dating a biologist.  I let my studies slip, and I angered some of the faculty at my University who were devoutly religious individuals.  My grades were mediocre and my popularity with my professors was waining.
(I might be exaggerating a little.  In fact, I might be exaggerating a lot)

I had to completely disconnect myself from the argument.  I put aside books like "Misquoting Jesus" and ignored "Expelled".  I joined forums on topics like Linux and Math.  I even quit visiting my aunt(a diehard Creationist).  It wasn't that I hated creationists, but I had started this journey with the opinion that most people are generally intelligent.  I assumed that creationists were simply brainwashed individuals.  I learned that it wasn't true.  It drove me almost insane until I took a break.

It all helped, and a lot of thought and meditation got me back to relaxing.

The moral of my story?
Don't let it get to you.  There are people in this world that are dumber than you can imagine.  If you let them bother you, you will go insane.  It might be relatively simple for someone to go lookup "WD-40" on the internet and find that it isn't "fish oil", but you aren't going to be able to convince some people of that truth.
You might know, from research and experience, that evolution is a observed natural phenomenon...but you won't be able to convince some people of that fact

Just let it slide.
Ignore the idiots and let it slide.
Just step in and stop someone if they think they can drink WD-40  ;)

I went through almost the exact same thing.  Except I was also doing the other 3 things you mentioned =P (yes I actually would be sitting there smoking a bowl reading PT).  I generally tend to lurk (unless somehow horses come up) as I don't have a science degree.

I started going to all the Creo/ID lectures I could find flyers for, I even read a few of their crap books.  Then I would read many of the scathing reviews available to me.  Eventually, I just went straight to the reviews =).

But I take a much more aggressive approach.  When creationists try to spew their nonsense at me, I will argue right back at them (attacking flood geology, IC and such).  Not that I ever think I can sway their opinions (although I sincerely wish I could).  I just like slapping their "bible glasses" off their faces.

You seem to have gotten involved in this "debate" in an almosted identical manner to how I did.  I have actually considered becoming a creationist speaker.  I really think I could argue for it just as well as I could argue against it.  There has to be a huge degree of insincerity involved in giving "science" lectures at churches.

What’s funny is that the vast majority of hard scientists and engineers would probably agree with everything you wrote and that evolution is far more legitimate than the other current offerings, then view (probably secretly) the evolutionary biology and creationism share one trait, both are 100% completely worthless.

Engineering are developing the tools and mechanisms of our modern society. We power your homes, we build your buildings, we are the foundation of society. While scientifically correct, evolutionary biology gives society nothing more than cute 1 hr discovery channel specials. Instead of pursuing this worthless endeavor, why don’t you use your collect brainpower to actually improved society. Cheaper/greener forms of energy, healthier foods, cleaner air, instead of what can be only accurately described as nothing more than a “hobby”. In sum, what’s the point? Are creationists individuals with such poor mental ability to handle scientific topics? Are evolutionary biologists who they are vs being chemists/physicists/engineers because they are incapable of dealing with the intellectual tasks of differential equations/thermodynamics/quantum physics? I know this sounds harsh, but deal with the realities that w/o the theory of evolution, our society would exactly be as it is currently. (Do you think there were not athiests b4 Darwin?) Then think about physics.

The true “killer” of evolution isn’t from the ID or creationists. Actually, this debate has helped evolution’s cause for now the theory is top-of-mind in our non-scientific populace. The dagger that would kill evolution would be if people were more knowledgeable in the sciences, esp. the hard sciences of physics and chemistry, the sciences that supply the framework of our civilization. Then evolution would just fade away, not from challenges of how legitimate evolution is, but from disinterest as people would be working on more important things.


I don't even have anything to say...it sorta speaks for itself...

You would certainly think so, no?  Those f*ucking moronic creationists sure are able to raise some serious cash for their projects. Maybe you can take some pointers from them?

You folks try to convince us that there are virtually no supporters of creation science, yet look how much money they raised for something they thought was important.  So, think of all the cash you folks could generate seeing as there are millions upon millions of supporters of "good" science.

That's easy.  One side actually conducts research, advances science, publishes in peer-reviewed technical journals, faces competition for grants, and has their research scruitinized by others in their field.  Basically, anything they have to present is far beyond the understanding of most people.

The other side sells video tapes in church basements (essentially taking money that would potentially be donated to the church instead), face little to no scrutiny from within their own "field" regardless of the numerously apparent conflicting opinions, they publish minimal "research" and instead focus on press releases, and present "science" in factless one-liners meant to reinforce their constituency's already determined conclusions.

For not being federally funded, they do a lot, though they are limited because of cash flow.  I just recently ran across a person in Second Life who works on creationist projects in her spare time (baraminology). Get a hold of some creationist journals, books, etc.  I've found all kinds of creationists papers on the Internet lately that I never knew existed.  There are creationist seminars all the time in which creation scientists discuss what they've been working on.  It's amazing how much *is* going on in creation science considering that everything that funds it is volunteer.

Since I am unable to post in the regular threads, I'll post this here:
The Argument From Impossibility

BTW, I am "chucky darwin".


From your link:

So the challenge is to explain how the current amino acid synthesis system in E. coli originated via natural mechanisms. How did each of the nineteen specific enzymes come to be? How did each of the nineteen steps in the biochemical pathway come together in the correct order to form these essential amino acids? What was the immediate precursor to the current system? What were all the intermediate steps? Remember that this explanation must account for each enzyme and each step.

I predict though that no one will be able to answer this challenge with any detail. This, and countless other origins, will forever remain an "Impossibility".

Ok, if theoretically nobody can ever possibly answer your question what conclusion would then be reached?

I looked up e.coli amino acid synthesis evolutionary pathways on PubMed and found several relevant articles...I wonder if you did the same?

Mine is one of level of intelligence, that ours is far below our Creator's.  Our intelligence is still "like" our Creator's in that we can do similar things - engineer, design, create, etc.  But our level of intelligence makes it impossible for us to ever fully understand the works of our Creator.  Bits and pieces is all we'll ever understand.

So you would agree that panspermia via aliens is an equally plausible starting point.

Aliens, an infinite god, or set of gods would be just as applicable to your hypothesis as it begins with the starting point of life on earth correct?  You are proposing that single-celled organisms are irreducibly complex and that all life on earth evolved from that point, if I am understanding you correctly.

Groundbreaking "Firsts" by this fossil
                                    These are firsts for true fossilization, not cast or endocast.
 Those "molds" have been found previously. This is different because it is true petrification of the actual organ.

First Rock certified to be a petrified human brain by a Brain Anatomy/ Neuro Instructor/  Researcher
First Rock to be certified to be a petrified human brain by a Geologist Phd.
First Rock to be certified to be a petrified human brain by a Physicist.
First Rock to be certified to be a petrified human brain by an M.D.
First Rock said to be a petrified human brain by a Cellular/ Micro Biologist.
First Rock that is a fossil found that has embedded fingerprints, and this is in material harder than case hardened steel.
First Rock with knife serrations in what was soft tissue.
First fossil found that has finger impressions from when it was organic.
  This list could go on and on and on...like first fossil with sulchi and gyri identified by a brain anatomy instructor
   but you get the picture.

Now, let's go to the possible list.

It is thought to be:

The first human fossil found with petrified blood.
The first fossil found with a bullet inside.
The first certified soft tissue fossil certified by individuals in the established scientific community.

Schedule advice for software design and production:

1. Think carefully about how long you believe it will take you to code the job.

2. Multiply the value by 4.

3. Ratchet the time units to the next higher unit: hours to days, days to weeks, and weeks to months.

So if you think that you can write that web application in 8 hours, what you tell the client is that you can deliver it in 32 days.

This method is depressingly accurate.

Hehe.  so true!  Especially when the customer is such a large company that your 8 hours of actual work truly do look like a month of what they could do on their own.  I bill at about $150 an hour (depending on the customer) and most of my jobs are nothing more than a glorified web developer.  I don't even want to know what the chief technologist bills for himself.

Creationism Poll on Facebook  IE...."haha yall are idiots and make me laugh. if you deny the great flood occured, you are disagreeing with about 95% of scientists. and how do you know the civilization was that old? were you there? plus 6000 is not an exact number. gaps in genealogies could indicate thats its almost 10000 yrs old. and you are right there is nothing random about DNA. it is exact and very intricate. the random part is the DNA coming into existence by itself"

Cooler heads have seemed to prevail in that poll/discussion however if you are feeling a bit political head over to the "impeach obama" polls...or a bit atheist check out the "is jesus the son of god" polls...there are so many people to argue with there.

oh and btw add me on facebook =P
