Look Out! Lay person on site....lol
I have not studied genetics or any other field of science but I have a question to you all. Picture me as the average Canadian guy with no formal scientific knowledge. I was brought up believing in evolutionary theory but without sufficient knowledge to argue the merits. I’ve tried to grasp the science of macroevolution by going over 1/3 of the pages within:
29+ Evidences for Macroevolution
The Scientific Case for Common Descent
(Excellent source of information.)
I’m sure I will read it over and over again throughout the next couple of years until I get a good working lay knowledge of evolution on the genetic level.
Why I’m bothering you good folks.
I’ve read articles on the avian flu which all use the word evolution several times. Some of the articles include ridicule of Intelligent Design folk that if it becomes necessary, needing to make a decision on whether or not to take the flu shot, when one exists.
What is within I.D. theory that would generate this point of ridicule?
What would go against the I.D. grain if H5N1 mutates into a human to human transmitable decease? Heck. I hardly know how to pose the question so in lay terms please.
I made a comment on a community forum that is all messed up and I would like to clean the mess up in order to properly inform those that would read the post.
Some background of what I’ve been reading about for the last 2 weeks:
Irreducible complexity which I feel is phylosophy
Specified complexity by Dembski which I figure, from what I read here on the Panda’s Thumb is nothing but bad math. ( Although I couldn’t follow the math in question. )
I’ve found nothing but slant on Discovery Institutes articles with nothing much to add to real science when presenting evolution. They pose a lot of questions but do little to answer them.
I’ve found I can’t find peer-review publications of any I.D. claims.
I.D. offers nothing that I can find digestable.
I’ve read a lot of the database here on Panda’s Thumb and will continue to read for a long time yet.
You know the old adage, “Better to have others think you stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” I blew it big time….lol
So. Can anyone help me untangle my misconceptions? I would like to go back to the boards where I originally posted and correct my information as I don’t feel I did the case for evolution any favours with what I posted there, so far.

I think I was looking to hard.
The simple answer is that I.D. thinks evolutionary science is bad science.

Bad link offered above.
Here's the good link.

A Law is descriptive.
A Theory is explanatory.
Not all theories become laws. The ToE is destined to remain a scientific theory which is not to be confused with the lay or common usage of the word theory being a hunch or a guess.
