You have never addressed the issue of how it is that current scientific work can continue to progress if it is all based upon an utter falsehood perpetuated only through indoctrination or habit.

You have never addressed the concept of science being cumulative and progressive; with concepts A, B, and C being the basis of concepts D, E, and F, and so on.


I don't think you're being vague enough.

I see no other alternative to evolution than creationism of some sort or other. What possibilities do you have in mind?

At a quick glance it appears to be a list of creationist possibilities, which supports what I said anyway.


My mistake. I thought you were referring to the judeo-christian creation myth. If you believe that all creation "possibilities" should be treated equally and taught equally, I agree.

To tell you the truth, I do not support teaching evolution in school at all, but that's another story.

Re: "The same evidence"?

I'm sure the consensus is that it is attributed to continental drift. There is another theory that the magnetic polarity shifts every few thousand years and the poles reverse. Some have tried to make persuasive arguments in defense of it to explain why tropical plants are in an arctic region, but this particular claim lacks some backbone.


Having some background in research and calculations/computer modelings of actual data from space probes on planetary magnetic fields as well as some background in working in plant labs, I must admit that I am quite ignorant on how magnetic polarity shifts can explain tropical plant life being found in arctic regions, and as far as I know I have not heard of a single proposal for such a "theory". Mind explaining how it works or who proposed it?

In any case, the point I'm trying to make is we are all looking at the same evidence, we are just interpreting it differently.

What does finding tropical plants in arctic regions tell you?
