RAZD on the "it's all intepretation and presupposition" fallacy
RAZD in the thread "So Just How is ID's Supernatural-based Science Supposed to Work?": message #50

RAZD seems to have the same basic I answer I give to the claim that the evidence for evolution is just a matter of how one interprets the evidence, but I like the way he expressed it here. I may borrow this one myself.

Re: RAZD on the "it's all intepretation and presupposition" fallacy
(memo to self - sometimes it is the short and sweet answers that get the most traction ... )

And of course the evidence shows that those "alternate presuppositions" ARE used by ID ... :laugh:

Thanks.

dwise1 on Transitional Evidence
Message 50

He lists all the evidence of similarities and intermediate forms and then summarizes the results:

So Archaeopteryx is 2-27ths bird (7.4%), 17-27ths coelurosaur (63%), and 6-27ths transisitional between the birds and coelurosaurs (22%).

Kind of hard to argue that Archy is not intermediate in form between ceolurosaurs and modern birds ... without ignoring this evidence.

Enjoy. (I did).
