With so many facts disputing the naturalistic theory I’ve decided to lay out the biggest ones individually. As this is presented to public school students as a fact Im going to use the higher scientific standards of evidence

I was impressed that you intend to use the 'highest standard of evidence” in you arguments but you then spoiled it by immediately not using any standards of evidence at all.

Just taking your very first example of “A false representation of an evolutionary tree that would be typically presented as factual to young school kids“ you need to show, 'with the highest standard of evidence' where that diagram is used in schools, to whom and when, then show where it is wrong and why any errors might give a fatally false impression to its intended audience. Finally you have to show why it affects the ToE's validity as settled science.

Maybe when you've done that to everyone's satisfaction, you can move on to your second claim.

The first illustration is very similar to the ones iv seen being shown to primary school kids. If u don't agree then show me what is used.

You're not attributing your answers so it's difficult to know who you expect to reply to you, but I'll guess this is aimed at me?

You claimed...

quote:
“As this is presented to public school students as a fact Im going to use the higher scientific standards of evidence which is used in the applied sciences where evidence has to be 100% accurate.“

So I think it totally reasonable to ask you to show when and where the diagram was used and to whom and to explain why you think it's a problem. That's a basic minimum if you want to comply with your own high standards.

If you can't actually do that your premise fails at the first fence.
