Re: Round 2: Neo-Paleyism FAILS to explain all the evidence: Silly Design does.
Your post (no.110) is nothing more than a "credo". You believe, but you have no evidence on which to base your belief other than an old book containing the creation mythology of some Bronze-Age Middle-Eastern desert dwellers.
This is not science. You might as well believe that the Harry Potter stories are factually true. Or that the Sun rotates around the Earth - observational data of the kind you provide supports both of these beliefs.
Hi, thanks for the welcome. I hope the off topic flavour didn't offend.
I was responding to incredibly uninformed statements made in this thread by ICDESIGN. Anyone who can type "ID science" with a straight face clearly knows very little (probably nothing at all) about genes, proteins, and of course evolution. In fact they almost certainly know little or nothing about any kind of "science". Post 110 was just mindless Bible-bashing.
In many ways, "thread drift" off topic is analogous to evolution, if you think about it.
Re: Round 5: Neo-Paleyism still FAILS to explain all the evidence: Silly Design does.
Explaining why the obvious design in the world (as we're assuming in this thread) points to an "Intelligent" designer...
The "obvious" design you refer to is not design at all. The problem is that you are viewing the biosphere through 3000-year old spectacles. The ancients had no explanation for life on earth, so they just said "god did it", and made up some stories to back up that hypothesis.
Nowadays, however, we know that all life on earth had a common ancestor, and evolved from it, and everything alive is related to everything else. DNA sequencing proves this.
