Re: Bizarre logic.
Eledhan,

I must have hit a nerve, but oh well. My only point in this whole thing is, there is a leap of faith on both sides, and no matter how you slice it, you are never going to be able to convince me that it doesn't take faith to believe in evolution

Now there speaks an open mind!

Evolution requires as much "faith" to accept as any other scientific theory. A valid scientific theory requires a proposition that makes predictions that are borne out as data/evidence. Evolution fits the bill via a wealth of interdisciplinary correlation, creationism doesn't, period.

Creationism requires religious faith, evolution "requires" an acceptance based on a wealth of evidence.

Re: Bizarre logic.
inkorrekt,

Creationism requires religious faith, evolution "requires" an acceptance based on a wealth of evidence (Mark) "which is missing". Evolution creates hypothesis first and is desperately attempting to fit in the missing evidence. No wonder they are angry when they are questioned.

The evidence exists that support the hypothesis, that there is potentially more evidence to be found (or not) in no way detracts from the FACT that evolutionary theory is supported by multidisciplinary evidence. That's like saying gravitational theory is on shaky ground because we don't know what causes the force itself.

I'm not sure what you hoped to achieve by posting rhetoric, to help convince yourself, perhaps? Can you tell me what evidence palaeontology brings to evolutionary theory? If not, then there really isn't much point engaging with someone who can't say what evidence exists, rather than what doesn't.

Mark

Re: Bizarre logic.
Inkorrekt,

Mark, all that information that is given as evidence is very very hard to believe. The laws of chemistry do not allow them to happen.

What law of chemistry? Who formulated that law?

And where is the palaeontological evidence I asked for?
