... You will learn a lot here, ...
Particularly if you WANT
to learn about things like evolution and how the theory of evolution explains the evidence of life on earth, whether that evidence is the fossil record, the genetic record, the historic record and the world around us.
involves changes in the composition of hereditary traits, and changes to the frequency of their distributions within breeding populations from generation to generation, in response to ecological challenges and opportunities ... and it is a FACT
that this has been observed to occur in virtually every living species ...
... while feeling like you are swimming upstream if you debate against evolutionary theory
, also known as "phyletic change", is the long term evolution of the entire (breeding) population of a species over multiple generations ... and it is a FACT
that this too has been observed to occur, and it is fully explained by the process of evolution.
involves an evolutionary branching event of a parent species into two or more closely related sister species, where the parent population and each daughter branch (and any subsequent smaller branches) form a nested hierarchy called a "Clade"; a process that leads to the development of a greater diversity of species in the world ... and it is a FACT
that this has also been observed to occur, and it is fully explained by the process of evolution.
The Theory of Evolution
(ToE), stated in simple terms, is that the process
of anagenesis (phyletic speciation), and the process
of cladogenesis (divergent speciation and the formation of nested hierarchies), are sufficient to explain the diversity of life as we know it, from the fossil record, from the genetic record, from the historic record, and from everyday record of the life we observe in the world all around us.
Dr. Adequate is the resident sarcasm expert. Think of the two older guys in the balcony on the muppet show ...
And many creationists could be compared to the Three Stooges
, hitting each other with 2x4,s or poking the others in the eye, rather that provide substantiative evidence for their (often crackpot) concepts, and how they don't work together to arrive at any kind of consensus on those concepts ...
Concepts such as are bandied about by IDologists making silly claims like proteins are both hardware and software ...
