Things Louis Bouroune
Dredge writes:

"This theory (evolution) has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless".

- (the late) Louis Bouroune, Professor of Biology, University of Strasbourg and Director of the Strasbourg Zoological Museum.

Dredge earlier used the quote here.

Hypothesis, conclusion, theory
Exactly, when a hypothesis grows up it becomes a conclusion... not a theory.

I would say that the conclusion becomes part of the theory, the theory of (biological) evolution being the entire collected knowledge of how life came to be as it is. The conclusion is theory, and many smaller theories come together to become a larger theory.

The full theory of (biological) evolution is (dare I say) huge.

Let's call this the Genesis 2:7 message
It never ceases to amaze me that in this day and age there are educated adults who believe that dead matter can somehow produce life.

Unless God is involved, I suppose.

quote:
Genesis 2:7 - And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Source, King James version

Might not God have started a very simple form of life from "the dust of the ground"? (Theistic abiogenisis/evolution in action).

Superstition will never die.

Such as Genesis 2:7?
