Re: Rewording the topic starter
The actual question is one for you to answer. Do you have any evidence for an alternative explanation for the life that exists on this planet?

The evidence science has revealed all points to evolution being the process that led to the diversity of life we see today.

The only way to replace the Theory of Evolution as the explanation is to actually have a better theory that explains ALL the evidence.

Making up BS flaws in evolutionary theory is not supporting evidence for ID.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Re: this ID topic is to be approached scientifically
... I want the reader to question themselves while recognizing any gaps in their knowledge. ...

Current gaps in knowledge prove nothing but a current gap in knowledge. The open-minded skeptic will say that there is no need to jump to conclusions until more information is available. Those interested in the question can pursue it scientifically as much as they like. Something IDologists seem incapable of actually doing.

This seems to be a standard refrain from the "evolution smackdowners." "The readers wouldn't have asked all the questions themselves and done the research for decades, because that is not how this writer arrived at his argument."

They seem to think that gaps in our knowledge cannot ever be understood or explained by science. And they also seem to think that they can slip a creator into gaps in our knowledge, without adding any knowledge, based on evidence, and that scientists are going say "Oh yeah, thanks"?

Every one of these guys that come in here give themselves away within a few posts. They don't know what evolution is or how it works, so they have no chance of convincing anyone that they can refute our explanation of the evidence, all the evidence.

Drive-by?
I guess ssope only had one question...
