Getting back to the original topic...
Hi alaninnont,

Having seen your various responses, I'm wondering if you would be willing to comment on the opening questions posed in the Original Post (OP) of this thread (dating from Dec. 2006):

platypus writes:


1) One Family Tree unites all of life and
2) Species change through time and place

...
Of these two points of evolution, Dr. Roughgarden makes two claims.

1) These two ideas must be taught in every science curriculum.
2) Neither of these ideas are directly in conflict with the Bible.

What do you think? Do you consider it plausible or implausible that "one family tree unites all of life"? You seem to have spent some time looking at materials that discuss some relevant evidence. What is your assessment of the materials and evidence?

Do you consider it plausible or implausible that a person can sincerely claim a belief in the God of the Bible (or perhaps "belief in the Bible") and also accept the first two assertions as true? I'm not asking for your opinion about atheists. I'm asking for your opinion about understanding evidence, and how that relates to understanding the Bible.

And, since it was asked in the OP, do you have any problem with the notion that those first two assertions must be taught in every science curriculum?


autotelic adj. (of an entity or event) having within itself the purpose of its existence or happening.
