Evolution: Fact or Fallacy?
"I have little hesitation in saying that a sickly pall now hangs over the big bang theory."
(Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomer, cosmologist, and mathematician, Cambridge University)

"The pathetic thing is that we have scientists who are trying to prove evolution, which no scientist can ever prove."
(Dr Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize winner and eminent evolutionist)

"The theory of evolution suffers from grave defects, which are more and more apparent as time advances. It can no longer square with practical scientific knowledge."
(Dr A Fleishmann, Zoologist, Erlangen University)

"It is good to keep in mind ... that nobody has ever succeeded in producing even one new species by the accumulation of micromutations. Darwin's theory of natural selection has never had any proof, yet it has been universally accepted."
(Prof. R Goldschmidt PhD, DSc Prof. Zoology, University of Calif. in Material Basis of Evolution Yale Univ. Press)

"The theory of the transmutation of species is a scientific mistake, untrue in its facts, unscientific in its method, and mischievous in its tendency."
(Prof. J Agassiz, of Harvard in Methods of Study in Natural History)

"Evolution is baseless and quite incredible."
(Dr Ambrose Fleming, President, British Assoc. Advancement of Science, in The Unleashing of Evolutionary Thought)

"Overwhelming strong proofs of intelligent and benevolent design lie around us ... The atheistic idea is so nonsensical that I cannot put it into words."
(Lord Kelvin, Vict. Inst., 124, p267)

It is possible (and, given the Flood, probable) that materials which give radiocarbon dates of tens of thousands of radiocarbon years could have true ages of many fewer calendar years."
(Gerald Aardsman, Ph.D., physicist and C-14 dating specialist)

"We have to admit that there is nothing in the geological records that runs contrary to the views of conservative creationists."
(Evolutionist Edmund Ambrose)

"The best physical evidence that the earth is young is the dwindling resource that evolutionists refuse to admit is dwindling ... the magnetic energy in the field of the earth's dipole magnet ... To deny that it is a dwindling resource is phoney science."
(Thomas Barnes Ph.D., physicist)

"No matter how numerous they may be, mutations do not produce any kind of evolution."
(Pierre-Paul Grasse, Evolutionist)

"The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40,000 noughts after it ... It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution ... if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence."
(Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomer, cosmologist and mathematician, Cambridge University)

"It is easy enough to make up stories, of how one form gave rise to another, and to find reasons why the stages should be favoured by natural selection. But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test."
(Luther D Sutherland, Darwin's Enigma, Master Books 1988, p89)

"Is it really credible that random processes could have constructed a reality, the smallest element of which - a functional protein or gene - is complex beyond ... anything produced by the intelligence of man?"
(Molecular biologist Michael Denton, Evolutionist: A Theory in Crisis (London: Burnett Books, 1985) p 342.)

"When I make an incision with my scalpel, I see organs of such intricacy that there simply hasn't been enough time for natural evolutionary processes to have developed them."
(C Everett Koop, former US Surgeon General)

"Modern apes ... seem to have sprung out of nowhere. They have no yesterday, no fossil record. And the true origin of modern humans ... is, if we are to be honest with ourselves, an equally mysterious matter."
(Lyall Watson, Ph.D., Evolutionist)

"Although bacteria are tiny, they display biochemical, structural and behavioural complexities that outstrip scientific description. In keeping with the current microelectronics revolution, it may make more sense to equate their size with sophistication rather than with simplicity ... Without bacteria life on earth could not exist in its present form."
(James A Shipiro, Bacteria as Multicellular Organisms, "Scientific America, Vol.258, No.6 (June 1988))

"Eighty to eighty-five percent of earth's land surface does not have even 3 geological periods appearing in 'correct' consecutive order ... it becomes an overall exercise of gargantuan special pleading and imagination for the evolutionary-uniformitarian paradigm to maintain that there ever were geologic periods."
(John Woodmorappe, geologist)

"That a mindless, purposeless, chance process such as natural selection, acting on the sequels of recombinant DNA or random mutation, most of which are injurious or fatal, could fabricate such complexity and organisation as the vertebrate eye, where each component part must carry out its own distinctive task in a harmoniously functioning optical unit, is inconceivable. The absence of transitional forms between the invertebrates retina and that of the vertebrates poses another difficulty. Here there is a great gulf fixed which remains inviolate with no seeming likelihood of ever being bridged. The total picture speaks of intelligent creative design of an infinitely high order."
(H.S.Hamilton (MD) The Retina of the Eye - An Evolutionary Road Block.)

"My attempts to demonstrate evolution by an experiment carried on for more than 40 years have completely failed."
(N.H.Nilson, famous botanist and evolutionist)

"None of five museum officials could offer a single example of a transitional series of fossilised organisms that would document the transformation of one basically different type to another."
(Luther Sunderland, science researcher)

"The entire hominid collection known today would barely cover a billiard table, but it has spawned a science because it is distinguished by two factors which inflate its apparent relevance far beyond its merits. First, the fossils hint at the ancestry of a supremely self- important animal - ourselves. Secondly, the collection is so tantalisingly incomplete, and the specimens themselves often so fragmented and inconclusive, that more can be said about what is missing than about what is present. Hence the amazing quantity of literature on the subject ever since Darwin's work inspired the notion that fossils linking modern man and extinct ancestor would provide the most convincing proof of human evolution, preconceptions have led evidence by the nose in the study of fossil man."
(John Reader, Whatever Happened to Zinjanthropus? New Scientist Vol. 89, No.12446 (March 26,1981) pp 802-805))

"The evolutionist thesis has become more stringently unthinkable than ever before."
(Wolfgang Smith Ph.D.)

"The only competing explanation for the order we all see in the biological world is the notion of Special Creation."
(Niles Eldridge, PhD., palaeontologist and evolutionist, American Museum of Natural History).

I don't have all the answers, I only have harebrained theories.


The bird.

He was probably hatched inside the mother bird, (Like you and I both hatched inside our mothers).

And at some point nature determined that the birds had a better chance of surviving if the developed outside of the bird, as opposed to inside.


See, harebrained theories.

The closest thing to a chicken without being a chicken laid a chicken egg, therefore, the egg came first. Of course this is completely unrealistic, evolution is a gradual process, you can't draw a definite line.

I do not believe that we were magically created by a supernatural entity that breathed life into clay figures so he would have a population of primates groveling at his feet.

You do not believe that we were magically evolved from a puddle of slime and after billions of years have the form we have today.

If Humans developed from monkeys/apes, and we have reminants of tails..ie.Tail bones..for example...Why haven't we discovered human fossils that show the human skeletons/fossils losing the tail over a period of time.

This is ages-old bullshit misconception which has been parroted by creationists way too much. Evolution does not split between animals that remain the same and animals that evolve. That is why you don't see fossils from crocodiles to ducks or from cats to dogs.Most mammals had tails until the point where apes created a branch without tails, humans then evolved from an ancestor which didn't have a tail in the first place.

And as for hair, are you kidding? Humans have plenty of hair, all over the place, it's just not black. As for why our hair got thinner, that has long been under discussion by evolutionists. Personally, I think it was the combination of wearing close and regulating body temperature in hot climates.

Humans are capable of evolving to God level. The Earth will likely undergo an ascension period soon, at which point, those who are ready to evolve will move into the 5th dimension, while those who are not will "remain the same."

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1154142

First of all, charles darwin never even wrote anything entitled "My Life & Letters" so I can't see how he could have written that in a book he never wrote.

As for your blatant quote mining, the real quote is:

"To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree. Yet reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a perfect and complex eye to one very imperfect and simple, each grade being useful to its possessor, can be shown to exist; if further, the eye does vary ever so slightly, and the variations be inherited, which is certainly the case; and if any variation or modification in the organ be ever useful to an animal under changing conditions of life, then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, can hardly be considered real."

You've been caught asshole.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1154142



Are you asking my view?

I believe in nature. Life!

Life happens EVERYWHERE on this rock, almost nothing can stop it out side of nature.

Even in radioactive environments like Chernobyl, nature flourishes where humans would perish.
Life can be found in the searing heat of volcanic vents to the ice of Antarctica.

Is there a consciousness that exists that has a hand in nature??
Sure, there could very well be.
Is this consciousness God?
Perhaps.
I don't know.
And I am proud to not know.


Life happens. Who are we to limit how life works.

Nature has shown time and time again that it will work in ways that we can not possibly understand.

I wish people could simply admit to the mysteries or life, instead of twisting the mystery to fit their religious views because they have some underlying fear or remorse about being an animal.

You can not provide undeniable proof of an entity breathing life into clay figures, to prove creation, anymore then I can produce a fossil of anything proving anything.

I just happen to personally find it more logically sound for life to have evolved over billions of years, then instantly by a supernatural being that only spoke to people in the far distant past and demands unwavering worship under threat of torture by fire, and then vanishes and yet still demands undying devotion.

Honestly I think God could care little for the affairs of man.

Humans are bare compared to most animals. We don't have hair that would keep us warm LIKE a dog or an APE or feathers like a bird and down that keeps them warm.

Ekimos as an example are still smoothed skinned after thousand of years in the ice and freezing weather, they didn't evolve like a polar bear or penguin for friggs sake.

And that's bollocks about the fossils. We STILL have the reminants of tails, so they say. Same as some snakes supposedly have reminants of hind legs.

Who's to say they just have them because God wanted them that way OR they just evolved like that because they want those tiny legs for reasons we don't even UNDERSTAND yet.

Humans are bare compared to most animals. We don't have hair that would keep us warm LIKE a dog or an APE or feathers like a bird and down that keeps them warm.

Ekimos as an example are still smoothed skinned after thousand of years in the ice and freezing weather, they didn't evolve like a polar bear or penguin for friggs sake.

And that's bollocks about the fossils. We STILL have the reminants of tails, so they say. Same as some snakes supposedly have reminants of hind legs.

Who's to say they just have them because God wanted them that way OR they just evolved like that because they want those tiny legs for reasons we don't even UNDERSTAND yet.

Then give me one reason why god would give snakes legs, give humans pubes, or tell us to cut the tips of our dicks off.

Exactly!!!! Who's to say they are/were legs?

Hair plays an important part to the human body. It helps things like trap heat on the head, eyebrows stop sweat leaking into the eyes, eyelashes stop micro dust entering the eyes, nostril hair stops dust from going up our hooter, pubic hair helps keep our balls warm and stops your penis shriveling up in the cold. BUT we don't have much body hair compared to OTHER mammals for our varied world climate.

Maybe God just had to tell us to do that because dirty bastards wouldn't wash behind their foreskin and it can spread infection and cause problems.

For the record, I keep it trim down below for our British climate.

No, no, no, the point you're trying to make is that god made things intelligently and they don't evolve. If that was the case, why would he give snakes the remnants of legs, give humans pubes (when we obviously wear close), and give us foreskin only to tell us to cut it off? If he made us intelligently, we wouldn't have all of this shit.
