I'm just a tad tired of the nonsense. The Theory of Evolution isn't just some wild guess that a few Biology geeks on the nutball fringe "believe in" as a substitute for religion.Â Evolution is established science.Â It forms the foundation of all biology and paleontology, all medical (and cosmetics) research, all animal husbandry, and all understanding of "How Things Work" in the world of life.Â It will even, eventually, allow us to deconstruct the life closest to the beginning, and find out how it all started.Â But for now, we can't do that, so we can't back Evolution into the Origin of Life question... not yet, anyway.
This is a science investigated constantly by thousands of the best minds in the biological and biochemical sciences.Â The science of genetics, for instance, until recently an arcane specialization in biology, has suddenly become one of the centers of evolutionary science (did you know, for instance, that about eight percent of our DNA is of viral origin?).
In a previous thread, I asked you to PLEASE go learn some science, because it's too HARD to argue by educating you from the bottom up.Â To that end I recommend you cruise around Science Daily's "Evolutionary Biology" if you'd like to actually LEARN a little about the subject and its ramifications. and perhaps discover why scientist look at you as if you're missing something when you try to simply dismiss the science.Â Truth is you just look and sound silly when you do that.Â And that's why you don't get good arguments from us.Â We're just nonplussed at your approach.Â You stand in front of Ph.D.s and lesser degrees (like mine) in a half-dozen pertinent disciplines, with your Bible-born certainty and your education in anything BUT science, or nothing at all, and tell us we don't know what we're talking about.Â And you wonder why we stammer.Â It's absurd.
The basic science IS settled.Â Evolution IS... and people are part of it.Â We haven't got all the details down yet, and we may never... but we're workin' on it anyway. Â If you want to argue otherwise, you have to have some facts, some data, some UNDERSTANDING in hand.
