I personally believe evolution should not be taught in schools because of the immense amount of evidence suggesting that evolution is false.
Oh really? What evidence is that? Or are you just mindlessly repeating what other mindless Creationists that don’t know what evidence is (or even what evolution is) tell you?
In fact, why don’t you explain evolution to me before providing me with this evidence that it is false.
I just found out that a teacher at my old school said that church is single minded and wrong. This seems pretty ignorant of him. What evidence does he have to provide that church and creationism are wrong? Even Darwin acknowledged that there is proof discrediting evolution. “There is another and allied difficulty, which is much more serious. I allude to the manner in which species belonging to several of the main divisions of the animal kingdom suddenly appear in the lowest known fossiliferous rocks.” (Darwin, The Origin of Species, p. 348). To me this ‘appearing’ sounds more like ‘creating’. Darwin had hoped that future science would be able to account for this finding, but this did not happen. “Evolutionary biology’s deepest paradox concerns this strange discontinuity. Why haven’t new animal body plans continued to crawl out of the evolutionary cauldron during the past hundreds of millions of years? Why are the ancient body plans so stable?” (Jeffrey S. Levinton, “The Big Bang of Animal Evolution,” Scientific American, Vol. 267, November 1992, p. 84). So if evolution is the way to go then where did the fossils found in the Cambrian strata evolve from? And if you cannot provide that answer (which science has yet to do) then why on earth is evolution being taught in public schools yet creationism is deemed wrong? Because the alternative to evolution is creationism and for some reason or another evolutionists can’t be bothered to believe in God.
THERE IS NO VALID EVIDENCE DISCREDITING EVOLUTION, IF THERE WAS WE WOULDN’T BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION AS A SINGLE THING DISCREDITS THE ENTIRE THING.
As for why the animals suddenly appear in the fossil record, well this makes sense when you consider how fossils form, by replacing hard body parts with minerals which then form casts as the organic material decays away. However with basic non-hard shelled animals the process is too quick for the replacement of hard tissue by minerals. That and organisms before this point would have been quite small. As I believe there are also up to this point small casts left by organisms, but not very many and not particularly good. At any rate the fact is that even if they were magically created it wasn’t in the genesis way as obviously there aren’t in humans in the fossil record before a certain point.
And I think Jeffery S. Levinton there doesn’t
quite even come close to understanding evolutionary biology. Evolution in fact does not predict the arrival of bizarre new alien body plans, especially over the short period of time implied in that quote. The fact is all the skeletal and in fact all systems found repetitively in biology and there because they work pretty well and because a complete overhaul of structure is something so nonsensical that it shouldn’t even be contemplated. Evolution is gradual, if there’s no selection pressure that supports for a change, it will not happen. In most organisms there is no pressing need for a severe structural overhaul and there most likely never will be. Coincidently I find it hard to believe that a God would have so very little imagination in his design of vertebrates and especially mammals. I also don’t understand why he’d make the air and food tracts the same narrow tube, or why we’d have appendixes or vestigial eyelids and I especially don’t understand the recursive laryngeal nerve which in giraffes by passes the larynx by about 4 cms before going about 15 feet down the neck around an artery and back up to the larynx. All of this makes perfect sense if you simply look at how we had to evolve with out making catastrophic changes to body plans. If you make one rapid sizable change, you have to change something else to fix that problem, and then maybe you have to make another, and another and so on indefinitely. The chances of genetic mutations that support so many structural and biochemical changes in organisms without fucking it up completely is so rare that it’s not even worth considering. It would effectively be instant speciation.
AS FOR GAPS IN THE FOSSIL RECORD. THESE SHOULD BE EXPECTED FOR THE SHEER RARITY OF FOSSILS. Fossils have to be created under quite rare circumstances and soft tissue is remarkably hard to find.
Now riddle me this? If God is so omniscient and perfect, then why did he bother making organisms that just went extinct? Or why make animals that have imperfections that cannot be fixed due to severity? Or why make 99% of genetic material “junk” that doesn’t code for any protein? Why make everything effectively the same?
Honestly, everything in biology makes perfect sense when you look at it with evolution. I challenge you to find something that truly and utterly or even slightly discredits evolution.
Wow, holy crap, that was a rant. Inb4 someone complains about it not making sense. I am not going to reread all that, if you don’t understand it I encourage you to conduct research on the ideas I brought up! yay!
