"The point is that there needs FIRST be a recognition of the need for an "outside" designer."
Nope, only ID has this requirement, Evolution deals with what can be observed in the real world it does not concern itself with the question of who.
As to the question of where the aliens came from, the very same physical processes that lead to the emergence of life on Earth may work on other planets, unfortunately we'll need to wait a bit longer for those observations to be possible.
"Regarding the origin of life - again, the supporting argument is full of "can occur" "might occur" "could occur" - again suppositions, but no factual evidence."
This is the stuff of Science, question and experimentation leading to a refinement of the questions and experimentations. This process can be very disconcerting for those who need the illusion of something concrete to support their beliefs.
"I repeat - THIS is not the forum for this. I only responded to your dismissive post about Rick Santorum and his beliefs."
While you may consider the original post dismissive, it was actually illustrative of the rightward track of the GOP electorate in the last two elections. The only two GOP Primary candidates that expressed support for the Theory of Evolution were Huntsman and Romney, and judging by the comments in this discussion neither of them are conservative enough to suit the tastes of many.
Intelligent Design is simply warmed over Creationism trying to get a foothold in public schools, and the GOP hasn't made a decision to cut loose its religious conservatives. At some point the GOP will need to decide whether it wants to be a viable political party or chase its conservative tail into oblivion.
I doubt that the GOP will chase its tail into oblivion just like I doubted my friends who after Bush's reelection bemoaned that the right had created such conditions that we wouldn't have a Democrat President for decades. Eventually, things shift.

So refreshing and somewhat joyful to see the same sour grapes die in the wool republicans on this forum spitting out their venom. Of course they have to accept it that they have little or no say in OUR government for the next 4 years. Maybe some of them will leave OUR country or overdose, either way makes no difference to me, they got it coming!
Didn't they all promise to go to Canada if Obama won? I wish they would do what they said they would. You know how Republicans always lie.

I promise you I never said I would do such. Canada is for draft dodgers like Bill Clinton. He should go back and take Obama with him.

Projecting again I see.

Dispelling the lies and myths Right Wingers spew forth from their frothy lips whenever they lift their faces from the government trough is hardly taxing.

In fact it's disappointingly easy.

Thanks to the Internet, all one has to do is insert a few words Ina search engine, and the truth emerges from primary sources without the need to break a sweat.

That's one reason it's so amusing to read Right Wing Wackos posts completely contrary to known, accepted, and undisputed facts.

I find you disappointingly boring and really don't care what your views are or your opinion of me. I've worked my ass off, without being a tax dodger, without loopholes. So NOTHING you say to me, bothers me, ABSOLUTELY nothing. I know ALL about work ethic, so don't preach to me. You've done enough of that ... about 3-4 days worth, just recently. Your "black labrador" needs a friend, I don't.

Nope. I believe that rule changed in the late 90s.
If memory serves correct, it (the capital gains exclusion) was available to those 55 and over and it was a lower amount. If you were under 55 and purchased a more expensive home, you could "delay" the capital gains impact.
The $250K/$500K exclusion applies to all, subject to certain rules.
I stand corrected. thanks.
This means IO raises his batting average to .002 and may get in a game before the all-star break.

The word theory, in the context of science, does not imply uncertainty. It means "a coherent group of general propositions used as principles of explanation for a class of phenomena" (Barnhart 1948). In the case of the theory of evolution, the following are some of the phenomena involved.
All are facts:
Life appeared on earth more than two billion years ago;
Life forms have changed and diversified over life's history;
Species are related via common descent from one or a few common ancestors;
Natural selection is a significant factor affecting how species change.
Many other facts are explained by the theory of evolution as well.
The theory of evolution has proved itself in practice. It has useful applications in epidemiology, pest control, drug discovery, and other areas (Bull and Wichman 2001; Eisen and Wu 2002; Searls 2003).
Besides the theory, there is the fact of evolution, the observation that life has changed greatly over time. The fact of evolution was recognized even before Darwin's theory. The theory of evolution explains the fact.
If "only a theory" were a real objection, creationists would also be issuing disclaimers complaining about the theory of gravity, atomic theory, the germ theory of disease, and the theory of limits (on which calculus is based). The theory of evolution is no less valid than any of these. Even the theory of gravity still receives serious challenges (Milgrom 2002). Yet the phenomenon of gravity, like evolution, is still a fact.

http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/evolution-fac...
When non-biologists talk about biological evolution they often confuse two different aspects of the definition. On the one hand there is the question of whether or not modern organisms have evolved from older ancestral organisms or whether modern species are continuing to change over time. On the other hand there are questions about the mechanism of the observed changes... how did evolution occur? Biologists consider the existence of biological evolution to be a fact. It can be demonstrated today and the historical evidence for its occurrence in the past is overwhelming. However, biologists readily admit that they are less certain of the exact mechanism of evolution; there are several theories of the mechanism of evolution....

I wish that evolution did deal with only what could be observed in the real world - the whole theory would be in the junkpile because it cannot be observed.

"does not concern itself with the question of who" - no, but it most certainly does try and deal with the question of what - and it has no answers. The scientists who created simple amino acids in the lab in the 50's thought they had finally answered the question, but they were never able to get beyond those simple amino acids. When later research indicated their approximation of Earth's early atmosphere was wrong and they tried to replicate their results with the new information, they couldn't even get to simple amino acids. And even if they had, what would it really prove?- congratulations to the intelligent designers.

"This process can be very disconcerting for those who need the illusion of something concrete to support their beliefs." I couldn't agree with you more - and the best example is the stampede by atheists to embrace Darwin's theory.
Are you suggesting that direct observation of an event is required before conclusions can be drawn? I'm sure that criminal investigators would find this a flawed premise.

Failures in scientific experiments do not negate the scientific method, they simply show a path of reasoning that fails. As I mentioned previously, the very essence of Science is the testing of theory and refinement of theory from the results of testing. The example you have provided is an excellent example of this very process.

Do you feel that the Scientific Method is a valid method to draw conclusions about the real world?

If the identity of the Designer is not relevant, why do you feel it relevant that atheists accept Evolution.

Must be why I phrased it as a choice...
