DNA: The Tiny Code That's Toppling Evolution

As scientists explore a new universe葉he universe inside the cell葉hey are making startling discoveries of information systems more complex than anything ever devised by humanity's best minds. How did they get there, and what does it mean for the theory of evolution?.. Two great achievements occurred in 1953, more than half a century ago .. The first was the successful ascent of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Sir Edmund Hillary and his guide, Tenzing Norgay, reached the summit that year, an accomplishment that's still considered the ultimate feat for mountain climbers. Since then, more than a thousand mountaineers have made it to the top, and each year hundreds more attempt it ...

His-truth, just because you have an article does not mean it is reliable.

Scientists have a process called peer review. It allows them to separate the wheat from the chaff. If a scientist who knows how peer review works avoids peer review it speaks volumes. It indicates that the scientist in question knows that his ideas would not pass testing by his fellow scientists.

So was your article, or the one that it was based upon, reviewed in a respected scientific journal?

I don't think so.

First,we have to consider Schopenhauer's World of Will and Idea as an abstraction. From this premise, we ask if man is truly an entity, or merely an extension of his own ego. This inevitably leads us to the question of whether gnostic bases for understanding are pusillanimous, or a function of some sort of abstract idealism.
Whether or not the fabric of reality can in and of itself be argued, thus calling into question whether or not quantum mechanics is part of that reaity, or simply a shadow of the self being observed. So, is ID a substructure of an imagined reality?
Only one conclusion is possible. To this day, that man can eat anything.
This is a philosophical argument. ID is real in the same sense that all abstract concepts are real, in that they exist as brain states in the human cranium.

Of course, Larry, join the chorus of those who would rather denigrate someone not toeing the "everyone believes" line instead of coming up with an intelligent rebuttal.
And you libs claim that creationists (or anyone not harumphing in agreement with whatever you guys believe at the moment) don't think for themselves....what a bunch of hypocritical sheep.

Evolution has been extremely well tested? LMAO!! Let's see the "control."
And who brought up Relativity?
Yes it has been well tested. That's why evolution is accepted by the scientific community. It is rejected only by ignorant religious fundamentalists and the occasional crank.

What code? I've repeatedly asked you what it is, who made it, how it was made and how this can be tested. You haven't answered. Neither have the people at your reality-denying liars for Jesus website. The discovery of DNA is what cemented evolution as integral in the field of biology. The only people who disagree are those who believe in invisible Jews with zero evidence.

Sorry, but 'His-truth' said religion is irrelevant and we were only to discuss science, logic and reason. Kinda strange I know since he has avoided that too since page 1.
