The Bible (whose authority is its own assertion of infallibility -- despite its amazing self-cancellations and contradiction). Were it any other tome or document designating a six day creation of the whole universe by a "guy in the sky" whose "very good" creation so soon turns out so very bad that he floods almost all of it to death but then realizes he'd over-reacted .....
Think, not recite from the resected reticulum of reasonability!!!
Creation-science Creationism explains anything? "Scienctific"????

But along with my dismissive critique of CreaSci has been my concerted proclamation that neoDarwinian, defacto random selection, is not only inadequate as scientific proof, but manifestly, to me overwhelmingly obviouslhy, insufficient to account for the macro-mutational miracle of the mind of man, the potential of which is to be a cognitive analog of, not only the substantive universe .... but the field phenomena thereof ... and even the non-phenomenal (such as anti-particulates unto event horizons).
If one considers man's activities and industries and inventions and all as "animal behavior" .....?? Cumulative chance brings specie evolution to the closure of its cognition with the composition of universal dynamics???
But if mainstream evolutionary assumption is insufficient .. if creationism
is just pictorialism, surely not procedural perspicacity for anything in existence,.... then what else is there to account for the macro-mutation unto miracle that is the potential, and even so much the actuality, of that physical evolution from ape ..... man??
One of my last prior posts was to mention that something more than we now teach should, perhaps, be included in the scope of what we teach in the public schools.
I hope the above is a comprehensible, pro temp conclusion to my previous dissertations. Please, anyone, deal with this perspective as you will, but make it a part of, perhaps, a Christian evolution!!

Concerning prior posts that posed problems for perusers.
Perhaps I owe an apology -- Part I

Over the past year or more I've posted segments from my "Existential Series", the latter several concerning evolution. A couple email responses have made me wonder whether I owe anyone an apology for incomprehensible complexity. I free-associate my writing, and what comes out is the way I think. But I may be so far in (or off) the deep end that others don't, and don't want to bother to, wade through the verbiage to get what I'm saying.
One noteworthy query from a reader was just what I'm smoking!!!

If I've provided an orientation of "where I'm at" regarding existence (being born, linguistics, sexuality, evolution, etc,. via my in-depth contemplations on these generally just taken-for-granted aspects of living/being, good.
But at this point, even though I haven't completed the "Series" itself (as written), I'll take a break from the final sections.

Heretofore I've conveyed how "my cup runneth over" to the amazement and beauty and complexity (even existentially contradictory -- such as sectarian) of the human.
In "Note to a Newborn" my specific point was that the potential of the human mind is to at least "get the idea of" if not intellectually, scientifically, even interactively collaborate with an scope of existence almost universal. Think space exploration, genetic engineering, artistic representation and replication -- and think of these human (and only human).. animal behaviors?>???
Along through the series' segments I considered the astounding, exponential,differences between man and his 98% genetic-identity-relative, chimp. From the perspective of human sexuality, so significantly a matter of
recreation, not re-creation (reproduction).... to the much deeper domains of the mind of man creating even beyond re-creating his specie (for example in artistic representation and scientific interventions .... I've tried to present a perspective for others to consider.

You got the incomprehensible bit right.

Why did you post this nonsense on two different sites?

You forgot natural selection and other driving forces.

So yes, if an person was a big enough idiot to think that life got along by variation only that would be wrong.

Luckily Darwin was not as big of an idiot as the OP here.

What about the kittens? Are you gonna apologise to all the kittens?

AND WHAT ABOUT THE ONES YOU CAN'T APOLOGISE TO!!!
