We all know that evidence proves nothing;evidence only supports.
Evidence is as good as what you can make of it. The same piece of evidence used to argue for a thing, is the same piece of evidence used to argue against that thing.
We dont have to understand something to control it; so our best descriptions may be nothing more than a 'working knowledge', and not the truth.
Its interesting that you speak of the hypocrisy and ignorance of others?
You, have effectively demonstrated your unwillingness or otherwise utter failure to apply your concepts consistently in times past; you and that IANS b@stard. I wonder if lightening has struck him yet.
You would readily accept that logic is a valid means of discovering aspects of the natural world; yet when logic leads people to believe in God or an Almighty, you got issues.
Its strange how reasoning and logic only seems to work 'your' way.
What logic would lead people to vbelieve in some god myth that has no evidence of being real, or in the case of most people, a god myth that has been proven false?

there is no such logic as that.

What concept is that?
Identify that unprovable concept.
The study of a concept in itself can be a science; proof of anything is always debatable and is hence another question.

HOG, first I would like to know what you believe and why. I believe that the theory of evolution is very accurate.

Yes, evidence can cut both ways. The problem for creationists is that it is very hard if not impossible to argue that the evidence supports creationism in any way at all.

My speciality is geology. Creationists have no explanation for the fossil record. Or perhaps I should say that any explanation they try to make has been easily debunked to date.

So once again, what do you believe and why? How old do you think the Earth is? Are you a YEC or an OEC?

"Fossils are the most obvious and serious objections which can be urged against the theory of evolution"

Charles Darwin, Origin of the species.

So according to the originator of your religion , the thing YOU hang your hat on is it's most serious objection.

what a joke you are.

I think this post explains fossils best.

Quote - Evolution is simply mild adaption over a large amount of time. ALL fossils are "transitional" fossils. It amazes me that you are able to post a thread such as this, online, while denying the very mentality that made the internet possible. Sir, the irony isn't lost on me.- End Quote.

Atheistic Scientists were Humiliated As Their Junk DNA Evolution Paradigm recently Collapsed
Anti-theistic scientists, Ken Miller, Ayala, Dawkins, Collins, Falk and other junk DNA proponents made failed observations about DNA, such that their Darwinian evolution paradigm has collapsed. Not that long ago, junk DNA was being defended as an important element of the Darwinian evolution paradigm ... The question now seems to be whether Ayala, Dawkins, Collins, Falk and other junk DNA proponents will continue to defend junk DNA, whatever they call it?- Rob Crowther,PhD
Evolutionary Biologist Richard Sternberg discusses modern genomics and the collapse of evolutionists junk DNA theory.

We shouldn't diss on Ayala so badly, he advanced the concept of genetic "load" that due to mutations no species, especially humans, could survive more than 10,000 years... Hmmmm, he kinda stepped on his own belief's, or, was he hiding the truth in the data tables to get published? Seen that before. As all living organisms use the same triplicate code with a lauguage convention was an accident, created by accidents! Genetic paralellism put the the last nail in the evolutionaly coffin anyway. Thats where Denton showed that the right and left appendages is living things are comtrolled by unrelated genes. Their argument is they will find the answer someday, evolutionists always have "faith" in impossible discoveries or lots of time providing the answers or changes needed.

After working all over the earth for 30+ years in underground mining, and touching some of the largest fossil deposits in the world, what I see is a world that was created out of water with water,(see the fossilless pre-cambrian formations in the central Grand Canyon, you have to float to it, I have been there) and secondly destroyed by water leaving fossil deposits and death (unlike the pre-cam because God made the earth first without death) and then eroded by uniform means until today. The Great unnconformity proves it. Naturally sea creatures would be buried first. Reptiles sink when they drown, mammals bloat and float, so hence a progression of fossil deposition in text book fossil deposition drawings. An exception in the Lewis range in Montana where the sea life is on the top and Dinos and debris is on the bottom. The evolutionists have been trying to divise a way to flip that range for years but found it better to remove it from the text books. How about the Redwood trees in Antarctica 10ft at the butt or mega flora and fruit trees found in Siberia? This evidence points to the fact that this world was mightly different once in the past.

What a lying sack of shit.

I was trying to give an example of permutation and how it can be created by writing a script or a program. Don't be stupid. If you can't understand the analogy, that's not my problem.
If you could come up with an actually accurate analogy, then people would understand it. When you are discussing matters of science with people who have studied various fields, you had better be spot on or you will be nothing more than a pin cushion for jokes, a laughing stock. My areas are technology, chemistry, and neurology. Your analogy fails, your script is childish, and your attempt to use it to describe a chemical process is insulting to both computer technology and chemistry.

And this is where you fail. If this were correct EVERY imagined concept would be equally valid. This is not the case. The reason being the scientific method.

Yes, just like we only have a working knowledge of gravity, but even today it is not completely understood. Despite this our knowledge has enabled us to send spacecraft to other worlds.

You misunderstanding of terminology is why you fail. A two-dimensional universe is logical. We can have mathematical models of it and you can throw all the numbers you like at it and it will still be logical and internally consistent. But a two-dimensional universe is inconsistent with reality. Logic, like math, is dependent upon axioms. Axioms are arbitrary. So while logic can work it doesn't mean it's describing reality. Reality has to be tested by practical means. And if reality coflicts with your logic then your logic is simply wrong. Like heavier objects falling faster than lighter ones was thought to be logical until it was scientifically tested.

As it is, there is a logical reason why you believe in God. Mom said so. And if you were born in India you'd likely believe in Vishnu.

And that's fine if you have religious beliefs. But once you start claiming your religious beliefs are scientific then you will more often than not find that you're incorrect.

Godddit with magic is not scientific, period. And it shouldn't even take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Oh, so you're a liar.

DNA itself is not a language so what "code" are you referring to?

What is the "scientific theory" of creationism?
