Good that you said its a belief system, not an evidence based view.

How do you propose to test your idea against the current view that change is random but that some change happens to prove beneficial in some environments?

How do you propose to test this idea against the current view which is based on evidence of random mutation, not to mention the fact that 99% of species that ever existed on the earth are now extinct? Did they lack the tools within themselves?

So going around in circles is evidence of purpose?

Bible also says the Earth is flat, geocentric and that donkeys and lizards talk.

It's wrong. Period.

The universe was sterile and you wander where the life came from.

This forum shows how little is understood. Instead of being on here you could read a book and have your questions answered. It's called education.

Life isn't different to any other chemical process. Molecules link up, create protein chains and so forth.

The right chemicals in the water reacting with each other, sunlight, or the rocks would develop into life. Don't get hung up on the cell, that wasn't the first life, far from it.

Also remember evolution does not have a purpose or goal in mind, only to survive to pass on the gene. If you think theres a goal you're still being held back by your religious ideas.

We've mapped the genome, we have the proof.

If you think science is anti-theistic you haven't even grasped what science means.

Scientific opinon is not a democracy. It doesn't matter if a million scientists disagree with one if that one has proof he is right.

OH, there is plenty of proof for SCP theory, if they would admit it.

It is fairly obvious that you do not know the meaning of either the words "proof" or "theory".

There is no "SCP theory" to start with. The word "theory" has a very precise definition in science. I am sure that your idea does not qualify.

SCP is the foundation for ground breaking discoveries and Syphon Pumps are among the first.

Uh-huh, right. The only syphon pumps I have heard of had nonsensical over unity claims associated with them.

I am not doing your homework for you. Now if you are referring to some sort of variation on a ram pump there is nothing new there. That technology is over one hundred years old. It can be useful, but not as a major power source.

I am talking about a patterned system that can pump itself with cycles. A system that can produce a purposeful result like sytems in nature do.

SCP theory helps us to understand nature, by repeating experiments like with the modern Syphon Pump and the general principle that cycling produces a way of problem-solving.

We've already gone over this...syphon pumps are not groundbreaking in any way, the concept is as old as the hills.

nothing new here...

it's not pumping itself with cycles. it is pumping using the massive amount of energy in flowing water.

The new Syphon Pump is a cycling system. If someone finds a natural system that does not cycle to function, then SCP theory is nulified.

No, SCP theory is nullified because it does not exist in the first place.
