Watching SBT there has been an interesting progression of arguments with some basis in science to these later posts that are largely propaganda and lies.<quoted text>
The baby Jebus cwies when you lie. Piltdown man had nothing to do with convincing people about evolution. Since he made no sense he was never incorporated in the theory. But, yes fossils that appear the way that the theory of evolution, like that of horse descent did convince people. Most thinking people had already accepted the theory of evolution be the time DNA was discovered.
What DNA has done since is to slam home the theory of evolution. The fossil record is enough to confirm the theory of evolution. DNA does that 1,000 times over.
There is a reason that science is done the way it is done. The main reason is that it works. Creationists can't even get started with a hypothesis that describes what we see in the world of biology and paleontology from a creationist point of view. Anything that they try to come up with is quickly debunked by observable facts. These same facts do not debunk evolution. They support it.
Do you realize what a problem your side has because of this?
Now I don't know him, but if I look at the "fossil" evidence preserved in this forum, I can get some idea of this person. Now, it isn't a complete picture of a whole group, but there is other "fossils" on this forum. If I get enough of the different "fossil" evidence here and maybe in other forums, I can formulate a theory or what I observe.
No, according to SBT, you can't do that. You have to feel and know the unobservable to be able to know anything. If he can't see it, feel it, know it, understand it or observe it in any objective way it must be so and it must be real.
