Physics is a science.
Philosophy and metaphysics are not.(Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy.)

Why evolution is wrong
This is what I would tell an evolutionist...

Evolution says.....
Disorder moves to order
We evolve from lesser beings
Big Bang
We are animal so our morals don't matter

Why this theory is wrong
How can disorder become order if all things in the universe move toward disorder
You say from chaos comes order
2nd law of thermo dynamics states that energy goes from order to disorder.
Ice melts to liquid is an example of order to disorder
If chaos becomes order is true, then ice shouldn't melt but it does.
Things to explain:
What is order?
- order is where matter and energy are arranged neatly and are contained in a small volume relative to surrounding volume.
What is chaos?
Chaos is where matter and energy are in random locations over a large volume if not all relative volume.
So the Big Bang is saying that orderly, contained energy becomes expanding energy. Then somehow that ever expanding energy randomly goes back to order? What factor would cause that? You say gravity but all gravity is mass causing a dip in time-space. So if all the matter (mass) of the universe was contained in a point wouldn't gravity cause it to form a black hole. If you say a star collapses into a dark hole then wouldn't a denser point of mass do the same thing? This is irrelevant, for what your science says disproves other parts and theory's that are excepted by you. Since we can clearly see that matter and energy want to dissolve into more volume it makes more sense that God created everything as order. When sin entered into the world it caused things to go to disorder.

Patrick you have a total misunderstanding of the second law of thermodynamics.

And evolution says nothing about morals. Why do you think that you need a god to have morals anyway?

Then why do you fail to comprehend what is being written? Why to you write posts that make no sense. Why do you argue that English is "owned" by the English?
Do you have some sort of learning disability?

How does an *individual* have an "official" language or a "lingua franca"?(Apparently, you don't know what either term means.)
And if you actually spoke the language, you would say "My education, up to the university level, was all in the English language."
I suggest you ask for a refund on all of your English classes.

Not before the United States, it wasn't.
This is just a blind argument. The US, is just a subset of North America.

I was looking back to see if we've made any progress in almost 50,000 posts. I think not.
But, wolverine and JBH had me ROTFLMAO!
Unfortunately, when one drops out, another rises up to take its place. HTS has me saying "WHAT???"
The theory of evolution is now a religious belief?
Where do these addlepated guys (and gals) get this stuff?
But don't give up, be of stout heart and true, just remember, if what they preach is true for them, their God will get 'em in the end, and we'll have the last laugh. I'm pretty sure theirGod will not suffer ignorant fools.

Drew only accepts "Hard science" because there are too many variables in the "soft sciences" to be easily understood by people with creative thinking skills.
