It's a mere Theorem still but not a fact. Those who say the Theory of Evolution is a fact must not know what Theory means.
And yet the idea of God you accept without question, not a single belief preached by the JW is wrong. Like science though, millions of people debate the who, what, when, where, and why of gods.
As I accept evolution based on the evidence.
They argue over HOW it happened, not if it happened. Their is no doubt in the scientific community that evolution has occurred. The doubt is how it happened, and even then, its a very small pool that reject natural selection and random mutations. Even then, they would use scientific ob<x>jective means to prove what's in dispute to be wrong. So far evolution has survived all real scrutiny in the scientific community. A scientific theory is the highest plateau an idea can reach, and evolution is on it. If you're so confident that its absurd to believe in evolution why don't you go about asking biologists instead of atheists? Why don't you use the scientific method you claim you fully understand to disprove evolution? Some of the greatest revelations in science have come from men who just tried really hard and didn't always have formal training or an advanced degree. Surely you're up to that task and not just basically content with trolling us atheists on this matter?
Your assertion about the way science works is naive. It's about the weight of evidence that can be found to support a particular theory.
The weight of evidence for evolution is about the same as that for gravity. Or are you going to start picking and choosing which theories are deemed "scientific fact" on the basis of some other preconception.?
(Incidentally, evolution does not necessarily require all life evolved from a common ancestor, although most scientists do indeed consider that to be the most likely scenario)
The analogy is absurd. I don't need experts to know that assuming 2, +, and = have their usual meanings that 2+2=4.
Likewise, the evidence for evolution is there. You don't even need to listen to experts. In principle, you're free to go and research it yourself - but the key is - to assess to evidence in a neutral unbiased way. I'm presuming your difficulty is because you have some preconceived bias that you are unwilling to discard.
A century is a very short time. To a geologist, a period of several thousands can mean "abruptly".
In addition to the extensive fossil record, there is also plenty of DNA evidence nowadays.
Perhaps if we introduce you to fingers you can do the math yourself.
I am guessing you don't quite understand what a theory is. Science is not about accepting fact, it is about asking and testing questions until you find facts.
I have a hunch you're an answers in Genesis fan.
