Ever heard of Evolutionary Medicine?



The evolutionary approach has driven important advances in our understanding of cancer, autoimmune disease, and anatomy.


Seems as though evolution has brought some pretty important advancements in medicine. That's just one, I could list more if you like.


Looks like just medicine with evolutionary tacked on it.
i guess without evolution scientists would be to dumb to consider working out WHY people get sick instead of just how they get sick

"The goal of evolutionary medicine is to understand why people get sick, not simply how they get sick."

Seriously are you proposing without evolution as a faith science wouldn't try working out why people get sick
Do you think medical scientists are that silly?

and seemingly its all based on micro evolution, so fair enough. I accept micro evolution.

What else or you hit the snakes tail already.

You know what
Kent Hovend a man I admire was released from prison.

Yes I have a bromance, akin to the one atheists have with Darwin, Dawkins and Hitchens.


I like Hovinds teachings.

I think he was set up by the secularists agenda to destroy creation science
This thread is not evolution V creation
I wont argue about e v c anymore

Here is Answers In Genesis' list of arguments to avoid. Hovind uses at least a few of these arguments.

a reply to: borntowatch There's literally tons of evidence to debunk hovinds stupidity or dishonesty. Simply search Kent hovind is an idiot on youtube, there will probably be too many videos for me to name, but any should do. Creationism Is a childish and desperate attempt to skew and mislead people into disagreeing with the science which conflicts with there beloved beliefs. Grow up, and accept you will inevitably die and be gone forever.

Hovind's arguments are so fallacious that even other Young Earth Creationists say they shouldn't be used.

Are those facts? Please show me where you got that information.

That's all fine too. You're allowed to admire whomever you choose. Is that all you're going to say on the topic though??? Because that isn't really a topic of conversation. You're just making a statement about something.

I know some of you do not agree with Hovind or OP but try to have a little respect. You just seem like ATS-holes which is supposed to be a big no no around here. Its one thing to present facts but I have seen several attacks on the OP and insinuations that they lack intelligence, are gullible, etc.


I would suggest taking a look at the posting history and threads born has participated in before jumping to the defense. This is the OP's trolling pattern and most of us just ignore it now. Others are dealing with it the first time.

As for born's claim that scientists are scared and conspiring to shut up the good ole "Dr. Dino" now that he is free, he refuses to admit that even creationists distances themselves from him. He is a fraud and does that group more harm than good.

Really? Care to elaborate, as Hovind said many christian scientists are responsible for much of the foundation of what we operate from today


Point being? The majority of christian scientists also understand and support evolutionary theory.....



evolutionists dig up bones, what else do they do.

That would be paleontologists not evolutionists



What has evolution science given us directly...nothing.
I could be wrong...evidence, dare I ask?

Genetics research.....

There is no proof of Jesus ever having existed.

There is no proof of Satan.

There is no proof of Genesis.

There is no proof of the story of Adam and Eve.

Etc. etc. etc..

It is all second hand information, hearsay, all written by mortal men (there is no proof otherwise). A book you call the bible isn't proof of anything. You simply have faith that what is in it is truth. That is very dangerous. People like Kent are very dangerous. People that follow people like Kent are very dangerous..

There is a mountain more evidence of the existence of aliens and UFOs from another planet/dimension than there is of anything in the bible. I don't need to know the personal inner workings of Kent to dispel any argument here on his faith because I already know the root of his faith.

Technically it can't be proven that the earth isn't the center of the universe. That doesn't make Kent right about any second hand stories of fantasy from a book written by men that didn't even know the earth was round. Oh god, let me guess, here it comes.. ' There is no proof that the earth is round'. LOL

to surmize .,.. you had never heard of the guy .. read a 10 second piece of text from wiki .. and beyond doubt you have hi completely sussed and hes a con artist ...
a guy youve never heard of .. never met .. never heard his voice .. or seen his face or looked into his eyes ..

this is how we all judge each other ...

based on that .. i guess itsd okay for me to judge you on the little piece of text i read from you ...
what a world of crazy people


How much did you donate to his "church"?

And in response to another post, there are lots of things I don't agree that should be paid for with my taxes but I still understand why I pay them.

Just because the criminal Hovind doesn't agree with helping kids evolve in their learning and not keeping them in the dark ages is no good reason to not pay them.

Definitely a case of the conman leading the blind.

Oh, and I'm not getting into the science vs creationism "debate".
Firstly since there's no debate.
Secondly, science falls on deaf ears especially when they're filled with beliefs.

Evolutionist and atheist have become so intolerant with christians and gang up on them on the internet.They become the very thing they rail agaisnt.Cannot have contructive arguments with them anymore.

Creationist have their opinions and evolutionist have their opinions.

If there is any intolerance it's about the insistence of a very small minority of "christians" that creationism is fact when this "fact" is baseless except for what's written in the bible.
It's not an intolerance of Christians in the slightest irrespective of how persecuted you want them to appear.
The cold, hard truth is that creationists onlyhave their opinions but "evolutionists" (aka science) have their facts.
That's the be-all and end-all of the alleged debate.

EDIT:
And just to keep the thread on track, Kent Hovind is a convicted criminal.
Hardly the example you wish to tout as a real Christian.

No the problem is that some people despite being shown thousands of pieces of evidence refuse to acknowledge them and then continue making dumb arse threads.
People are sick of the ignorance shown by those posters, I tip my hat to so many on here because they take the time to show evidence and attempt to teach us who are not scientists actual science, they continue to try despite their being no point trying because they just do not accept any evidence.
Religion has a lot to answer for.

Of course he's a conman. If you listen to the recordings of his phone calls from jail it's clear.

"They're not employees, by the definition of the term. They're not earning wages, by the definition of the term."
www.youtube.com... 01:20


The saddest one is his wife...
"I just don't have a hope that it will be different in our marriage when you get out because I'm just hearing things that are all the same ya know"
To which he responds in the most heartfelt...
"Huh, maybe I need to change. Or maybe you need to change and accept it"
www.youtube.com... 06:20

This guy is just a car salesman who started to believe his own BS and it finally caught up with him.
Regardless of his spiritual beliefs the fact remains that he is a money hungry con artist who refused to render to Caesar.

And just for a laugh I may as well link to the other recordings where he discusses moving around the various trusts, bank accounts, properties and vehicles.

www.youtube.com...

www.youtube.com...

Anyway, He's served his time now and all we can do is pray he used that time to read more than 1 book.

Possibly the most hated christian in the US because he teaches what people hate, the truth

if you want to be confronted by what evolutionists hate, if you want to hear the alternative to evolution and why creation is so widely accepted in the church
If you want evidence for creation, real evidence then try search links to his teachings on creation.

i suspect he will be jailed or killed, the world and evolutionists hate him so much.


Its funny, murderers get less than he got, drug sellers and serial criminals, he just taught what the world hates, the truth. His trial and sentence was justified because of what he taught, the truth.

So let the hate pour in to this thread, predictable I know but worth it.

Just a side note to christians, this world hates the truth, Hovind suffered for it.

God didnt promise christians health and wealth, He promised us trial and suffering


www.youtube.com...


Well...lets just hope he learned his lesson on taxes.

Either way....who cares if he's free? That would be like me caring if an evolutionary scientist was in jail....big whoop.

The people that believe him will believe him....as long as they are not trying to force it on me or my family then I am all good.

The worst thing about ANYONE that preaches "truth" is that they are preaching their truth. I have never understood why they are not OK with must knowing the truth themselves and shutting their holes around others.

Sure, if people seek you out and want to drink the kool aide youre serving then go for it. When you hurt those people because of your actions then I truly hope responsibility is owned.

There is inherent danger in teaching people "truths" than can only be measured by faith alone. While faith, in general, is not a bad thing, blind faith is. It is human nature to question everything....it is how we learn and grow. If you quit learning or growing because there is nothing to question, because of faith, then you have lost all respect for yourself.
