Nygdan is carrying the discussion nicely, but I thought I'd pop on and give my opinion as to your 'facts', if that's alright with you ed.
1. Avail yourself of some knowledge regarding sexual selection. Class dismissed.
2. Would so called 'intelligent' design, ever create a creature so foolish as the big mouth toad? No, of course not. This species of toad is the
result of runaway adaptation. These things will try to eat anything they see, including each other. This often leads to death from choking. The
species continues down the dead end road because the frogs with the biggest mouths live longer, and breed more often, producing toads with ever-larger
As far as the predecessors to Giraffes and Elephants, there is plenty of information on their evolution for anyone interested in LOOKING.
3. I've agonized over this for years, and come to the conclusion that the only possible explanation for the creation of life is that it happened in
the vastness fo space. When you consider the earth, it's not very big, nor does it have as much energy running about. Space is the perfect vessel
for creating life, because it's huge, varied in minerals and component chemicals, bathed in high energy radiation. If abiogenesis happened anywhere,
it's likely it happened in space.
That's not to say it's impossible for life to originate on planet earth, but the odds are better in space.
4. The formulation of this question proves a complete lack of understanding of the process of natural selection. It's precisely this sort of
pseudo-scientific babble that puts people off the arguments of IDers and creationists. They don't understand what they're talking about for the
5. Explain, if you can, how the error checking process proves evolution to be a fallacy. Maybe a little understanding of viral evolution is in
6. Order exists in chaos, there are patterns in the molecules of even the most chaotic system. Chaos exists in order, there are entropic advances in
even the most orderly system and indeed, over time, entropy destroys every system. I fail to see how the 2nd law of thermodynamics applies to natural
7. Downs syndrome. Hmmmm...
8. Zero point. Hmmmm...
9. What has Mars got to do with anything? We have no idea if there's life on Mars, and just because there's life on earth doesn't mean there has
to be life on the red planet as well. If life indeed did come to earth on a meteor, then the chance of Mars being struck with the same meteor, or one
of a similar composition, is slim.
Just because there's no life on Mars, doesn't prove a thing about evolution. It's seriously grasping at straws to assume such a thing.
10. Really stretching now, huh? These are getting more and more flimsy.
I don't have a lot of respect for the tone of the article either, it's very combative and snotty. I suppose it suits the demeanor of its proponents
The very idea that religion has earned the right to comment on science is laughable, given religion's track record on such matters.
