This is what I want to respond to, the title and possible intent,
not necessarily the content, which seems secondary:
"A nail in the evolution coffin"
Some people think that 'evolution' is an attack on God;
now I can't imagine why anyone would think that. As
a result, all these people 'attack evolution'. That really
makes me shake my head. Some of the brightest minds
in human history were deists; which means the belief
that God made the universe, then set it ticking /evolving,
among other facets of that belief system.
A related concept that intelligent designers use is,
'irreducible complexity'. They are in effect saying
that their God is too weak to create a system which
can evolve complex systems, and that He has to
interfere with his own design to get it to work at
all. This really makes me shake my head.
Some folks like to attack dinosaur bones..in fact
a common saying about them, is that "God created
dinosaur bones and planted them in the Earth,
in order to test men's faith". Well no God that
I might worship would be that deceitful.. That
really makes me shake my head.
Now the point here is not whether God exists
or not.. but the ARGUMENTS levied against
science by some of God's worshippers really
make me shake my head.. makes me wonder
what's going on, or not going on in those
worshippers heads, and why they wish to
create a concept about God that makes
God look like a feeble old fool. I just
don't get it.
(I'm not saying anything about the OP..
probably just wanted to stir the pot and
get a good conversation going.. I've
been known to do that once or twice).
