Science lacks a single formula to describe how life originated. Any theory worth considering must contain measurable formulas to describe what
is being studied.
This is simply not true. I don't know what you mean by "formula", but there are several different theories as to how the
first life form could have originated, and these have yielded very successful results in the labs.
Evolution cannot be measured.
Well if by that you mean in your -100 year lifespan, you cannot witness full blown evolution, you're
correct. The thing is evolution takes immense periods of times, far longer than the time that humanity has began recording history.
However even in our tiny amount of time being on this planet throughout its history, we have witnessed wolves being bred into all of the different dog
breeds. We've seen sheep get thicker and thicker wool through artificial selection, cows produce quantities of milk far greater than what they were
previously able to due to the same process. There have even been experiments which have created two seperate species that can no longer interbreed.
That's like saying because we can't see a star form and die, that means stars don't form and die. Even though humans can't live billions of years to
watch this whole process play out, we can see different stars at different stages of their lives, and put the pieces together to understand how they
form and die.
That's analogous to the study of evolution, because although we can't witness an animal change forms drastically since humans don't live millions of
years, we can still piece together the fossil record and use all of the other evidence backing evolution in order to piece together a theory as to how
life has evolved over time.
Intelligent design, however, can be measured and verified.
Don't kid yourself. I'm sorry to be so blunt about it, but this thread is a
joke. Evolution has decades worth of research and evidence in every form from fossils to lab studies to simply looking at the anatomy of creatures
around the globe, and all of this has been put together to come to the most logical explanation.
It's all of that, which has stood the test of time and remained the most widely accepted scientific theory of how all the different forms of life we
see today have came about, against your comparison of the numbers in an alphabet to the number of amino acids.
I'll tell ya what, I'll put together a thread that uses just a tiny fraction of the evidence used in that one book that I mentioned about evolution,
and even that will completely destroy any biblical quotes or whatever other garbage you can pull out of your ass to back up your fairy tale of
