    Natural selection is part of the theory of evolution.

    Evolution is dependent on natural selection, but natural selection is not part of the theory of evolution. They are separate but evolution pulls from natural selection.

    IMO, while Governor Huntsman is a solid candidate, I believe he has lost his opportunity to play a meaningful, even significant role in the nominating process. In part, the loss of that opportunity is self-inflicted. An inactive campaign schedule has led to a lack of visibility. Incredibly, if one looks at his calendar, one finds no events for August 12 through August 21.

    10 days without even a single event amounts to hibernation when one needs to build a national profile. A candidate who is not nationally known can ill afford to pass any days without events. Now that Governor Perry has entered the race and the race is beginning to focus on a smaller set of candidates (Romney, Bachmann, and Perry), it will be even more difficult for Governor Huntsman to gain attention.

    That is nonsensical.

    How so? Natural selection is a theory independent from evolution, evolution is a theory that pulls from natural selection. I don't see how this is nonsensical.

    It's nonsensical because natural selection is a component of the theory of evolution. It makes no sense to say that the theory of evolution depends on natural selection, but natrual selection isn't a part of the theory of evolution.

    they theory of evolution is dependent on natural selection, natural selection is not dependent on the theory of evolution. Natural selection can be true without evolution being true. They are two separate theories but evolution pulls from natural selection. Natural selection does not pull from evolution and is not dependent upon evolution to be a sound theory.

    The fact that natural selection stands on it own does not mean that it isn't a component of the theory of evolution. But this is a silly discussion about semantics.

    Nor did your response in comparing evolution to the theory of gravity, which was kind of the point.

    How is it that liberals don't think no god could have had a hand in evolution, but yet they ascribe so easily to the religious cultism of Global Warming?
