    Re: Do you reject evolution?

    The very basis of evolution is chance. It is easy to think of a giraffe growing a longer neck because it is trying to reach higher in the tree for leafs but it doesnt, it just happens that baby giraffes that completely by chance have a slightly longer neck have a slightly better chance for survival...and over millions of years...

    You lose. Now, show me your proof, sinec I provided proof of mine, otherwise you're dismissed.

    Then it should be easy to for you to provide proof countering what I said. So far all you've done is proivide NOTHING.

    Gene mutation (the driving mechanism of evolution) is totally random. Not the whole thing. After the mutation takes place, those beneficial in a particular environment are kept - that's not random. But the driving mechanism is 100% random.

    So you can prove NONE of it is by design?

    It appears random, but it can be by design. You cannot prove otherwise.

    That's probably the best explanation I've heard for how macro can work. But so many things have to work I mean... like fish coming out of water, what possess them to come out of the water? How in the world does one be able to randomly develop the ability to breathe oxygen? It's not like there are humans being born today with the ability to breathe underwater... not that I know anyways.

    So now you do accept that evolution holds the driving mechanism to be totally random?


    1. Gene mutation - 100% random.
    2. Adaption - a function of the environment, not the organism.

    That's it. There's nothing more.

    Actually I was just talking about the atheistic scientific view. I am Christian and believe evolution is how God did it. If you have ever had a philosophy 101 class you quit using the word prove, unless you are a mathmatician.

    No, I hold it APPEARS to be random, however, it COULD be by design as well.

    I only use the words prove when others use their description definitively as fact.
