Quote from: Daniel2021 on February 23, 2016, 05:27:14 PMWhat does gravity have to do with the "Scientific Theory" of evolution....?Begging The Question (Fallacy): "evolution". Again, what is the "Scientific Theory" of evolution...? Again: "Similarities", "Resemblances", "Correlations"...aren't Science.Begging The Question (Fallacy) again. SEE above: What is the "Scientific Theory" of evolution...?Sorry for repeating this. My intent is not to be obtuse but nobody has posted a response to what should be a very simple query.If I wanted to provide evidence for duccolslopoelgerts it follows logically that I need to "define" what duccolslopoelgerts are, first.Yes thanks, I know that.
Quote from: PopeyesPappy on February 23, 2016, 05:50:10 PMAs far as obtuse and stupid go I'm willing to withhold judgement until more evidence comes in. In the meantime my money is on just another fucking asshole.
QuoteAs far as what the theory of evolution is no one on this forum could possibly explain it all in a post. That would literally take volumes of books.
QuoteEvolution in a nutshell has already been explained in this thread. It is decent with modification.
QuoteEvolution is also an observed fact. It has been observed and documented many many times.
QuoteAnd please before you get into the whole micro/macro thing be prepared to explain the mechanism that stops small changes from accumulating into larger ones.
QuoteFinally, what are these holes you speak of?
Quote from: josephpalazzo on February 23, 2016, 05:55:35 PMI'm not sure if you are dense or simply ignorant, or possibly just trolling.
QuoteThe reason I gave you the example with gravity is to make you aware of what constitute "facts" and what constitute a "scientific theory",
QuoteNot only that but the theory of evolution is supported by:
QuoteBiochemistry, which is the study of the basic chemistry and processes that occur in cells, the biochemistry of all living things on Earth is incredibly similar, showing that all of Earthâ€™s organisms share a common ancestry.
Quote- Paleontology is the study of prehistoric life through fossil evidence. The fossil record (all the fossils ever found and the information gained from them) shows detailed evidence of the changes in living things through time.
Quote from: Daniel2021 on February 23, 2016, 06:23:21 PMI already know what a Scientific Theory is, thanks for your concern however.
Quote from: Daniel2021 on February 23, 2016, 06:23:21 PMAhh yes, the ad hominems.
QuoteHow about just posting the "Scientific Theory' of evolution and drop the ad hominems and theatrics?
QuoteI already know what a Scientific Theory is, thanks for your concern however.
QuoteIf the ancestry is not assumed from similarities, then there is no correlation between similarities and ancestry; ergo, to make the argument you need to make that "assumption".
QuoteIf P then Q.Q.Therefore P.The logical fallacy is that P doesn't necessarily follow from Q. 1. IF Evolution is true: Then Insert any "Darwinian Grab-Bag" Post Hoc Observations (Fossils/Homology/Similarity/Genetic Variation et al)2. We observe (Post Hoc Observation)3. Therefore, Evolution is true.
Quote from: Daniel2021 on February 23, 2016, 01:29:00 PMSo the "facts"/evidence of evolution = a gazillion fossils. Then....The "theory" of evolution explains those gazillion fossils. Are you saying the "theory" of evolution explains Permineralization - Petrification? Isn't that the process of fossilization?What is the "Scientific Theory" of evolution....?thanks
Quote from: Daniel2021 on February 23, 2016, 05:32:30 PMSo since you can't post the "Scientific Theory" of evolution....I'm obtuse, and stupid ?? I think there's some holes in your thesis.regards
Quote from: Baruch on February 23, 2016, 08:25:03 PMThis was very well answered in reply #23. Do you have a problem with what "scientific" is or what "theory" is? I suspect you don't, you just like to argue. Evidence from both macro and micro biology, substantiate the evolution hypothesis ... into a evolution theory.
