Ask yourself, “Does either Evolution or Intelligent Design meet the criteria set forth by application of the scientific method?” Careful, evolutionists. This is an area in which random chancers may want to exercise caution.
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experimentation. Scientists create scientific theories from hypotheses that have been corroborated through the application of the scientific method. Then additional forms of proof are sort after. As with all forms of scientific knowledge, scientific theories are inductive in nature—that is, they seek to supply strong evidence for, but not absolute proof of, the truth of the conclusion—they aim for predictive and explanatory force.
is that to meet the requirements of scientific theory the supposition must first meet the requirements of the scientific method—which EVOLUTION, as an example, does not come close to doing! There is nothing at all observable, testable, or repeatable in the quest to theorize evolution. There is NOT even one honest example of any transitional species of which Darwin himself said should be so abundant that we’ll be tripping over them. Over the course of thousands of years of observation, there is NOT one new species. Quite the reverse is true. Species are disappearing at an alarming rate. And this barely scratches the surface of the inadequacies of evolution (random chance).
Creation, that is-INTELLIGENT DESIGN
on the other hand has many aspects that are observable, testable, and repeatable. As an example, the Judeo-Christian scriptures state emphatically that God is the giver of life and that all creatures reproduce after their own kind. In fact, that is EXACTLY what we observe. Life only comes from life and is passed from generation to generation – observable, testable, repeatable, provable. Every single living cell is a product of its living parent…not self-generated pond scum…and again, exactly what we observe. All life reproduces “after its own kind.” Again: testable, observable, repeatable, provable. Contrary to popular fables, dinosaurs (LIZARDS) do not reproduce as birds – no matter how fast they can run and leap off cliffs (as illustrated in videos). Truth is, they leap to their demise. Birds only come from birds and lizards (sorry, dinosaurs) only reproduce lizards. Observable, testable, provable.
The height of circular reasoning
is the geological column. Layers are dated by the fossils found in them and fossils are dated by the layer they are discovered in. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, in southwestern Washington state, and the years following was a God given illustration of how quickly sedimentary layers, river channels, and canyons can form. Over the course of the following years there was an unexpectedly amazing restoration of the environment.
Oh! and then there is Metamorphosis!
