  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    universally accepted not because it can be proven by logically coherent evidence to be true, but becuase the only aternative, special creation, is clearly incredible" Watson,1929
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think Holmes' reply was..."Evolution is elementary my dear Watson."

    Do you actually think, science has made no new discoveries since 1928?

    And you prove this by repeatedly quoting creationists?

    So why hasn´t any creationist come up with a scientific theory using the evidence used to back up the theories of evolution?

    That's why you formulate hypotheses and make deductions from them.  Those deductions become evidence you should find if the hypothesis is true.  IOW, you predict in advance the evidence you should find.

    When you find the opposite, then your hypothesis is falsified.  This is what has happened to young earth creationism.  Scientists like Buckland, Sedgwick, Woodward, and Owen in the early 1800s predicted the type of evidence they should find in biological organisms if they were specially created.  When they found the opposite, special creation was in big trouble, and young earth was falsified outright by 1830.  They admitted special creation and young earth were falsified. 

    What we have now are a group of people, for mistaken religious reasons, simply won't admit that the theory is falsified.  Invoking "more than one way to interpret" evidence is simply another way  of denial.

    No, no - you're misquoting. Watson asked Holmes, "From what school did you get your silly notion that evolution is actually true?" To which Holmes replied, "Elementary, my dear Watson."

    I guess that clinches it. We can all go home now.
