But to be fair no theory of evolution has never been proven fully and soundly beyond just being a theory.

People tend to forget there are multiple scientific theories on how the Earth came to be and where life comes from, not one has been proven as a cold hard fact yet...

There are also numerous theories of evolution and numerous theories of human evolution, which none, after 100+ years has been proven completely and successfully as fact!

This is why we call it them THEORIES not FACTS.

Darwin's partner and co-author on their paper of human evolution, had a falling out with Darwin over their views on it and life.
Darwin's partner believed that evolution couldn't account for everything, and he believed there was other forces at work that may or may not be guided by external agent(s).

Darwin went out of his way to have his former partner discredited at all costs and to be barred from the science conferences and media.


But even so, that doesn't disprove evolution.

Which theory of evolution are you talking about?
I never said it disproved anything, though it doesn't prove it either.


Any and all of that. Just because Darwin and his former partner disagreed about evolution hardly means that evolution was invalidated.

Yeah and?
Evidence is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to evolution (same as god).

I just so happen to also believe in God. I fancy myself a theistic evolutionist.

i don't think YEC's are stupid. Their minds just have the ability to block out facts that contradict their world view. I don't understand it, but I know some YEC's who are otherwise intelligent beings.

This thread now needs a « The Chicken & The Egg » Parody :

What came first The Chicken or the Egg ?
Why did The Chicken Cross the Road...? (To get to the other side...! [bada-ding!! !])
Why was The Road built...? (So that it could get Crossed-Over by Chickens ! [bada-ding!! !])
Why did God create Evolution ? (So that Evolution would cause the emergence of God !)
Why did Evolution create God ? (So that God would cause the emergence of Evolution !)
What was in the Beginning was it God or was it Evolution ? (Actually, you know what, I think I'm just going to be all like, blah Screw this, Aliens made both God & Evolution ! :wink: )

So in short it means yes they are stupid and prefer to remain willfully stupid for their belief in god! Better to be stupid and go to heaven than be smart and burn in hell!

I think it was Nietzsche who coined a term to refer to those general kinds of folks, "backworldsmen" - that is a good and descriptive term for people who fondly think earlier modes of living and belief were "the good ol' days."

No, ignorant. Willfully ignorant. Get the terms right.
