So, if I understand Dr. Tesla's last attempt, we have gotten to the point where the only IC system is the DNA? Which of course, is the basics of genetics
, a field that would not even exist if not for the TOE?
Dr Tesla, you are a slippery as an eel. We have pointed out that every biological organism is made up of simpler parts, each stage complete and functional or it could not survive. Adaptation and flexibility make for better survival, so we would expect to see signs of adaptation, like fins becoming feet and then maybe fins again. Whales have foot bones that they don't need, suggesting that whales evolved from large land mammals with feet, something like a hippo. But you say that the vestigial foot bones in whales are not real evidence because....I am not sure. Scientists were looking at fossils of extinct animals that could be the ancestor of both hippos and whales. You don't agree with fossils, I suppose. But you do agree with DNA. Well, now you are in a bind, because we have DNA evidence that whales and hippos probably did evolve from an earlier common ancestor. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/03/090318153803.htm
Now I know what you are planning to do with this brief article, if you even bother to read it. You will say that the scientists disagree with each other, and that means they don't know what they are talking about. They say careful things like "may" and "probably" meaning they don't have 100% certainty, so they are wrong. You have done this before. You will look for any sign that there is doubt or controversy between the scientists, to show that they don't know what they are talking about and are just making sh!t up. If they are not 100% sure, they must be 100% wrong. Because they are afraid of god.
But here's the thing, Dr. Tesla. You seem to think that science is a big fan cub where everyone rallies around to protect Darwin or Newton or someone because we all like them so much. (Don't do any experiments that might show that Darwin was wrong! Bad scientist!) However, that is the opposite of how science works
. Science is not about everyone agreeing blindly with someone famous or smart. Science is about testing stuff to see if it seems
to be true or not. And tests only suggest
that you are right. In science you don't get 100% proof of anything. Ever.
Darwin's friends and colleagues took his ideas about evolution apart. They raised questions that showed where his ideas might be wrong. And many of those questions led to other very important discoveries, like DNA. Other evolutionary scientists have been harder on the TOE than anyone. No scientist reads the Origin of Species
and memorizes passages.
Unquestioning acceptance of authority is religion, not science.
Science is about what seems to be true, based on observations, tests, and evidence
. Notice I did not say proof. With science you may never get 100% final proof of anything. Science is always contingent on what someone else might discover tomorrow. Evolutionary theory seems to be true so far. We have hundreds of applications and thousands of pieces of evidence in support of the theory. But it could be overturned. After 150 years it is unlikely, but it could happen.
If you want to challenge an existing scientific theory, you have to show your work
. That means you have to have something testable. You have to make up a test, experiment, procedure. And you have to run the test. Then other people look at your stuff and try to show where you went wrong. This is part of the process of doing science. Your friends are supposed to attack you when you present your findings-- science is not a feel-good party, support group or private club. The ID/IC people have not shown their work.
