Evidence that the Theory of Evolution has Nothing (Mocking Ogre)

-
In spite of all the rhetoric* from evo proponents, there is nothing to the theory of evolution. Nothing, nada, zip, zilch.

How do I know they have nothing?

It’s really very simple. Read lots of evo proponents and supporters. Read lots of their writing.

What do you not see?

Think about it for a second… as prolific writers as many of that group are, don’t you think that if they had anything that actually supported the theory of evolution, any research data, any lab experiments, anything, that they would be trumpeting it as loudly and as often as possible?

Every post, every comment one every blog, every signature would have the evidence and links to it.

And that’s the one thing you don’t see in any evo writing. None of it. Oh sure, they talk about maths and sciency sounding words and maybe hash out some philosophical implications, but they don’t have any data. None.

They don’t have any tests. They don’t have anything.

After almost two centuries, there is still nothing that any evo proponent can point to and say, “See, this data indicates blind watchmaker evolution, because this value of this experiment is x, where a value of y would indicate evolution.”

It really is as simple as that.

    Actually it has lots of things, as you finally concede when beaten with them, before retreating with "but that is also consistent with baraminology / design", you naughty creationist.

     
  • At 10:45 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Actually it has nothing as evidenced by the cowardly avoidance of the following three questions:

    1- How can we test the premise that the bacterial flagellum evolved in a population that never had one via an accumulation of genetic accidents?

    2- How can we test the premise that fish evolved into land animals via an accumulation of genetic accidents?

    3- How can we test the premise that reptiles evolved into mammals via an accumulation of genetic accidents?


    And again your ignorance of baraminology/ design is not a refutation.

    Strange that I have demonstrated it has something and you choked on it- just as cowards do.

    RichTard:

    Actually your position required multiple entities and multiple just-so genetic accidents. Not only that there isn't any evidence for gnetic accidents accumulating in such a way asto give rise to useful, functional multi-part systems. So you have nothing.

     
  • At 11:14 AM, Blogger Rich Hughes said…

    The only thing you've 'demonstrated' is that your rhetoric is as bad as your science.

    "Actually your position required multiple entities and multiple just-so genetic accidents."

    The 'entities', in this case forces and mechanisms really, we know to exist in biology and we see them at work today.There is no reason to doubt they existed in the past. So we're not adding a new entity, just using existing ones. Design adds a new entity, and fails.

    In fact it's simply that you can't see the wood for the trees. And you are standing in the middle of a forest.

    The evidence for evolution is there. You just pretend it exists.

    Nope- the entitities are multiple organisms that the theory of evolution needs to get started. As for those mechanisms Rich mentioned, well they have never been observed constructing any useful, functional multi-part system.

    There is no reason to doubt they existed in the past. So we're not adding a new entity, just using existing ones.

    No doubt they were doing the same thing we observe them doing- mostly breaking things and never constructing useful, functional multi-part systems.

    Design adds a new entity, and fails.

    Design is the requirement and your position has failed

    Occam's Razor - something you don't understand.

    Exactly!

    Dawkins said it is a totally different type of biology, meaning it changes everything.

    Not required. If we observed the designer then Occam's razor doesn't apply you moron as design is then a given.

    We infer a designer existed based on our knowledge of cause and effect relationships in accordance with uniformitarianism.

    3- That you can't answer them- and avoid answering the at all costs- pretty much sums up your position- nothing to offer-> empty, devoid of content.

     
  • At 8:19 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    Joe G, although you clearly won the debate, as even Ogre seemed to agree with your position, you reverse the argument by calling your opponents "evo proponents" and "evotards". Worse yet, you finished the reversal of Ogre's blog with the word "evolution" as what apparently you considered a reversal of ID.

    I am an evotard and my opponent is not evolution. I am an evolutionist and an IDist. Darwinists do not represent science. In fact, as your blog stated it, they avoid science desperately.

    Why go to the trouble of an official debate only to accuse your enemy of being an evo proponent? Read the name of your own debate: ID is not anti-evolution. You were correct in taking the right side, but your rhetoric says something else.

    ID has plenty of explanatory power. You are just too ignorant to understand it. Freakin' Dawkins says it changes everything.

    OTOH obviously your position doesn't have any explanatory power as evidenced by your continued cowardice.

    RichTard:

    Your position needs to answer them and can't, whereas they are irrelevant to ID. But seeing that you are an ignorant fuck you can't understand that.

    So it ain't that you don't feel obligated to try, it is that you cannot because your position is shit.

    That is not an assertion because 1- Your position has failed to produce an explanation and 2- The criteria for design has been met-> ie the design inference is based on our knowledge of cause and effect relationships in accordance with uniformitarianism.

    Of course it is enhanced- Dawkins said we would be looking at a totally different type of biology- IOW it means all the difference in the world.

  • At 5:41 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    Evolution has plenty of evidence supporting it. However, Darwinism and other accidentalist concepts are truly running on empty.

    Thats why they try so hard to combine random accident with the observations of intelligent evolution. They hope to use evidence of intelligent evolution as evidence for random mess, as Ogre bumblingly attempted.

    ID is the only theory of evolution that is fully supported by the scientific method. ID is predictable, repeatable and testable.

     
  • At 6:41 PM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Actually they (try to) say that when those accidents are sorted via natural selection we have a designer mimic.

    Yet when faced with the evidence we get promissory notes.

     
  • At 7:13 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    I realize your blog was a spoof of Ogre's blog, but what you say in it is actually very true. Darwinists never produce any evidence for their bizarre assertion that random accident causes functional order.

    They dont even understand the question, or at least they pretend not to, let alone being scientific enough to imagine a way of proving random mess over intelligence as a cause of life.

     
  • At 7:22 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    Anybody can "say" anything, but the challenge for Darwinists is to prove that there are accidents causing functional improvements.

    Selection is not a factor in this, because we are talking about what causes functional improvements, not whether or not creatures with improvements would live.

    We are discussing cause, not result. Selection is a result.

  • At 7:38 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    Rich, when challenged that random mess Darwinism as N-O-T-H-I-N-G as evidence, logic or math, you claim it has "lots of things". Can you perhaps name ...oh I dont know, dont want to overburden a Darwinist... name ONE thing?

    OM, once again you dodge a request for proof that random chaos leads to complex functionality. Instead you ask for proof it doesnt.

    Well, ID is loaded with proof and, unlike you materialists, we actually use the scientific method, not religious beliefs.

    Hmmm, how bout just for ironic justice we start with the "biologist" Darwin's own Galapagos Finch? Repeated observations show that the bird's beak will genetically change based on the weather in any given season. Hatchlings in a drought season get the genetic change needed to shape their beaks to accomodate the limted nut diet.

    The gene has been isolated and is indeed a genetic modification. The genetic editing is predictable, reliable and present in all lineages. It comes and goes as needed, when needed. This is a mutation to a gentic code of 3 billion base pairs and a 64 character alphabet, to there are literally quintillions of possible mutations.

    But we keep getting this one. Not random in the slightest. Intelligent genetics, just as we have been telling you.

    Imagine that.

    Is there any point in asking you, a Darwinist, again for any evidence to support random mess? I will accept any evidence at all of any randomness in any aspect of life whatsoever, not just evolution or genetics. Life is essentially the absence of randomness. Good luck.

    Why do you ALWAYS have to avoid supporting your position?

    The evidence that a dice is fair is found in the results given when it is tossed. A bias indicates an unfair dice, when sufficient trials have been performed.

    Your position is that the dice is biased. You should be able to point to data showing that. Yet you don't. You turn the claim around and apparently it's for me to prove the dice is fair. I never said it was not, it was you that said it was biased and as such the person making the claim has to prove it.

    Until you prove otherwise, the dice is fair.

    Ya see it is up to U to support your claims.

    Dr Spetner has writtn a book saying the deck is stacked- "Not By Chance"- for example transposons carry the code for the enzymes required for them to move- ie jump positions.

    Time for you to demonstrate that it is dice and it is fair.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_genetics

    To understand the mechanisms that cause a population to evolve, it is useful to consider what conditions are required for a population not to evolve. The Hardy-Weinberg principle states that the frequencies of alleles (variations in a gene) in a sufficiently large population will remain constant if the only forces acting on that population are the random reshuffling of alleles during the formation of the sperm or egg, and random combination of the alleles in these sex cells during fertilization.[3] Such a population is said to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium as it is not evolving.[4] Hardy Weinberg equilibrium is impossible in nature. Genetic equilibrium is an ideal state that provides a baseline to measure genetic change against.
    Allele frequencies in a population remain static across generations, provided the following conditions are at hand: random mating, no mutation (the alleles don't change), no migration or emigration (no exchange of alleles between populations), infinitely large population size, and no selective pressure for or against any traits.


    It's been done Joe. Now you have a Wikipedia account why don't you go and edit that page using your superior knowledge to show everybody where they've been going wrong all these decades.

  • At 9:29 PM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    OM, you run from science with your "dice is biased" analogy. You think that only one side has the burden of proof. Is this why you fail to produce any arguments supporting your case? Everyone must prove their hypothesis or shut up. Thats science. No default truisms. Prove it or shut up.

    If the dice were getting an even percentage of all 6 numbers then there would be no claim of bias. Unfortuntely for your case, we observe only the needed number rolled every time.

    Did you think about this before you used this analogy?

     
  • At 11:26 AM, Blogger IntelligentAnimation said…

    Rich, we dont have to guess about features forming fully functional or not. We can observe evolution taking place and see first hand.

    Here's what never happens: Formation of a tooth socket in the jaw, followed by primitive root structures, followed by pulp, then nerves, then more capillaries generations later, and finally sealing over with enamel.


    What DOES happen when teeth evolve is that we get full teeth at a time. If you get one or two, you know matching sets are always on the way in a few generations, but always as full teeth. All of the many genetic changes to form a full tooth are in place genetically before a master gene activates them.

    And you can absolutely predict matching teeth coming along later each and every time.

    Fossil evidence indicates the same happens with bones, ligaments and tendons. The entire network of interdependent parts is not expressed phenotypically until it is ready to be fully functional.

    Intelligent genetics is what we always observe. Errors are a rare exception caused by chemical or radiation contamination that are quickly corrected, with or without selection, often with the use of intelligent correcting enzymes.

    This is what we see happening.
