Elizabeth Liddle- Still Overselling (Lying about) Evolutionism
Lizzie Liddle is back and repeating her same unsupported tripe that she spewed months earlier. Different day, same shit:
And second, it’s important to be clear what you are asking for evidence for – there is a vast amount of fossil and genetic evidence to support the idea that all living things are descended from a population of far simpler ancestors.And yet there are geneticists who disagree that there is vast amount of genetic evidence to support idea that all living things are descended from a population of far simpler ancestors. So wat is that alleged evidence Lizzie speaks of? She doesn't say but most likely it is the similarities observed throughout the diversity of life. The same similarities that are evidence for a common design.
Not only that, neither the fossil nor gentic evidence she points to tells us about the mechanism. IOW evidence for the idea that all living things are descended from a population of far simpler ancestors is NOT evidence for Darwinism nor the modern synthesis.
Therea’s also a vast amount of genetic, observational (lab and field) and computational evidence that once you have a population of self-replicating critters, that population evolves to fit its environment, and, if that environment is rich enough, diversify into different lineages with different adaptation. Again, this has been directly observed, and that it happened over deep time can also be inferred from the fossil and genetic evidence.Not only is she overselling, but she is also equivocating. "Evolved" how, Liz? By accident or by design? What is your methodology for making the determination?
1- There isn't any computational evidence that demonstrates blind and undirected processes can do anything. AVIDA proves that when given realistic parameters those "critters" deteriorate. So stuff it already. And when someone designs a program to produce something, and it does, it did so BY DESIGN, duh. Evolutionary and genetic algorithms are evidence for Intelligent Design Evolution
2- There isn't any genetic evidence that supports the observable differences- For example similar genes producing similar proteins that perform similar functions do not explain the DIFFERENCES between chimps and humans.
3- The DNA test that would show that I am related to my father and mother would say that we are not related to chimps.
And later on Fat Joe Felsenstein chimes in:
A similar thing happens when they drag us off to discussing the Origin Of Life when we are busy pulverizing their arguments against evolution.LoL! Joe, you haven't "pulverized" anything but your strawmen. You couldn't support evolutionism if your life depended on it.
And the origin of life matters because blind watchmaker evolution is only relevant if blind watchmaker processes created life. If living organisms were designed, ie the OoL was a design event, then the inference would be they were designed to evolve and evolved by design.
Go have another donut, Joe.
