Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Separating the Ideology from the Science?

Over on TSZ, a safe zone for evoTARDs, OMagain posts this bit of cluelessness:
A charge has been made that evolution seems to be a popular religion here at TSZ and that it is difficult to separate the ideology from the science.
That all depends on what you mean by "evolution". If by "evolution" you mean:
the idea that all organisms have descended from common ancestors solely through an unguided, unintelligent, purposeless, material processes such as natural selection acting on random variations or mutations; that the mechanisms of natural selection, random variation and mutation, and perhaps other similarly naturalistic mechanisms, are completely sufficient to account for the appearance of design in living organisms.
Then there isn't any science. It's all ideology. No one knows how to test that claim and because of that it remains outside of science.

The modern synthesis was supposed to be an upgrade to Darwin's idea in that it included genetics. That means all changes have to be unpacked at the genetic level. It became meaningless to call on anatomical features, for example varying complexities of vision systems, to support the above definition of evolution. Without the scientific evidence that the required transformations were accountable via genetic change you don't have a viable mechanism. And thanks to Wagner's "Arrival of the Fittest" we see that even changing the DNA sequence of a gene doesn't mean you change the protein it codes for. Mutations become a long walk in the same place.

The point being is where OMagain doesn't "see any examples of where evolution is treated like a religion at TSZ", the rest of the world is still waiting for the science.
