- Evolution is false. Out of the over 1.5 million named life forms on earth (bugs, lizards, birds, fish, mammals, etc.) how many existing named life forms can you list that are obviously in the process of becoming a higher named life form?
Test
May have to explain why a reply is off point.
Forum is ready.
Updated Announcement:
Invitations to debate the issues on this website were sent to over 1200 colleges and universities in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Montana, North Dakota, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, South Dakota, Maine, and New York, Minnesota, and Texas. In addition, over forty five thousand invitations were sent to professors who teach related subjects at New York, California, and Nevada universities. Six people have disputed four issues. Looks like a lot of silent agreement. Admin

There are many possibilities other than the two you cite--a lot of agreement is of course one; lack of courage by those who disagree is, I suppose, another. But many people, on many issues (and all sides thereof) have no desire to debate with someone they don't even know. And being insulted--called "chicken"--before they even decide whether to reply might well make the most thoughtful, most interesting of those who disagree with you decide to spend their time elsewhere, believing, possibly, that their views won't be treated fairly or cordially. I request that you reconsider the wording of your comment. I'd also be interested in what leads you to assert claims directly contrary to the widespread acceptance, among biologists and other scientists, of some variation or another of evolutionary theory.
The announcement was part fun and part challenge. The numbers are accurate. I'd like to start the debate about evolution with answers to the question in Post#1.

The premise of the question is false. Unless you can see the future, you cannot see where evolution is heading; life does not evolve into 'higher' forms but in response to the local environment.

Q: Out of the hundreds of religions on earth, how many existing religions can you list that are obviously in the process of becoming a higher religion?

A: None. Therefore, all religions were created in their present form.
Is your answer to the question in Post#1 "none" Professor Chaos? No lizards becoming birds? No monkeys becoming people, etc? This goes against what the evolutionists have told me and society for decades. There's no definite evidence for evolution. Do you have proof of evolution, Professor Chaos? The over 1.5 million named life forms that exist today are separate and distinct life forms (no in between life forms), which is proof of creation without evolution.
What are you doing about the chaos in the evolutionist community, Professor Chaos?
Technical issue: your registration system is a little buggy. I never received a confirmation email. I did, however, hit upon the idea of requesting a new password, which did get sent. I doubt most people will be that persistent.

Substantive issue: If you are going to debate the issue of evolution, don't start with a straw man. No evolutionary biologists believe that lizards will evolve into birds or that organisms evolve into "higher" life forms. You need to start out by stating what the real theoretical views are of evolutionary biologists. You see the way you are doing it is the same as saying: Astronomers believe that there is a man on the moon. Of course this is false and of course no astronomers hold this view. The same point holds for the view that organism evolve into "higher" life forms. I'm an evolutionary biologist and I believe that the latter statement is false. So, I completely agree with you regarding the straw man position you set up and that there is no man on the moon. State the actual view held by evolutionary biologists (I will leave that as an exercise for you) and problems you find, then scientist will debate you.
Evolutionists have taught public school children for decades that we all started out as a microbe and then evolved into progressively higher life forms, to become mankind. The next to the last stage is the monkey stage. Are you saying evolutionists don't believe this anymore, Professor?
