Actually I prefer to learn about evolution from the100 biologists, chemists, zoologists, physicists, anthropologists, molecular and cell biologists, bioengineers,, organic chemists, geologists, astrophysicists and other scientists with Doctorates from Cambridge, Stanford, Cornell, Yate, Rutgers, Chicago, Princeton, Purdue, Duke, Michigan, Syracuse, Temple and Berkeley who all say they are sceptical about evolution. I prefer to learn from scientist not the media propaganda so many sceptics throw out.

Wow, it sounds like you have some great resources available to you. Among these scientists, doctors, professors and the like, who are the ones from which you gather your information? Who have you spoken to? Whose papers have you read? Whose classes have you attended?

It's really quite easy to list a bunch of professions and schools. But once again your attempt to appear knowledgable is transparent. You may very well be able to name a few sceptics within the scientific community. These would be the 1% of scientists that are not convinced that evolution is accurate. The overwhelmingly vast majority of the scientific community accept evolution as virtually irrefutable. Sorry E.P. Science just doesn't have your back on this.

RE: How can you deny evolution?
To throw it out there I get most of my information from an atheist.

RE: How can you deny evolution?
Well, first off, being an atheist gives your nameless source of information zero credibility. Second, the fact that most of your information comes from one person is very telling.

RE: How can you deny evolution?
I don’t gain all my information from one source but interviews by an Atheist (so don't call the facts biased) with many scientists.

Quote:who all say they are sceptical about evolution.
And? Do they have arguments against evolution? Pointing out a few scientists who are sceptical about evolution doesn't say anything. And why do you prefer learning evolution from (pseudo?-)sceptics? I doubt you prefer learning about the holocaust from some holocaust pseudo-sceptics or deniers.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

RE: How can you deny evolution?
So, E.P., can you answer the questions in post #72 or not? Or are you just going to pretend the questions aren't there?

Ok, now you've got my rapt attention. Please, so I can learn and be enlightened, provide the names and articles you've read from these various esteemed scientists from Cambridge, Stanford, Cornell, Yale, Rutgers, Chicago, Princeton, Purdue, Duke, Michigan, Syracuse, Temple and Berkeley who all say they are skeptical about evolution so I too can learn.

As opposed to the hundreds of thousands who aren't, you mean?

Facts are propaganda now?

Which means absolutely nothing. Number one, I don't buy it for a second; and number two, even if it's true, it's irrelevant. Your information is still wrong.

RE: How can you deny evolution?
reason for denial

God created man in his image
God created the universe for man
thus man is superior to all but god

take that away and all your left with is that notion man is nothing but an insignificant dot in this universe

IMO denying evolution amounts to protecting ones own ego
