I recently watched the National Geographic "Was Darwin wrong?" and found it to be very convincing. One would think that the debate between evolutionary "theory" and "fact" should be over. I realize there is a lot of information that can not be disseminated in a 2 hour program but enough to get the mental ball rolling. I then googled Was Darwin wrong and there was a plethora on creationists attacking the conclusions but a dearth of scientific support for the show. So what gives? We need, at the very least, to get more vocal about evolutionary science maybe even to the point of insisting the popular media stop it's comparison on creation to science. I think there are enough like to start in the kind of campaign the creationists use, letter writing, boycotts, etc. So let's hear it.
I skimmed through the National Geographic article written by David Quammen. I can't see where he presents any evidence against evolution, only theist arguments which are basically unsupported and biased ramblings designed to prop up the preferred theistic primitive writings. Possibly there is more in the documentary?
In any case, you can't go past Richard Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth" for an in-depth discussion of the scientific evidence for evolution by natural selection.
It really isn't the theory of evolution, but rather, the evolutionary theories of the processes of evolution. Evolution is a defined, measureable process - much like the process of metabolism. There are, however, theories on the nature of specific mechanisms in both evolution and metabolism.
I have no problem with calling evolution a fact.
