Evolution is Unfalsifiable?

Falsifiability is very important in science; scientific theories and hypotheses can not be scientific unless they are falsifiable. When creationist finally learn this they attempt to use it to discredit the theory of evolution.



Before I tear apart the argument I should explain what falsification is and its relevance in science. If something is unfalsifiable it can not be shown to be false, if it is falsifiable is can be shown to be false. Science does not prove theories and… Continue

the mistory channel

I have been meaning to blog about this topic for a long time now, so it's good that I get this off my chest. The History Channel isn't a bad channel, by any means, as far as TV channels go. It often has some very interesting, educational programs on it. However, I do have a beef with it.



The History Channel will often give quite a bit of credence to nonsense. Spiritual nonsense, that is. It will broadcast the opinions of any UFO-ologist, ghost-believing "medium", or even a… Continue

Evolution is a fact: followup

I really need to stop writing responses to responses on my blog that are longer than my original blog post. I still don't know precisely what to do with such verbiage. What's the Internet conventional standard model?

Anyway, we now rejoin said discussion already in progress...

everything in moderation…

There’s a bizarre symmetry when believers and unbelievers debate the existence and influence of the supernatural on our temporal world. Both sides offer an answer, one side using an ancient book and the other deferring to science. But as flawed as a book of uncertain origins and a tumultuous history may be as a guide, using the word of a PhD to confirm that science knows something for sure isn’t always the right way to go either. Atheism and theism are fundamentally different and when… Continue

intelligent designer wanted, apply within

For just a moment, let’s run with the idea that life as we know it was designed by some higher intelligence which put together the basic chemistry for life in an organized and stable form at some time in the ancient past. Would it still have to comply with the laws of nature? How does one prove it in a scientific way? And how does the existence of countless other worlds make it incalculably tougher to prove that there's only one designer in the universe?

is evolution a repeatable science?

An occasionally used creationist tactic is declaring that evolution isn’t a scientific theory but a circular argument preached with the zeal of a religion. Evolution, they say, isn’t repeatable under laboratory conditions and if it’s not repeatable, it’s not science. Can we put evolutionary mechanisms to the test and show exactly how we can reproduce them in a lab?

Turkish creationist offering trillions to prove that transitional fossils are real is crazier than the media reports...

A Turkish creationist's stunt contest offering 7.5 trillion lira or $4.6 trillion U.S. is still open and will be for a very long time. But can you expect anything else from someone who thinks that evolution is a Zionist/Freemason conspiracy to enslave his countrymen?
