For years they have been gravely advising their fellow Christians that science rules out belief in a historical first pair of human beings.
Random and undirected processes are clearly and obviously incapable of inventing new living things.
How evidence is interpreted is wrenched into line with the ideology. And this is what we mean by “zombie science.”
What’s the evidence that primates, rodents, and lizards crossed oceans on rafts?
Don’t accept something simply because Francis Collins, BioLogos, or for that matter Michael Behe or Discovery Institute — or anybody else — tells you to.
Giberson and Collins appeal to authority but admit the evidence is all that matters, claim that anti-Darwin literature uses “outdated” arguments when their own book uses outdated arguments for evolution, and Giberson lacks the same qualifications of those Darwin-doubting scientists whose qualifications he attacks. Why are they making these weak, non-scientific, and self-contradictory arguments?
Presto chango–evolution sounds so easy! But according to Darwin, evolution requires more than just “enough generations.” Darwin acknowledged that evolution also requires a continuous evolutionary pathway.
When most people hear “Neanderthal,” they think of a primitive caveman-like prehuman brute. What many don’t realize is that this popular view is very much a Darwinian interpretation, and it is betrayed by much evidence.
Without evidence to back up their argument, it seems that Giberson and Collins simply want us to take their evolutionary claims about the power of mutation on faith.
Karl Giberson and Francis Collins have relied upon some dangerous and historically weak arguments for evolution in their new book, The Language of Science and Faith.
