"A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment."
please apply this to evolution..
"we generally don't refer to the theories of physics in general"
Wrong. Acoustic theory, atomic theory, theory of relativity, string theory, quantum field theory.
wrong back at you
we common folk refer to the laws of physics of which these are many theories
you are right..i did leave out the first step..the law describes the what, the theory describes the why..actually a theory is a summary of a hypothesis or group thereof..but how is the average joe supposed to disprove theories such as evolution? where is this observation? i can still see an apple fall from a tree but show me the other..
no argument on cell theory at all but to me its a description of an entity rather than an action..
and as far as germ theory goes we can all look thru a microscope and see the cells again these are things not actions..
not to diminish this to a grade school argument but gravity is an expression of an interaction between two objects.. explain to me the HOW of evolution from ape to human
i beg to differ, respectfully, thats the normal progression. we come up with something new, we call it the theory of whatever..we turn over our research to other individuals who if they can repeat our works then it is well on its way to becoming excepted Law. all sharks are fish but not all fish are sharks kinda stuff. we generally don't refer to the theories of physics in general
easy, what flavor of Christianity??
lkeithlu, ask me yesterday for its different today...maybe its because i was introduced to the word before i heard about evolution..who the hell knows...all i know is if you apply science and logic to the argument you can come down equally on both sides and then it comes down to you...why is it still referred to as the theory of evolution and not the laws of evolution??
idk. maybe you do and can tell the rest of us..maybe being a bit of a gambler i am just betting on a heavenly afterlife because the alternative is even harder to wrap my mind around...unlike some on here i ain't afraid to say i don't know ..but i believe
i've read a lot too the last 12 or so years about new world order this and one world government that...God or no God...religion may very well be the yoke around the so called christians neck.
what was your former religion?
i sir do not have an ilk. i am my own ilk thank you very much...and you have my address, the offer still stands on a face to face.. by the way why don't you believe in God?
p.s. ooh ooh please do mine, come on it will be fun
heres your profile please tell me if i'm wrong
very small in stature(overcompensating for something)
no children(would partially explain view on abortion)
born into an upper middle class family, probably in the city
favorite color is black(bold print no less)
does not believe in God
how am i doing so far?? come on be honest
my line is one day past what your age is.."newborn babies have heartbeats"..wow theres a shocker..."and can live outside the wound"?? do you mean womb professor??
and can either live without being cared for in some way by a second party? if a doctor delivers a premature baby and leaves it laying on the table without care is that murder or just the easy123 method of child care?? maybe you should google up you a dictionary, moron
