"ok stu, how do you do repeatable, observable, testable scientific method on the distant past ?"

This isn't even a sentence. Were I to go into the endless detail about how multiple scientific disciplines arrive at their conclusions you'd still come up with some claptrap and ignore that wot I wrote.

So I'll save myself the bother and get on with the science.

Repeatable applies to experimentation. It does not apply to a good deal of what we might call observational evidence and evidence obtained by interpretation, reasoning and fair extrapolation. If I find a dinosaur femur in the cliff over the beach, it may be subjected to dating methods, interpretation of the context of its site, comparative anatomy and its context within the geographical area (etcetera - I'm no Stu). I may never find another specimen, so it's not "repeatable", but it is evidence and, given correct application of the scientific process to it, it's perfectly good scientific evidence.

I am not proud of my atheism. It's simply where I've got to. In fact, I have plenty of doubts, as it happens. And I do not think that people of religion are stupid. I do think that they carry certain delusions in that aspect of their lives, but I have those too (I support Liverpool, fer chrissake, and I won't hear a word said against Carly Simon). Musket's even worse as he supports Sheffield Wednesday. I haven't a clue as to what you do or don't believe unless you tell me. But I'm clear about this much: anyone who says they believe in God the Creator cannot also embrace evolution, even if they say they do, because the two are entirely incompatible. Evolution can't work with someone guiding it or starting it off. The theory, which you'll agree is a very good explanation of evolution, shows us that the process can have no goals or underlying driving force bar natural selection. There are boundless mistakes, over-production of offspring, blind endings and bad moves which do not compute with the God notion, unless you want to give God a major refit. You praised me for being forthright yet not abrasive in the other thread. Perhaps you'll give me cause to return the compliment, but it won't be as a result of this post of yours.

Steve Shaw, your pontificating on Christian belief is more than a little misplaced. It is true that there are fundamentalist Christians who meet with the sort of levels of belief that you describe but there are many more who do not. We know what the church requires of us but we do not necessarily accept it blindly.   Yeah, I know, pic-n-mix Christian blah, blah, blah.   The thing is, an awful lot of Christians draw guidance from much of the teachings of Jesus without needing the Old Testament, which is an interesting series of myth, dubious history and fable. I have no trouble accepting evolution, I have trouble with people who don't. There are those who would tell me that I am no kind of Christian, well, they can go and copulate with themselves. I define what I am, not any fundamentalist Christian, not Steve Shaw and not any number of other posters who pride themselves on their atheism. I respect your views and I don't expect you to respect mine, because you know that I am stupid, right? But the fact is my life has meaning for me. I am fascinated by science even though my understanding is limited. I love music, theatre and many other things I cannot be bothered to list. I suppose what I am saying you don't know who or what I am. You only know who you are. So please, stop pontificating about what I think or believe or don't believe, because you don't know shit.

Evolution is most decidedly not an attack on the Bible. Science can't concern itself with religion as its whole basis is incompatible with religion's predication on faith.The fact of evolution negates Genesis tangentially, not because Darwin et al. set out to attack religion. They were doing science, and there is no scientific way of attacking religion. There's reason, of course.

I just like to hold your feet to the fire, as they say. and I don't claim that we can do repeatable science on the bible, however it works a whole lot better with observable science than Darwinist notions.
raggy, Leviticus 20 deals with prohibited sexual unions. I would think that secular law against incest derived from biblical laws originally, at least in the christianized societies.

Evolution does not challenge anyone's faith.
Almost all Christians accept it.


Er, not exactly. Evolution negates the whole story of Genesis. If you believe in a creator of everything, you can't be accepting evolutionary theory. In my experience, those valiant Christians who try to embrace evolution still want God to have kick-started the process and to have some kind of oversight of it. If you don't agree that evolution has no trajectory, no end points, no goals, plenty of blind endings and no-one kicking it off, you don't accept the theory. It's a big ask and a stiff test and it requires a degree of honesty from people of religious conviction that you seldom see. It also requires a proper understanding of the theory. The prime anti-evolution mover on this forum wilfully refuses to educate himself. He has nothing serious to say and never has had.

Evolution is certainly a fact (you know me - I'd go even further but I find Snail scary). The theory that attempts to explain it is just that, a scientific attempt (meaning that the evidence used to construct the theory must be obtained by the scientific process). It's a very good one, though, because the evidence makes evolution incontrovertible. Only a fool would deny that. Whether or not evolution undermines God (at best, it makes him redundant) is of no concern to science.

"Genetic Entropy is the theory that genetic mutations are accumulating to an eventual extinction of all species. The theory was originally proposed by Joseph Muller in 1932 and named Muller's Ratchet[1], he imagined it as a means by which selection forced asexual populations to evolve sexual reproduction. The geneticist John C. Sanford has further expanded on the theory in a more realistic framework from the Biblical worldview, and published the work in a book titled Genetic Entropy & the Mystery of the Genome.[2]"

There is little or no benefit in evolutionism. I refer you to this simple article which even you may understand, Pete. Although I doubt it vet much. In case it is too much I draw your attention to the line "In modern times, the term evolution is widely used, but the terms evolutionism and evolutionist are seldom used in the scientific community to refer to the biological discipline as the term is considered both redundant and anachronistic, though it has been used by creationists in discussing the creation-evolution controversy."

After you have read and probably dismissed that maybe you can answer a similar question. What is the benefit of religion? Other than an excuse by the religious leaders to control the masses and gain themselves power and riches beyond most peoples dreams?

sorry raggy, since posting earlier I have been obligated elsewhere. you are correct that adam and eve had 3 named sons, and elsewhere it reads that they had other sons and daughters. yes the sons must have married their sisters. healthwise, that would have been no problem as genetic entrophy [think that's right] had not developed. there was no restriction on near relatives marrying until the law of moses, so I wonder whether the term " incest" with its moral overtones is applicable in the beginning of humanity. bear in mind also, that adam and eve were told to " be fruitful and multiply " . that is gen 1v 28. as v 27 is more generic , ie male and female, not only the first pair. how was the command to multiply be carried out, if the later prohibition was applicable in the beginning. as keith suggested, some suggest some other human creations, but theologically that runs into problems, since the bible teaches universal descent from, and identification with, adam.

You still haven't cited any references, pete.

Let's, though, examine that word "propaganda". In my dictionary it means:

"Information, ideas or rumours deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation etc."

So who, exactly, is spreading information, ideas or rumours about evolutionary biology? And how, exactly, do they benefit from this activity? Further, as it is now virtually impossible to untangle evolutionary biology from the rest of modern science, is modern science one gigantic (anti-religious?) conspiracy? If it is, are you seriously suggesting that governments and organisations, throughout the world, routinely spend billions of their currency units on a vast conspiracy? Who would benefit from such madness?

Raggy, why not that a few extra partners were quietly created, or that genetic diversity was implanted?

Not much of a question.
