Do You Believe In Evolution? — Yes or No
|July 7, 2012||Posted by GilDodgen under Intelligent Design|
A blast from the past. Have you stopped beating your wife? — Yes or No. These are the kinds of tactics that Darwinists use to disqualify all dissent.
This kind of thing should put to shame all in the scientific community who make claim to objective, rational, dispassionate evaluation of evidence.
Had I been asked this question I would have responded: Of course I believe in evolution. Living things have changed over time. Only an idiot denies this. However, if “evolution” means that random accidents engineered the most sophisticated information-processing technology ever discovered, in even the simplest living cell — technology so sophisticated and functionally integrated that human engineers marvel at its elegance, error-detection algorithms and repair mechanisms, plus the information-decoding mechanisms and machinery that process that information — I would have to admit that I don’t believe in evolution.
Interviewer, after my response (should he be honest): Mr. Dodgen, I must admit that my vocabulary is limited to the point that I have no idea what you are talking about. Do you want to destroy science and impose a theocracy?
Of course, in this thought experiment, my political career would be over in an instant, which is why I have never even considered descending into the hideous cesspool of politics.
