Ringer BS: Got Science? (515* d) RE: BS: Got Science? 23 Mar 11


"So, in turn, what was the question again?" I am tempted to reply, "crawl your mucilaginous way up the thread and do some reading," Steve Shaw, but that would be to reduce myself to your level, a wholly uninviting prospect.

So I'll restate my point, made initially in my post of 18 Mar 11 - 01:33 PM, in which I pointed out, in response to a post of yours implying that the theory of evolution "explains life on earth," that it did not explain the origin of life, but only its subsequent development.

Please try and avoid the red-herrings of theism/atheism and beauty-complexity in your acknowledgement that I am correct.

Lest you should introduce another red-herring, that I am somehow implying that if it wasn't evolution then it must have been the work of a god or other creator, may I state categorically that I am not. I am only saying that evolution did not originate life, but merely (may I say "merely" when I acknowledge the beauty and complexity of life? *BG*) developed it after it had been originated.
