Evolution evaluated

Quote
Fred has landed on precisely the aspect of evolutionary theory that made me into a strong TE(p)NSBMGDaGF skeptic. What many people who have not thought seriously about the issue don't realize is that biologists are literally so stupid, and so innumerate, and so illogical, that they don't understand the problems that quantification creates for their many unfounded assumptions.

You may recall that I confused a number of evolution advocates by asking them a very simple question: what is the average rate of evolutionary mutation. The problem was not that they could not provide a precise answer, although the fact that they couldn't even work out a possible range as well as I could was troubling. The problem was that they did not understand that the question was a) entirely legitimate, b) the answer to it can theoretically be worked out, and worst of all, c) there ABSOLUTELY MUST be a precise answer to it.

What their confusion indicated to me, and what I later confirmed by analyzing undergraduate, graduate, and PhD programs, is that biologists are still essentially butterfly collectors. They are the least intelligent of the STEM field graduates and most of them have no ability whatsoever to even begin to grasp the relevant issues involved, let alone successfully address them.

Evolution is not reproducible and is therefore outside of the parameters of scientific inquiry. End of. It is a belief system. Nothing more.

From the article:

'The fossil record and abundant other evidence testify that organisms have evolved through time'


The fossil record does everything but support the theory of evolution. In fact the the lack of transitional fossils of the kind one would expect to see in 'abundance' is troubling for Darwinists. The Cambrian explosion is another embarrassment in the fossil record. And what are these other abundant examples?  Give us just 3

From the 'Scientific' American article:

'6. If humans descended from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?'

Seriously? No serious critic of evolution uses this argument. I believe they call this a red-herring

'7. Evolution cannot explain how life first appeared on Earth.
  The origin of life remains very much a mystery'

Pretty much
