|Two things struck me about that page. First, it never actually gives a clear explanation of what the theory of evolution consists of.|
Secondly, it is carefully phrased to try to avoid actually lying.
Well, now I know where afdave gets at least some of his arguments and quote-mines. As for lies, how about this:
|The concept of naturalistic evolution differs from the concept of Theistic Evolution in that it states God does not guide the posited process of macroevolution.|
or this misrepresentation of Popper's position based on personal suspicion:
|Popper himself has modified his position somewhat; but, disclaimers aside, I suspect that even now he does not really believe that Darwinism in its modern form is genuinely falsifiable.|
The section on the fossil record consists ENTIRELY of out of context quotes and begins and ends as follows:
|Creationists can cite quotations which assert that no solid fossil evidence for the theory of evolution position exists: <snip long list of quotemines followed by a link to more "Fossil record quotes">|
Also, Walt Brown as a genetics expert.
Sarfati as an expert on all sorts of things.
Scientific legitimacy based on polls.
Prominent mention of Meyer's peer-reviewed paper (and Sternberg's martyrdom.)
They cite Jerry Bergman!
And they give numerous examples in which science was wrong and the bible was right, like this one:
| For example, until the 1970s the scientific consensus on how lions killed their prey was in error and the Bible turned out to be right in this matter|
And, uh oh! the article ends with pictures of Hitler AND Stalin!
Looks like somebody put a lot of effort into this. Sad.
