|Natural selection seems like such a far fetched explanation for surviving through these incredibly complex situations in which intermediates would have to evolve through.|
THIS is why everyone thinks you are talking bollocks. You cannot say that "seems" is a valid argument.
Incidentally, I don't know what the evidence is for quantum mechanics, so does it therefore not exist?
Yes, Ian, I understand that "seems" is not a valid argument. I'm merely stating why I have difficulty accepting the ToE as "fact". I'm not making a scientific statement by any means.
I think your quantum mechanics question is similiar to the standard gravity comment. And, sure, you have a point, but I think there is much more research that will be done that will answer many of these questions we currently have about common descent with more accuracy. So, like I've said many times in the past, I'm not locking into the mindset of the "scientific community" without hard empirical evidence, and I'm certainly keeping an open mind in regard to other explanations.
I may be getting this wrong here, but I THINK you have misunderstood my quantum mechanics comment.
See, I don't personally know about any evidence for it. Not got a clue, physics being most definately not my thing, but I do understand there IS evidence for it, and that it wouldn't be a valid theory otherwise. However, you who seem to gloss over a lot of evidence for evolution by simply stating "I don't know, seems a bit dodgy to me" are clearly NOT listening to the people who have seen, and weighed up the evidence, and think that you have to personally view every single piece of evidence, or the theory falls flat.
In addition to this you seem to want every concievable piece of evidence, even where none exists, and since there isn't every single possible little change between animals in the fossil record, to pluck an example from the air, you think this somehow makes all the nonsense handwaving done by creationists equally valid to evolution.
Keeping an open mind does NOT mean accepting that everything is equally valid, that is called being a fence sitting pig ignorant who tends to hmm and haw like Alain De Botton, and pretend they are really so much better than the closed mided people on either side of the fence, because they've yet to understand that a massive mountain of evidence from practically every field of science is not equal to "I just can't see it".
I'm not the fastest or the baddest or the fatest.
You NEVER seem to address the fact that the grand majority of people supporting Darwinism in these on line forums and blogs are atheists. That doesn't seem to bother you guys in the least. - FtK
