author=alancalverd link=topic=52526.msg442216#msg442216 date=1413231624]To be a scientist, you need a lot of humility because, however clever your hypothesis, the facts always win, and you rarely get to explain everything
To be an observer of science, you need a lot of patience, because it sometimes takes years or even centuries to work out something obvious like why the sky is blue or what powers the sun.
Darwin was not a priest. He was a scientist. So you can't expect his writing to reveal all the deepest secrets of the universe, unlike L Ron Hubbard, Joseph Smith, or any other charlatan you care to name. The Cambrian explosion was a long time ago, and a pretty major event that lasted a lot longer than humans have been around, let alone science. So don't hold your breath waiting for an explanation, and don't denigrate the only hope we have of ever explaining it.
So what does the "nonmaterialist theory of reality" predict?
Cheryl, alancalverd ... : I am in fact no full fan of US ID or of any other theory of nature or beyond .....I never stick to any theory of nature , knowledge , models ...or beyond, a full 100 % , so to speak , since all knowledge is hypothetical , including the scientific one,and can thus never proven to be "true ", ever .
That said : Neither of you did address the above key mentioned issues or objections raised by either my earlier posts ,or by that excerpt of Meyer here above , concerning Darwinism , the origin of life , life information ...,
Nobody is denying that there is some form of natural selection at work through mutations ....
It's just that natural selection ( Analogous to the mysterious " invisible hand " of the market lol ) cannot account for the rich diversity and complexity of life , let alone for the added biological or life information that's necessary to account for novel forms and novel body plans ....to mention just that .
Not to mention the Cambrian explosion where whole complex species appeared suddenly without preexisting simpler forms or simpler ancestors ,and where the fossil record or evidence contradicted Darwinism .Darwin himself was puzzled by that and admitted that he could find no explanation to that , and that his theory might turn out to be false ,if future scientists wouldn't be able to solve that Cambrian dilemma ,for example .Many attempts have been conducted so far to solve the Cambrian dilemma ,since Darwin, up to this date , in vain still ,as far as i can tell at least .
P.S.: Cheryl :How about the surgery you seem to have been gone through ? It did go well, i see . I am glad for you .Nice to have you back .
