Science vs the Scientific Method
Die writes in on the blog “Six Meanings of Evolution”:
Here we go again.
“Obviously no one explained to him that science means knowledge.”
Because obiously, it doesn’t. Science is the method to aquire new knowledge.
Die I believe you are confusing “Science” with the “Scientific Method.”
“Science” in the Dictionary is defined as:
1. A branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws: the mathematical sciences.
2. Systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.
Scientific Method: A method of research in which a problem is identified, relevant data are gathered, a hypothesis is formulated from these data, and the hypothesis is empirically tested.
You see, science is knowledge, that is what the word means.
What is “Evolution”
After reading some of the other comments on this blog, I have to tell you, it seems that there is a lack of intellectual honesty over the term “evolution.” Let me explain.
Any time an Evolutionist refers to “Evolution” in the broad sense, he is referring to what I will call today “big picture” evolution, which includes all six types of evolution referred to in the blog.
When the Evolutionists claim that evolution is only referring to “macro” or “micro” evolution and that “cosmology” is not part of “evolution,” they are playing a little game called bait and switch.
Of course they believe in Cosmic evolution, chemical evolution, stellar evolution, organic evolution (a biogenesis). But because there is no evidence of it and science can’t explain it, they pretend that it is not part of evolution so that they don’t have to face the fact that their theory is a desperate attempt to suppress the truth.
So come on, let’s get honest with ourselves. Let’s call evolution what it really is: It is a religious worldview that attempts to answer the basic questions of life and has no scientific backing whatsoever!
Several commenters tried to inform us that Animal Planet was just bringing mythology to life, and that they really don’t believe it.
Jay, H Bosma, Doktor and David have all tried to claim that I was making up the fact that the Animal Planet team believes that dragons were real creatures. Well, here it is; see for yourself!
Is Morality from God or Man?
Lesley writes in on this blog as well:
Lloyd Gale wrote: “If there is no such thing as ‘God,’ then there is no such thing as right or wrong.”
Why? Shouldn’t humanity as a whole or on an individual level decide what is right and wrong based on the moral obligation that we have to each other, not simply what was written in a book. In your world does right and wrong only exist because of “God” and not due to your own morals?
Lesley, was Hitler wrong for killing the Jews? You see, when we all have our own morals, no one can be “wrong.” It is just what is right for you, is right for YOU; what is right for me, is right for ME!
Lesley also writes:
Eric Kiser wrote: ”The evidence for dinosaur and man living in the same time period is overwhelming.”
Overwhelming? Hmm, I’d like to see some of this “overwhelming” evidence, Eric. Perhaps you could link us to a site or suggest a book on the topic? I, however, have only ever seen evidence to the contrary.
Well Lesley, here are a couple for you to start with! Enjoy.
