Evolution was guess work. We are way beyond that Kerdy and that is the problem that I see, you only need to read this thread. For me it is protein structure, for others it is DNA sequence (and this is enough in my mind), for others it is archeological evidence, for others it is tree rings, for others it is the clear pedigree of algal chloroplasts derived from cyanobacteria (pond scum in Achronos-speak), for others it is the holistic implication based on protein function, structure, amino acid and DNA sequence conservation that the eukaryotic genome (us) ultimately derived from a symbiotic relationship between bacteria and archaea.Kerdy said:???chrevbel said:But science doesn't delve too deeply into maybes.Kerdy said:Maybe they did exist and we just didn't know it.chrevbel said:How about the observation that numerous organisms exist today which didn't previously exist? Clearly, new species come from somewhere. If evolution doesn't explain this satisfactorily, then what is your alternative hypothesis?ativan said:
Evolution...It's mostly guess work, like a lot of science.
If you want to rant against Neo-Darwinists, fine, I will be there to support you. However I would like to point out that all of the evidence cited above points to evolution as a major player in our creation. To deny this results (from the perspective of a molecular biologist/structural biologist/molecular geneticist/microbiologist/biochemist/virologist, in other words me) in a dilemma that I have yet to see an answer for.
