Well...these 15 questions for us "evolutionists" really stumped me....


Not really...these questions are actually insulting my intelligence. Wonder how others feel about them?

I'm working on a video collection of my explanations for all of these for people who don't know them. Also cause i love talking and i love evolution, so it makes for a good combination.

All of these questions have been answered to some extent by the scientific community.  Either there are some excellent unproven theories with solid experimental backing (chemical origins of life), or plain out solid scientific understanding of the process.  Let's take question 8 for example, scientific american just recently published an excellent article on the origins of sexual mating.  The fossil record in this case paints a clear and elegant picture of the history.

Just as I suspected: even if every one of these questions stumped scientists, not a single one does anything to prove that God created the universe as described in the bible.

I always say: Forget the fossil record and science, the greatest pieces of evidence against Intelligent Design are it's greatest proponents.

I don't mind these types of questions. Somebody else has done all the hard work by thinking up these questions, and all we have to do is firstly follow the link they gave, then Google them, then Wikipedia them, and if you want go to the library and read a book about them.

In my mind, these types of questions, upon being answered, re-enforce concepts like Darwinism.



It quotes Popper about Darwinism. But at least Darwinism can explain how bacteria becomes immune to penicillin. It explains the change in colour of most peppered moths. And although not totally studied yet, the evolutionary effect of the Cane toad on the Argus monitor, my bet is that its population will become immune to the can toad, because there will be a few who are immune or resistant to Cane toad toxin, they will bread and the population will be restored.  


Also, what does Darwinism and God have in common? Nothing. Proving or disproving Darwinism is not relevant to proving or disproving God. Just because somebody said Darwinism is a religion doesn't mean God exists. 


This article is fantastic. I just had to laugh when they started to talk about Jesus Christ at the end of the article called 'Light in the Darkness'. 



Firstly, multi cellular life exists. We are proof of that. But the fact that we exist has nothing to do with Gods existence. It neither proves nor disproves gods existence. And by the same token, disproving the origin of multi cellular life, neither proves nor disproves Gods existence. There is no relationship between the two.


But there are people out there who upon listening to somebody disprove a theory about the origin of multi-cellular life will suddenly think to themselves: 'that is proof that God exists'.

Explaining the existence of such a mechanism without intelligent design seems to be a futile exercise. 

Debating the lack of evidence in regards to how multi-cellular life originated is great. But to then suddenly say, it happened because God said so leaves me speechless. 


I hope I can find time to go through all the points in Q7, because it's kind of interesting.

I got through half the questions, needed a sanity break, and came back to read the rest. The ignorance is just too much all at once.

Wow the one that got me was (HOW DID SEX ORIGINATE?) I think I lost some brain cells lol

Simply put: Creationists are dumb.

So I just glanced at these "points" I suppose they're called? Uhhh, easily explained to a 5 year old. Like my nephew who is 4.5 and my fiancée son who goes to church with her grandmother and he hates it and doesn't believe in "god". It's terrible.... Lol
