I love debates with creationists. Really love them. A good talk with creationists is the best source for good delicacies for thought. But… Often creationists use such pointless arguments that a proper debate cannot even start. I am not talking about particular ones, like “there are no intermediates” or “carbon dating is wrong”. I am […]
Evolution is a slow process. It took fish millions, if not tens of millions of years to conquer the dry land. Perhaps, that’s why evolution is met with such resistance: it is hard to accept something that you cannot see. Magical computers – they work in front of us, magical rocket ships – they fly […]
Q: Can we really trust the evolution, if no person has ever witnessed it? One of my friends has said long time ago at physics class: now you teachin’ me electrodynamics, but I still understand nothing. Yes, I can use an equation and count, but I see no electrons. I don’t see how they run, […]
Complex is not born from simple by itself. The opponents of evolution frequently use this observation to their advantage. This article is for those who think that either of these two is true: Evolution is not possible because complex organisms will never arise from simple ones unless someone sentient “helps” them, just like a new […]
Before we start, allow me to remind you that evolution is possible when two characteristics are present in a population: inheritance and variation. Find out what they are. Now let’s see how it works. Six people at the table. One of the guys picks a sheet, writes nine digits and passes it around the table. […]
One article ago I mentioned that evolution requires no proof. But since people love proof, I have decided to stop in detail on paleontological evidence.
Q: What proofs of evolution are there? I wish I could just answer in Bulgakov style: “There’s no need for any proofs”. Because it’s most true. Take every paleontological piece of evidence away, all knowledge of DNA, all observations – evolution’s still there. It’s just how our world works. Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except […]
