Yes, you need to buy into it because you have to uphold the belief that God did it because if he didn't your whole world comes crashing round your feet. Even IF it were possible to provide you with a frame by frame acount of the evolution of an eye (everyone admits Science cannot do this - IF for no other reason that eyes/flesh decompose very quickly so you cannot get direct evidence), you still wouldn't buy into it. Yet you can
(and expect people to take you seriously) buy into an idea formulated over 10,000 years of refinement by 'Pagan' 'Philosophers' that it happened by nothing else but 'magic' - that doesn't have a shred of evidence to support it, other than you want it to be true so bad.
that over half a million years
He demonstrated it could be possible to do it this quickly, but its a fraction of the maximum time we have available for it to have happened
as he said that a bunch of changes/mistakes/mutations in the dna just happen to produce something valuable enough for each of those generations to keep the new found trait then re-wire that mistake into the dominent gene passed to its offspring and this savy knowing
STOP RIGHT THERE. No doubt now we established you are willfully lying, that you 'know' an organism doesn't 'savy knowing' what 'mistakes' to keep hold of.
what mistakes to keep and pass in what just so happens
STOP RIGHT THERE. No doubt now we established you are willfully lying, that you 'know' 'just so happens' is not random or by chance or 6 zillion to 1 odds.
to be the right direction
Tut tut. Tell me where in the Theory of Evolution that it knows what the right direction is?
to produce the end result of functioning eyes at the end of half a million years strikes me as a bit speculative and missing a tad bit of evidence to support such a claim.
No one denies it is speculation. It is Speculation based on the available facts, evidence, theory and hypothesis that is known to be observable, testable and repeatable.
As opposed to magic and witchcraft and cult membership.
How can you be serious to tell me
How can you be serious to tell me that magic, superstition and witchcraft is
that over half a million years that generation after generation of "mistakes"
Mistakes usually get selected against. Adaptations are 'mistakes' that favour the organism that increase its chances of survival. But you know this.
that certain mistakes are utilized to "evolve" something like an eye for example yet the rest of the creature just keeps replicating without any change.
BullShit. Tell me where in the theory, that the rest of the creature keeps replicating without any change. Thats CRAP and you know it.
First of all if the need
There is no such thing as need.
for eyes was so vital
There is no such thing as Vital.
for the creature in its environment for survival would not have the critters gone extinct some time far before the half a million years of mistakes
that just happen to create the custom tailored
Implies a purposeful designer. Incorrect.
product that the critter needed
There is no such thing as needed.
at that juncture of time and space half a million years later?[/b]
Minimum time 'speculated'. In reality there was much longer.
If you have to rigidly enforce a dogmatic worldview.
a bit over he top to have this kind of faith
are made each generation for half a million years and for what ever reason the critters with the right combination of cells that progress the design
process of the eye forward happen to live and pass on genes to offspring while the others are don't pass it on.
Who said others didn't pass it on? The Creationist books. OK.
It is funny how these mistakes are not one time mistakes and seem to re-flash the dna if you will
No I won't.
with the mistake as being the norm at least until the next generational update in which case it is willing to be further changed by a further mistake in this "process"....
I'll be generous, and tell you why I ultimately reject your little preschool understanding of Evolutiuon above. You do not have a clue what you are talking about.
It would be a 'wise' thing to do the following. Shut up, research, and reclaim some integrity
It is a belief. Just like a belief in anything else.
so you are saying that 'belief structures' are invalid, wrong, and ridiculous. HEY. I AGREE.
Just admit you believe in evolution.
OK, If you admit you believe in fairytales, witchcraft and magic.
