Museum Visit Reveals a lot of Uncertainties Within Darwinism

As a former teacher of physics and chemistry, I can assure you that evolution is unscientific. For just one thing, no one can demonstrate that the human brain evolved, the salient feature of which is our ability to contemplate our existence. Contemplating one's existence is best understood as imagining what will remain after one's death.

Thomas,

That's the problem I see with most so-called experts in creationism. Just because they have credentials in one branch of science, they claim expertise in biology and other sciences or studies dealing with evolution.

Go back to contemplating your navel, while I imagine what it would be like if you weren't posting your irrelevant comments.

So evolutionary scientists are geniuses, and creation scientists are dumb. How convenient. Your superstition is so strong it gives you facts out of thin air. Must be nice.

I think we see why you are a "former" teacher. The fossil record shows that the human brain did evolve. It is our conceptual level of reasoning that it the salient feature, not merely our ability to contemplate our existence.

You are making wild assertions about things that are not only distant from your personal contact, but inherently unclear and subject to wild speculation. The fossil record's evidence of the human brain is clear as MUD. Besides, there's that pesky DNA thing, which has NEVER been observed to evolve.

The argument from ignorance is trying to use what is not known to prove you are right. It's a fallacy.

Yes, and Thomas2304 didn't commit it. He showed that evolutionists have not met their burden of proof by demonstrating something that must be shown.

You are quite incorrect. a former high school chemistry teacher a) doesn't get to decide what must be shown and b) hasn't paid attention to the evidence that shows precisely that the human brain evolved.

Dr. Ben Carson, the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, is one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world. He is also a creationist. Is it also your position that Dr. Carson has not paid attention to the evidence that the human brain evolved?

POint me to a statement by Dr Carson that suggests he doesn't believe in evolution and I will answer your question.

Never mind, I found one myself. The answer to your question is yes. That is my posiiton.

You would know more about the human brain than Dr. Carson, correct?

There's no chance that a brilliant neurosurgeon paid attention to your so-called evidence that the brain has evolved and dismissed it as unconvincing?

I went to two New York City churches on the last Sunday morning of May: First a Christian one, then the American Museum of Natural History, a towering steeple within the Church of Darwin.

My first stopping point: The Spitzer Hall of Human Origins on the lower level, a dark and crowded chapel with hairy figures created to show man's purported hominid ancestry over several million years. Some parents were catechizing their young children: "Look, those are our relatives." (As I listened, one unbelieving girl, staring at the private parts of the hirsute mannequins, laughed, "We didn't come from them."...
