Well, if you have a spare half-hour or something, why not have a go at saying why!! Actually, I've never thought of discussion here as argument, but always as discussion. Views firmly expressed, but that's what makes a discussion interesting. Arguing is trying to win. I've never been interested in winning or losing, it's the discussion that counts every time.Quote
I gave up arguing with you years ago.
thank you. I have googled him and wikipedia, amongst the list of headings, has 'dissent from darwin' which I linked on. A paragraph or two is enough to show that he has been linked with attempts to discredit the TofE in favour of Intelligent Design. Need I say more? I will, however read more about him later. But his aggressive rant on that video places him outside the solid foundation and support for the tofE.Quote
I watched the video and the scientist is
James M Tour, Rice University USA
As is always the case, it does not matter how many achievements one has had, that does not make a woo digression, speech or fringe book right or valid.Quote
His website introduces his massive long list of achievements etc apparently voted in the top 50 most influential scientists in the world.
He can be as clear as he wants to be, but it won't stand up to the scrutiny required.Unless hisopinion is backed up by experimentation etc it remains an opinion only with 'unknown' as the inevitable label given to the speculations involved.Quote
His is pretty clear that random chance is not enough. It needs mindboggling compounding hugely improbable coincidences and a plan.
well, I do actually know that!!Quote
What you have called "unknown" is what a lot of others call "God".
That sentence doesn't make enough clear sense for me to respond to.Quote
What you reject, is the human mythology and pretence about knowing the "unknown", which is called "religion".
Why did you inflict that on me then?!Quote
PS Gee he (scientist) is a raving ranter who is difficult to listen too though!
We end this exchange here then on a point of agreement.
