You are very confusing in this post. But I think you basically agree with me. Evolution is based on faith.

"***Just answer this. Can MACROevolution be observed and repeated in a labratory?***

Like most of science it cannot be."

Most of science? I don't think 'most' of science can not be tested in a lab.

"You observe the sun, but you do not observe the working of the sun. You cannot observe nuclear fusion of heavier elements. We must infer nuclear fusion of heavier elements in a star even though we have never created a nuclear fusion experiment capable of fusing heavier elements. Nuclear fusion of carbon, for example, is entirely theoretical and unobserved."

That is right. And we are not completely sure how the sun works. That is my point.

"In the sense of the origin of the material universe, we are very close to the point of 'knowing' that the visible universe emerged from a big bang."

No you are not. In fact, many evolutionist are abandoning the big bang as well. I'll post about this soon.

"For example, you can't say that Maxwell's theory of electromagneticism is based on proof and big bang cosmology is based on faith."

Well, has Maxwell's theory been proven and repeated in a labratory? If so, I would say it is based on proof. The Big Bang can not be repeated and observed in a labratory, therefore faith is required to believe in it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think your post is a very long way of saying that you do have faith in the unobservable. There is nothing wrong with that, creation has much faith also. KC2GWX 73's
