Kenny(or Scott):"Macro-evolution is the theory that is not provable."

You: "Why do you think that?"

Well, he has a good point. Macroevolution can not be scientifically proven. Here is why:

"1. OBSERVATION -steps of evolution have never been observed (Stebbins )

In the fossil recordwe view our data as so bad that we never see the very process we profess to study.(Gould )

2. EXPERIMENTATION -The processes would exceed the lifetime of any

human experimenter (Dobzhansky )

3. REPRODUCTION impossible to reproduce in the laboratory. (Dobshansky )

4. FALSIFICATION -cannot be refuted thus outside empirical science. (Ehrlich )"

This is from this site: http://www.creationevidence.org/scientific_evid/problems_macro/prob_macro.html

His point is that, through the scientific method, evolution is unprovable. So is creation.

Kenny: "Micro often gets confused and mixed in with macro in order to try and prove macro-evolutionary changes."

You: "What makes you think that?"

This is also true (although he makes it sound like it happens on purpose, I think it is an accident). MICROevolution and MACROevolution are completely different. It is a shame they both have evolution in them. MICROevolution is a fact. Small adaptations which benefit the organism is proven, and not evidence against creation. However, MACROevolution is (and as I showed, can not be) not proven, and no one knows exactally how MICRO and MACRO work toghether.
