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

Me: "Why do you think that?"

Sam: Well, he has a good point. Macroevolution can not be scientifically proven.

I did not say that it could be proven. I simply asked him of his thoughts about the subject. I am sorry for the confusion.

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

Me: "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.

I said nothing of my beliefs. I made no statement. I am just trying to get Kenny into the habbit of basing his statements on reason, and stating those reasons on which he bases his statements. I am sorry for the confusion.

Warm Regards,

Phillip Martin
