: : Modern science has become a souless quest for a material truth that does not exist....bzrd

: :::::::::::::::: : How so?

In 1959, a symposium celebrating 100 yrs of Darwinism was held in Chicago. This was about the same time Darwinism and population genetics were wed to produce the neo-Darwinian synthesis. The event also followed on the heels of Stanely Miller's work with the pre-biotic soup and abiogenesis. It seemed from that point forward that science made the materialist philosophy easily the most tenable in light of these events. The materialist philosophy is that there is nothing beyond what science can understand or duplicate. Further, any competing position or philosophy is prevented ipso-facto from attaining any foothold in the realm of science. All scientific evidence is veiwed with materialist pre-conceptions. For example, the fossil evidence is considered only in a Darwinian light, this despite that one could just as easily make a case for design theory. It should be noted the over-riding theme of the fossil record is stasis. Species seem to appear out of nowhere then become extinct in virtually the same morphological state. How does this support Darwinism? There is no bio-molecular foundation for the increasing genetic complexity called for by macro-evolution. Finally, science does not have a clue how life would originate through a materialistic process. The fact they even make the attempt trivializes the event. It is time to separate empirical science from materialist philosophy......good to hear from you agian Viper:)
