TOM McAuliffe wrote recently on belief systems (May 16).
He made it clear that his is evolution.
He also wrote of the importance of being objective “when it comes to decisions that affect other sentient beings, and on behalf of the community”.
I would agree with that and would further suggest that the quality of being well informed should be fundamental to persons who make doctrinal statements in the guise of being scientific, people such as the very public, very vocal Darwinist Richard Dawkins who Tom McAuliffe seems to mimic.
In his most recent letter this person states as fact, the principles of an often quoted fantasy of Darwin, of which he wrote in a letter to a friend, the section in parenthesis are Darwin’s also “But if (and oh! What a big if!) We could conceive in some warm little pond, with all sorts of ammonia and phosphoric salts, light, heat, electricity etc, present, that a protein compound was chemically formed ready to undergo more complex changes”, from the 1887 edition of the life and letters of Charles Darwin.
This idea has been discredited by evolutionists such as SJ Gould and Fred Hoyle.
Consider your simple bacteria from Darwin’s pond, this blob of protein then had to become many proteins and nucleotides, (complex compounds), forming themselves into the necessary organs inside the host organism, and develop a genetic code to provide for every aspect of its physical existence before the bug could even reproduce itself.
This had to happen in the life span of that very first organism or, no life, no evolution!
Evolution is devoid of the scientific evidence and is in a litany of misrepresentations, fakes, and straight-out lies, it becomes more impossible as knowledge increases, as has the now discredited “big bang”, which for decades we were assured was proven mathematically.
