Evolution makes a whole lot of sense, but – to a large extent – so does intelligent design. Who’s right and how to prove it?
Views so far:
The nature of this situation is complex. It can be simplified by generalizing that scientists don’t want people to yield to superstition. They, very reasonably I might add, reject theism – and they take ANY non-evolutionary hypotheses of how life began on Earth to mean that the proponent is advocating “God”. This ain’t necessarily so. Many proponents of intelligent design are anti-theists. Many mainstream scientists also acknowledge the possibility of “panspermia” – but once the seeds of life get here, they insist, they grow and develop according to Darwin’s theory. PROOF of this theory IS available.
But – it must be said – not all scientists and researchers consider this proof irrefutable. For example, “micro-evolution” is a fact. We ALL know this and can observe this. We can, in fact, create modified breeds of dogs or other animals, or we can observe mutated variations of a particular species in nearby geographical locations (Darwin’s famous finches). But “macro evolution” – where an amoeba transforms into a human being – that’s a whole different matter. But science, not without good reasons, points to the evolution of the fetus as a very compelling evidence of how we go through “all the stages” of evolution. Isn’t that proof ENOUGH? For the vast majority it is. But the (growing) opposition doubts that this is enough. And they hasten to add that we’re talking about Darwin’s THEORY of evolution – not his LAW. And theories are meant to be tested!
