Creationists / Intelligent Design understand Evolution?

Like this post
Creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design are often critical of the theory of evolution. But their criticism leaves their opponents with the feeling that they don't actually understand evolution.

Question for Creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design: can you explain what is meant by evolution?

Evolution means we got here from an ancient pool of slime
and everything's an accident cuz is isn't a design
and nothing we could ever do could ever be a crime
cus morality is meaningless if our existence ain't divine

Evolution says a hurricane could hit a pile of logs
and purely via accident rearrange them into frogs
Frogs that croak and jump around
and knowingly eat flies
That's why I say evolution
is a great big pile of lies

Everyone who has a brain knows God created man
and it wasn't just an accident cus Jesus has a plan
he knows when we've been naughty
he knows when we've been nice
and he will judge us all
based upon our vice

So evolution smevolution it's scientific fraud
I learned this fact in bible school from a Christian teacher broad
She taught me truth from Jesus Christ and now my soul is saved
but those evil evolutionists will forever be depraved.

(sorry I was in a poetic mood) Very Happy

Clearly the poem is satire. Anyone who knows me knows this all too well. Wink

And of course the second stanza of the poem does not reflect evolution.

That through a process of mutation plus natural selection applied over billions of years we get the variety of lifeforms we see today.

Evolution, or the changes between an animal with certain traits to an animal with different traits is not the problem with evolution. The problem is that all of this started by accident without evidence of the accident. There is no experiment that has ever succeeded in duplicating this accident. Scientist have mixed together the elements they think where there in the accident, stood back an watched nothing happen.

Those that think that life started by accident even admit that the chances of life coming this way can't even be written down. There are not enough atoms in the universe to write the odds on. It is basically a mathematical impossibility. Even though many evolutionist say they believe in things they can see, they support life coming about by accident without ever seeing that happen.

As has been explained time and time again, this is NOT anything to do with evolution. So you are demonstrating what the OP asks, demonstrating that yourself as a creationist do not understand evolution.

Just as there has been no experiment to duplicate creationism, yet strangely enough, this isn't a concern of yours.

And you think that's it? They do an experiment once, and that's it? They don't get the result they expect on the first try, so game over, end of research, go home everyone?

Coming what way? Other than talk about an 'accident', you haven't outlined anything, gone into detail.
Again, have to remind you, this is not anything to do with evolution.

I don't see any calculations for this claim, or any citations or sources...

Quote:

Now you're demonstrating not just an ignorance of evolution but of statistical probability too.

Says the person who believes in life being designed or created without ever seeing it happen...

Strictly speaking yes, you are correct, but it does highlight what I shall charitably point out is your hypocrisy. You say that evolutionists believe in an event that they cannot see ever happened, all the while you yourself are doing just that. You did not see God either creating or designing creatures.
Is your belief regarding either creationist/design beyond reproach?

I have only seen things come into existence by another living thing. So I have no problem accepting that the first living thing was also made by another living thing. Is it beyond reproach? No. If it is ever observed that a living thing coming from a non-living thing, I want to know about it. Is your belief that things came about by accident beyond reproach?

If I saw things being made by accident then I might lean the other way. As it is, I really do make my decisions based on what I see. So until that changes, the theory for me is, everything comes from another living thing because it's the only thing I have ever observed. Because creation/intelligent can be observed and the other one has never been, I lean more toward creation/intelligent design.

I'd like to point out here that evolution is not about intelligent design. Evolution is about what happens life has already started.

The correct term for the origin of life debates are called abiogenesis versus biogenesis. Or perhaps abiogenesis vs intelligent design.
