Katelyn Discusses Evolution

Katelyn at Stand Up and Speak Out (what a great blog for a high schooler) wrote: "I have decided to have a discussion of evolution on my blog, in light of the recent Intelligent Design controversies. While I believe that evolution is at least a possibility, I recognize that atheistic evolution is unreasonable. Something cannot come out of nothing unless someone puts it there."

In just a day, the comments at SUSO have been fast and fascinating. I joined in and hope my friends do too.

I've been writing about the Myths of Evolution (12/17) including Godless Evolution (12/21): "Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled athiest."--Richard Dawkins; Darwinism's Ugly Side (12/23): Stalin read Darwin and became an athiest. -- "Landmarks in the Life of Stalin" as noted by Free Agency Rules; and Darwinian Frauds (12/25): "We paleontologists have said that the history of life supports the Darwinian theory all the while really knowing that it does not."-- Niles Eldrege. In the next installment I'll relate the hostility of Drawinists in their dealings with those who believe God played a part.

Here I'd like to say a bit about the pseudosciences that have sprung up in the wake of Darwinian orthodoxy. From Wikipedia we find:

Sociobiology, a synthesis of scientific disciplines that attempts to explain behaviour in all species by considering the evolutionary advantages of social behaviours. Sociobiology contends that genes play a decisive role in human behavior, suggesting there is little we can do to eliminate things like human aggression. Criminals really can't help themselves.

Evolutionary psychology proposes that animal psychology can be better understood in light of evolution. Evolutionary psychology is based on the presumption that, like hearts and lungs, cognition also has a genetic basis, and therefore has evolved by natural selection. Darwin even controls your thoughts.

Parents beware: They are teaching this kind of crap to your kids.

Bravo Katelyn!
Oh so good to hear from the intelligently designed intelligent ones! I truly believe your generation has many gems like you,Katelyn. And may your brilliancy light the world.

Wow. Reading your list of works. You must have had to do a lot of research into the works of people like the Leakys and Johansson.

One point (among many) that I dispute is Dr. Timothy White's hypothesis on the development of bipedal locomotion among early hominids (what the evolutionists call the not quite ape like skeletons found mostly in Kenya).

I for one think that he is a little far-fetched. I mean, how could a learned behavior lead to fundamental and inheritable genetic changes?

Have you written on this topic? Could you please address the issue if you have not?

Thanks!
