The Big Lie
In her wacky video promoting evolution Carin Bondar states that science doesn’t lie. This sentiment is common amongst evolutionists and the problem is that evolution isn’t science, and if it was, then science would be guilty of lying. Over the top criticism? No, these simply are the facts.
The demarcation problem is notoriously difficult. Just what is and isn’t science, and how do we discern the difference? These can be perplexing questions, but evolution is nowhere close to the subtle boundary line between science and non science.
Evolutionists before Darwin, Darwin, and evolutionists since Darwin all make religious claims in their motivation and defense of evolution. These religious claims are not an aside, they are the core theoretic of evolution. Without them there would be no evolution.
And what is evolution? It is the claim that the world spontaneously arose. The biological world here on Earth, including all the species, originated via a process of random events and natural law—chance and necessity.
This claim is at odds with the scientific evidence. So evolution is a religiously motivated idea that contradicts the empirical data. Evolution clearly is not science, by anyone’s definition.
Second, evolution certainly does lie. For while evolutionists quibble over many things, they agree and insist that evolution is a fact, fully supported and made compelling by the science. That simply is not true.
To be sure, scientists can debate over how best to understand and interpret the many observations we have from science. And one can find many observations that appear to support evolutionary theory.
But this is being kind.
There simply is no question that the preponderance of the scientific evidence presents enormous problems for evolutionary theory. Yes we can debate the details, but we are nowhere close to evolution being a scientific fact, beyond all reasonable doubt, fully supported by the evidence, and so forth. Quite the opposite—evolution is astronomically unlikely from a scientific perspective.
One hates to use the word “lie” and we always try to understand differing perspectives. But this high claim that evolution is a scientific no-brainer is so preposterous, so far from any stretch of the truth, it defies the benefit of the doubt. At some point one must call a spade a spade. Perhaps Bondar needs a sequel.
