EVOLUTION: THEORY or SOMETHING ELSE?

July 17th, 2009 by Creation-Facts Leave a reply »

The following definitions are taken from the Oxford English and the World Book Dictionaries and is quoted here from an article written by Dr. Dave Demick, M.D. in Think & Believe published by Alpha Omega Institute, September / October 2005.

SCIENTIFIC LAW—- A regular pattern of occurrence of natural events, so regular and predictable that there are few or no exceptions. The fewer the exceptions to a law, the better established it is.

FACT —- That which exists, something witnessed firsthand, a datum of experience (plural: data)

THEORY
—- A framework of scientific explanation concerning a certain phenomenon or group of phenomena, which has gained validity by showing predictive power or explaining newly observed facts.

HYPOTHESIS —- A tentative scientific explanation for a set of observed facts, subject to future proof (or disproof) through further observation / experimentation. The usual progression is that a hypothesis graduates to being a theory.

CONJECTURE —- An opinion or conclusion based on incomplete information; a guess.

Take every statement made about evolution and judge that statement according to the above definitions. You will find that each evolutionary statement falls short of ¬†each definition except conjecture. Every “proof” that has been touted as “proof of evolution” has eventually been exposed as a fraud or seriously misrepresented. See future posts for many examples of these misrepresentations.
