The Assumptions Behind the Theory of Evolution: Why We Are Taught Assumptions As Codified Facts of Science

Portada
AuthorHouse, 2011 - 476 páginas

The foundation of evolutionary theory consists solidly of numerous unwarranted and illegitimate assumptions, many of which are antagonistic to the facts of nature. These assumptions are taught to the public as codified facts of science, when they exist only as "what if's." The author addresses these issues as well as the philosophical roots of this scientific movement that push the theory along, keeping it "alive" by less than scientific means. He exposes the farce that a false philosophy - not science - keeps alive. Most of the arguments for Intelligent Design are covered as well as many more ID doesn't cover.

The author also covers various "games" that evolutionary theorists like to play in their efforts to make evolutionary theory seem scientific. He covers "equivocation" (switching the meanings of words around to fit one's means to an end), especially the four different meanings of the word "evolution" utilized by evolutionists to confuse the issue. Before long, anyone caught up into a debate with an evolutionist must concede because of these perfidious tactics.

According to one scientist, this is an "excellent book...It promises to be a very important book in this area (referring to the creation vs. evolution controversy)." Dr. Jerry Bergman, M.S., Ph.D., M.P.H., M.A., M.S.B.S.

Sobre el autor (2011)

IntroductionIn scientific controversies, there is rarely any argument about facts. It is rather their interpretation that is controversial. E. Mayr [1]I birthed this book out of frustration. Frustration at seeing so many books published that question the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution, yet each one missed important foundational truths that could destroy the theory if the general public (and honest scientists) discovered the nature of those truths. These authors have done masterful jobs in crushing the theory at key points, such as James Remine, who exposed the illusions of the evolutionary smorgasbord of false definitions and word games in his bookThe Biotic Message.And Dr. Lee Spetner, who masterfully showed the error and mismanagement of terminology by evolutionary theorists in calling any genetic change a mutation and then claiming those mutational changes as evolution in action in his book,Not By Chance.These, and others, have demolished key and pivotal columns supporting evolutionary theory as a valid idea. Some have even touched on the main theme of this book, but they did not cover in detail the foundations of the theory, but we will. Those foundations are solidly based in unwarranted and illegitimateassumptions.Before we go into those assumptions in depth, we will first examine the above quotation. Mayr is correct. Facts are hard, cold, and unaffected by human emotions and desires. However, interpretations of those facts are not hard and cold, and they most certainlyareimpressed (or pressed into service) by human emotions and desires. Interpretations change with each new discovery until almost every hidden fact is found and our knowledge on the subject becomes complete (or at least as complete as we can attain). Interpretations are one focal point of this book. Interpretations, unlike facts, can change by the influence of doctrinal and philosophical belief systems. We can see the evidence of this fact in the interpretations demonstrated within the origins debate. The doctrinal and philosophical belief of one group acknowledges the hand of an outside influence, a creator, God. The other side of the debate denies the supernatural and the metaphysical, including a creator.This important thought needs to be remembered; the points argued herein are not the facts at hand, so much as theinterpretation methodsused by evolutionary theorists in rendering judgment on those facts. In doing the research for this book,I have found that nearly all evolutionary judgments on the facts of nature are interpretations based on illegitimate evolutionary assumptions.These assumptions, as we will examine in the following chapters, are invalid because the facts of nature do not warrant them.In all fairness, do the doctrinal and philosophical belief systems in the creation side of the debate also play interpretational roles? They do, to a certain point; but do they influence the creationist interpretationsbeyondwhat the facts allow? I will show that they do not. Evolutionary interpretations, however, are influenced by philosophical assumptions and personal bias, to the point that the decisions made for interpretations go beyond the limits of the facts in question, to the point of assuming things about nature that the facts of nature do not validate. These assumptions are the focal point of this work, and their uncovering will expose them for what they really exist as: exercises of great imagination, exercises of self-will over truth seeking, exercises of "what I want to believe" whether the facts allow their interpretations or not.My purpose in this book is to expose the main evolutionary assumptions and the interpretations they generate; to reveal the reality behind those illegitimate and unwarranted assumptions. In other words, when not mixed with evolutionary assumptions, the facts speak for themselves, harboring no mysteries that the theory usually (and automatically) come with. As we will see, the practice of using these illegi
