Is Evolution falsifiable?

Share this page!

According to the rules of how a theory works, it must “always” remain falsifiable. The minute it becomes unfalsifiable is also the same minute it’s no longer a theory. And when it’s no longer a theory, it has to become one of 2 things. Proven wrong, or what is considered an unchangeable law. In the video below you will see the attempt to make evolution an historical fact. Historical facts are not falsifiable.

Video

Notice in the video that she says that to have students “question” evolution is to mislead them. Then of course the Christian problem of challenging evolution is brought up. What I find ironic is that a real scientific theory would never compete with religion. Example: Does the theory of how electricity works compete with religion? The word weakness is being removed because it puts evolution into question. Then it’s brought up again, to question evolution is to mislead students. So basically historians can now enter the ranks of people who can prove evolution even though they generally don’t have any degrees in biology.

Next video is where a discussion is being held over evolution. Notice how the advocate, Eugene Scott, makes every attempt to say: If you question evolution you are basically stupid. And then what really is an eye opener is what she says about our kids in schools: I would question whether high school students are capable of evaluating high level science. Because according to Eugene Scott, you only being taught the basics. Why send them to school at all if they cannot learn how to evaluate? So basically instead of a high school student being able to make up his or her own mind, and test whatever they are taught. Instead they have to believe it. That’s not education, that’s indoctrination. In other words, you have to believe in evolution, with no questions asked. Let’s look at the definition of indoctrination.

Indoctrination: teaching someone to accept doctrines uncritically.

Video

Basically to teach someone a way to think and not be able to question it. So are our schools teaching mindless clones the doctrine of evolution? But what I find ironic is that evolutionists will use education and ignorance to say that people who don’t believe are uneducated and ignorant. But lets look at what happens to a person who is very educated and questioned evolution.

Video

Ben Stein graduated from Columbia University in 1966 with honors in economics and as valedictorian of the 1970 Yale Law School class. Now did his opinions matter when he is well educated? Nope.

Video

As this video illustrates, you are a fool, regardless of education, just because you disagree with evolution. And what funny is that this guy claims there is no such thing as Darwinism. I suggest you Google it: Darwinism (link) The reason the word Darwinism was made up in the first place was that there were different beliefs about evolution as it was being researched. Basically how evolution progression happened. So a separation was needed thus the word Darwinism was born. Then he brings up the Nobel Prize deal. Sorry, but ever since Gore and Obama got Noble Prizes, I have totally no respect for it. Scientist Dr. Raymond Damadian who invented the technology for the MRI. He was not been given a Nobel prize for his work, but as a slap in the face it was awarded to Paul Lauterbur and Sir Peter Mansfield for their discoveries related to MRI instead. All because Dr. Raymond Damadian was a creationist. Reference: Wikipedia

So is the invention of the MRI worthy of a Nobel Prize or not? To further inflict insult, I can guarantee it will not be awarded until after he is dead. And If I were in Damadian’s family, I would reject it if they hold it until he dies. This goes along with the page I did on evolution being about conformism. Which by the way, the video above is a perfect example of.

So is evolution falsifiable? Not if:
1) It can no longer be questioned.
2) Naturalism remains the only thing science will investigate.
3) Indoctrination is the only way it will ever be taught.
4) And fear of character assassination, or loss of job because one does not conform to evolutionary beliefs. Basically using fear to spread their beliefs.

Every time I see a video, website, forum, or blog making fun of creationists, I laugh. You know why? It’s because it shows that when the evidence fails for evolution, character assassination is all that they have left. So ham it up, it only shows how lame evolution is that it would require a person to resort to such things. In fact, while I’m on this subject of how evolutionist “have to” act badly to prove their theory. Let’s see where their ideas to do this really came from… Saul Alinsky’s book on communism called: Rules for Radicals. Gives a point by point action in defeating your non-communist foe and be able to take over. See if any of these tactics look familiar.

7. Tactics

“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves.” p.126

Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):

1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat…. [and] the collapse of communication.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time….”

8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”

11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)

I find it ironic that almost every evolutionist resorts to these tactics during debates. Militant atheists are the worst and will train the wannabes by example. So is it really science they are promoting while using evolution as their tool, or is there another agenda? And all of these tactics make evolution unfalsifiable. Fear of having their beloved theory proven wrong requires such actions. if not. maybe one can post here and explain why?

The Role of Epigenetics in Adaptation, Part 1

The following Matters of Fact column by CRS board member Dr. Jean Lightner appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 3, May/June 2018.

Q.  Does epigenetics play a role in adaptation? 
A.  Physiologist: YES! Evolutionary biologist: Maybe…. 

Adaptation, in the sense that we will discuss, can be defined as changes which help an organism become better suited to its environment. It is related to one of the foundational characteristics of life: the ability to respond to the environment. Physiological adaptation relies on epigenetics, or modifications that can affect gene expression. This does not change the sequence of DNA, but allows genes to be up or down regulated to suit the needs of the organism (see Lightner, 2013). 

There are several known mechanisms of epigenetic regulation (Figure 1): 

1) histone modification (including acetylation, phosphorylation, and methylation) 

2) cytosine methylation in DNA 

3) various non-coding RNA molecules (miRNA, siRNA, piRNA, and lncRNA) 

These mechanisms vary in the timeframe over which they typically act, allowing for both rapid changes and more stable, long-term changes. 

Scientists had assumed that these types of changes could not be inherited by offspring. The basis for this was largely philosophical: the Modern Synthesis (aka Neo-Darwinism) was predicated on the idea that the environment could not direct phenotypic change. Instead, the source of phenotypic variation is claimed to be from random genetic mutations; natural selection then reduces or eliminates less fit variants. To support the conjecture that epigenetic changes are not heritable, some scientists pointed to the observation that DNA methylation patterns are reset in pathways leading to offspring (i.e., germ cell formation and fertilization). However, it is now recognized that the reset of DNA methylation isn’t always complete, and it is not the only mechanism involved in trans-generational epigenetic inheritance (Morgan et al., 1999; Rassoulzadegan et al., 2006). 

For several decades now, it has been known that epigenetic inheritance can provide a source of heritable variation. However, it is not yet clear how often it does so, and what role it plays in adaptation of populations. Research has increased on this important topic, but much remains to be learned. One recent review article identified a web of potential interactions. It also pointed out that understanding patterns of natural epigenetic variation, the causes of that variation, and the consequences of it are necessary to adequately address the role it may have in adaptation (Richards et al., 2017). 

Factors influencing epigenetic variation 

In some studies it appears that DNA methylation differences are associated with underlying genetic differences. This raises the possibility of genetic control of epigenetic variability. It is also possible that a stable epimutation (heritable epigenetic change) could be inherited along with the underlying genetic sequence, thus causing the correlation. It has also been noted that epigenetic changes can influence genetic variation, specifically as it relates to silencing transposable elements, whose movement can change the sequence of a gene or its promoter (Richards et al., 2017). 

Some epimutations appear to arise stochastically. If these are stable over multiple generations, then natural selection may affect the pattern of variation. It is also known that environmental factors can effect heritable epigenetic changes, but the pattern and extent of this is not well known. Significant work needs to be done across different species, especially wild plants and animals, before reasonable generalizations can be made (Balao et al. 2018; Richards et al., 2017). 

FIGURE 1. A chromosome is made up of DNA coiled around proteins, called histones. There are three basic mechanisms by which epigenetic changes can be made. First, the tail of the histone proteins can undergo several types of modification (A), including phosphorylation (Ph), methylation (Me), and acetylation (Ac), that can affect accessibility of specific genes. Secondly, cytosine residues in DNA can be methylated (red dot) or un– methylated (green dot), the details of which are represented in section B of the figure. This affects gene transcription (the copying of DNA to make mRNA). Finally, various microRNAs (C) can bind mRNA to prevent synthesis into proteins. All of these mechanisms play a role in changing gene expression without affecting the DNA sequence.

Are you one of the over 49,500 views who’s watched “7 Reasons” on YouTube since its release a week ago?

We’ve been so encouraged to read the many online comments, such as this one from YouTube:

"This is THE first time I’ve ever cried (quietly flowing down my cheeks and dripping off my chin kinda tears), regarding the abortion I had 9 years ago. I’ve LITERALLY NEVER felt convicted, not once before…And after watching this.. well, yeh.. I’ve just sat here frowning, now my eyes have dried, and thinking to myself, “Wow, what IS happening to me?!”…I’m a feminist, pro-choice (I thought), equality, love and peace to all kinda person. I guess I better think again................. Mind = blown. Thank you for this video."

Name: Monito del Monte
Status: Thought to be extinct until its rediscovery.
Information: A remarkable, diminutive marsupial thought to have been extinct until one was discovered in a thicket of Chilean bamboo in the southern Andes.
Thought to exist: 55 million years ago.
Reference: http://historysevidenceofdinosaursandmen.weebly.com/living-fossils.html
The fossilised ankle and ear bones are those of Australias earliest known marsupial, Djarthia, a primitive mouse-like creature that lived 55 million years ago. ..a new study in the journal PLoS ONE [http://www.plosone.org/] has confirmed that Djarthia is also a primitive relative of the small marsupial known as the Monito del Monte - or little mountain monkey - from the dense humid forests of Chile and Argentina.
Reference: http://www.create.unsw.edu.au/news/2008-03-25_monito.html
The monito del monte, Spanish for ‘little bush monkey’, named after its monkey-like partially prehensile tail, is a diminutive marsupial native to South America in the Valdivian temperate rain forests of the southern Andes (Chile and Argentina). It is the only extant species in the ancient order of Microbiotheria. ...Genetic studies show that this species retains the most primitive characteristics of its group, and thus is regarded as a “living fossil.”

Your picture makes it seem like the two species shown are found 55 Ma apart even though they are both modern species. Rather, it was the genus Djarthia (whose exact taxonomic position is uncertain) that occurs in the Paleocene, as noted in the PLOS paper you provided. This graphic is either a misunderstanding or diliberate misrepresentation of the references cited. May I ask what formal training in paleontology the admin of this page has had?

We didn't claim the skulls were from a 55 million year old fossil, it is the references that claim Monito del Monte is regarded as a living fossil and thought to exist: 55 million years ago.

Colby, please stop spamming the contrasts. There is no need to post the same link multiple times, Thank you.

I was just doing a one shot on each post. I didnt even think anyone even looked at this page anymore. I apologize.

Looks like the Colbinator deleted his post 😭
