Darwin's Folly

In 1831, a young man with a weak stomach set off for 5 years as an unpaid naturalist onboard the HMS Beagle. The conclusions he reached on this momentous voyage changed how we saw the world and our place in it. There was only one problem: Charles Robert Darwin was wrong.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll examine one of the most influential ideas in science over the past 200 years – the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. Charles Darwin’s much touted theories have been enthusiastically, even religiously, embraced by science, and questioning them invites scorn on a level normally reserved for members of the flat earth society. Still, it has to be said: Darwin made some great and essential errors. Let's have a deeper look.

Today on Thinking With Somebody Else’ Head, Darwin’s Folly.

Hi Richard!This was interesting to listen. So you are a creationist? How old is the Earth do you mean? But all scelets and bones they have found? Don´t you beleive in the dinosauries either? Don´t you believe in any form of development or evolution? Don´t you believe that the evolution goes from the ligher stages to the higher? Why not?
Have you read Marc Andre Keppe´s book "the origin of the earth"? If you have readen it, what did you think about it?

Thanks/Mikael J,Sweden

The scientific method requires things to pe proveable and repeatable. There has not been one example of the evolution of any new species on earth since the bogus theory was given. Darwin even renounced his own theory before he died. Don't respond with any anti-Christian BS because I am only talking about the scientific method, which cannot be applied to "evolution".
So-called scientists with the flavor of the century are praised because people want to believe. Go back to the scientific method, if you can't prove it, don't try to tell me it is fact.

Provittome, not sure what your point is, since I think you are I are largely in agrément! And I am very far from anti-Christian. Is that not obvious from my program?
So, just to reiterate, I have no interest in proving Darwin's bogus theory, since I also don't believe it. So, you'll have no argument against you from me!
