Quote# 5239

I completely agree with you that natural selection is incompatible with scripture, but for some of the reasons outlined above, I don't believe that evolution is, per se. Call it 'supernatural selection' if you like.

I like it! Seems like a reasonably guy to me.

I appreciate the effort to not bash evolution, I really do, but this is still a cop-out, wanting to credit God with micromanagement of things when no such management is required (or even logically defensible). And if there is zero evidence for him, you need to leave him out of the equation.

That doesn't mean he CAN'T be there; it just means that, while you can believe it if you want to, you'll just have to ignore that belief in considering the theory.

Whether you like it or not, selection DOES happen, and so far the only nonnatural type observed is that arranged by humans. God has not been scientifically verified.

\"Supernatural Selection\": Survival of the psychicest.

In in pre-industrial Sheffield, England, ghosts were found to be generally white, with black spots for eyes and mouths etc.

As industrial soot from coal began to coat the environment, those ghosts became increasingly obvious to their predators. After a while it was noted that dark skinned ghosts were far more prevalent in numbers, and this pigmentation was the key to their increased chances of survival.
