To the video 10 of Evolution’s Craziest Theories, I, Ken Ammi, commented:
After over a century of demanding that dinosaurs never live with humans, Atheist evolutionists now demand that dinosaurs have lived with humans all along.
A certain teuelin replied:
Yeah it’s called science. We observe the world around us, hypothesize to attempt to explain, test, peer review, repeat.
Reality is complicated and we learn more about it every day. The fact we are hungry for knowledge and want to learn more and better understand the world of the past, present and future is not a negative. Science and our understanding of our world is not set in stone like your good book is.
teuelin followed up thusly:
Disregard my original statement. There is absolutely no scientific basis for his claim. I thought there was some new landmark discovery of some strange dinosaur remnant like a huge crocodile or something that cohabitated with us for a bit, overlapping.
Instead it’s just a straw man like everything on this list. Arguments from ignorance and straw men.
So are we supposed to believe whatever Atheist evolutionists tell us du jour even if the next day they say the exact opposite? You seem to imply that adhering to “science,” such as basing our views on it is a universal imperative but you don’t say how or why on your worldview.
Are you an Atheist? If so then how could you appeal to “Reality” since in that case, reality would be accidental, as would our ability to discern it, there’s be no universal imperative to adhere to it, nor to demand/expect others to adhere to it which would discredit your comment.
Likewise, if that’s the case then “fact” refer to an accident that that “we are hungry for knowledge” is also accidental.
The scientific methods is premised on my “good book.”
Adhere to the scientific method. Everything on the list was either an argument from ignorance or a straw man. As we gain more knowledge our understanding changes and that is not a problem.
I am an atheist, have a good one 👍
P.S. It doesn’t matter how reality sprang into existence. It doesn’t change anything. Odd statement that there would be no universal imperative if it randomly sprang into existence. Doesn’t logic.
Note that you demanded that I “Adhere to the scientific method” but just because you say so?
The issue is not that “As we gain more knowledge our understanding changes” but that, as I noted, “how could you appeal to ‘Reality’ since in that case, reality would be accidental, as would our ability to discern it, there’d be no universal imperative to adhere to it, nor to demand/expect others to adhere to it which would discredit your comment.”
Now, you sort of touch upon that when you write, “It doesn’t matter how reality sprang into existence. It doesn’t change anything” but it does, it changes everything since on your worldview adhering to reality is just an emotively subjective personal preference du jour based on hidden assumptions (I already elucidated this).
Why say “Odd statement that there would be no universal imperative if it randomly sprang into existence” since what you subjectively find odd is not a standard and that’s just a half-though: odd ergo what? But you say “Doesn’t logic” and it’s the same issue as with reality: on your worldview logic is accidental, as is our ability to discern it, there’s no universal imperative to adhere to it, nor to demand/expect others to adhere to it which would discredit your comment.
“Doesn’t logic” is a jump to a conclusion without an argument (of course, that’s not a problem on Atheism).
Well, that ended that as no more replies were forthcoming.
