I found this article in an old issue of National Geographic. I thought it was a pretty good example of modern evolutionary thinking.
Many people rely on science as the definitive, never changing, be all end all of life. Though they would never claim that science is a belief system, their actions betray the fact that they both believe in and depend upon it.
As a belief system it kind of ‘forcefully inhales’ (sucks). Now, don’t get me wrong. I like science. I enjoy studying it. I enjoy teaching it to my kids. Don’t think I’m a science-hater. But, there is a lot about it that is not definite, changes often, and even requires faith.
Notice some of the wording from the article…
“would have allowed”
“may have been”
If you don’t know the answers, don’t claim to have them, and please stop creating entire species of animals from a few discovered bones.
