Dawkins on a little bit of luck... luck? hahahaha!



Listen to Dawkins deny chance but allow for a little bit of luck on how a simple system becomes complex. I started laughing when he said this; I could not believe the icon of atheists and evolutionists failed to realize what he said. What is luck but a favorable chance outcome! He just committed sophistry, and this is what is built in into the theory of evolution, it has a built in sophistry in its argument, that is why the more I listen the more I become skeptical. Dawkins has a PhD and yet, his grasp for philosophy evidenced by making such a statement is high school level.

The (Neo)Darwinists cannot have it both ways. If they admit chance, then there is no merit for their theory to be called science; because science's job is to penetrate randomness and even eliminate its influence i.e. predict. On the otherhand if they deny chance, then the thing behaves in a certain law or principle, it becomes predictable. This is where it also crumbles because if there are laws of nature, who put them there or why are they there. To say that it is just there is no argument, it disqualifies itself in telling us the origin of life or man, so it has to stop making those statements. Any which way it turns, it just gets into a mess.

Somewhere between the 9 and 10 minute mark, Dawkins look was priceless. I'm going to watch it again!

RL,

You mean the look of preparing to fudge? ;-)

I would have told him not to worry about it...but that his sins are forgiven for Jesus' sake.

It was more like he was just stunned. He asked the interviewer to turn off the camera as he had no answer. Maybe he has come up with one since, but it was encouraging to see how the interviewer was able to wedge in an element of uncertainty. It gave him pause.... Pausing and wondering about his complex information just might bring him around.

First, he said that You can't get there by chance in one single or short step. Secondly, Your remark about eliminating chance is either totally uninformed or left-handed: Newton's view of a static, mechanic and predictable Universe is gone; Einstein's view of relativity and Heisenberg's UN-certainty principle is the norm.

Lucian,

If you think Newtonian Physics is now passe because of Quantum Mechanics, you are gravely mistaken.

Quantum Mechanics says that Newtonian Physics does not work for light particles or atomic/sub-atomic phenomena. But it works for large bodies. WHat do you think Aeronautic Engineers use to design airplanes or for NASA to shoot the shuttle to space, Quantum Physics? hahahahahaha.


WHat does Heisenberg says? It says that when you try to measure light particles, you can not get both position and momentum precisely, you are only allowed to caculate only one of these but not both. But calculate one, you can!

It says that the method of measurement affects the thing being measured.

Read again, specially the wiki on this.

I know that, but that doesn't change the fact that Your observations from Your post were wrong.

Great post, LP. Good to see you enter the 'fray' again.

L P Cruz said...

Thanks JK,

I am absolutely skeptical of Evolution because compared to other theories, this is weak science.

Lucian,

Which part is wrong? Biblical Creationism cannot be mixed with Evolution. Evolution presummes death of the old to bring new forms. Yet the Bible says there were no death in creation not until Adam sinned.

That is why there is the Gap Theory.

The Creation we know of today is knowledged gained after it has been affected by Adam's sin. We do not know how it was like before it, because that is what paradise would have been.

Maybe there is room for EO on this as yourself, perhaps because you do not accept Original Sin.

Feel free to read St. Athanasius' On the Incarnation. Since he was a Proto-Protestant, and a Lutheran one at that, You should have no trouble understanding him.

L P Cruz said...

Thanks Lucian for reminding me of "our" church father, hahaha LOL.

I am glad you appreciate some of our folks LOL

Here's more on Orthodox soteriology. Enjoy! :-)
