Here is the transcript of the defense's "Answer" from the court stenographer in response to my petition for clairifcation of the aforementioned terms currently in dispute..
"In the simplest terminology possible (assuming everyone is an adult with a high school education), in the context of my statement the term "scientific community" is referring to those with professional qualifications dealing with Universal Common Ancestry; mainly biologists and biochemists, particularly those with concentrations within relevant fields."
According to the defense, in his context, is it possible that there may exist people who posess his referenced "professional qualifications" that ALSO happen to categorically and unconditionally REJECT the "theory of evolution" Or, More accurately.... Mindless MYO Mud to Microbe to Man?
"The use of the term "evolutionary science" is again, in context, dealing with the accumulated knowledge of those professionally qualified to speak on the subject of UCA."
According to the defense, in his context, is it possible that there may exist people "professionally qualified that ALSO categorically and unconditionally REJECT the "theory of evolution" Or, more accurately...
Mindless MYO Mud to Microbe to Man?
It is possible to have a professional understanding of evolutionary theory and reject it, as is the case with literally any theory. One such individual is Todd Wood, Ph.D. in biochemistry and YEC who helped develop baraminology. If there is no objection from the bench I would like to introduce into the record one of Mr. Wood's blog posts on this exact issue from September 30, 2009, and read allowed a shortned version of it.
In Mr. Wood's blog (here) he states, and I quote (emphasis in original): "Evolution is not a theory in crisis. It is not teetering on the verge of collapse. It has not failed as a scientific explanation. There is evidence for evolution, gobs and gobs of it. It is not just speculation or a faith choice or an assumption or a religion. It is a productive framework for lots of biological research, and it has amazing explanatory power. There is no conspiracy to hide the truth about the failure of evolution. There has really been no failure of evolution as a scientific theory. It works, and it works well.... There is evidence for evolution, and evolution is an extremely successful scientific theory.... Evolution itself is not flawed or without evidence. Please don't be duped into thinking that somehow evolution itself is a failure."
Mr. Wood clearly explains why he rejects evolutionary theory in said blog, and I quote: "It is my own faith choice to reject evolution, because I believe the Bible reveals true information about the history of the earth that is fundamentally incompatible with evolution.... Faith is enough. If God said it, that should settle it. Maybe that's not enough for your scoffing professor or your non-Christian friends, but it should be enough for you."
I am certain the prosecution can find another person professionally qualified to speak on the issue that believes evolution is fundamentally flawed scientifically, but as we can see with Mr. Wood's online "rant", even professionals can reject a theory for reasons completely unrelated to the scientific merits of said theory.
Ah Yes... The old tried and True "Todd Wood" AKA "Evolutionist in sheeps clothing" logical fallacy.
WONT WORK HERE..
I have written to your example TODD WOOD several letters asking him to present evidence for his claims.. He hasnt addressed my questions AT ALL.... I will present them to the court..
Your Honor.. I ask that you strike the ridiculous reference to Todd Wood from the record as he appears to be a hostile (To the word of God) witness..
EXHIBIT A FOR OUR HONORABLE JUDGE MTW

Hi Todd, I have been studying the subject of "Evolution" for over 20 years and am confident that I know as much or more about the subject of origins than 99.99% of the humans on this planet.
When I saw your assertion in this article about "Gobs and Gobs of "evidence" for "Evolution" It really caught my attention to say the least, I would love for you to PLEASE give me a few examples
of what this "Evidence" is, because up until now "Evolutionists have been hiding it from Creationists and telling us that we just dont understand how "evolution works" and need to "Trust Science"
Just to clarify, When you use the word "Evolution" in your context, one should assume that you are referring to UCA all flora and fauna and NOT merely variation and adaptation like moth colors,finch beaks, bacterial resistance, and dog variety, Correct? BTW the word "Micro" Evolution is a marketing ploy / Bait and Switch deception used to fool people that is "Evolution" WHEN IT IS NOT.
Just a reminder. Wishful Speculation, Hopeful Assumptions, Unverified Speculation, Myths, Legends, and Circular Reasoning should not be acceptable to Anyone when it comes to Evidence that must conform to the Scientific Method to be considered Empirical Science (Or do you not agree with that?)
BTW, I am also curious about the "amazing explanatory power" that "Evolution" has..
For example, Evolution can explain why we should expect "Evolution to Occur...
Instantly ("Hopeful Monsters" or "Saltation")
Rapidly. (Spontaneous Generation)
Slowly.. (decent with minuscule modifications over MOYs)
Never.... (400 Million Year Old Living Fossils)
Yup.... How very impressive is the "Amazing explanatory power of Evolution" Indeed..
HERE IS WHAT YOU WROTE FOR REFERENCE..
"Evolution is not a theory in crisis. It is not teetering on the verge of collapse. It has not failed as a scientific explanation. There is evidence for evolution, gobs and gobs of it. It is not just speculation or a faith choice or an assumption or a religion. It is a productive framework for lots of biological research, and it has amazing explanatory power. There is no conspiracy to hide the truth about the failure of evolution. There has really been no failure of evolution as a scientific theory. It works, and it works well.
I say these things not because I'm crazy or because I've "converted" to evolution. I say these things because they are true"
Kind regards Blitzking (Jim Thinnsen)
