Doing a bit more with this today. Essentially this is 51 minutes and 25 seconds of uninterrupted propaganda for evolution. http://www.cassiopei...lution&big=tran
is a transcript for easy refuting of what they are saying, so you can copy and paste instead of listening to the video and typing (which is a pain). In the first thirty seconds they have already made a false statement, leading people down the illusory path of evolution, and making it the only game in town. This continues later in the video but I will take a quote from it (around 14 seconds in):"Along the way, many will applaud and many will object. But both reactions are inappropriate. Science as a discipline does not cheer for a given outcome of its experiments and investigations."
While applauding is inappropriate, objection is absolutely appropriate
when experiments and evidence refutes the claims made. I think we can all agree on this.
Continuing (40 seconds): "But we will touch on enough detail to give a solid underpinning for the following conclusions…Common Descent is a fact…all life on earth is related through commonancestry.Changes within a single species occur – so-called microevolution.Species themselves come and go – so called macroevolution.The primary mechanism of change is genetic inheritance…withvariation…and natural selection."
Bolded the deceptive claims. They aim to prove common descent within the video, therefore, their claim that it is a fact at the beginning of the video is premature to the viewer, preloading the average viewers brain with a conclusion so as not to allow them to question the evidence presented. "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." -Oz
Species themselves come and go? Well if you loosely define species as birds giving rise to new species of birds that can no longer interbreed with their ancestors then yes, but they look exactly the same, and so calling that macro evolution is DECEPTION. Also, species disappearing is NOT evidence for evolution. These phrases roll off the tongue in such a languid voice so as to hypnotize the audience, lulling them into a peaceful mood which allows them to be indoctrinated easier. "We will NOT discuss God or Intelligent Design. Worthy topics – but NOT for science.
If you examine all the pertinent data within the video, it also fits perfectly with Intelligent Design, but it is so much easier to convince people of evolution when it is the only game in town, so they discard it as irrelevant
. What they really do not want you to know is that evolution itself is in the realm of philosophy, pulling its supporting data from science, much like the ID that they disparage in this video."[...] None of this changes the fact that every living thing on earth is related to every otherliving thing on earth."
Again, reinforcing their beliefs as fact. If you repeat the word "fact" enough, it must be true right?"If it is to be called science, it must be testable. And for almost 150 years the research community has done every test imaginable to examine Evolution and Common Descent. And for 150 years not a single test has EVER failed to validate that all life on earth comes from a common ancestor."
Notice the indication that ID is not testable.
Tests over 150 years have not resoundingly DISPROVEN common descent, but no one test would do that. It requires an analysis of data from experiments to disprove common descent. Such experiments certainly have not VALIDATED common descent either, yet If you take out their double negative "not" and "failed", then you see WHAT THEY ARE REALLY SAYING: "every single test in the last 150 years has validated universal common descent."REALLY???!!! Shameless lies..."Here are just a few of the prestigious scientific organizations that accept this as aproven fact…check it out…American Association for the Advancement of ScienceNational Academy of SciencesNational Center for Science EducationAmerican Institute of Biological SciencesAmerican Society of NaturalistsAnimal Behavior SocietyEcological Society of AmericaGenetics Society of AmericaPaleontological SocietySociety for Molecular Biology and EvolutionSociety for the Study of EvolutionSociety of Systematic BiologistsGeological Society of America"
So a shameless argument from authority. I am sure that the leading flat earthers had credibility for awhile in their heyday...but creationists have systematically shown that all this "evidence" is an illusion, that it does not exclusively point to common descent but also, conflictingly, points to a common designer.To Be Continued...
