Scientists Debate Evolution

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: ID The Future)

(Greenville News) The conference, called "Uncommon Dissent: Scientists Who Find Darwinism Unconvincing," isn't a debate, though. The speakers, all with doctorates attached to their names, are here to poke holes in what they consider scientific dogma that ignores the obvious: that someone or something -- they don't say who or what -- designed living beings.

The eight speakers at this event spoke in front of an audience of 200 people, many of them teachers and college professors. Some people came as far away as the Netherlands in order to attend this mini-conference, which although small was able to attract the interest of Time Magazine.

...Lewis Young, a Greenville travel agency owner who organized the conference as a for-profit venture and because he too is skeptical of Darwinism, said the program is about unbiased scientific evidence, not religion.

"It's nice to be able to go somewhere where somebody is going to address this thing from a strictly scientific viewpoint instead of bringing in philosophical arguments or theological arguments or cosmological arguments," he said. "Well, that's the whole objective here."

Although their were some scoffers who denounced the event in it's entirety, evolutionists must realize that their prolonging of a major public debate is at their own peril. Although evolution is currently taught in the public school system, debate about it's authenticity is growing and unless a public forum is allowed, children could end up throwing out valid scientific findings about nature (i.e. micro-evolution) for whatever philosophy they choose to hold.

The debate about our universal origins will probably continue throughout the next decade, if not longer. If evolution is to survive as a serious theory, they must allow discussion about alternatives within the public arena (as long as the discussion remains scientific). Simply ignoring the "other side" will only add fuel to the fire and perhaps bring about the downfall (reputation wise) of any scientist endorsing evolution as a fact.

No one's stopping public debate on evolution. Evolution proponents do not seem to control the government at the moment, and even if they did, the first amendment would still protect public debate. Blogs like PandasThumb.org devote lots of energy to the debate on the pro-evolution side, and regular political comenters contribute to a lesser degree. What in the world are you talking about?
