Can you really say Evolution has no Meaning ?

All known evidence indicates life didn't exist until roughly a billion (1,000,000,000+/-) years ago. Measuring consciousness is a different matter and calls into question our own sanity as a species (for the sake of efficient dialogue, we assume that we can reliably compare other examples of intelligent life with our own abilities)

Perhaps you can briefly describe the "Ebner Effect" for the forum, if you don't mind.



I think life started about 3.7 billion years ago, but was rather stagnate until about a billion years ago to where more advance life kicked into over drive. I suggested that once the predator/prey scenario came on the scene it is what kicked off the arms race in life.


Thank you for the correction

So many different sects. It's hard to keep all the "facts" straight

The equivalent of correcting someone's grammar when you're losing an argument.

Why does it not surprise me science confuses you?


Life first appeared in the Eoarchean Era when the surface of the earth cooled. Prior to that, it was still Moulton in what's called the Hadean Eon. simple lifeforms first appeared 3.5 billion years ago. However, the first multicellular animals did not appear until about 2.5 billion years ago with the first plant life appearing 1.6 billion. The earliest animal fossils appear around 558 million years ago, and multicellular plants evolved from algae around 470 million years ago.

It took a long time for life to organize into something that was multicellular and could survive lots of failed attempts along the way. Not to mention time was needed for algae to produce enough oxygen in the atmosphere.

I'm still waiting for you to show me an example of something coming from nothing, or admitting you were wrong

Whats the evidence that shows that?

Source? Empirical, no faith blogs.

Whats the evidence that can make you so sure of these dates?

As a scientist I can't just accept these dates based on blind faith

There is no meaning with evolutionary theory. If we are the spawn of unintelligent random matter, then there is no ultimate higher purpose, and all consciousness inevitably returns to non-awareness without a trace. Luckily for us this is not the case. Our world is far from random or unintelligent, there are intelligible consistent laws that uphold all matter.

These facts get ignored for a random mutant fiction story, that you will realize none of them can defend with straight-forward empirical observations. Despite this they spout their faith in their microbial progenitor as if it's undeniable fact, and they coerce those who are easily intellectually bullied into believing their same meaningless, hopeless theories.

That's the irony I'm pointing out. Theirs is supposed to be science though... it is supposed to be evidence-based

Their belief in a randomly mutated microbial progenitor source of all life inherently gives no meaning to life besides a lucky accident. But if there is a conscious realm that persists beyond matter then there is hope for our enduring existence

Prove what you've just written. I'd like to see the evidence for a universal conscience, a proof of a design for all organic matter, proof of a plan or scheme for life that excludes almost all of the rest of the universe.

So your only defense of evolution is to criticize other ideas? Not good.

Intelligible mathematically predictable laws show that there was something intelligent to implement the system. Laws can't come to be without intelligence, as shown by our own court of laws. But this thread is about evolution. Not to mention evolution is supposed to be a science, which would require proof. Show proof that a population of organisms can gradually evolve into a distinctly new organism

To be fair, that's exactly what you're doing. Hyping up your creation hypothesis by attacking the competition.

What "ultimate higher purpose" does your creation hypothesis propose? What is creationism supposed to do for the human race that's so incredibly exciting?

If we are intelligently designed by a higher intelligence, then the birthright of humankind would be great beyond our current comprehension.

Alienview posted a topic asking a question, several forum members have answered the question, and you challenged the answers provided which in turn prompted several answers to your challenge.

"...then the birthright of humankind would be great beyond our current comprehension."

Explain that in more detail please.
