My Brain Hurts!

I just can’t help it, when I get to thinking about stuff; I seem to awaken more opposition to the solution than I do the resolve. I have been studying the thought “What Is Truth” and whilst it is easy enough to come up with a contrite statement that will satisfy the ear, somehow it just unravels many of the theories and observations those years of learning have established. I mean, who decides what is truth?

The forceps of our minds are clumsy things and crush the truth a little in the course of taking hold of it. ~H.G. Wells

I have been putting together some blog thoughts over the past few weeks and as a result have ended up having to further research the model by which many scientific arguments are presented. Problem is, many of the arguments used to dispel a theory from being accepted as a fact, are now being ignored when it comes to presenting so called evidence in favour for establishing a theory as a fact. What am I talking about, the great debate between intelligent design and evolution?

Our job is not to make up anybody's mind, but to open minds and to make the agony of the decision-making so intense you can escape only by thinking. ~Author Unknown

“I believe that one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deceit in the history of science. When this happens, many people will pose the question; How did this ever happen?” Lovtrup Soren.

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use. ~Soren Kierkegaard

Darwin himself made this observation on his THEORY, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down"cited in Michael J Behe, Darwins black box p39

Too often we... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. ~John F. Kennedy

Since the opening up of Darwins “black box” (Nuclear Genetics), science is without a rational defense in support of this theory. Yet they persist in riding it! Why?

Perhaps it is to preserve the theory that has become more of a stance against intelligent design than the pursuit of scientific evidence? A refusal to go to the scientific evidence is not a scientific hypothesis, yet science still clings to a leaking theory.

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again? ~Winnie the Pooh

“To Darwin, the cell was a black box, its inner workings were utterly mysterious to him. Now the black box has been opened up and we know how it works. Applying Darwin’s test to the ultra-complex world of molecular machinery and cellular systems that have been discovered over the past forty years, we can say that Darwin’s theory has absolutely broken down”. cited in Michael J Behe, Darwins black box p39

No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head. ~Terry Josephson

You see, if the theory of evolution has become a fact (as many would iterate), then one would have to substantiate it scientifically. Francis Crick – Nobel prize winner and evolutionist said in Life Itself; it’s origin and nature. p88 “An honest man armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions that would have to have been satisfied to get it going".

If we are to conclude that science itself is now being driven by a culture and philosophy of preference and belief, we do well to judge it by our own. If science is now presenting philosophical ideals as the philosophers of old did, then excuse me if I stick to my steadfast anchor as they float into the cosmos somewhere in pursuit of another black box.

The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking. ~Albert Einstein
