Ethics


Appearance of New Species

Creationists repeatedly lie that science has never seen new species arise outside the fossil record (macro evolution). Even though it is a very slow process, scientists have seen it dozens of times both in the lab and in the wild. It happens so often, scientists had to invent new vocabulary to describe the various kinds of speciation: allopatric, peripatric, parapatric and sympatric.

Read Evolving: The Human Effect and Why It Matters by Dr. Daniel J. Fairbanks for details. In addition to seeing evolution happen in modern time, we have the fossil record to demonstrate both macro and micro evolution.

In particular, a new bacterium has evolved that eats nylon. Nylon did not even exist until 1935-02-28.

Religion and Curiosity

Religion appeals to those with no curiosity about how the universe is, only how they would like it to be.
