I can only repeat: YOU'RE NOT ARGUING EVOLUTION!

First thing, he obviously doesn't understand what he's saying, probably a copy pasta, he doesn't know science using the *its only a theory* line, pathetic.
Second thing, I think what he's trying to do is relate the natural laws of the universe to evolution (which he failed because he's ended up talking about abiogenesis instead).
Edit: I don't know, I kind of feel sorry for them, I mean shouldn't we put them in like a camp and teach them how to think logically, I don't think harassing them is going to make the world a better place.

Mitch, you try a little too hard to make sense of the fundies.

Since energy and matter are equivalent, and the sum of both could be a constant without creation, i dont see where hes going

I think that's one of those "decay rates/ light speed in vacuum/ *insert any natural constant here* are not constant. Therefore, you can't trust any solid evidence. Therefore, blue fish (or aliens, or god etc) created universe." arguments. It's one of completely ludicrous arguments creationists use and they use it mainly for two reasons: 1) Untestability of most of it's premises 2)Intelectual dishonesty, since not all of the evidence is looked through this same twisted magnifying glass.
In it's essence, this argument is just one of the means to throw away every evidence, starting premise and conclusion that doesn't agree with your worldview, without actually widening the scope enough to see all of the consequences of changing one simple natural constant. It also has primeses of "last tuesdayism", but I'll leave that to you to find where exactly.

I hath to disagree. What OP is really saying is "The way you measure passage of time and properties of matter is wrong/ not good enough to draw conclusions." without giving alternative ways or the answer what exactly the world is doing wrong. Also, Evolution theory strawman FTL!

Evolution IS the theory whereby matter + energy + chance chemistry = creation.
That's abiogenesis, dear.
Matter ITSELF defines time. Time is not a constant. Matter is not a constant. Therefore you calculations for time are only in the dimension you find yourself now
So I guess the entirety of history is useless, then?
evolutionary time is subsequently, only a theory.
Need I explain that scientists don't use the word "theory" in the layman's sense? Suffice it to say that a "theory" to a layman is a scientist's "hypothesis".

I Read About The Afterlife
After reading that, I do not think you are qualified to tell me what evolution is and is not.
Evolution has no statement on creation. Merely it says "The fittest survive and while those with bad genes get out of the gene pool."

Granted, I'm no scientist, I'm a language nerd, but did that make any sense, whatsoever?
I thought the evolutionary rule (hey, if he's using layman's terms, then so am I) said "living creatures adapt to a changing environment, through mutation and natural selection".
Is time not constant? Sure, I'm not certain of the meaning of the term "constant", but it seems to me that time ticks away, second for second, minute for minute, in fairly the same speed and rhythm, all the time.
Oh, well, what do I know?

Stop trying to sound smart, Zapem. You're not very good at it.

"Evolution IS the theory whereby matter + energy + chance chemistry = creation"
Evolution is the theory of change in life over time. All the other stuff was present way before life arose,so it doesn't concern itself with anything but the enviroment of the organism.
It certainly doesn't concern itself with some variable time distortion Zapem the idiot suggests here.
3/10/2010 10:33:58 AM
"Therefore you calculations for time are only in the dimension you find yourself now..."
So Zapem, how many dimensions do you find yourself in during a typical day?

@ ketzu --
The sum would be a quantity expressable in mass-energy units, not a dimensionless constant. Still doesn't have much of anything to do with evolution, though, given that nuclear reactions really aren't a big part of biology.

Quantum mechanics is only a theory.
It gave us transistors so you could expose your breathtaking stupidity for all the world to see.
8/28/2011 11:35:47 AM
Evolution has nothing to do with life coming from nothing; that's an entirely different theory. Evolution only deals with already existing life.

Yum, a pseudo-scientific word salad sprinkled with 7 kinds of nuts!

TBF, anyone who has ever been in an accident, waited for a lover or visited Fresno knows that time is not a constant.
