Scientists who are working on the Extended Synthesis ES seek to add a number of other mechanisms to explain these macro-evolutionary changes. This suggests that the processes are not fundamentally the same as Nye claims.
To be clear, this is not an issue about evolution happening the truth of common descent but the details as to how. Nye genuinely underestimates the severe problem associated with materialistic sce- narios to the origin of life. The issue is a seemingly unresolvable problem for reductive materialism since functional information as required for a replicating system transcends beyond the material medium in which it is embedded.
Nye downplays the real issue at stake and meanders in mostly irrele- vant discussions revolving around viruses that miss the mark. Nye expresses concerns with the influence evolution deniers can have on their chil- dren and the future progress of scientific advancement in the USA From a history and philosophy of science perspective I find this argument interesting.
As a matter of heuristics, assuming design creationism in certain instances can be more fruitful than not. For example, the junk DNA hypothesis by Francis Crick in assumed a trial and error process through natural selection and random mutation but led biologists down blind alleys.
Steven Fuller, a sociologist and philosopher of science, has made the point that scientists that see the universe and biological systems as the result of purposeful design are more likely to resolve difficulties in science.

It describes any system in which things compete with each other for resources, whether those things are microbes in your body, trees in a rain forest, or even software programs in a computer. It is also the most reasonable creation story that humans have ever found.
When religions disagree about just creation, there is nothing to do but argue. When two scientists disagree about evolution, they confer with colleagues, develop theories, collect evidence, and arrive at a more complete understanding. Every question leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself.

Evolution goes a long way toward answering the universal question that ran through my brain as a kid, and still does: Where did we come from? It also leads right into the companion question we all ask: Are we alone in the universe? Today, astronomers are finding planets rotating around distant stars, planets that might have the right conditions for supporting life.
Our robots are prospecting on Mars looking for signs of water and life.

When we go seeking life elsewhere, the whole idea of what to look for, and where to look for it, will be guided by our understanding of evolution. Such a discovery would be profound.
Proving that there is life on another world would surely change this one. The great questions of evolution bring out the best in us: our boundless curiosity, and our boundless ability to explore. After all, evolution made us who we are. I very much hope you make it through this chapter. I did not mention anything about The Bible. I had no reference to Jesus from the city of Nazareth. But I was, and remain, concerned about the extraordinary claim that Earth is extraordinarily young, which is an assault not just on evolution but on the whole public understanding of science.
Having a few thousand people make use of a few million dollars to promote their point of view is not unusual. This is actually what a great many not-for-profit organizations do, including the Union of Concerned Scientists, the National Center for Science Education, and my own Planetary Society.
Such an idea is laughable and could be easily dismissed were it not for the political influence of these groups.
In general, creationist groups do not accept evolution as the fact of life. They want everyone else in the world to deny it, too, including you and me. Inherent in this rejection of evolution is the idea that your curiosity about the world is misplaced and your common sense is wrong.
This attack on reason is an attack on all of us. Children who accept this ludicrous perspective will find themselves opposed to progress.
Not only that, these kids will never feel the joy of discovery that science brings. They will have to suppress the basic human curiosity that leads to asking questions, exploring the world around them, and making discoveries.
They will miss out on countless exciting adventures. It breaks my heart. I got the chance to write this book after expressing my concern about the future of the U. I pointed out that without young people entering science fields, especially engineering, the country will fall behind other nations who do educate their kids in real science rather than the pseudoscience of creationism.
Subsequent to that, I was challenged to a debate by Ken Ham, an Australian-born evangelical leader who has managed to oversee the construction of an amazing building that he calls the Creation Museum in Kentucky.
His organization is called Answers in Genesis.

He claims that his interpretation of The Bible is more valid than the basic facts of geology, astronomy, biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and especially evolution. After a few months of mulling it over, I agreed to go to the Creation Museum and take the guy on head-to-head, or lectern-to-lectern.
I chose to participate in this debate to raise awareness of the creationist movement and its inherently deleterious effects on our society, as it dulls our resolve to tackle big scientific challenges like producing energy for the burgeoning human population.
We were each given time to make our case before the audience. Ham holds to a fascinating pair of doublespeak phrases: observational science and historical science.
So for him, anything in the fossil record is subject to question. For him, any astronomical observation is automatically irrelevant, because the stars are older than any person that could have observed them.
Perhaps a mischievous deity put them all there in a flash.
Using the word science in these Orwellian ways is unsettling. As a science educator, I also find this practice deeply irresponsible. When it was my turn, I hammered away at Mr. By the way, neither The Bible nor Mr. Ham offers any insight into the fate of every surface-dwelling plant during this supposed episode.
I could not help but point out that the Creation Museum building sits atop millions of years of limestone layers. The famous landmark Mammoth Cave is right there in Kentucky not far away.
On the way to the event, I had no trouble finding a piece of limestone with a small shelly ancient sea creature fossil clearly visible. It was just off the shoulder of Interstate I showed the audience photos of the Grand Canyon, including the striking Muav limestone, the Temple Butte formation, and the Red Wall limestone.
They are million, million, and million years old, respectively. Clearly there were three different spans of time during which these three very-different-colored deposits were formed.
I made the significant paleontological point that in each of these strata, there exist certain fossils that are specific to that time. Impressions of creatures like trilobites that lived in the more distant past are found in the lowermost layers. Creatures like ancient mammals that lived in the most recent times are found in the topmost layers.
And creatures that lived in between are found in the in-between layers. There is no place, not one single example, of a fossil from one layer trying to swim its way up into a more recent deposit. If there were a great flood and every living thing was drowning all at once, we would expect one of them somewhere to be caught trying to save its life.
There is not one instance of this in any stratum anywhere on Earth.
If you find one, you will turn science on its head. You will be famous. Believe me, people are looking. Early in my presentation, I talked about the ice cores, long cylinders of ice extracted by researchers from ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, especially.

Others try to push it aside or dilute it by casting doubt on the established science that supports it. Darwin realized that breeding and domesticating plants and animals involves exactly the same process that occurs naturally in evolution, only accelerated with the help of humans.
Nye wastes no time in tackling and discrediting the misinformation campaign of creationism, sometimes known as Intelligent Design, and laying out crystal clear details to illustrate the scientific reasoning in support of evolution while also punching many holes in the claims made by Ham and his disciples.
Belinda Recio. No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Inherent in this rejection of evolution is the idea that your curiosity about the world is misplaced and your common sense is wrong.
You will be famous. He realized that if humans could turn wolves into dogs, then new species could come into existence by the same means naturally. This is in stark contrast to creationism, which offers a static view of the world, one that cannot be challenged or tested with reason.
