Dawkins is also saying that the gaps are not real. He plainly states that the gaps are due to imperfections in the fossil record.
In other words, he's relying on fossil evidence that doesn't exist. Not very convincing.

[qs=First of all, why do you call "them" Darwinoids? Charles Darwin was but one scientist who happened to originate a theory. [/qs] My understanding is, Charles Darwin's name was originally Charles Darwinoid.
Charles Darwin was but one scientist who happened to originate a theory
He is hardly the Einstein or Edison of Biology! Am I wrong?
Charles Darwin's contribution to science is vastly overrated. He is revered by the atheism-dominated scientific community bcoz he offered a godless explanation for what was responsible for the history of life on earth (post-abiogenesis).
To atheists, Charles Darwin is a saint ... to science, not so much.

Well, not to you, but you didn't understand the reason for the gap to begin with. You think it is some majik boundary evolution cannot cross. From simple minds comes simple foolishness.

Re: Cult Of The Darwinoids:Topic Synopsis
Charles Darwin's contribution to science is vastly overrated.
And yet, you seem totally fascinated by him, you yammer on and on about him, you are obsessed and have DARWIN tattooed across your forehead with curlicues.
All of science recognizes that Charles Darwin, quite eloquently, described a process that explained how new species formed through descent with modification and for the next 160 years many millions of scientists have been scouring the planet, looking inside all the animals and looking inside the rocks, looking inside all the genomes and all the evidence supports the modern Theory of Evolution.
It's funny how much you use Darwin's name, considering what a minor figure you say he is.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

But there are different levels of possession ... a person can be demonically influenced with being fully possessed. Don't ask me how it happens ... no one knows.
And a person can be demonically influenced without being aware that it's happening (I'm sure this is true for many atheists in the world today, who are lacking in the protection of the Holy Spirit).
"Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve" (Luke 22

Satan can "deceive the nations" bcoz he can mess with people's heads.

Our very own dwise1 is one of the EvC members whom I respect and admire.
There's no doubt dwise1 is a very intelligent and knowledgeable chap. He's way smarter than me ... although that's not saying much, since my IQ is only 9. dwise1's IQ could be as high as 50 or even 60 - very impressive.
But very unimpressively, he lacks the intelligence to figure out that the existence of the natural world demands the existence of a supernatural Creator. It's a strange paradox of human nature that the smartest people can also be the dumbest people.
He has a website where he has argued and investigated the claims of Creationists for 37 years.
... a fine testament to his obsessive hatred of anyone who doesn't believe his godless evolution bedtime story.
What many people (especially Authoritarian Catholics and Protestants) would find implausible is the idea that Jesus uses dwise1 to get us to think.
Huh?

If you came face-to-face with Thor, the hammer-wielding god of the Norsemen, do you think you could vanquish him? He's a tough bugger, that Thor.

Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt.
As a lad, after unceremoniously tossing him aside, I took Thor's place in my own fantasies. Had a great time being a god until I vanquished my own godhood to the void. Force of habit.
