Everett: Yes, words mean something! And it seems that too few folks remember their highh school or college 101 course in logic. And more folks ought to actually READ Charles Darwin! Thanks for your good work. Bob

Thank you for your excellent insight into the use of the words "natural selection" and your effective comments regarding the foolish statement in the Time article. Scientists do seem to have a hard time describing these things without the use of words that imply an Actor/Inventor/Builder.
I always learn from your writings.

With regard to The Oxymoron of Evolution , by Everett Wilson: Natural selection is not random. Those organisms survive which are best suited to the environment. There is nothing analogous to dice-throwing here ( mutation, on the other hand, may be random). Of course the term "selection" in this context is metaphorical: all evolutionists since Darwin have known that no person is consciously selecting. "Selection" is merely a convenient brief phrase, like "smart phone."

Simple mathamatics re theism creation: 1 and 1=2. Takes just one word to explain how 2 became 3 and 4 from 1 and 1=2. Incest. Parents in-breeding with children and syblings in-breeding is unlawfull in today's world; un-godly act requiring jail time. 'Bible tells me so' defense won't fly in today's court room.
