    Darwinism is not perfect but it has set the table for all of the research for evolutionary theory during the last century and a half and has thus served a wonderful meal for all people who do not fear reality like the creationists. These anti-science crusaders are little different from the Inquisitionists who maintained that Earth was the center of the cosmos and used the Bible as a science reference. The creationists of today are similar in their fear of true science but are more sophisticated in their attempts to insinuate their version of reality by using pseudo-scientists to promote pseudo-science. Their ignorance is a force of nature in itself.

    Great. Agree mostly, but I was expecting an introduction.

    Welcome though.

    I am new to this stuff and was not certain about the whole introduction thing. Sorry about that. I live in Colorado Springs, CO. am 56 years old and married ( to the same woman!) for 34 years. I love to read and am somewhat knowlegeable about evolution ( about 400- 500 books including paleo, animal psychology, genetics, etc, self taught only) religions 100 books) philiosophy, physics and various others. Have probably read 4000-5000 books in total with about 75% non-fiction). I retired as a boiler operator and worked in this capacity for 23 plus years for the Dept. of Defense. Worked in many other occupations as well but am currently unemp[loyed. Have one married daughter who is an RN, is married but no kids yet. Now that may suck as an intro and when I stumble ( fall and cannot get up) elsewhere in this forum perhaps there is one who will pick me up (?) Am busy looking for work but hope to post often. Thanks for the welcome Kalster!

    One more thing (am having issues here so bear with me) I tried to add a tag but was warned that it must be less than 25 letters and that reeks a bit. I see that you have some of much longer length. How done? if you think it worthwhile to attempt my education in this and any other matter. thanks again for the warmish welcome.

    Don't worry about it. We all have to get used to how forums work at first.

    Nice intro. We can always use someone that is as well read as you on various topics and I'm looking forward to your contributions. Good luck with the job hunting and Welcome again.

    Edit: If you mean signatures, I got mine while the forum was still on other software. The current limit is 25 characters unfortunately. If I could venture a bit of of advice, it might be a bad idea to post your email in the open like that. It might be grabbed by email address leachers and you might get flooded with spam mail. Rather add your mail address in your profile. If you want to talk one on one with members of this forum, you could use the PM (personal message) feature instead. It is much quicker that way.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum. But something is not quite right about this, you start an intro supporting Darwinism and bashing creationism? You also appear to reviving old threads on the forum from 2008 or 2009 with "Darwinism" in the title. Just to point out I don't think theres any creationists on this forum current;y. so you may be wasting your time.

    You may be interested in the threads "Non-Darwinian evolution is on the rise" or "Take on Darwin" lots of evidence against Darwin on that first one! Written by a non-religious non-creationist!

    Who happens to behave in a manner virtually indistinguishable from religious "intelligent design" proponents, as you'll quickly see for yourself, faxRfax.

    forests has allowed his enthusiasm for the wonder of science and what it can reveal about the workings of the world to quite overpower the need for a healthy dose of scepticism and application of the scientific method.

    Welcome.
