Darwinian evolution gets peer reviewed!!!

More and more scientists have come out against Darwinian evolution stating: "We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selec...

Found this interesting on Youtube. Anyone have any information about the contents of this video?

A couple of thoughts that struck me. In college they teach cutting edge and anything the instructor wants. They are usually masters or Ph d level in the area discipline they are teaching. In High School you could have the PE teacher teaching science. Or someone with a BS who doesn't keep up to date. So the curriculum is set by a board. It isn't cutting edge. It's an overview or what is established. Science in High School is not about critical thinking, it's about getting a general grasp of the world.

I also love how the Discover Institute is no longer advocating teaching ID. Lee Strobel has books on it. Who the hell are they lying to?

Lee Strobel is full of shit!

Huge fail by the PhD right off the bat. He thinks ID is scientific. Its not and thats why it failed at Dover, its just creation science in a new wrapper.
There's a lot of debate in any healthy scientific theory..... Shit thats what puts natural..(not random) selective pressure on the theory to evolve. We know a lot more about evolution today then Darwin did when he first proposed it. He didn't know about gene's or DNA.
I say lets teach the evolution of the theory of evolution and what findings have changed the theory and how it is 'evolving' today.
Its one of, if not THE single most important scientific theory we have.. It should be given more time in school.

Another fail... The first thing the guy says is he's got 300 scientists from Ivy League schools to sign this thing...and then he turns around and says 'numbers aren't an issue in science'? Why mention them as if they are? There's another thing he failed to mention... What field these 300 scientists were from.

Religion is the PRIMARY if not the ONLY reason the theory is opposed. But all I have to say is.. if you don't like the current theory come up with another scientific theory that answers the questions better than evolution does to take its place. Its that easy.

So quit whining about it and get to work you wussbags!

Science is NOT going to change without evidence....

Of course all claims about evolution must be "peer reviewed." But by that we mean it must be reviewed by REAL scientific reviews... i.e. other biologists.
Sorry "Dr." West, but religious bullshit advocates don't qualify for peer review of a scientific theory or anything proposed about that scientific theory.
You religious morons stay on YOUR side of the wall of separation, and we'll stay on ours.

Secondly, no REAL scientist who knows ANYTHING about evolution would EVER call it Darwinism! - Red Flag anyone?

Also, a PhD doesn't necessarily mean intelligence. It could just mean book skills, or cheating, or being given a pass at a religious "college" to be one of their "front liners." True intelligence is measured by the ability to understand and critique what you hear and know. True scientists try to DISPROVE their own ideas.

I think the texturing on the cg human interviewer is remarkably lifelike, but in terms of gestures, mannerisms and human intelligence, I found the chubby kid from 'Up' to be a far more realistic representation of a human being. Also, his scripting is even worse than that awful haircut they gave him.

As for the Rev., pat on the back. A minister, but also the executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State!
