wegs, Does there have to be ''alternative explanations''? I just see them as different explanations of the same evidence. I don't think there needs to be an ''alternative explanation''. What point would that be? Why is darwinian evolution so important? What are your reasons for accepting the darwinian explanation of the evidence? And finally why is it an either/or situation. I could easily just say ''yes, the majority of scientists say they accept evolution, so I should also accept it on that basis'', but what good is that to me. I'm no further to knowing the actual truth. I don't accept the explanations, because they don't make sense to me, and I'm not the type of person who accept things because others do. I cannot accept Whale evolution, it just seem preposterous to me, especially when I see it in film format. If it's true, then it will find a way to connect, as any other truth does, but I'm not going to force myself to believe it because everybody else does. You're talking about choices we make. I'm talking about your natural bottom line position, regardless of whether you are aware or not. That does not answer the question. I want to know why you personally accept it. There must be some experience that occurs revealing something that makes it acceptable to you. How does darwinian evolution work for you, in your life? Is it an important revelation? If so how? jan.
