Evolutionary Snobbism

Believers* in biological evolution can be quite snobby and elitist, especially when an Australian spin-bowler believes “we started from aliens”,

Shane Warne’s alien theory of evolution.

You sometimes forget that the sole reason Warne became an international celebrity was he could twirl a ball:

 

SHANE Warne reveals some rather unorthodox views on evolution in tonight’s episode of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here…

“If we’ve evolved from monkeys, then why haven’t those ones evolved?” Warne asks…

“Cos I’m saying: Aliens. We started from aliens… 

“Look at those pyramids… You couldn’t do ‘em. You couldn’t pull those huge bits of brick and make it perfectly symmetrical … couldn’t do it. So who did it?… 

“Whatever planet they’re on out there, they decided that they were gonna start some more life here on earth and study us… Maybe they turned a few monkeys into humans and said ‘Yeah, it works’.”

And maybe after tonight’s episode they’ll conclude it didn’t.

Evolutionists have some difficulty explaining which came first, the chicken or the egg, and even greater difficulty when explaining the evolution of the mammalian eye.

In an unexpected sense the Creationists are closer to the truth than their secular opponents, but sharing with them the far greater problem of explaining how something could be made from nothing.

Monistic idealism doesn’t have these problems.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
