What, no evidence of bat fossils?
i have not said there are no bat fossils…....
Would you say bats have been around for longer than 6000 years?
Anyway, the whole point of evolution is that anything possible in physics will be tried by nature.
I didn’t know that nature had that goal.
Nature has no goals. That is a human trait. But in a dynamic environment, time is a great experimenter.
Radar (sonar) is but one of many ways of processing wave frequencies for hunting purposes. Whales communicate with low frequency sound waves. Flies can see well into the infra red spectrum, other species can see ultraviolet. Birds flew long before man. A homing pigeon uses the earth magnetic fields to navigate. Fish swam long before man returned to submarine environment, hominids descended from trees long before man walked city streets.
which shows the fantastic intelligence of the creator. Man needed thousands of years to find out about these things, with all its intelligence. And the solutions applied in nature are far more well elaborated , and complex.
Wow, man needed thousands of years to find out about the way the universe has functioned for 14 billion years? Actually, the first few thousand years all unexplained events were miracles from the gods. Modern science has been around for a few thousand years, yes. So our limitations lets us to conclude that only a god could have given birth to this universal construct.
This is where Scripture fails. It assigned divine intervention to the most mundane of physical interactions such as the formation of a perfect order of elements. But rather than irreducible complexity, everything can be broken down to smaller parts, each of which has its own and earlier version independent of the whole assembly.
thats a unfounded claim, without evidence whatsoever. What amazing faith you have….
Well, actually it was proven in a court of law no less. The court sided with scientific evidence.
It is all mathematical and the only problem is that science only recently has acquired the ability to process massive amounts of data and explain the heretofore “miracles from god”, such as the existence of curved spacetime. If anything would fall under the auspices of god it would be spacetime curvature, no? God is gravity? God is chemical interaction? God is supernova?
no. I believe God is just the creator of all this. And it makes sense to believe so. How otherwise can it be explained rationally, that for example the gravitational force constant is finely tuned to a razors edge ?
gravitational force constant
if larger: stars would be too hot and would burn up quickly and unevenly|
if smaller: stars would be so cool that nuclear fusion would not ignite, thus no heavy element production
Of course all these things are true for this universe. Why do you insist on a larger leeway than that exists? Whith different constants the universe would have been different, if at all. But that doesn’t prove “intent”. It did take a long, long time, is that so that dynamic interactions “in accordance with natural constants for this universe” produced this very universe. Yep, undeniably so.
Supernatural sentient intelligence. Will you defend the knowledge of the existence of Xenu?
Bats, bah, bats are nocturnal and live in very restricted areas (caves) which does not allow the formation of a fossil record. When they die they fall into their own waste, which is highly acidic and tends to break down living organisms. No wonder there are no bats preserved in daylight locations such as other species. But then, there are millions of species which left no trace of their entire existence. We don’t even know they did exist.
So therefore the evolution theory is true. no kidding….
No, unlike your argument (god of the gaps), the argument for evolution does not depend on the citation of a single nocturnal species, but on an overwhelming amount of demonstrable evidence in tens of thousands of other species where the divergence of world lines in adaptive survival traits and behaviors was clearly traceable.
