09:30 Fri - Creation vs Evolution: Religion vs Science or Religion vs Religion?
In this seminar, Dr. Jay L. Wile, a nuclear chemist, shows that the creation versus evolution debate is really a debate between two religions. He shows that from a scientific method point of view, evolution is no more than an unconfirmed hypothesis. This puts it on the same ground as creation, which is also an unconfirmed hypothesis. He then demonstrates that those who believe in evolution have the same essential characteristics as religious believers. In the end, then, he concludes that the whole concept of evolution is a religious one.
