    Naturalism is the belief that every phenomena that exists in nature is the product of natural processes. Science on the other hand is the knowledge about these phenomena and processes gained through observation and experimentation. The beauty of science is that we can test whether naturalism is a valid belief. The first instance of testing is biology, where we compare scientific knowledge about the phenomena called living organisms with the naturalistic belief that they originated from the original very simple life form through the natural processes of mutations, selection and genetic drift. Scientific knowledge contradicts this naturalistic belief since selection and drift are merely mechanisms for increasing or decreasing the frequency of preexisting genes in the gene pools of the populations and as such they are unable to explain the origin of these genes. Natural process of mutations is also unable to explain the origin of genes since the total numbers of mutations in the history of life - 10^43 is 767 orders of magnitude insufficient to explore the sequence space of only one average eukaryotic gene (10^810). IOW, due to the enormous lack of mutational resources it is impossible for adaptive/functional/selectable gens to enter the gene pool of a population. The second instance of testing is physics and chemistry where we compare scientific knowledge about the behavior of natural processes with the naturalistic belief that these processes ... (continued)

  • Can Homosexuality Be Common?

    Best answer: The genetic implications of homosexuality are not well understood by the scientific community; however, just as any other trait may be hereditary, e.g., hair color, athleticism, intelligence, etc., it may be possible for homosexuality to be hereditary to a degree. Fun fact, 10% of all sheep are homosexual or... show more
    Best answer: The genetic implications of homosexuality are not well understood by the scientific community; however, just as any other trait may be hereditary, e.g., hair color, athleticism, intelligence, etc., it may be possible for homosexuality to be hereditary to a degree. Fun fact, 10% of all sheep are homosexual or bisexual; but again, we don't know where it stems from.

Inbreeding causes diversity interbreeding promotes homogeny dont tell me red foxes in florida mate with foxes in canada? It doesnt make any sense there should be more diversity among groups.... I dont know what im trying to say but there are x number of foxes in the world and only a handful of types of foxes when there should be hundreds of different types right? I understand bad mutations cause extinctions and theres only so much space but youre telling me that mutations dont create separate groups of different looking foxes.... Maybe im not factoring for time or something but something is definintely strange about the animal kingdom. X fox is more likely to breed with an X fox than an X(mutated) fox but if x(m) breeds at alll then its offspring enter the populatiins gene pool at some point a mutant fox would produce a dominant gene ? Groups would diversify dijdjdjjsjsjjffjdjddkdk so confusing djdsjssjdjd

    ...the structural landscape of the existing ones? Evolution theory is based on the fundamental premise that genes which code for new structures that provide new biological functions, arise through duplication and modification of pre-existing genes. But, given the high level of mutational neutrality, where a mutation changes the nucleotide sequences of a gene without altering the structure it codes for, even if all the mutations in the history of life(10^43) are spent this might be insufficient to alter the underlying structure which provides some biological function. For example, lets look at this paper: Functional Proteins from a random sequence library(1), which comes up with an estimate of 10^91 different structures having ATP binding function. Such an enormous structural landscape clearly shows that even with all evolutionary mutations spent, the evolutionary process is stuck and it cannot proceed towards new structures, let alone specific or adaptive structures which are beneficial in the environment where the population currently exists. If we add to that a mutation rate of about 10^-8 mutations/bp/generation, where a 100,000 mutations must be spent just to produce one mutation in a specific 1000 bp DNA region(where some new gene 'evolves'), one obvious question emerges: how could evolution produce new structures like organs and organ systems?

    Best answer: Hormones stimulate the development of the mammary glands. It has been known that in some countries, hormones used in raising chickens have resulted in the early development of breasts in some children. That is one factor. Another factor is that people from different parts of the world may have delayed puberty, meaning that they begin maturing later. That means their mammary glands may develop at an older age. Such delay is called neoteny, which is scientific term for retaining juvenile traits in the adult. Humans relied on neoteny to achieve a larger brain size than apes, since young apes have larger brain to body weight ratios than adult apes. Therefore people who have a delayed onset of puberty can actually grow a larger brain.

    A third factor is obesity. Women who are fatter will have larger cup sizes. For example, Russian and Scandinavian women average a D cup because they live in cold climates and they have evolved more subcutaneous fat to stay warm. Women from the tropics cannot afford to have too much subcutaneous fat because they will then be more susceptible to heat stroke. Women from African countries and Asian countries have an average cup size of B. Lastly, some teenage girls are actually getting implants. That is a disturbing trend.

    If abiogenesis is real science then how may it be falsified in principle? It seems that scientists could look for plausible paths for abiogenesis from now until forever, come up empty handed, and continue to claim that any question of its legitimacy is nothing but an argument from incredulity. How convenient. Abiogenesis 'research' has everything to win and nothing to lose. So how can abiogenesis be falsified? What prevents it from being a hypothesis that cannot die and with its immortality its eternal eligibility for research grants?
