I already have 5 children with one wife, that will do for now!
C'mon, you know the theory of a gravitional field is a different type of thing than something like the theory of evolution. Gravity is a very specific principle, I can test it fully in action by dropping an apple for instance. While we can look at the supposed individual processes of evolution in this same way, i.e. gene mutation, adaptation, etc. it seems like we create a whole other category of "theory" when we say these processes result in some process we call "evolution" which results in an ape becoming man. Isn't the difference between the theory of "gravity" and the theory of "evolution" that "gravity" is a physical law that can immediately be observed, i.e. an apple falling, while "evolution" is a more general theory or field of study that tries to explain how a bunch of observable individual theories like mutation, adaption, etc. result in the evolution of species? Isn't "gravity" an actual true observation, i.e an apple falling, and "evolution" is more of a prediction, i.e. gene mutations, adaption, etc. were responsible for life crawling forth from mud and we call this prediction "evolution."
Also, a thought I had pondering all this. Is the only way that an evolutionist can have faith that God "created" is to say God "tuned" the universe so that when these billions of random mutations began to occur some of them would result in the evolution of life? But since mutations are completely random and rarely beneficial, does this mean that as an evolutionist you believe God still left creation to some sort of chance? Otherwise, why do you need God, why do you need to believe God "created", etc. Of course, that's faith isn't it, something that takes over when reason fails us.
you will survive past the age of 40 and have 12 wives, 67 children and 1297 gradchildren!
Well, yes, the whole story about the "vertical descent" is a theory, not an observation. But so is the theory that there exists an electromagnetic field or a gravitational field. And people somehow don't blast physicists for using these terms, or measuring the potential energy of these "fields."
Thank you. I'll be happy to meet. Doesn't God, indeed, work in mysterious ways?
