Presuppositional Atheism and Evolutionism, Plus the Human Genome

Today you are getting a 2-in-1.

First, I am going to discuss the fact atheists and evolutionists (I am making a distinction because not all evolutionists are atheists) have their own presuppositions and biases. These are rooted in logical fallacies that attempt to distort honest evaluation of the evidence. Essentially, atheists are right and theists are wrong because the atheists said so. Similarly, evolutionists are right — well, same thing. In addition, they are full of statements of faith, such as, "Evolution is a proven fact", and, "Religious people are full of biases, but scientists simply examine the facts and make conclusions." Sorry to break this to you, but nobody is unbiased.

Further false presuppositions include:
  • Creationists are not scientists
  • Creationism is simple: "Goddidit"
  • Atheists are automatically more intelligent than theists by virtue of being atheists
  • Anyone who denies the proven fact of evolution is a liar
  • Fossils prove evolution
  • Evolutionists have all the evidence
  • Evolutionists are intellectually honest enough to modify their theories when evidence compels them
  • Despite contrary evidence, the DNA molecule did happen by time, chance and mutations
While it would be interesting to dismantle some of the dishonest, emotionally-charged presuppositions of atheists and evolutionists,  I will let you check out the logical fallacies yourselves. Pay particular attention to ad hominem, Red Herring, Poisoning the Well and the Genetic Fallacy. The appeals to emotion are quite evident.

It would be great if disbelievers could set aside their presuppositions, rescuing devices and excuses long enough to hear what creationists and ID proponents are actually saying.

Now things might become a bit confusing. I am going to link to an article that deals with a letter to an organization's site. The letter involves the human genome, and then it goes on to discuss the presuppositions of evolutionists.
