Can You PROVE Evolution?
Dr Joseph Mastropaolo says it is impossible and is willing to wager $10,000 with anyone who claims they can prove evolution does take place and that science contradicts the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis.
He claims, "They [evolutionists] are not stupid people, they are bright, but they are bright enough to know there is no scientific evidence they can give in a minitrial."
"It turns out that there is nothing in the universe [that] is evolving, everything is devolving, everything is going in the opposite direction.", Dr Mastropaolo continues.
Indeed Dr Mastropaolo is not stupid either, he has a PhD in kinesiology and taught biomechanics and physiology at a California university for more than 25 years.
Mastropaolo said that he hopes the trials can improve future debates between evolutionists and creationists by addressing the issue in a legal and scientific way.
The majority of scientists reject creationism, but recent showed that 46% of Americans believed in a literal interpretation of the biblical version of creation. Four states in the US are looking to pass law to allow students to be taught a religious version of creation.
How does this contribute to the science vs religion debate? Do you think Dr Mastropaolo is correct to say evolution cannot be proved? Surely there is will a very quick update if the science is as straight forward as many claim?
