“The self-consistency of the truth, on which all reason is based, is an inescapable and inherent characteristic of reality itself. We do not invent it or derive it, we merely discover it.”
August 30, 2008 — Deacon Duncan
Our creationist detractors charge that evolution is an unproved and unprovable charade— a secular religion masquerading as science. They claim, above all, that evolution generates no predictions, never exposes itself to test, and therefore stands as dogma rather than disprovable science. This claim is nonsense. We make and test risky predictions all the time; our success is not dogma, but a highly probable indication of evolution’s basic truth.
[Stephen Jay Gould, Dinosaur in a Haystack]
