The Evolution Of Nonsense.

Before I start this criticism of a particular scientific theory let me qualify my position. I firmly believe that research is both highly commendable and in most cases, necessary, but waffle is waffle, no matter how many letters there are after a name.

When I was very much younger I took an avid interest in biochemistry. The study of physics and my chosen preference, chemistry are similar in that they rely on proven facts. If one adds quantum mechanics to the pair the facts become more interesting and often, more provable.
However, in the study of human evolution only on one point can the three agree. A tenuous point at best.

There was, in scientific parlance, a RARE event that changed fish into walking animal. No branch of science can explain that RARE event.
That’s why I write fiction, I can make it up as I go along.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.

    It’s always interesting to see different points of view, I’m thankful for evolution, considered nonsense or not, as it provides a different perspective to shifts in life, especially when inconceivable circumstances present themselves. I have noticed this phenomena in art, music, history & writing books. The evolution propels us to see a certain event as either a catalyst or anabolic event. We in the end decide it’s meaning & furthermore label. Your story of overcoming an moment in life & the ability to turn that chapter into more than one, essentially creating fiction & poetry is evolutionary in nature in my perspective. I have learned that change is the only constant & we decide the change & ultimately live in the outcome if that change.

    I totally agree with you, chika2b. My disagreement lies in the Origin Of Species and the various theories surrounding our transformation from a single cell organism into human life.
    One cannot prove a negative yet certain strains of science will present ideas as facts, attempting to obliterate the belief in God as the creator.
    I cannot prove my belief, but nor can science prove evolution!
