Evolution theory is built on a set of supernatural doctrines and logical circularises.
Debate Rounds (3)
1) "survival of the gene"
Even supposing that they were like life-forms, genes do not survive. Nothing survives. If the claim is that the pattern of the gene survives then that is transmigration.
2) "survival of the fittest"
There can be no evidence that the "fittest" survive, because those that survive are deemed to be the fittest. As an empirical claim "survival of the fittest" is a logical circularity.
3) species evolve
Species do not evolve. They do not "advance". They die out and others take their place.
4) creatures become adapted to their environment
This is a circularity. Creatures become adapted to a geographical place. They do not become adapted to an environment because an environment is already defined by the needs and behaviours of the creature.
5) consciousness evolved as an aid to survival
This is a supernatural doctrine. Consciousness does not affect matter, unless science can directly measure awareness and show that mind over matter is a possibility.
These represent key ideas in evolution theory; variations on their nonsense permeate the entire evolutionary text.
I will use a similar format to yours as it is easier to read and compare:
All of this is based off of scientific fact that has been proven throughout the years.
The traits that survive are by definition, best suited, and the organisms that survive are, by definition, the fittest. By definition only.
Environment is not geography. Environment is defined by a creatures needs. Geography is not defined by a creatures needs.
Whether or not bacteria can see or taste, seeing and tasting do not affect matter and so cannot be involved in evolution.
Good Luck in the third round.
I know your bacteria example was about consciiousness. And again, I said that consciousness does not affect matter, so cannot be used as an evolutionary force.
Buy a book on basic biology.
Do some research on the topic you are interested in.
Be open to my point of view.
