huh

you can expect something to happen and it happens, like expecting rain

selection=not random
CaptainCrustacean

Con

Expectation is synthetic, it is a process of your brain which creates it. Expectation is man-made and therefore synthetic.
You cannot make un-expectation, as it is lack of expectation.

I also can expect it not to rain, and it can rain

selection=random
selection=natural

Pro

i dont see a point
CaptainCrustacean

Con

My point is all expectation is, is a form of thought. Thoughts are man-made because you make them, and therefore thoughts and expectation are synthetic.

You cannot make un-expectation, so it is natural.

un-expectation and randomness are extremely similar, so random is also natural.

selection is random, as random selection happens a lot it the real world. This means selection is also natural.

Pro

selection is specified, opposite of random
CaptainCrustacean

Con

Selection can be random. Go on a random number generator online. The selection is random, and not specified.

Evolution is false
1. Name the sentient animal created by evolutionists during experimentation:

Answer #1 here:__________________________________.

2: Must have EVOLVED from microbe to a sentient living air breathing, crawling, walking, flying ,egg producing, reproductive animal :

Answer #2 here:__________________________________.

.... because Sentient creatures ARE the recognized Life on earth. Otherwise it's a bacteria, and while they may be a form of life, not a single example of one ever becoming a creature sentient OR otherwise exists in the History of Science.

Medical Definition of Microbe
Microbe: A minute organism typically visible under a microscope. Microbes include bacteria, fungi, and protozoan parasites.

Not excuses please.

3. Name the scientist and the experiment that SUCCESSFULLY produced that specific sentient Life form.

Answer #3 here:__________________________________.

4. Name a single animal that changed from one species to a completely different species in history that IS 100% proveable!

Answer #4 here:__________________________________.

Like dog to fish, bird to lizard, elephant to flea, ape to Man, pig to dog, must be 100% factual OR it CANNOT BE CALLED TRUE as defined by dictionary.

So are you against evolution or not. Because you have the PRO stance on "evolution" then you say "selection isn't natural" which is just vague enough to not have enough to do with evolution and specific enough to give me the impression that you're against evolution or don't believe it happened.
