Is a genesis via evolution provable?

Posted by: Deathbydefault

Does evolutionary theory provide enough evidence to explain the origins of life on earth, or the creation of homo-sapiens?

  • Yes, evolution has enough evidence.

  • No, evolution does not provide enough evidence.

  • This question is very poorly phrased. I'm going with "yes" based on what I assume the questioner means to ask. However, evolution explains the diversity of species, not the origin of life. That's a different branch of biological science which hasn't yet been hammered out as completely as biodiversity has. However, yes, there is *tons* of evidence, all of which clearly demonstrates that not only humans but all species evolved.

  • The origins of life, no. But the evaluation that lead up to homo sapiens, yes.

Evolution deals with the diversity of species not the creation of life.

Yes but by detailing the diversity of species it also explains how they came to be, which can be considered an explanation on the creation of life.

What's with all the Creation vs Evolution polls?

This isn't a religious debate thing Uther, or at least I don't intend it to be. I simply wanted to obtain whether or not evolution has uncovered enough evidence to validate whether or not it can explain the creation of life on our planet. I'm not trying to provoke a religious discussion, just a wholly scientific one.

Evolution only claims to have started after the emergence of life. The formation of self-replicating molecules from chemical processes is not necessarily part of it.
