Flat Earth Debate / Evolution
« on: November 21, 2011, 02:44:11 AM »
Q: "How is it that the Earth does not have a gravitational pull, but stars and the moon do?"

A: This argument is a non-sequitur. You might as well ask, "How is it that snakes do not have legs, but dogs and cats do?" Snakes are not dogs or cats. The Earth is not a star or the moon. It does not follow that each must have exactly the properties of the others, and no more.

This argument has no consequence. Snakes do not have legs because they don't need legs to function. Evolution does not apply to abiotic features of the universe, which includes celestial bodies.
Unless of course, you decide to bring religion into the mix. "God created snakes that way and simply 'decided' that these things would be like that". Of course, there is no conclusive evidence of the existence of a God or otherwise.
Assuming that no-one manages to prove the existence of God or uses the argument "Why don't YOU prove that God DOESN'T exist?", several arguments FES is based upon rely on assumptions.
Of course, feel free to "counter argue" as it may well be.
