Should be Flat Earth Hypothesis. Same goes for most "theories" involved with Flat Earth.

Just like evolution.

From this point forward all theories shall now be call hypotheses.

Sorry, but no. A hypothesis is a testable belief. Evolution is a theory, which is a tested, proven, and not unproven belief (If there is evidence to the contrary, it is not a theory).

 "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree."

So how many times have you posted that quote-mined piece here before? Five, six times?

Intellectual dishonesty is not very becoming Wardogg.

Wardogg is just another hardcore conservative ideologue with as much credibility as New Earth but less entertainment value. A sad combination, indeed.  :'(

I don't consider that Darwin quote a quote-mine. Darwin did give some fleeting possible explanations for the evolution of the eye in his paragraph after that one, but he still said that quoted paragraph none the less.

Here's the full quote:

    "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.

    Yet reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a perfect and complex eye to one very imperfect and simple, each grade being useful to its possessor, can be shown to exist; if further, the eye does vary ever so slightly, and the variations be inherited, which is certainly the case; and if any variation or modification in the organ be ever useful to an animal under changing conditions of life, then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, can hardly be considered real."

Notice the last line: can hardly be considered real

I think the "can hardly be considered real" was referring to the "difficulty of believing".

I stated it was a quote mine because Wardogg posted it as to undermine the validity of Evolution, by acting as though even Darwin believes it is ludicrous, when in fact the quote in-context shows that Evolution would seem ludicrous to those that misunderstand evolution. The example he gives is a full functioning eye magically appearing in one generation.

I am impressed by your wisdom, and am truly sorry if you saw their arguments as harassment.  I understand that some people can't handle spirited debate, which unfortunately is what people seem to constantly want to engage in here.

If you compare my time here to total time online, I only spend about 6% of my day here. That is like a hour and a half a day.

I spend so much time here! It is like a second job!

A mod should give New Earth a stern warning about this harassment I am receiving from him.

Don't worry about it. He already gave me a warning. I insulted you one time and your friend Roundy threatens to ban me, you insulted me since the very day I came here and nothing is being done about you. Fuck that shit. You don't need to ban me cause I won't be back.

Quote from: Merriam-Webster
ob?serve
a : to watch carefully especially with attention to details or behavior for the purpose of arriving at a judgment
b : to make a scientific observation on or of

ob?ser?va?tion
a : an act of recognizing and noting a fact or occurrence

I observe transitional fossil species, therefore I observe (evidence of) evolution.
