The Wide And Deep Gaps In Evolutionary Theory

Nature is very complex and very difficult to explain at times, only a foolish scientist would claim he knows it all. But as far as evolution is concern, it’s like walking in a dark cave with no light, you get a feeling of the surroundings, but not quite sure what is actually there if anything. Here is an example of what considered to be the fundamental mysteries of evolution while walking in a dark cave, sort of speak.

“The Bacteria and Archaea are the most genetically diverse superkingdoms of life, and techniques for exploring that diversity are only just becoming widespread. Taxonomists classify these organisms into species in much the same way as they classify eukaryotes, but differences in their biology—including horizontal gene transfer between distantly related taxa and variable rates of homologous recombination—mean that we still do not understand what a bacterial species is. This is not merely a semantic question; evolutionary theory should be able to explain why species exist at all levels of the tree of life, and we need to be able to define species for practical applications in industry, agriculture, and medicine.” —Science

Five scientists from London give us their results as stated above. Many angles were discussed, but none of them had solid conclusions. However, one does find something all evolutionary scientists have in common, after 150 years of Darwinism to Neo-Darwinism, nobody in the scientific community even knows what constitutes a species, let alone trying to explain it’s origin. It’s like they are walking in that dark cave, having no idea what’s in it, but uses one’s imagination to attempt to fill in those spaces (gaps) in the cave.

Scientists have been studying practically every animal known to man for many years now, and it would seem strange they still have no clue to what a species is. You mean to tell me they are no no closer to the answer than Darwin was back in his day? Yes, with all the advancements made in science, they are no closer than Darwin was, but it’s not the only thing, evolutionary scientists also don’t know how much a role natural selection works in all of this or connecting certain mutations that benefits a species in a major way other than some small instances, and scientists couldn’t tell you how speciation is suppose to work.

It’s like the blind leading the blind. But yet we are told, evolution has an enormous amount of evidence, piles and piles of documenation from all over the world, that only an “insane” person would reject or even question it’s validity. But one asks anyway for it’s not insane to do so, Is there one thing in evolution which is solid, absolute, and true, and not a guess?  All what we see in evolution are competing guesses, modified models, controversies, debates, changing definitions with the faith in future research which will supposedly shed light in the darkness of uncertainty but it never does, instead it opens up new pathways (gaps) like in the cave that leads to more darkness. The wide and deep gaps of evolution as we see today as well as in the past, is nothing more than faith based without a foundation.

  1. The quote from Science is about bacteria and archaea species, not just species. It is the bacteria and archaea species which are hard to classify (because the techniques to do this are very recent, as the authors clearly state !), not *all* species.

    This is just the usual ‘there are so many gaps!’ argument by creationists, but now for these bacteria and archaea species. Which you conveniently change to just ‘species’.

    The gaps argument is pretty old, and has been rebuted so many times: just have a look at http://www.talkorigins.org, as usual.
