Benefit of the doubt...

I've been doing some reading lately. I think I may have been wrong on some of the things I accepted as true with out adequately checking the facts. I have accepted naturalistic scientific theories based upon some suppositions that aren't entirely substantiated. After some careful contemplation and substantial research I have come to the following conclusions:

1. There are no transitional fossils. Evolution predicts a continuum between each fossil organism and its ancestors. Instead, we see systematic gaps in the fossil record.

2. Complex life forms appear suddenly in the Cambrian explosion, with no ancestral fossils.

3. Radiometric dating gives unreliable results.

4. The radioactive decay of several elements produces helium, which migrates to the atmosphere. There is too little helium in the atmosphere to account for the amount that would have been produced in 4.5 billion years. Escape of helium into space is not sufficient to account for the lack.

5. The cosmos is fine-tuned to permit human life. If any of several fundamental constants were only slightly different, life would be impossible.

These conclusions have led me to the accept that I will have to completely reevaluate my world view. I hope you will all be patient with me as I re-work my thoughts and what I accept as true!

Hi Robert.

I completely understand how you might want to re-evaluate everything you have learned.

At least every year on this date.
