    Hello all,

    This is my first attempt to email ASA. Excuse me if I do it

    After reading several posts, I still have the same question as I did a
    number of years ago. They are :

    1.) Exactly what is the "fact" of evolution (precisely stated)?


    2.) Exactly what is the "theory of evolution" (precisely stated)?

    Everything that I read is so soft and fleshy that one might argue
    forever because the terrain shifts back and forth like the desert in El
    Paso during a windstorm. People like to cite "Darwin's theory" but I am
    yet to see a precise, scientific of that -- which would be acceptable
    today and yet true to Darwin's Theory..

    "Creation science" has the advantage of being more specific. Perhaps
    that is why it is so easy to tear apart.

    In any consistent theory, there must exist true but not provable statements. (Godel's Theorem)
