But if after awhile all your revisions have failed & you haven't explained anything new then you have a "degnerating research program" & ought to consider abandoning it.

  "If corroboration works in his favor, why shouldn't falsification count against his argument ?"

   

  Hugh Ross would say that is the way science works. If your hypothesis fails, revise it and try again. That's just science- no big deal.

  It strikes me that David's example illustrates one of the major problems with concordist approaches. This year's science is a Reason To Believe. Next year as the science changes, it's a Reason Not To Believe. Given that Hugh has been clearly wrong on a number of scientific issues [he's best when he sticks to astronomy], should he now change RTB to RNTB ? And if not, why not ? If corroboration works in his favor, why shouldn't falsification count against his argument ?

RTB, along with some other advocates of antievolutionary claims, hasstated that it's impossible for one species to arise from anotherspecies without miraculous intervention. Several examples of newspecies being formed in lab and in the wild are known, so it's not atenable position for anyone knowledgeable in the relevant aspects ofbiology, and even some young earthers accept more extensive evolution(not to mention folks like Behe). Thus, it's fairly clear that thebiological aspects are the focus of the present discussion. [snip]
