As far as I know, RTB still thinks they have a possible "creation
model."

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,
has
        stated that it's impossible for one species to arise from
another
        species without miraculous intervention. Several examples of
new
        species being formed in lab and in the wild are known, so it's
not a
        tenable position for anyone knowledgeable in the relevant
aspects of
        biology, and even some young earthers accept more extensive
evolution
        (not to mention folks like Behe). Thus, it's fairly clear that
the
        biological aspects are the focus of the present discussion.
