Invalid Extrapolation Is Often Used To Promote Lies

 

Invalid Extrapolation:

The practice of claiming that certain facts can be extended to prove something that the facts cannot prove.

Examples:

Statement

Why is this a lie?

Scientific method has solved so many problems. Eventually, it will be able to prove that evolution is a fact.

This falsely assumes that something that is true in one area will be true in another. It assumes that, because observation and deductive logic have worked to produce, for example, an electric motor, that it can also prove that a lie is true.

Variations in beaks of finches can be extrapolated as proof that small changes add up to create new kinds of plants and animals and proof of a common ancestor for all living things.

This assumes that a trend could continue though there is no evidence that it could. It also ignores the fact that the variations always stay within strict limits-that they are cyclical.

The strong tend to survive and the weak tend to die off, so this "natural selection" helped the original first cell to form.  Mutation adds information and "natural selection" selects the fittest.

Before there was a self-replicating cell, there would be no possibility for anything like a "natural selection" process to operate.  Also, natural selection plus mutation cannot possibly add information to anything, but Evolutionism needs a way to add information to the genome by natural processes.

Uniformitarianism is a fact of science.

This assumes that everything has always continued as it does now.

Small variations are micro-Evolution and these small changes add up to big changes eventually changing frogs into princes.

We can easily observe the wide range of variations within kinds of living things, but we have absolutely no evidence that would support those small changes adding up to molecules-to-man evolution.  Any such claim is a religious claim of the Evolution Religion.  Such a claim violates the laws of science so it is neither scientific nor natural.  It is a supernatural claim.

In addition, every observed variation (deceptively called "micro-evolution") is actually a loss of universal information, the kind of new, innovative information that would need to be added for each tiny imagined evolutionary step toward more complexity. (See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. (See Basic and Concise Guide to Practical, Useful Logic and Reasoning). God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.
