As I've said before, I'm rather agnostic about origins theories. When someone proves something conclusively, do let me know. As of now, the problems of abiogenesis and the Cambrian explosion prevent me from believing evolution as the Darwinists recount it, and, to be frank, the proponents of ID prevent me from believing ID as the IDers typically present it.

So, that said, here are some audio/video links:

    They are called "biologists", not "Darwinists".

    Abiogenesis: there's still no consensus on how the first living cells developed, but that's a separate branch of science. Biological evolution began after the first life appeared. All competent biologists accept the basic facts of evolution because the evidence is overwhelming and the new molecular evidence for evolutionary relationships is extremely powerful.

    There's no problem with the Cambrian explosion. Biologists love the Cambrian explosion. Only creationists, who don't know what they're talking about, claim the Cambrian explosion has problems.

    Biologists will forever be learning about the history of life. They debate HOW life evolved, not WHETHER life evolved. The idea that all life evolved from common ancestors is a scientific fact for the same reason the idea that the earth orbits the sun is a scientific fact. The evidence is equally strong for both ideas.

    ID was invented to disguise supernatural magic to look like science. The biologists were not impressed.

    Stephen Meyer is a dishonest promoter of pseudoscience. He will never admit it, but he's a professional liar for Jesus.

    "When someone proves something conclusively, do let me know."

    Scientists say that nothing in science is proven because it's possible new evidence could require old ideas to be modified or thrown out. However the evidence for some ideas is so massive, they are called scientific facts. The earth's orbit is a scientific fact. Biological evolution is the strongest and most important fact of biology.

    Here's a better video explaining the Catholic position on evolution-
