Letter: Profs have no time to debate creationist

How does evolution, using natural processes and chance, solve the problem of complex information sequencing without intelligence?

To the editor:

Gunther Ostermann mentions Microsoft chairman Bill Gates in his Aug. 23 letter to the Capital News: So Much To Ponder In Figuring Out The Universe.

Software is a set of instructions for a computer program. Gates said in The Road Ahead (1995): “Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.”

Programmers utilize complex codes to create software. The genetic code, which is more sophisticated, controls the physical processes of life and is accompanied by elaborate transmission and duplication systems.

How does evolution, using natural processes and chance, solve the problem of complex information sequencing without intelligence?

Laurence Tisdall is the founder and president of the bilingual creationist organization: The Creation Science Association of Quebec. He holds a master of science degree in micropropagation (McGill University), a bachelor’s degree in general agriculture from Macdonald College (McGill University) and has been published in the peer-reviewed journal HortScience (1988).

Known since 1984 for his talks on biblical creation, Tisdall has participated in 18 debates and presented over 1,000 talks in churches, schools, colleges and universities.

Biology professors from UBCO, UBC, SFU, TRU and UFV were contacted to see if anyone would be willing to debate Tisdall on the topic: “Be it resolved: Biological systems are too complex to have evolved by natural processes such as Darwinian evolution.”

As no professor has come forward, the title of his Sept. 6 talk at the Okanagan College lecture theatre (1000 KLO Road, 7 p.m.) will be: “How to debate an evolutionist and NEVER lose.”

Topics will include: how to organize a debate, what subjects to debate, and answers to the most popular anti-creationist arguments. An actual debate presentation about the “origin of life” will be shown and explained.

Tisdall’s talk is not affiliated with Okanagan College, but sponsored by Creation Kelowna.
