Ben Fisher riffs on “12 Arguments Evolutionists Should Avoid”. Answers in Genesis created the list of bad arguments. Do you agree? Are these bad arguments that evolutionists should avoid?

#6 was “It’s here so it must have evolved.” You guys said the problem was like “how do we know the sun will rise tomorrow just because it rose today”. That would be the problem of induction. How do we know the future will be like the past? The bad evolutionary argument though is circular reasoning or begging the question. To answer “how do you know evolution is true?” with “because stuff has evolved” is to assume the very thing you’re trying to prove.
Thanks! We’ll mention a correction on the next show.
Subjective assertions, no matter how underlined and bold they are written, are still subjective assertions. I stopped at #1 having arrived at a question: What evidence could be offered a reader in finding a possible reasoned argument by reading further? It’s like saying “Ten plus two equals eleven — because I say so.” I’d rather do the math to solve it than to simply have faith the writer knows how to address these fundamentals at the very least.
