since the thread https://www.xtremepapers.com/community/threads/for-science-students.46132/ was locked i will post information over here

do not bother responding as the purpose of this thread is NOT to discuss but to give you information that is necessary for you to open your mind and to link your school education to the practical world applications and research carried out by scientists

Muzammil ahmad, as requested, also note that TTC lectures are a great alternate to the sometimes boring text since they have the concise lecture notes that go well with the video lectures, enjoy and never stop learning:-

Evolution vs Creationism/Intelligent Design
Muzammil ahmad
this section should answer many other questions/criticisms you might have
Ayesha Asif333 as requested (i have tried to find peer-reviewed research papers that explore/support the claims made by creationists but there have been none to my knowledge, if you do find some post them), do try to avoid posting blogs, etc, they almost never cite their references and if references are cited then they are almost never done properly:-

message number 198 in the link below, the book in it is a better argument by a scientist with a leading role in the Human Genome Project, though not specifically about evolution it is still far better than most of the other Intelligent Design arguments
https://www.xtremepapers.com/community/threads/for-science-students.46132/page-10

and the links in the message # 3 in this thread, i have tagged you and others, i will keep updating the post until the 1000 character limit fills up, this way it keeps things in one place

tag other science students to this by replying to this message, listening to Niel deGrasse Tyson can open your mind a lot, specially if you watch the series Cosmos Space Time Odyssey, the links for that are below, the youtube channel is of the same name but different documentaries, the torrent has the actual series

watch the series of the same name http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2395695/
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVh2-VHDC-xz7A5TageErog
below is the torrent
