Before anyone suggests I should be asking this in the science section, it is asked here because it is a claim made because of religious beliefs (in an attempt to discredit science).
An example is Raissa's answer here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...
@'Truth': The evidence supporting evolution gets stronger all the time - NONE of it has been 'debunked'.
@'Ford Prefect': Where's your imagination? ;o)
@'Statick': The question is aimed at people who frequent this section, not scientists/those who actually follow science. @'Pull my finger': Why would I consider you to be an idiot? Seems like you gave a reasonable answer. @'Arnie': Don't you have something better to do with your time than copy and paste rubbish which has nothing to do with the questions you post it on?
@'CRR': The idea that 'origins' are somehow investigated differently from any other science is a creationist straw man.
@'Nosson': Completely incorrect. While things like penicillin and x-rays may be first discovered by accident, it is the subsequent investigation that makes them scientific discoveries - how something is first noticed is not important.
