Why do so many religious people with no formal education in any field of science (but especially biology, anthropology, etc) truly believe they can read a smattering of anti-evolution propaganda and be adequately qualified to discredit an entire community of educated individuals who have been professionals in their respective fields for years and decades?
For those who feel that way, what makes you think you can argue with evolutionary scientists on their turf? Do you do this with other professionals in other fields? Ever sidle up to a well-known computer scientist and tell him that computability theory is flawed because you, a layman of average IQ, read an article about algorithms in Cosmo? No, I suspect that you trust he knows his field. After all, you participate in an online forum for exJWs only because people like him learned and practiced the scientific method, which allows them to develop cool technology. How much trust did you invest in the field of science when you purchased your last computer? Cell phone? TV? Camera? GPS unit? Ah, but computability theory doesn't conflict with your cherished subjective beliefs.
Maybe if you don't have experience or education in the field, you should just disagree with evolution on the basis that it conflicts with your faith. That is your best argument: "I can't believe in evolution because that's not what the Bible teaches." Point made. Don't say out of one side of your mouth that talking snakes and virgin births are totally plausible but then from the other side say certain scientific theories don't make sense because [X propaganda].
And I'm certainly not saying we shouldn't question "trusted authorities"... On the contrary, that's exactly what we should do. But the scientific arena is very much about exposing flaws in proposed theories. The method demands rigorous, consistent scrutiny. If you really felt you had something solid to bring to the table, do you think scientists would reject or ignore compelling evidence that the theory of evolution is fundamentally flawed? No. This isn't religion, and science isn't based on faith. If you had sufficient evidence,they would have to accept it and adjust their views accordingly, whether they individually wanted to or not.
