Unfortunately, there is no science of extrapolation. It is, at best, an art, and a highly fallible art at that.

shrink the whole cosmos backward in time to yield an infinitely hot, dense point

If we agree that chemical reactions

If we agree that chemical reactions

involving simple gases can

produce amino acids in the lab . . then the evolutionary origin-of-life researcher will see no problem in principle

with creating life in the test tube!

[Stanley Millers] discovery gave a huge boost to the scientific investigation of the origin of life. Indeed, for some time it seemed like creation of life in a test tube was within reach of experimental science. Unfortunately, such experiments have not progressed much further than their original prototype, leaving us with a sour aftertaste from the primordial soup.

Microevolution → Macroevolution

If we grant that the current generation of

If we grant that the current generation of

organisms does vary from the previous one . .

. . . I was not prepared to find creationists . . . actually accepting the [peppered] moths as examples of small-scale evolution by natural selection! . . . That, to my mind, is tantamount to conceding the entire issue, for . . . there is utter continuity in evolutionary processes from the smallest scales (microevolution) up through the largest scales (macroevolution).
