"Stellar and planetary evolution".
By all means, disprove.
Stars are born every day, and Hydrogen can become Helium.
Note evolution is a biological science and should be judged as such. In the range of "hardness" the theory of evolution is harder than most accepted "facts" in the medical sciences. In fact the cumulative evidence for evolution is overwhelming. The genetic evidence alone brings the certainty to well above 90%, and for common descent close to 100%. To bring evolution to a level of certainty equal to creation you'd have to argue that a creator deliberately designed a hugely complex false trail in order to deceive, in which case -I take my hat off, he certainly fooled me.
To see evolution in action you only need to look at River Guppies: proof in front of our eyes. Note that evolution can occur relatively rapidly, as many expressed genes often have multiple unexpressed alternatives in an individual. With a change in enviroment or availability of a new niche a species is able to immediately respond by favouring individuals that are expressing adaptive alternative genes.
Is the proof complete. Not yet. But what field of science is a finished work. Whilst creationists work very hard to expose gaps (often where there are none, -as in many or most instances of irreducible complexity) it is very weak to hold those gaps as proof of creation. That's just Gappism.
Whilst I agree that religion is in the way of science, it is also true that science is in the way of religion.
Science can provide explanations for mysticism, as mysticism is term for "lack of understanding" imo.No, Philosophy does that. We have no use for mysticism.
However, if I say that "God exists because he answered my prayers", it is a valid statement that may or may not be true based on perception and our limited understanding of the existance of afterlife.
Logic dictates there are both true and false validities.
For the person next to him, someone punched someone else on the face.
For the person next to them, some guy hit that guy.
Next to them something happened over there.
I was on the other side of the room and saw it all officer, the guy with the bleeding nose tried to headbutt Taurkon.
Truth is subjective to perception.
The fact that you punched a guy in a bar is totally true only for you, the rest call it as they see it.
In the realm of spirit, seek clarity; in the material world, seek utility
Then one naturally can play semantic games with "guy" and "punch".
And one can deny the existence of anything material, assuming one is a brain in a tank full of liquid, dreaming the world.
