"Evolution is dying FAST in the practicing scientific community."

On the contrary, in spite of your capital letters (whatever they mean) the theory of evolution is today going from strength to strength faster and faster as more and more corroborative evidence is discovered and more and more reasonable people find the idea so compelling. Given the enormous developments in the science of genetics, the theory of evolution by natural selection is one of the fastest growing fields of science today.

"The ONLY reason people are still hanging on to it is because they have not yet come up with another alternative to Biblical Creation on origins."

More mysterious capital letters! I reckon they have most definitively come up with more than one alternative to what you said. One alternative in this debate is the theory of evolution. But, you just said they haven't come up with an alternative. Are you saying that evolution is not an alternative? If it's not an alternative does that mean you accept it?

" Most scientists won't speak up on this publicly if they want to keep their funding. But many of them are fast losing their faith in evolution."

Almost all scientists do speak up on this publicly. They have to, if they are to keep their funding, because most of their funding comes from scientific institutions.

"I've been hearing several rumors of some of these scientists searching for an alternative theory. "

I have been hearing several rumours of some of these creationists searching for an alternative theory.

"With medicine, if an alternative to "mainstream" medicine is brought forth, there are no laws that ban such practices from ever being mentioned. They are often frowned upon because of the money involved, but there are no laws banning the practices of natural remedies."

Alternative medicine is a whole different field of gookery, which is gradually, but too slowly being gathered under the control of the law.

"In contrast, the "laws" protecting evolution won't allow ANY competition or alternative theories to be considered. "

There are no laws protecting evolution. It's a scientific theory. There are constitutional arrangements which protect your basic freedoms and rights as a human being, for which you should be grateful. (More upper case histrionics I see)

"Just try to get the well-known fraudulent "evidences" for evolution out of school textbooks and see how quickly people will get defensive."

"evidences" - meaning ? Grammar? Actually rational people don't tend to be defensive. In all USA court cases involving creationism it turns out that the creationists were the defendants (e.g. they were the ones who got defensive).

"We see it happen ALL the time. We don't see doctors screaming bloody murder when someone goes to get acupuncture or use a natural remedy instead of going to them to get a prescription."

More pointless capital letters. We don't see doctors screaming ........ etc etc. Well that's because they are scientists. We do see them advising their patients and the general public, in a quiet, measured way that alternative medicine may not be right for them.

"But we see it all the time when anything that would question Evolution or the "evidences" they depend upon is brought up."

See what all the time? Screaming? I doubt it. Scientists are not generally given to screaming.

"In no other field anywhere in science is anything defended as Evolution is.

Creationism is defended very strongly, but then creationism isn't a field of science so I guess you're right this time.

"It does not act like science, it is not treated as science."

It does not act like a science; apart from the process of collecting data, formulating theories, collecting evidence, testing the theories, making predictions and testing the predictions.

It is not treated as science; except that actually it is treated as science by, amazingly, the scientific community.

"Only a false religion that has no concept of the term "tolerance" acts in such ways."

Well said, but not just false religion (they're all false). Flawed thinking is the real threat to me and to you and to your children and mine and to the future of the world!

Respect and love from the thinker
