It's not that I'm eavesdropping...

... but I'm picking up bits and pieces of a conversation between a philosopher and I'm guessing two evangelicals sceptical of evolution. There have been scientific theories nearly universally endorsed that have turned out to be wrong, they say. And, they add, the transitional fossils just aren't there.

I'm dying to know, which has a better track record by their lights?
(a) Scientific theories contested by religiously motivated sceptics of the day.
(b) Corrections suggested by these same religiously motivated sceptics to the scientific theories of the day.

If science's poor track record is really what's doing the work for them, maybe they should just keep quiet.
