    A student is not a professional, they are in training to become professionals.
    They would rarely even be called such until they've gotten years of experience.

    A scientist is geared towards one category and potentially a few sub categories of science.
    Unless the video is appealing to an actual recognized authority of biological evolution, it's disingenuous.

    Even if God asked you to change your way of life, you won't listen even if you know he does exist?
    But why you have to rebel and not to obey him? what is the wisdom of it?

    It is unlikely in the extreme that a God would do such a thing.

    Speciation is little more than the cummulative effect of small changes in the genotype and phenotype of living beings along many generations.

    It has been observed in many different ways and these days it is made on purpose to breed certain characteristics on plants and animals.

    In the many, many worlds of mythology, there is no singular truth.

    Regarding the scientific consensus, I pretty much trust that scientists know what they're talking about, since I've never once come across a situation wherein if I could test their findings, it's come up short.

    Otherwise, it's still not "the truth", because we'll probably never get to that. It's just the current consensus based on our best observations and calculations.

    An analysis may be scientific, and something may be made or done while informed by current scientific knowledge.

    But I am honestly not sure what you mean by "scientific way" here. Do you mean "non-random", perhaps?

    Put bluntly and arrogantly I put my sense of morality above all else. If a god tells me that I need to do x or y to be saved then I'm very unlikely to do it, with perhaps a few minor exceptions.

    Do you believe that our bodies function in a scientific way? IOW does science involve in the functions of our bodies?

    Science is not a force. It is a method.

    It's the opposite, that's what he's trying to explain.
    Science is explanation based on reasonable and verifiable evidence.

    Deathbydefault is correct. Those phenomena are studied by science and at least in part explained by science, but they are not about science.

    A God is supposed not to be immoral or insane - and if he is, then he should be disobeyed anyway.

    Why, yes. That is why the Theory of Evolution exists in the first place. It has been known to happen since the 19th century.

    I don't think life was meant to be, personally.
