Re: HYPOCRISY
In other words you're trying to compare apples and oranges. The lineage of individuals is not the same as the lineage of species.

My accusation of hypocrisy was rhetorical.

You are busted.

You have no integrity.

Re: HYPOCRISY
Hi Willowtree,

In a short span of time you've impugned one member's integrity in one thread, and now you raise the accusation of hypocrisy in this thread. If you can't play nice with the other children and follow rule 3 of the Forum Guidelines you won't be allowed to play here anymore.

Re: HYPOCRISY
Admin:

I simply pointed out that a break in a chain in one subject refutes the claim but in another it does not.

If true is this not hypocrisy ?

Is a charge of hypocrisy against the Rules ?

If it is I will not level the charge and notify Admins when someone else does it.

WT

Edit:

If I am being racked for not being nice then I apologize.

Re: HYPOCRISY

Mangy Tiger is an evolutionist arguing that the British Royal Crown MUST not contain a single break in the lineage OR the claim is refuted.

Now in this thread you evos assert the opposite.


Where did anyone argue that a break in the Royal Line does not refute the claim?

The only issue is macro evolution - one species evolving into another.

The formation of new species has been observed.

Toe number of protocetids.
Whales as well as protocetids had 5 toes. Hippopotamus has only 4 toes like all other eventoed ungulates. That would be an argument for creationists.

The evolutionary explanation would be a mutation that reactivated formation of the fifth lost toe in the ancestor to whales and protocetids after they split from the hippopotamuses. Or is it the case that the fifth toe actually hasnīt been completely lost?

Lineage argument is wrong tack
The argument that a complete lineage must be shown to prove evolution is a specious argument. Several responses to this msg have demonstrated the difficulty of finding the lineage; however, the real proof of evolution is that evolution is a process which is readily observable and which we now understand suffienctly well to know how it works (mutations due to DNA copying errors when cells divide). Knowing how the evolutionary process works allows us to see how life evolved. The fact that there are "gaps" is equivalent to the problems geneologits have when birth and death records are destroyed during fires or other calamaties. But the lack of a complete geneological record doesn't bring into question the fact that members of a family had parents.
