Just a Thought
I heard a illustration once of how a evolutionist looks at "evidence"
"A Scientest is doing a experiment on a frog, to see how far it can jump. so tells the frog "Jump frog, jump," he jumps 5 feet. he cuts 1 leg off, "Jump frog, jump," He jumps 4 feet. he cuts off another leg, "Jump frog, jump," He jumps 3 feet. so he cuts off another leg, "Jump frog, jump," he jumps 2 feet. so he cuts off it's last leg, and says "Jump frog, jump," it doesn't jump. so he comes to his conclusion, frogs with no legs lose there hearing.

Re: Just a Thought
Welcome to the fray, BanjoBlazer.

I heard a illustration once of how a evolutionist looks at "evidence" ...

As presented by a used car salesman selling you a load of shinola.

The question is whether you bought one truckload for a dollar or two for five dollars.

Now if you want to talk about the real thing, pull up a chair sit down, and forget everything you think you know about evolution.

Then we can start with the evidence and see if the truth jumps out at you.

Until then let me illustrate the difference between a creationist and an evolutionist:

One day a creationist and an evolutionist walked into a bar. The next day the creationist walked back into the bar, and the evolutionist ducked.

Enjoy.

Summary: yes virginia, evolution is science.
Science is based on evidence.

Evolution is based on evidence.

Science proposes a theory that explains the evidence.

Evolution proposes a theory that explains the evidence.

Science tests that theory to see if it holds up.

Evolution tests the theory to see if it holds up.

Science concepts that are invalidated are discarded.

Evolutionary concepts that are invalidated are discarded.

There is nothing in science that is not in evolution, ergo evolution is science.

Enjoy.

Shrinking Sun
This is off topic here. Take it to the thread in the next post

it has been proven that the sun is shrinking at a rate of about 0.1% per century. for a creationist that's no problem, but for a evolutionist, just going back 100,000 years would make the sun twice the size it is now. 20 million years ago the earth would have just came to ground level of the sun. now tell me, how could prime-mates have just been evolving into "humans" Then?

Re: Shrinking Sun
This is a very specific issue and might drag this thread way off topic.

Please read the following thread and post your thoughts there.
Shrinking Sun

You will be asked to actually show the proof of this and supply sources.
You will also be asked to explain why no astrophysicists noticed this issue.
