More evolved?
Reading your posts I get the feeling that you think you are more evolved than today's pond scum or a Chimpanzee.

Guess what?

You aren't!

That much is a fact.

Re: More evolved?
As others have pointed out, "Yes we are not more evolved than pond scum."

Re: More evolved?
What your saying is that everything evolves according to its own purposes and needs, but surely there are degrees of evolution.

No, there are not levels.

Does pond scum think? Does it have speech, self reflection, self awareness, can it investigate the earth and universe?

No but can you float indefinitely on the water, make your food straight from the sun, create oxygen?

Do you think you are better than pond scum? Is that your problem boobie?

Re: More evolved?
Well only living things can be talked about when we are talking about biological evolution.

There is no such thing as more or less evolved, that simply doesn't even make any sense.

Re: More evolved?
We are certainly not as successful as cockroaches.

success
I was measuring success by how long the critter has been around and how it has successfully survived so many changing filters. If someday the cockroach is gone and humans still around, I'm more than happy to change my position.

Not I did not say more evolved, simply more successful.

Re: success
Okay, that is your opinion.

And I'd agree that all of the examples you mention are demonstrably more successful than humans.

Re: More evolved?
Odds are that if they have been educated they can identify each of the different apes including the human ones.

Science not superstition.
It is all assumptive, based on probabilities and will continue to change as it pleases the stance eg chimp human split 4-5myo changed to 6-8my with Ardi.

That is how science works as opposed to Creationist myth and superstition. As new things are learned the Theory changes unlike the Biblical accounts that cannot even be consistent in any descriptions and are only consistent in being factually wrong.

Creationist modelling and assumptions are no worse.

There are no Creationist models.

It really is that simple.

You quote Lloyd Pye????
Good grief.

And you expect anyone to do more than simply laugh at your posts?

Have you really never seen a family tree?

Have you been that sheltered?

Re: Humans in Australia
There are only 2 ways life got here, naturally or by the hand of God.

And there is evidence of nature but no evidence of God.

WOW!

A kind is the initial creation of God and it's decending progeny.

What utter bullshit.

Please list those kinds or bring your little god in to list them for us, otherwise that definition is simply bullshit.

Re: More evolved?
It's not a matter of like or dislike, what you posted has absolutely no informational content, it tells us nothing, it is totally empty and worthless as a definition.

Re: More evolved?
Remember, according to the Bible stories, a dove and a raven are two different "kinds".

The "kinds" idea is just plain ***.

There are human apes alive today.
And all this time I thought that there were human apes alive today, like Mazzie and you and me.
