Gem 1:30 said that the universe and the earth were complete in all their vast array which elimiates even micro-evolution from existence and participation in life.

How is that consistent with centuries of observation that life can and does change over time?

for species do not change just the individual whose genes were more affected than someone else's.

Species have long been observed to change significantly over time. That change occurs because some individuals are "more affected" by their genes, in terms of their survival, than "someone else's." That produces a change in species because species are made up of the individuals of that species.

yes i already know about that but 40 years ago it was.

And 2000 years ago "Christianity" was about carpentry. I think it's fair to demand that participants grapple with arguments as they're being made now, don't you think?

all evolutionists are doing is wasting time and money that could be better spent helping people get fresh water, healthier drugs (no side affects) and so many other good things.

The study of evolution, particularly in microbiology, is responsible for great advances in water purification and antibiotics.

Evolution solves problems in biology, it doesn't prevent their solution. That is what creationism does, however, by obstructing a true and unprejudiced view of the natural world that surrounds us. Your own inability to understand even the simplest biological concept (such as "species") is ample evidence of the obscuring power of creationist propaganda.

is it no wonder christians and others do not trust scientists or the scientific method?

Because they're lied to about it, by you and "Erich von Frange"?

it proves that you cannot trust science or its methods

Why do you trust "Erich von Frange"? Be specific.

yes i have and i have also been told by atheists and evolutionists that these giys are not credible.

Most of us are pretty sure you'll tell any lie you need to tell to argue with us, and I think you pretty much just confirmed it. The fact that you accuse us all of lying to you pretty much proves it; projection is the sign of a guilt conscience.

no, such actions are attributed to micro-evolution, and there is no way to prove that process even exists, let alone responsibl;e for the changes that take place.

Sure there is.

It is to do the experiment, which is constructed in such a way that the experiment has only two outcomes, one of which is possible only under microevolution.

If that's the outcome you get, then the experiment proves the existence of microevolution. It's actually quite simple.
