Re: Genesis species
Therefore according to the Genesis account there was two races of mankind that began to exist with an indefinite period of existence between them.

Which of the skulls belong to which of the two races, and which are just apes?

Whatever caused the Universe to begin to exist would be God as it would be everything that is, was, or ever will be.

Oh, don't be silly.

Re: Genesis species
You mean you don't believe that the very small, very hot, universe that existed at T=10-43 was the complete universe and everything in it.

If I meant that, don't you suppose I'd have said something remotely like that?

Since there is no reason for that entity to exist it is either God or was created by God.

Oh, don't be silly.

God said "I AM", which I understand to mean all that there is, was or ever will be.

You're a pantheist now?

So where amy I being silly?

You're ignoring the fact that the word "God" has a meaning.

Re: Genesis species
Darwin expected there would be millions of intermediate forms that would be found. When they were not the theory had to be modified.

What a preposterous lie.

Do you ever feel ashamed of yourself?

Re: Genesis species
But he said they would be numerous in all stratas.

Strata. And they are. Look how many we have just for the ape-human transition. You know, the subject of this thread?

Then again I may just be being preposterous.

Yes.

Re: documentary hypothesis and belief
Do you think all people look alike?

Do you think there are any people who look like this?

Final statement?

The fossil record is an instance of real things that actually exist. In short, the fossil record is reality.

Creationists will not discuss reality.

I shall not speculate as to their psychological state, nor entertain conjectures as to whether or not they are frightened of reality.

I shall merely note that they are in fact unwilling to discuss reality; and that they are completely unable to explain it.
