Creationist nonsense. Not worthy of a reply.

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

In the name of diversity, college student demands to be kept in ignorance of the culture that made diversity a value--StultisTheFool

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" demands that the US be tolerant of everything except its own past, culture, traditions, and identity.

Re: feed the trolls
Thanks, but I'll "feed the trolls" when the mood strikes me.

I don't come to this site for the politics, you know!

Re: Thread Information is true, but Davidjay's claims are false
But it should be noted that most evolutionists here state that primates ancestor was batsmeaning in their opinion, our further back ancestor is and was bats.

Another lie.

Who do you think you are impressing by lying? Particularly after a mod warning that this was a lie?

Is that all you have, lies?

Re: Missing links
From Wiki:

quote:
The term "missing link" has been used extensively in popular writings on human evolution to refer to a perceived gap in the hominid evolutionary record. It is most commonly used to refer to any new transitional fossil finds. Scientists, however, do not use the term, as it refers to a pre-evolutionary view of nature....

"Missing link" is still a popular term, well recognized by the public and often used in the popular media.[59] It is, however, avoided in the scientific press, as it relates to the concept of the great chain of being and to the notion of simple organisms being primitive versions of complex ones, both of which have been discarded in biology.[citation needed] In any case, the term itself is misleading, as any known transitional fossil, like Java Man, is no longer missing. While each find will give rise to new gaps in the evolutionary story on each side, the discovery of more and more transitional fossils continues to add to our knowledge of evolutionary transitions.[5][60]

Re: Re:Tag, you need a new artist
You need to learn how phylogenies and clades work before embarrassing yourself like this.

Trolls don't need to know anything. They can disrupt (as that's their goal) through ignorance.

Re: Great scientific responses
Why do you suppose Richard Dawkins is unable to explain the begininmg of life in this next clip?

What does the "beginning of life" have to do with the theory of evolution?

The theory of evolution works just fine if:

a) life developed on its own,
b) life was poofed into existence by Thor, Old Man Coyote, or whomever,
c) life was transported to Earth via aliens or microbes from outer space, or
d) some other cause.

In any of these cases, the theory of evolution explains what it is intended to explain.

Origins, which only creationists think is a part of the theory of evolution, is another field entirely.
