Ah, the ol' "bog-standard creationist fails at mimicking neutrality" ploy. Yah, you'll get piled

Australopitacus was just an ape. Pongo pygmaeus is just an ape. Homo sapiens is just an ape.

Like the earth is 6.5 to 6.6 billion.

Ah, just noticed this quoted. (I didn't have to read much of yours to detect the Gish Gallop).

The age of the Earth is 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years. The uncertainty is due to the fact that no measurement can be perfectly accurate, it's not any shortcoming of the method.

Edited by JonF, : No reason given.

Re: Great scientific responses
Forum guidelines: Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided. Make the argument in your own words and use links as supporting references.

Evolution and the origin of life are separate subjects.

Dawkins is unable to explain the origin of life because nobody is able to explain the origin of life. Yes, an intelligent designer is a possibility, albeit a very unlikely one given the evidence we have. There's lots of research going on, and there are a plethora of possibilities and hypotheses. It was so long ago there's a good possibility we will never have a solid theory.

The Theory of Evolution covers what happened given that life existed, so it is no weaker becasue we can't explain what went before.
