Re: Delete your dog graphics
Speaking of dogs, you're a one-trick pony.

You're not even amusing any longer, just tedious and repetitious. And a loser.

Re: Dogs are still dogs is a stupid comment ...
Does evolution teach that one species or KIND turns into another species or KIND ?

"Kind" is a religious term, with no meaning in science.

But the chart below, which RAZD posts frequently, shows one species turning into another.

But wait! There's more! As an added bonus, there is a change in genus as well!

Pelycodus was a tree-dwelling primate that looked much like a modern lemur. The skull shown is probably 7.5 centimeters long.

The numbers down the left hand side indicate the depth (in feet) at which each group of fossils was found. As is usual in geology, the diagram gives the data for the deepest (oldest) fossils at the bottom, and the upper (youngest) fossils at the top. The diagram covers about five million years.

The numbers across the bottom are a measure of body size. Each horizontal line shows the range of sizes that were found at that depth. The dark part of each line shows the average value, and the standard deviation around the average.

The dashed lines show the overall trend. The species at the bottom is Pelycodus ralstoni, but at the top we find two species, Notharctus nunienus and Notharctus venticolus. The two species later became even more distinct, and the descendants of nunienus are now labeled as genus Smilodectes instead of genus Notharctus.

As you look from bottom to top, you will see that each group has some overlap with what came before. There are no major breaks or sudden jumps. And the form of the creatures was changing steadily.

Re: DJ refuses to answer
Pot, meet kettle!

You have refused to answer the evidence I posted several times disproving the flood at your "exact" date.

And this is just one of the many posts here you have refused to answer.

So get off your high horse unicorn.
