Re: yes.
Which is pretty much what has been found. The number of species included in the genus Homo has kept on growing as more and more data is discovered.

there is no culture of truth or honesty in Creationism.

Otherwise it sounds as though you dismiss a source if written by a creationist regardless of weather the argument is secular.

Correct. Dismiss with prejudice. Creationist simply do not tell the truth, constantly misrepresent sources and take lines out of context.

No one should ever trust anything that comes from Creationist.

Seriously? Every single one of them?
I heard Neil deGrasse Tyson say that 15% of top ToE scienctists in the highest academy or something are creos. (not sure how cos the adam and eve yarn goes up in flames). Even them?

I would imagine you misheard. Perhaps he said 15% of top scientists are Christians. But it is absolutely impossible for someone to be a Creationist and honest when it comes to science.

PnC writes:

How about if a piece of data is found that may support one of their things. I dunno some dates might not match up or something? Are scientists also dissmissing without prejeduce?

No Creationists have ever come up with any new data or done any honest "Creation" research. It is simply impossible.

There is no culture of truth or honesty in Creationism and quite frankly, there cannot be such a culture.

Re: creationist vs athiest radicals
PnC writes:

These following quotes are from a top ToE scientist in his book
"The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution (2009)"

Page 8: " Evolution is a fact. Beyond reasonable doubt, beyond serious doubt, beyond sane, informed, intelligent doubt, beyond doubt evolution is a fact. The evidence for evolution is at least as strong as the evidence for the Holocaust, even allowing for eye witnesses to the Holocaust. It is the plain truth that we are cousins of chimpanzees, somewhat more distant cousins of monkeys, more distant cousins still of aardvarks and manatees, yet more distant cousins of bananas and turnips... continue the list as long as desired."

Page 164: " We don’t need fossils – the case for evolution is watertight without them; so it is paradoxical to use gaps in the fossil record as though they were evidence against evolution"

As a life long Christian I agree totally and completely with those quotes.

You confuse things. It is not Creationist vs atheist radicals it is Creationist vs reality, honesty and truth.

Re: still pushing this creationist jargon
Confirms what?

Are you capable of reading?

The issue has nothing to do with being an atheist or theist; it only involves reality, honesty and truth vs religious fantasy.
