Re: Kinds reproduce according to their kind
This one is funny.

Now you are saying that there is some "critical level" that gets reached when interbreeding stops? Why would there be any "critical level" anyway, and what is that critical level?

Yip. It's called extinction. Plenty of evidence for those in the fossil record.

Doesn't matter how many mutations there are, anything that adds to the genetic diversity has to be reduced/selected/subtracted/depleted or whatnot in order to get new phenotypes or a new "species." But I'm not going to spend time on your posts in this thread, at least not yet. I've got enough to do dealing with RAZD's

Nope. All mutations add to genetic diversity. Every mutation. Big or small.

Which is all theoretical since I don't think even this much actually happens.

Luckily for humanity reality does not care about what you claim to be your version of 'thinking'.

...they remain an enormous homogeneous population...

Actually, there's not a lot of them left in Africa. And they have a very small range left.

Re: Flood stuff
So, the existence of buried sand dunes, rivers, even massive monadnocks in the strata, all are "foreign objects"!

Way to go. Those features, found in the rock record, are so Un-american.

What on earth do you mean by rushing waters "wearing out" a river?

That's not exactly what was written. Why do you write so many untruths?

Re: Creationist mindset
You should start thinking, Faith.
Faith writes:

... but although everybody here including you keeps chopping off my head for it, I thlnk the sciences of the past are less reliable simply because it's all determined from the point of view of the present..


Paternity tests, Faith. You really don't have to have been there to know who's the biological mother and father. Paternity tests tell you what happened in the past. Not repeated in the present, but they are very reliable on telling you what happened in the past. Much more reliable than people denying that sex happened.

Paternity tests about the past are much more reliable than what people tell you now.

Re: Creationist mindset
This one is funny again.

There's only one truly scientific dating method and that's radiometric...

You don't know much, Faith. Lots and lots and lots of different radiometric methods. And they all converge to give similar dates. Together with all the other different dating methods.

Re: Creationist mindset
Faith writes:

I'm talking qbout the distant past, not the recent past where you can hold the father responsible

The past is the past, Faith. We can and do test the past. Whether recent or distant. We use those methods.

You may not like it because of your ridiculous faith; but rational people do. Whether recent history or distant history. Those methods work.

We may already have a problem with different uses of some terms

Yip, you do creationism and pretend that the way you use it are the way they are used in science. They certainly are not.
