You seem to be the one off track on this.

LOL

quote:
The fact remains there isn't any way to objectively test the grand sweep of the theory of evolution- from some unknown populations of genetically unknowable organisms to the extinct (fossil evidence) & extant diversity we observe today.

If you mean that there is no way to set up an experiment and watch transformations over billions of years, then of course you are correct. But that doesn't mean the theory is completely untestable. The ToE makes predictions, or retrodictions, of what we should find in the fossil record, in DNA studies, in geological surveys (timeframe and geographic isolation). Those predictions fit the data. This is a test of sorts. And that data itself can be, and is, objectively tested.

If you would like we could focus on one of the alleged "great transformations" such as the alleged evolution of cetaceans from terrestial mammals.

Yeah, sure. I like whales.

No it isn't; but accurate.

quote:
--That's nice, doesn't play much significance, however, in the long run.

It must be nice to be able to dismiss the evidence with a magic wand.

quote:
"Were there dinosaurs on the ark?"
--Yup.

You're joking. The ark, had it ever existed, wouldn't have been big enough to hold two of all of the currently living critters, much less all of the extinct ones.

quote:
"I think we all know that dinosaurs were never mentioned in any book of the bible."
--Could you read it first please?

I've read it. Didn't see no dinosaurs.

quote:
"How do creationists resolve the fact that their myths are predated by and promulgated from those of the Assyrians?
--I don't think thats a fact axial.

Don't know your comparative mythology do ya?

quote:
"There was no first human."
--According to your interpretation, there may not have been, according to me, your wrong.

But all you have for evidence is a book of fairy-tales.

quote:
"There was a series of steps in the transition between the animal that looked australopithecine and the one that looked H. neanderthalansis. Like the evolving virus. Now there is us."
--See above.

You mean up where you dismiss the evidence?

[quote][b]"How about this:
http://www.unknowncountry.com/news/?id=1779 Mars once had oceans. Titan still does. Anthrax spores have survived in Antarctica for 90 years: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/07/22/tech/main515899.shtml
There is a reference to the discovery in a US lab of how to make viruses by the vat. I will be on the look-out for that for a different reason. Making life is learning to control chemical processes. The only mystery is that some people choose not to try and understand the step-by-step process scientists and engineers use when they do something new.
--Still, no problem.
[/quote]

Sounds like you just admitted to abiogenesis? Life is just chemistry.

Welcome back TC.
