The only problem here is that you and creationists alike seperate microevolution and macroevolution. Macroevolution is a substantial amount of microevolutional changes over a period of time.

Here's the problem. Adaptation does not include mutation, then passing of alleles through very strong gametic and phenotypic barriers. Also, Adaptation does not mean a new trait is formed, rather a shifting along the genetic code from one end to the other. For example, eye color can be green or brown or shades in between. You will not have a child born with purple eyes that reflect light in the dark. The reason is because that combination of alleles is not available to humankind. To "invent" that is what macroevolution pruports out of some mechanistic need such as natural selection, flukeology, undeveloped but amusing chaos theory, or druidic luck.


Who said that human's will have purple eyes that reflect in the dark?

The concept of evolution was arrived at by examining nature. If you care to read Origin of Species you'll notice that Darwin's ideas came from observing nature. Looking at existing species, examining their characteristics and commonalities, and considering how they arose led to the idea of common descent. What's more, that idea is and has been tested repeatedly. So, the general theory of evolution was arrived at using the scientific method.

And again, all you have is "Bible said so!" When the bible also says Pi=3.0 and that the Earth is flat.

Also, it could be flat, after all the Earth being round is "just a theory"

change of allele frequency is considered to be evolution.

Tiktaalik, of course. Pronounced tik-TAA-lik, this 375 million year old fossil splashed across headlines as soon as its discovery was announced in April of 2006. Unearthed in Arctic Canada by a team of researchers led by Neil Shubin, Edward Daeschler, and Farish Jenkins, Tiktaalik is technically a fish, complete with scales and gills — but it has the flattened head of a crocodile and unusual fins. Its fins have thin ray bones for paddling like most fishes', but they also have sturdy interior bones that would have allowed Tiktaalik to prop itself up in shallow water and use its limbs for support as most four-legged animals do. Those fins and a suite of other characteristics set Tiktaalik apart as something special; it has a combination of features that show the evolutionary transition between swimming fish and their descendents, the four-legged vertebrates — a clade which includes amphibians, dinosaurs, birds, mammals, and of course, humans.

I brought up tiktaalik a while back in this thread, it was pretty much ignored and brushed over. Like it's being now. That's just the problem, people ask for evidence, you give it to them and they deny it.

Negative, mechanistically we can explain adaptation (or as you would say "microevolution") whereas we cannot for "Macroevolution". We can test adaptation, model it, produce data, predict and verify results with adaptation. Not the case with "macroevolution", hence the misnomer. Using the word is nothing more than propaganda, not scientific relationship.

The example is one that demonstrates that yes in fact there are barriers in a single organism's ability to express variability. This encoding is in the Deoxyribonucleic Acid. Evolutionists seems to enjoy ignoring the barriers (I guess because of their faith/idolatry/worship of humanity to overcome anything/everything), whereas Mendel was discovering them.

Saying this is not enough Shauny, I've read Origins and it does not have any more observational information than a birdwatcher's book. Darwin was a great birdwatcher, certainly, but birdwatching alone does not justify any daydreams of lineage, taxonomic relationships or genotypic transpeciation.

Heh, no mechanism for macroevolution. Maybe time and normal evolutionary processes like drift, mutation, natural selection etc are sufficient. Maybe new mechanisms will be found.

But to suggest there is no mechanism is just wrong.

Saint, would you define an ape-like ancestor to man as macro or micro? And why?

And you seem to enjoy bringing evolutionists down to your level of 'faith', because it makes your own faith therefore look credible. When infact yours is pure faith, the faith you suggest evolutionists have is nothing but a figment of your imagination. You do this to try and make it seem as though anyone who thinks evolution is right is less credible and not scientific, you try and seperate science and evolution to further your own agenda.

Yes there are certain barriers. For example a chimpanzee will not suddenly tomorrow give birth to a human. Elephants have long trunks for a reason, they're not merely there for the sake of it, they have long trunks so they can pull food in to their mouths or drink.

I'm not really sure what your stance is on why/how everything is the way it is. Obviously you don't believe that everything today evolved from simple organisms over billions of years, and you don't believe man and apes share an ancestor, but as far as this 'adaption' you seem to be game for that. If you're game for adaption, then why are you so certain that over millions and billions of years of adaption that significant change can't happen.

They are indeed insufficient. Let's review:

Drift - Variability within a genomic sequence. No magic here, you're just sliding up and down the gene going from wrinkled yellow peas to green smooth peas. No purple square peas result.

Mutuation - See previous posting on phenotypic and genotypic reasons why mutations are not passed along to successive generations.

Natural Selection - A model that's been under review and revision a number of times because it doesn't quite seem to work. Natural Selection may have a use in discussing drift but is not an omni-anwer, rather a single case scenario that may happen now and then to go from wrinkled yellow peas to smooth green peas.

Why is faith down? Faith is up my friend
. If I'm in error, it's due to putting it into a catagory that is perhaps undeserved.

Although I don't, there are those that say God exists because of evolution not in-spite of it. I haven't chosen either way. Evidence is required to make a decision.

This thread is not about my faith or an agenda. If evolution is strong enough, it could stand on its own. I'm merely showing that it isn't.

Adaptation already exists in the DNA. It's part of the code. We're not inventing anything new in the nitrogenous base sequence. We've just mapped the Human Genome. We can know in that blueprint what a human can and can not develop. Unfortunately, transpeciation is not one of them. Unless some alien comes along to doodle on that blueprint, it isn't going to change. Only vary along the same strand.

Natural selection works very well. Even if we ignore the effect of new variation from novel mutations, how do you think pre-existing variations show large changes in allele frequency in respone to the environment?

For example, when we see lizards with shorter legs come to fore in a population due to predation.

Or a mutation aiding male butterflies to survive.

Then why would it still be taught as science? Evolution didn't HAVE to be right. It was just an idea that Darwin had, yet over 150 years later there's an absolutely vast amount of evidence for evolution. This shows evolution can stand on it's feet. All you're clearly doing, is clearly showing that faith and belief can affect your decision making when it comes to rational concepts like evolution.

Let's all take a lesson in how Saint formulates his arguement:

This is scientific fact. Opening with this makes Saint seem like he's ''making a point'' that is based on fact.

2) Unfortunately, transpeciation is not one of them.

Then he throws this sarcastic, yet witty, comment in to the arguement. By starting with the scientific fact, he can then pass something else off as scientific fact (the part about transpeciation), and he can then validate his whole arguement by saying the only way evolution is possible is if aliens came down and doodled on our blueprint (a highly unlikely scenario).

Just thought it was an interesting method.

Again, so? That's what adaptation is. DNA did not spontaneously 'create' shorter or longer legs, it's already coded for both. Even if it did, what is the conscious motivator that drives it?

I like this article, it makes some very strong claims. Yet doublebacks to "That demonstrated that the observed pattern was due to suppression and not due to another phenomenon," he said." And some other things where they say they are unsure. If it were really hot, they'd publish a paper with all the details as the final proof of definition. I'd like to see more. I'd like to see where they apply the Scientific Method to what they claim...unfortunately, they can't.

This situation is akin to the Bubonic plague. Did the plague wipe out everyone? No? Why not? Well, some people expressed the gene for the resistance. Instead of complete wipeout of humanity in the region, it was more like 2/3rds. The principle behind it is used for vaccinations.

What is a loaded question?



A loaded question is a question with a false or questionable presupposition, and it is "loaded" with that presumption. The question "Have you stopped beating your wife?" presupposes that you have beaten your wife prior to its asking, as well as that you have a wife. If you are unmarried, or have never beaten your wife, then the question is loaded.

Since this example is a yes/no question, there are only the following two direct answers:

"Yes, I have stopped beating my wife", which entails "I was beating my wife."
"No, I haven't stopped beating my wife", which entails "I am still beating my wife."
Thus, either direct answer entails that you have beaten your wife, which is, therefore, a presupposition of the question. So, a loaded question is one which you cannot answer directly without implying a falsehood or a statement that you deny. For this reason, the proper response to such a question is not to answer it directly, but to either refuse to answer or to reject the question.

Novel Point Mutations in the Dihydrofolate Reductase Gene of Plasmodium vivax: Evidence for Sequential Selection by Drug Pressure
Received September 16, 2002; Revised November 27, 2002; Accepted January 30, 2003.

Abstract

Mutations in the dihydrofolate reductase (dhfr) genes of Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax are associated with resistance to the antifolate antimalarial drugs. P. vivax dhfr sequences were obtained from 55 P. vivax isolates (isolates Belem and Sal 1, which are established lines originating from Latin America, and isolates from patient samples from Thailand [n = 44], India [n = 5], Iran [n = 2], and Madagascar [n = 2]) by direct sequencing of both strands of the purified PCR product and were compared to the P. vivax dhfr sequence from a P. vivax parasite isolated in Pakistan (isolate ARI/Pakistan), considered to represent the wild-type sequence. In total, 144 P. vivax dhfr mutations were found at only 12 positions, of which 4 have not been described previously. An F→L mutation at residue 57 had been observed previously, but a novel codon (TTA) resulted in a mutation in seven of the nine mutated variant sequences. A new mutation at residue 117 resulted in S→T (S→N has been described previously). These two variants are the same as those observed in the P. falciparum dhfr gene at residue 108, where they are associated with different levels of antifolate resistance. Two novel mutations, I→L at residue 13 and T→M at residue 61, appear to be unique to P. vivax. The clinical, epidemiological, and sequence data suggest a sequential pathway for the acquisition of the P. vivax dhfr mutations. Mutations at residues 117 and 58 arise first when drug pressure is applied. Highly mutated genes carry the S→T rather than the S→N mutation at residue 117. Mutations at residues 57 and 61 then occur, followed by a fifth mutation at residue 13.

They're not sufficient else we'd not be having this conversation.


No, what you should say is that they are not sufficient to satisfy you. You have no evidence that they are not sufficient. All we need is millions of years, and little changes accumulate to become big changes.

As for the loaded question statement, yeah I guess it is. It happens to put you in a very tight position, because there is little real morphological or genetic difference between all us apes, just a case of microevolution
