Whoah, barcs, I only just noticed, you have an average star count of 772 stars for every post. You evolutionist chaps with your opinions seem to be very popular. Well done! you have 1 star so far so only 771 to go, exciting!
Ahh, mystery solved, a glitch, although I find it incredibly hard to believe that the data could be wrong!!!
I mean, that sort of thing couldn't possibly happen could it?, not with modern technology and science in the 21st century could it?
My observation is that there is not one critical thinker amongst all of the pro evolutionists on this thread to date, and I am hanging around hoping one will show up. In the meantime I will continue to highlight your own absurdities and ridicule each of you when you pick on friendly people who actually have faith in something that is good.
At least I can hold my head up as a lone wolf, compared to the pack animal mentality that is prevalent here, where you just jump in with jibes and then star each other as if you have been clever.
The only thing that can deter me is a valid argument of which I am still waiting.

Barc, I did address your points. You just did not like the answers.
I never said those changes "could not have happened". They very well may have but if you think they did then you have to take that on faith. You BELIEVE they happened because , to you, it makes perfect sense. But it is only a belief. It is faith. It is not science my friend.

You are right, our exchange ends here, and this, my last post really brings us to the crux of where our opinions clash. It is quite irritating to have self elected wikipedia enthusiasts who thoroughly enjoy preaching, babble on about what they have learned, when we have already made these enquiries ourselves.
There is nothing you have to contribute that we haven't read or spent time considering , we simply disagree with the scientific view. We try to explain why we disagree, to attempt to find common ground for discussion, and are then derided for not believing in your God.
We are most definitely at the disadvantage due to the fact that we can't provide evidence to people who walk about with their eyes closed,when the truth is right in front of them. I can only compare it with, pointing out a rainbow to a blind person, or asking a deaf person to enjoy a beautiful piece of music. You so want them to experience it because you know what a joy it is, but have to resign to the fact that they simply don't have the faculties to appreciate it.
Just consider for one moment, how wonderful it must be, to have an original thought and then discuss it with other intellectuals. Not that this is likely to happen to any of you guys, but if it ever does, you may have to search around for a forum with open minded, thinking people, a rarity in this day and age of modern science I am sorry to say.

It's not about "takeing it on faith" it is about looking at the evidence and seeing how ALL the evidence is explained by the theory. If you are still skeptical then it is up to you to show that the theory does not explain certain evidence or to provide a better explanation. Dismissal is just a cop-out response, not a real unbiased evaluation.
Explain in your own words what "macroevolution" is..

LOL! More insults to our intelligence. Am I to believe that applies to you!? LMAO! Yeah it's about open mindedness, right? Because your mind is open to the science, right? Stop being a hypocrite. You believe something based on personal faith alone and are acting like it's truth and there's something wrong with people who don't agree. It's like whining about how bad the color red is, when it's pure opinion. Sorry to say, but intellectuals do not talk down to others and make fun of anybody who has a different opinion. All you have done in this thread is attack science foolishly and not backed a single thing up. I'm still waiting for your explanation of how the theory of gravity is simply telling folks to turn a key like starting a car, or that creatures can influence genetic mutations because they think it's a good idea, or that the current model of comets is dying, etc etc etc. Back your stuff up, or go in a thread were people are discussing faith. This is about science, and you have offered absolutely nothing of substance to this thread.
I dont think you would know sound science if it came up to you and waved its balls in your face- GetHyped
