Humble, if I may interject.. The real question is, who has the truth? You see... as I have said time and time again, we are living in a world where everyone wants to be right all of the time. Well, not everyone is right. And no one is right all of the time.

Oh really, and where is the evidence? Can you show me all of the millions of evolving chimp bones, or even at least even ONE chimp that is starting to evolve?


The evidence is so compelling to be quite funny when I see people denying it.

All species are evolving all the time. With every generation, evolution takes place. Withe every new version of the flu and aids virus, bacteria that become immune to antibiotics, with new species of organisms being shown to have evolved.

But if you want a cat evolving into a dog style of evolution, you may have to either wait a while or use the historical and genetic evidence we have.

Umm, that is called micro-evolution, a change within the species.

I want the cold hard proof of macro-evolution.

Why such a debate between evolutionist and creationist? I mean really? Look, ...you no what. I' am not even going to go into that spiel here.. You all continue on..

Agreed, and I will tell you who has the Truth, his name is Jesus Christ.

cleary, you do not understand how evolution works

we did NOT evolve from chimps
both chimps and humans evolved from a common ancestor

how about the austriopithicines (i butchered the spelling)
if you're trying to argue against human evolution, you're in for a firestorm of evidence

I know how evolution works, we started out in some primordial ooze somewhere, went into the ocean, changed some more, went to the surface, blah blah blah, chimp blah blah, walk on two legs, get a brain blah blah so on and so on.

And that is still evolution. Macroevolution is just large scale change over large periods of time.

It's your thread, and I agree with speaker that this is really a waste of time, been here before, I think you're understanding of science is basic but I'll follow through. I was just successfully showing that your initial statement about colour vision and animals were way off the mark.

If you want to spend a few hours reviewing the evidence for common descent, you can start here at the 29+ evidences for macroevolution...

www.talkorigins.org...

As I said, the evidence is too compelling to ignore and too wide-ranging to present in one post.

Read the info, then maybe we'll focus on a more specific issue.

ABE: I like the way that in your precis of evolution above that we get the brain at the end of the process...

Wait, you're asking for evidence of science? There's nothing wrong with your faith and beliefs, but there is no evidence that you are right. Be at peace in your faith. But you can't claim that your unanswered questions are evidence of God's existence and then deny the evidence of evolution.

Take a class on evolution and listen. You'll get all the evidence you need.

All I'm seeing is words, i want something that i can touch and see.

A monkey drawing or creating a symphony would help.

Do you demand the same evidence for your belief in God? :shk:

Yes, and i have taken a look around and i can see what he has created.

Well, then you can easily take a look around and see that we are a product of evolution. And it's not just guessing, there's REAL evidence, not just speculation.

And how do you know that?

What is your theory, what is the evidence, how did creation take place?

Quick reading by the way...

Humble, you are arguing as if you think that evolution disproves your faith. Relax,it doesn't...Take a deep breath and think about it..

I know because we DO exist.

The evidence? Take a look around.

How did it take place? Cannot answer that, only The Almighty knows what he has done.

If he is open to learning I would suggest he reads Ken Miller's book 'Finding Darwin's God'. Faith and acceptance of the validity of evolution need not conflict.

Exactly...We don't know how.. Evolution is a theory as to how it happened. That is all that it is.

Yes, I know it cannot disprove faith, but I want them to realize you also need faith to believe in evolution.

We need faith to believe we're alive. We need faith to believe in love. We need faith to have hope. But not necessarily faith in God.

Not very convincing.

I guess your not aiming for a career in science or any area that requires proper evidence and critical analysis.

The theory of evolution does not require belief without evidence. I provided a source of evidence for you earlier.
