Wow. Now I see where all the government funding has gone. Evolutionists have been spending a lot of money, time and effort on expanding their propaganda machine to further push their brainwashing.

Meanwhile, Creation Scientists struggle along without government funding on a fraction of the budget that Evolution scientists get.

www.icr.org...



Don't worry

Since there's no such thing as a creation scientist, they don't need the money

The symmetry is so perfect, it makes you believe a higher power had something to do with the funding

Explain how I'm wrong… PROVE… nothing I've shown discredits evolution. What I did show and prove is evolution has been and continues to be built off lies!


Could you please make dot points of every claim you've made where you've proven evolution has been and continuously is built off lies?

Please make dot points of every attempt you've made where you have apparently discredited evolution. Thx.

Some people believe everything they read when it goes against the existance of God.



How does this change your stance?
Many people including myself who believe evolution to be true based on evidence, also are NOT athiest.... So now what? what happens to your argument?

With all due respect, that comment is absurd. The US gov't has not funded such a thing and the past 8 years under Bush has actually funded anti-evolutionists aka creationist/intelligent design.

We "evolutionist" are not attacking your beliefs, it is your side attacking us for using reason.

Oh come on people. Why don't we take the people who think the Earth is flat, center of the Universe, Creation, so forth in one room. Then take people who believe in science and reality in another. Then give them both IQ tests and see who scores higher. Thus proving one side is full of morons and the others full of non morons. Wouldn't say smart just not as dumb as the other side.

Umm, there are only 30 pages... I would suggest 25 thru 29, but that would just be a suggestion... You're welcome!

It's funny how you don't understand what you've even posted


Nothing you've shown discredits evolutionary research. At best you've shown modifications to the theory not the invalidation of it.

I could go on and on explaining why you're wrong but you won't believe me as it would, in your mind, conflict with your set of beliefs and we can't have that now can we


The reality is that when a belief is more important then reality, bad things can happen (ie the inquisition, salem witch trials, Evolution (added for effect) etc...)




What a bunch of crap! I triple double dog dare you to: Explain how I'm wrong… PROVE… nothing I've shown discredits evolution. What I did show and prove is evolution has been and continues to be built off lies! You can't just say I'm wrong simply because you wish it so!

No but I can say you're wrong because you are. Let's say for arguments sake that the handful of items you've posted are fraudulent. That doesn't make all the other science that has been shown factual over and over fraudulent does it? Ever hear the following?
"don't throw the baby out with the bath water"


I realize you have to deny the truth about evolution because if you didn't your make believe world would fall apart...

Actually not at all. If evolution were proven completely false tomorrow, I'd think it would be incredibly fascinating as it would give me an opportunity to learn something completely new. I would thrive on the completely new frontier laid out before me.


However, those of us who are interested in finding truth are not going to lay down so you can live in your hate everything and deny anything that discredits Evolution, simply because its your religion. Hell to the NO!

What makes you think I hate everything? I don't hate religion at all if that is what you're implying. FYI, I was raised Catholic and am not an athiest as I have stated a number of times.


I love what I did to your last sentence because that equals truth! Evolution and the way you believers of evolution behave is just like the witch trials, the inquisition... Evolutionist are nothing but blind radical believers in a science that is mostly madeup make believe, lies and conjecture that is not grounded in hard science, PERIOD!

Fine then please post scientific data that disproves evolution. If you can't do that then your statement is completely baseless.


BTW, I'm still waiting for you to prove, for you to do, what you said you could!

--Charles Marcello

I'm sorry, what was I supposed to prove? Seriously, please tell me and I'll do my best to answer your question(s). I do try and go out of my way to answer anyone's questions I can. It would be nice if you also did that by the way

I always ask creationists "Ok, there's a theory of gravity, right?" They usually respond with a yes. Then I say, "That doesn't mean that gravity doesn't work."

Ok well in your first point on page 25, you said “None of these links are proof! They are fossils”

en.wikipedia.org...
en.wikipedia.org...
en.wikipedia.org...

Every single fossil is transitional. There is no such thing as a final evolved form, we are evolving even now.


those who believe in Evolution say are transitional or proof of such. But they most certainly are not proof of transitional anything


Whale evolution - Pakicetidae, Ambulocetidae, Remingtonocetedae, Protocetidae, Basilosauridae, Dorudontidae

How are transitional fossils not proof of transitional fossils???? It would appear when you’re given the evidence you still won’t accept it no matter how much is presented to you.


Where is the transition from having legs to only having back legs and no front legs. From having legs to a blow hole on top of the head and no nose, where are those fossils... Oh that's right they don't exist.


Do you understand how extremely rare fossils are? Just to have found the fossils we have is fantastic but you shouldn’t expect every single fossil of every single species of every singe creature that has ever existed to be found. When something dies, it is usually disassembled, digested, and decomposed. Only rarely is anything ever fossilized, and even fewer things are very well-preserved. Because the conditions required for that process are so particular, the fossil record can only represent a tiny fraction of everything that has ever lived.


The link itself even says it has more to do with dinosaurs then today’s modern birds


Of course, because it isn’t of today’s birds. It’s a dinosaur evolving into an early set of what are now birds. You wouldn’t expect it to look like an actual bird because it isn’t – it’s the transition between.



darwinwasright.homestead.com...


The most famous one was the first ever recognized as such. Archaeopteryx lithographica was discovered in 1860. It was the first of many lines of evidence revealing that birds had evolved from dinosaurs. So Darwin’s theory was first vindicated while he was still alive. Of course creationists will never accept that, and still complain that archaeopteryx can’t be intermediate because we can’t prove it’s the single crown species from which all other birds emerged. But it doesn’t have to be, and that’s not what transitional means. In biology, species can be precisely identified genetically. But in paleontology, they’re determined morphologically.

So creationists argued that Archeaopteryx still doesn’t qualify because it’s “100% bird”. But they’re difficult to pin down as to why they say this, because this animal, like all other quasi-birds of that age, lacks many definitive features of modern birds, and it retains so many distinctly saurian features that when the last Archaeopteryx was found in the 1960s, the traces of its feathers weren’t immediately evident, and it was thus mistaken for a small dinosaur called Compsognathus.

But creationists continue to use every excuse they can think of to dismiss Archaeopteryx as an intermediate species. They complained that its lungs weren’t right to be transitional, or that it had the wrong kind of pelvis. They even tried to imply that every such fossil found so far were fakes. They think any excuse will do, and they’ve done the same attempting to summarily dispute every additional intermediary ever seen since. No matter what, creationists will not admit that anything we ever find can fulfill Darwin’s prediction of transitional intermediates.

This is why creationists demand only monstrous absurdities or issue challenges they know still couldn’t be satisfied no matter how true evolution may be; because they know already that whatever they insist on seeing today we may show them tomorrow, and if that happens, they’ll have to make up new excuses for why it still doesn’t count. So they won’t request to see anything evolution actually requires, and they usually won’t define any criteria they would accept either, because they already know they won’t accept anything even if we show them everything they ever ask for.

Have you people NO Shame? You find fossils, then say they are transitional, when in fact you found fossils of completely different creatures that don't exist anymore, and then magically claim ancestral history to present day creatures. There is ZERO proof they are transitional from this to thus. What you have is pure speculation, when in fact they are just fossils you people claim are transitional with ZERO proof... That is the only fact!

I am sick and tired of science doing this... Science is becoming more of a joke then a search for objective truth. How freaken embarrassing!

BTW, reposting the same stuff over and over again, doesn’t make it more true every time you post it. Rather, it just proves how frequently evolutionist have to say the same lies over and over again just so they can go on believing. And you people say you aint a religion! whatev--er!

I'll ask you again. Prove all scientific data related to evolution is a lie. That is your claim. If you can't back up your claim, you're making a false, irresponsible claim with absolutely no basis in fact.
So which is it?
Is evolution a lie or is your claim a lie? Pick one and support it.

So you have about 80 people on the list. Just curious but is there a list of people who have signed on FOR evolution? And if so, how long is that list ?

80 people aren't very much. that's the equivalent of a semi-busy lunch at taco bell.
To put the APROX. 80 people into perspective, post the list of people who are FOR evolution and their stats. You can do that right? So we can compare apples to apples.

Also keep in mind that nowhere in that list, are there any arguments against the science behind evolution
Why not post evidence to contradict evolution?

No there are exceptions which are still being investigated by scientific means, rather than just giving up and resorting to having a belief in the opposite



Evolutionists claim "“virtually every reputable scientist in the world, agrees with evolution.”


Wrong, Im an evolutionist and know for a fact that not every scientist believes in evolution. I work for the Australian Met Bureau, and the head of our department is a staunh creationist.....that was a very ignorant comment (from both perspectives)

One thing I find VERY amusing is that certain people want evolution to not be real. Let's say, for arguments sake the evolution is completely wrong. SO what? It doesn't prove the existence of god. So now you still need to prove god is real. Remember you keep demanding proof that evolution is real so by your own logic you must now demand proof that god is real
GOOD LUCK
If you find proof of god, you'll be on top of the world my friends

I cut the list short so I could put it all on one post, that was about half of it.

I KNOW there are MANY more scientists that support it. And just like you they won't listen to the ones that say it needs to be researched more before people call it a FACT, they won't listen to their own.

My contention is that it isn't fact, that there needs to be research before people can call it fact.

Quit calling it a fact.

It's crazy to try to hold on to the "evolution is a fact" thing, when it isn't.

It makes you sound worse than any "fanatical creationist".

I haven't heard ANY creationist on this thread say creationism is fact. I've heard them possibly say the facts fit better with creationism, but they stop there.

Just because a theory has some facts in it, doesn't make it a fact as a whole.

I don't want evolution to be real or not real.

If i told you God is a fact, I'd sound just as crazy as you do. I couldn't do that because I can't prove it. Regardless of my beliefs, I wouldn't try to cram it down your throat as fact.

Or I'd sound like you.
