And so the barrage of ignorance, including name-calling, begins.

Make some life for me man! Should be pretty simple shouldn’t it? You should have all the tools right?
Um...I'm a 22 year old University student working on a non-sciences degree...no, I really shouldn't have sophisticated lab equipment required to
And you're comparing a closed lab environment to...the entire Earth for a period of millions of years...
You guys have to make things up for your standard model to explain anything.
No, we don't have to make anything up. In fact, making things up is severely frowned upon by the scientific community
, they prefer to rely on
evidence based hypotheses and theories.
You have gone a long way to explain what you see around you, but you really have no clue and thats no different than bible thumping.
No clue? So...explaining...um...everything that humanity knows about the natural world is 'no clue'? Explaining the motions of celestial bodies,
biodiversity, electricity, weather, geology, genetics, etc and providing practical applications for it
is 'no clue' and is equivalent to the
entire absence of progress made in understanding of the natural world as made by those who advocate just the Bible...I'm sorry, but there's no
It is faith you hold on to, all the same!
I'm sorry, but please show me
how we have faith.
I'll give you that if the human species survives long enough we they may well have the answers, but that time is not now.
...I already addressed this. You didn't seem to read my post. That's why I like doing these point-by-point responses, it shows that I've actually
read the entire post I'm responding to.

Now, the crazy thing is that science doesn't claim to have all the answers, though to does claim to have some of them. It also claims that it has the
means to attain all the answers. But things would be a hell of a lot better out there if we had all the answers.
I already explained this. All human progress today? That's the result of science
To say your beliefs are better than someone else’s is just hypocritical and more of the same thing we have seen for millennium.
I haven't said my beliefs are better than someone else's. Now, the scientific facts of evolution are superior to the superstitious nonsense that is
creationism. There is a mountain of evidence in favor of the naturalistic explanations. There isn't even a pebble on the creationist side.
Get over it, dude!
Get over what? The science that actually works
. The science whose effectiveness is proven by the medium we're using to carry out this
I'm sorry, but it'll take me a while to get over the incredible achievements that were made by science.
Your professor = Modern day prophet.
Just because you say it doesn't make it so. And which professor? I mean, I don't take any professor's word for anything unless they can demonstrate
the claim with evidence....which is the exact opposite of how a prophet is treated.
The complexity of interactions that happen in a single cell is beyond human comprehension.
No, it's quite well within human comprehension. In fact, I studied it in freshman biology
in high school.
We are learning to tinker with cells, but thats it!
So...because we can't do more than play around with cells for now
...science is as bogus as religion. I'm sorry, but you should really read up
on science and rational thought. It would be of immense help to you.
