Have we found the missing link? Just curious.

The mythical missing link. Care to specify what exactly is missing? I bet this is something you remember from sunday school or some other religious indoctrination/brainwashing center...

Ah but you are above all of them, at least you seem to think so.

If you mean transitional fossils, there are already there.

you would never find A > B > C > D > F,

It would be A a1 a2 a3 a4 a5 a6 a7 ab 1 ab 2 ab 3 ab4 ab 5 B b1 b2 b3 b4 b5 bc bc1 bc2 bc3 etc

all we could do is keep digging and filling the puzzle. Its not easy to find perfect fossils, also these fossils are just a bonus to explain evolution, there are many other information.

I do believe in evolution and that it is fact, although the theory of how that happens is not. The path of human evolution cannot be mapped from A-Z until it can your theories on the subject are simply unfounded and that's my point.


HUMANS DID NOT EVOLVE FROM CHIMPS. How many times does this have to be repeated?



YOU NAZI! HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THE AUTHORITY OF THE GENERIC SHOOL CURRICULUM!


god did it. make sense.


Prove we evolved from apes please, I still have yet to see it besides maybe some ground thumpin gorrillas.
You have faith in in evolution? Ouch, not a solid arguement if so

It's hard not to become condescending. Once I had a guy tell me that dinosaurs never lived. They were just a bunch of bones that people dug up and put together however they wanted to make whatever kind of creature they desired.

Even worse, somebody is going to read the explanation for dinosaurs that I just shared. They will think about it for 2 seconds and declare it within their mind to be a reasonable explanation.

It is the continuous finding of transitional fossils. We keep finding small bits and pieces, and like to believe that a lower species evolved into us, but finding of the records had gaps last I heard.

I never said I even believe in creationism... You just assume that. What I believe is the truth, that we have no idea how life started or why humans are so much more advanced than everything else.

Actually, we have a pretty good idea of how life started. It's called the RNA world, and numerous experiments support it. In one experiment, autocatalytic RNA molecules, which are thought to represent the very beginning of life in this planet, spontaneously formed from short strands of RNA. Human intelligence isn't very hard to explain either. Natural selection clearly strongly favored this trait in our lineage.

I just hate evolutionist people like you that are ALWAYS right. You sound no better than the creationist. Your both to blame!!!

The truth is there ARE shades of grey in this world and you DON'T know the answer to every question. So stop pretending like you do. None of us do, not you, not me, not the smartest scientist on this planet. Just accept to truth, WE DON'T KNOW!



Exactly! The only thing we know for sure is that we dont know. Science can take us right to the beginning of the procces but it will never explain why. Creationist try to fill the blanks with Humanist Ideas which will always fall short of explaining anything.

Just accept that we know nothing and you save yourself a lot of pain.

THANK YOU. Finally somebody came in here with facts! Thank you good sir. I don't care if my view is right or wrong, I strive for truth. Not blind obidence to evolution OR creationism. Please bless these people with facts. They are sorely needed. I'm tapping out. Actually have a job, etc.

Ok, maybe that guy. Have the people on here said that to you? Again, so what if they believe something different it doesn't make you smarter than them.

What is a "lower species"?

I get that, I just wanted to know if we have been continuing to fill the gaps with transitional fossils.

Sorry for the poor wording. A less evolved species. At least as human beings concern ourselves as.

i'll have to go w/ The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien - preceding the hobits and middle earth.

If memory serves me the numbers were at around 70% for Creationism in the 50s and 60% in the 80s. The denial of spirit usually correlates to the economic and social decline of a country. Its no surprise that cannibalism, manslaughter, rape, violence and hate-speech toward the religious have been on the constant rise since decades.

less evolved? where was it proven or even suggested that man is the "most evolved?" evolution, and life in general, is not a straight line of progress from 1 to 10. one species a long time ago branched off into two or more separate species and then died out as the new species continued to evolve. We probably came from a very low population species which was concentrated in one area. that would explain why it's so hard to find this missing link. but again, that term leads one to believe that it is a chain, link after link, from past to present. evolution moves in fits and starts, sometimes even backtracking on itself.

So I guess this thread has been discarded and forgotten by both members and mods.

Apparently no name calling and civility are only a suggestion.

Well, I've been told I can no longer start threads that have anything to do with my show, but this is not a thread starter, and this episode deals specifically with the OP. It is my interview with Pastor Carl Gallups of the PPSimmons Youtube channel, in which he discusses his book "The Magic Man in the Sky: Effectively Defending the Christian Faith."



I DARE any atheist to read this book and maintain their unbelief in the Almighty.
