I don't think you can say Darwinism or evolution is fake. It's a theory that we work off of. What is your competing theory? Creationism? If so, then what religion? What is the Creation story? Darwin was really the first person to put all that in a coherent theory and that was a good thing. There is provable evolution, even if your just talking mutations and micro evolution, so to speak. There is survival of the fittest and on and on. Sure there are holes, but again what is the alternative. Biblical Creation? What if you don't believe in the divination of Jesus? Hmmmm. There are a lot of holes in that guys story.

how is it wrong?
When Darwin, a orthodox scholarly-praised man, denies that creation never was?
A round-hound, found a fossil that was an imprint of a sandal stepping on a trilobite, embedded in a rock formation near Antelope Springs, Utah, which is supposed to be 600 million years old.
Which means, two thing, 1. We are they who are of the past, and 2. They were smarter.
Back then, raw materials were everywhere. They had opportunity everywhere, unlike today, we hardly have any unless we create it ourselves.
Many are willing to debunk myths at the drop of a hate when myths came from legends, legends came from facts. But they can destroy the myths of today but will have the hardest time to destroy the myths of Yesterday.

FYI the source of the sandal claim and it's refutation are available here.
As with all such creation nonsense I'm amazed "they" continue to make these claims thinking that somehow it makes "them" look good

Perfect example of what I was talking about. Evolution says nothing about the origin of life. You are talking about abiogenesis and that is a completely different topic. If you were really interested in catching up with the times you would have researched and known this.
Referring to the second part, yes, evolution does talk about gradual changes over time to create something more complex/diverse. What do you mean "where is the data?" You know you're on the internet, right? Have at it. I'm not going to hold your hand like your skydaddy. You are simply being willfully ignorant.edit on 7-21-13 by paradox because: (no reason given)

Oh, yes it does! That old argument doesn't fly. That is EXACTLY what was taught in schools for a long time. I know; I got the same stuff in school for years. The one is directly related to the other, and coining new terms, to avoid addressing the issue, is disingenuous.
There is no date to prove one species changed to another species. I would call "willfully ignorant" holding to a theory that was never proven, and doesn't hold up any longer.edit on 29-7-2013 by LadyGreenEyes because: typo
