For radioactive dating methods used for rocks - you do avoid the fact that starting values are assumed, then praised if they hit on the year mark they are looking for or thrown away if not.
And you also put me up as a straw man, when my argument was 'please don't teach hypotheses and theories as fact, when there isn't 100% evidence for the claims.' It's actions like these that will brainwash a society - to believe that theories are truth, that's not the point of a theory. The point of a theory is to say "hey this MAY be truth, let's explore further" and then to hopefully eventually discover it
Evolution assumes the intersections in the bush MUST exist because findings are very similar. The only problem is science exists in OBSERVABLE experimentation/observation, while evolution exists on both sides of that fence.
Seeing a virus 'evolve' because we have to keep changing vaccines is not 'evolution'. This could be easily explained by 'natural selection'. The viruses/infections that do not have a resistance to the chemicals being used to combat them will die out, and those that had the resistances already will live on. This could go on a number of times, as we understand the building blocks of life are much more complex than we knew years ago. There is nothing new being added to their genetic properties... The same goes for insects becoming 'resistant' to pesticides... it's those who are already resistant that persist and reproduce.
And to answer what I mean by replicate:
make an exact copy of; reproduce.
"it might be impractical to replicate eastern culture in the west"
synonyms: copy, reproduce, duplicate, recreate, repeat, perform again; More
Please go ahead and teach this as fact to EVERYONE, because it replicates naturally and we can see it.

Wow are you really going to try and play the victim card also?
You were just attacking people for not believing in something that you admit knowing NOTHING about.
I don't think you even care if evolution is correct or not, all you seem capable of doing is attacking the creationists. Your justification is no different than creationists quoting Bible verses as treat scientists and their word like it's scripture.
Summary of the 'macro vs micro evolution' debate (terms I consider entirely arbitrary)
Yet you throw a fit when someone uses the terms . . .
