Indeed sir... Since evolutionist cannot give an origin for their theory one can only assume that the beginning of ToE is the first reproduction of the simple cell... How does that violate Cause and Effect?
1) How did this simple cell reproduce?
It's already impossible that it's even here but now this SIMPLE cell somehow has genetic information to pass on... But it's not designed?... Then from where?... We have effect yet no cause...
2) Why did the first cell reproduce?... What's the point? Reproduction has no benefit for this simple cell... If anything this is against evolution as offspring would compete for food...
Any thoughts?
Whoa hold on there. You initiated this by saying (paraphrasing here) "Science points to Intelligent Design and not Evolution". For your initial piece of "evidence" you're saying because science doesn't fully explain the origin of life (which is not part of evolutionary theory, by the way) then that's equivalent to evidence of intelligent design? Are you serious? That's a logical conclusion to you?

If you are referring to me, we've only just begun. You still have 6 more items to cover (once we dispense with this first item). In case you hadn't noticed, it's been gorgeous outside and as much fun as it is to read your insane ramblings, I have a lot of yard work to do. That and my golf clubs were crying for attention yesterday. So, if I don't respond quickly, it's not because I'm admitting defeat. Trust me, I'll let you know if that happens.

I believe that evolution by design is possible... And that was hard to accept but one has to look with unbiased eyes... The only thing I wish to convey is evolution is no where near the fact that we are lead to believe... Anyone who takes a close unbiased look can clearly see this no matter what they believe...
Being taught in schools is one thing but being taught as absolute truth is wrong... There is a line between teaching a theory or just trying to destroy someone's faith...
According to Science humans haven't been here very long compared to all the other animals, it's odd to me that if Evolution is true, then why isn't there anything else on this planet flying around with Medal wings in a jet. There is definitely something different about the human race. To be as far advanced as we are from all the other animals on this planet and to be here the shortest amount of time should be enough to make one at least wonder about the existence of the Creator who was before anything that we know existed.

Every new fossil type found is an intermediate of another animal. So you clearly would not know an intermediate if it slapped you in the face.

Who says the universe is random chaos? You keep making false claims and try to prove these claims as wrong. That is called a straw man argument. Try arguing what we actually say, not what your propaganda is telling you the argument is.

Again, for species to change it takes a lot of changes. This takes time. Usually millions of years. Have we had millions of years to test? No.

I've been sitting on the sidelines of this one, casually munching my popcorn, when I remembered that for a while when I was 18 I had a 16 year old girlfriend. Does that mean I'm a pedophile too? I don't think so.
It seems to me that you're fixated on conflating statutory rape with pedophilia.

Yep, humans are completely different from all other animals on the planet. Well, except for that pesky 98% DNA match we have with chimpanzees. And if you're willing to overlook the ~80% genetic similarity between humans and cows...etc

We have better developed brains. That's why we're able to fly around with metal wings in a jet.

Natural mechanisms? Really?... Have you ever read any research on Casimir Effect? Or Higgs Boson (God particle)...
For that matter have you researched anything?
Belief in God is religion (faith) no one is arguing that... Ok? Understand now?
It's is evolution that makes the claim that science stands behind it... Ok then the burden of proof lies on evolution...
Now about intermediates : please show me the evolution of just one species!!
And I mean the fossils!! Not sketch artist painting from bone fragments on Talkorigins ... We have millions of them right? Shouldn't be a problem then huh? I can't wait to see the development of wings on fossils step by step... Or maybe how wolfs became wales... I'll be waiting!!!
Science has a bad habit of naming things that common folk do not understand. The god particle is not named due to it being of a god, just as "theory" in science is not just an idea, but is accepted fact based upon overwhelming evidence. "Nothing" is even relative, as their is no absolute "nothing" in the universe, as far as science can measure. What might be called nothing is actually filled with energy. Energy can become matter.....

So you do not accept fragments of bone as evidence yet you accept the idea of god without a single fragment of anything to examine? Double standards?

I wish bones fossilized more easily so as to show the people who have no understanding of what a fragment of bone can tell us.
Can you not see that the bones are not plentiful in general, thus we must rely on fragments to examine.

Their are bones of an upright walking ape, so just what is the religious explanation for that? What is the explanation for Neanderthals and other large brained upright hominids?

Birds came hundreds of millions of years ago. That is a long time for a fossil to survive intact, yet we do have a few.
A wing is not incredibly different than an arm of a dinosaur. They have the same basic structure. Feathers and scales are of the same material, just formed differently. The fossils show a cross between the traits of a dinosaur and a bird. What is your explanation for that?Is it just some crazy coincidence and has zero connection? You seem to wish their is no connection to keep your superstitious beliefs. I do not believe in your god no matter if their is a connection or not.

Actually I'm a bit more tolerant of a 18yo and a 16 years old that I might sound but The Point became important when the poster insisted that age was not the issue and development was... There are 12 and 13 year old's that are well developed... There are 8 yo's that have given birth... My Personnel view is that if you are 18 or older, walk away from anyone under 18 as fast as your feet can get to steppin... Don't flirt, don't hang out, don't be alone with... Your life can be destroyed before you realize what hit you....

And Never consider the development level of a Child when you formulate your world view on sexuality... Was being a bit over the top by design.....

You are wrong. There is no "variation of term" in a scientific term, only a variation of how stupid people misuse it. And in this case, there is simply me understanding the term and its correct usage, and you refusing to do so (even when an internet worth of fact is against you) because you are a resentful sh!t head that doesn't like being proven wrong.

Here's the part that you should have actually read before quoting, moron. I don't care what people who are WRONG say about this. Quit spreading stupidity and use the f*$king term correctly. Half of the worlds problems are caused by stupid people using words incorrectly. I provided plenty of information concerning the correct usage of the term and you have no excuse for not utilizing it (other than that you prefer winning over the truth, in which case you're a terrible person).

Face it, you ARE wrong, I AM right, and no amount of lying about me will change that fact. Of course, you fought for the freedom to lie about people once upon a time, so have at it.

That's because you're stupid and don't understand evolution. The goal of evolution isn't to fly planes or make computers or land on the moon. Evolution has NO goal. It's merely the process through which things that are better at surviving survive to make more offspring. Big muscles and teeth will get you VERY far in this world, if you hadn't noticed. Once you're at an apex, and can pretty much eat anything you want, you have nothing forcing you to get smarter. There is no increase in the survival rate of smarter members of the species. So smartness doesn't become more prevalent. Hopefully, based on that, you can figure out how soft squishy things like us would have developed different traits.

Really... if you people would spend 10% of the time you spend attacking evolution, instead, actually learning what evolution is, you wouldn't look like such mouth breathing wastes of life.
