You don't "believe" in Evolution because, unlike xtianity, Evolution doesn't ask you to believe in it.
"Believe" is what you do when you have no evidence.
You are an Atheist ,as is Peter Singer and the topic is not Evolution , it is Morality among Atheists and how Evolution does not provide a moral code
Singers brand of Atheist morality finds it acceptable to have sex with a corpse , with any type of animal , infanticide He finds this type of behaviour morally justifiable
I have searched the internet to see if I could find an Atheist who disagreed with Singers moral code..........To date I have found none....
That I haven't found a dissenting voice is not surprising . I have on occassion stated that the Atheist faith does not have a moral code , each individual does as he sees fit according to his/her desires....
That is why Atheists can claim to have never committed an act for which they need be ashamed...

It does that a lot.
So does Science sometimes...as do a lot of other things. That's just the IMperfections of life as we know it in a nutshell.

Absolutely.

While I agree we have never found any giants and all the claims to such I have seen are fakes we do have a race of red haired elongated people that were a real species and most of science have ignored them... Later assorted people around the planet attempts to emulate the skull shape by deformation and much of science then ascribed all elongated skulls to deformation ...
There are differences in anatomical design that separates the results of deformation from natural elongation seen such as more massive jaw structures, larger cranial capacity and number of plates in the skulls....
At the moment there is a group that are performing DNA testing of the skulls and also using a technique to date the actual cut surface of stone to get an approx date of quarry ....
Now that with the uncovering of Gobekli Tepe and other sites we are pushing the rise of modern humans back to the edge of the Ice Age with the possibility of a period during the 100,000 year long glacial period of a planet with two, three to four separate and distinct species of hominids living on the planet ...
There are some major problems with the long held narrative of mans ascension including direct evidence of machine tool usage in pre-history... And many of the sciences are being pulled kicking and screaming toward the idea of a different narrative...
But has nothing to do with religion... But could be the seed that leads to the myths of assorted religions...
Too bad they didn't have more evolved "writing" tecnhinques at the time eh Q?

We know all about your moral code and how it has you defending the killing of people because they exercise freedom of religion. How you support genocide and slavery and how killing homosexuals meets with your approval.

That's what happens when you presume superiority by cherry picking your ethics from ancient books of myth and superstition.

Thankfully, Evolution has resulted in human minds that can think for themselves, so we have no need for your ju-ju and superstitious mumbo jumbo.

I saw the circular tunnel that was made through the granite in the video. I wonder if they find anything on the stones if they will be allowed to test what type of tool could have made such a perfect cut thousands of years ago.
I did not know about the theory of Crustal Shift. Reading a article on it now.

Interesting post. A discovery of an ancient highly advanced tool that could do this would be a monumental find
yes it would but could you truly expect to find a metal based tool after such a time lapse... any that would have survived corrosion and weathering that were on land would have been used to they were non existent by the assorted rise and falls of past civilizations.. As it is it's pretty rare to find a metallic artifact from the bronze age and that was not that long ago.. And Bronze is fairly non corrosive and too soft to for much serious tool use, might work ok to carve a hunk of sand stone or limestone but a hunk of granite is a whole different thing... Anyone that has worked in a machine tool shop with a granite weigh table and bronze bushing can attest to that...

or that science overlooked other types of geological variances that could've contributed to your "machined" hypothesis.
(AND that a "crustal shift" could've actually contributed to something like that as well!)
No... Tool marks are tool marks and stone types are stone types... there is No Evidence that some weird solar output of some strange Unknown geological variance cause granite to be softer at some past point in time after it first crystallized from magma..

Testable, Repeatable & Verifiable evidence is what I go by... I can be totally wrong on my interpretation of said evidence and i may change my views if new evidence is found that can be tested, repeated and verified but never would I make my views based on the lack of evidence... That would be ignorant...

Illustration about Evolution
If I walk in the countryside and find that some wood and stones have been shaped into a house, it should be obvious to me that someone was there before me and built it; right?... But, now, would it be logical for me to conclude that flowers growing alongside the house resulted just from chance? If I feel that way I need to look closely and notice the intricate design, because I know that it is a basic truth that where there is design there must be a designer. This is what the Bible tells us at Hebrews 3:4.
NOW THAT WAS EASY AND MAKES SENSE!
We are fully aware of why your mind prohibits you to think beyond this rudimentary thinking. And it is understandable why you cannot understand the science. Much science contradicts our animal instinct mind. And you just demonstrated animal instinct mind. And humans are but animals. Yet you guys feel you cannot be in that low category. How ironic.

Like I said before ...Let the course be taught as an elective. You all have good p.oints. We have to have more faith in these young minds to be able to choose what they want to learn . High school is about narrowing down your towards your field of study .
If a science class can teach about evolution ...why can't a religion class teach about God? It doesn't matter what we believe , it's about having the freedom to choose
A religion class can teach about god, but the class in question is not a religion class, it is a class on one book of one religion out of many. Talk about narrow and restricting choices.
I would be fine with a class that teaches the history of gods in our world. The kids might find it interesting how they borrow ideas from each other. As if man made.
