Is the word "and" really to much for you to type? Your writing is bad enough without the laziness. Instead of putting three question marks in a row, put them after each question.

Their have been twenty two different hominid fossil species found that are clearly transitions between common ape and modern human.
Now fossils are rare, yet we have 22 so called, missing links. Yet you act as if their are none.

Evolution often takes a long time, or comes in spurts when the environment changes severely. Man has not been around long enough to expect to see any dramatic or noticeable changes in most species. We have seen some changes in some species though.

The changes in ape to man occurred over millions of years. We have less than ten thousand years of written history, so just do the math.

Yet nearly all of your positions are of the Republican Party. Now if you had broke from the party on personal freedoms like gay marriage and abortion, then I would think maybe you were a libertarian. But you are almost perfectly in line with the Republican Party. If it walks like a duck.....

So lets say we can blame instinct when cats kill and don't eat. That still doesn't mean we should use humans as targets when honing our sniping skills. So my point still stands that just because animals do it, doesn't mean we should.
There are some Really (really!) twisted and warped (as in sick in the head!) people in this world!

Heck with more churches these days (because those type refuse to acknowledge any benefit of spiritual guidance that such may provide, will just keep bashing any good such may do)... and with so many of those kinds of sick in the head, dysfunctional, depraved types running around now, we need licensed head shrink booths on every street corner, with protective services for the victims that the sickin the head suck into their sickness on every street corner!!
Gaw, such rampant twisted and warped depravity!
Sick, sick, sick in the head people these days.

It doesn't matter WHAT you think so long as it is within the realms of regulations pertaining to, and isn't of your geneTics!

And the next time you think it DOES matter-go try peeing out a watermelon--blame it all on someone else because YOU ate it and it didn't digest right..and then try and sue the givverment to grow it because for YOUR own STUPIDITY, you can't.

Or reform welfare and place it right where it needs to be place thus making STUPID females ACCOUNTABLE for their OWN stupid actions again!!

Yes, blaming Bush for the storm would be stupid. Blaming him for poor response leadership makes sense. But to be fair, their was poor leadership by the local left also.

So LOGIC SHOULD tells those of us with some actual sense then...

1.Evolution was occuring WAY before any damn "we evolved frum any dam ignorant ape" theory-and so musch for the ignorant "lets just act like animals EXCUSE" to be ignorant.
and
2. The Bible is a BOOK, written by men- of historical beliefs, customs and cultures, places, peoples, and events, in ways of that THEY may have seen the world at the time, with nothing for certain (THEN either) MORE known than that aside from "In the begininng there was light" most likely because it's pretty damn hard to write anything in the dark!!!

Yeah WAY more LOCAL fault than anything else -as far as re-establishing anything after the storm.

(and how much STUPID did we endure-listening to so many STUPID blame a potus for a storm that they were WELL WARNED about-- but chose rather instead to be STUPID and ignore the WELL promoted WARNINGS!!!)

1)marriage means being a full Member of our society huh?!?!sounds a little Marxist to me. I guess not being married means I'm not a full member then right ?my point is I believe there is a fundamental reason man n woman come together to b in marriage is to cont society in the optimum way to advance society.. U can differ in opinion but that's mine n millions of others who think that way... Weird how everyone who don't believe in God act as if there superior in intellect n understanding then the db God loving person..
2) I believe there is a Creator u don't . U can't prove to me the evolution happened now can u? If we started as bacteria n went to apes then became Humans then where are all the phases of these transformations at. How come we don't see differ phases if ape to man running around??? Sounds as if that idea takes more faith than God loving folks need....tel me before the Torah (old testament ) to define sin what was sin then.. The Torah has defined sin for everyone... Also defined marriage too. N defined homosexuality is wrong as wel along w many other sins..btw I think it's a stated right just as I think every law should

Evolutionary Theories on Gender
and Sexual Reproduction
© 2003 Brad Harrub, Ph.D. and Bert Thompson, Ph.D.
All Rights Reserved.
Reproduced by Permission from TJ, www.AnswersInGenesis.org
Abstract
The origin and maintenance of sex and recombination is not easily explained by natural selection. Evolutionary biology is unable to reveal why animals would abandon asexual reproduction in favor of more costly and inefficient sexual reproduction. Exactly how did we arrive at two separate genders-each with its own physiology? If, as evolutionists have argued, there is a materialistic answer for everything, then the question should be answered: Why sex? Is sex the product of a historical accident or the product of an intelligent Creator? The current article reviews some of the current theories for why sexual reproduction exists today. Yet, as these theories valiantly attempt to explain why sex exists now, they do not explain the origin of sex. We suggest that there is no naturalistic explanation that can account for the origin and maintenance of sex.
Introduction
iology texts illustrate amoebas evolving into intermediate organisms, which then give rise to amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and, eventually, humans. Yet, we never learn exactly when or how independent male and female sexes originated. Somewhere along this evolutionary path, both males and females were required in order to ensure the procreation that was necessary to further the existence of a particular species. But how do evolutionists explain this? When pressed to answer questions such as,“Where did males and females actually come from?,”“What is the evolutionary origin of sex?,” evolutionists become silent. How could nature evolve a female member of a species that produces eggs and is internally equipped to nourish a growing embryo, while at the same time evolving a male member that produces motile sperm cells? And, further, how is it that these gametes (eggs and sperm) conveniently “evolved” so that they each contain half the normal chromosome number of somatic (body) cells?[Somatic cells reproduce via the process of mitosis, which maintains the species’ standard chromosome number; gametes are produced via the process of meiosis, which halves that number. We will have more to say about both processes later.]
The evolution of sex (and its accompanying reproductive capability) is not a favorite topic of discussion in most evolutionary circles, because no matter how many theories evolutionists conjure up (and there are several), they still must surmount the enormous hurdle of explaining the origin of the first fully functional female and the first fully functional male necessary to begin the process. In his book, The Masterpiece of Nature: The Evolution of Genetics and Sexuality, Graham Bell described the dilemma in the following manner:
‘Sex is the queen of problems in evolutionary biology. Perhaps no other natural phenomenon has aroused so much interest; certainly none has sowed as much confusion. The insights of Darwin and Mendel, which have illuminated so many mysteries, have so far failed to shed more than a dim and wavering light on the central mystery of sexuality, emphasizing its obscurity by its very isolation.’[1]

So the Republican Party that's that there should be no laws restricting personal use of any drug or substance an adult wishes to put into their own body.... The Republican Party agrees that the death penalty should be abolished.... The Republican party agrees that all ground troops should be withdrawn from any country in the world that does not 100% follow the US Constitutional Rule of Law in their governance... The Republican Party agrees that All Subsidies to All private industries should be stopped..... The Republican Party thinks the Federal Reserve should be abolished.... The Republican party agrees that Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, SSI, Federal Department of Education, The IRS and several other Federal agencies need to be methodically disassembled over time... The republican party agrees that All Federal and State Laws should sunset every 10 years and require re-authorization or removed from the books.....

Didn't know that....

Neither Evolution or Science have an explanation as to how life came into being,they can not account as to how intelligence came into being nor can they explain the following
How could nature evolve a female member of a species that produces eggs and is internally equipped to nourish a growing embryo, while at the same time evolving a male member that produces motile sperm cells? And, further, how is it that these gametes (eggs and sperm) conveniently “evolved” so that they each contain half the normal chromosome number of somatic (body) cells?

For answers,they have unexplainable and unprovable events that supposedly occured billions or millionns of years ago.
So,if one wants evidence of these events,one has to travel back in time a couple of million billion years and try to figure out,where on Earth these events may be taking place.
GRRRREEEAAAT...
To find God,you need not travel back in time to any specific location.
All you need is the desire to want to establish a personal relationship with him...
To do so,you need to personallly seek him...
Nobody else can do it for you.
Those who keep regurgitating the same nonsense"You have no evidence supporting any God" after beind advised as to how to get to know God ,will keep believing fables that only make sense to the most extreme fans of Science Fiction.
To those of us who have come to know God,believe he is real.
Attempts by unbelievers to deny God,as if by doing so,God will cease to exist,are futile and fruitless.
Our God lives,,,From everlasting to everlasting...
