The origin life is not part of evolution.

That is a related, but different field. That is called abiogenesis.

And there still may be evidence of how it happened. People studying this problem are looking at specific molecules in our bodies.

Now as I said, evolution itself has been observed in several ways. We have observed it in the laboratory many times. We have observed it in the field. We have observed it in the fossil record. And we have observed it in our DNA in more than one way. We can also observe it through homology.

You can deny it as much as you like. We can show you how it is observed over your baseless denials.

Mee, what do you believe and why?

I am betting that your beliefs are insanely ridiculous. They probably involve and invisible friend and magic spells.

Of course there is no scientific evidence for creation, it happened in the unobservable past you fool. Tell that to your evolutionist fanatics that their evolution, if it happened also happened in the past. That's why they have no evidence but lack the balls to admit it.
Honest scientists rather than being embarrassed to be creationists will tell you that no one has ever observed the evolution of any major group of animals or plants. They write that in books on creation which you have never read, lier.

Evolution happens every day. It is going on right now. In fact the pace of global evolution seems to be increasing, which is an area currently under study. It may be due to global warming or decreasing habitats/food sources.

I can't believe you think we can observe the past or may be I should seeing as to whom I'm dealing with. Oh my word!
Now, you were once born weren't you? Try observing that event or ask the scientist you worship the most to do it for you. Get the best instruments. You have my sympathy!

My birth does not need to be observed by me. All people are born and receive a certificate of such from a licensed physician or proxy. It is attested in the public record and by the testimony of both of my parents. It is recorded in the archive of the hospital where I was born and the state in which I was born.

In just the same way scientists collect information about evolution I can dig up information about my birth. Further, genetic testing can determine who my parents are and what their ethnic background is. There are labs that I could send my DNA to that could tell me where my ancestors were from (which I already know to be southern England, Germany and Northern Sicily).

Fool, people in the present do not observe the past. If grandparents observe birth of their grandchildren they can only do it as it happens ie in the present. If they miss it by a few a few minutes, they will never observe it. People do not observe the past - get it!

You are being overly legalistic in your thinking.

We make observations in the present of the evidence of past events.

You mean the Devil taught you Evolution & you danced with him. Happy Tango

Science taught me evolution.

The Devil was too busy teaching you lies about the Bible to bother with me.

"Literal and inerrant" are modern inventions. They are primarily a product of the Fundamentalist cults that started up in the mid 1800's.

I am aware of many religions that accept evolution, but none that worship it. Ergo, evolution cannot be a religion nor a religious belief.

"Bronze Age" Man reasoned to dispute a false proposition, he did not laugh at it for he was not that stupid. For your information there was no Bronze Age - you have to be dumbed-down to believe in a Bronze Age. You have been sold a bill of goods that people now know better. No they don't, they just think they do. Aristotle, Pluto, Pythagoras were far much more intelligent than the idiots who worship science today.
Read Scripture (assuming you can read) & you will find that God never conjures up let alone with magic. Are you that uneducated? He created the universe out of nothing ie ex-nihilo, now that makes more sense - much more sense- than the universe created itself in some kind of Big Bang. A better term would be Big Nonsense, it violates laws of causality. As for life from none-life, that also violates a universal rule ie ALL life comes from pre-existing life & not from a soup. There's only one reason anyone can believe in life from soup: dumbing-down. You are dumbed-down squared.
Of course God can make a snake talk if He wants to, don't be so stupid! He can also give atheists over to their stupid beliefs such as Evolution.

Tell you what: you show us the very best piece of evidence that God exists, and we'll give it serious consideration. However, if we manage to show you how the "evidence" is nothing more than a logical fallacy, you stop telling us that science is bullshit. Deal?
