Your ridicule of evolution in that post was based entirely on the false premise that "bigger is better". Yes, I know, you're thinking of the phrase "survival of the fittest", but even THAT doesn't equal "bigger is better". Adaptation is about being better suited to your environment. Sometimes becoming smaller is what is needed, and so it's what happens.
You want to deny evolution, okay.
So tell me, what do humans use their appendix for these days?
Why is it that we need a new flu vaccine every year?
Bit I'm sorry, but there are things I can remove from a brand new car, and it will run just as well, if not better. Things have a purpose, no matter if you think so or not.

I'm just saying oxygen levels are much different now, and that's mainly why thing are smaller :)

I still think the shark is a cool thing, and it makes a great white look like a gold fish.

so you agree on the fetus then?

I would agree that it renders your religion impotent and nothing more than heresy.

By the biblical description, the water didn't PUSH at all; it came down and covered the land. It did not rush in from one direction, which is what causes erosion-based canyons. And it did not do it in 40 days, a time factor you keep ignoring.

Many things can cause quick burial, from earthquakes and volcanoes to other animals. There have also been THOUSANDS of floods; not just one big one. Petrification of wood has nothing to do with other forms of fossilization, and it doesn't happen in 40 days either. It also requires constant immersion of wood in still, highly-mineralized water, which also isn't consistent with the biblical description.

No places say fossilization takes billions of years, but they will tell you it takes more than 6000.

Evolution means adapting to conditions, not necessarily getting bigger and stronger. As the oxygen-rich environment changed, being smaller became an advantage; smaller organisms also required less food. Smaller muscles require less intake to fuel and maintain. The modern dragonfly is amazingly efficient and a superb predator. THAT is what evolution is about.

Ok cp, you're smarter than this. Perhaps not the water, but what the water shoves through does the cutting.
As far as fossils, you need something to be buried quickly, like a flood, that's why we don't have as many. There was only one big one :)
Bury fresh cut wood in right conditions, and you get petrified wood, harder than rock, and it only takes a few years, not millions or billions as the guide at many places may tell you.
The great thing I love, is when one says you just don't understand.
What about dragon flies with 6 ft wing spans? They could take off your bug sheild and your hood. Lol
Is getting smaller and weaker evolving?

Which would be what? Adaptation. In other words, evolution.

The appendix no longer serves a purpose in the human body.

Your failure to address the fact that the influenza virus evolves regularly, hence the need for new vaccines regularly, is duly noted. Couldn't think of a way around it, huh?

Katie V.: "I link you to images of fetal brains showing a smooth cortex at 22 weeks. That is fact. At 22wks gestation, the brain is not formed for any sensory input or output. Therefore there is no possibility of a fetus feeling pain. Period."

No, Katie, not "period."
I recently reminded you of the subplate zone. You then cited a an article from the National Institute of Health website http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2...
That article alone places doubt on your antiquated theory regurgitated above.
Heck YOUR article even CLEARLY stated that a "FUNCTIONAL CIRCUIT" of the cortex forms in the suplate zone AT 18 wks gestation. It mentions the "precocious" subplate neurons, the subplate being "a highly DYNAMIC compartment," high degree of diversity among subplate neurons, "subplate nuerons are electrically active & "capable of firing action potentials into the cortical and subcortical circuitry," ... there's an "invasion of the subplate by the THALAMOCORTICAL AFFERENTS" (i.e. sensory information coming FROM the body). FYI: Thalamocortical & basal forebrain afferents make up 35% of the crebral wall by 16 weeks.
It is also worth mentioning that this 2010 document ADMITS much study is necessary to more fully understand the subplate zone.
For example:
"The data that we collected in this study only give preliminary information about the developing human cortex at each time-point."
"Further investigations of the gene expression, cell types & connectivity of the subcompartments within the large human subplate are required."
"The functional significance of plasma proteins synthesized by subplate neurons is not known..."
"Understanding of cell-type-specific gene expression, and development of early connections together with modern imaging methods will enable the more selective investigation of various neuropathologies involving the subplate."
(You poo-poo the subplate zone, but when subplate zone abnormalities exists schizophrenia, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. may result.)
You say you read the article, but you must have missed the parts about action potentials, early thalamocortical sensory input to subplate zone, "increased complexity in both subplate cell types & subplate arrangements."
Isn't it you who berates others for poor comprehension skills?
That's what I thought.
Period.
Your subplate zone is for building the cortex, not running it. Just like your hard drive. Without a working hard drive, your fancy internal programs will not work. Jeez. Learn to read. There's no sensory input or output with a smooth cortex. None. Period.

You mentioned Lucy recently. Mitochondrial DNA. Remember?

How does the story of Noah's descendants jibe with Lucy? One busy gal?

Just a,comment

Species do adapt ..think we are talker even ..so in that way we evolve .But within our own species,.

No crossing..between species ...Not naturally anyway ..

I know they cross breed ..But that's not evolution .
