Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Not one of the options although that would be a good fight between two fictional characters :)

You are a transitional form. Every living thing is. You don't know what evolution is because you waste more time trying to deny it than study it, if you knew anything about it, you'd not post something as stupid as you just did.

Really?/ I am aware i and all species transform over time. I can see that daily..

Well be so kind as to enlighten me then??

Since people like you and many others think man kind has ''evolved''!!! And in fact they would be dated records of fossils that prove this transition correct???

So what is the ''Theory of Evolution''??

Yes since the first Archaic Homo sapiens distinct differences have been identified. The first Homo Sapiens had larger thicker bones, thicker skulls, they tended to be shorter in general and brain mass is shrinking though intelligence is rising. They also tended to be more muscular and had bigger teeth. 30,000 ya today man was slightly different.

A transitional species was hypothesized, it was discussed where it would be located, about what time period it existed and what it would look like. It took 5 years to find it, but using the knowledge of evolution and the prediction was perfect, the creature existed exactly as was thought. The creature that bridged between fish and amphibian was found.

Jesus and Q are both works of fiction.

What one character is to you is irrelevant in this case. Personally I think Q would destroy him in under a minute and be ruling heaven and hell by lunch.

Q being the curious miscreant but not a murderer, would enjoy toying with the son of god, to humiliate but not to destroy him. What would be a comical play would be to throw Q , nomad , Khan, and Jesus together in a debate with Spock as the mediator.

How much do you know about fossils? If you want to know more, the Wikipedia article on them is a good place to start. It is very detailed for a relatively short work, and the references, suggestions for further reading, and external links provide access to more detailed studies if you want to delve into them at a more detailed level. Here's a link:

There are so many excellent articles describing the Theory of Evolution that are just a google away that asking anyone here to write a new one is not all that realistic. Again, Wikipedia is a good starting point. Avoid sites that are set up to refute the theory, though, as they distort the data. Conservapedia is probably the least useful source on the web.

Here's an idea why don't you get your God to prove he is real by creating an offspring between two species that can reproduce????(as above)

So during this research, do you guys find any signs of evolutionary transition taking place with the fossils?
One big problem many people have is that speciation tends to be messy. It is fairly common for a single ancestor species to produce several different descendant species. Some of these will die out (go extinct) and some will survive. But, because they are so closely related it is difficult in many cases to figure out *exactly* which were the species that died out and which were the ones that survived because *their* descendants were different still.

This means that the fossil record is closer to a collection of family pictures with dates, but no identification of who is married to whom, who was who's child, etc. If some of those pictures get lost in a storm, it can be quite difficult to determine exact genealogy just from those pictures. But we *can* say that this is a family that has changed over the generations.

So, yes, we do see evolutionary transitions. The best evidence for higher level transition is for fish to amphibian, reptile to mammal, dinosaur to bird. But we can also follow different lines of descent in the dinosaurs, or in different lines of mammals, or in snails, or in insects, or in horses, or in camels, or in.....

But it will be very difficult to know whether, say, archaeopterix was the ancestor of all modern birds or whether a closely related species from about the same time and having the same ancestor was. There is no question that it was closely related to that common ancestor, though.
