I can't speak for Dude, but I thought you were challenging us to refute Intelligent Design.
The only way I know to refute Intelligent Design is through "arguments of imperfections of nature."
So I'm afraid you got us!

Yankee Yahoo, fossils are no longer needed to "prove" evolution. And please don't lie about a creationist when your posts are full of cretinist nonsense claim. Here is a clue for you so that you don't give yourself away next time. Science does not have to and in fact cannot "prove" anything. Proofs are for math. Science develops theories and tests them. They start with hypotheses and build up from their. When a new idea is presented a huge number of scientists will try to shoot it down. If they fail others join in. If the idea is "correct" that is if it does not get disproved, and you can disprove a theory, it is eventually accepted. Evolution has been tested for over 150 years and it has not failed a test. Creationism has, and so has ID. You will notice there is no such thing as a theory of ID. Too often when an IDiot come up with something that is "irreducibly complex" it has usually been explained by the timethey get their idea out there. IDiots trail the scientific curve of discovery, they are never surfing the forefront.

Let me guess, you believe this interpretation of the data to be conclusive?

LOL But these are clearly evidence of the evolution of species becoming more human. That trend continues as they became more and more human, until well.... we start looking back at our history, and
discussing it on internet forums and such.

Pretty much. Unless you have a better theory science tends to stick with the theory that has evidence supporting it. What do you believe happened and what is your evidence that supports your belief.

Yes it is , but it is only one piece of evidence. There are many many more, like in the tens of thousands of little bits of evidence.
I'm sorry you feel the need to deny the truth. But you wont change the truth. I'm afraid it's the truth though sorry I didn't like it either. But after all .... all we really want is to know the truth.
The truth is we evolved from a more primitive being , but we still had the same things in mind. To live and love , I'm sure life was much harder for our distant relatives though.

I don't think you would convince some creationists unless you could dig up everybody before their own grandfathers.

The thing I find most interesting lately is that some cave paintings in Spain are now thought to be over 40,000 years old , and could be the work of neandertal. But even more interesting is the shape and their build and that they went underground during the period of extreme cold during the ice age. Let's see they were very short and stocky, they had red hair short necks with no noticeable waistline and presumably red beards and quite large noses.
Did I just describe a Dwarf ? Are Dwarves fabricated from our memory of the neandertal?

No one has a better theory, and the evidence does not SUPPORT anything. It is how we interpret the data, often biased by human delusions and misconceptions.

I don't know what happened. I don't care. I am not persuaded by any party in this matter. I just know the facts, and the fact remains is that evolution is just as much as a delusion as young-earth nonsense.

Like I said, all this has been a major setback to science. Try to think outside the box.

I'm not denying any truths. There are none in this case to deny. The tens of thousands, or even tens of millions, of little bits of evidence is still subject to INTERPRETATION. The evidence does not support anyone in this case.

More primitive being? Primitive, my friend, is relative. I want to know the truth, too. But no one has it yet when to comes to the origin of life. The universe is a very mysterious place, and the more we learn, the more mysterious, and LARGER, it gets.

I can believe we evolved from a more primitive humanbeing but not the ape. I am not trying to disagree or agree with anyone's findings, just stating my opinion on the subject.

And if i may ask..what are these facts you speak of? If they truly are facts i can assure you science has an answer for you.

I really hope you don't consider "magic" as fact.
