Suck it up. You are just another moron that does not know what peer reviewed research looks like. Quacker!
So says the lady (perhaps an incorrect term considering the condition of her waffle) that has no idea what is a peer reviewed article.

I suggest there is ample data to suggest the genome is deteriorating as Sanford suggesdted and evolutionists have merely hand waved their own data away.
The above is peer reviewed research that says the genome is deteriorating, you evotards!
So you acknowledge that over time genes are changing? Thank you. End of discussion. I win. That was easy.

Really? So ... no christian ever goes to the doctor, not one, not for anything, not even for an Aspirin? If you wanted to prove your religion was reality at all, you'd all avoid the doctor your whole lives, and never once get sick, not once. Then you'd have evidence to support your assertion.
No assertions here, except you just wanted to make things up. Some Surgical or Medical doctors do apply faith through prayers and it is really working for them unlike others who do not.

Again, you are also looking at one side of the coin. People do take drugs and yet still ended up dying. Why?
So, it is just a matter of faith. Faith is real, halleluyah!

No, I didn't think so. Funny how you claim an authority from a book you don't even have.

Cyril Babaev's work is on the internet. Be a man, check it and see the disappointment of your life. Until then. Keep playing.

The only "loser" here is the person who is asking for their critics to remain silent. I guess that's your only option when you can't support your claims with evidence.

Prove it. Provide a link to a document written by him in which he says that modern Germans can understand Old English.

If you don't, we'll know you're lying.

So now you want to digress. The fake that you are.
My post above does address the burden of proof that the genome could not possibly have evolved over billions of years.
Creation is supported. TOE is falsified.
The burden is now on you to supply some shred of evidence to the contrary instead of chasing your tail.
We creos already know you can't support your view. Prove me wrong.
You are the one who digressed from the topic. What a lying little hypocrite you are.

And yes, when you make a positive statement in a debate you are the one who must supply the evidence that supports your argument. The other side merely has to point out that you made a statement without evidence.

You have no idea how a scientific debate goes. We as evolutionists can supply all sorts of scientific evidence that supports the theory of evolution. You BY DEFINITION cannot provide scientific evidence that supports your side.

Scientific evidence supports or refutes a scientific theory or hypothesis. Without a scientific theory or hypothesis scientific evidence does not apply. Your side is too afraid to come up with scientific hypotheses, and remember you need to have a hypothesis before it can become a theory, since hypotheses are testable.

Though you cannot recreate "creation" if it occurred it should have left evidence behind. The observation of that evidence should enable you to make a hypothesis and when you have done that we can test it.

Until then when it comes to scientific evidence you do not have any.

That faith is still applicable (tenable) to date.

If this was even remotely true prayer would have extended the average life span not modern medicine.

This would be assuming the average person prayed wouldn't it? Or that the answer to that prayer wasn't medicine.

Too bad nothing on that page says that modern Germans can understand Old English.

It says only that "there is much more in common between Old English and German, than between Modern English and German."

Of course, one can just as easily say that there is much more in common between Modern English and Sanskrit then between Modern English and Chinese, but that doesn't mean that speakers of Modern English understand Sanskrit, does it?

I'm afraid that Charlie's "authority" doesn't support his claim.

So you don't believe in God nor faith. Having faith is the act of belief no matter what you call it. Faith is real. Please stick to your science and leave faith to the faithful. Science can debate faith all it wants you won't disprove it.

Than you. The last week or so I have been running through the definition of scientific evidence with several of our creationist "friends". Though they are quick to agree that scientific evidence should be agreed upon by everyone. And some even agree with the definition of scientific evidence that allows evidence to be used regardless of personal biases. Yet when it comes to admitting that there is scientific evidence for evolution all of them, with the possible exception of Bat Foy, have gone straight into denial mode.

That shows that they lack basic honesty. There are creationists that will admit to the fact that scientific evidence supports evolution and yet they still believe creationism. Though deluded they are at least honest. Our group, sadly, is both deluded and dishonest.
