Attention Creationists!
Please go over to the SDA forum Topix.. on the thread entitled "ATHEIST HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS" the atheists are very annoying..they(the atheists)have invaded the SDA Christian forum..Come Help with the Debate please! Thanks a million dear Christians!!!!!! God Bless!

A Genomic Fossil Reveals Key Steps in Hemoglobin Loss by the Antarctic Icefishes

Abstract
Antarctic icefishes are the only vertebrates that do not have hemoglobin and erythrocytes in their blood. These startling phenotypes are associated in several icefish species with deletions of juvenile and adult globin loci, which in red-blooded teleosts are typically composed of tightly linked pairs of &#945;- and &#946;-globin genes. It is unknown if the loss of hemoglobin expression in icefishes was the direct result of such deletions or if other mutational events compromised globin chain synthesis prior to globin gene loss. In this study, we show that 15 of the 16 icefish species have lost the adult &#946;-globin gene but retain a truncated &#945;-globin pseudogene. Surprisingly, a phylogenetically derived icefish species, >>>Neopagetopsis ionah, possesses a complete, but nonfunctional, adult &#945;&#946;-globin complex. This cluster contains 2 distinct &#946;-globin pseudogenes whose phylogenetic origins span the entire Antarctic notothenioid radiation, consistent with an origin via introgression.
>>>> Maximum likelihood ancestral state reconstruction supports a scenario of icefish globin gene evolution that involves a single loss of the transcriptionally active adult &#945;&#946;-globin cluster prior to the diversification of the extant species in the clade.
>>>>Through lineage sorting of ancestral polymorphism, 2 types of alleles became fixed in the clade: 1) the &#945;-globin pseudogene of the majority of species and 2) the inactive &#945;&#946;-globin complex of N. ionah. We conclude that the globin pseudogene complex of N. ionah is a “genomic fossil” that reveals key intermediate steps on the pathway to loss of hemoglobin expression by all icefish species.

What is wrong with you?
I can go through these threads and see many people post evidence.
Point two you should tattoo to your arm because maybe then you'll remember it.
There is no proof only evidence.
Can you understand this?
No I guess you can't I've already told you this dozens of times.
Your bible is not evidence, that is your assertion. Where is the actual evidence?

Here's an excellent debate on the BBC between various faiths, denominations and scientists.

The question is: Is it time for all religions to accept evolution. There are a couple of young earth creationinsts, too.

It's long, so save it for when you have some time.

Like a lazy Sunday before the superbowl.

You are a brainwashed clone that needs education. Find out the meaning of God, and you will know whether the almighty can be created.

We don't need shit as evidence. You have no evidence either, but just mere assertions that is subject to wild guessing.

Easy Charles, its not Rocket science. The meaning of God or why God has meaning or God has meaning, the God of many meanings.....anyway you say it its still has no meaning! Its meaningless, less meaning than any meaning..........brainwashing comes to mind!

Any one that bears the title God, I am that i am, Elshaddai, Elohim, Nissi, Shalom, Adonai, Tsedkenu, Rapha etc, can never be created, Yahweh is his name.
