no theory is 100% certain. you do not seem to be graspong the concept of a scientific theory. youcould research the concept before trying to debunk it...that might help and make it less foolish looking...

NEWS FLASH:
The geological column absolutely proves the age of the Earth.
The fossil-record sequence absolutely proves evolution.

Life resists change too much to make it work.
Quite the opposite actually, life is constantly changing and evolving all the time. This is way we have so many species and so many different races on this planet.

Evolution makes perfect logical since and its supported by the fossil record. If even one fossil was ever to be found out of order then yes evolution would be disproven but that has never and will never happen ..

So tell me because im Curious, What do you think created life as we know it today??

Wrong.
It relies on millions of years, as matter of math. The current measurable changes in any species by mutation, and by mutations that survive to the next generation to bring a positive change that enhances survive and natural selection, takes not only MILLIONS OF YEARS, but BILLIONS.
The math does not lie.
But you do.
What is your source.(Your yapping so loud)
And what are your definitions for:
1)Current measurable changes.
2)mutation
3) mutations that survive to the next generation.
4) a positive change.
4 a) AND
5)enhances natural selection
6)survives natural selection.

7)that has would take not just million but billions of years.
8) what math would be applicable for an event that is current and spans eons?

Not national politics. The gospels were written by men trying to influence the church into going certain ways... so they made up things and put them into the mouth of Jesus.
Or maybe, what you read or heard were said by men trying to influence others into going certain political ways... so they made up things.

Have you really consider all thing?

Then show me a statement that theory is defined as 100% certainty.

If not, then you are foolish looking.

And it's one of our most messed up theories. totally incomplete. we can't even get it to jibe from classical to quantum physics (big to small for you, xxooxx)

still it works good enough for nasa to use our gravitational culculations to land a used up probe on a spinning, tumbling asteroid...freakin' amazing incomplete theory, that ol' bugger gravity!

You confuse the "LAW" of gravity, with the "THEORY" of gravity, which are totally two different concepts.

Politicians are all liars? Is that your point?

I agree.

Obama is just Bush. This is his fourth term. Not a dime's worth of difference...

The same is true of church politics. The New Testament is made up of many competing propaganda works. Written long after Jesus death. None of it based on reality.

So what your point? Somebody told you that,(with no doubt, a political agenda in mind) so you believed them LOL!

But the words stand on their own merit...this is how you tell the difference.
