which part did you not understand the first time? are there any parts you are unclear about now?
Yes. If evolution was a slow process, then how do you explain the evolution of intelligence in a span of only thousands of years? If you could not see the flaws in that theory, then you have a problem.

It seem that you is cristianizing all religions!specialy Islam,the generations who have lived during the lifetime of their prophets and had been ocular witnesses connot be equal to the generations that came far after!as for islam,the reasons for what Muslims didnt write the speeches(hadith) of prophet muhamad during his livetime are because they were already writing the Quran and were afraid to intermingle the word of Gods to the words of Prophet Muhamad! They way until the end of the revelations to collect the different hadiths;according to us the original and authentic Gospel of jesus have been lost,corrupted by the jews because they belied his message they and people distort his message by writing several fake and contradictory gospels full of greek and roman legends..thats why christianity have failed!thats not the case of islam! stop generalizing about religions
Wow the prejudice is solid and incorrect.
Let me shove that straight back at your doorstep.

Start to wonder what you studied. Apperently it did not dent your religious myopia.
--- let's cram it all in one post.

From Mali? <- questionmark. If you do not want to answer then don't, but with a name like that!

And i really want to know what faction of islam you adhere to.
In that way you would also take away those christian and jewish generalisations that might be present with the other party.
Since it is also a misconception to think that islam is one big happy family.
And what do you know about fiqh?
From your debating style i can allready make some preliminary deductions.

hominids have been around far, far longer than a few thousand years...
try half a million or so.
look at the blooming of intelligence in humans in just the last few centuries.
your premise is severely flawed.

Humans have been around for about 200,000 years, and about 50,000 years ago we got smarter (probably developed language).

That's the latest i read about it. Just as the homonids were renamed. Ah, who can keep up.
Christine still uses the term, saw no chance to ask.

More correctly.
The are reclassed as Early Homo-Sapience, after genetic research.
But are distinct in bone features.

How many thousands of years
How did you figure that?
Do you have a link?

I did say thousand of years. You think a clueless great ape would invent language all of a sudden? If you understand anything about linguistics, you would know that all languages were not an accident. They are all linked to each other and something to do with consciousness. So how did we achieve consciousness without any type of intervention? Do animals learn new tricks on their own?

yes, animals do learn on their own.

so how did the other animals get their intelligence.(the same way we did. through evolution.)

hominids did not invent language all of a sudden as stated they were around for a long time.

it shows animals can learn... no god needed.

it shows that intelligence is not such a unique thing.

no reason that humans are even the ultimate species of this planet. i'm rooting for the octopi...

Who ever said language was developed suddenly? Actually there seems to be several different language groups that don't seem to be connected or related.

I believe I have heard of monkeys developing new behavior without human intervention, but sadly I can't remember where.
