I see so you're telling me your warped understanding of the word is more correct then the real meaning of the original text.
"Speaking of which, why do you think that water rises Langy?"
Back at you, why is evaporation down 20% over the last 50 years world wide?
World wide temperature is up yet 20% less evaporation. What's up with that?
How is my understanding of anything warped? What do you mean by "the word"?

I know the answer to your question, first you have to answer mine.

Let's see if you have even a high school level of science education.

Perhaps, then, you could explain why Mark and John have Jesus dying on a DIFFERENT DAY?
Seems like a flaw to me, if a contradiction is a flaw.
I have not heard that one.

Did a Google search, very interesting.

Did you know that Jesus predicted the wrong amount of time that he would be dead?

Correction: three possible explanations to the origin of species in accordance to the stratta/fossil and biological species.
1. creation.
2. biological species given rise to new species (evolution).
3. spontaneous generation to ALL known different biologica species found on earth today and in the strata/fossil record.
Only possible answers to the origin of species!
As to #1...did god keep creating species? cuz that's wha tthe fossil record shows, yet no creation myths say that is how it happened..

think youa can toss that one out right off the bat...

This does not prevent life from changing over time. In fact that is precisely what we observe.
You are observing a fixed biological species with variation over time and that's it. The biolical species will ALWAYS remain the same. This fixed species concept follows the constant principle found in the laws of nature. You do know the laws of nature is fixed and universal don't you? Proposing an un-fixed concept violates these principles found in the laws of nature. Thought you should know this.

First of all, who said (how ever you are defining GOD) GOD creaed life on this planet? You're way over your head when it comes to creatioon. You need to understand what a species is before you start getting into ridiculing who created us because there is more then one answer and they have nothing to do with religon.

No, you are confusing clades with species. We have already observed evolution occur that violates your definition of species.

And no, no matter how many times you link it your definition is not the biological definition since that assumes that evolution is a fact.

I take it that you have never heard of ring species.

Anyone care to explain how a new species or mutant would reproduce and what are the chances of its survival?

Well according to your previous posts on this thread, there are evidence for evolution that have been tested repeatedly, so what happens when a mutant species reproduce?

That is just an incredibly stupid question.

Species evolve. All species are "mutant".

So do you care to ask a real question or are you just trolling?

I see you have no intelligent response. If we are all mutants, then define 'species'

A species is a group of animals that can interbreed with each other. There are probably better definitions but that will do for now.

It is hard to have an intelligent response to an idiotic question.

I know. They can't provide an actual definition for it because they know the terminology itself violates their theory.

No, there is no problem with the definition. You try to put an artificial limit on evolution.

Once again, I take it you have never heard of ring species.

No, it is idiotic to me, not to you.

Do you even know what evidence is? None of the other creatards here do.
