History has been rewritten( though FALSE).
So what you're saying is that it's all a big conspiracy even though you have no evidence because the big conspiracy wiped out all evidence?

So far your "divine interventions" have appeared to be less than impressive.

Ofcourse Jesus is the founder of the Christian faith, even Paul stated that in all his epistles.
You mean besides actually appearing thus proving it's existence?

I can quote too:

"I worry because everyone seems to look up to me and it's making me a little uncomfortable. I can try but I can't solve every problem. I don't know if I can live up to this... myth they want me to be."
-JLA #6, Grant Morrison

SUPERMAN: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana: humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
FLASH: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
SUPERMAN: "To catch them if they fall."
-JLA #4, Grant Morrison

And of course:

"This looks like a job for Superman!" Numerous sources.

<quoted text>By all means, you can keep beating up your caricature. But it has no bearing at all on what evolution actually is. That is why you're getting everything wrong.

And yes, brown eyes are a mutation. So are blue. In fact blue didn't exist prior to 10,000 years ago because it arose due to mutation.

Of course that was 4,000 years before the universe even existed.
"And yes, brown eyes are a mutation"

Boy are you scrapping bottom.
For brown eyes to be mutation you would need to know what the color of the first eye was.

And a again they are not mutation. Color of eyes and other things along those lines are dictated by flipping on and off genes. Nothing new just on or off switches. If the genes are there then nothing is new just different combination

Just as these binary number below can create a large number of differences but nothing new just different combination.

000000000000000000000000001

000000000000000000000000011
000000000000000000000000100

And so on

000000000000010000100000100
000000001000110011100000110

And on and on.
Lots of combination but nothing of new creation just on off switches.

<quoted text>Then you are astoundingly progressive for a creationist. However, it is indeed the creationist argument that Adam and Eve were "genetically perfect."

As I've heard it, the running hypothesis/delusion is that because of their perfect genes (presumably from being directly created by God, I suppose), they and their children were able to inbreed without any adverse effects. After the Fall, the genome started degrading, and has been 'devolving' into random noise ever since.

If that sounded like nonsense to you, then your BS radar might still be functioning.
Sounds pretty accurate to me.

<quoted text>Mutation:

A change in the structure of the genes or chromosomes of an organism. Mutations occurring in the reproductive cells, such as an egg or sperm, can be passed from one generation to the next. Most mutations occur in junk DNA and have no discernible effects on the survivability of an organism. Of the remaining mutations, the majority have harmful effects, while a minority can increase an organism's ability to survive. A mutation that benefits a species may evolve by means of natural selection into a trait shared by some or all members of the species.

http://science.yourdictionary.com/mutation

Mutation is Not about suddenly growing gills. Its any change in the DNA sequence, anything from a tiny point mutation (single nucleotide change)to a whole gene or chromosome duplication.

Even discussing evolution with someone who learned about mutation by watching X-men movies is a waste of time.
"Mutation is Not about suddenly growing gills"

It's not the color of eyes!

And is more along the lines of gills then eye color.
