Looks like I missed Tzar again. He must have already telepathically communicated with his invisible master and went to bed.

Did the children of Adam and Eve ever wonder why mom and dad had no belly buttons?
Like any good creationists, the children didn't wonder about much. And like good creationists, Adam and Eve lied to them and said they lost them in a bet with a snake.

<quoted text>For the earliest of species we have to rely on DNA evidence. We share quite a bit of our DNA with chimps. Less with orangutans and gorillas. Even less with monkeys. Less yet with cats and dogs. Still less with snakes and turtles. Less yet with fish. And still less with plants. But even with plants we share roughly 50% of our DNA. The nested hierarchy implies, extremely strongly, that we are related to plants.

Not very closely, but we are related. Biology has all sorts of nested hierarchies that show that the theory of evolution is true. In fact biologists feel that their evidence is stronger than the fossil evidence. They may be right.
"We share quite a bit of our DNA with chimps"

And Bananas.

50% with Bananas
2% or less with Neanderthal

<quoted text>Just one problem. Dinos had feathers before birds. You forget that dinos were around for MILLIONS of years.

The Almighty Tzar wrote, "That's like saying squirrels will evolve into pine martens."

False.

The Almighty Tzar wrote, "They both exist now."

True. Enjoy being right just this once. It may not happen again for a LONG time. Not when you attempt to discuss science anyway.

The Almighty Tzar wrote, "Science claims the Cambrian explosion was an explosion of life forms. The Cambrian explosion is only documented with fossils."

And those fossils show a progression from soft-bodied organisms to hard-shelled life forms, just as evolution would predict. Hard-bodied organisms therefore were able to survive better, producing even more variation and making fossilization even more common.

The Almighty Tzar wrote, "Fossils are formed from quickly buried DEAD animals."

Not often.

The Almighty Tzar wrote, "The Cambrian explosion was really the Cambrian extinction, it was that last record of thousands of life forms.
Christians know this by anther name,
Noah's World Wide Flood. "

Sorry, but a period which lasted millions of years is not evidence of a 40 day catastrophe which would have turned the Earth into another sun. You are quite simply so wrongily wrong you couldn't get any more wrongily wrong if you tried to be wrong. It just comes naturally to you.
Nope that was a bird.

You don't even know what defines a bird. All you will do is run to AIG or wikipedia and start pasting their answers. This is why you guys win at the court when you try and destroy the Constitution.

If it is a dinosaur with feathers, it is still a dinosaur. Keep clicking those heals together Dorothy. Not in Kansas yet.

No. It is a logical deduction.

According to this the U.S. is 5% "convinced atheist". And the world is 13%.

Your polls are inaccurate and out of date.
