So, you accept scientific research like evolution, the big bang, et al?

I accept all forms of valid scientific research. What I reject is coupling the word evolution to silly just-so stories.

Shubee Doobee Doo, I think you think your thinker thunders, but your thinker thinks things asunder. If you you think and wonder are your thoughts thunder or are they merely asunder. Well no wonder. Your asunder thinking is cause for blinking. Your lack of thunder makes me ponder.

Would you think for a Shubee Snack?

Then you reject a valid form of scientific research, and one that has aided humanity more than any other, has the most solid evidence supporting the theory, and is based on a fact that use to perplex medical scientists. Things evolve, it's a fact, just as much as gravity, and we actually can explain evolution better than we can gravity, so much in fact that the theory of evolution is being applied in technology even.

Of course it's a claim by you. You're a fundie SDA who thinks Goddidit with magic and have now merely added yourself to the throng of cranks (mostly new agers) who think that by simply adding the word "quantum" to their mindless rambles that it somehow validates their pseudo-scientific BS.

Sure they do. They just don't know it. But you're right up there with Einstein and Hawking, after all you're the next Glen Miller!

Thank you kitten for making me laugh. You're the first evolutionist to admit to me that "silly just-so stories" are essential to what you call evolutionary science.

Sure, Shoob. Funny how you're unable to debunk it though. Your local fundie church still not decided to put you in charge yet? The fools!

Thanks for that confession. You're the second evolutionist to admit to me that "silly just-so stories" are to be believed if they can't be debunked.

Not at all.

We're just rejecting your rejection, due to your lack of evidence for your position.

If you had evidence to counter the evidence that we have for evolution, you'd be able to debunk it easily. So you just admitted to having no evidence.

That's not my claim. Evolution can be accepted if it can be demonstrated. And we can. And have. Numerous times. You object to it only because you're just another fundie amongst fundies who has theological/philosophical objections to reality.

Dear Kitten,

You need to have your vision checked. I believe in evolution. I simply reject the silly just-so stories that routinely accompany it.

There is more evidence of humans having a common ancestor to the other apes than there is evidence of gravity itself. Since we see that everything eventually merges into the same tree, then eventually you get to one common ancestor. Unless you are not a living organism, you have a common ancestor with everything somewhere on that tree.
