It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution debate

I would like to respond to the letter 'Recent letter offered no examples of Darwinian disingenuousness,' . He responds to an article with, 'He says evolution is 'so riddled with holes,' yet fails to provide a ... Full Story

What are you talking about?
No data, no dice. that means a reference and/or a link.
Thanks for more nothing.
I gave you a reference. In fact, you gave you a reference, Mt. 10:32, but apparently you didn't check it yourself. This might work better for you if you choose the next point.

Verse 27 does. Unless god lied or Moses refused.
dipstick.
Ex. 34:27
"And Jehovah went on to say to Moses:“Write down for yourself these words, because it is in accordance with these words that I do conclude a covenant with you and Israel.”

Verse 28 states, "... And he (that would be YHWH; see Deut. 4:13) proceeded to write upon the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Words."

What a maroon. Now he has forgotten the start of the chapter.

It isn't.
So, the layngeal nerve in the giraffe is a poor bit of engineering. Thanks for agreeing, though it took way too long to get you to admit it. You recognize the error in such a design (if it were designed), and since evolution is merely about altering existing structures and "good enough" rather than what's optimal, evolution explains the giraffe's laryngeal nerve better than "God did it." You resist answering questions directly for exactly this reason. When you do, it can only ever lead to you contradicting your religious apologetics. Welcome to logic. As I've warned you before, logic is not your friend.

Actually, I have consistently referred to oldest manuscripts and original languages in resolving questions/challenges, haven't I? You are among those constantly referring to English versions to try to make your points, aren't you?
Yes, you've been quite successful with that diversionary tactic - if clouding the already stagnant waters that is what you wish to call "resolving questions/challenges". The plain English is that the Bible in its earliest form was no more substantial or accurate than it is with the NWT refinements.

I investigate the NWT continually. That's how I know it uses the ancient manuscripts and translations. It appears to be you who is aftraid to investigate. You just accept the summary statements of others (Galatians 6:5).
Reading the Fredrick Franz Bible and other GB approved propaganda is not the same thing as "investigate."
I understand that you aren't allowed to, but have you ever read "Crisis of Conscience," KAB?

That is micro, and no one is arguing about that.

Anyone who asks why apes are still around is just showing a complete lack of understanding of evolution. We came from a common ancestor.
Then please provide where this has been observed, tested, and replicated, which is demanded by the scientific method for a valid theory. I bet you can't!

If you don't believe in evoltion I suggest you never ever visit your doctor again as that is what all his knowledge and skill assumes. So you can't trust his knowledge.
Every doctor and scientist I know are creationists and reject Darwinism. Kindda blows your biases, huh?

Maybe that will lead the the non-believers into becoming victims of evolution themselves.

If he create us he fell significantly short of what I would term a good design. Nature is cruel and heartless. 99.99999% of all single creatures on Earth die before they are able to breed. A kind god? I hardly think so.
It doesn't matter what you "think". If you are such an authority on the design of life. Please relicate the origin of life. I bet you don't even understand the point I'm making, due to your inability to grant my request.

Of the various versions of the Ten Commandments I like to use the version that was supposedly carved in stone by God. That is the Exodus 34: 10-28 version. The modern interpretation of the 10th Commandment is a ban on cheeseburgers.
Why do you think GOD gave us the 10 Commandments? I bet you get it wrong!

You accept everything in the Bible as true based on some ambiguous subjective standard, while the rules of logic and reason we hold ourselves to do not recognize that as a valid means of determining which claims should be accepted and which shouldn't. We don't recognize the source of a claim as sufficient evidence for accepting claims that defy the known laws of physics and genetics because the rules of logic and reason prohibit that, but you do.
No matter how many times you claim otherwise, you are using a wholly different and generally useless set of rules regarding logic and reason than we are. Disagree? Then you must give up your "Bible is a demonstrated reliable source" nonsense. Because you thinking you're right about your religion is more important to you than reality is, you will not do this. Surprise me.
Do you think the notion of a demonstrated reliable source is nonsense?

At the start God said " and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.(@sshole)"
I guess after all of that talking he was tired and decided to have Moses do it.
At any rate, I don't care. The Tenth Commandment is still a ban on cheeseburgers.
That is a pretty potent sin. So bad it had to be one of the actual ten carved in stone. Not the first ten of hundreds that god spoke to the nation of Israel.
Did you notice that two individuals are named in vs. 27, to either of which the pronoun he in vs. 28 could refer? You may also want to check Deut. 4:13 for clarification.
