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

Full story: Asheville Citizen-Times

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 ...

"Chimps and the other great apes have 48 chromosomes.
Neanderthals had 46 chromosomes, the same number as homo sapiens."
There is no deception, falsification or "dataless assertion." There is simply a statement. If you read something more into it than that homo neanderthalensis and homo sapiens were genetically closer than pan troglodytes and homo sapiens, the problem is in your mind.
Why didn't you include the question to which you were responding?

“See how you are?”

"What is the evidence showing that we have interbred with Neanderthals but not with chimps?"

I'm no geneticist, but it is evident that we had more in common with homo neanderthal than with pan troglodyte.
A LOT MORE.
I did not propose that humans and neanderthals did or did not interbreed, nor did I propose that neanderthals/chimps or humans/chimps interbred. I suggested that fertile offspring across species would be unlikely.
Now knock off the vain attempt at character assassination and go conduct cross species fertilization with yourself.

Where is the data in Chrome's following post?
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/TFA...
You are correct about data precedence. Now all you have to do is provide Datum B ruling out the flood.
Regarding your final point, you are correct. Chrome was wrong, thinking equal numbers of chromosomes were required.
The demand for data is admirable, and Datum B has been provided, repeatedly. But data is useless unless paired with the capacity to follow its logical implications, which you appear to lack.

Learning is only one reason. Conplex things tend to be composed of less complex subunits each of which may be composed of less complex subunits. Each of the subunits is a design in itself, preceding the more complex, no matter how omniscient the designer.
That is also how evolution produces complexity.

Please.
Learning only stops when one is dead. In this case, English belongs to England, no one can change that, not you. I have my reasons for saying that, the truth!

Yes, it actually does change that fact, because the adjective form of
the word provides the definition you keep referring to, but you're using
the adjective definition for the verb form of the word. You might as
well say that "right" as in the direction is what is meant when someone
is going to right a ship in the water. Same spelling, different parts of
speech with different definitions. Why, other than the fact that you
built an argument around this error, would you treat an adjective and a
verb as though they're the same thing?
Answer this question, if the English did not originate the language, no one would have had the opportunity of the language, not even you or i. So, since it was first spoken there(England) as a language, it therefore belongs to the English. That is my stand!

Why don't you start your own topix thread about this insufferably boring non-issue, instead of polluting the evolution forum with your nonsense?

I didn't say "only things that exist can be owned by other things." I
said that "only things that exist can own other things." Did you ever
consider the notion that you could have misunderstood the English
language as spoken by someone fluent in it, and that your half-assed
comprehension, as useful as it may be for day-to-day interactions
finding restaurants or the library, might not be so useful for
discussions wherein the subtleties of the language are brought to bear
in the fleshing out of ideas? No...of course not! You know all the
English anybody would ever need to know!
I never claimed perfection in anything. I am not English, but i stand for the truth, like you, i had access to the language, because of the English.

Origination does not equal ownership. Argument over. This is not an
English language fan club thread, its an evolution thread.
Its obvious to everyone that having been thoroughly obliterated when you
tried to attack evolution with your childish and inept arguments, you
retreated to your happy place of arguing about one of the most silly and
pointless possible subjects for a whole bloody year!
I have explained my reasons for that, that most of you failed to see. If your mind towards that is hard, mine is not, I always stand for the truth. Evolution to date, is a mess. You and i are able to speak the English language, because of the English people, who originally came from England.

"Originated in" is synonymous with "belongs to" or "owned by"?
The nations or countries that takes English as first or official language were influenced by? were the speaking English before the influence? these and many other reasons proves my point, English despite its transitions, still belongs to England.

My ancestors were English, yet I don't belong to England - but let's not
be too hasty about Chucky's logic. The Bible originated as the Torah,
so it belongs to the Semitic tribes and NOT the Christians. Jesus was
Jewish and he spoke Aramaic, so he cannot belong to gentiles.
A simple answer, politically you are an American, but culturally, you are English, except you were not born from those parents.

Charles, here is a fact: blue light has a shorter wavelength than rad light.

Here is an opinion: Blue is nicer than red.

See the difference?

You will never convince anyone of your opinion about the English language. Nobody disagrees with the FACT that English originated in England. And since you have failed to define "ownership" in any way different from "originated", you are basically just arguing with yourself. Nobody else even cares.

Evolution, to date, is a theory based on facts and explaining facts. Your opinion, yet again that "its a mess", is meaningless.

What in particular about evolution is a mess, according to you? The fact that it conflicts with Genesis? Perhaps its Genesis that is a mess.

Then you are wrong with your findings. Not every one here agreed to that, instead they said it originated from Germany. I am not interested in convincing any one, but the truth is the truth and i stand for that. Evolution is not a fact. Period!

Genesis is not a mess unlike your evolution trash. Nothing can actually evolve on their own, they must pass through creation process first. One evidence of Genesis.
