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 ...

That is also how evolution produces complexity.
I don't disagree with that theory.

We have a fused chromosome, it's as simple as that.
Is that significant relative to consideration of interbreeding among modern humans, Neanderthals and chimps?

While numerous assertions have been made, no actual data confirming the flood could not have occurred has been provided. Someone, albeit a scientist, declaring that a civilization existed without interruption thru the timeframe of the flood is not data. It is an assertion. Declaring that the assertion is based on data is not data. It is an assertion.
Bullcrap. You *have* been provided the data. Many times. You've been given the references to reputable scientists and their publications. So stop with the lying. You've lost this one so how about you move on to something else. This has gotten boring.

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.
Right, and until we learn how to design those less complex sub-units, we can't design the more complex item. Whoops, I guess that totally IS learning.

And do you also not disagree about there being no boundary to the amount of complexity, derived from less complex sub-units, that can arise via evolutionary processes?

And, nobody has thus far proven that it's impossible for leprechauns to be at the center of the sun. BOOYAH!

They didn't ORIGINATE the root language; they merely ALTERED the language, just as the French, Italians, and Spanish ALTERED Latin, and just like you've altered it to make adjectives and nouns the same thing. Fortunately, the lingua franca today is not Idemish.

<quoted text> 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.
I never said anything about perfection, did I? Hell, Dogen fucks up "manner" vs. "manor" all the time. Bugs me to no end, but you don't see me demanding perfection of him, do you? Others mix up "to" vs. "too." Do you see me jumping up and down about that? The difference is that when I pointed Dogen's error out to him, he acknowledged his error. It hasn't gotten any better, but at least he acknowledges that his spelling is chronically and pathologically flawed. You, however, fuck things up and when the error is pointed out to you, you don't acknowledge your error. What you say is that it doesn't matter if it's wrong or not because you're right and that's that. Well, that's stupid. People who do insist on being wrong even when they're shown what's right, and deny the error of their ways...what would you call that?

Stupid. Right.

And, that's what you do, so that's what you are. If you want people to stop treating you like you're stupid, stop justifying it with continuous stupidity. Improve yourself, or, at the very least, acknowledge the error. Do you acknowledge the error? Is it wrong to equate the definition of the adjective form of "own" with the verb form of "own?"

Be careful...honesty will force you to admit you've been dishonest this whole time.

Why don't you argue about the semantics of your own language.

Your response to the question was that humans and Neanderthals have the same number of chromosomes but they and chimps do not. It's as simple as that, and it appears that is not evidence they didn't interbreed.
This has nothing to do with character assassination. It's simply about what is correct and what is not, and making progress in correct understanding.

Again, you do not seem to understand evidence.

Different numbers of chromosomes make it MUCH less likely that they could interbreed. It is not an absolute stopper.

Just like in the past you just want to get in that something is possible, and want to ignore the odds of it happening. That is unscientific and dishonest.

False dichotomy.

Their is also deism and agnosticism to name only two additional possibilities.
