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 not the issue.
We have a whole series of fossil humans that show them getting more
apelike the further we go back. Now hundreds of specimens. As I said,
the child is not exactly like the parent. That means over long periods,
significant change can occur.
This is projections subject to series of guesses and manipulations. I don't see anything relevant here.

No arguments, because Jesus and most of the apostles were all Jews( Israelites).

That is probably the most childish, and silly reply I have ever seen. Sure would have been more convincing if you had addressed at least one of these with some thought, but alas, I guess that is way to much to expect. I'm not surprised though because I never have expected to much out of you evolutionists to begin with. I mean, after all, you are evolutionists!!
Funny how you can have every point explained to you with evidence and references, repeatedly over a number of years, then come back here after disappearing for a month or two and make the same claoms all over again.

Its merely a form of lying.

Yes and I am sure its a safe bet that you have never actually studied the fossil evidence.

because he failed to meet the criteria of the prophesies. His followers fixed that failure over the next century with increaingly tall stories easily believed by the mass of uneducated slaves who formed the backbone of the following.jesus the rabbi was converted onto jesus the god by backfilling.

I accept that God is possible. But not Genesis, that is a creation myth like any other.

All assertion. Where is your evidence? Oh I now you like insertions for you like asserting it up my butttt and I like inserting in your mouth. But still you lack evidence on your babble you claim to be all wrong.
Hypocrisy much? Marky posts a list of assertions and you have no problem with them. But the reply? Now that's another matter.

Evolution is a crock of crap. It all started with a big bang where nothing exsisted. From there earth became along with the moon. And somehow the sun just fell into place. Then from a muddy lifeless soup it came to life. It somehow just started to replicate itself and reproduce. Then that one form not only replicated itself, it also changed into different and new species as it replicated (how does just one thing make new species). The sun just happened out of nothing to be what we need to survive. The weather just happened out of nothing to be what we need to survive. The air mixture we breathe just happened out of nothing to be what we need to survive. This one living thing that came from nonliving just happened to not only replicate itself but to also change itself into many different forms of life including marine animlas, land animals, air animals, and plants along with many many species of bacteria and fungi (roughly 100 million different species all came from one) and all that just happened to be what we need to survive, it also went from nonliving microscopic to massive living species (dinosaur, mammoth ect ect). Many times in history most if not all went extinct from ice ages or meteor strikes that brought massive fire and ash that blocked out the sun for months but somehow it just kept right on going as if nothing happened. Not to mention the cockroach is one of the earliest species to become of all that and is still just that, a cockroach. Uhm yep that is way more believable than a higher power of God that did it. LMFAO
Thank you ever so much for clarifying exactly how uneducated you are. It will be a big help in the future.

Answer how it all happened to be just right or STFU. Plain and simple. Running away or waking around it won't cut it. Your science either has the answers or is doesn't. Which is it? And if they have any answers be sure and post the link with your evidence!
WTF? Why do you guys keep asking the same silly questions? If you are unfamiliar with current scientific theories on any of these matters then you are in no position whatsoever to even ask about them. No one is going to sit here and painstakingly type out all of the scientific discoveries for the last thousand years.

So how about *you* either STFU and go read a science book or start asking reasonable questions. No one is dodging you or running away. Ask a decent question and you'll get a decent answer.

How did the big bang make the perfect sun for us? How did the big bang make the perfect weather for us? How did the big bang make the perfect air for us? How did "one thing" come from no life to life and not only learn to replicate but to also learned change in to many species? How did one thing not only learn to become different species, how did it learn to become different sexes and reproduce? Shall I go on or is that enough for you?
These are serious questions. Where did it all come from and how did it all happen that it came out to be just right for us? It is not my fault you can't answer serious questions.
Your lack of education is no one's fault but you own. How did the big bang make perfect weather? What are you, five?

You never demonstrated that the order of creation in Genesis matches the fossil record. We demonstrated discrepancies between the stories and the evidence. You simply said that we're either misinterpreting the evidence or we have yet to find the evidence that confirms the Bible stories and resolves the contradiction of the evidence and the stories.
You have only demonstrated discrepancies between the evidence and an unnecessarily restricted allowance for the meaning of the Bible passages. If you need a refresher just choose a specific passage and what you think is the conflicting evidence, and I'll explain the error in reasoning, again.

Wrong. An omniscient and omnipotent God could easily make any creature at any time he so chose. There is no reason God couldn't have chosen to have rabbits exist in the pre-Cambrian. Unless, that is, there's something that would restrict how/when God would create organisms. What restrictions would you impose on your God?
You confuse what is possible with what is believable. Just because someone could do something, that doesn't mean he would do it. A pre-cambrian rabbit is not a believable design action. It's out of order (1 Corintians 14:33).

Hey, you are the one who claims the Bible is a "demonstrated reliable source." Now you demand a necessary allowance? Is that your new catch-all phrase for your usual dodges, straw man arguments, deflections, omissions, diversions, misinterpretations, mis-translations, mis-truths, fallacies, and completely ignoring relevant questions and evidence?
