Tell that to the evolutionist who wrote the article “We were once worms”
Then provide a proper link to the article. It is your claim you have to defend it. No link, you lose.

Thanks for at least reading the questions I posted.
I didn't write them but I considered them worthy of the topic in spite of the narrow mindedness of the atheists who didn't give them a second thought nor did they try to rebut in any logical sense.
Instead they attacked the scientists who wrote these questions.
At least you didn't add the word "tard" at the end of a description of someone else.
Looks like some of them haven't evolved all that much.:)
Those questions were not written by scientists. They were written by creationists. You need to learn how to tell the difference.

You keep projecting your faults upon others. No one has tried to limit how you post here. I have pointed out how your posting is rude here. So again, that does make you a putz.
Your posts were nonsense that has been debunked many times before and your unwillingness to debate them showed that you were merely doing a Gish Gallup. It only impresses the uninformed. Even most creationists know that what you were doing is very bad form.
And I gave more to debunk them than you put into them. I had logic on my side. At best you had improper quotes on yours. In other words I ruined your attempt to spam the board.
I never project on others.

You didn't like the questions so you made the threat that I could be banned for what you described as "spamming"
every one of those questions were on topic and if you were even one speck intellectually honest, you'd just admit that you didn't like the content of the posts.
I could go on to describe how hapless and impotent you must have felt when confronted with your religion of evolution but I don't want to embarrass you.

How convenient.
Got any proof?
Thought not.
Actually there is proof of this. This is one of the criteria that biologists have tested as well as observed in nature. Another reason evolution is considered a fact but the theory explains these details.

And please don't lie. With all you wrote I rebutted all of your nonsensical questions. If you were reasonable and asked them properly they would have been thoroughly debunked... again.

There is a reason that creation is rejected by scientists and it has nothing to do with religion. Most of the believers of the theory of evolution are Christians and not atheists. Why do you assume that someone who believes the theory of evolution is an atheist?

Another question I have is about the deity's awareness of his own future actions. In the Old Testament the deity sometimes acts and then later regrets the decision. For example, The Flood. Doesn't he express to Noah afterword that he is sorry for his action and in the future will not create another such cataclysm in response to 'waywardness'? That would indicate a lack of foresight as well as an ability to act irrationally (even if having such foresight), both of which seem at odds with being a 'perfect' entity. Correct?

Again you lose. There is no "proof" in science, that is a mathematical term. You should have asked if we had evidence, and we do have evidence that supports our beliefs. You do not have any evidence that supports any of yours. In fact you know your beliefs are so lame that you are afraid to own up to them. That makes you a rather pathetic fool.
Post the mathematical term.
NOW!

I made no threat. I pointed out what you were doing is wrong and that you could be banned for it. I did not say I was going to report you or threaten you in any way. I pointed out that others would be justified in reporting you. As I said, logic is not your strong point.

Your questions give us no problem, it is the invalid way that you posted them that gets people angry.

And again evolution is not a religion, you need to learn what a religion is. And last but not least you could not make anyone feel hapless and impotent, except for your poor wife, if you have one.

If they were questions my answers were adequate. If they were claims then we know that you were lying.

The evidence to my argument is simple.
Your lack of evidence.
My argument is that Man did not evolve from apes.
Show me evidence which proves my argument wrong.

Here are a couple of articles that back up my claim;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematical_pro...

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-scien...

From the second article;
Proofs exist only in mathematics and logic, not in science.
By the way, that is the proper way to do a quote. I quoted directly from the article and included a link to the article.

That is a poor dictionary definition. Since we are in a debate about science we need to use a scientific definition. By the way, you still lose since that was an incorrect quote.

No, we have plenty of evidence. You are not in a position to decide what is and what is not evidence. Nor are you willing to logically discuss the matter. According to the scientific world we have more than enough evidence to show that evolution is a fact.

Of course you don't understand.
Because I used your own terminology in the form of a question.
You said its a "Mathematical term"
Post the Mathematical term of which you speak.
You can call it evidence, which is still defined as proof.
You have no proof of the existence of evolution.
Only the belief.
Evolution is a religion.

So we have at least established that there is no logic in the religion of evolution.
Thanks for clearing that up.

Again you have it wrong and backwards. I am the only one who has given legitimate answers. All you have posted is nonsense. The "us" is the people who know and understand the theory of evolution that post here. It is much too late for most of them and it is getting too late for me. That means you can post as much nonsense as you like. Of course all of it will be debunked tomorrow.

And no, evolution is not a religion. Religions are faith based. Evolution is based upon evidence, logic and science, the opposite of religion.

By the way, if you are a Christian you have been breaking the 9th Commandment for some time now. You better watch yourself. And that is not a threat from me.
