I love it when you correct your so called "typos." Your revisions still don't make any sense. I don't even know why you do it.

He was a heretic. He saw the truth that was setting him free from the imaginary cure to an imaginary disease.

People laughed at the bibles suggestion that the moon was created after the earth. That was up until these bright ones found evidence that indeed the moon was created after the earth.
Nobody laughed at the suggestion. The moon was created after the earth and another planet collided

Then there was all the woffle about how can plants live without sunlight. Of course it has been found that plants do not need sunlight and any source of energy can support life, including the light and energy produced at the creation.
So are you claiming that plants do not need sunlight?

The bible spoke to a universal beginning before modern science. Genesis was the first to speak of what may be found in the fossil record beginning with earth, plants, animals then mankind. In fact the only two kinds that are out of order are birds and whales and the nested hierarchoes of these are a mess.
Wrong. You simply are uneducated. Bird evolution is very well understood. Whale evolution had a lineage falsified. We know a lot more today than 60 years ago.

Rubbish. I know the 'research' you speak of and it is hogwash.

Many biblical structures not accepted have been found. Parts of the NT have been found dated to the 1st century AD refuting a heck of a lot of the woffle the intelligencia and all their ramblings previously put forth.
So? Stephen King refers to the State of Maine a lot. Becuase Maine exists, you want to argue that his writings are factual?

Homology is not more than pick a box of triats that suit. For over 150 years the bones in human wrists 'proved' mankind evolved from a knuckle walker. This was refuted on the back of one single fossil find in Ardi.

The same goes for dna comparisons.
Some organism had to be closer to man than another. Terms like deletions of huge chunks of genomic material, insertions, recombinations, multiplications, gentic and morphological homoplasy, convergent evolution etc etc, are all terms that speak to the vast differences between human and chimp dna. More recently it has been found that the expression differs by a whopping 80%.
Oh really?

The farther species are from us on the evolutionary tree, the farther the differ in terms of DNA comparisons. Do you wish to argue that this is coincidence?

That's their (and your opinion). Luckily, we don't need their (nor your) opinion. We ignore it the same way we would ignore the opinions of a janitor, a crack whore, or a three year old child

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_language...
Lists languages with written samples 2000 years before Hebrew, some few are

Seminarian
Egyptian
Hittite
Greek
Old Chinese

These excluded the proto literate Kish tablet from more than 2500 years before Hebrew writing and the evidence of the symbolic writing that dates back to the Neolithic Age

See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_writi...

The Hebrew language did not begin to develop until early in the 1st millennium BC and the Moabite Stone is dated around 100 year later

Ahh the old “Think outside the box” ploy

You mean never mind facts, everyone should all accept what you say.

He's talking about datasets of larger genetic groups within the genome, which when measured that way leads to something like his figure of 80%. It's a different way of measurement and creationists dishonestly use that figure to claim that chimps aren't actually as closely related as we thought, but when goes for a straight base-for-base comparison it does match to around 98%. Either way it still means the most similar genome to humans is that of chimps,*and* it is consistent with nested hierarches found across comparative anatomy, fossil record, DNA *and* orthologous ERV's.

In other words, reality AIN'T what he wishes it to be. Now if only morphological hierarchies and DNA hierarchies didn't have to match...

I believe that Noah may have spoke Canaanite because his son Ham is the father of Canaan. Read GENESIS 9:18.

TOE is based on the philosophical assumption that all life arose without the hand of God. From here theist evolutionists throw in their slant.
Hence, it does not matter if we are 99% the same as a chimp or 99% different, it does not matter if all our dna is functional or 98% is junk. It does not matter if one single finding can over turn the current thinking of the day, because evolutionists come from the standpoint that evolution must be true and they will interpret any data from an evolutionary base.
Really? Because this is *you* saying evidence doesn't matter.

Exactly, yes, I've already agreed with you that evidence does not matter to you. A God(s) may or may not exist. Either way, unlike I can with evolution, you can't even demonstrate that such a thing exists, much less how it did whatever it is you think it did, which apparently you don't even know, or care, because you just said so.

But if there is a God, it used evolution.
