Above is what a supported view looks like.
Some of you evos are real morons and do not even know the difference between a creo site and your own research.
Let's just say that there are scientific publications and there are popular science sites that are more about entertainment than peer review.

I would ignore it, like I ignore other myths, but there are certain idiots that claim it is real. I point out the obvious and am waiting for their evidence. This is one case where lack of evidence of an event is evidence that the event never took place.
Then ignore it instead of prattling on and on like this.

You can call it whatever you want, it doesn't change the fact that it's quote mining and misrepresenting the evidence in a pitiful attempt to discredit the very people you are using as evidence.
Then if this is your opinion you should be able to demonstrte for all where and what I actually misrepresented.

These researchers still accept TOE. The point I am making is that it is all woffle and not empirical evidence at all.

If all this woffle was empirical evidence it would not change like the wind and refute itself on a regular basis.

Evolutionary research is one of the few fields of work where one can be consistently worng and not get fired.

Data is provided, but just how valid is it? Further to that any data can be interpreted based on a predefined assumption.

TOE is not a science. It is a faith and you have faith in these boofheads that change their mind all the time.

You have many words but you cannot articulate an appropriate refute backed by research. You can quack and that appears to be about it.

Suck eggs. You are one of the boofheads have no clue about what is or isn't a creationist site.

"let's just say"..What now are you still unclear what is or isn't a creationist site even though you can open the links and look for yourself. Don't you know how to open links either?

Your ignorance supports the fact that you have no idea about recent advances in evolutionary theory. It is that simple. It is like I am trying to have a debate with a 12 year old.

You are woffling with vaguary. What do you mean?
I understand the underlying assumptions of algorithmic magic for both sides of the debate. How about you?
The way evos refute creos is by providing research presented as empirical when it is not empirical evidence at all.
All the evo woffle around junk dna is just one example of it.
Just how valid would you suggest all the algorithmic magic presented as empirical evidence for 98% junk dna was?
That is the platform from which you are sprooking off your mouth from. It is a baseless and mindless stream of woffle with absolutely no foundation at all.
Here is somethinjg else you may be interested in on beneficial mutations accumulating to produce overwhelmingly negative effects re epitasis.

http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/11...
Feel free to refute the substance of these articles with more than your opinion.
These articles that are published and peer reviewed do not support an organisms unlimited ability to adapt. Rather they imply huge cost and restrictions around variation on the back of accumulating beneficial mutations, as if evos actually know what a beneficial mutation is in the first place.
Now let's see what baseless and unsupported reply I get back, if any. Evos tend to scurry away when the going gets tough or offer some opinuionate woffle based on "I beleive because researchers that are continually wrong said so". eg my assertions re junk dna. That is about the best you lot appear to be able to provide here.
1. What the heck is "woffle"?
2. Why do you talk about algorithms without a specific context. THAT sounds like magic!
3. In truth, algorithmic formulas are not empirical evidence at all. They may help identify significant patterns in evidence but they are subject to peer review as much as the data is.
4. From what little I've read, junk DNA is a sloppy buzzword that never needed to be invented. In the long run, you can only make a minor prediction concerning the rate of mutation and and how much that change will make portions of the genetic code obsolete. It really has no bearing on the process of Evolution and you'll probably end up with some arbitrary judgments on the value of mutations anyway. It's just sloppy.

Yet .... creationists base everything on the unobserved.
Irony meter busted again.
Creationists base their theories on holy books. Those are man made objects, not natural world observations.

First you get evidence, then you base theories on what you find. Until I see a godlike individual going around, defying all physics, I'm not going to invent such a thing.

Why would humans want to create another Earth, there are probably an infinite number of Earths out there.

The universe formed, there were certain "laws" in the universe. The Earth formed as a result of these laws. Now we're on it. There, explained at a level even you can comprehend.
