Of course I can produce the massive evidence. The problem is that you don't even know what constitutes scientific evidence.

An educated creationist will at least admit that there is massive evidence that supports evolution. They stubbornly disagree with the interpretation of that evidence and can offer none that support their side. So what do you call someone who has no evidence to support their beliefs, and knows that the other side has all of the evidence?

You call that person a creationist.

What do you call someone who denies that evolution has massive evidence. What else can you call someone who is even dumber than a creationist, you call that person a creatard.

They are too scared to present any of this massive amount of gobble because some are still recovering from having their junk dna carpet pulled from underneath their feet.

It is the sound of gobsmacked silence. Creos will be lucky to engage any of the evo community in a scientific debate. For a start I am not sure any of them knows what a science really should look like. eg the predictability of a crystal ball is not a good start.

Well if there is so much of evidence to suport TOE how come you lot can never come up with any of it? My point here is also made.
I can demonstrate the folley behind any you present. IOW you have mountains of hand waving to present just like your evidence in junk dna was.
So you are going for 'they said so'. This is a forum pal. Why bother coming on here if you think a sweeping statement like that cuts to the chase of any debate. You would be laughed off a serious debate forum on one on one.
The problem with you is that is the best you have got, vaguary.
I implore you to present some of this so call mountain of evidence. So far you lot have bombed out on many supposed supports for TOE.
To list all the evidence would take much longer than the space we are allotted here. Would you like evidence from comparative physiology, evidence from paleontology, evidence from anatomy, evidence from geographical distribution, etc, etc, etc.

Take your pick.

Here's one specific piece of evidence - chromosome 2 in humans. All chromosomes have telomeres and centromeres ( one telomere on each end and one centromere in the middle). However, humans have one chromosome (2) that has 4 telomeres and 2 centromeres. In the middle, there are two telomeres connected end to end where the centromere would usually be. Each end has it's own telomere, and then on either side, in between both sets of telomeres, there is a centromere. Based on this strange configuration, it seems that we have a fused chromosome. We have 23 chromosomes. All members of homindae except us have 24. So, at some point after we diverged, 2 of our chromosomes fused, which is why we have one less than the rest of our family.

I recommend you do some light reading on the subject, both because it's hard to grasp what I just told you based on my short description, and because you are incredibly stupid.

Oh, I know lol. That's why I'm telling her to make her claims stand on their own rather than poke holes in scientific theory. This is something that I know she can't do.

Maz, I'm gonna put this in a separate post so that maybe you read it this time. You must make creationism stand on it's own as a theory. You can't find "proof" for it by poking holes on scientific theory. You have to find your own proof. Even if the TOE was found to be entirely wrong, which will not happen, that would not prove creationism. Do you understand that? The failure of a scientific theory is not the success of a religious theory.
Evolution is not the opposite of creationism anyway - creationists just set it up that way because it threatens their beliefs. If most of the rational world had their way, these debates would never happen because of how totally unrelated the two subjects are.
This is entirely your opinion and your take when you are still recovering from over 150 years of falsified knucklewalking ancestry and decades of sprooking to junk dna.

What sort of a bizarre comment is this 'evolution is not the opposite of creationism anyway'? That is only relevant if one is confused fence sitter like an IDer.

I have just woken you lot up to the folley of a decade of junk dna being shoved down creos throats and you have the hide to say creos set it up according to their beliefs. Shame on you, ignoramous!

Because you probably do not know what scientific evidence is. I have listed it before, creatards tend to ignore it.

So first, before I produce any evidence let's have a discussion on what constitutes scientific evidence.

Scientific evidence has to be evidence that everyone agrees with. And it must either support or oppose a theory or hypothesis. If it does not do either one of those it is merely noise.

So how do you support a theory or hypothesis. Mav is actually on to something when she claims that if she can show that every last bit of DNA has a function that it supports her creationist claims. Of course it would have to be every last bit including ERV's otherwise odds are that evolutionists could have an equal claim to having an interpretation of the DNA data that backs up their belief.

Theories and hypotheses make models of the real world that support their claims. For example if the theory of evolution is true the fossil record should never have a Cambrian bunny rabbit, or for that matter the 215 million year old whale that Maz claimed was found. The fossil record supports the evolutionary record. Therefore it is evidence for evolution. We have tons of fossils in museums and there are mountains of fossils in nature. All of which support the evolutionary model. Those same fossils do not support the creationist model so they cannot be used as evidence for creation. Creationists won't even make a model that describes how the fossils were laid down. They did in the past by trying to claim that Noah's flood laid them down but that is so thoroughly debunked that it is laughable to even try to use it these days.d

So there, a rather long post that describes scientific evidence. Shows how it is used. Gives an example of actual evidence that can be used by evolution and not by creation. Any questions?

The one thing I find most amusing is that creationist spend time and energy fighting in these forums. After taking Pascal's wager, it seems they have no further task than to wait for the end to come. Yet they propose the dead horse paradigm endlessly as a feverish attempt to win intellectual supremacy. Not one of them can follow pure science without dropping the magic plug and play deity.

You must just love being wrong.

Of course no one will post instantaneously in response to your nonsense. You were told time and time again why what you posted was nonsense and you persisted.

What I have trouble with is the hubris of these creatards. They think that they can debunk the work of over 150 years by reading an article that they don't understand.

Mav of course is wrong with her claims about the nature of non-coding DNA and evolution. Let's see how wrong she is about evidence.

I know. Years ago I owned a house on an alley by a church. They would park in alley and acually park onto my grass,my yard ,my property. I put up a fence so they couldnt. One day one of these good church people hit my fence and had the nerve to try and sue me. LOL typical vile religous freaks. Then this church a few years later wanted to expand. they wanted to buy my land. I said no. Within 6 months I had a court order forceing me to sell my land do to some BS building code crap. RELIGION FORCED GOVERNMENT TO FORCE ME OUT OF MY HOME.
This is just a lesson for you. God almighty is the owner of all things, including your property and land.

Dude. Are you trolling? I don't understand. Is the only thing you know, at all, about evolution is that it wrongly predicted non coding dna? Again, one more time, IT DOES NOT MATTER. It literally does not affect the overall theory. At all. How about you trust everyone who is telling you that it doesn't affect the theory, and take on something of actual substance? Offer your assessment of anything other than junk dna.

And no, evolution and creationism are not diametrically opposed. Why would they be? Even the catholic church has claimed that evolution is a tool of your god - because the evidence for it was just too great to deny anymore. Claiming that the TOE is opposed to creationism is like claiming that the theory of gravity is opposed to creationism - and all it shows is just how deeply skewed your thinking is by religion. You can't consider anything that conflicts with your belief that god poofed us into existence.

Not necessarily, in my opinion. I think that before we would infer the existence of a god, it would be more reasonable to assume that there is some mechanism for discarding useless portions of the genome that we don't fully understand. Seems more likely than a god. I don't know.
