You're just demanding that people prove your god doesn't exist. We've already said that science doesn't waste time on proving negatives. You're not introducing anything new to the debate other than maybe putting a biker-chick spin on creationism! I'll admit, that's pretty new!
Again you prove evos here are nothing more than wofflers. I am not asking you to prove the negatives you goose. I am asking for some evidence for evolution because so far you lot have bombed out at every attempt. It is not looking good for you evos.

Regardless of your many words, in the end you are gobsmacked and unable to mount an appropriate reply that identified the specific concern, not even one can you identify, and just post for the sake of trying to justify your existence.

You see the post above, with links,? You should try supporting that big attitude of yours one day and learn how to conduct a debate.

You obviously have no idea why your researchers suggest Afarensis is in the human line, nor why some say she isn't. All you can do is prattle on.

You probably think she was found in tact and complete with feet. Oh I take that back. It is more likely that you are not thinking anything past I know because some researchers that are consistently wrong said so.

Would you evos like to go back to square one with the Proffessors initial post?
Let's do junk dna again, where evos will woffle on blindly about the 98% of junk non coding dna that surely proves evolution is true.
Oh wait!!!! Oh that's right, some evo researchers are now suggesting that is nore than likely that 100% of the genome is functional.
The same goes for vestigial organs, single celled LUCA the queen of evolutionary support killed by HGT, wrist bones that proved mankind had a knucklewalking ancestry and therefore must have evolved from some bent over ape, the same fossils demonstrating ancestry to a knucklewalker and now a biped, bipedalism being soley a human trait gone, accumulating beneficial mutations accruing without disasterous cost - gone, etc etc etc, all tossed aside generally on the back of one single new finding.
There really is no debate. It is quite obvious to me that evolutionary reseachers have no idea what they are talking about.
There are many well credentialed creationists some of which have left TOE behind on the back of what they have discerned from the data available.
http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/CMI_list_of_scie...
Regardless of what evos have to say about creos, evolutionary history suggests that one would have great difficulty in presenting worse and less credible assertions and hypothesis than what evolutionists have to present. This is my conclusion to the evolution/creation debate.
No one has proven anything beyond doubt and many scenarios are possible if one is talking about a power mankind knows nothing about.
You lot can chase your tails adnauseum forever, and still you will never recover from your history of evolutionary supports that now reside in the huge rubbish bin of evolutionary delusions past!
Here is a prime example of using what you don't understand. Whether all, some or none of the so-called "junk DNA" has a function does not refute evolution in the least. It is no different from arguing which Wright brother played a larger role in the first flight. They still flew the plane.

You are erroneously taking an area of discovery out of context, erroneously declaring any controversy as falsifying evolution and then publishing this nonsense on here. It is a strawman argument and a piss poor one at that.

Science did not discover the Okapi until 1901. Was this failure to discover this new animal until that date evidence that science was a failure? No. Argument and controversy over new areas research are part and parcel of good science.

The idea that someone challenges the discoveries of science is necessary and desireable. I just wish it was done by more knowledgeable and intellegent people.

Lucy, is challenged as a human ancestor and quite a few researchers suggest Lucy and all her purported humanity actually has no humanity in her and is an ancestor or relative of the chimp.
Bipedalism is no longer solely a human trait.
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/319/5870/16...
Hawkins supports research that suggests Lucy is a gorilla ancestor.
You can go into most of the fossils in the link and see exactly what they did find, if it was pieced together from an assumption (eg the mess in rudolfensis), remembering that very few fossils provide credible and reliable data. You can see how evo researchers have made up entire life stories on the basis of a single bone. Of course Wiki is not comprehensive but is a good place to start for a beginner.
There are no chimp fossils to demonstrate chimp ancestry meaning one entire half of the story is missing. Let me say that if a creationist tried to pass off a similar scenario to evos we would be laughed off the forum. However that is the calibre of evidence evos suggest is good enough for them.
What makes you think little tiny Lucy with her little brain and curved fingers, found without feet, was any more bipedal than a chimp or orang is today?
Dirt simple, by the design of the pelvis. Lucy's pelvis clearly suggested bipedalism. You could also use the position of the foramen magnum if it is available.

These are still non furry, obligate bipeds with the ability to make meaning of the world, which is the criterion for that species general representation (without disability) to be included in the human race.

So far, and I repeat this because it can't be repeated often enough, you have shown nothing but biased nonsense and have provided nothing to refute evolution. You are batting 1000. You have that going for you.

I am not and have never claimed to be an expert on Human origins, but any reasonable person can see that "Lucy" is only one piece of a puzzle. If it turns out that it is not part of our fossil line, that will not refute human evolution from a common ancestor to the other great apes. There is DNA evidence, homology, ERV evidence, chromosomal evidence and more as I understand it that continue to support that. Your argument is again, a strawman. You are taking one single controversial piece of evidence and beating it pieces as much as your limited ability allows and ignoring the real story.

No surprises here. Just your usual anti-science clown.

Oh, that's the list the DI gathered, you know none of those are biologists, their opinions on evolution are about as valid as a monkey's opinion on what purse looks best with an outfit. Not to mention a lot of those scientists wanted to be removed from the list, and the few remaining are not published.
When are you lot going to learn what it is to debate.

So you are now saying that every single example is a fraudulent misrepresention and there are no well credentialled researchers that are creationists or are you just nit picking a few.

Here is another list for you to demonstrate what an empty vessel you actually are when it comes to this topic.

http://www.creationinfo.com/list.htm

I took the time to find examples to support my assertion and you just sit there on your proverbial behind and woffle on. Some of you are so incredibly physically and intelectually lazy. Or is it that you have zilch research skills but come to debating forums just to waste everyones time. That is why you don't learn and have the memory retention of a piece of cheese.

I have already dealt with an article that tries to refute scientists flocking to creationism in droves. Would you like to have the same discussion again? I even provided the refute for you evos.

So you have nothing to say about the guts of the topic at hand, supporting TOE via fossil evidence, but you will have some meaningless remark to add to an aside as if not one credible researcher could be a creo. Is that your point? Or are you just wasting time nit picking for the sake of it?

Don't expect a reply to this level of pointless and unsupported rhetoric and don't think that means anymore than I can't be bothered spamming the thread with off topic nonsense. There are plenty here that want to do that!

But you have not emonstrated how I build strawmen and you most certainly have not provided any sort of suport at all.

Most of my links are from evo sites and much is the actual peer reviewed research. Some of you evos have no idea what a creo site or evo site is suggesting that articles from Nature are creationsist. Pathetic and insane.

You keep saying I have limited ability, yet I am the only one here that is able to post direct support for my assertions

You say I misrepresent but have never provided any example and supported refute to any thing I have ever said.

Again I say to you that you are a looser that has no research skills, likely has no idea how to source anything, thinks his opinion is the end of the matter, and has delusions of being a big evotard hero here.

You are continually proving what an idiot you really are!

If you disagree articulate an appropriate response at your concern or shut the heck up!

I think that the argument is simply invalid. It seems that some ape ancestors were more bipedal then we previously thought. We assumed that the one current species with the unique quality of bipedalism would be less representative of older common ancestors. That's common sense but apparently not what some discoveries suggest.

It certainly doesn't mean that we have to burn all of the evolutionary scientists at the stake and go crying to god for forgiveness.

No, the question is when are you going to learn? Also, when are you going to learn how to type?

Still no published biologists, and the list is highly suspect. Can you be honest at all?

In all honesty, I tend to be skeptical of new announcements in the science community because I expect a bit of self-promotion. When I post, I usually fact-check at Wikipedia where they state that Lucy has leg bones and a partial pelvis which led scientists to their conclusions.

Go ahead and read!

Lucy isn't a cold fusion dud. She's a real and significant discovery.

If my grandparents were married in 1928, lived, had children who in turn married and had children of there own, arguing when the marriage occured would not change the fact that they were married and so forth.

Arguing that finding certain fossil evidence at an unexpected time is just the same thing. It may change the timeline, alter where some key events may have taken place but it doesn't destroy the concept of evolution.

For instance, if while looking through family papers I discover a picture of my grandparents wedding dated 1923, that doesn't mean they weren't married. It means that based on the evidence other family members had there is a discrepency in the date the marriage took place. It could be the photo was mislabelled or it is correct. There would be much controversy amongst the family as to which is correct, but none would say that there was no marriage as a result of the new evidence.

It is a simple concept I know, but one that seems to be abused on here as if the abuser was in possession of Thor's hammer. With such, these people gleefully believe they are destroying the foundations of evolution. This is further based on the misconception that science is based on popularity rather than on facts. Evolution is not an accepted theory because it is popular. It is an accepted theory because of the facts.

I invite the open minded, critical thinking, person to watch how radical creationists abuse their ignorance on here daily. Watch them rant on in some illogical manner and then declare themselves the winner of whatever it is they think they won. The names of the characters may change, but the stupidity, ignorance and hubris remain the same.

I need to read more on human evolution as this has been an area for which I have shown little interest until the last few years. I can only speak generally about it. I agree, changes in conclusions about a single fossil or lineage, won't bring the theory down, no matter how much some think it will.

Regardless of where your links come from is irrelevant to how you misuse them. As to your strawman arguments, it is selfevident to anyone reading your posts. You are using one now. Your statement about some evos makes no sense. It is unintelligible. Are you making a confession with regards to pathetic and insane? Posting links does not show ability. Misusing what those links mean to support your point show dishonesty at best and ignorance at the least. The links of yours that I have seen do not support what you assert. To say so is an outright lie.

Now you make the personal attacks that I was expecting to come sooner or later. I have articulated an appropriate response many times over the last few months. You stand there with you mouth agape and provide nothing substantive in return but more of the same. You claim evolution is wrong because of some fossilized bird-like footprints, but even if they prove to be those of birds, it would not refute evolution. It would just change the picture of evolution. The fact that you feel this ability of science is wrong is just further evidence that you don't understand science or evolution.

Now, you can respond back with personal attacks, lies, strawman arguments and misused evidence and declare yourself the winner. At least in that you are consistent. As evidence, I direct you to all of your many posts.
