Cybele, the problem is that you are a denier. You deny scientific evidence when it is presented to you. And only a liar would deny scientific evidence.
Do you know what scientific evidence is?
NO I don't deny it. It is just lacking in scientific evidence, that's all.

Find anything with any more scientific evidence supporting it.

At least my lesson of scientific evidence has gotten through.

I am not a biologist so I cannot argue the merits of all of their evidence for evolution. It is at least as massive as geologies. We have very good fossil lineages for quite a few species. Included are whales, horses, giraffes, elephants, many lines of dinosaurs, an almost unbelievable amount of sea life.

Since you seem to have trouble believing the theory of evolution why don't you tell us what you believe and we will tell you why it is wrong. This should be a give and take. We have been doing all of the giving, you have provided nothing except for negation.

Time to turn things around a bit.

Ah, you want to know what I believe so you can debunk it right? I am not claiming anything to be "true" but like most physicists do I wonder if there is intelligent life out there or we wouldn't be spending billions of dollars building SETI.

Intelligent life on other planets really has nothing to do with evolution on the Earth. Why even bring it up here?

I would argue science and religion are very close.
Science can recognize when it makes a mistake and changes.
Religion does the same this is proven by we no longer go on crusades to Jerusalem. We no longer own slaves. No more purification through pain (fire torture) we don't hunt witches. I think you get the point. Most modern Christians find these acts as they were done to be wicked.
So science and religion are growing and always changing.
How are they close? They serve two different purposes. Are you claiming that religious dogma can accurately explain the universe?

And religion has changed because it was forced to change. The world was/is moving on, and religion has to adapt. People stopped putting up with their BS, so they changed. People stopped being OK with witch burnings. People are getting fed up with religion trying to outlaw homosexual marriage and birth control. Some churches have already given up fighting a losing battle against societal progress. The rest will follow.

Dude, you can go on and on about my arguments. Yet so far, you haven't provided evidence!
If you accept the theory of evolution, then you would have to accept the M theory or string theory, blackholes, parallel universe or multiverse, etc.

If you've taken all sciences then you would know that not all theories are legit or have eventually been superseded or replaced.
You're right. The fact that the geocentric model was superseded means that the TOE will go down in flames too.

Freakshow, there is no evidence in the fossil record for humans. You take the easy way out of accountability, confirming that we are accountable to a higher source. You are obviously a lazy freakstool of a human, excusing yourself from every bad mistake you have made.

Logical fallacy.

That one's called the "Argumentum ad Ignorantem" fallacy - in this case, "I dunno. God musta diddit."
