this is how science works. evidence and review.
Not so.

Manmade climate change and evolution are maintained as absolute, and anyone that challenges them in any university, anywhere in the Western world not given a chance to challenge either.

That is well attested and confirmed.

The experience of Galileo was not an isolated incident. It is a human problem, we fear change, and the scientific community is not immune from human nature.

Science is so broken that its still calling three theories, theories when they been proven (yes proven) to fail. And that's not including the evolution myth.

Really? You can't think of anymore MORE interesting about our vast universe and our amazing knowledge than ... evolution.
You just made the case for the lack of evolution with you own personal self.
Ummm. dude, you are mixing at least three different fields of science together.
fields that have very disparate and far flung ranges of study.

you really have absolutely no idea what you are toalking about. Please stop. it hurts to watch people make such fools of themselves.

( on the upside, me posting your comments on my daughters site might in fact help get increased funding for STEM studies in this country....)

try to learn the basics of the theory first, lest you continue to look so foolish.
Not at all.

Either the universe always existed, or it emerged from somewhere.

All scientific evidence points to an expansion of the universe with no chance of it coming back together. So that pretty much crushes the the static state theory, that's why it was rejected, and replaced with the Big Bang theory.

I simplify for the simple minds, such as yourself.

Rest assured, woody, I know more about science than you will ever know, in many different fields, and history as well. I have a vast storehouse of information. Do you?

if they could provide evidence that would suggest a rational study that shows contrary results, they surely would be funded.

See, you really do not understand how that field works, yet you feel free to wank on about ceaselessly.

I wasn't aware I was before a panel of learned men.

Sorry I state things in laymen's terms so that people like you might better understand the basics.

But you are just whining at this point. You know you have nothing. You've been whining about me coming along as challenging your world view since the beginning.

Not a single person has provided supporting evidence for evolution. Not one of you has explained how there are another mutations to make the theory work.

You just lean on more learned men and women than yourself, and point to their articles as the authority, and proclaim them to be right, without checking the evidence yourself.

That makes you a religious fanatic. How does that make you feel?

no, you just proved that you do not, in any way, no more about this than i do, or my grandson and he is not even in schoolyet.

fool.
No, they predicted they would CHANGE faster. Once again, your using the wrong word, not the evolutionary model. It does not support the model at all, just the fact that things CHANGE.

No one can argue that things don't change. Adopting to a new environment is evidence of change ... not evolution.

Oh look, it's cold.

Let me put on a jacket.

I've changed my form, and my outside appearance.

Evolution!

the fact that all dogs came from one species would be another good example. ion only 15,000 years or so...

Yeah, and here is more of the science that is not being performed by scientists who don't really believe in the Theory of Evolution that answers a question about the development of lungs.

BRAND NEW, AS OF TODAY (2/7/2013).

CT scans help answer question of how fish lungs evolved.

February 7th, 2013 in Biology / Evolution

http://phys.org/news/2013-02-ct-scans-fish-lu...

( Phys.org )—One of the great problems of evolution is to understand how the major features of organisms have changed over great swaths of time. How did limbs evolve from fins? How did bird feathers arise from scales?

The lung is a major organ of great functional importance for vertebrates (animals with backbones). Since the mid-19th century, most biologists have thought that in living fishes, gas bladders—internal bags of air to which fishes can add or eliminate oxygen to control buoyancy—are simply a modified version of an ancestral pair of lungs. Others think lungs and gas bladders are completely different organs.

New research at Cornell using computed tomography (CT) technology has gone a long way toward showing that lungs and gas bladders really are variations of the same organ.

Watch the QuickTime video of the scan of a Florida gar: down through the spine, out to the inside surface of the interlocking sheath of heavy scales that encases a gar, and then into the central chamber of the gar's swim bladder, traveling all the way to the front of the swim bladder, just behind the head.

By proving that several ray-finned fishes, namely sturgeons and paddlefishes, as well as bowfin, have pulmonary arteries like those that supply the lungs of vertebrates, the researchers show that the common ancestor of all these fishes must have originally had lungs supplied by a pulmonary artery.

The micro-CT enabled researchers to look at resolutions of 25 microns, about the width of a human hair. "This is biology as we've never been able to see it before," said Amy McCune, co-author of the study and professor and chair of ecology and evolutionary biology. "We're studying biological diversity from the inside out."

The paper's lead author, Sarah Longo '11, a graduate student at the University of California-Davis, began the research for her honors thesis with McCune. Mark Riccio, director of the Cornell Multiscale CT Facility in the Institute of Biotechnology, is also a co-author; the paper was published Feb. 5 in the online version of the Journal of Morphology.

"Using our state-of-the-art, high-resolution X-ray CT scanners, we noninvasively created 3-dimensional datasets that could be examined from multiple perspectives," explained Riccio. By studying the CT scans of blood vessels filled with X-ray opaque barium in lungfishes, bowfin and several other related fishes, the Cornell researchers showed that other fishes in the lineage that includes bowfin actually have tiny vestigial pulmonary arteries, which branch off from a parent vessel in the same way that pulmonary arteries branch in tetrapods and lungfishes. The arteries in gas bladder fish, therefore, are actually vestigial pulmonary arteries that have been co-opted for new functions. The researchers hypothesize that this evolutionary change occurred either by the loss of respiration or by dorsal shifts in the anatomical structures of these fishes.

Longo points out that scientists have known about the vestigial arteries for a long time, but because traditional dissection and corrosive casting techniques lose detail, no one made the connection with pulmonary arteries. "One of the great things about this research was that by using a new technique and having an undergraduate look at it with fresh eyes we found something new," says Longo.

Yo-yo rejects evolution. Yo-yo rejects creationism. Yet here he is on a forum entitled Evolution vs. Creation telling the rest of us to get a life and move on.

Pretty damn funny when you think about it.

I hate to break it to you, but your mythology is just that ... a myth.
People are doing what they always do, however, if that is what you meant.
And screwing things up, including science. That is inevitable.
Please tell us about your mythology.

You don't seem to have sufficient gravitas to have discovered that modern day science is wrong and you know how and why that is. Do you have science degrees in ALL the relevant fields that somehow impact on evolutionary theory??

Perhaps you could take some time and write up a paper on how wrong today's scientific take on evolution is. All you're doing here is stating that, in your opinion, this science is ALL wrong. We need details.

Science has already stated it's opinion and provided proof, we need to see yours proof.

No. not even close, but nice try. a religious fanatic buys onto a cult with no evidence whatsoever.

i look at evidence and rationally decide whether to agree with it or not.

you can't even get those terms right, just parroting what you heared otheres say without checking the veradcity of the argument. you sir, seem to be the fanatic.
