To the lovely Cybele,
"There is overwhelming evidence that the ancestors of modern land plants evolved in aquatic environments, where they existed and diversified over millions of years. From one group of these organisms — probably ancestors of modern species of protists known as green algae — emerged a new branch on the tree of life. From this branch arose four groups of land plants, including the mosses, the ferns, the conifers, and the flowering plants. These groups are believed to represent a sequence that reflects the evolutionary history of land plants."

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, and are known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. Bees are a monophyletic lineage within the superfamily Apoidea, presently classified by the unranked taxon name Anthophila. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in seven to nine recognized families,[1] though many are undescribed and the actual number is probably higher. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants.

I thought science doesn't use the word "believe"

That is just a theory. It doesn't answer the question how flowers and bees and other pollinating insects co-evolved because of their symbiosis in nature.

that's an incomplete definition.

Mathematics .
a.
the act of changing the order of elements arranged in a particular order, as abc into acb, bac, etc., or of arranging a number of elements in groups made up of equal numbers of the elements in different orders, as a and b in ab and ba; a one-to-one transformation of a set with a finite number of elements.
b.
any of the resulting arrangements or groups. Compare combination

In Science, this mathematical permutation can be observed in DNA sequencing.

Cybele I know that you won't understand it. But yes, we do have slam dunk evidence that evolution is real.

We have better evidence than that for any person who has been put on Death Row. We have evidence from countless branches of science. To reject evolution you have to reject modern science.

Anyone who uses the words "just a theory" does not know what a theory is.

Thank you for showing us that you are completely ignorant about science.

Why is it that a person like Cybele will listen when a person in a greasy overall who did not graduate from high school tells her car needs a quart of oil and yet she will not believe people who spent their lives studying biology or paleontology or genetics or any other science related to evolution in any way that yes, we did evolve from one initial cell. And then even when we are willing to share our evidence with her, she thinks she knows better.

And creatards wonder why we get mad at them.

If you think I won't understand it, why don't you explain in plain English? Evolution is not modern science? Since when? Do you mean, REAL Science?

Yes indeed, just had an entertaining evening with the 27 markers of 9p23 at the TYRP1 gene.(not done frankly)
But neither in micro- nor macrochanges do we say:" cooey, what a nice permutation you got there...well done!"

Dumb downed info for people who are not familiar with the science. Go take a course in the science, then come back to me.

Unlike you, I don't have a belief that all of science is a big conspiracy lead by Satan to discredit God

Don't get me started.
Photons do amazing things in plants, or rather plants to them, multiple entanglement of a single photon.(or was that reviewed?)
And we have cells that flinch/contract when uv light hits them.
Even braincells react.
Still have to find a good article though.(that's the annoying thng about popular science programs, no sources, just making you curious.)
But UV light is instrumental in 'creating' handedness.(sorry also need to find a good source again. And creating is just a word i use whe id can't describe the process properly. Oh darn, i used the word 'process'.:000)

No, to reject evolution you have to reject modern science. I said exactly what I meant. For example if you are a Young Earth Creationist and at least believe the Earth goes around the Sun, then you reject all science from Newton on. That's the last 300 years of science that is being rejected. If you are an OEC you have to throw out the last 150 years of science. If you are an IDiot it is hard to say where we have to draw the line since it seems that even IDiots don't know what they believe.

SZ,
First of all, all species come from a single cell...in the mother's womb. It's a fact that you evolutionists stole the idea from in the first place. You would think that human DNA is capable of going through all that millions of mutations causing it to evolve from fish pond to amphibial most likely a frog (who was most likely kissed) to a reptilian (snake maybe that seduced Eve) to mammalian with fused chromosome so most likely monkeys (that realized bananas are healthier than penis). You evolutionists are comedy. LOL.
Okay now your just frolicking around.
But do you mind apologizing to the monkey...please

Don't be purposefully stupid. You know what is meant, and no, evolutionists did not "steal" that idea. Cybele is digging a hole for herself today. How foolish is she?

Dear one that is just carefull phrasing as is practiced in science.
And when you continue reading you will see a proper bloody dissection. Leading up to a conclusion.
Theory is the highest accolade in science.
But science would not be science is it did not leave the door open for self-correction, thus for improvement or even someone that completely overhrows it with a much better theory that can withstand proof.
So we went from Darwin, via Hamilton, to genomics.
So we are basicly not Darwinists but genomists. Thank you.

LOL. Did I ever tell you I'm a YEC? Now you're running out of excuses. Why don't you explain your ERV in plain English instead of this nonsense attacks. But you won't, because you use logical and grammatically correct English copy paste as a weapon. Fine and dandy, and quite convenient when you really need it. Because when you explain in plain English it takes away its magic. All of sudden you will be sounding like myth believers about their story of talking snakes.

Real Science can provide the same amount of logic in its language with real evidence. So thank you, I don't need your delusional Darwinian theory.
I disagree, science has it's own protocol for terms used. They do have a specific meaning. See you example permutation.
Every time i try to keep it simple i end up with ample posts explaining and clarifying.
Or worst of all some nitwit jumping in and taking the piece apart and accusing me or Genomists in general of not knowing their business.
Maybe it's also the approach. I'm used to looking for the most complex use of any theory and then searching for information so i can understand it. I can get bored quickly with an A to Z approach.
