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.

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?

The source actually said "it is believed" so now there you have it. Your own belief system.
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.

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.
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.

Okay let's take the fertilised egg.
Where is it going to nest and why is the nesting place as is??

I don't know why we need a space program. There's nothing out there, and nobody exists besides humans and our bio-diversity here on Earth. If they DID exist, we humans still reign supreme because clearly WE would be the ones to contact THEM, and not the other way around. If "extraterrestrials" were so "advanced" then WHY haven't they contacted us yet? And if anyone had any faith at all, they would realize that NOTHING is going to come and end the world until God decides it, and even THEN the world will never be destroyed utterly -- just the non-believers. After all, "the meek shall inherit the Earth" and Jesus will reign as King. Also, why do so many planets CONTINUOUSLY get hit with meteors and asteroids while we just "happen" to get lucky, with maybe an occasional meteoroid grazing or hitting land (Which is probably a warning from GOD anyway)? If any one of you is a scientist or a "logical" atheist who believes science is everything, then try to answer these questions. This is my challenge to all of you. If you can give me an intellectually honest, serious, well-thought-out response that DOESN'T merely have to do with childish insults and name calling, I will then re-consider everything I once thought I knew to be the truth.

___

Apparently no one knows how to answer my questions. I'm giving you ample opportunity to prove me wrong. I'm legitimately interested in your replies, and I promise I WILL NOT mock you. I'm encouraging some healthy debate here.

Hey Dummy....
The "Scientific Method" cannot respond to your questions any more than "Science" can.
Therefore, the individuals that most USE the Scientific Method (Scientists) are the best resource to employ in responding to your concern about the support of the Theory of Evolution by Science.
Face it.
You painted yourself in a corner.
No escape.
You lost.
Putz.
Best resources? LOL!!!!!!

Says who? What have scientists done lately for the world that any backwater farmer has done, like the Wight Brothers or the vats majority of inventers and innovaotirs that have done FAR MORE FOR SOCIETY THAN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY?

No sir. The scientific community, which is really just information monopoly, has brought us far more terrors like eugenics than anything else.

It is the real scientists like Tesla and Heron of Alexandria, and many other unsung heroes that were NEVER part of any community of scientists that have changed the world.

You are speaking out your ass, and making your "scientists" out to be the new priesthood, which is exactly what they are. We, the PEOPLE, use the scientific method every day. We, the PEOPLE, know more about the world than all the scientists that every have been, and ever will be. We, the PEOPLE, are at the front lines of science ... not those sycophants of Big Business who do as they are told, and obey their masters, and publish papers rather than get their hands dirty in the real world.

You sir, are a fraud with delusions of nobility and blind trust in your secular priesthood of Oz's. You, sir, are a flat-earther.

Man only knows what he can see, or touch, or measure. He's locked in to his own limitations and he is inherently flawed. Who is to say Evolution was not planned? We're nothing in this universe and to think we know the answers is rather vain to say the least.

Most here that you think we are making mean jokes of have been around since forever and keep not reading/learning. Repeating the same abusive shyte. A few pages back it was just flaming and always based upon incredulity, but no scientific arguement whatsoever. We can do this in our sleep.(I had a three nighter i'm still recovering from, yep speed up)
I normally respect believers but am really bad in dealing with abiding stupidity. So we know most of those posters allready for a long time.
And proselysing is also frowned upon.

Perhaps you missed my earlier post... back one page I think. Here it is again:
Signs of recent evolution by natural selection are widespread across the human genome, experts say.
Genome researchers at the University of Chicago have identified more than 700 regions in human DNA where apparently strong selection has occurred, driving the spread of genes linked to a broad range of characteristics.
"These are very recent eventswithin the past ten thousand years," said Jonathan Pritchard, a geneticist whose laboratory team conducted the study.
The results suggest that humans in different regions have continued to adapt in numerous ways to both environmental changes and cultural innovations.

Scientific proof is not a problem for evolution is has tremendous proof behind it. The problem is creotards constantly bickering about it and trying to convince the stupid people that its not true.
Lying for Jesus again...you people are so wrong and evil.
More fraud.

"experts say." No they are not experts. No one is.

"... 700 regions in human DNA where "apparently" strong selection ..." Non-committal language for plausible deniability when other scientists find contrary evidence. They don't want to put their careers on the line.

"... genes linked to a broad range of characteristics." Which are? Humans already have a VERY broad range of characteristics. And how have they isolated the ones they think are new?

"The results suggest that humans in different regions have continued to adapt in numerous ..." ADAPT! Not evolved, ADAPT! Not the same thing, but poor scientists switch the words around to hoodwink us all the time.

"The results suggest that humans in different regions have continued to adapt in numerous ways to both environmental changes and cultural innovations."

Holy shit, are you kidding me? We don't need evolution for this! A known historical FACT that is self-evident, which is NOT evidence of evolution, but evidence of humanity very good ability to adapt to all sorts of changes.

Lying for science again? If you don't see the errors of your own sources, you are hopefully. I REALLY should not have to point this out to you.

Dude. I hate to break it to you. But you don't understand even the basics.

And no one has asserted a conspiracy against God. MOST OF THE SCIENTISTS that advanced evolution have been CHRISTIANS and JEWS.

You are a fraud, and I must so, old chap, that I detest frauds.

Science denier, that is amusing. Actually, it's been going on for a 150 years, and you are the evidence of it.

And what the hell is a langolier?

No, don't answer. I'm sure it's just more proof of your hatred of humanity and total bigotry.

By calculating the chances we say it's not planned.
Unless you are going to tell me that also every extinction was planned.
Tomorrow let's go for the bees.
Good move, since that kills of most plants that provide our food, thus ultimately us.
But the earth does not care whether we live or die.
Some other species goes on or evolves from tried and tested methods. Just because they work and the biochemistry and environment is right.
Or we see 'adaptation to changing environment' allready in f.i. melanogaster and other one-day-flies(it's an expression) so some insect will take it's place that's less specialised.
Specialised would be like the wasp that used to have a symbiotic relation with the olive trees.

And why should i hate humanity and be a bigot?

You don't understand evolution and that's the only message you are giving of for pages. And what the farmer does not know he won't eat. But most can't even read the bible properly but swallow it hook line and sinker anyway.

By your own posts.

I understand evolution perfectly more than the general population by far. For one, it's not that complex. For another, it's not that mysterious. It is unusual in that intuition suggests that it is true, and yet not evidence in nature or biology confirm the model.

What? What the farmer does not know he won't eat? What the hell are you talking about? That is what I mean by bigotry, you obviously have very demeaning ideas about farmers.

Yes, humans are sometimes too trusting of other people's claims, and don't ask questions. Which is why there are bad Christians ... and bad people like you that take evolution on faith from other "authorities."
