No kitty, but Adam knew from the moment he was created. He knew his full language.

No not at all true.

The rules of debate state that you then have to forward reasons and if at all possible with sources and based on science.(since that is what we aim for here. A different kind of un-sciency theological debate can be had or other threads.)

Read your own article. They do not remove the entire rib, they remove a piece of it.

Evolution, the evidence is there in all the fossils and skeletons we see found every day.

<quoted text>if youe were to actually look at the real world around you, you would see that there are millions of types of eyes, from simple light sensing organds to eyes far more comples than the human eye.

why would your mythical god not give his favored creatures the best eye he could design and instead give it to a little shrimp?

your psalms, like the rest of your cult book does not reflect teh real world you could see with your own eyes accurately or honestly...
Is the word Cult suppose to be an insult?

cult\ˈkəlt\
noun
Usage: often attributive
1 : formal religious veneration : worship
2 : a system of religious beliefs and ritual:

God created man in his own image.

That's why we don't have wings and gills too.

Easy enough.
Q: When the ribs grow back after surgery, do they actually form new rib bone and reconnect to the spine, and how long does it take for this to happen?
A: Yes, the ribs do grow back, forming a new rib. This takes approximately two to three months.
http://www.scoliosis.org/resources/medicalupd...
Once again you failed. They cut out a piece of the rib. The same thing can be done with other bones too. The rib is not unique in this aspect. If you remove the entire rib I do not think you will find an article from a non-creatard medical source that claims it will grow back.

Of course it is incomplete And you gave the reason why. It still supports only the theory of evolution. It does not support creation at all.

No, the word cult is an accurate description of religion.

<quoted text>Interesting read, of on an entirely different track and bibliography:
http://vridar.wordpress.com/2010/06/20/which-...
Adam has cognates in surrounding languages all pointing to a bimorph male/female fertilify and fecundity god(dess).
Havva (M.hbr.Khava) means 'wide/broad birth' and adam 'fertile/fecundity ground'.
Tsela can mean taking from anything of the body, also the womb f.i.

Ah well, we read up and know this.
It's not to be taken literary.
Interesting. For now I'll stick with the rib.

I would think that anyone, who cannot tell the difference between a human and an ape...

should I post some pics?

Like I said, your concepts of relationships between apes and humans are strictly arbitrary, and made up...that's a fact, jack.

Well picked one at random.
http://www.usccb.org/bible/psalms/8/#23008005...
'son of man'=generic use of adam. So when you see 'adam' you read 'mankind'!
'god' in that psalm would be correctly translated as elohein /on of the judges, a 'judge'.
Mankind is small, a mere nothing. Is at core of that psalm.
PSALMS ARE NOT WRITTEN TO CONFIRM BUT SIMPLY VERSE IN SONG THAT USUALLY RELATE TO A PARAGRAPH IN SCRIPTURE. IF NOT THEY ARE PROBABLY LATER ADDED CHRISTIAN INTERPOLATIONS.
Angles(daft CE stuff) messenger of the court, or with the connotation: if around you are supposed to read between the lines, get the meaning behind it, open your eyes, and than open them again.

Langoliers it would be a start if you got at least that lesson of human kinds insignificance, instead of thnking mankind is the pinnacle and entire raison d'être for the universe.

Nothing else just asking what I stated that you claim was wrong. There was no Internet to imply something the you had not freely told me.

I work year round.

Speaking of hovland did you know that the last caribou in Minnesota was hit by a car and killed in hovland?

Adam was created with a full knowledge of language including the written word.

There was no need to evolve to a knowledge of language.
