No not at all true.

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

"The Psalms confirm creation
Other books in the Bible, like the Psalms, confirm the Genesis account of the human creation. Consider the human eye. We may ask, who designed the first eye? How could the eye possibly be the product of an accidental mutation? How could aeons of gradual change produce an eye—an astoundingly complex organ that needs all of its highly integrated parts to function?
The psalmist gives the credit to God. "He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see?" (Psalm 94:9).
What did King David say about his own origins? "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14). He attributed his existence directly to God and went on to describe how the Creator knew all of his parts even while he was in his mother's womb (verses 15-16).
David asked the crucial question: "What is man that You are mindful of Him ...? You made him a little lower than the angels ..." (Psalm 8:4-5). He goes on to tell us how man has been given rule over the earth, including the flora and the fauna (verses 6-8).
Columnist Mark Steyn, writing in the British Spectator, said this pivotal passage "accurately conveys the central feature of our world—our dominion over pretty much everything else out there." He adds that the writer of this psalm "captured the essence of our reality better than your average geneticist" ("O Come, All Ye Faithless," Dec. 17, 2005)."
Addressed already, debunked, and completely humiliated. You should catch up.

as far as I know,they both bleed red...?

So you can create a list that says that all creatures that bleed red are related...propagate and teach it and tell it, until is accepted as "scienctific fact".

But It's still just an arbitrary concept.

Ok then on what part?
When you returned to posting after an absence I asked if you were up here "Grand Marais" you replied that you were still in the cities. You later takes about you heading north to Brained for a reunion. You also stated in the past that you only live up here in the winter time and return to the cities in the summer time.

Are you up here now? Could be but truly nothing I stated was wrong.

sorry I'm not...you can make up any arbitrary category you want based on similarities, and list humans under it...
you a fish as well...your inanimate matter....if you think that life began that way.
Their all arbitrary concepts.
your cult also believes humans came from inanimate matter...

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...

Take that up with God.
He says he did create Adam.
And something that atheist love to over look. Just like the Bible claims it is totally possible to create Eve from a rib from Adam. And the Rib used is the only bone known to regrow completely if removed. Interesting not bad for goat herders.
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.

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.)

"The fossil record, however, is quite incomplete. Here's one major reason why: Sediment has to cover an organism's remains in order for the long fossilization process to begin. Most organisms decompose before this can happen. Fossilization odds increase if the organism happened to exist in large numbers or lived in or around sediment. For example, trilobites, ancient marine arthropods, met both criteria, so they're rather common fossils. The Tyrannosaurus rex, however, is far rarer. It was large and land-dwelling, and as a top predator made up a far smaller percentage of the population."
