"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."

pretty amazing that we have the info we do have then, isn't it? imagine if every creature ever alive was recorded in fossils...

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'tre 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?

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

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

<quoted text>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.
Only a small piece needs to be left for the rib to regenerate. Unlike other bones.

Claiming the fossil record as proof of evolution is a bit like claiming missing evidence is as good as real evidence.

You seem so uneducated today what's wrong?

The Bible clearly claims God created man in his image.

Like most creatards you have no clue what evidence is.

As I said, even honest creationists will admit that the fossil record only supports the theory of evolution. There is no scientific evidence for creation. So incomplete or not, even a little evidence, and there is far more than a little in the fossil record, beats no evidence at all.

And of course the DNA record is overwhelming evidence that evolution occurred. ERV's are a slam dunk. The odds of us sharing the ERV's that we do with chimpanzees by nonevolutionary means is on the order of 1 out of 10^880,000.

Really? Where is your evidence of that? The article you linked did not imply that at all.

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.
Map of Life - "Baculum (penile bone) in mammals"
http://www.mapoflife.org/topics/topic_203_Bac... -(penile-bone)-in-mammals/
March 02, 2013

So god created humans to have short and varied contacts.
Forget 'marriage'(anyone who read that in the garden story is of the path anyway) or 'shame'(there eyes were opened, they faced the world unveiled, death,disease , pain. Who gives a jot about some purist agenda.)
Maybe some man and women still have a vestigial baculum or baubellum.

Kind of jumping to conclusions again.

Atheist sure to to love this line of thinking for they all seem to use it.

Absent of evidence is proof!
