WTF?
Clearly you don't know what you are talking about.
Why do you think that cosmology is part of the evolution debate?
well if I have to explain your own scienctific concepts to you...

cosmology is theoretical scienctific ideas of origin.

and the whole debate is about origin...as in origin of species...is it not?

Nope, any change in the genetic code is evolution, it's not direction oriented.

I would like to pose this question.

What is the origin of evolution?

so you have the earth covered in water...sometime in the past...and science concurring to this fact...with the only difference being the time frame of reference.

The Earth was never fully covered in water, there was always dry land.

<quoted text>No, ice always floats on water. This is because of the water displacement, which is pretty much the same reason any ship in tact will also float. However due to the weight of the ice, most of it will be underwater, but there will always be some above water. Ice displaces water because of it's molecular structure, when the water is frozen the molecules will arrange into a very uniform pattern, because of the valence of the atoms, which is also why water expands when frozen. The empty space between the atoms is too small for water to pass though, so it displaces the water.
Wrong! When the ice goes out on a lake it does it in a matter of a few hours and it sinks not to the bottom but down a good 5 to 10 feet. I have been on the lake when this takes place. So don't tell me it don't happen.

<quoted text>We are both from Minnesota and know that ice floats.

So, does ice float in your world? It does in mine.
As I said it floats until it goes out on a lake in those few hours it slips below the surface of the water. It still floats just not above all the water. If you are a Minnesotan you should know this. I live on a bigger lake for over ten years and have been on the lake when the ice goes out.

Not really, since evolution is not goal-directed. For instance cave-dwelling lizards losing their eyes is actually a benefit since they no longer have to expend energy on organs they no longer use. But if you wanna call it "devolution" then go ahead, doesn't make much difference. Because the same result is speciation. An organism with a certain genome has offspring whose genome continually changes over the generations until it is significantly different from its forbears.

And in your case you proposed an error margin of 6,000 percent. I've heard of covering your bases, but geez...

"Just 2% to 3% of the Earth's surface would have been dry land, compared with 28% today."

So Koder was correct.

Nope more like 2 or 3% were water before the flood.

And unlike today most of it was very inhabitable.

so you actually have that much faith that you would believe that science could tell that there was 2% land mass on the earth 2.5 billion years ago?...without margin of error greater that 1%?

talked about brained washed...lol
