Actually we've presented plenty of evidence.
Not once is it addressed.
ah, if only that steady state theory had held up...you might have something present as real evidence.

that be a shame for sure. lol

WTF?

Clearly you don't know what you are talking about.

Why do you think that cosmology is part of the evolution debate?

Floats in what. Ice floats in most water but will sink in a lake when the ice goes "out" happens every spring. So ice does sink also.
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.

We are both from Minnesota and know that ice floats.

So, does ice float in your world? It does in mine.

Um, do you know anything about math, biology, or genetics? Anything at all? Well, anything beyond 12th grade?
If you factor in the optimal lifespan for every era and start with 8 people, we'd be extinct by about 100 years after such a bottleneck. Human genetic diversity was ever that great, if we were reduced to 8 people, even with today's technology, we'd go extinct, especially if all 8 people were directly related.

It has held up.

It has held up in science tests.

It has held up in court.

It has even held up here.

Since you uh, still haven't been able to address it yet.(shrug)

Charles, I have admitted that we have no *direct* evidence that God is not real.

What we do have however is powerful and true circumstantial evidence that the whole thing is merely myth, and it is very strong evidence. It is evidence that you apparently refuse to look at or acknowledge.

We can, with scientific evidence that can be looked at and repeated, show you science that disproves the very foundational stories of your holy book.

I ask why you keep coming to this forum because I don't understand what the attraction is to you. You know you are going to get slammed by the atheist and freethinker crowd that congregates here. Almost daily you are called names. You never present any data to back up your position.

Ah, my mistake. I assumed she was referring to biology and missed the part where she mentioned steady-state. In that case I'm not sure what point she's trying to make either.

1. We don't know for sure at this time.

2. ALL the applicable evidence points to us descending from the great ape line. As I've said before: archaeological, paleoanthropological, and DNA all concur independently.

The Smithsonian Institute has a really good website that answers these questions really well.

Religion has no way to debunk the evidence...it is solid and true. Every time religion has tried to debunk science it failed horribly. So I predict that religion WILL have to accept what I am saying and somehow do a workaround.

Real strong proof is going to be required for that statement.

You have no way of knowing this and I dispute that you have any evidence to prove it.

Remember we have some DNA from Neanderthals and Homo-sapiens of the time.

The steady state model is now largely discredited, as the observational evidence points to a Big Bang-type cosmology and a finite age of the universe.

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?
