What difference does it make if the universe is steady state or not?

You probably do not understand that subject either.
So where in this great state do you live?

I hope it's not the cities.

well the obvious point was...if the steady state theory was the basis of your argument...it would simply nullify the idea of a the universe having a beginning...where as, the big bang theory is basically 'creation' without god.
To imply that the formation of, and the on going processes of the universe, has nothing to do with evolution is quite unrealistic.

"Soudan Underground Mine State Park, Soudan, Minnesota

Welcome to the Soudan Underground Laboratory, operated by the University of Minnesota in partnership with the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and the CDMS II and MINOS Collaborations. This unique facility is located almost a half-mile underground, and is designed to explore fundamental questions about the structure of our universe. Not all have answers (at least not yet) but we hope this guide and your hosts can help explain how we go about asking such questions, and why we think they are important. Enjoy your visit!"

Now i get the fudge...the concestor idea is what you do not get.

Like some others have the narrow definition of evolution as only reproduction and forget variation.

Or some here speaking "god bless", as if god was invented to bless stupidity.

No, neither one has anything to do with evolution. In both there is more than enough time for evolution to occur.

It is known now how the universe could create itself without breaking any laws of physics.

Another pointless post by Langy. And yes, I have been in the Soudan mine. It is cool in more ways than one.

No not pointless not at all.
Connect the dots.
I asked where did you live in the state.

I shed a bit of light in where in the state I spend time.

Pointless nope.

Wow. If I'm mistaken, then correct me. If we evolved from apes, then there was a real chewbacca sometime in the past, or do you prefer elite ape? lol

I disagree. Our common ancestor with the chimpanzee would be called an ape today and we also are still classified as apes.

So I suppose you could say we did not evolve "from" apes since we still are apes.

They keep denying that - not knowing that they're the only ones claiming it.
