You've done nothing but lie hundreds of times. Tell me again how a maternity ward is proof of abiogenesis? You puddle gooist fundie.
I never lied to you. You have. Like now for instance. I never claimed a maternity ward is proof of abiogenesis, I pointed out that it was evidence of natural chemical processes producing life. Abiogenesis proposes natural chemical processes producing life. You claim natural chemical processes producing life is impossible. You are unable to demonstrate it of course.

just because they say it's not a religion does not mean it's not a religion .. the religion of no-religion .. the first church of no-belief ... until atheists can prove their religious belief .. it will stay a belief ... much much much faith required ... I find some atheists more militant evangelical than most religious folks

Abio is still under investigation. I'm not lying though. However abio is still irrelevant to the scientific validity of evolution.

<quoted text>The fact that I know so much about biology is proven by your fear in attempting to provide any biological evidence for evolution. It is a circular argument, biology proves evolution, evolution proves biology
But I have not made the latter claim. Therefore it's not circular.
Oscar Wilde_ wrote:
but there can be no science in it since science does not deal in proves.
And I've never claimed "proof", only evidence. And in fact I've tried to explain the proof thing to xxxoooxxx and bohart many times, but they don't get it either.

Dude, all I see from you are copy/paste which you do not comprehend. If you did, then you would know that they prove or evidence nothing.
All you see is what you want to see. But what I don't see from you is any rational rebuttal, evidence against it, nor even any basic understanding.

<quoted text>If we are going to try it again, then lets be accurate. Parts of biological evolution theory is observed and demonstrated but it certainly is not completely observed and demonstrated in it's entirety.
Absent any evidence for or against a deity is no reason to have or not to have an opinion on the diety in the first place. It certainly is not reason to not believe in one if you do choose. The evidence most people have are not the type you can articulate easily and stem from personal experiences. Your lack of belief is no reason for them not to. There is nothing unscientific about it.
My "lack of belief"?

If by that you mean my reluctance to accept your hallucinations as my own, okay.

Point of fact: the fossil record provides a clear and demonstrated line of descent from the earliest life-forms to the most recent.

The geological column provides an accurate time frame for the same.

There is absolutely NO reason to inject a deity into the process.

Yeah, and there's a guy called HTS on another thread who claimed to have 4 years medical training, but that was quickly shot down. You could be all sorts of smarts, but as long as you keep asking us to present evidence of broken nested hierarchy then you know jack about biology.

Where Did the Information Come From?

Darwin’s Dilemma explores one of the great mysteries in the history of life: The geologically-sudden appearance of dozens of major complex animal types in the fossil record without any trace of the gradual transitional steps Charles Darwin had predicted. Frequently described as “the Cambrian Explosion,” the development of these new animal types required a massive increase in genetic information.“The big question that the Cambrian Explosion poses is where does all that new information come from?” says Dr. Stephen Meyer, a featured expert in the documentary and author of the book Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design ... http://www.darwinsdilemma.org/ .. continue

“This is a very effective way to present both the theory of intelligent design and the weaknesses of Darwinian evolution in a classroom or any other educational setting.”

A six-part educational series exploring the theory of intelligent design

Where Does the Evidence Lead was created for classroom, group, and individual study. It is based upon the content of Unlocking the Mystery of Life and examines both Darwinian evolution and the scientific case for intelligent design. Six modules (eight to fourteen minutes in duration) each present a specific facet of the debate over the theories of materialistic evolution and design ... http://www.wheredoestheevidencelead.com/ .. continue

Sure there's militant atheists. There's a guy who calls himself 'Skeptic' on these boards. I call him Skippy. He's an idiot.

That's got little to do with this thread though.

Unfortunately they have no evidence for ID. As for the Cambrian explosion, that's not a sudden increase of genetic information, but a sudden increase in fossils. That's due to the development of hard-bodied shells as opposed to the soft-bodied organisms that went before. Just as evolution would predict.

<quoted text>Sigh, ring species is a red hearing. It's the "well, we are almost there so it must be true". Next time you are in a car with someone else driving, try opening a phone book and picking a random address and then saying "well, we are almost there so it must be true" and see how close you get.
Of course I'm not saying observations of ring species are random picks like that, but the credibility simply isn't there yet. We have been managing the breeding and in some cases even created the ring species but we have yet to create a new species because of it. Of course this goes back to the Species problem too.
If they are genetically incompatible then they're different species.
adif understanding wrote:
No, you are wrong. The salamanders and gulls I specifically mentioned are claimed as speciation events and there is absolutely no genetic incompatibilities. The only genetic problems they have is the southern salamanders choose not to mate with the northern salamanders. They are genetically identical as a species other then that trait and the gulls are one separate migration paths. After looking for a cite, I see they are backing away from the claim of speciation now and claiming a step in speciation with the salamanders.
I'm not talking about those who are still genetically close enough to breed.
adif understanding wrote:
Exactly but that leads to the canine problem in which all breeds of dogs would be considered a separate species with some common ancestors. It presents a problem with reality when we understand and know dogs to be the same species. So how do we know those two sets of fossils that are different species with a common ancestor is not in reality the equivalent of a German Shepard and a Great Dane and the same species if they were alive and observed in real time?
The point is irrelevant since there is still observable change, which is what evolution predicts.

Yep, it sure is. But it is hardley presented as a possibility and generally presented as fact which is not a scientific claim.

Here we go again! A maternity ward is proof of existing life producing life. You damn right I claim natural chemical processes without existing life, can produce life. If you claim that you are a seriously brainwashed puddle goo fundie awash in denial. Or just a liar, either one fits.

Droll pun. But artificially mimicking nature doesn't necessarily mean nature is designed. It might be, but you have no evidence. So instead you keep pointing to things humans make instead.

"The solar system is designed? Please demonstrate this in an objective manner via the scientific method."

"Here, look! This is an orrery!"
