The species term you are referring to is un-provable or verifiable by the biological species term I use which is the foundation to my reasoning when I speak of fixed species for the orign of species. Similarity in sheleton structure can be interpreted as common design by the creator(s).
Except there's zero evidence of design. You have no designer, no mechanisms, and no scientific predictions on why we don't see other examples of common designs that do not fit with nested hierarchies.

Centaurs? Common design.

Pegasus? Common design.

Sphinx?

Pigs with compound eyes? Common design.

Why don't we see any of these? All are possible under common design.

What is the likelihood of finding a fossil with feathers and three middle-ear bones?

In other words, we both can assume using any species term except the biological species term I am using as the basis to my fixed species concept.
Your terms are irrelevant.

Of course you do. You have assumed design based on zero evidence.

This does not prevent life from changing over time. In fact that is precisely what we observe.

My excuse is that "The Dude" told me I was a mutant, I told my wife that and I landed on the couch. So I had nothing else to do but write you folks @ 3am..
At least you can have the piece of mind that no reproductions of me will come along if this keeps up..
Well I for one am glad you are not cloned.

Uh, Curtis? Just checking, your pals didn't clone this guy, did they? By FSM I hope not.

Sorry, but the case has passed not only the courts but plenty of scientific testing. I would say that you SHOULD know this, since I've posted the linky demonstrating this for you many times now.
But then we both know you've never read it and couldn't understand it even if you did.(shrug)
That's why you just posted a linky which still supported evolution rather than putting it in doubt. Oh well.
And I'm sure that a governmental court that supports science would be totally impartial and unbias...lol

You haven't a clue.

Of course you did. You said you worshipped God and didn't idolize the Bible, then in the same sentence claimed the Bible was the "Word of God". We have long since established that it was written by ancient superstitious people's who didn't get out much past their little corner of the Middle East which helps explain some of their scientific inaccuracies.

You uh, HAVE been keeping up with this thread, yes?

<quoted text>I CHALLENGE YOU TO SHOW ME AND EVERYONE ON THIS THREAD WHERE MOSES OWNED EVEN 1 SLAVE. See if your behind can cover the check your yapper wrote.
Who says Moses owned a slave? He might have, I don't recall. What YOU said was that the Bible (which apparently you've never even read) did NOT endorse slavery and we pointed to numerous scriptural passages demonstrating otherwise. Which means either you were plain wrong (as most fundies are) or were LYING to us, once again flagrantly ignoring the 9th Commandment which you claim was written by God Himself. This was then followed by CBOW copy-pasting some rather distasteful apologetics from some idiotic fundie site attempting to rationalize slavery.

I have heard there are buried palm trees and other warm weather plants in Antarctica.
But no velociraptors and humans buried together in Antarctica. Strange that.

Sure, they'd just fund science that you don't like for centuries without getting any scientific results from it just for the sake of the big massive evil worldwide atheist Darwinist evolutionist time-travelling conspiracy. Your final sentence there is particularly ironic.

Yes. The posited connection of South America, Antarctica, India, and Australia, was a political ploy connived in conjunction with scientists and the UN by the Secret One World Government.
