Black Thunder's first fail was such a train wreck that I missed his second massive fail in his post.
Once again, the reason that there are no other hominids that can interbreed with man is that they went extinct. They all died off. They could not handle the pressure. Many animal species go extinct every year. Did you think that our relatives were immune to extinction?
You have failed to answer the posit that the human species was indeed separated for many thousands of years geologically on a global scale, yet is "still" capable of interbreeding...unlike your "circle species" would suggest happening.
You are making excuses for errant prediction now.

It isn't. That is the only idea that has scientific evidence supporting it. What evidence do you have that I am wrong?
You don't even know what a species is and neither does the theory of evolution when it comes to the origin of species.

You can't go by appearence alone and classify different species.

EXAMPLE: The grizzly bear and the polar bear is deemed as a different species, while they are able to produce fertile off-spring of both species called the polar-grizzly bear hybrid.

Look up the Genus species for the polar and grizzly bear and you will see they are classified as different species.

You see the equivocation problem with your species terrm?

No fail master. We have tons of evidence that supports our claims.
There is no scientific evidence for creation.
Do show that "tons of evidence" rather than your propensity to defamation in it's absence, as All I have witnessed so far is rhetoric...and poor rhetoric at that.

I am not a creationist, but neither am I going to swallow up the inaccuracies and misinformation you are presenting as factual and actuality.

You really don't know what you did wrong?
Reread the post you were responding to you clearly misunderstood it.
In fact you double fail.
You do not understand ring species and you did not understand woodtick's post.
Let's deal with ring species.
Some creatards try to define "kind" by the ability to breed. If a species is a "kind" they all should be able to breed with each other. This seems to be I.F's claim. Ring species shows that not to be the case.
I haven't "missed" anything.
Show how this is actuality concerning human evolution...

Then it should be quite easy to show and give example.

Where is it?
Where is the undeniable proof of the genetic progression of the human chromosome and the following physical evidence that verifies that posit?
When that is presented--THEN we will"know"...and only then.

the neandetals. and yes, we have the remains of several of them.

yes, it can be proven. most humans have neandertal DNA in them. most likely you do.

Of course not. They don't exist anymore and it's tough to get DNA from fossils unless they are fairly recent.

No evidence? You might not like the evidence but it's silly to claim there is none. There is.

So what's your problem, BT?

We got really nice DNA from the mummified/frozen Neandertal in the Italian alps. it is from that that we know that most humans today have neandertal DNA in us.

"In "Jurassic Park," scientists extract 80-million-year-old dino DNA from the bellies of mosquitoes trapped in amber. Researchers may never be able to extract genetic material that old and bring a T. rex back to life, but a new study suggests DNA can survive in fossils longer than previously believed.

The oldest DNA samples ever recovered are from insects and plants in ice cores in Greenland up to 800,000 years old. But researchers had not been able to determine the oldest possible DNA they could get from the fossil record because DNA's rate of decay had remained a mystery.

Now scientists in Australia report they've been able to estimate this rate based on a comparison of DNA from 158 fossilized leg bones from three species of the moa, an extinct group of flightless birds that once lived in New Zealand. The bones date between 600 and 8,000 years old and importantly all come from the same "

What do you think about this if it was true?

Ten years after the Arizona UFO incident known as the "Phoenix Lights," former Arizona Republican Governor Fife Symington, III, now says that he himself was a witness to one of the strange unidentified flying objects, even though he originally did not say so publicly.

"It was enormous and inexplicable," he said in an exclusive interview from his home in Phoenix. "Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too."

On March 13, 1997, during Symington's second term as Governor, thousands saw multiple triangular and V-shaped craft, gliding slowly and silently across the sky for half an hour beginning at approximately 8:15 pm. Awestruck witnesses, throughout the state, estimated that the eerie, lighted vehicles were bigger than many football fields, up to a mile long."

Yep. Though, again, those fossils were fairly recent.

Your failure to produce any proof...wiki is not proof of anything...scientific papers are even question until repeat experiment is shown to verify.
It's not tough anymore...science is rapidly improving in technique.

Yeah, the 521 years half-life story. That's been a topic of discussion here. Seems that it's a little controversial. Even the researcher themselves admitted that there could still be a great deal of variation in the so called half-life.
