Throw out all those posters and books that depict an ape evolving into a human being, says Kent State University Professor of Anthropology Dr. C. Owen Lovejoy. An internationally recognized biological anthropologist who specializes in the study of human origins, Lovejoy is one of the primary authors who revealed their research findings today on Ardipithecus ramidus, a hominid species that lived 4.4 million years ago in what is now Ethiopia. "People often think we evolved from apes, but no, apes in many ways evolved from us," Lovejoy said
You can say it. You can show it with pictures even a child or child-like mind can grasp. You can put it on the web for all to see, but idiots keep going to water on the misunderstood and erroneous notion that we evolved from apes. All that evolution has ever said, despite the misinformation and ignorance campaign is that we share a commone ancestor with apes.

A car fits, Corn? Really don't forget the billions and billions and billions of years yet to come. Corn would not ever come to be? Kind of sinks evolution don't you think?
Water landing on rocks in just a few millions years created life, right?
Teosinte (corn) could not evolve into corn? Really?
No it wouldn't have, no more than a chihuahua would have on it's own by wolves breeding.

The plant we know as corn is a kind of grass. Over time it was selected to serve up plump grains which are seeds. This kind is like a flowering plant, but it produces seperate male and female flowering parts and the male structure produces pollen while the silks snag the pollen from the wind. It is a flowering grass but doesn't need insect pollinators. It is what it is and it is a chosen kind.
So, considering that humans can selectively breed huge variations in living organisms, why is it so hard for you to understand that nature - specifically environmental change - can do a similar thing? And that given long enough, with enough environmental changes, that this change can easily exceed what man has done in a few centuries or millenia?

It is my belief that systems in nature produce porposeful results and change can occur if needs be to produce life on earth and allow for fruitful multiplying of all kinds that will work in outlined areas or niches.

Good that you said its a belief system, not an evidence based view.

How do you propose to test your idea against the current view that change is random but that some change happens to prove beneficial in some environments?

How do you propose to test this idea against the current view which is based on evidence of random mutation, not to mention the fact that 99% of species that ever existed on the earth are now extinct? Did they lack the tools within themselves?

Bible also says the Earth is flat, geocentric and that donkeys and lizards talk.

It's wrong. Period.

The universe was sterile and you wander where the life came from.

This forum shows how little is understood. Instead of being on here you could read a book and have your questions answered. It's called education.

Life isn't different to any other chemical process. Molecules link up, create protein chains and so forth.

The right chemicals in the water reacting with each other, sunlight, or the rocks would develop into life. Don't get hung up on the cell, that wasn't the first life, far from it.

Also remember evolution does not have a purpose or goal in mind, only to survive to pass on the gene. If you think theres a goal you're still being held back by your religious ideas.

We've mapped the genome, we have the proof.

If you think science is anti-theistic you haven't even grasped what science means.

Scientific opinon is not a democracy. It doesn't matter if a million scientists disagree with one if that one has proof he is right.

OH, there is plenty of proof for SCP theory, if they would admit it.
