I'd wish him luck with that, but as has been noted for over 150 years, superstition has nothing to do with it.

It sounds like you are confusing adaptation and evolution. Evolution has been debunked. Adaptation is very real. I would encourage you to read up on the two subjects.

No, the problem is that there is a very legitimate source with those letters in the banned order in its URL's. Of course in its URL it is short for "Frequently Asked Question"s. The sensor bot here thinks that I am being rude and homophobic when neither is the case.

Hmm, a classic case of projection if I ever saw one.

Why yes I do. From Ohio State Univ. And yes I have, also at the same university. You should do some research instead of buying into creationist propaganda. You may be surprised.

Thank you. I have. And I follow the research all the time.

So I take it, you have no answer as to who has debunked evolution. Not a huge surprise.

Point taken. I sometimes have trouble processing pigeon English.

I will try to keep this simple. One of many reasons evolution has been debunked: there is there is no genetic mechanism that creates new genes. But "ape to human evolution" relies on apes and humans having the ability to create new genes with new functions. It cannot happen kids.

"...has been debunked."

I think we've cleared that up.

And still no answer.

Who told you this?
Genes or genetic makeup changes over time, it doesn't make new ones.
But it does make different ones. As far as new functions , genes all have the same function, nothing new about that.

I said it doesn't make new ones, but truthfully it does make new ones but they are copied, so they're not new as in brand new,
but in fact new copies.

I suppose you've never heard of gene duplication.

You keep saying it's been debunked but never provide any references or citations. Can you or are we to assume you're just blowing smoke?

Wrong. There are several different ways that mutations occur in DNA. By definition those are new genes.

And technically we are apes. We have been classified as apes long before Darwin's theory. In fact the person who first realized we were apes was Linnaeus.

Agreed. No new genes can be created, as evolution requires.

Fyi: Wikipedia is a poor source. Iv wouldn't trust it enough to formulate my own opinions.

We are apes? interesting. I can see why people would buy into the MSM on this issue. Something for you to think about: The human Y chromosome has twice as many genes as the Chimpanzee Y chromosome. Humans have at least 78 genes and Chimpanzees have only 37. The Y chromosomes of Chimpanzees and humans are radically different in the arrangement of their genes. What more need I say? Or should I continue?

(See 2010, Nature published a scientific paper entitled "Chimpanzee and human Y chromosomes are remarkably divergent in structure and gene content." Nature, by the way, is the most respected peer reviewed scientific journal for evolutionary genetics.)
