It is up to the person making the positive claim to provide evidence when demanded. And again, since this is an internet debate that means links.

That way we can check out the validity of your sources.
You don't have Darwin's books commuted to memory?

Feel free to look them up here.

You mean "ridiculous", honey bunny. Otherwise you're doing pretty good for someone whose second language is English.

It's a paradox for the Big Bang.

God is no excuse, he is the answer.

First 3 words in the bible shows how important time is to the universe.

Does Evolution contradict the Bible?
Is it possible to believe in evolution and still be a Christian? If being a Christian means believing that the Bible is the authentic, trustworthy Word of God and that Christ is our Creator and Savior, the answer is “No.” One cannot believe these things and also believe in evolution as the explanation for the origin of life on our earth as we know it.
Pope John Paul said that evolution is happening and is real. So since he was not a literalist he is in hell along with Ghandi?

Your bible on evolution is racist.
It's author was racist.
Many followers are also racist.
Book and page numbers are in some of the post.
You posted a passage from a novel called The Clansman by Baptist minister Thomas Dixon Jr. and claimed that it was Darwin. You lie.

So what view point of time would you lean towards, Newton or Kant?

To date up to date in date dates are soon nothing of any means unless you have something to schedule to agendarise it won't do you no good neither in that would time...

Who has all of all data, Darwin?
Where would they be stored?

I tend not to notice the young ones for obvious reasons but I couldn't help noticing a young lady in her Chivas de Guadalujara jersey at Mass this morning. I wonder if she knows.

Yes, if you have false beliefs then evolution may debunk them. But that is not evolution's fault. That is your fault. Worldwide most Christians accept evolution. You can believe whatever you want, you can believe that 2 + 2 = 5 or whatever other nonsense that you want to believe. Just don't ask others to take you too seriously or get offended when they laugh at you.

I don't think either would have very much to say about this subject.

Astronomy had barely moved Earth out of the center of the universe at Newton's time and Kant was a philosopher who probably knew very little physics if any.

Hey Sub, what is all this I hear about dinosaur collagen and soft tissue? Can you explain or point me towards some scientific links about it?

There was a T-Rex found that after treating with acid they found what looked like remnants of connective tissue. At one point they thought they may have found evidence of blood cells too, but that did not pan out. There are traces of DNA too, if I remember right. Here is an article about it:

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/...

This article makes a good point. They had to break the bone open for transit. It was too large and too fragile and in too remote of a location to transport whole. Terrestrial fossils are very rarely if ever broken open since they are exceedingly rare. No scientist seems to think that this is a serious problem. It is very interesting but that is all.
