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...

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.
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.

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

It's easy to get befriended by the wrong crowd,(the crowd you claim as friends).
Whether you live in their world or my world, you will be living with spirits... it's just the question of which kind of spirits you want to live with..the ones with unconditional love in heaven or the ones with unconditional hate in hell.
You only get two (2) choices in life, that's it.
Like I said, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
Spirits? You gotta be kidding. LOL

That may be, however that was not an answer to the question proposed to you.

So, I am left with the following assumptions,

Either you have not studied Newton or Kant and may get exposed in a lack of understanding, thus your desire to change how the argument is framed...

or,

You are only interested in attacking your opposition and their viewpoint...

You want to provide anything more for me to consider?

I noticed them between the ages of 18 and up, but I don't really have much in common with those much below 30. I still enjoy the view.

She probably knows. It seems to be a badge of honor these days.

I have not studied Kant. I have studied Newton's physics. He did much more than that, oops, I have also learned some calculus which he discovered too.

And I did not try to change how the argument, and actually it was not an argument it was a question. anyway how the question was formed. I tried to answer it the best I could.

So EXPERT, why ask such an inane question?

It has nothing to do with evolution. Since neither of the two had any real knowledge of the Big Bang it was a rather pointless question.

RED FLAG WARNING!

Before you go jumping on the subwayzone to never never land...notice the source he provided you was over a decade and a half old...Hmmm?

Now a lesson in deductive reasoning...

You have an individual that is looking to justify their position and is not aware of a popular review that took place over 13yrs ago..so ask yourself why would this person not be aware?

May it reveal youth and inexperience? Ignorance?

Try a google search using this term: annurev-earth-final-published. It will take you to a pdf file of Mary Higby Schweitzer's annual review article Soft Tissue Preservation in Terrestrial Mesozoic Vertebrates. This should get you started. I am reading it now myself.

Sorry for the round about way, but I couldn't get a direct link for some reason. Must be something I am not doing right with Research Gate.
