Of course you can pretend to ignore the HIGHLY racist position of Genesis though, where it started with one pair of "perfect" humans (mostly depicted as white, what, with being made in GODS IMAGE and all) and then it allegedly went all downhill from there.
Sorry Genesis never talks about skin color

Much more. It is backed by evidence. It's astonishing that a sentient being is incapable of understanding this simple concept.
Please , tell me about this life giving slime, and how it came to life, and how you are a descendant of a rat!

People are apes and the descendants of apes, who were the descendants of rat-like primates, who were the children of reptiles, who were the spawn of amphibians, who were the terrestrial progeny of fish, who came from worms, who were assembled from single-celled microorganisms, who were the products of chemistry. Your daddy was a film of chemical slime on a Hadean rock, and he didn't care about you—he was only obeying the laws of thermodynamics.

Just imagine when humans first entered North America from Asia. Paleo-Indians settle in America over 10,000 years ago. They find lakes, many of them teeming with fish.

Where did the fish come from?

It is believed that humans and Neanderthals share a common ancestor....probably Homo-heidelbergensis.

We know for a fact that humans carry a small percentage of Neanderthal genes/blood. This simply means that humans and Neanderthals mated and produced fertile offspring long long ago. This opens up our lineage to other Homo genus' down the line.

This also incidentally blows the Adam and Eve myth out of the water...big repercussions there.

And then there are the lakes with no fish in them....how did that happen??

Incorrect. Time was created by God outside (because it didn't exist yet) our universe. God is not held to the law of Physics that he creates for the universe.

Good Lord! you speak of the first two human beings as a myth and you believe that slime turned into worms then turned into fish that ate the worms!

Without question you guys will say and believe in anything to defend your beliefs.

Far as I know there is no missing link ..oh wait ..that's yesterday's theory ..the new one is common ancestors.

There is no evidence of evolution ..between species ..

Man is man..always was man ..created by God as man ..

Most likely it has to do with salinity.

What evidence? you and the other idiots pool your intelligence and come up with evidence of the life giving sludge.
Look, jackass, you can argue against the evidence but to say "What evidence?" is proof positive what an uneducated fool you are. Not to mention YOUR idiot comments on sludge and goo. You are misinformed and uneducated. If you want to make points stop acting like a five year old and get up to speed.*IF* that's even possible. Which I seriously doubt
