Your 3 BIG Myths:
1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.
2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.
3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.
And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.
"SNAP"
You really are nuts. I don't believe you can read anything and come up with anything intelligent. That is no myth.

Do you really think plants evolved into herbivores (those are animals that eat plants, just so you know)? That is Be-Tzar.

Poor bohart is an idiot at best.

He gets angry when his superstitions beliefs are challenged. I am always happy to supply evidence when requested. Since creationists have none a request for evidence tends to drive them a bit batty.

LOL!! Let me guess the paranoid Dan the stalker thinks I must be bohart too? Playing that card is getting old. Besides bohart has been around since 2008, about 4 1/2 years before I even started coning here. But I think it is funny he thinks when someone new comes in the room it must be me.

“In the entire first Christian century Jesus is not mentioned by a single Greek or roman scholar, politician, philosopher or poet. His name never occurs in a single inscription, and it is never found in a single piece of private correspondence. Zero! Zip references.”
Dr. Bart Ehrman, Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

"Philo, a prolific Jewish writer who lived from 20 BCE to 50 CE, wrote extensively about the political and theological movements throughout the Mediterranean, and his views foreshadowed Christian theology, yet he never once wrote anything about Jesus. Not only this, but he actually wrote about political conflicts between the Jews and Pontius Pilate in Judea."

Well they don't just sprout out of dirt. Are you asking where the first ones came from , because then you are asking the mystery of life.

Its probably correct. Since plants and animals share a eukaryote ancestor and that ancestor probably had chloroplasts and could photosynthesise then at least technically animals would have evolved from plants! But its not like a daffodil suddenly sprouted a mouth and legs.

That analogy hold true as much as saying,
Bicycles have wheels with spokes, the space shuttle had wheels with spokes. The space shuttle evolved out of a bicycle.

The main flaw is that we don't know that plants evolved before animal life, and the evidence suggests that animal life came before plants. A type of seaweed may precede animal life , but seaweed isn't really a plant. It's better to say photosynthesis came before
cellular respiration. But for what we relate to as being plant and animal life most likely evolved somewhat together.

Ok then we are at risk of arguing semantics and I dont want to start that.

You would agree that the first eukaryotic cell was most likely photosynthetic and that some eukaryotes lost that ability and that those retaining it gave rise to what we now know as plants while those losing it gave rise to animals?

Its even possible this split occurred after primitive multicellularity evolved and if thats the case you wiuld say that the animal evolved from the plant...

Either way I think we would agree that finding out the sequence is more important than issues of labelling. Perhaps my original comment was a bit pointless in that light.

I think common ancestry holds true , but we don't know quite what the Ediacarans, were or how that fit, it would for all intents
appear they're between plant and animal, did they split upon extinction to give rise to both?
One clue is Ediacaria but we don't even know what it was.

News flash! there is no evidence that a slime puddle came to life.


Perhaps. But there is certain evidence that something happened as once there was no life on Earth then there was. You seem to think it's some sort of blasphemy that science is investigating how it may have occurred.

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

You intentionally contort and disfigure the ToE to include the Big Bang Theory, speculation on the origin of life, man from chimps, gorillas, orangutans, etc. and a never ending dribble of other irrelevancies and falsehoods. When irrefutably corrected you lay low on that particular lie for a week or two and then do it all over again - all the while claiming some weird interpretation of God inspired moral superiority.

If the Bible said a pillow was stuffed with frog feathers you'd be swearing up and down that sometime in the last 6,000 years frogs grew feathers.
