same thing, all connected. A monkey is a monkey, and a human is a human. The truth will come out some day about all of this.

"We've done the paternity tests, we've traced back the genealogy, and we’re doing all kinds of in-depth testing of the human species. 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.

Again, most of the Christians in the world.

The U.S. is rather unique for having half of the population believing in creationism.

<quoted text>Of course they are myths.

How can you prove to me, and the world, that the earth is 10,000 years old or younger?
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN much older.

How can you prove to us that Adam and Eve were real?
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN they were NOT real.

How can you prove to us that Noah's flood was a real event?
Using scientific evidence Noah's flood can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that the 'Tower of Babel' incident occurred?
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that the Exodus happened.
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that Moses was real and that he wrote the Pentateuch?
There is strong scientific evidence that he was not a real person. The evidence says that the Pentateuch was written by at least 3 or 4 different authors and at a much later date then 1400+- BC.

There are proven anachronisms in the Pentateuch.

These anomalies in the Old Testament lead us to believe that Abraham, Lot, and Moses (and others), were not real persons.

What is the common ancestor...?

Is that the same as the missing link?

If not, why is the common ancestor still unknown or missing?

no, it is not. the fact that you use the term "missing link" shows you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. and i and many others here have spent time educating you about why the term missing link makes no sense, so why do you keep repeating it? do you like looking like an ignorant fool?

the primate that both humans and monkeys evolved from.... research it yourself and you will know the truth.

what childish names did i call anyone? pointing out your proven lies is not calling anyone a name, it is pointing out proven fact.
