Darwin brought about the theory of evolution in the mid 19th century. Since then atheism has been on the rise greater than any other time in history and still is. Atheists push for evolution. Many scientists are atheist. Coincidence? Maybe!

Now the question is are more scientists becoming atheist from the evidence or are more atheist becoming scientists to push the theory?
If science controls the validity of evolution then the more atheist scientists that there are only strengthens their claim.
It's not a popularity race or contest. It's simply finding information. Science 'wins' because finding information is what it does.

Your religion has grabbed hold of an ancient book that claims to hold the secrets of the universe....and they ran with it, little suspecting that eventually science would prove it wrong.

The theory of evolution proposes that all biological reproductive species were the same (compatible) with the term LUCA (Last Universal Common Ancestor) and over time (not a factor) they became incompatible/opposite biological reproductive species like a human being and a rattle snake.
The theory of evolution is a clear contradictory of how nature works because biological reproductive species are either compatible (same) or incompatible (opposite), not both over billions (compatible and incompatible) of years because nature doesn't contradict its self.
The Theory of Evolution is in violation of the universal law of non-contradiction found in nature!
Let me give you some information and see what you think of it.

Just recently (2011) it was found that most non-African people alive today carry a small percentage of Neanderthal genes/blood in their body.

That means that somewhere in our distant past Homo-sapiens (us) and Homo-Neanderthalensis mated and produced fertile offspring.

Now that fact means that we and the Neanderthals are closely related (share a common ancestor), and that fact opens the door to our being related to the long line of other deceased Homo genus that anthropologists/archaeologists have found all over the old world,such as: Homo-heidelbergensis, Homo-erectus, Homo-habilis, etc.

In other words, science is telling us we ARE related to the great apes, and they now have a second line of proof.

How many generations does DNA last before it is bred out? What type/part of the DNA did they match to support their conclusion?

This does not even make sense.

It might last one generation. It might last billions. You share DNA with plants fer crud's sake, but our split with them was WAY back during the early eukaryote days.

Nearly seven billion people inhabit our planet. At least six billion carry the genes of Neandertal ancestors. Inheritance from Neandertals makes up approximately 3% of the genomes of randomly chosen people outside sub-Saharan Africa today (Green et al., 2010; Reich et al., 2010). A back-of-the-envelope calculation shows if we took all of the Neandertal genes from today’s human population, we would have enough raw material to make up 180 million Neandertals. John Hawks

Really. I believe they were before Darwin. It was 1769, with the creation of steam engined automobiles capable of human transport. In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas appeared and since then just got more improved upon.
Poor comparison.
If there were cars in 1806, there would have been tanks in 1863, the civil war would have been uglier.

I'm aware of the history. The modern automobile is generally attributed to Karl Benz. First car, 1885. So, on average, close enough.

So was yours. That was the point.
Karl Benz married a stripper named Mercedes.

Yep funny thing about facts. Fact is a tick is something that survives off of what others have to offer. By you playing off the shirt-tails of others,,,, Sums you up to a tee.

If you notice I was nice in my comment. I could have said ticks survive from sucking off of others.
