You didn't understand the answer.
You asked, "Can science create a natural human brain?"

I responded, "Science describes by observation and testing, it creates understanding."

"Science" does not create brains, gall bladders, computers or yo-yos. It describes. Your question is fallacious.

The Miracle of Life:
from the Emmy award winning PBS nova broadcast.
Four and a half billion years ago, the young planet Earth was a mass of cosmic dust and particles. It was almost completely engulfed by the shallow primordial seas. Powerful winds gathered random molecules from the atmosphere .Some were deposited in the seas. Tides and currents swept the molecules together. And somewhere in this ancient ocean the miracle of life began....
The real miracle is how someone can claim this nonsense is scientific!
Here in all it's glory is the real creation myth!Hell! it even claims it was a miracle! can't get more religious than that.
Aura, here's your creation myth! ha,ha,ha.

all you puddle people need to assemble life is winds, tides and currents along with a few random molecules eh?

You members of the Liars R us club will believe in anything no matter how stupid.

The difference in us is I believe a being called God created life, you believe life created itself.
...and you believe that's logical? since there's zero evidence of that it's a belief. Hey! your religion is fun.
yes, zero evidence for any god. and most likely the god you believe in has been proven to be false... yeah...religion is fun..

I am going to repost this:
LetÂ’s do a little comparison.
The bible says God created life.
Science says life created itself.
The bible says we all descend from 8 people.
Science says we all come from common ancestors and at one point, from the same organism.
The bible says the earth, sun and moon were created at/around the same time.
Science says the earth and moon are 4.5 billion years old and the sun is 4.6 billion years old. Pretty much around the same time given that much time.
There is sort of a trend/similarity there, just different beliefs.
no, no similarities there...

remember the bible says the Earth was formed and populated with plants before the sun was created...quite different stories. one impossible, one proven by fact...

I did! Did you miss it? Here I will post it again.
It all starts at conception,,, skip ahead. The child is born,,, skip ahead,,, The child eats and grows,,, skip ahead,,, learns to crawl then walk,,, skip ahead,,, gets a bike for their birthday with training wheels,,, skip ahead,,, eventually the training wheels can be taken off because they learn to get on that bike and just ride it. That is how it works. Hopefully you will loose your training wheels in life soon.
jeez what a tool! how many times are you going to mispell the word lose?

you still haven't given a better answer, or any answer at all for how a bike works. why is that? i gave a perfectly clear, accurate and concise answer in about three seconds thinking, it has been over two weeks and still nothing from you...

pretty much the same theory you buy into, yet your cult needs a proven false god to do the exact same thing....how sensible is that?

yet we have irrefutable evidence that humans cut those rocks and put them in place.

no evidence whatsoever that nay god, gods, or goddesses put any of the most common elements of the universe together to form life...not one shred...

You are amazingly irrational, you buy into a theory with absolutely no evidence , then berate others for what you say is the same thing!

You are operating from a philosophically religious viewpoint, so please you and your ilk should stop hiding behind science. It doesn't support your beliefs with evidence

i buy into no irrational theories, i just do not find it so amazing that life is made up of the most common elements of the universe that i need to invent some god. very simple.

Poor bohart, all he can do is to repeat this obvious fallacy.

bohart, you do not even know what qualifies as evidence. There are literally mountains of evidence supporting evolution and none supporting your beliefs.

But do you know who does understand evidence? Judges understand evidence. So even though they may not fully understand the science when both sides are put before them they always rule on the evolutionist side. They can see that your idiots totally lack any supporting evidence at all.

In the Dover trial the creationists got their dream judge, and they still lost. And they always will lose.

I am still willing to help you learn. Of course you have to try to act like an adult first.

To say there is no evidence is incorrect. You may disagree with it but to claim it does not exists shows you to be an uneducated hick, an unmitigated fool or blatant liar. Probably a combination of all three.

But keep posting your childish "puddle of goo" crap and reinforce your well-deserved status as a twit.

So provide something to back this up. Where is this science? Who are these scientists? Though I expect you just continue to post pre-school drivel.

Hey, thanks for posting that. Hilarious. Especially the links and footnotes to nowhere.

BTW, if you're not a creationist - as you recently claimed - why to you link to creationists websites?
