So Maz, which one do you want to debate first? You know that you are wrong of course. I don't have too much to do right now so I should be able to give it some attention.
You must gave scared Maz off with all your expertize in all fields of science.(note the sarcasm) lol

Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In this essay, I discuss the implications of these problems for the conduct and interpretation of research.
http://www.plosmedicine.org/article/info:doi/...
Some genetic phenomena originate as mutations that are initially advantageous but decline in fitness until they become distinctly deleterious. Here I give the condition for a mutation–selection balance to form and describe some of the properties of the resulting equilibrium population. A characterization is also given of the fixation probabilities for such mutations.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3...
As a result, the human race is genetically mutating, according to Japanese geneticist Yusaku Nakabeppu of Kyushu University and his team, who released their findings Monday in the trade journal Genome Research.

These data support models in which negative epistasis contributes to declining rates of adaptation over time.
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/11...
In other words, random detrimental mutations build up in the gene pools of living things with a low reproductive rate far far faster than natural selection can get rid of them. This generally accepted fact of modern science strongly implies, therefore, that we have devolved, not evolved, from an originally superior state, as a species or collective gene pool, compared to our current rapidly degenerating condition

Life is devolving as per a documented account. Sanford is a well credentialed and published researcher. Evolutionary scientists can only offer complicated hypothesis as to why all data supports a creationist pardigm and gives evolutionists headaches.
Maz not saying you are an idiot but at least learn to post links that work. Most all of your links did not work.

At least you took the time to read the links before coming to your conclusion. But wait! The links did not work in that post. So you show you don't read links, you just give opinions.
You know what the say about opinions - they are like @ssholes, everybody has one and they all stink.
Actually read them after a working link was posted .

The first one is...

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.

That would tend to hurt or damage the credibility of anymore links but we will go on anyway.

The next one isn't about humans, it doesn't even fit the description..

Asexuals, Polyploids, Evolutionary Opportunists.

The next one is a magazine article opinion piece, hardly qualify as science though it is sciency.

Genetic code of human race is deteriorating due to environmental factors

Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/021220_genetic_mod...

Last the link is to an religious fundy opinion piece.
So bad went to worse. So you have one scientific paper that is unrelated to what she is saying. What do you want? A Pulitzer Prize for irrelevancy?

Do you have any links to websites documenting the science of the talking snake?

Can any of these philosophers here refute Sanfords work on genetic entropy, whom was dismissed on the back of evos flawed assumptions, and is now being validated?
“Haldane (1927) showed that an organism that suffers regular mutations with fixed deleterious effects evolves toward a stable mutation–selection balance. Wright and Dobzhansky (1946) introduced the study of nonfixed fitnesses and considered the effects of frequency-dependent fitness values, while Kimura and Ohta (1970) studied advantageous mutations (inversions) that gradually lose their fitness advantage. Here I present results for the population genetics of positive mutations that with time become truly deleterious.”

http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/11 ...
We found that epistatic interactions between beneficial mutations were all antagonistic—the effects of the double mutations were less than the sums of the effects of their component single mutations. We found a number of cases of decompensatory interactions, an extreme form of antagonistic epistasis in which the second mutation is actually deleterious in the presence of the first. In the vast majority of cases, recombination uniting two beneficial mutations into the same genome would not be favored by selection, as the recombinant could not outcompete its constituent single mutations.

Ayala tried to tell them the same thing 40 years ago as an evolutionist, he called it "genetic load" and gave man only 500 generations or so. Under the same program, if man was here 2mil/y the number of bones would have filled the known universe, but unform clocks mean nothing to these folks..

<quoted text>
The snake in the Garden of Eden was Adam and a part of his anatomy. He was also the tree of (carnal) knowledge. Adam and Eve were given two commandments both concerning sex, one positive (be fruitful and multiply), and one negative (no sodomy). The fruit from the tree was not literally an apple, if it was, there would be a commandment about not eating apples. Although Adam and Eve were real people, the story is allegorical.

SBT, bones decompose over time. Populations do not follow Kent Hovinds simple exponential curve.

If Ayala tried to make his claim 40 years ago he was wrong then. The only reason that our population made be "devolving" is because now we can takes care of the genetically inferior.

In the past natural selection culled the human race, stopping "devolution". We don't have that now, we have evolution.

Just to make sure this gets out there.

Atheism is not a religion or nothing like a religion. Baahahahahaha.

Atheist 'mega-churches' take root across US, world.

LOS ANGELES — It looked like a typical Sunday morning at any mega-church. Hundreds packed in for more than an hour of rousing music, an inspirational sermon, a reading and some quiet reflection. The only thing missing was God.

On Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted more than 400 attendees, all bound by their belief in non-belief. Similar gatherings in San Diego, Nashville, New York and other U.S. cities have drawn hundreds of atheists seeking the camaraderie of a congregation without religion or ritual.
