Creation clearly makes more sense because you can't disprove it. Evolution - it only takes one instance to prove it isn't true. But creationism is a much more viable and flexible theory because it's virtually un-disprovable.

It is not about just disproving TOE. Of course I can't disprove it, TOE is unfalsifiable. Creation can certainly draw predictions and I have been talking about them, you evo puppet. Remember junk dna and functioning non coding dna all support/prove evolution and so does decendants that predate their ancestors. Remember the same fossils support both human knuckle walking and non human knuckle walking ancestry. Straw men!!! TOE is unfalsifiable and has the predictive capability of a crystal ball. Hit and miss, but mostly miss. LOL!

All data supports the claim there are limits to adaptation, and is the validation of one of many creationist predictions. You don't have to like it and I most certainly don't need your/evo acceptance.

When one of you grows the brains to take up any one point from any of these links your reckon make you heroes, go for it! LOL!

That's what i thought, another religitard who can't step up to the idiocies listed in the bible. Religion kills brains dead. So you keep on bearing false witness. According to your silly book you will burn in hell. Your silly book says snakes can talk. Care to give us scientific evidence that this is possible? I didn't think so. Suck it religitard!

Thank you, bohart. I am trying to have patience with these evos but some here don't make it easy. I'd rather respond to you than Aura, the pretender turned troll spammer.
Evos will continue to post to save face on forum or defer to the bluster of the 'majority' when they loose a point. It happens every time. I don't care. They've had ages to give an appropriate reply. I have taken the point and am just messing around with them now.
As I have previously stated, additional to the research I can present, breeders have known there are limits to adaptation for centuries relating to artificial selection. A dog will never be bred as large as a dinosaur. How much less is limitless adaptation possible in the wild? The genome simply does not have that amount of variability.
Evo scientists wouldn't let a little thing like observational evidence get in the way of their belief system.
Agreed, no animal has been the recipient of more selective breeding than the race horse, guess what, it has hit a wall. They simply won't get any faster. There are limits! Of course the evo religionists will say , wait you need a million years to get faster! Time being their God and all.

Actually oh bible expert, scientists are always waffling on about the possibility of alien life and here we are trying to give them evidence of it but they are too stupid to realize it.

God walked with man as did other spirits that could transpose into other forms, in this case a snake. The physics behind it is supported by the fact that energy/light, which spirit forms are as is God, are able to form matter.

Now after you pick your dummy up off the floor maybe you evotards can actually present some postive research, you know SCIENCE, that supports an organisms ability to adapt without limit, instead of demonstrating yourselves to be evotards heading for the hills.

The data supports a creationist paradigm in that adaptation is limited and organisms will never adapt out of their familial group.

Until then you can keep fluffing in the wind and begging your philosophical hubris.

Hey there, funny you should mention horses. They are just another nested hierarchical mess.

It appears, algorithmic magic and not enough time is suddenly meant to handwave away observation.

5025 Well this discussion had drifted far from creatard inbreeding/evolution. To proof that apes and humans had no common descent. Because the book says we have fish.

MazHere wrote:

<quoted text>
You can't read. Even researchers admit lab experiments and nature are not evidence of an organisms ability to endlessly adapt per se ie macroevolution. Will you please start being sensible at least?

No, unlimited adaptation is NOT seen in the fossil record. What is seen in the fossil record is punctuated equilibrium. IOW, very different organisms assumed to be ancestral because they breathe.
No, unlimited adaptation is NOT seen in genomics, What is found is that apes and mankind have different molecular machinery despite a hand full of dyed enzymes being able to be hammered into a sequence bootstrapped to the human genome.

The other thing you forgot, oh smart one, is that an old scroll written thousands of years before TOE was even thought of, got the fossil record right before evoclowns had to steal it and glorify themselves with their great work. For example, with all your bluster about organic soups and rubbish, you lot ended up agreeing with that old scroll account of life starting in the sea. Amazing isn't it!. LOL!.

What (besides your playing in perceptions) is the evidence for your religious mind game?
For one the Bible. I read it through before I started really considering the reality of God acting in human events. I knew something unexplainable had acted in my behalf a number of times also. I was perplexed how people of faith, especially couples and their children, were stable and happy Vs others I knew (including my family), and I didn't want to fail in marriage and couldn't figure out the formula to make it work. So after another crash I walked away from (I working in heli aviation in Alaska) I felt this strong force telling me to decide now, so on the trip out I prayed and something very unique happened, they call it "born again", pretty good description I will say. Found out later alot of folks were praying for me that week,(they told me later). So there was reason and logic involved in part but in the end there was a greater force involved I didn't understand then. That's when my eyes were opened and I had real peace. So I then questioned how I had got so deep in my faith in evolution, went back mentally and let the two fly at each other. Creation won handily on the facts.

Dude needing another ironymeter is normal.

So this post is not the start:
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/T9Q...

However i found the reference on pg 5018:
(The problem is that she keeps changing the heading)

Where is the data that supports the paradigm of the talking snake?

MazHere wrote:

<quoted text>
So here we are today and the best you and the other evos here can do is beg sciences correcting mechanism. IOW, you are telling me that you cannot present any research that demonstrates the genomes ability to adapt endlessly and without limit while I can present plenty of research data that supports the opposite claim.
Well Subby that's just great Subby because despite your ridicule of our documented account, as far as SCIENCE goes you cannot scientifically refute my claim. The best you can do is beg your disbelief in the first documented account of life arising in the sea because you cannot refute the claim that the genomes ability to adapt is limited. That's great and you don't realize how great that is for us, like it or not.
The claim that the genome cannot possibly be billions of years old is a testable hypothesis that can be supported and falsified, and you evos cannot speak to it. GREAT! That's what I like to see, Subby. However as far as science goes, you're excuses are not acceptable.
This below is the testable claim using genomics that suggests life on earth cannot possibly be billions of years old.
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 mutationselection 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.
http://www.naturalnews.com/021220_genetic_mod ...
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
http://www.educatetruth.com/featured/dr-john -...
Life is devolving as per a documented account. Life must be much younger than the evolutionary model suggests. Evolutionary scientists can only offer complicated hypothesis as to why all data supports a creationist paradigm and gives evolutionists headaches.

You researched the ruler, not the tape measure.
Of course there is a limitation on small scale mutations, though catastrophic changes can force a new set of rules. This has been observed in the fossil record. Mutation, genetic drift, environmental pressure, radiation, natural selection is composed of many variables. It's restraints are viable to a single generation.
But it is realized that humans are evolving and we are in fact more genetically different from the humans that lived over 10,000 years ago, than they were from the Neandertal species.

This discovery shows your premise to be not only short sighted but completely wrong with all research. It os your personal beliefs driving your and Maz's thinking processes, and blinding you to the reality that evolutionary change is the driving force of life on Earth through the above mentioned avenues. It is of zero impact of reality that you protest the cold hard truth. Blinding yourself is all you achieve, so go ahead bury your head in the sand, and protest all you desire, but don't expect to have a thrall audience
that actually believes your nonsense.

Not this old dead horse again.

Please note that the actual article on the footprints says "bird-like". Even the best print does not quite have a reversed halux. It is close but not quite there. And without a skeleton there is not reason that it could not be a land based dinosaur that has developed a walk very close to that of birds, perhaps because the prints come from an arboreal dinosaur.

It is simply a question that is not quite answered yet, it is not evidence against evolution.

Maz, why don't you drop the articles that really don't support you? Oh yeah, because you have nothing except for grasping at straw.

Simple as in biologists did not claim this, at least not without some failsafe mechanism at play that would occur in a natural environment.

MH:
So here we are today and the best you and the other evos here can do is beg sciences correcting mechanism. IOW, you are telling me that you cannot present any research that demonstrates the genomes ability to adapt endlessly and without limit while I can present plenty of research data that supports the opposite claim.

Mazhere also gave a site of nature that did not show the article nor did she gave the first article that the one in nature was to be a continuance of. So she was essentially reasoning out of the blue, without any back-up.
And what might have it been about, since her claims about Darwin had no back-up one has to start doubting even the intellectual integrity.

Well one could show allsorts of mechanisms and Darwin and many others indeed allready having found the solution in natural selection and be done with it by ignoring ever dafter posts. That would have been the other option.

So what is the twit actually on about, why so inconsistent all the time. Almost like comparing apes and humans with inbred crea-horses and talking snakes?

Aha, the crazy women was all the time talking about apes and humans!

Why the hell can't she present her arguement accordingly?
Because it would sound very daft to state that inbred apes can't have caused inbred humans?
Well it does.
Ask Bohart for more advise.

I reckon it will be me hitting you over the head with your stupid fossils.
As always you fail, you fail to comprehebd what things like this really mean, discarding reality for what YOU WANT it to be. From your link.

((((Nonetheless, Melchor cautiously avoids saying birds made the prints. "These bird-like footprints can only be attributed to an unknown group of theropods showing some avian characteristics," he writes in the journal Nature.

Other bird specialists are intrigued but cautious, warning its hard to match footprints to their makers.

"I think it is pretty interesting but you can't necessarily assume that those are bird footprints," Luis Chiappe, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, told New Scientist.
Hard to convince

"They are neat tracks, and look avian, which would be remarkable given their age," says Emma Rainforth, curator of the Mesalands Dinosaur Museum in Tucumcari, New Mexico. But, she asks, "where are the tracks and skeletons of birds" for the next 55 million years?

The footprints might revive interest in a controversial fossil of the same age. They are the right size to match "Protoavis," says Sankar Chatterjee of Texas Tech University, who for a decade has had little success convincing other paleontologists that his discovery in the late 1980s was an ancestral bird.))))

<quoted text>
I can't see my reply to you so I'll do a quick repost.
This has resulted in the accumulation of a large number of deleterious mutations in sequences containing gene control elements and hence a widespread degradation of the genome during the evolution of humans and chimpanzees.
http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/1 ...
These results provide the first evidence that patterns of epistasis may differ for within- and between-gene interactions during adaptation and that diminishing returns epistasis contributes to the consistent observation of decelerating fitness gains during adaptation.
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/11 ...
I am taking the point, because like Aura all you will do is chase your tail instead of presenting this golden research you lot reckon you have so much of to support your dogma.
None of your research supports the genomes ability to adapt without limits. Indeed all your research demonstrates the opposite of this claim.

Subduction Zone:
It is hand holding time where we have to guide Maz through the articles that she misunderstands.

Okay, the first article is not a critique of human evolution. It points out the difference between hominid evolution and evolution of mice and rats. The population of mice and rats is very large. Just go out in nature and try to count the number in an area and you will find a natural population of hundreds if not thousands or more per square mile where the population of humans before modern agriculture was less than one per square mile even in the densest populations. There are two results of these population differences. Humans evolved much quicker, and they kept more bad mutations. Large populations eliminate bad mutations before they can become "fixed" in the genome. That is all that first article was about.

Okay, on to the next article.

Okay, Maz, your second article was about how the feedback between different genes, or epistasis, slows the rate of evolution. In other words one new gene can make a large change, but the interaction of several genes changing does not make a huge change. There is some observed stability in a species. Which is probably a good thing. Too rapid of a rate of evolution would mean that species would keep breaking up and competing with each other. There is a beneficial outcome of stability.

(Once again Maz picks articles that try to clear up how evolution works and tries to think that somehow they are evidence against evolution.

I do like how Maz brings new articles to read and ponder here. The funny thing is that they never support her beliefs.

We will probably have to explain this several times more to her before she understands what she has linked.)

MAAT: I let the comment stand because I wholeheartedly agree on the estimat of the abilities of this prejudiced badmouthed mutt.

Never seen the poster before!!!
