Oh hi Bo. I see you're still trotting out the same old lie that the theory of evolution depends upon abiogenesis.
Remember, since your answer to quite literally everything and anything is Godmagic you have zero to criticize anything with.
All we need to do is point out that life is here. That's all we need. Since life is here, evolution remains unaffected. This is why we remain unrefuted.
Is it even scientifically POSSIBLE for you to post without being a hypocrite lest the Earth be swallowed up by a black hole?
The only black hole is the infinite idiocy that you possess. So the beginning of your theory , abiogenesis doesn't work, but according to the Dud it doesn't matter. Life is here! now there's the Dud's scientific mind at work.

Hey Bo, since you're still lying and you know it, you KNOW that God's gonna send you to see the horny little red guy with a pitchfork, right?

Since life is here apparently abiogenesis DOES work, and further, the theory of evolution does not rely on abiogenesis. Just like gravity doesn't rely on the origin of mass.

After all if I'M the idiot, surely you could refute me at least ONCE, right? Just one time? Just one itty bitty teeny weeny ickle time?

That's ANOTHER thing to add to your wishlist for when Jesus comes back.

I saw some theopeds today, in fact. A related new world species with the densest populations found in some western states. In late adolescence the males travel in pairs, develop detachable wheels and take on distinctive markings.(The bottom half is black with white above and a black stripe down the front.)

Wait, creation is an answer to how things started and evolution is an answer to how things change.

I wouldn't care to think about it at the current price for a pair of any shoes kids want. Having kids would be a step many would skip I think. Not to put my foot in it.

No, not anything. But anything within the realm of physics can happen. Even if the odds are slim. Remember that the universe is VAST, therefore somewhere at any given point in time there is SOMETHING occurring that, comparatively speaking, does not happen very often.

Actually Creationism isn't an answer. It gives us a WHO, not a HOW. And it does so without evidence. That's why creationism doesn't make scientific predictions.

That's not to say there definitely is no God. It just means science can't tell because it simply isn't a scientific concept.

Some people have religious objections to reality and don't like the fact that they can only push their baseless religious opinions on their own kids and not everybody else's, so they use politics to get around Constitutional law which prevents them from ruining other people's kids education.

To repeat my point, "if its ancient its not primitive", you are confirming my point. In these ruins like Puma Punka, Baalbeck and others we see construction methods using stone that we the "advanced", cant duplicate. Our buildings are very young in relative age, watch what happens to our skyscrapers when there is an earthquake or a fire.
When you research the origin of such places they cant be explained with our science so the sources are what they are, they doc what they see and report. That's not wrong. The one I used fell into that category. If an author wants to take a guess thats his business and doesn't change the basis of my point concerning the facts. Such places are better explained with a Biblical worldview that is, man was advanced from the beginning, has been interrupted by self-destruction or judgements, and then rebounded in cycles.
Oh no! It's the return of SCP! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

That's funny. So is the Flood story. But so was Piltdown man, and Nebraska Man and Java man. There are crazies on both sides of the fence that make things up to try to support what they follow.
Difference is that on our side we are the ones who falsified those claims. Then creationists lie by saying we STILL use them as examples of evolution even though we were the ones who falsified them, using methods they reject.

We tend to boot out our crazies. Fundies just stay crazy.(shrug)

It still would be a local flood and not a world wide flood. Then you have the ark and other stories that don't add up.
And that's why you are a perfect example of one of the crazies you claim not to be. Piltdown was accepted in ONE country. One. And that was BECAUSE they DIDN'T examine it (because they didn't want to). And Nebraska man wasn't accepted by the scientific community as a whole either.

Show a link or evidence to support your claim. We both know there is no scientific classification for Java man so he cannot be considered a transitional species because they have no clue where he fits in at. Until the java man is just a fossil!
Quite obviously it's a cat.
