Have you read the MATRIX?
If not where are your manners or where is your Moral in reading ?
Do you keep your Bible on the coffee table? Sure it is an interesting conversation peace of
Informative info?
What's your favorite chapter and verse and how does it help you in the daily routine and so if you have none how does it serve?
I don't just display my Bible for show, I keep it to read and learn from. My favorite verse is JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Over the last few days of posting, you've demonstrated a total lack of regard for punctuation, yet you chose to use quotes around 'Prove'.
So you're selective in punctuation as well?
For the last time this is a discussion about evolution and creationism not literature and
grammar at least you can understand the basis of what im saying so stop being such a grammar nazi

Single animals don't change into new species. But populations of animals (and plants, by the way) will change into a population of a different species over time and in the right circumstances.
Here are a couple of basic facts:
1. There were no humans on Earth 5 million years ago.
2. There are humans on Earth now.
3. There were species of apes around 5 million years ago.
4. Biologically, humans are a type of ape.
5. The species of ape around 5 million years ago were not around 2.5 million years ago and are not around today.
6. Some of the species of ape around 2.5 million years ago were more similar to humans than any around 5 million years ago.
7. The species around 1 million years ago were different than those around 2.5 million years go and are also not around today.
8. Some of the species around 1 million years ago were more similar to humans than any around 2.5 million years ago. But there were still no humans around 1 million years ago.
9. The same things can be said about gorillas: no gorillas were around 5 million years ago; there were species around 2.5 million years ago that were more similar to gorillas than any around 5 million years ago. And there were species around 1 million years ago that were more similar to modern gorillas than any around 2.5 million years ago.
10. A half a million years ago, there were no modern humans. But there were species that were more similar to humans than any that were around 2.5 million years ago.
11. About 100,000 years ago, there were anatomically modern humans.
Now, what exactly can you conclude from these facts? The most obvious and supported answer is that modern humans evolved from apes that lived 5 million years ago, that changed over time, sometimes splitting into new species. The same can be said of *all* modern species.
The same types of things can be said about, say, horses, or oxen, or camels, or any other species you care to mention. That is why we say that species evolve over time.
Oh ok but we can never observe that right so it kinda stands that evolution is bs

Don't forget that worldwide most Christians accept the theory of evolution. They know that the book of Genesis is a myth. The only first world country with significant population that believes the creation myth is the U.S..
Creation isn't a myth and without genesis being truthful the rest of the bible would also end up being wrong which it isn't so these so called christians aren't actually christians as they have nothing from their view to base their religion upon and I'm Canadian

Your beliefs don't matter.
But more fingers change you. Your dad might have four fingers while you have five. That makes you quite different. Or you could have a child with six fingers.
Or you may have been born with a mutation that allows you to digest something that didn't exist before 1933.
More information.
<quoted text>
No, humans stay hominids. Hominids stay primates. Primates stay mammals. Mammals stay chordates. Chordates stay animals.
But life STILL changes over time.
In apes for example (humans are a species of ape by the way) millions of years ago they had smaller craniums, more prominent facial features and stooped posture. Gradually they walked more upright, their faces flattened and their skull cavities got larger.
Just small changes over time which eventually mount up.
But these small changes don't add up to make something new and extraordinary the fingers are still fingers and what you described is a useful mutation nothing else that person would still be a person not something else

Actually they can't, since God is not in the Bible. Even if such a thing does exist.
Fact is the Bible is the works of an ancient peoples who sought to control a gullible populous by the least amount of effort necessary. They succeeded.
um God is in the bible and these ancient peoples some of them where there and others were told through God and there was many of them through many hundreds of years who wrote books of the bible and all the books are connected

Well, I'm not picking on your grammar skills, it's just an observation that since you quoted one word to emphasize irony, you obviously have enough knowledge to use punctuation. But since you choose not to it shows you're lazy, and that explains quite a bit. That's all.

You haven't the faintest idea of what has been observed. So why don't you go get an education then come back when you have some idea of what your talking about.
