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.

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

It says that in the bible? Holy crap! I guess that proves it. After all the bible is true because the bible says its true. Putz.

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.

We can observe in retrospective , and the power or deduction in this way is POWERFUL and a tool especially when combined with the mutation calculations such as molecular clockwork'.. and fossil evidence to accurately paint a picture of the history of humanity, and all creatures related.

http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evosite/evo101/...

We can see things not so painfully obvious as preschool cognitive abilities can identify at a glance. We also know, and YES we do indeed KNOW , exclamation point! Know.
Beyond the simpletons mind and all your objections to this knowledge as to these determinations of the history of Humans and their predecessors, and all life on Earth in general. Is a scope laid down in HARD science with evidence ill-refutable and determined long ago as axioms of science.

Refusal to acknowledge these things does not help you qualify any correspondence, or help you appear to be on the same page with the professors of knowledge , and will not gain you any advance in academic or intellectual value.

But will indeed further sink you in ostracization with the feeble minded and religiously retarded people you so belong with.

Well, you didn't get the analogy so what do you expect? And it was VERY simple.

BTW, congratulations. You only spelled three words wrong in that one sentence.

Is that how it reads ? Does it say my only begotten SON JESUS?
