The Cincinnati Zoo called and wanted to say that what you were doing with those gorillas is never going to result in a conception. They also said you can keep the banana.

You can't do that. I DO welcome you trying, however. I doubt you could get a different species of ape to mate with you. They would consider you too dumb and ugly to mate with.

Do you understand that Ape is a broader category than a species?

Never mind. Look who I am asking.

Let me get this straight, you are claiming to know what life on earth was like 2-3 Million Years ago?

Yes. Very much. We have the fossil and DNA records of living things back much longer than that.

I understand there are theories and best educated guesses on the limited information we have but seriously that is pretty stupid to make assertions.

You don't understand what a theory is.

What I don't understand is why someone so blitheringly ignorant of science as yourself, would choose to embarrass himself by making his ignorant public.

At least you openly admit your idiocy.

Make sure you choose one of the apes outside the cages, looking in.

It's an interesting video , but it makes emphasis on a point or snapshot in evolutionary history that by his own reasoning fails in logic.
Because technically we can go back further and make emphasis on a earlier branch.
So humans are tetra-pods or are we fish maybe just eukaryote, we are microbial , I am LUCA.
So for clarity we have to look at LCA's to define what we are. It makes little sense to call an eagle a theropod , or a human a monkey. Our LCA is hominini and that puts us cousins to chimps and therefore apes.
Really, since we can chase our classification all the way up the nested hierarchy to the root and it makes sense at every level depending on the context, why not?. We are hominids are apes are monkeys are primates are placental mammals are mammals are vertebrates are eukaryotes, each fully and equally...

If we're the ones who are stupid then how come you can't refute us?

And why do you claim Piltdown to be fake when it was found to be fake using evolutionary science that you reject?

The Obama administration and liberal politicians in general seem to promote climate change fiction in order to gain even more dominance over our lives. Apparently controlling one-sixth of the economy through Obamacare isn't enough for them.
Most of the "reporting" on the subject is decidedly one-sided, including President Obama's claim in his last State of the Union address that "The debate is settled. Climate change is a fact." Science is never settled, or it wouldn't be science. It is constantly testing, probing and searching for new information. That's why science textbooks are regularly revised as new discoveries are made.
Uh, yeah, science is a big liberal conspiracy that only allows certain facts to be presented which is why they have to update textbooks all the time and you came here to tell us this using your computer.

You're one big massive walking contradiction, ain'cha bub?

Never said evolution is evil. I said it it impossible to prove scientifically
It is easily demonstrated empirically via the scientific method, and you were shown how. So far you have not been able to refute it.

Neither has anyone else on the entire planet.

There's a REASON for that.
SevenTee wrote:
and it useless fodder for heathens to try to debunk Christianity.
Literalistic Creationism was debunked centuries ago. As for theism in general that can't be debunked scientifically because it's irrelevant to science. Evolution is only affected by these in the political arena because uneducated idiots hate biology and want to ruin science education for everybody else. You support this uneducated movement.

Actually I do. You don't. Otherwise you would have presented a rational coherent rebuttal by now. You can't. All you can do is be sarcastic and lie a lot. That's the best your side has.

I may agree somewhat but for the sake of clarity.
If you want to define something clearly it becomes muddled.
Yes if you look at the genome we can see a pathway, but to pinpoint what we are, you have to look at the sprout , to define what we were made of, the roots.
If you skip the sprout, you could be talking about something else altogether.
Because of this we aren't monkeys at all, though we are made of some of the same stuff.
Otherwise rocket ships become wheels, if that makes any sense to you.

Science?
Yet science can not give us the real evidence of how the universe started. So, rephrase your statement. The answer is, no one knows.
