Who asked for your explanations?
All the relevant world science organizations agree that the world is warming fast and humans have a hand in it.
Yeah and there is big bucks in it. Create a problem out of thin air and then declare you have the solution, for a price, that is.
The deniers (like YOU apparently) are in the pay of the oil companies or working some other agenda.
What agenda is that? Oil companies my ass. Live without oil.
And by far the most common way in our society that the "process of science is corrupted when it is turned into a platform for political and social issues" is when Christians like you politicize science in order to gain bandwidth and media time for discussion of your Bible beliefs.
Hey you brought up the Bible dillweed, not me.

Cvcksvker, the only people who "don't believe" in evolution and the Big Bang are you and your Jesus Freak compatriots. And it all points back to your BuyBull, doesn't it?

Seriously we are in a third world status (to some that has fallen at their feet) Religion still uses children too, in more than one way... Some they wouldn't want to be treated by no one anymore here Doctors Authorities??? Who the freak knows what made them specialists in their field and the best of the the best? Who all is that for, seems it's all almost reachable? As to there can one re-cline that world or what?
How is that done?

Those always having to be content...

So seems some places have a lot at/in check but then not a thing..is that crazy or what?

Evolution shows how new species are created by a process of natural selection and drift operating on mutations in a changing environment.

it assumes that the universe already exists, and assumes that life already exists, and makes no claims regarding the manner in which either came to be. But look around you Charles, they exist.

I notice that none of you guys demand that the theories of gravitation demand an explanation for how matter got here in the first place. You only apply this double standard to evolution.

Feel free to claim that God authored the Big Bang. Nobody can argue with that, for the time being.

Mythology will argue that God wasn't before the bang...Also God for the people and there was an Ares placed to watch over God and the people...He was a KIng...so what is God really? I still say it's nothing but a machine...

You are not "part ape".

You are "one hundred percent ape."

Are you part "mammal"? Or are you a mammal? Are you "part vertebrate" or are you a vertebrate? If you have at least half of a brain you should know that you are a vertebrate and you are a mammal. By the same logic you are an ape.

And not only are you one hundred percent ape, you are also technically a monkey. Here is a short video by a biologist that can explain it to you in fairly simple terms:

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.

You can try that if you like, but if the apes don't tear you to bits. You will get a free stay atb the top floor of the nearest hospital, where they will try to understand wtf is wrong with you.

Just to clarify your position, humans are the descendants of hominids.
While these hominids were ape like and called the "great apes" they gave rise to but humans and modern apes, so apes in the modern sense are our cousins and not directly related to to us from a parental lineage the way you think we are saying.

But if you look at the hominids we are directly related to , and all hominids in general.
It becomes clear that they were very "ape like" and scientifically we class all hominids as primates and primates are apes.

hominid

Definition of HOMINID
: any of a family (Hominidae) of erect bipedal primate mammals that includes recent humans together with extinct ancestral and related forms and in some recent classifications the gorilla, chimpanzee, and orangutan

But we are more than just apes my friend, we exclusively of all apes can call ourselves "human" ....a thing reserved to the homo line.

You could try. And we would probably have a fun time watching you get what you deserve. The problem is that we are too far separated genetically from our ape relatives for this to be successful, even if she (or he) didn't kill you. Just as no cat that you have owned could ever impregnate a lion you cannot impregnate an ape. Yet creationists can see that cats are cats whether big or small. For some reason they can't see that people are apes.

Did you even bother to watch the video that I linked for you? Probably not. You are happy as a pig in shit wallowing in its own filth, except your filth is your own self imposed ignorance.
