None of his ramblings prove the atheist philosophy :-)
See, that's the thing.,religion is a faith,science is based on facts. I guess you think all those fossils were placed there by the Devil.

Science has a fossil record and carbon dating to verify age....

So if your looking for verifiable proof, your on the wrong side of the argument. You will never be able to drag us down to your level no matter how hard you try.

When you die, you will be a transitional fossil.

The missing link is just a christard/islamotard thing. Science doesn't need it.

broke off from the missing link? uh huh okay. We have found this missing link? Is he related to the Piltdown man? Amazing how gullible people can be. Still waiting for some examples of one species changing into another. By evidence, I mean actual pictures or fairly complete fossils showing this supposed transition. There should be millions so surely you can come up with at least one. Please don't send me a picture of an artistic rendering or on small bone that some "scientist" extrapolated into a being.

science is based on facts? You mean like the Piltdown man? A segment of science has become far too influenced by humanist who have no faith in God and their "science" reflects their obvious bias. Lets face it, you have no proof of any such transitions of one species to another. Its people like you that give science a bad name.

christards just love holding back progress.

Instead of easily debunked crapola, try an actual course given by a university that is open to all. Try your pet theories out on actual scientists.

Here you go:

https://www.coursera.org/course/humanevolutio...

Human Evolution: Past and Future

Introduction to the science of human origins, the fossil and archaeological record, and genetic ancestry of living and ancient human populations. The course emphasizes the ways our evolution touches our lives, including health and diet, and explores how deep history may shape the future of our species.

Not only is it open to all, it's free and conducted on-line through the University of Wisconsin.

Sadly that will not work for Anti. He/she has a conspiracy theory that all scientists are in cohorts to take over the world with their supposed lies and fake research.

"thousands of fossils, mostly fragmentary, often consisting of single bones or isolated teeth with complete skulls and skeletons rare".

Ya I'd say they are rare. So rare they don't even exist. Box these are single bones, isolated teeth, etc. and this is the best you can come up with? A Wikipedia link with bone fragments? Ha.....pretty desperate. There should be millions of trans fossils and there aren't. There are only bone fragments and the rest is left up to human imagination and artistic rendering and you call this science?

Piltdown man was somehow a Christian hoax???? haha...man the desperation here is at an all time high.

Evolution denial as with all science denial, is rooted in psychological illness, namely religion.

Evolution is a fact, so it doesn't matter what you post or think, that's how science works.

You know how campanology works, with change ringing? They just build longer names with the same words but in a different order.

There are millions of possibilities yet still no deliverables.

Even the Catholic Church has agreed that evolution is correct.

Who cares what Catholics believe? I don't. The bible clearly states the view on creation. If Catholics don't agree with the word of God then they shouldn't even consider themselves believers.
And as it plainly commands in the Bible, all non-believers must be burned.
Clearly we need to start burning Catholics again to be right with God.

EVERYTHING EVOLVES. How about Judism evolving into Catholithism evolving into Protestantism
