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.
Broken record, we have gone over this AT GREAT LEGNTH!

You ask question after question then bitch when you dont like the scientifically backed answers. YET YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER ANY OF OUR QUESTIONS

WHERE ARE YOUR MILLIONS OF EXAMPLES THAT GOD EXISTS OR THAT RELIGION IS ANYTHING MORE THAN AN ANCIENT SUPERSTITION?

You are free to refute the evidence provided to you.

you can't provide proof angel so you start questioning me? Wheres your millions of trans fossils?? Can't answer that one I know.

Box are you simply not reading my posts? I already explained to you that single bones and teeth don't prove squat. So try again. Show me where one species turned into another and where is this missing link?

man I sure get tired having to educate so many of you all the time. 80% believe in God and only 3% categorize themselves as atheists. Others see themselves as agnostic, etc. Comprende? Atheists are a tiny group of crazies.
Atheism is a lack of belief in god or gods. People who do not believe in god are, by virtue of that fact alone, atheists, by definition. If 20% of the population do not believe in god, then 20% of the population is atheist, regardless of what label the apply to it.

Explain penicillin resistant bacteria strains without resort to explanations that involve evolution. Is this another "goddidit"? Did your benevolent god who loves us so much decide that too many people were escaping suffering with antibiotics, so he created new forms of bacteria that were resistant to antibiotics to put a stop to all that non-suffering? You have to admit, evolution is a much more intelligent and coherent explanation that a sulking sky-man for the emergence of new strains of bacteria.

If you had actually gone to my links, you'd see that we're not talking about single bones or teeth. We have many hominid skulls and bodies.

Oh but I did go to your links. I copy and pasted a direct quote from the site if you bothered to read.

Its also funny you want me to accept your sources yet when I give a source there is no way you will accept it. You cry "give me evidence" but when faced with evidence you question the source. Its the same ole song and dance by you guys.

amused let me educate you one more time. Atheists say there is no God. Which is dumb in itself because there is no possible way you could know that. The remainder of the 20% doesn't make a decision either way. Sorry Charlie, face the fact that you are part of a 3% wacko group.

Don't waste your time with this idiot. What he's looking for is a fossil of a Centaur or a 1/2 fish 1/2 wombat... basically what he thinks a transitional fossil should be based on his vast ignorance of science.

He's just here to try and out-stupid the other creationist trolls... and he's doing a good job of it

You're lying. Simply scrolling down the page, you'd see skulls and even nearly complete skeletons. Not single bones and teeth.

are you not able to show any fossils that indicate a transition from one species into another? Of course you aren't yet that is what you expect people to believe. Hard to understand why so many of you put complete faith in something that is far from proven.

I'm not talking about species evolving. Change is a fact of life and nobody is denying that. However, what you want us to believe is that species change from one to another. If this were true, there would be millions of fossils showing this transition. There are none. Major problem for you although I know you won't admit it.

I gave you a link showing that scientists have SEEN new species arise. In labs. In nature.

But if fossils specifically is what you're looking for, tell me this: what kinds of fossils would convince you that a transition between species had occurred?

well its really hard to take that seriously when they list "Lucy" as one of their examples. Wasn't this supposed to be the missing link? Ha...just another human skull or ape skull but no transitional skull. This one was debunked just like the Piltdown many and several others. I'm sure we'll all hear about the next greatest find on CNN soon.

I'm lying??? Ha....then your article must be lying because this is a direct quote.

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

Pretty good article written by a Ph.D. that is probably smarter than all of you put together. I'll be waiting for all the crying about how this is not a good source yadda yadda yadda. Some of you will probably even wet your pants.

Morris has a degree in fluid mechanical engineering not in one of the life sciences and he also argues that the earth is just 6,000 years old. You know the ones that say Adam and Eve rode around on dinosaurs.

No, he is not smarter, he's just learned the art of appealing to people like you.

And the Michelle Bachmanns and S Palins to mention just a few religious cranks.

Objectively it has to be said that there's no evidence of any Abrahamic god(s), nor any of these:

I suspect that when you are more clearly in the minority you'll follow the herd, AA, by the sound of it. You certainly can't justify any religious beliefs or anti-atheist bias.
