I assume you studied drosophila at school? Fruit flies are a great genetic study aid.

I heard Sarah Palin laughing about science laughing, "I kid you not, there are scientists studying fruit flies in Paris, France"... and I was left speechless how someone as retarded as her can be so pleased with her own idiocy. Actually, when I say speechless, I meant I called her a c**t.

antiatheist is very similar.

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.

Dr. Morris probably is smarter than any of us when it comes to fluid dynamics. That doesn't make him any more authoritative on the validity of evolution than some guy down at the end of the bar. Doctoral degrees are degrees * in * a particular topic because the person studied that topic with a great deal of focus. Usually, to the exclusion of studying much in unrelated fields. Outside their particular field, holders of doctorates are generally not better informed than other members of the general public. The opinion of a doctor of fluid mechanics on evolution is no more authoritative than the opinion of someone with a doctorate in renaissance literature. A doctorate degree is not a general certificate that everything one says on any topic under the sun should automatically be accorded weight. One certainly needs a fair degree of intelligence to earn a doctorate, but most use that intelligence to avoid making bold pronouncements about fields quite divergent from their own.

He won't even acknowledge being asked the question. If he doesn't accept evolution, and believes all creation took place in 6 days 6,000 years ago, he has no possible explanation for the appearance of new bacterial strains. If they weren't created and didn't evolve, where did they come from?

Does this mean if I give you a study done by a Ph.D. in the field of biology then you will accept it?

Let me guess. You found a microbiologist whose dissertation was on major polyamines in Chryseobacterium indologenes, and that's your expert witness on evolution, right?

I will consider studies done by people with relevant credentials, and will consider them in the light of the number of other studies on the same topic. If your article is supported by the weight of opinion in the field, that's one thing. If it is an outlier claiming "I'm right and all those other scientists are wrong", that's something else again.

Good luck on finding a properly credentialed biologist who doesn't believe in evolution. Maybe when you find a talking snake, you can ask for directions.

antiatheist is too retarded to understand we expect "evidence" to be peer reviewed.

lol figured. You are all alike. You claim you want evidence, yet what you really want is evidence that you think supports what you already believe. You are a joke

Atheist trolls dish it out but can not take it.

No proof of their religion, philosophy or their "what ever" and they get rather defensive.

Dawkins became an agnostic and they are in a lather :-)

No, he is not smarter, he's just learned the art of appealing to people like you.
Oh look another 'Justaminute' aka Karen Janbaz of OKC post only this time she is using different sock puppet at the moment "Agnostic".....

So you looked something up on Wikipedia...bravo...but you claim you have an accounting degree but have so much trouble with basic math, LOL.

Fake, pretender, liar and village idiot so you have some hope misrepresenting and lying I'm sure those skills help your work for the Obama Project.
