Are you really that stupid. "New World" DNA cannot occur naturally, it comes from evolved DNA, primitive or "Old World" DNA, and is the result of natural selection.

Wrong. Blue and green are rather vague concepts, so there is certainly NOT a single point where things are blue on one side and green on the other.
Say you are ten feet from a brick wall and every second to move half way to the wall. When do to touch the wall?
We aren't talking about walls or Zeno's paradoxes. We are talking about things like species and colors which have fuzzy boundaries.

That's not to say an actual line is not there. It just that no one is willing to draw it. There is a point where one kind is not the same as its parents on a evolution time line to say.

But it must have, for us to be here right?
Some where in nature new DNA was getting created all over the place for all those different life forms that once lived and live today both plant and animal to have evolved from one life source.
Gah, you really are stupid. Did you only read part of what I posted and ran with it? Finish reading it, it was one of my shorter posts too. Lazy bum.

Nope, that's 7d1c51, or in other words, 125 red, 28 green, and 81 blue. Each number is out of 255.

Isn't it sad that believers work so hard to remain enslaved to delusion and superstition? I supposed they are comforted by those chains that bind them.

Silly sheep scared to jump that tiny fence to freedom.

That seems rather arbitrary to me. Why that particular word and not the one before or after it?

Lol! And this system is what they call enlightenment?!

And your hero Richard Dawkins is somehow different? His militant attitude, monotone emotionless visage, and relentless self-promotion makes him the Osama bin Laden of atheism.

You do realise that Dawkins has a christmas tree and wishes people "Merry christmas" whereas when I'm in the US I often hear christians saying all this mealy mouthed "happy holidays" BS?

Grow up.
