I'd settle for ANY, as long as it's independently verifiable.
But you go ahead and make up whatever apologetic excuse you need to maintain your delusions.
Evolution has never been independently verified. When a scientific premise is flawed to begin with, entire fields of study based on that premise end up to be conclusively wrong.

Atheists are sadists. You only have to read Hitler's utterly incoherent neo-Darwinian ravings and remember his death camps to comprehend just how low atheistic immorality can go.

The point is, sadism can't be assigned to specific gods or cultures when you can find examples of it everywhere.

All you loons are simple bigots. Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.
You don't have a position, you just have an assertion.

Hitler never renounced his Catholicism and actually mentions God several times in Mein Kampf. Not to mention the Nazi soldiers, who were mostly Catholic and Lutheran, who went to war with "Gott mit uns" on their belts.

Idiot.

Yes it has, Cretinist. Every time some scientist does radioactive dating or something like that, it corroborates something else. It's pretty much THE basic theory that ties life sciences together. I'd rather trust a paleontologist who got his Ph.D. from MIT or CalTech than some idiot on the Internet who doesn't know squat about real science.

Considering you think Adolf got his ideas from Darwin, all your assertions on the subject are irrelevant.

150 year of independent verification by researchers all over the world from all religious backgrounds and all socio-political environments.

Sorry you apparently don't know enough about it to understand, but that's your problem.

Baylor University, one of the finest Christians Universities in the World --

"Evolution, a foundational principle of modern biology, is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence and is accepted by the vast majority of scientists. Because it is fundamental to the understanding of modern biology, the faculty in the Biology Department at Baylor University, Waco, TX, teach evolution throughout the biology curriculum. We are in accordance with the American Association for Advancement of Science's statement on evolution. We are a science department, so we do not teach alternative hypotheses or philosophically deduced theories that cannot be tested rigorously."

Is renouncement a prerequistie in the atheist's handbook of proper protocol?

While Hitler may have professed his faith publically, his private writings said something else. He was diabolical enough to use religion as a means of control.

"National Socialism and religion cannot exist together.... The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity.... Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things."

A Hitler Youth marching song (Grunberger, A Social History):
"We follow not Christ, but Horst Wessel, Away with incense and Holy Water, The Church can go hang for all we care, The Swastika brings salvation on Earth."

Good question! Kitten routinely confuses mutations and adaptation within a species with evolution. There is much debate in science in fact about what constitutes a species and what is sufficient in experiments to demonstrate evolution.

The evolutionary evidence presented to date regarding her list of creatures is at best inconclusive. The fruit fly however is the perfect test subject because of its short life span and four pairs of chromosomes. Despite experiments and a hundred years of opportunity, no evidence of evolution has been demonstrated.

The radioactive method of dating is unreliable because of sample contamination and unpredictable changes in the decay rate.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 62,960 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

You mean evolved from what for most of them. The original fruit that was the "banana," forget the name of it, was full of seed, inedible to humans, we picked the ones with fewer seeds and planted those, now they have no seeds in the fruit itself. It evolved.

Fruit flies have been evolved, guided of course, in a lab to become new species of fruit flies. Some that were so different they even looked different.

Cows are another that we picked the ones we liked and set the originals free, until they became cows. Their four stomachs is a result of us picking wrong, though they are tastier than yaks now.

Yellow corn is more edible than the others, and the most recent one we guided purposefully, buy planting only those with the most yellow in them we eventually created all yellow corn, several varieties even.

MRSA was originally Staphylococcus, we calle it MRSA because the bacteria is still similar, but with bacteria and viruses, if we named every single species with unique names, we'd lose count of the names, so we recycle them.

AIDS was Simian AIDS before the human version existed, and that's not even the first AIDS to exist, it's been through several species, and each time one evolves to infect a new species, it becomes a new species itself.

Anymore stupid questions?
