Evolution has a very broad meaning and it’s certainly applicable in micro biology.
And even in advanced species we know that evolution has been a factor like for example in the varying K-9 breeds in the last 200 years.
But some species have not changed such as the horseshoe crab in 500 million years. In that kind of time frame horseshoe crabs should be driving jet skis by now.
There’s a lot of speculation on many individual species by evolutionist because there’s not sufficient evidence outside of speculation.
I for one don’t believe mankind evolved from primates. Now I’ve seen a hell of a lot of artist conceptions but nothing in real tangible solid evidence. I just don’t see it at all.
Nor do I believe whales evolved from four legged hoofed animals. It's a freaking joke.
You will notice that evolutionary science is the only science that if you don’t believe it whole heartedly by swallowing hook, line and sinker. They want to bash your head into the wall. That kind of reaction in itself makes me suspicious.
So in conclusion some evolution is a fact and some evolution is just speculation.
More creationist sloping shoulders... Macro evolution is simply lots of micro evolution, proven fact. Get over it and educate yourself.

Why should horseshoe crabs be anything more than they have adapted to be? I’ll tell you why, because such specious arguments are all creatards have.

And science is studying the evolution of individual species to remedy that lack of understanding. However on the general level evolution is a proven fact and what you ‘for one believe or not’ is of no consequence.

I too have seen a lot of art, artefacts, fossils etc that are real... it is my hobby, hence my avatar which you essentially have just said does not exist (I assure you it does, I was on the team who discovered it) but I suppose such factual evidence would be beyond you – for one.

Wales... why is it a joke, you think it’s funny,. You should try looking at the babble and god doing it with magic from nothing – yes, read and more to the point...understand the babble for a real good laugh. Back to DNA... Hippos (4 legged animals) are the closest animal genetically to whales. There is fossil evidence also helps justify it. However what you have is faith that it is not so, no evidence is going to convince you because of personal belief and incredulity.

Only science, how about cosmology? How about history? How about anthropology? How about...

Honey, anything (science or otherwise) that you are unwilling to understand that proves you godbook to be at the least, specious you reject out of hand and bash you head against a wall.

I don’t believe Bill and Melinda Gates created a consortium to represent every Atheist and Agnostic in the world. These are just two individuals that were not elected to represent unbelievers in the Charitable Contributions of the World Wide Atheist/Agnostics Federation.
But every Atheist/Agnostic tag along and claim Bill and Melinda’s charitable contributions as their own. What a freaking joke. He and Melinda gave representing the “Gates,” family as individuals and no one else.
Just off the top of my head, the American Red Cross is not a religious charity nor is Doctors without Borders, and most of your food banks are not considered a religious charity.
I give to the food bank all the time, and other I know also donate.

Just because your trailer has screens on the windows don't mean you are better than most of these Christians here.

Whichever church utilizes the "holy bible" as it's reference for their religion. Would that happen to be yours?

So you agree there's a lot of evil sh!t in your bible that simply shouldn't be there. You say churches ignore that evil sh!t.

But other christian posters tell me the bible is perfect. Are you wrong or are they?

Numbers 31:17-18King James Version (KJV)
17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

Deuteronomy 20:13-14King James Version (KJV)
13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:
14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

Deuteronomy 21:10-13King James Version (KJV)
10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive,
11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;
12 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;
13 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.

Judges 21:10-12King James Version (KJV)
10 And the congregation sent thither twelve thousand men of the valiantest, and commanded them, saying, Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children.
11 And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man.
12 And they found among the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead four hundred young virgins, that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.

I appreciate a God who spared nothing, not even His only Son to redeem a corrupted race of people who were initially created in His image to be His own family.

YOU, sir, are choosing to side with His arch nemesis, taking a position of accusing Him of wrong-doing rather than delighting in His mercy and grace through Christ!

Topix Atheist are not objective. And most can’t handle a honest debate. Even with that consideration I enjoy engaging them.
Anytime you pit honesty against untruth the untruth goes awry every time. They’re predictable and often revert to personal insults. Because they know their position is false and is propped by deceit.
tru dat!

Your devil story is retarded.

If your god was all powerful it would have already defeated the devil in the past.
