Only 6000 years ago (this month), no problem. Just go to some archaeological dig excavating that period and voila, bones, teeth, partial and complete skeletons etc. Closer to the coast you will also find shells.

Although in some animals evolutional change can be seen in action (and is being studied), the majority have found their niche with little environmental pressure to push evolutionary change.

The same applies to humans, little change over the last 8 or 9 thousand years but further back in time cro magnon man (before the babble book) had a denser bone structure and larger skull,(indicating larger brain). That did not make them any less homo sapiens, just as you and every other human on this rock.

Running around naked is fine. Just remember if you rape her, you marry her.

You see what you want to see....it's called delusions. Neither BB or evilution are facts. You also believe what you want to believe with no records to back it.

You don't really know how God created the world and universe, so you take evidence and twist it to conform to multiple assorted lies you deem fit to adhere to in support of your lying agenda.

It's kind of pathetic how you creationists love to lie about science to so much. Perhaps it part of your mental illness.

The magnet is an idol. It is the force creating the magnet.

Your ENTIRE interaction with ANYTHING of a physical nature, and your conscious thinking, is via strictly what physics calls the EM force.

You can't touch a proton, you can't touch gravity. But they are anchors for you to exercise your EM forces.

Less than a fraction of one percent of the observable matter is "EM neutral". Not my guess, a scientific pronouncement. You are amongst that "EM neutral" matter. That neutrality is disturbed by that other 99% not neutral, and gravity, and actions/reactions are set into motion on the physical level. Your ability to act and react is dictated by forces much greater than yourself. You just like to "think" you are self initiating.

You're really not far off from an Inquisition with water boarding here. Maybe the wheels on the wheelchair can be used for the submersion.

It seems that you can take the church out of the Middle Ages, but you can't take the Medieval out of the church.

Our DNA is closer to apes than any other species. This is evidence. Proof is in the eye of the beholder.

You know it really only matters to scientists and theists. For all I know, it's only 19 1/2 years old. The only thing I heard in the last hour was the sound that came from my violin. When I play, the universe stands still as far as I know.
