Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Remember as a kid those ABC building blocks?
Take all 26 letters and putting them in a large bag and shake them up. Then toss them out onto the floor.
What are the chances these letters will self assemble into complex words lined up from one end to the other in a orderly fashion?
Those blocks are inert. The molecules of life are not. HUGE difference.

One effect of Evolution is that not all combinations are equally likely or possible.

You donít believe there was a first man and woman?
How could there not be a first?
1) Changes from one generation to the next are small, but cumulative. So no individual is significantly different than their parents.

2) The line dividing 'non-human' and 'human' is broad and fuzzy. Even if the ends are clearly non-human or clearly human, it isn't easy to classify those in the transition stages.

3) Changes occur in populations not individuals. There were typically thousands of individuals at any given time, all of which were similar biologically.

These together make the concept of a 'first human' silly. At any stage there was a population of similar individuals. That population changes over generations, accumulating small changes from one generation to the next. At the beginning of the transition, all the individuals in the population are non-human, and at the end they are all human, but at any given stage, the classification is arbitrary.

If this chromosome fusion is true it should be tested. Scientist can fuse chromosome 2 in a primate then that primate would give birth to a human. But I have heard of no such experiments.

I doubt such an experiment would be run for ethical reasons.

That couldn't work. You'd only have a fused Chromosome of Ape (chimp, gorilla, whichever you used) genes.
In addition to fusing the chromosomes, you'd also have to replace all the genes with human genes and all the non-coding sections with human non-coding sections. That's probably impossible. But if you successfully replaced the ape DNA in its entirety with human DNA, then you'd have a human.
If that's not impossible, it's a lot more difficult than simply cloning a human (also full or problems, many of them ethical). If I was the researcher doing it, I would take the cell you wanted me to transform into a human cell, dump it in the garbage and find a human cell. There, replaced!
Exactly.

You do realize that was far from being the *only* change in going from non-humans to humans. Yes, it was a significant one, but there are many other genes that changed also.

Why to demonstrate you don't understand anything scientific.

Are you really that simple? I know that there are really stupid people out there who believe crap like that, but you claim to be educated.

No matter how many times you are told, evolution from one species to another, takes millions of years, you still demand overnight magic.

Religion claims instant magic, not science.

Did I say I has any of these? No all videos and pictures of consenting adults are free for all consenting adults.

You going to stop making excuses and accept the bet?

I can explain the business to you, how you get and update content, advertise and make a profit. You will have to pay me but I can help you or anyone get started.

My neighbor is a detective and she is a cutie! Her and her husband have had dinner with us before. I hate to tell you and Dave but adult websites are legal.

Eventually the Federal Investigators will make their case. You do realize that your probably being watched by the Police. One little slip up and itís the cell block for you cowboy. Not only do they charge you for the crimes they also take the money made.
The Feds like to do these things in campaigns. Where they take down several hundred at a time. Unannounced they crash in your door wearing assault equipment. Before you can wake up your in cuffs in the back seat of a police cruiser.
You just go on thinking your immune.

If you actually took the time to write that up yourself, I would be flattered you did such, and displayed and expended some intellect in doing so.
Such is highly unlikely. I think your talents are limited to cutting and pasting the thoughts of others.
But you forgot the eeyuk, eeyuk, giggle, and snort at the end.
David, you are unworthy of anything other than copy/paste as you have allowed your entire existence to be copy/pasted in advance for you by religious dogma.

Until the highly unlikely event you gain some serious knowledge, you are forever doomed to the abyss of self imposed ignorance.

If you spent 10% of your time trying to find WHY there are non believers, you might have a modicum of understanding, as it happens, all you have is hatred.
