After Piltdown<quoted text>
Many Creationist are stuck on the ape. Perhaps man evolved from an ape or some other being. The point is that plants and animals evolve through the process of natural selection and mutation, which is a proven fact. What about horses and donkey producing a mule? Ooops, you didn't think about that did you? What about closely related plants being combined and producing hybrid fruits? What about genetically engineered plants? You have no idea what you are talking about.
