Nothing "decides." If you survive, you might pass on your genes. If you don't survive, you don't.

Yea, I understand that evolution requires time. I'm simply stating that the fossil record does not support life evolving from a common ancestor. Each fossil found is unique to its own kind no matter if it's a bird, mammal, fish, etc. Nothing is found to suggest any kind of cross-over from one common ancestor to another species to another species and so on. Why evolutionists believe otherwise is beyond science itself. The fossil record proves evolution to contain many major holes.
What "kind" are trilobites?

Okay...let me clarify, not full evolvement...but from point A to present...but I disagree...not everything is a transitional fossil...EVERYTHING is a BIG word. Lol..just being picky for the sake of argument...
Ok.

Okay, so they aren't our ancestors. I concur. I was using the Neanderthal example because science sees the skulls of the Neanderthal as not only a transitional fossil but one of the many missing links. Take the Neanderthal fossils, who is not our ancestor, totally out of the picture, and how does that effect the scientic theory of evolution as it relates to mankind?
It doesn't.

No that is not what I'm telling you at all. I'm talking about one discovery. If Dubois' discovery doesn't hold water, and we really can't definitively say it does because rickets may have accounted for the shape and size of the skulls...So let's, for the sake of argument remove those transitional fossils from history and what does that do for the theory as a whole? Similar characteristics means nothing to me. Humans share similar characteristics with countless other species...that doesn't mean we evolved from them or they evolved from us.
His discovery does hold water. The "controversy" is made up by creationists. His qualifications don't matter, what he found is what he found. His interpretations don't even really matter, because the fossil itself is available for other scientists to examine and confirm.

Removing transitional fossils does nothing. It removes the "sexy" aspect of evolution that holds a lot of popular appeal. All the proof we need for common descent is found in our DNA. This is ignoring all the other lines of evidence.

Oh it could well be a transitional fossil...but there is absolutely no truth or definitive evidence to factually state that it a transitional fossil from ape to man, which is exactly what science wants us to believe. He said it belonged to a genus allied with a gibbon...to assume this is a missing link between ape and man, again is a stretch, but science throws that discovery right in the mix, because they need it to fill a gap.
How do you define "proof?" It is a skull that is clearly hominid in shape, having a large brain case, but still retaining some ape like characteristics. That's as good as it gets.

It isn't just MY conception on Java Man...there is widespread controversy regarding Dubois' find in Java. For Pete's sake! Dubois didn't even have formal training in geology or paleontology. He wasn't even qualified to determine the date and location of geological deposits in Java. After finding "java man" he changed the date to Tertiary to support the claim that the specimen was primitive. I think it's fairly safe to question any of his work on Java man. Also, I don't dispute evolution...I am disputing the Darwinian theory of the evolution of man...there is a significant difference.
There is widespread controversy in creationist circles. That is not relevant.

Well it is pointless of you expecting people on here to explain things when we have such great information at our finger tips. People on here aren't locked up in labs living their life for their work. Some can pop out answers to questions but most can't. I find when an explanation is given it is often rejected.
Though if you go and search the info it is all there. They tell you exactly what there missing, where they expect to find it, why they haven't yet.
To all those who keep saying it's all a lie. Look the word lie up for a start. If someone has something wrong it isn't a lie, they just got it wrong. Can you imagine scientists from all over the world continuing such a lie? and if some just got it wrong, there's all those other's on there tales, checking, correcting if needed, re-checking, debating, All the people out there in the field millions of them working on these issues.
People thinking we have only been here 5 or 10 thousand years. I am very uneducated but just walking around rocks and beaches, just sitting and watching the natural world should tell you it is impossible for that to be true.

All living organisms are transitional forms, thus all fossils are transitional fossils. Mechanical objects are not fossils.

Yes, everything is. The problem is you are conceptualizing evolution as having a "goal" or a specific form it is striving towards. That's not how it works. Every species becomes the transitional form of some future species. We are the transitional form of future hominids.

(to remove bias and ''human'' error?) Wow, so you really think ''science'' can have no human error?

rotflmao....

No dimwit. Telling you that scientist of evolution have a bias against creationist..

Tell us, what would happen to all the jobs of the scientist who are studying evolution and transitional fossils, fish to bird, ape to man, etc etc,,, IF they were to admitt God created this world???

Oh, and here is you a fast way to make $10,000... since you think ''science'' can remove human error...lolol

I didn't say it removes it completely, I said that is it's purpose, and it does a very good job of keeping people honest.

Why would they admit god created the world? There is no evidence for it. And again, why do you set up religion so as to be diametrically opposed to science? If we accept a creator, does that mean we have to stop searching for knowledge? That shows how you think. God is a free pass for you to turn off your brain.

Did you really link to glenn beck's site? After a cursory examination of the "challenge," it appears this guy wants someone to prove creation didn't happen. As we all (should) know, it is impossible to prove a negative. Stop being stupid. You fell for a publicity stunt.

The scientific method does remove bias, the Catholic church developed it just for that reason. Many times the Genesis fable has been demonstrated incorrect, but your creationist dishonestly discounts it.

who="Cathcher1"]Hey, when you play ball(s), you can have fun with no risk.

When we play ball, we are at serious risk of terrible pain.

With proper design, you would still have something to play with, and we would be far safer.
Well, you know, problem with that is that everyone has a different opinion of "proper" or perfect design. How would you ever get your balls played with then?:)

And more importantly, why would you assume that God would make something "perfect" anyway? Maybe this is just the way it is meant to be, for whatever reason it is meant to be?

I guess I agree that babies should be left alone regarding that. But me personally; I'm glad I got it cut off. It's too weird to have that, IMO. Still I guess it would be better to wait and let the man as an adult make that decision for himself.

Tired of this. Thanks for the conversation, but we've been going in circles for a while now. My only point is that if you require a mechanism for consciousness from non-consciousness before we can infer meaning from the apparent brain/thought connection, you might as well demand a similar mechanism for everything else for which we have no explanation, therefore ruling out any current observations. That, to me, makes no sense. It's technically true, but I think it's prudent to go with what we have rather than what we might have someday.
Yea me too. We've only been going in circles because you refuse to admit that science cannot make a statement such that consciousness is more likely a molecular phenomenon than a quantum one. It's a fact yet you insist it isn't. And if you say you do not insist on that, then there is no argument at all here. Like you're just playing word games.

You keep saying it is "prudent to go with what we have" yet we have nothing on a mechanism for consciousness. All we have is association of molecules. So hopefully this merry go round is over, you can think what you want. You're not the only one that doesn't understand the point I am making, even though it is pretty simple to understand.

Sorry, then, but that's what it sounded like. It seems to me that you have trouble accepting that everything is a transitional fossil because you want to be able to point to one specific species as being "in between" ape and man (as if man is the 'endpoint'), when that's not how it works. Everything is constantly transitioning to something else. Sorry that I got the wrong impression.
