It has not...What...your circular reasoning of "we evolved because we evolved" when the evidence actually shows that vast and diverse life forms appeared abruptly with no evidence of any life forms available that they evolved from can be produced leaves no reasonable doubt? Are you kidding me? LOL...HILARIOUS!!!

<quoted text>Uniformitarianism is kind of... essiantial to modern science. No big surprise there. We have no reason to believe that the natural laws we see today and the laws governing radioactive decay were any different in the past.
Faith is a cop out. It's an excuse for the lack of proof. There is an invisible monkey that lives on my shoulder and feeds me information. I don't need proof - I have faith.
Uniformitarianism is the ASSUMPTION that the same natural laws and processes that operate in the universe now have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe. Once again...it's an ASSUMPTION!

Faith isn't a cop out or an excuse. I don't need or require proof, therefore....I don't need an excuse. You do, however, because you lack faith.

Did it ever occur to you that perhaps, as human beings, we deceive ourselves...particularly when we assume we have the right to place ourselves on the same playing field as an immortal God. Personally, I think to assume a God might think on the same intelligence level of man is kinda silly.

<quoted text>I really don't understand how it's possible to compartmentalize your mind like this. For you to believe a scientific fact it seems you would need to hop in a time travel machine and watch life evolve in real time, but for you to believe in god you just need "faith," aka a mental cop out. It's a euphemism for not applying the reasoning powers of the human brain to something that makes absolutely no sense, because if you did you'd be forced not to believe it anymore.
I'm not compartmentalizing. I'm open minded and unlike you, I have the ability to be both analytical and spiritual. I'm intelligent to figure out that I have a choice to either have faith in the assumptions of science or faith in God. There is a vast amount of physical evidence to support many scientific theories...I don't dispute that nor do I doubt all of it. There is also a vast amount of spiritual evidence to support God...you aren't spiritual...and have no understanding of it. If it best suits your personal needs to belittle and demean people who have knowledge of something you have no understanding of...then do so.

Well...let's see...if evolutionary scientists who are experts on the Cambrian fossil record agree that animaly phyla appear abruptly, and that the few Precambrian fossils (including the “enigmatic” Ediacarans) are not ancestral to the Cambrian animals....then it pretty much blow the Darwin theory of evolution completely out of the water. I mean, if you wanna continue to insist that all life forms evolved, using the fossil record as your key evidence, then by all means, do that. However, scientific evidence clearly cannot prove that and two expert evolutionary scientists have very clearly stated such. That article had nothing to do with dates being changed. Did you even read it? It was clear, the two evolutionary scientists, who, again, are EXPERTS on the Cambrian fossils and who are not creationists...clearly stated that animaly phyla appear abruptly, and that the few Precambrian fossils (including the “enigmatic” Ediacarans) are not ancestral to the Cambrian animals. They had no agenda...there was no "need", as you state, for a certain answer. There was an abrupt appearance of phyla and there is no fossil record to prove that phyla evolved from anything.
It seems to me you may not be biased, but rather, just flat refuse to accept the fact that your Darwinist' beliefs have no true evidence of proof available.
You can smart off about pro evolution all day long, but until you can provide proof of how that huge, diverse, phyla of life forms came into existence all of the sudden via your evolutionary theory...you're just showing your ignorance and refusal to accept factual data. The reality is...you're no different than the creationists you love so much to throw off on.

You clearly don't understand the reason, and wouldn't want to.
But there is a clear and concise reason this happened.
It escapes you to want to know why I think.

Lol...I was finally able to access your little site. While you sit behind your little computer feeling all superior to me and sending me websites such as that, as if I'm beneath your level intelligence, I laugh. Do you really think your rude gestures of superiority show your intelligence? FYI...They don't....just shows your character.

We've been over this before. Where is it indicated that they are aware? They display behavior that we term altruistic, which is a misleading term that implies a directed effort to improve another life at one's own expense.

In reality, as the article itself states, this behavior is mediated solely by gene regulated chemical signals, which, while interesting, does not imply or necessitate awareness. When there is a lack of food, the appropriate signals go out and trigger the behavior.

If anything, it is suggestive of the gene centered theory of evolution, wherein the main goal is not necessarily the survival of the individual organism, but of similar genes. What's the death of a few single celled organisms if it means the rest have a better chance of survival? The "stalks" mentioned in the article are full of closely related single cells, which increases altruistic behavior for the previously mentioned reason.

Don't ever think an especially ignorant religiously retarded redneck like you has the capacity to understand the significance of the "Cambrian Explosion" more than rational people!

http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/cambrian/cambria...

The Cambrian Period marks an important point in the history of life on Earth; it is the time when most of the major groups of animals first appear in the fossil record. This event is sometimes called the "Cambrian Explosion," because of the relatively short time over which this diversity of forms appears. It was once thought that Cambrian rocks contained the first and oldest fossil animals, but these are now found in the earlier Ediacaran (Vendian) strata.

But we do understand what we evolved from? We come from ape-like ancestors. Who came from monkey-like ancestors, who were mammals. Mammals evolved from protomammals (synopsidae), 260 million years ago (off the top of my head, I may be a ten or twenty million out). Synopsidae evolved from Reptillians. Reptiles evolved from amphibians. Amphibians evolved from fish. And here we are back in the Devonian, 420 million years ago
I disagree...and there is absolutely not definitive proof of that lineage you describe...

Perhaps science and what we know from it, is like When we are younger, many of us tend to see the world in clearly defined terms of black and white, right and wrong. As we travel further down the path of life experience, we often begin to see and understand things not only in a vast arrays of shades of grey but in spectacular colors we could not have imagined. In seeking an answer for what we "know" we discover that often, what we "know" is really fluid.
Yes. Science sees the world like a child.

In fact, religious faith is the ultimate cop-out. It's called faith because there's no evidence and bullshit would be a dead giveaway to all but the world's most retarded godbots such as you. A godbot invokes faith when they know there's no merit to their views.
