Actually, there is no such thing as centrifugal force. Basic high school physics. What there is, is centripetal acceleration, provided in the earth-moon case by gravity.
Centrifugal force (from Latin centrum, meaning "center", and fugere, meaning "to flee") represents the effects of inertia that arise in connection with rotation and which are experienced as an outward force away from the center of rotation. In Newtonian mechanics, the term centrifugal force is used to refer to one of two distinct concepts: an inertial force (also called a "fictitious" force) observed in a non-inertial reference frame, and a reaction force corresponding to a centripetal force.

The term is also sometimes used in Lagrangian mechanics to describe certain terms in the generalized force that depend on the choice of generalized coordinates.

The concept of centrifugal force is applied in rotating devices such as centrifuges, centrifugal pumps, centrifugal governors, centrifugal clutches, etc., as well as in centrifugal railways,**planetary orbits,** banked curves, etc. These devices and situations can be analyzed either in terms of the fictitious force in the rotating coordinate system of the motion relative to a center, or in terms of the centripetal and reactive centrifugal forces seen from a non-rotating frame of reference; these different forces are equal in magnitude, but centrifugal and reactive centrifugal forces are opposite in direction to the centripetal force.

Didn't say that dude. I said that the "Tower of Babel" incident never happened.

The religious folks have placed the Tower of Babel incident at around 2000 BC...a few hundred years after the Flood.

We know for a FACT that humanity had been spread ALL over the earth for thousands of years by this time. North and South America were the last continents to be populated and we KNOW that there were lots of people in the Americas by 15,000 BC.

There is no question at all that humans (modern Homo-sapiens) were all over Asia, China, Japan, Korea, Australia, India, and all of Europe and the British Isles. Spain and France have cave paintings going back at least 20,000 + years. Israel has human and Neanderthal bones in caves in Mt. Carmel dated to 50,000 years ago.

The Bible is mostly myth...especially the Old Testament.

If you don't then we know you your self don't believe the crap you're dishing out
Christians have put their money up to be claimed and yet no one can seem to claim it. Kind of proves where the BS really is.
The banana proves evolution.

Already pointed out to Hovind a bunch of times. Let's add to that list, shall we:

1. Cattle
2. Corn
3. Domestic cats
4. Domestic dogs, specifically the chihuahua
5. Rabbits with mouse ears
8. Glofish

... and that's off the top of my head. All have been observed, many selected by human intelligence, but all results of evolution. All hinge on evolution working, without evolution, you wouldn't have beef.

At some point, it is a completely different virus.

No, God created Souls and breathed the first one into Adam and then Adam became alive.
That is how the great book of fiction tells it! LOL!

Without a food source, the virus cannot exist, influenza needs bodies to live in, it needs other animals to survive.

Over 300 Monkey specie by science terms, By the bible terms that's one "Kind".
A biblical "Kind" can reproduce with each other.( in a very simple definition )
So you should be able to grasp it.
Evolution is one kind Mutating to another kind.
Never happened never will.
Well, if a biblical "kind" can only reproduce with each other, then there are actually over 300 "kinds" of monkeys.

Evolution is theory and fact but religitards are too stupid to understand.

Wrong.
If evolution is NOT a fact, then there would be no difference between one generation and the next.
Evolution is not fact. There is $250,000 out there at some churches to anyone that can prove evolution if fact. For over 10 years, the money is there go get it.
Turning on and off genes is not evolution. you've been brain washed.
Think of it this way. What goes up, must come down. It's a very basic observation of gravity. FACT
The theory of gravity is still just a theory
The Universal Theory of Gravity is often taught in schools as a “fact,” when in fact it is not even a good theory.
"First of all, no one has measured gravity for every atom and every star. It is simply a religious belief that it is “universal.” Secondly, school textbooks routinely make false statements. For example,“the moon goes around the earth.” If the theory of gravity were true, it would show that the sun's gravitational force on the moon is much stronger than the earth's gravitational force on the moon, so the moon would go around the sun. Anybody can look up at night and see the obvious gaps in gravity theory.
The existence of tides is often taken as a proof of gravity, but this is logically flawed. Because if the moon's “gravity” were responsible for a bulge underneath it, then how can anyone explain a high tide on the opposite side of the earth at the same time? Anyone can observe that there are 2 -- not 1 -- high tides every day. It is far more likely that tides were given us by an Intelligent Creator long ago and they have been with us ever since. In any case, two high tides falsifies gravity."
Even creationists admit that evolution happens (up to the point of it being observable).
Does not matter it's a theory and not fact.
