    Are you aware of the university study (over 60 years) where fruit flies were exposed to all manner of environmental changes (including radiation), 50,000 generations.

    Zero evolution.

    Fruit flies.

    How? I'm not sure. Much like evolution, that being is unobservable, not reproducible and unable to be tested against hypothesis.
    So, an "order that rose out of chaos"? Heh.

    The question you answered poses a false predicate.

    Adaptation (micro evolution) is PERFECTION.

    Comedy gold.
    You've claimed there are no transitional fossils, and when presented with a list of them you just handwave it away.
    You've claimed evolution is based on random chance, but have not presented proof of this.
    You've claimed evolution is against the laws of physics, but have not presented proof of this.
    You've claimed to have read Darwin's Origin book, yet have posted fundamental errors regarding how evolution functions. (You're completely ignoring selection pressures)
    You didn't watch the video I posted regarding the "blind watchmaker" example, despite your claims to be a software engineer.
    You seem to believe that evolution research ended a hundred and thirty years ago. You keep talking about evidence, but aren't willing to actually review any of it.
    And all the while starting from a belief that is itself based solely on faith. You keep talking about evidence yet are presenting a belief that relies on none.

    You seem willing to just handwave anything presented to you as "conjecture." There is no level of evidence that can convince you, so why should I post more? Can you tell me why you're even here?

    No beginning point = no chaos.

    How long do you think fruit flies have been around? Lots more than 60 years I am betting.

    Evolution is observable and testable and people have done both.

    And I don't speak with him, so I guess that I'll have to wait a while for an answer.

    And there you have a point. We should be able to observe macro evolution in action. Pointing to the fact that there is still at least part of the system we do not yet understand.

    If when you say "god" that you mean to include the flying spaghetti one, or Zoroaster or Jesus or rah or Yahweh or Allah, etc., then by all means, I suppose.
