Dinosaur to bird; Archeopteryx----dated to 150-million years ago. Small bi-pedal dinosaur with feathers.
From the fossil record dating back approximately 4-million years; Ardipithecus to modern human. We find the fossil record shows Ardipithecus evolving into Australopithecus. Somewhere between 2.75 and 3 million years ago early hominoids who walked bipedally began to emerge in Africa. Then came Homo erectus, then came Archaic Homo sapiens, and then the Modern Homo sapiens arrived.
Fossil record, mitochondrial DNA, modern dating methods and science . . . what was I thinking.
The following information came from 2-books;
1. Anthopology, An Integrated Approach
2. Taking Sides, Clashing Views on Controversial Issues in Anthropology
Please feel free to Google, I just used some of my College Texts.
Where the highly designed machinery of life, and all it's SYMBIOTIC relationships which MUST exist simultaneously, were created by an engineer outside of space-time.
Isn't the real fairy tale the idea that the universe was generated by an explosion of ??????? and became us?
One strand of DNA is VASTLY more complex than every single creation devised by mankind.
A single bird wing shows more engineering than every flying device man has created.
DNA auto-corrects it's own errors. I wish I could write code like that!
I am aware of the studies, here's a bit about one - In an international study, the humble fruit fly gives clues to genetic adaptation and immune system evolution | Cornell Chronicle
Here's another: Study of fruit fly chromosomes improves understanding of evolution, fertility
I must assume the following is the basis for your rejection of reality: - 100 Years of Fruit Fly Tests Show No Evolution
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Evolution is not abiogenesis.2. Forming Polymers Requires Dehydration Synthesis
Evolution is not abiogenesis.3. RNA World Hypothesis Lacks Confirming Evidence
Evolution is not abiogenesis.4. Unguided Chemical Processes Cannot Explain the Origin of the Genetic Code.
Evolution is not abiogenesis.5. No Workable Model for the Origin of Life
No, solve those and you have a real argument for abiogenesis.Solve those, and you have a real argument for evolution, as indisputable....But I don't think that either side has all the answers, or that either side is 100% right on the issue.
One of you will end up here next!
