    No, it's just that it's different theories is all. It's like saying our knowledge of electromagnetism is bunk because we don't have a quantum description of gravity.

    Oh please....Whatever caricature you can invent to make yourself superior...Not helpful to the discussion though.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    again, a more intelligent person would have the ability to consider what the taliban does goes further than moaning about the war on christmas and what color santa is. But we both know the political type your represent and it isn't the kind that respects actual data or logic. You're more about mindles braying and vilification, like the very individuals you constantly decry.

    Tell that to those persecuted by the American Taliban, especially women seeking an abortion or gays wishing to marry.
    You mean individuals the taliban would simply kill in some gruesome manner? The fact that you're so invested to trivializing such things is disgusting and a better man would feel shame at having to reflect on such things.

    And the ultra conservative Jews are in some ways no different from the ultra conservative Muslims.



    Heck they share religious texts and want to live in the same place.

    Well, if evolution is correct then what did life evolve from?

    No, that's absolutely false. A few biology courses should clear that up for you.



    So, that species of bacteria adapted to it's environment but did not evolve to a new species. That doesn't show macro evolution. And the rest is just your excuse. Species is NOT a fuzzy term.
    Bacteria don't interbreed. What was that you said about biology courses?

    I guess we're done discussing evolution, and we'll just move onto attacking Christians?

    Hasta manana.

    I don't know. Abiogensis proposes some mechanisms, but it's not well understood at this point.

    OK, I'll play, what evidence do those who believe in intelligent design or creationism have that disproves the evolutionary theory? And again, let's just say the fossil record is lying, don't we still have to ask why it took so friggin long for modern humans to arrive? Either God or the Aliens must have been really bad at getting it right the first time.

    Evolution describes the change in living organisms. Life evolves from other life. The term you are looking for is "abiogenesis," which describes how something not-alive turns into something that is.
