    Yeah? And where did that come from?

    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.

    Hmmm .....

    DNA auto-corrects it's own errors. I wish I could write code like that!
    I'm certain very few people deny that evolution as defined is but a theory, a theory that makes practical sense to so many. In contrast, absent a SHRED of evidence, believers will have you to know, dogmatically, that their god, now the list is too long to regurgitate again, is "thee" one responsible for having both brought into existence and sustains, all life as we know it and experience it.

    We don't, but there's no evidence that it did account for something so in a scientific discussion it's not terribly relevant.

    Quickly disproving evolution in one sentence!

    Mutual simultaneous symbiotic relationships, every single component from DNA -> cell -> organs -> external environment.

    To believe evolution, you need to accept that life generated from the greatest series of coincidences imaginable.

    No sperm -> dead

    No egg -> dead

    Simultaneous, mutual, symbiotic.

    If not: why aren't all creatures androgynous?
    So instead of replying to the points I made, you go on to yet another attempt to "prove" evolution isn't real. An argument works better when one side sticks with a topic and is willing to admit that a lack of knowledge of the subject under discussion just might mean the ignorant one doesn't really an argument - just rinse and repeat. The attempts by creationists to disprove the Theory of Evolution have been refuted time and time again for the past 100 years.

    Give it time, we are but a blink of the eye on the evolutionary timetable of Earth's existence. Literally.
