    Are you serious? He spent this entire thread telling us what he believes, so I gave him the analysis of it. Plain and simple, you can't remain logically consistent and believe both in the bible and evolution.

    If you'd like to make some arguments instead of crappy little one liners, I'll be here.

    I'm in on this thread. I can't wait for the compartmentalization(s) to flow forth.

    All it would take is for the creationists to produce one fossil that does not fit the pattern of evolution in a species, a transitional fossil that is the wrong age, etc. The problem with creationism is, in order to prove it, you must rely on "then, a miracle happened", an untestable, unrepeatable, unwitnessed miracle that somehow defied the laws of physics in order to happen. Produce that in a lab.

    Evolution has overwhelming proof, in the fossil record, in DNA, over a century of observation, discoveries have proved prior hypothesis. The evidence is there, it happens every day. And we are still learning. If you refuse to look at and understand and accept the proofs of evolution, you are, by definition, ignorant.

    I dont care about proof, I have faith. Proof would actually destroy faith. Let me just explain one more time, I completely believe in accept or whatever other word you want to use in evolution just as science describes it. I just have faith that is how God does it. Please point out where I said I dont look at, understand or accept any aspect of evolution. I think you only have arguments for short earth creationist and are dissappointed there are so few of them.

    Faith is nice but it is not science, faith and dogma based programs should not be taught in school. If you want to go to church and believe in a 6000 year old world, I am fine with that, but don't pollute our kids in taxpayer funded schools with dogma disguised as science, not a hard concept.

    Not sure how God came into this discussion or religion, but I think this find is absolutely amazing. It puts a big haze over the out of Africa 1 million years ago theory, and to me, and many others here it adds fuel to the fire that homo lived everywhere, which provides a path for speculation about interbreeding and intermixing of various homo species into homo erectus, and eventually homo sapiens. IN a nut-shell it suggests quite eloquently that we modern day humans share a mix of various genomes from perhaps several failed ancestral hominids. Essentially, modern day humans are all mutts.
