    You can tap dance around it all you want. Explain to me how 2 million+ years are missing from the biblical timeline between Adam and Eve and Jesus, and why Adam and Eve must have looked more like primates than modern humans.

    A few years untold and missing? No prob. 'Happens in movies and books all the time. Though, I will grant you that 2 million+ years is more than the average witter will usually drop. But in an good story of interplanetary empire, creation and apocalypse it is not unheard of.

    Evolution is, and acceptance of anthropological/archaeological/etc. facts has never been problematic for me. It's a convenient construct to mischaracterize Christians, but there has never been anything in the scientific record that conflicts with my beliefs. Every find that adds to our body of knowledge is very exciting and not a conflict at all.

    Actually, the "funny" part is how 99.9% of all bible believers will pick and chose which parts to believe or not, which parts are literal or not, and which parts to follow or ignore.
    It's a very hypocritical ideology in many ways.

    Forget the fact that over the thousands of years of interpretations and re-writings that many of the "stories" have changed, either purposefully to fill a "need", or accidentally based on how some words don't even exist any more.

    I do find the people who take the bible as an accurate, historical/factual and literal "word of god" rule book to be some of the most frightening people in the country.

What would interest me is evidence on how the early hominids reached North and South America. Advanced primates came into play about 70 million years ago, about 20-30 million years prior to that, the Americas had already significantly split westward.
    I described the reason it is news earlier on page 2 or so. But so far we have the only two topical replies....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    A common critique, and some people do that yes, however... in reality it isn't a matter of picking and choosing. It is a matter of understanding that there is a separation of covenants or dispensations; that some promises and requirements are specifically levied on a certain people operating in a certain culture and period of time, and interpreting scripture in the proper context.

    It is complicated, so no surprise some just want to characterize it as "picking and choosing".

    Maybe I just don't take these things seriously enough. But I do know a good number of very religious Protestants and Catholics none of whom seems to see a real problem with these discrepancies in chronologies nor with evolution vs the Bible for that matter.
