    Again...where am I suggesting all or even most of the evolutionary scientists are frauds? I think most are doing what they do...postulating, researching, postulating some more.

    That sounds very much like the very foolish and fantasy based position of most elected democrats! Can you IMAGINE the type of people that vote for them?

    Re: Evolution

    I didnt answer because there isnt a poll option for me.

    First off though evolution exists PERIOD. This is not debatable, it has been proven and we have seen evidence of it over and over again. To deny this makes you blind, dishonest and bias on THIS subject or you are just an idiot.

    That being said, when I say evolution Im just talking about its definition that exists.

    If people want to debate on how much is random, to what extent it works, if god allows or controls it, if WE actually came from monkeys or adam & eve etc etc well have at it. That debate IS open.

    BUT unless you want to dishonestly change the definition of the word, there is no debate to anybody honest, rational and smart on whether evolution exists at all. That debate was closed many moons ago.

    So... you think that they're earnest... but wrong? By all means publish some evidence that contradicts the established theories.

    Anyone who believes that the existence of evolution itself is a topic up for debate should ask themselves one simple question; where did my cute, fluffy, toy poodle come from?

    The history of animal domestication alone provides enough evidence that evolution does exist to one extent or the other, and that singling out and promoting 'favorable' genes through the breeding process will shape the way an animal will think, look, and act over time.

    You dont just keep changing the bar, you create some new starting point and want to say 'go'. Im not even sure what you are arguing. SOME researchers deliberately create flawed theory and offer fabricated evidence to support it. Some studies are legit...let the chips fall where they may. Some are guided to produce a deliberate result. Its the nature of science, research, people. In order to get fundingyou have to be able to show 'results'. There isnt a "Journal of Huh...That didnt at ALL Look Like What we Initially Thought it Did" although it would be kinda cool if there was.

    Can I interest you in a piece of cloning research from famed South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-suk?

    Not all. Definitely some.
