    Oh yeah? Every time they discover a new fossil they create two new missing links on either side of it. Take THAT you crazy Darwinist!

    Ardipithecus ramidus is one more recently discovered piece of the puzzle. Considering the scarcity of fossils in general, compared to all the species that have been over 4 billion years, don't expect to ever have all the little pieces connected by fossil evidence.

    ID makes the only sense in light of the Laws of Nature. That's not to say that I believe any religion's story of creation. I just think there is a higher power that began all this.

    We call this scientific discovery...it is actually not just expected, but hoped for.

    The only reason this does not take place with ID, is simply because there will not be discovery in the first place...unless someone digs up an angel someday, finds the bones of Adam, or God comes down and giggles at us over his dinosaur joke.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

Creationists, unfortunately, often try to use them as "proof" that scientists support creationist ideas, but they purposely misrepresent what Hoyle and Wickramsinghe actually believe.
    How often? Please provide links to these often attempts.

    I'm not, but you can improve discussion by ending the rabid mouthfoaming while people are trying to talk to you. You haven't provided anything more than your own rhetoric.

    The missing link controversy probably deserves a thread of it's own. Every so often someone claims they found it but nothing so far has been widely accepted by scientist as "the definitive missing link that proves Darwinism".
