    Because it was a hoax. It was fabricated. I also suspect that you do not know the difference between macro and micro evolution. They are both empirically verifiable and are fundamentally the same processes on different time scales.

    Re: Do you reject evolution?

    I love people sometimes...

    Grrrr, 1/3rd of the country is stupid and don't believe in evolution. This makes me angry!

    - people then proceed to say they believe in evolution, but not in the EXACT same way

    Grrr! People don't believe ievolution happens EXACTLY as I believe. This makes me angry!

    As to my own stance...yes, I accept evolution is highly probable in terms of a macro level and is absolutely mfactual on a more micro level of the term and it's implications. Yes, I don't proport to know or claim definitively in either direction if the various natural laws of this universe was designed by a divine entity, given "life" of sorts by a divine entity, are the direct machinations of a divine entity, or are entirely random in practice/nature/creation.

    Channeling imaginary friends here? Data is data, and the data supporting the theory is unassailable. It's fact.
    Don't work out, work in.

    The data is the data and the theory is the theory.

    "Chariot of the Gods," by Erik Von Daniken presented a lot of historical artifacts that make it difficult to refute that perhaps earlier civilizations had experience with flying ships and perhaps people. No guarantees, but enough evidence that it cannot be dismissed out of hand.

    Re: Do you reject evolution?

    I'm partial to the idea that RNA came from aliens, as opposed to abiogenesis. Given our current near ability to 'impregnate' other planets and our lack of ability to replicate abiogenesis, evidence appears to support the former.

    But no visitors.
