Einstein's Relativity played a major role in understanding cosmology, something physicists simply would not have been able to do without it.

    AFTER 1920, Relativity was explored and the theoretical existence of black holes were discovered therein. Again, classical physics presumed light was not affected by gravity, and could not predict a black hole.

    That's two items that were dependent upon relativity for explanation. There's more.

    To demonstrate that your use of outdated quotes intended to disqualify the theory of evolution by natural selection merely demonstrates your own deep ignorance of the history of science and thus disqualifies your own adamant position against the theory.

    I'm neutral. But I do have a biased towards evolution, as it does provide more evidence for it's points of arguments.

    Christianity has existed for about 2000 years, Judaism (biblical) for 3,300 years, organised Chinese civilisation for 4,000 years, and Egypt for 5,000 years. Descriptive written records weren't developed, as I'd like to think until only 5,000 years, around about the same time Ancient Egypt had emerged.

    5,000 years is still far too short to witness evolution, maybe in the future, us homo sapiens will evolve into something else. But then again, God could've also created us.

    But see, that's why God gave us the fossil record, so we could look back through time and take a gander at the laws of His great universe!

    Well according to scientists we have reached a turning point in our biological chemsitry in terms of evolution and that our bodies will be unrecognizable in 2,000 years time as a result of such evolution.

    Unrecognizable in what regard? How much the genome of a slow-reproducing organism can change in 2,000 years?

    Unrecognizable physically with large genetic variations from our current human forms. In other words we wont look the same at all.

    I'd like to see that article... From whence do said scientists postulate that variations will stem? Natural mutation alone? I wouldn't think so.

    Re: Evolution: Did we really evolve from Apes?

    But wouldn't interbreeding make us all look the same eventually?

    Unrecognisable physically? Meaning we'll grow tails maybe? A third leg? Oh wait, how about wings?

    “We used a new genomic technology to show that humans are evolving rapidly, and that the pace of change has accelerated a lot in the last 40,000 years, especially since the end of the Ice Age roughly 10,000 years ago,” says research team leader Henry Harpending, a distinguished professor of anthropology at the University of Utah.

    Harpending says there are provocative implications from the study, published online Monday, Dec. 10 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences:

    – “We aren’t the same as people even 1,000 or 2,000 years ago,” he says, which may explain, for example, part of the difference between Viking invaders and their peaceful Swedish descendants. “The dogma has been these are cultural fluctuations, but almost any temperament trait you look at is under strong genetic influence.”
