    because schools shouldn't teach religion in science class, period.

    I don't believe the earth is 6000 years old. I am an old earth Christian. We don't know how long a day is to the creator of everything. As for Noah, could be. The truth is we don't know.

    That would be one line. Yes, as new evidence comes forward, we do change, but we do have some pretty good lines of descent. You can find some examples here: List of transitional fossils - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    No we can't. We can look at similarities and say "A probably became Z." True we can show how mutations can cause changes (usually detrimental and fatal). However, we can't look at creature A's genome, compare it to Z, and say "this is the mutations that lead to these new traits and speciation."

    lib, I really don't know what your problem is with me. Can't you just talk about the topic without the insults? Jeez louise.

    Yes, I know what Creationism is. I was pointing out what Blackdog said to you that you seemed to have missed.
