Question About Creationists

To paraphrase the Good Book:

"Simians are not proud of their cousins and never invite them round to dinner."
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

That's not a very good comparison because...well ducks ARE birds...

Whatever you have to tell yourself to get through the day .... Just dont try to teach that bullshit to my kid and we will be fine Smile

Says the guy who believes he "evolved" out of primordial soup. Let's just get one thing straightened out...both of us believe we are made from the elements so you're not saying much with your "insult". As for your last comment, you would rather teach your kids their ancestors are single celled bacteria, fish and apes (and a bunch of weird looking creatures we have no actual fossils for)...talk about BS...

His post #31 sure read that way to me.
God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

That's what I said. Duck is to bird as human is to ape, for the exact same reason. It's not, strictly speaking, a comparison, it's a classification. There are five species of great ape, genus Hominidae: orangutans, gorillas, bonobos, common chimpanzees, - and humans. You might not like it but it's a fact. As the old saying goes, you can't choose your family.

All the other Hominidae species have 24 pairs of chromosomes, compared to humans' 23. Thus, if the common-ancestor theory is sound, evolutionary biology predicted that at one time all five species had either 23 (one of which split to give their 24) or 24 pairs of chromosomes (two of which fused together, giving our 23). Since the 'extra' pair exists among four out of the five, it was a reasonable starting assumption that the latter event occurred. Biologists engaged in the research predicted what they ought to find and what it must look like. Some time later, they found precisely what they had predicted ought to exist on human chromosome #2. (ref)

You, me, Britney Spears, Tom Cruise, the Pope, - we are all apes. Sorry.

Every time I see some creationist style debate I don't know if I should laugh or cry..

I mean seriously a lot of the big time "Professional creationists" admit that micro evolution happens + in some time and oh look full blown evolution.

You just gave me a raging science boner.

Apparently my comment went over your head. Anyway it's not a fact it's a fantasy.

Yeah but you left out an important detail. We do not know the function of over 97% of the human genome. So even if chromosome 2 actually fused (no way to actually prove), it does not prove that the fusion formed a human from an ape. Especially when you consider that we do not even know the function for most genes in the genome.
