Sungula spouts off an accusation and CANT back it up.

RE: The code that is DNA
I don't have time to watch the video, actually can't from work. I'd be interested in knowing the details on that straw man myself. Macro vs. micro-evolution has been mentioned, and it's a mistake to distinguish them as 'there's evidence for microevolution but not for macroevolution', but not sure that's a strawman.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.

Macro and micro are evolutionary terms; you'll find them used in any textbook on the subject. See the following two references as well:

-Grant, P. R., and B. R. Grant. 1995. Predicting microevolutionary responses to directional selection on heritable variation. Evolution 49: 241–251.

-Futuyma, D. J., M. C. Keese, and D. J. Funk. 1995. Genetic constraints on macroevolution: The evolution of host affiliation in the leaf beetle genus Ophraella. Evolution 49: 797–809.

John, let me start with the fact that your posts here are without merit, every single one of them. No let me conlude by asking you to stop with the lying by quote mining. As a christian you should be free from sin. And lying constantly, like you do, is a grievous sin.

RE: The code that is DNA
The only difference between ‘micro’ and ‘macro’ evolution is time. Deep time is difficult to understand. Scientists sometimes use words loosely, like the difference between hypothesis and theory. They know their peers will understand. The ToE stands all tests ever presented. Speciation has been observed in the lab, in the field (I am thinking Chiclids in Lake Victoria), and in the dna and fossil record. To say otherwise displays a lack of understanding, we can all post papers until the cows come home. Enrol in university and study biology, virology, medical research, genetics etc; if you really want to know rather than pissing around on a forum with lame apologetics.

Referencing is not the same as quoting lol; and in this case I've done neither. I merely illustrated with the titles of two papers that microevolution and macroevolution are real distinctions that evolutionary biologists make. Here's an example of a quote, to illustrate:

"In a population of birds, for example, the average beak size may change from one generation to the next. This is known as microevolution. Second, lineages split and diverge, thereby increasing the number of species. An ancestral species of birds, for instance, may give rise to two distinct descendant species. This is called speciation. Third, over long periods of time, novel forms of life can derive from earlier forms. Tetrapods, for example, arose from a lineage of fish. This kind of dramatic change over time is called macroevolution" (Herron and Freeman, 2014, p. 38).

The distinction between micro and macro evolution lies not in the time it takes, as another user suggested, but at the level in which the change occurs. Speciation functions as a bridge between the two.

RE: The code that is DNA
I did not suggest ALL speciation takes deep time. Otherwise it would not be observed in the lab (Lenski) or in fish populations. From the LCA to now is a different matter. Don’t quote papers out of context with this discussion.

Nope i stated a fact back by the fact he did

Quote:“Sungula cheated on his taxes and robbed an elderly woman”
Yeah well that never happened unlike Tours straw man .Which is of course why his doesn't bother me .


Quote:Don’t bother to ask me how I know this.
Had to know something that never happened .Unlike Tour whom i watched do so . 


Quote:I just stand by it
All right then you stand by that thing that never happened and i'll stand by the thing that did happen .I think that makes us both happy .

Evolution is just change in n Allele Frequency. Tell us when that occurs in a population.
