Yes there are similarities in DNA between man and ape but man has the ability to get out of the jungle. A big leap I would say would'nt you. How much more has man accomplished than a monkey. Now you tell me can a monkey get to the moon... on his own?

I understand that it's not fact. But I don't see the Evidence as exclusive to Evoultion. Most Evidence that is used to back up the theory can also be used in an ID situation.

And what I was saying about the fossil record is that there should be a ton of Transitional Fossils because of the Numerous amounts of Variations that have to come about to come from one state to another state. There isn't. Mathmatically speaking, a couple million years of slight varitations should leave a signifigant number of animals.

So when adam and eve had a couple sons, and then they slept with their mom to start the chain of life on this planet, I have to wonder why I'm still able to see straight, I don't have a confederate flag on my truck, and I don't like anheuser busch products, since technically we're all inbred.

Maybe the snake who had just lost its feet for allowing them to eat the apples somehow prevented genetic defects in the offspring.



How many incest-laden families have made it to the moon? If your answer is none, then we evolved from monkeys.

Proof of evolution is actually on this thread. People like aber16 will someday have offspring that will use the part of their brain that makes good desicions.

You know that is one thing that I always wondered about myself. If it all started with Adam and Eve, then yes it was Eve or a sister. Good point, I will look into that and see if I can find you an answer.

Do you know how many T-Rex skeletons there are.....30. It seems that remains of bones from millions of years ago (or 5,000 years ago according to your beliefs) are somewhat hard to find.

If you find something explaining what happened (not opinions, but stated in the bible) let me know, I'd be very interested in reading it.

Thats not proof thats just your opinion. I can thank God that he opened my eyes that I can see the truth and not be fooled by lies. Praise God I pray my children and my childrens children always see the truth.

It doesn't fall far from the ignorant tree either, I guess ignorance is bliss.

I agree that they are both opinions, but I have to just look what side has more logic behind it.

After all the "miracles" in the bible, I find it very hard to believe that nobody has witnessed a miracle since real record keeping has been around. It is just weird that all the cool things in the bible that used to happen stopped for some reason.

on the other hand, every day we learn more about evolution via science, and we continue to see more truth behind what has been speculated for a long time involving change over time.

There was actually a show on TLC or Discovery about modern day saviors in the Middle East. A camera crew followed these people around as they performed acts similar to turning water into wine. The people performing these miracles were actually skilled illusionists hired by the broadcaster to show small villages how these ILLUSIONS actually worked so they would stop giving money and valuables to these travelers who claimed to have some Biblical connection.

Yes, I saw that as well. Such as the people levitating and such with the wooden seats built into their garments. And I believe what was once thought of as a "miracle" is now easily explained with science.

On what day were the dinosaurs made?

Does the bible mention dinosaurs?

These were very large and abundant creatures, surely there is a book missing from the story of the bible.

"Christianity was brought to the forefront by a crazy cult leader named Jesus." God also spoke to David Koresh, right?
