    Duh. That should have been obvious to me. You don't believe in climate science for political reasons. So where are all those left-wing glaciers retreating to, the USSR?

    Lets just say that you accuse me of what you do. Typical pseudo conservative tactic.

    Keep pretending you're winning.

    Darwins theory of evolution explains life on this planet
    God = belief and doesn't explain anything

    A belief in god is the furthest thing from science.

    Actually, HeadFullaRocks, Darwin's theory has been shown to be the furthest thing from science.


    The author of the following, Kas Thomas, has degrees in biology and microbiology, and is a former University of California Regents Fellow, and has taught biology, bacteriology, and laboratory physics at the college level.


    And he writes......

    1. "... I have a certain amount of discomfort, myself, with evolutionary theory—not because it demeans the nobility of man or denies the Bible, or anything of that sort, but because it's such an incomplete and unsatisfying theory on purely scientific grounds.

    2. Darwin's theory is subject to some very legitimate scientific criticisms. Biologists are, by and large, painfully aware of the theory's shortcomings.

    3. Darwin's landmark work...The Origin of Species, ...doesn't actually explain in detail how speciation happens (and in fact, no one has seen it happen in the laboratory, unless you want to count plant hybridization or certain breeding anomalies in fruit flies).

    [....there are still many things we don’t understand about how chromatin is managed, how micro-RNA is regulated, when and why DNA methylases come into play, the relative importance (or unimportance) of translocases, and much, much more. To assert that we understand how speciation occurs is to assert a half-truth."

    4. "It's shocking how much venom and bile you can stir up by criticizing Darwin in public. I more or less expected, when I wrote a post critical of evolutionary theory at BigThink.com, there'd be a few heated comments. I didn't expect so many of the 600+ comments to be so heated. Quite a few of the comments were and are just plain ugly. And the most vitriolic attacks came not from the religious right, but from supporters of Darwin! "

    Ain't that the truth.
    See it in this thread.

    The less informed they are,the more irate they become when Darwin is criticized.


    5. When Chinese paleontologist Jun-Yuan Chen’s criticism of Darwinian predictions about the fossil record was met with dead silence from a group of scientists in the U.S., he quipped that, “In China we can criticize Darwin, but not the government; in America you can criticize the government, but not Darwin.”

    Despite all the issues Kas Thomas has with scientists and evolution, he is NOT a creationist. What does that tell you?

    Why are bringing up 'creationists'?

    The point I've made and proven is that Darwinian theory has been proven false.

    Dunces....raise your paw.....react to said truth in the way you have....and, in this instance, attempt to change the subject.

    QED, Darwin's theory is political, not scientific.

    You can't disprove Darwin's theory by quoting scientists that believe it to be true. Darwin, Wallace, Chen, Thomas, etc.
