    The Scientist Who Scrambled Darwin’s Tree of Life

    After reading thread after thread by Creationist quacks about Evolution- I wanted to share this article that I found fascinating as it explores some of the complicated science and messiness of what we now know about evolution- and how we got here.

    In particular what I found fascinating was horizontal gene transfer- how genes can transfer between species

    I love those that claim they believe in evolution but never practice it.

    I am curious.

    Where you too scared to read the article?

    Or just not capable of reading it?

    So that means you do not practice it, figure that. So you believe because you are told to do so by the far left religion and do not truly understand it.

    Another USMB 12 IQ Moron.
    People ask what they can do to improve the board.
    A recent mod thread on it.
    The answer is to get rid of Trolling morons/partisan thugs like you, who are too Dumb to post.
    Really.
    I mean this not as an insult but a sad fact.

    One doesn't "Practice" Evolution, any more than one "practices" Gravity.
    It's a fact of life/nature/science.

    I think it is a reference to people who have learned to post articles on this forum but still are unable critically analyze or restate them in their own words.

    I'm going to have to rate that guess as way off. I can't see that being the meaning of "not practicing evolution". And if one tried to explain evolution to Kosh, the eyes would be glazed over by the third word...
