"Evolution may be gradual or it may be rapid, most likely both, but it is still evolution."

The theory of Darwin, taught in government school as though proven, a law of science, is very clear in stating that it is gradual accumulation of random alterations.
What does the term 'gradual' mean to a geologist? One million years? Ten million years? In the fossil record, at specific locations, there may be a billion years between fossil layers. In such cases it would seem that the younger creatures appeared without any ancestors.

b. "Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon Will Quigg Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

He says he's retracting his endorsement of Donald Trump.

Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon Will Quigg Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

More

HILLARY CLINTON CAN ADD a new name to her list of endorsements – a prominent Ku Klux Klan member who says he likes her because of her "hidden agenda."
Will Quigg, a grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan's California chapter, told the Telegraph Monday that he would be switching his support from Donald Trump to Clinton.

Speaking of a "hidden agenda", I wonder if he switched his endorsement knowing it would make Hillary look like a KKK supporter instead of his first choice, Trump.

Regardless of his motivation, when the Telegraph asked Quigg why he reneged on his promise to support Trump in the race, he replied: "We don’t like his hair. We think it’s a toupee".
That is the quality of the people you quote. Keep up the good work.

"The link between Marx and Darwin is the same as between the KKK and today's GOP. "

I love when you post....you manage to put both feet in your mouth.

a. Liberal historian Eric Foner writes that the Klan was “…a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party…” Foner, “Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877,” p. 425.
Thanks for the history lesson, I guess you'd agree that the GOP support reparations.

You may have missed that I used the phrase "today's GOP". The phrase indicates I am referring to the present day not events 150 years ago. That Ivy League education may not have been very good or did you just ignore your professors since they were all commie pinkos?

What a stupid attempt to dig yourself out of the hole you put yourself in.

Be gone.

What significant scientific theory has 'proof'. What is the proof of creationism, religion, the supernatural?
Every aspect of chemistry including the explanation for the passing on of traits via DNA.

Since your knee-jerk response is to try to change the subject, the fact that you can't come up with as single proof of the theory is, in effect, agreement that I have skewered you again.


Excellent.
Got an example of a chemistry proof aside from alcohol? There is plenty we don't know about quarks, atoms, molecules, and the various forces of nature. I'd venture to say we have lots of evidence but no proof.

DNA is hardly a good example since we are still trying to understand the complex interactions of genes. There are plenty of diseases that appear genetic but we've been unable to isolate the actual genes responsible. Proven? Not a chance.

Nice try.

Obviously one of us has taken organic chemistry and the other is you.

We're gonna stick to Darwin and Marx.


Darwin wrote in his Origin,

"Consequently if this theory be true (evolution) it is indisputable that before the lowest Cambrian stratum was deposited, long periods elapsed, as long as, or probably far longer than, the whole interval from the Cambrian age to the present day; and that during these vast periods the world swarmed with living creatures."

Darwin stated here that if his theory were true there should have been multiplied billions of living creatures evolving who lived then for millions of years before the Cambrian era on the earth. What evidence did Darwin provide for any of this?

He continued:
"To the question why we do not find rich fossiliferous deposits belonging to these assumed earliest periods prior to the Cambrian system I can give no satisfactory answer . . . Nevertheless, the difficulty of assigning any good reason for the absence of vast piles of strata rich in fossils beneath the Cambrian system is very great."

Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, chapter Ten: On the Imperfection of the Geologic Record: On the Sudden Appearance of Groups of Allied Species in the lowest known Fossiliferous Strata.pp. 164

"Charles Darwin’s theory of gradual evolution is not supported by geological history, New York University Geologist Michael Rampino concludes in an essay in the journal Historical Biology"
Darwin’s Theory of Gradual Evolution Not Supported by Geological History, NYU Scientist Concludes



a. Darwin himself commented on the importance of such links:

“The several difficulties here discussed, namely our not finding in the successive formations infinitely numerous transitional links between the many species which now exist or have existed; the sudden manner in which whole groups of species appear in our European formations; the almost entire absence, as at present known, of fossiliferous formations beneath the Silurian strata, are all undoubtedly of the gravest nature.”

b. In fact, the fossil record does not demonstrate a sequence of transitional fossils for any species. As Newsweek reporter Jerry Adler accurately noted:

"In the fossil record, missing links are the rule: the story of life is as disjointed as a silent newsreel, in which species succeed one another as abruptly as Balkan prime ministers. The more scientists have searched for the transitional forms between species, the more they have been frustrated....

Evidence from fossils now points overwhelmingly away from the classical Darwinism which most Americans learned in high school: that new species evolve out of existing ones by the gradual accumulation of small changes, each of which helps the organism survive and compete in the environment." (Newsweek, 1980, 96[18]:95).
So you got nothing on evolution from this century? There have been no fossils found since Darwin?

Evolution may be gradual or it may be rapid, most likely both, but it is still evolution.

The link between Marx and Darwin is the same as between the KKK and today's GOP. The KKK identifies with GOP conservatism and States rights while the GOP, mostly, eschews the overt racism of the KKK.


"Evolution may be gradual or it may be rapid, most likely both, but it is still evolution."

The theory of Darwin, taught in government school as though proven, a law of science, is very clear in stating that it is gradual accumulation of random alterations.


And now I've forced you to admit it isn't true.

Excellent.
The Theory of Darwin you learned is from your time at the Harun Yahya Madrassah. They have a peculiar version.
