So far, no creationist has repudiated the assertion (as they have done previously on this and other threads) that the theory of evolution is a scientific fact cheesy

davidylan:

how? Please explain how DNA lends credence to the theory of evolution.

allow me to evaluate this - "it smacks of gross ignorance to equate the study of fossils to the theory of evolution" . . . this is quite baffling. The theory of evolution requires a fossil record as concrete evidence. To suggest that somehow the fossil record is completely divorced from the theory of evolution is absolute crap and clear evidence you have no idea what you are talking about.

Even primary school pupils now know that all living things are propagated or reproduced by means of eggs or seeds consisting of genes or chromosomes which are made of DNA (isn't it an irony that an adult who claims to be a biologist doesn't understand the implication of this fact?). In other words all living things whether plants or animals can be reduced to a common chemical formular: the DNA (Deoxyribose nucleic acid).

We are all nothing but a collection of chemical compounds, brains and all. The difference between a Rabbit and a human is only a matter of rearrangement or resequencing of DNA! Its as simple as that.

Why is it so far-fetched to assume that all living things must have evolved from a common ancestor?

I didnt understand your logic here. You seemed to just go on a ramble and ended up saying exactly nothing. How does DNA help you ASSUME that you evolved from a common ancestor? Please lucidly advance that argument.

To say that the difference between a rabbit and a human is a mere rearrangement of DNA is evidence that you probably have never gone beyond high school biology.

For all your empty bluster, your argument here can be boiled down to this - humans and plants possess DNA, DNA is thus the common unit of life... hence plants and animals must have evolved from the same ancestor! Can you explain how animals and plants could have evolved from the same ancestor considering plant DNA is absolutely nothing close to human DNA?

No atheist has logically defended this assertion either beyond throwing empty faith-based claims here and there.

You shld just have said you have no answers to the questions we have posed to you for the last 1 yr. About time to give your online empty jingoism a rest. The rest of us have jobs.

I answered you questions on that thread and debunked you!

You and the OP have been caught making ignorant statements on evolution. I have learnt that wasting time with people that argue against hardcore evidence is not worth it.

You've become a standing joke. Besides... crying "debunk" at every one isnt proof that you truly know what you are talking about.
Secondly, since when did you realize that arguing in the face of "hardcore evidence" is not worth it? you've been practically living on these pages for over a year its sometimes a wonder that you have time to brush your teeth in the morning.

On a side note... i would be very happy to see your "hardcore evidence". It appears your buddy turnstoner has no ideas and is probably ferreting the internet for links to copy/paste as we speak.

Thanks. Indeed I am surprised to see he is posting again. He had agreed previously that where logic is concerned, creationists/religionists have no case. Maybe he has regained his second wind, like the proverbial cuckold that was dealt a near death blow!?

As usual, duck when you cannot answer your to your own verbose nonsense.

I agree that religion has very little to do with human logic. The bible admits that much.

I just asked that you explain your logic that led you to assume that humans AND plants evolved from a common ancestor. Or perhaps your assumption here is based on "faith"?

Oh ok... you must have no idea what you're talking about then since your "off the cuff" comments make no sense from the perspective of SSCE biology. See above.

Common descent has enough evidence. You are free to be ignorant.


God has none. You cant point to any physical evidence for god.

you miss the point. No one is arguing that religion is the bastion of human logic... however the problem is when atheists like yourself try to babble on that your disbelief is somehow anchored on some logical scientific reasoning.

Actually common descent has no evidence. The fossil record lacks one transitional species. In fact a new theory - punctuated equilibrium - was made precisely because of that. I can easily point to the order of things in Nature as a basis for inferring God. You know the funny thing is your reply wasn't germane to my comments. You didn't tackle the points I listed.

I note that your responses to Uyi's PINPOINT queries are mostly irrelevant one-liners that are so puzzling with regard to how exactly they pertain to the post you are quoting. It really isnt compulsory to respond to EVERY post particularly if you really have nothing to say.

Turnstoner raised the "DNA" issue yesterday as well and i remember getting no response back when i asked this simple question - plants have DNA just as man does... should that be "evidence" for common descent too?

So how does plant having DNA destroy common descent if the theory is that all life came from unicellular organisms?
