Most living organisms have certain genes in them, unexpressed, that when the environment begins to change, will begin to express themselves (i'm speaking over generational time here).


That is a good point Astus. I have only been reading of creation debate short time (mainly because I didn't know the debate was actually taken so seriously and that it is in media so much now) and common thing that is overlooked from creation argument is HOX genes and other genes that are supressed until environmental stress does not inhibit their mutation phenotype. I have read arguments where creationist say that genome does not contain information for creating limbs or other characteristics that are not there, but this is not correct and seems to be misleading main argument for some.

I thought it was funny. :lol:
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
