Re: Debating Evolution

Hi, I'm currently debating on evolution. I would like to know how to rebut him so far. I'm a little bit stuck. Me:* Actually, what scientists compare aren’t just the similarities, they also consider the differences. There are some genetic sequences/mutations that are shared among some organisms but...

Re: Does human ancestry have two parents?

Actually, I don't understand how a species emerges. When a new species emerges, does it come from two parents? Does it emerge from a handful of individuals? For example, I know it's not this simple but say a raptor changes into a bird. Do two birds happen to be born and then they reproduce, or are ...

Re: What does it mean that dinosaurs ruled the earth?

I have heard people say that dinosaurs ruled the earth and then when they were extinct mammals ruled the earth. What does this mean? Does it mean that they took up the most space or that they had the greatest numbers? Do mammals really rule the earth because there are way more insects than mammals?...

Re:

I guess it all comes back to our presuppositions of Creation and evolution, for a Creationist they are: that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, that the Bible is God's word, that God created the world in six days about 6000 years ago, and that about 4500 years ago a worldwide f...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Hi robsabba Thanks for your comments. My response is as follows Creationists hate the Lenski experiments because it blows holes in some of their most beloved paradigms: 1. Natural selection cannot lead to an increase in "information." 2. Evolution cannot produce new functions. As I am nei...

Re:

The Long Term Evolution Experiment (LTEE) has been going on since 1988. Some more detail of terms of the experiment. When I stated in my last post that E. coli can ALMOST digest citrate” this was deserving of a little more explaination. E . coli already has a number of enzymes that normally use cit...
