    Evolution is a falsehood

    There is a creator God because there is no evidence of evolution taking place on this earth. Evolution is a theory not a fact. Life on this planet is diminishing, not advancing. The very first life forms on this planet are still basically the same. The rock strata shows that while one group suddenly died out, another suddenly came into being. If evolution was true, then the missing links would not be missing. Artist depictions of how life evolved is not scientific fact. Limited adaptability of life is not proof that life evolved.

    Dino bones not identified as such were carbon dated between 6000 and 12,0000 years old. Live DNA fragments have been found in fossil's said to be many millions of years old.

    The bible does not say how old the world is. It has always been taught that the creation days are epochs of time.

    Man made gods of rock and sticks are not true gods but a products of the imagination. There is only one true God, and His name is Yahwah. The name Yahwah means "Life Began.


    Isaiah 43:10. "You are my witnesses," declares the LORD (Yahwah), "and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god formed, nor will there be one after me.

    DNA fragmentation is the separation or breaking of DNA strands into pieces. It can be done intentionally by laboratory personnel or by cells, or can occur spontaneously. Spontaneous or accidental DNA fragmentation is fragmentation that gradually accumulates in a cell.

    This finding means chimps are the closest living biological relatives to humans, but it does not mean that humans evolved from chimps. What it does indicate is that humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes (i.e., gorillas and chimpanzees), making us very, very distant cousins. We are therefore related to these other living primates, but we did not descend from them.

    Evolution is a theory, not a fact, for life on this planet. God evolved.

    DNA similarity does not indicate relatedness. (If that was so, your distant relatives are turnips). DNA similarity indicate similarity of design. We should expect all primates to have similar 'building blocks'... and, similar DNA.

    God's Word tells us, we are not related to fruit trees, and not related to African apes.

    Your phrasing shows either you are ignorant of what “theory” means in science, or you are taking an opportunistic cheap shot based on semantics rather than substance.

    I have no idea what you are implying by that statement. God has adapted to be more compatible with his creation now, or what?

    So? I presume you know that the ToE does include plants as distant relatives.

    Since nature is a rather inefficient designer, then I agree that when we see similar designs in nature that indicates a likelihood that nature did use existing “building blocks”.

    Then your god must not be much better than nature is at introducing variations of design. Is your all-powerful god incapable of basing some life forms on some other biological mechanism than DNA?

    For understanding how the diversity of life came to be, I prefer to rely on thousands of on-going biological studies instead of ancient religious legends handed down from iron-age nomadic tribes.

    God "FORMED."

    That doesn’t say anything about why you stoop to dismissing evolution because it is a theory, nor does it say anything about what you meant by saying God evolved.

    You should tell the court system that. I'm sure there are a lot of alleged fathers of children out there who would like to know.

    No, it says a lot. God evolved and created life on this planet.

    I am assuming that this is the part you are referring to?
    ______________________
    The Relationship between Apes and Humans
    Since scientists developed the ability to decode the genome and compare the genetic makeup of species, some people have been stunned to learn that about 98.5% of the genes in people and chimpanzees are identical.
    ______________________

    Now for the rest of the story:
    ______________________
    Humans Are Not 98% Genetically Identical to Chimpanzees

    First, the 98% figure is probably overstated. An article in Science puts the actual figure at 94%. (Jon Cohen, "Relative Differences: The Myth of 1%, June 29, 2007). But even these figures are only measuring about 2% of our total genetic makeup - that is, those genes that code for proteins, the building blocks of our physical bodies and functions.

    The vast majority of our DNA, known as "non-coding DNA" - sometimes called "junk DNA" because it was once thought not to have function - is very different in humans from most non-coding genes found in chimps and other apes. However, recent research has found that, contrary to previous belief, this repetitive DNA isn’t "junk" after all, but has distinct purposes.

    Research continues as to the exact nature and functions of non-coding genes, but given the wide differences between human and ape non-coding DNA, even if the purported 98% genetic similarity to coding DNA is true, it is actually only 98% of a much smaller percentage of our total genetic makeup, perhaps as low as 98% of 2%!

    Proponents of the Great Ape Project might reply in defense that the coding genes are the ones that really count, but that is not scientifically supported anymore.

    I see that your level of dialogue is to mindlessly repeat your nebulous claim that “God evolved” without actually explaining what that means. Pardon my impinging on your time by asking. I will try to limit my responses to just those posters who are not so superficial. Have a good day.
