If anything, I'd say the human race has evolved into a new species.
We are the only one that can change our offspring's DNA deliberately.
That's unique in the animal kingdom, significantly different from the humans 10+ millennia ago.

Can you think of a new name for this advanced human species?

Chimps BEAT us into space, therefore Dr. Zaius is president and "Mighty Joe Young" wins Best Picture every year.

Interesting. I can't help but notice that the author (Carl Gallups) has no scientific background at all.
Seems legit.

Evolution has to be a fact

consider the evolutionist's proposition that all of life, all twenty million species of life and all their subsystems and sub-sub systems, originated (says the atheist) from an accidental, random, unpurposed, unplanned conglomeration of chemicals conjoining in a mystical, magical pool of mud, billions of years ago," said author Carl Gallups.

"This pool of mud and its magical mixture has never been observed or replicated ... In over 150 years of human attempts at replicating this accidental process, we have not even come close to doing so - even with OUR intelligent input involved!


Silly WND. It took over 150 years for that "mud" to spawn life. Probably about 250 or even 300 years!

"There is no 'supreme being' in heaven who reached down to create life on Earth or human beings. Nor is that being answering prayers. There is no soul. There is no everlasting life. Science tells us all of these things with complete clarity. God is imaginary."

Bullshiat. Scientists don't even pursue those lines of investigation.

Just once, I'd like to hear from a Creationist who actually understands science. But, if they did they probably wouldn't be Creationists.

This is a great post from John Doe, I am going to repost it.

It is God the almighty that is behind all that and created it so perfect.
Should we also thank God for the perfection of cancer cells, autism, cerebral palsy, polio, malaria, meningitis, spina bifida, tetanus, and a whole host of other diseases and infections?
What about parasites, tapeworms, ticks, fleas, lice, and poisonous plants?
How about earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flash floods, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves, droughts, pestilence, land slides, and other natural disasters?
Are these too a sign of God's perfect creation?

Again, in my book, I scientifically, logically, irrefutably, and historically PROVE the existence of God. Even the ardent atheist will have a difficult time refuting the evidence with any academic plausibility at all.

I'm guessing it is going to rather easy to refudiate anything in this book.

Unless it's all a scam and he wrote one of those quickie celebrity "bios" with lots of "God's friend said 'God had raging acne all through high school. He had to take Mother Nature to the prom, but He swore that once he spent that summer in Canada he'd be able to smite chicks all over."

Whole lotta stupid right there.

While I am an atheist and therefore one of the "the beginnings of life did occur through a bunch of happy accidents occurring over BILLIONS of years" guys...

a) even I believe that we have a "soul" of sorts
b) most of the truly devout people I know(not the screaming fundies) are in the "God set the process in motion, and evolution took over, hell, it's God, you don't know the whole plan"

This guy is an idiot

Despite the constant, deliberate, repeated attempts of humans to recombine their DNA to produce new humans, the magical mixture of DNA that was Adam has never been observed or replicated, therefore there was no progenitor human, and humans don't exist.

Even morons who are Bible literalists believe in evolution. If you believe in something as ridiculous as the Noah's Ark story you believe that Noah gathered each "type" of animal. Meaning one type of dog, one type of lizard, etc. The mechanism under which each type turned out different animals such as coyote & beagle, iguana & alligator would be...wait for it....evolution.

It doesn't matter what you believe.
It doesn't matter how hard you pray.
It doesn't matter if every person in the world decides that human kind emerged from the radioactive poop of a flying space turtle.

Evolution is independent of belief. It has happened, it is happening, and it will continue to happen and none of us can stop it. We can only hope to tweak the parameters.

I read through that who stupid article, and all I saw was an argument from personal incredulity.

That is, because Carl Gallups can't conceive of something, a god must have done it.

I also loved this gem from Gallups: "this notion that somehow the Christian is dedicated to a belief in a magic man in the sky is nothing more than a straw man argument fallaciously set up by the atheist. My book systematically exposes and demolishes this straw man argument."

I would love -- just LOVE -- to hear him explain how that argument is a straw man. I'd love to hear how he "systematically exposes and demolishes" it.

You can dress up your theology all you want, Pastor Gallups -- but if you believe in creationism, you believe in magic. If you believe in a god, you believe in a magic man. Maybe he's not "in the sky." Maybe he's on Titan. Maybe he's in France. Maybe he's not even a "he." But, your view of our existence absolutely hinges on magic. To argue otherwise is patently absurd.

evolution is the absence of rational thought...its a racist atheist fairy tale, with no evidence to support it. nothing in the lab, nor in the fossil record.

how hard is my response about antibiotics? bacteria didn't recently acquire an ability to resist antibiotics...its ancient...look it up...and what you call 'evolution' isn't...the bacteria is still a bacteria...and anti-biotic resistance typically results in a loss of specifcy, function, in the bacteria itself.

you do know neanderthals were stronger than we are, and had a larger brain...devolution is more like it, not evolution.

how can lions and tigers be different species when they can mate and produce offspring? hmmmmm?? I look forward to your non-answer to this, just like your non-answer to everything else I've posted.

the bible says how they 'collected' the species...the animals came themselves..duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

at least the bible has evidence to back it up...archeology supports it...unlike that racist atheist fairy tale known as evolution.

no my evidence proves evolution is racist to the core....different populations in isolation evolve differently thats evolution...how hard is this? ..ever hear of eugenics? yeah thats just applied evoluiton...and eugenics led to the gas chambers of nazi germany...and evolution is behind it.....

evolution says we 'just happened' so there is no God...its totally atheistic, provine is right. evolution is atheism disguised as science.

actually evolution could be more accurately described as Darwin did it! for example, you cannot list the mutations that led to the eye, yet you believe the eye evolved.....faith.

so in other words you don't know how the sexes evolved at the same time....why bother at all since hermaphroditic reproduction is so much easier, takes less energy, don't have to fight for mates, etc....so list all of those 'intermediate stages' should be good....


I hope you all learned something. I could read whoknows99's comments all day!

Evolution through natural selection?

If you've seen a way that a person can believe the Bible is literally true (not allegorically or figuratively) and square that will evolution through natural selection, I'd love to see it. I mean, it's hard to believe that animals evolved at the same time you believe the Genesis account that on the sixty day of creation "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
