Oh, so NOW Penn State is studying DNA. Shoulda taken a couple of samples years ago.

show me: No, natural selection would be to select the two most encyclopedia-like objects out of all of them, mixing their best features, reproducing them billions of times, and starting the process over again.

I can't say I've really tried, but I've never heard of someone getting two encyclopedias to mate. And you neo-Darwinists call my beliefs magic!

mainstreet62: show me: mainstreet62: meat0918: This implies creation.

The hell it does, idiot.

I think there is a lot of sarcasm/trolling in this thread and a lot of people are not getting it.

I am admittedly terrible at not getting sarcasm on Fark.

Poe, poe you.

sprawl15: abb3w: So, how long until we get a serious "therefore, creationism instead of evolution" argument presented in this thread?

If necessary I can break out the old Volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica argument.

Can you do the "shaking a bag of watch parts"? That's my favorite.

Well DNA cannot function without hundreds of preexisting proteins, but proteins are produced only at the direction of DNA. Because each needs the other, a satisfactory explanation for the origin of one must also explain the origin of the other. Therefore, the components of these manufacturing systems must have come into existence simultaneously.  This implies creation.

except that that is completely not how evolution works. so either you are a troll, completely ignorant, or both
we need sarcasm punctuation !!

I forgot the sarcastic picture, trying again.

Take a little doubt, add in some incredulity, multiply by "scientists have been wrong before" and voila!

You've created an evolution "skeptic".
