Yeah, myths about a mythical flood, so what?
Prove it. I have heard this general "every culture has a global flood myth" for a long time. Prove it.
I bet you can't show us 10 flood myths.
There is no evidence that there has ever been a global flood. There is absolutely no evidence that there has been a global flood in the last 10,000 years or indeed since humans evolved.

Wickless, why are you dumping all this religion stuff into a science forum, especially when it has absolutely nothing to do with any discussion of science and especially with any discussion of evolution?
This is the part that has always puzzled me about creationists.
They believe all this vague mythical crap in the bible,
but spend a crazy amount of time trying to twist science,
and everything we already know,
to support the just plain stupid notion that the physical evidence we can see,
and that looks like it is the result of billions of years of natural, normal physical processes,
is really the result of 6,000 years of those same natural, normal physical processes.
Like candle, they all spout this religious mumbo-jumbo, but they don't really want to just say their "creation" is just FLASH>>>A MIRACLE!!!, instead they want it to have left physical evidence that they can point to as "proof", in their mistaken understanding of what science is and how it works.
For reasons that can only be understood by a creationist, they and the whole belief system they have immersed their lives in feel imperiled by evolution, it absolutely terrifies them.
If they just said it was a miracle, those of us who don't believe in miracles and who do use science would say, oh ok, and let them sort it out amongst themselves, but they are saying none of the science stuff we are learning is true AND that we are lying about it.
And the evidence, in every field of science just keeps building. Hundreds of different specialized branches of science all find evidence supporting the fact that all life on this planet today is the result of thousands of millions (billions) of years of evolution.
Candle and his cult won't look at or listen to the evidence, but none of them has conducted research that produces evidence to support any of their strawman attacks on evolution and certainly no evidence to support the biblical myths.

Then you weren't paying attention!
All those scientists know that all those other branches of science have evidence that supports evolution,

And amazingly it all fits together seamlessly, all of it!
There is only one reason all that evidence supports the same conclusion, from all those different independent fields, and that is because it's true, evolution explains all life and its long history.

Without even a tiny smidgen of transitional
fossils some evolutionists are now looking
at the possibility of punctuated equilibrium,
which is basically rapid change.
Nope, sorry but that is not true. The museums are full of thousands and thousands of transitional fossils. You guys just never, ever read the scientific journals where those fossils are reported and described and named.
Punctuated Equilibrium has been known to be part of the Theory of Evolution since Gould and Eldredge published the first paper formally describing it 50 years ago.
Punctuated Equilibrium has nothing to do with rapid change, but rather explains sudden appearance of specific fossils in the fossil record at specific locations.
Do you seriously think we are going to defend your strawman views of evolution, punctuated equilibrium, geological dating, or fossil formation?
candt2 writes:
In all recorded history neither of these two
views has been observed.
You are incorrect again. That's because you are looking for the wrong things because you don't know what Punctuated Equilibrium is.
Once again, you never, ever even look at the journals where observations of evolution are reported, so you cannot support your false assertions.
You should be embarrassed at the level of your ignorance.

Yes, I do understand what you said and I am saying that it is incorrect, because you mischaracterize what PE represents, and that shows that you don't know what you are talking about.
I do occasionally look over fossils, but there
are no transitional fossils.
That sounds like a porky. I bet you would not be able to identify a single fossil without a label, so how could you possibly know what a transitional fossil looks like?
candy2 writes:
If evolution were true, there would by necessity
be hundreds of millions of transitional fossils.
Well you can pull this kind of crap out of your ass as much as you want, but what makes you an authority on how many fossils there should be?
If Darwin were alive today and was able to see
the complexity of the simple cell, he would feel
like a complete fool.
Your reasoning on everything else has been shown to be flawed so I wouldn't expect your prediction have any validity either.
First off, I imagine he would be quite surprised and feel lucky to have lived so long and learned so much. And he would be amazed and proud of the progress we have made in understanding biology and confirming evolution.
candy2 writes:
And, after all these decade and still no transitional

Naw, he would be like a kid in a candy store and he would be saddened to see the childish lengths you creationists will go to, to continue deluding yourselves.

Re: Questions for candle2
So candle2 must present that evidence for creation! No creationist has ever done so, nor has ever even attempted it.
It is painfully obvious that there is absolutely NO evidence for creation, so they will never be able to present anything. And it is also obvious that everyone who believes the creationist crap do not have the intellect to even come up with imaginary evidence that would convince a 9 year old (I use 9 year old, because by that time almost all kids realize Santa Claus is imaginary) that divine creation is really a thing.

Imagine that; perhaps over 8,000,000 different types

Repeating your lies has not made any of the millions of transitional fossils in museums around the planet disappear. It just makes you look like an incredibly stupid liar.

Everyone keeps telling you that is not evolution!
Everyone keeps telling you that is not what the Theory of Evolution says!
Everyone keeps telling you that that is not how evolution happens.
No one is ever going to show you any proof of that, because that never happens.

Oh gosh, it turns out Spirit Lake is not a global flood and real observable science, that you cited, proves you incorrect about global floods and fossils and geology.
You have no supporting evidence whatsoever and the polluting presuppositions are all yours.

It does not tell us everything, which is great, because it keeps us exploring and experimenting and discovering new evidence.
It just keeps adding up. Little discoveries in every field of science. New evidence, and it always supports evolution, every single time.
