You convinced an uneducated mother that she is related to monkeys?
It's sufficient to visit a zoo to prove that humans are closely related to apes.
Truly, who could look into these eyes and not feel the spark of kinship? You'd have to be some kind of psychopath. I don't understand how creationists can go to the zoo and not leave convinced of the truth of evolution. I've never been able to understand that.
I am impressed really, that you actually had the nerve to try to brag about confusing the hell out of a woman who was probably perfectly content believing there was a loving caring God out there looking out for her and her children.
I missed the part in Glowby's story where he convinced the single mom to become an atheist. Can you identify that part by quoting the relevant passage? Otherwise it seems like you're criticizing him for something that he didn't actually do.

If the images are pure fiction why don't the scientists admit it.
Admit what?
Did somebody say that was an actual photograph of hominid evolution, or something? I don't think anybody expects you to accept a hand-penciled drawing as anything but an illustration of a concept.

Re: on shared (synapomorphies) and derived (apomorphies) features
Funny, because evidence shows that humans who manage to live beyond 110 begin to grow new teeth.
No, it doesn't.

Your evidence is...

Serious dude - it just came on local TV news here in West Bengal, India. They even showed an interview of the family of this lady.
a second-hand report of a TV show? And how come you're ignoring the much-more reasonable explanation by the original poster:
quote:
Both my parents are dental surgeons and I asked them about it - what my dad says is that there's this situation called impacted tooth - where the tooth had come out in the normal cycle - but never managed to make it way out of the jawbones through the gum. Teeth like these remain hidden for extensively long periods - sometimes they never come out.. and sometimes they just pop-out one fine day, at a very late age.
So, no. Old people don't start to regenerate teeth.
