      More of your "original" thinking, I see.

      I'd bet you haven't had an original thought in a 'coon's age.

        P.S. FYI, just in case y'all hadn't noticed, Jor's final sentence is an example of his mastery of projection.

          A rock which was assumed to be 'Precambrian' has been misdated according to scientists.
          "We know the rock cannot be "Precambrian" because of its traces of bunny rabbit fossilization, and we know mammals did not exist in the Precambrian...

                the word "compelling" is SUFFICIENT.

                IF the any evidence convinced me Jesus never ascended to 'Heaven',
                then why would I bother with the Bible anymore.

                I could just go back to where I left off and assume my 'born-again' event was just some delusion.
                Continued avoidance it is then.

                    What's dishonest about reminding you of a question that you refused to answer in the past?

                    It's annoying to you of course, but definitely NOT "dishonest".

                    Does a drooling adherence to a risible Genesis interpretation cause one to misunderstand common words?

                    If so, it helps to explain lots of wacky Jorgian YEC logic.

                      JR,

                      Do you have an explanation for why a Cambrian Coney has never be found?

                      A fortiori, what's the YEC Bible God "History not Science" explanation for no pollen in the geologic column below the Cretaceous? Heck, that's MUCH more likely to be found than a Opossum in the Ordovician.

                      No need for headlines. YEC Bible-God "History not Science" has been dead-as-doorknob since 1800.

                      We might as well have tomorrow's headline be "Beauregard's Artillery Bombards Fort Sumter!"

                      Your Fideist Fantasy thread has been fun though.

                              Ah, yes. Deep dark conspiracy theories to silence The TROOTH™

                              One of the defining attributes that you're supporting a pseudoscience is when you start squawking about plots on the part of the worldwide scientific community to suppress and cover up the results.

                              You ignore the fact that if some scientist were to discover convincing evidence that evolutionary theory was wrong they would go down as one of the great scientists of their time. They could likely count on a Nobel Prize, all the funding that they could ever desire for whatever project struck their fancy and their pick of associates to assist them. Overturning something that everyone else accepts out of hand is just the sort of thing that scientists dream of.

                              Could it be due to the fact that organisms can evolve at different rates is exactly what Darwin predicted?:

                              Source: On The Origin of the Species, First Edition


                              Species of different genera and classes have not changed at the same rate, or in the same degree. In the oldest tertiary beds a few living shells may still be found in the midst of a multitude of extinct forms. Falconer has given a striking instance of a similar fact, in an existing crocodile associated with many strange and lost mammals and reptiles in the sub-Himalayan deposits. The Silurian Lingula differs but little from the living species of this genus; whereas most of the other Silurian Molluscs and all the Crustaceans have changed greatly.


                              Source

                              © Copyright Original Source



                              By the fourth edition Darwin had added that
                              "the periods during which species have undergone modification, though long as measured in years, have probably been short in comparison with the periods during which they retain the same form."

                              So while Darwin definitely generally favored slow and gradual change[1] it should hardly have come to any surprise that rates of evolutionary change will be different for various organisms.










                              1. It should be noted that Darwin did not mean "perfectly smooth" when he wrote of gradual change but instead something more akin to "stepwise" -- with a populations of a species accumulating small changes over long periods of time until a new species was born.

                              I'm always still in trouble again
