davidB, I've given you all the evidence you need.  If you want to doubt it, be my guest.  The evidence is overwhelmingly on my side.  You're backing the wrong horse.  Hopefully you'll understand the theory better in future.

"Just because a plant accidentally doubled its chromosomes and began to reproduce doesn't mean it evolved."

You're right.  What proves it evolved is all the other evidence on top of that.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

Sorry, I forgot how it went exactly; they have more than 23 pairs. They have 47 chromosomes.

Sorry, evolution is based on a lot of assumptions, and that's all I can see when I look at it. The BSC appears to ben an ambitious arm of science. We can agree to disagree. Hopefully the ridiculous attacks against religion can stop now that there's been a rational discussion on the subject.

That is basically having an extra 21st chromosome, not having an entirely new pair.

You haven't refuted anything I've said or any of the sources.  Gravity is based on "assumptions".  You are confusing a logical inference with an assumption.

We can agree to disagree.  You're welcome to believe what you want to believe, but until you actually try and refute the evidence, your assertions have no substance.  You are opposing something that is ingrained in science and is accepted by about 99.99% of biologists.

I'm very tired now.  I've been at this for 10 pages.

No, I think your view of anyone who doesn't take your view - like people who believe in religion - is very narrow.

The only reason you say that is because I was expressing my anti-religious opinion. I never expressed intolerance. All I did was give arguments, just like you, I never said anything personal. Nor did I 'condemn' anyone who was religious.
You do realise that calling me narrow-minded isn't so open-minded of yourself?

And another thing, my best friend's dad raised his children according to a religion I don't support. My favourite football players practise Islam. Yes, I'm narrow-minded. Rolling Eyes I expected more from you.

It's the Darwin season on the BBC!

The first TV programme will be, 'What Darwin Didn't Know', which airs on 26 January, 9pm BBC Four.

In 1859, Darwin gave us a bold and brilliant idea - evolution by natural selection. But there was so much he did not - could not - know about the workings of evolution. Ever since, other scientists have held his ideas up to scrutiny, and tried to fill in the gaps in evolution theory.

Evolutionary biologist Armand Leroi charts 150 years of scientific endeavour and explores the fall, renaissance and ultimate triumph of Darwin's ideas.

Science doesn't require faith.  In science we follow the evidence.  Faith by its very definition is irrational.  If it was rational it wouldn't be called faith.

Are you calling me irrational if I believe in something then?

If it goes against the available evidence, yes.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Had to laugh at this. There's no one quite like oh-so-tolerant and caring religious people (and left-wingers) for suddenly becoming highly intolerant when someone expresses a world view that doesn't quite chime with theirs.

This is what made me laugh Nigel......Coldmarek continuing a discussion and quoting a comment that was made over 4 years ago, as though it was posted only yesterday!  lmao
