True writing, in which the entire meaning of an utterance could be written down symbolically to be reconstructed later, evolved in about 3200 BC in Sumer; it may have evolved independently in China also. So recorded history is not possible before that..

Modern humans are supposed to have evolved between 150,000 and 200,000 years ago, not billions of years.

There is ample evidence of an old earth and evolution.

Because writing (and paper-making/preserving) had not been fully developed before then?

The cave paintings at Lascaux in France are dated to 17,300 years ago.

How could they have made those detailed works of art 11,000 years BEFORE your Jesus (supposedly) said "POOF!" and created the earth? LOL!

Modern human only began to evolved from earlier bi-pedal apes about 2.5 million years ago. And they had little to no scientific knowledge (i.e. about Vitamin C) for most of that time.

Nothing ironic about it. Sailors on long sea voyages without fruit were noticed to come down with scurvy which was cleared up when they landed and ate fruit. From, there, our knowledge of the benefits of Vit. C began.

The only people who claim this are Christian fundamentalist nutjobs who are working an agenda.

Interesting. You not only still avoided addressing your mistakes or any of our posts, you still didn't apologize for lying, you moved onto something else, and rejected science in its entirety while you were at it.

Hint - the age of the Earth has nothing to do with biology, but chemistry and physics.

So uh, God still tell you it's okay to lie in Jesus' name then?(shrug)

In a way there is, to a degree. The oldest cave paintings are 40,000 years old at minimum. So I guess the first human cave painters were astronauts 34,000 years before God decided to make the Earth.

Can't get much dumber than fundie YEC literalism.

If evolution was "real" then plant life, insect life, aquatic&#65279; life, and land mammalian life would all be on a different evolutionary development timeline, meaning that some organism somewhere on Earth would currently be in the process of undergoing some sort of drastic "macroevolutionary" transformation into a radically different form of life. Its rather funny that NO SCIENTIST has ever observed such a transformation anywhere on Earth at any point in time in the recorded history of Biology. Why is this? Because evolution is IMPOSSIBLE.

Sorry, but you're flawed knowledge of the theory of evolution cannot be used to disprove it. All life is evolving all of the time. The changes are all very small but they add up. There is no such thing as macroevoluiton and microevolution, there is only evolution.

Your claim that evolution is impossible is akin to saying that you cannot get to one million by adding tenths to a number. Creationist thinking 1 is not 1,000,000. 1 +.1 is not 1,000,000 even 1 +.1+.1 +.1 is not 1,000,000 there fore no matter how many .1's you add to 1 you cannot get to 1,000,000. Someone who understands the theory of evolution would disagree and point out that you need 9,999,990 tenths added to 1 to get to 1,000,000.

Small changes over time equal big changes.
