There is no such statement there.
The only post from me on page 1311 is concerning Stephen Meyer.
Again, post where I said that reincarnation is a scientifically proven fact.
Or admit you lied.
(I already know you lied)
Wow, maybe it is some sort of mass delusion, because I am pretty sure you claim that there is 'scientific evidence for reincarnation'.

Of course, that is a stupid statement, hey Buckster?

The trouble with the Big Bang is that it implies a creator.
So we know it cannot be real science.
Big Bang Theory is religion.
Haven't you read your own posts?
Can you only read Mexican now?
Wow.

'Evolution has no theoretical framework'

'Astrology is a valid scientific theory'

'Big Bang implies a creator'

Dammit Buck.

I am pretty aware of the low intellectual standards you set. I am pretty aware of how little you know of the topics you discuss. But damn... You stepped it up a notch.

'Theory' has many applications. We are interested in the scientific one.
That was from a biology research journal.

Your ass is handed to you.

You are reduced to wisecracks.

It's an interesting study - what Darwinists do when I prove them wrong. Imam IAnus responds by saying he lost interest. Hiding responds by changing her statements and denying she made the original one. You respond with wisecracks which you think are funny, but are not at all.

Another psychological observation. You guys on here cannot compete with the likes of Michael Behe or myself, either intellectually or scientifically. So you have to resort to non-substantive ridicule. I might read up on the science of psychology to determine what pathology makes you do that. I might be able to help you.

I am open to a substantive, relevant response to the demonstration of Behe being correct on all points at Kitzmiller.

Be aware, if it is a lie or a wisecrack, as is your habit, I will likely not respond, since I have owned you in these exchanges.

And you never thanked me for providing a valid falsification for whale lineage, which you obviously could not do.

Very happy Birthday to Nelson Mandela!

In SA, we celebrate his birthday/legacy by donating 67 minutes to public service, be it working at a soup kitchen for the homeless, visiting cancer patients, or simply picking up garbage in the neighbourhood.

That was during the Devonian extinction - one of the mass extinctions.

Evolution seems to go into overdrive at the brink of chaos, methinks.

You see the same with other extinctions:

- Devonian extinction brought forth Tiktaalik, meaning kingdom Animalia conquered the land

- Permian/Triassic brought forth Archosaurs as the dominant species

- Triassic/Jurassic extinction brought forth the dominance of the dinosaurs

- K-T extinction brought forth the reign of social animals, mammalia

What I said:

'scientific evidence for reincarnation'

What she said I said:

'reincarnation is a scientifically proven fact'

Double Dumb, do you notice any difference in these two statements?

I know you claimed that every different definition of theory means the same thing, except for Behe's. Maybe this explains it.

But even you should see this distinction.

Darwinism requires that the eye formed unguided and independently at least 40 times. In the study of statistics, the chance of that happening is far beyond what is agreed to be impossible.

But it's considered scientific fact.

You have a god need that deforms your thinking. What you consider impossible is anything that challenges that. Your uncorroborated data and conclusions cannot be trusted.

The scientists and mathematicians not only say that unguided evolution is possible, but also that there is no evidence for anything else.

Sorry to be the one to have to tell you this again, but nobody's arguing these issues except theists. The educated skeptics are mostly in agreement: the theory of evolution is correct in the main, and theistic objections are dishonest, and can be ignored.

You people don't seems to care about anything except justifying your god delusions. You don't care what damage you do in the process. You've set up think tanks to generate your propaganda and to inculcate it into young minds, and America is now a laughingstock, Hidingfromyou's evolution students hearing about Americans, to Behe featured on the Nova special on Kitzmiller, the world sees what American Christianity is doing to American children. You might as well just hit them in the head with a club.

Buck, honestly, there is nothing to gain from any argument with you. The only reson I do so, is because I have large parts of slow going at work (some of it simple procrastination).

The fact is, it is impossible to have any argument with you, about anything related to natural science.

Your affirming of really stupid ideas such as 'Astrology is a valid theory','whale evolution has been falsified without fossil evidence','Big Bang implies a creator''Evolution has no framework' etc only shows that either 1) You are just as bored as us and trying to kill the time by making stupid arguments, or 2) you really have no idea what you are talking about.

I don't really care to enter those discussions with you, much like I don't care to engage the man at the old age home about his claims that he was taken away by a space ship.

I resort to wisecracks, because when someone like you is trying to present a scientific argument, it is kind of like watching a monkey fuck a doorknob.

I made no claim that unguided evolution is NOT possible.

And statistics is not a religious field.

You are arguing the issue, albeit poorly and incompetently, but claim it is only argued by theists.

You are incoherent.

Yes.

Archæology rocks. No pun intended.
