Actually Evolution Can Be Defined As Losing And Gaining Because a creatures evolution would want to lose bad traits and replace them with better ones.Thus Evolution is a process of Losing Bad Traits And enhancing good ones and if you want A good Example of Modern Evolution one merely has to look at Insects Such as Butterflies To see rapid changes in their wing designs.Also you should probably change the name of This from Big Daddy it has nothing to do with Big Daddies from Bioshock. Also if I may Suggest A Name for This I would Call it "Bible Reader calmly Explains Things while Professor Acts Like A total Fanatic How Ironic".
There are NOT six basic concepts of evolution. It explains the origin of species and nothing more. Nebraska Man fooled no one in the scientific community. The image was commissioned by a magazine not directly affiliated with any scientific journal, and was quickly debunked after publishing. Gills are just one feature (I personally wouldn't use them as an argument because they aid breathing in the womb). The drawings are fraud, but they're not used as a reference point anymore. And it's not just human embryos. Many animal embryos have extraordinary similarities. Just because muscles attach to the tailbone doesn't mean it isn't vestigial. Those pelvises in the whales may not be useless, but it doesn't mean that it hadn't served one purpose earlier then changed it's function. Losing something is NOT the opposite of evolution. It's a key part of the process. Atoms have nothing to do with evolution.
Is is disquieting how many favorable comments there are about this tract. The information it presents is not correct, and extremely out of date. Lying for Jesus is still lying, and sadly creationists will go to any lengths to push their beliefs. It speaks to a lack of quality education that some young people today have little or no critical thinking skills. Instead of regurgitating creationist pap, at the minimum, do a google search on, for examples, piltdown man, and nebraska man(facepalm). Science moves forward, and corrects mistakes, religion repeats the same fallacies over and over again. Hopefully "stupidevolution" and those like him will eventually mature enough to investigate the truth for themselves, and not just stay with the "god dun it" option. At 16 you know nothing..live long enough and you will realize how little any of us know for certain, but have attained enough wisdom to know that the search for truth is never ending, and not wrapped in a neat little package like a Jack Chick tract. If there is a God, or gods even, no doubt he/it/they shake their heads, if they possess such things, at the arrogance of portions of humanity who dare to think they know, or understand the mind of a deity, and that their gift of intelligence is so blatantly, and willfully squandered. I will not attempt to point out your flawed understanding of basic biological principles, or just how DNA works.. etc.. there are thousands of publications written by competent scientists that guide the curious to an unbiased understanding of such things. Ignorance of how the world really works is not bliss, it is self inflicted mental stagnation/retardation. smh
I'm sorry, but I did some research and I couldn't find any reference saying that Lucy was just a chimpanzee, if this was the case then she wouldn't be classified under the genus "Ausralopithecus" but under "Pan" like all the other chimpanzee species. And her pelvis as well as fossils of other members of her kind show that A. afarensis was very well adapted for bipedal walk, unlike any chimpanzee. The supposedly 212 million year old human skull turned out to be, after more advanced dating methods have been used on the rock, a 2 million year old skull of an earlier genus. This also explains why I couldn't find any article about an supposedly over 200 million year old human skull, which would naturally attract quite some attention, wouldn't it? The dating of rocks and the dating of fossils are two independent processes, otherwise we couldn't know the age of rock layers where no fossils have been found, which are actually very rare. Neither the human tail bone nor the whales pelvis are vestigial... so what? One aspect of evolution is that organs, which once had a purpose but would seem useless now, change over time and get recycled into something else, according to what the organism needs for its current anatomy and lifestyle. The human tail for example once helped us keeping balance during climbing, over time it got reduced to what now helps us keeping our inner organs in place and is crucial for bipedal walking.
To make is short, the author of this comic clearly doesn't know what he is talking about.
Whoa there! You're not supposed to do research!! You're supposed to accept this as true! Just accept it. don't prove it. Just accept. And buy. Buy the books, the DVDS, the pamphlets, donate to creationist institutions, pay entry to the Creation Museum. Just anything but this "research" you talk of!
There is no point to life without free will, God knows that better then anyone. If we were all made perfect then we would be just robots not truly living. This world is mean to be a testing ground if we choose to fail in one way or another that is our own problem not God's.
Also off topic this comic is bullshit on so many levels. It is clear that the creation story is metaphorical.
That just described my physics professor when I was in middle school. He also was upset when someone mention him "God". As ex-athist, I'm laughing at those who desperatelly want to prove God's non-existance.
I am putting this on my FaceBook this is something MOST of my friends need to see and when I think science is everything I think the big bang theory and when I think that I think what did the meteor hit Yeah you science geniouses what did it hit?
