    That defense won’t work. Turns out the chimp DNA is nowhere near as similar as evolutionists, in their haste to shore up their failed hypothesis, initially claimed.

    @ exoticdoc2: No, but if there are a million MEN that share that DNA (which is about as accurate as can be measured), then there’s a 999,999/1,000,000 chance that he’s innocent.

    BTW, was “exoticdoc” taken already?

    Quite true. When they went to sequence it, they gave up after running into more than 50,000 differences between human and chimp DNA right off the bat.
    That is a natural result of the irrational assumption of “chimps and humans have 98% of the same DNA” that got started more than a quarter century ago. One can’t just assume something like that, particularly given the large anatomical differences between humans and chimps, such as a 5:1 greater ratio of muscle to bone mass, brain configuration differences, prehensile toes on the feet, etc.
    The lack of any interim stage between humans and chimps that has human-like qualities is one of the main problems with evolution, particularly as no other interim stages have been found. Plenty of species similar to each other in the fossil record, but the usual “interim” is a grasping at straws, rather like acting as if a robin is a pregenitor of a cowbird sort of thing. If the same methods used on fossils were used on humans, more than 7 billion “species” of humans would exist as any difference at all is frequently used to claim something is a different species or an interim species.
    One of the more interesting things that happened with the initial Human Genome project was that the lead geneticist saw how ordered and planned out the DNA was. It wasn’t something that could be created by random chance. He started asking questions and became a Christian. Can’t remember his name at the moment, unfortunately.

    The new “Cosmos” episode “Some of the Things That Molecules Do” was pretty good. You guys should check it out.

    It always made me laugh when I heard people make that false DNA claim. Even if it were true, the difference that one extra chromosome makes in humans should have been enough to convince people that a 2% difference in the whole DNA structure between two species would demonstrate that evolution is a failed theory. I wish more evolutionists would understand how Darwin and others tried to use the evolution to back up their racist views.

    I gave up on “Cosmos”. The music was so loud I had trouble understanding what was being said.

    The chimps are wondering who’s the real murderous banana-eating primate.

    Your client is a banana eating primate??

    Riiiiiiight, the creation of the universe by a giant sky fairy makes much more sense than the Scientific Theory of Evolution.

    Key word, THEORY.

    I find it fascinating, amusing and a little bit frightening that a simple cartoon like this raises so much ire in the creationist community. Not too sure of yourselves, are you? You can quibble over some of the technical details of how evolution works – and scientists do, openly – and if you ultimately don’t choose to accept it as scientifically valid, that’s your right. Of course it would be nice if you really studied the matter enough to understand what it is you’re choosing to reject.

    What you can’t quibble with is that science and creationism approach the subject from two very different perspectives. Science tries to learn and understand how things work from the available, observable evidence. If new evidence arises that modifies scientific thinking, so be it. Science isn’t wedded to a particular theory or version of events. Science has no agenda.

    Creationism, by comparison, has an agenda: it says that the Holy Book’s version of events is the only true and correct explanation. This drives creationists to find evidence to support that agenda, and to ignore huge bodies of evidence that would not support it.

    Too bad we can’t simply agree to leave science to the scientists and the schools and religion to the churches. Then we could stop having these silly – and ultimately pointless – debates.

    Here’s a link to a really good discussion of the subject (for the open-minded):

    But what if there really are things beyond the Shire from which we have been sheltered all these years? Things that defy all reason and use the laws of the universe in ways we cannot imagine to do things that we cannot accept as real?
    But fear not, and sleep tight, for I have measured all that is in the universe and there is nothing that I do not know. [wink]
