    Confusion lol... I was hoping you would bring up Hox; but how does this explain macro evolution? Prevent something from growing doesn't explain how it got there in the first place. This requires a lot more genes in the first place.

    I can appreciate the role religion plays in people's lives; solace and connection to a community, who doesn't want that? But, it's all the other stuff that is just way messed up and leads to so much suffering. How can anyone look at a newborn baby and believe that it comes into this world flawed? That is just beyond me.
    Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.

    Hox genes are an example of replicating sections of DNA. One way you can get "extra" DNA. And then the DNA can mutate. I'm not sure I understand what you're denying/rejecting here. If you want to have a discussion/argument, make your objections clear.

    Hox genes either turn on or turn off an array of other genes; but macro evolution requires the addition of new information and genes, not alternations of existing ones, no matter what they postulate. This is my entire point, which Hox genes did nothing or was even relevant at all to my last post to you.

    Thx, I like you too.



    My only problem with Rich atm, is, when I read through his previous posts he was thoroughly insulting about creationism and asserting that evolution was the only way, yet, when criticism came, he tries to defer to other people as if he wasn't even prepared to back up his own statement. After this, he shows personal incredulity by saying that I am simply not understanding. This is even worse than when creationists try to refute evolution from scripture in the bible.

    Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

    Corinthians 13:4-8

    I revel in being the only one debating from a certain perspective and getting tons of people to debate against me. So much fun. I was getting a little bored with the evolution of Peatarians from an isolated area on this forum, I've barely had any excitement here recently.
