Look, I'm not really interested in getting into this too deep because you guys really aren't interested in discussing it. If you want to do some more research on your on check out heat shock proteins and chaperones and the AMES test and then think about how quickly environmental changes occur in relation to mutation rates.
The reason why this is scary is because, to be perfectly honest, the current theory has no good mechanistic explanations for evolution and no one wants to admit that. Evolution is no longer science it is dogma because of the perceived threat from ID/creationism. Under current conditions there can be no dissent because that would offer a weakness to the enemy and right now defeating the enemy is more important than scientific integrity. This, of course, will change when enough evidence is amassed to offer a more complete mechanism to replace RM seamlessly and the enemy then will have no weakness to exploit. In other words, right now it is about politics but one day it will actually be about science again.
Someone here certainly isn't interested in discussing anything, but its not us.
Keep feeding your martyr complex and denying reality, though.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
