    Americans really are Exceptional.
    God is the person you pray to when you really really want something.
    Then, because you're worthless, he ignores you personally.

    I have been to Arizonia, that state is 50 percent Hispanic.
    Not that it makes any difference, it's nothing but desert scrub for as far to sea.
    Did I mention drought, yep, 99 percent of the state.
    They may not believe evolution but CC is gonna kick there ass.

    So what's the problem. Teach what you have sound evidence for. Take evolution back a ways and the evidence gets less and less.

    The selective call for proof is hilarious.

Rome probably originated as a farming VILLAGE ~1000 BC or so in Bronze Age Italy, but we don't even really know!! We DO know that Rome eventually became a mighty empire, of course.

    The kind of extremely silly argument you're making is analogous to this: because we really don't know very much about the ORIGIN of Rome, by golly, we shouldn't be teaching our children about the HISTORY of Rome!

    You see how STUPID that is, Thor?
    A question you or anyone has an answer to.

    Talking in terms of theory is one thing, stating it as fact is another.

    As for the periodic table, we can see and identify the elements. How they came about is another question. Tell us how the periodic table assembled itself and biology came into existence.
    OK, you have acknowledged that modern humans and Neanderthals are related, because the proof of that IS indeed in our genes. Well, so is the proof that humans are closely related to both chimpanzees and bonobos. Those two species happen to be our closest LIVING relatives. Here, look and see:

    I have no idea what you mean here, Thor. You clearly did not comprehend the analogy I was making with Roman history. I will summarize it again: We know very little about the ORIGIN of Rome, yet we know a great deal about the HISTORY of Rome. The same is true of life: We know very little about the ORIGIN of life, yet we know a great deal about the HISTORY of life------far more than you THINK we know!!

    Yes, the elements are real. SO IS EVOLUTION. We can OBSERVE it. Both in the field, and in the laboratory. To paraphrase Yogi Berra, "You can observe a lot, just by looking." All of our dog breeds are the result of EVOLUTION, Thor. Selective breeding. Darwin understood that. He NOTED in his book, The Origin of Species, that artificial selection was very analogous to natural selection.

    You should really read his book some day, Thor. You would understand this stuff a LOT better, if you did.

    Humans evolving from primates that is reasonable. Take it back to the kingdom, phylum and show the evolution.

    You did not have to. Evolution is the only scientific theory out there. There is no competition. Unless you would like to suggest something ... ?
