- "Gee, since creatures can evolve, that MUST be where WE came from!"
so, there is evolution.... point made. Glad you agree.
So, if you thought god told you to rape and murder your sister you would do it?
I wouldn't, I don't believe in god. Morality does not come from god. It comes from within us. Greeks and romans had morality and they had different gods. Fake pretend gods. like zeus.
In fact I find it offensive that this "God" tries to take credit for the good things I do. I have been a very good and decent person my entire life. Never hit a child. Never raped anyone. Helped my neighbors, Donated money, Many people have told me that I am the most decent person anyone anyone has ever met. For this "god" to take credit for the good things I do is offencive. In fact it's like a con artist trying to rip me off. I spend the winter and the holidays doing kind acts for friends and neighbors, many of them say "oh, what a good christian". I do it because it makes me feel good. But I'm offended this God somehow rips me off of these good acts and tries to take credit for them.
Now I can also start making lists of things done in the name of god that are certainly evil. Genocides, Crusades murders.... I mean, have you heard of 9/11, murder of 3,000 in the name of god? Certainly you will argue... well that is not the same god.... but muslims believe in the same book of abraham you do. the same god is in both books. How about roman catholic priests molesting kids, Jonestown they were christian, Warren Jeffs who was a child molester and did it in the name of god. Rwanda, where roman catholic priests urged the Hutu on. Not a single Nazi was excommunicated by the church for the genocide of the jews, They also seized tons of Mussolini's gold and sided with the Axis powers.. Father Charles Edward Coughlin sat on the radio trying to convince americans to stay out of WW2, to Let the germans purify the jews. Where was this "Morality that only god can give you then" That genocide was certainly motivated in the name of this 'god' you speak of I can go on and on. god gives us morality that is a joke. I'm sure you will say, but that is not my god... those are bad gods. They all follow the same teachings the same books. If this is morality, i'm terrified of you people. If that is the case, God should be banned and shunned from every aspect of everyone's life.
"I suggest you get a haircut, shave off the beard, get a real job, and join the real human race."
I'm quite the clean cut fully employed person. Thank you for this attack on my character ... How moral of you, your belief in god and Jesus is doing well for your Morality and the Goodness in your heart. No worries.... Jesus will forgive you for being an asshole... wait, I thought religion made you a better person, not made excuses for you when you are doing evil. Maybe we have the argument there, commit Genocide, rape, incest... god will forgive. That isn't evil at all(sarcasm).Jan 23, 2013

I know you won't follow it.

This research profile follows Dr. Rosemary Gillespie to Hawaii as she evaluates hypotheses about the evolution of the colorful happy-face spider.
Angling for evolutionary answers: The work of David O. Conover
Human activity has certainly affected our physical environment - but it is also changing the course of evolution. This research profile follows scientist David O. Conover as he investigates the impact of our fishing practices on fish evolution and discovers what happened to the big ones that got away.
Biological warfare and the coevolutionary arms race
The rough-skinned newt looks harmless enought but is, in fact, packed full of one of the most potent neurotoxins known to man. Find out how an evolutionary arms race has pushed these mild-mannered critters to the extremes of toxicity and how evolutionary biologists have unraveled their fascinating story.
Comic strip: Survival of the sneakiest
This comic follows the efforts of a male cricket as he tries to attract a mate, and in the process, debunks common myths about what it means to be evolutionarily "fit."
Fire ants invade and evolve
Understanding the evolution of fire ants may help scientists control the spread of these pests, which have already taken over much of the U.S.!
Interactive investigation: The arthropod story
This interactive investigation delves into the amazing world of the arthropods and examines their success and their evolutionary constraints.
It takes teamwork: How endosymbiosis changed life on Earth
You might be surprised to learn that descendents of an ancient bacterium are living in every cell of your body! Find out how endosymbiosis factored into the evolution of your own cells.
Mantis shrimp shoulder their evolutionary baggage and bluff
Like all organisms, mantis shrimp carry baggage from their evolutionary history. Find out how this baggage has coaxed them into a deadly bluffing game.
Origin of modern humans: Multiregional or out of Africa?
Learn more about your own history from paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson. He describes how and when early humans evolved, Homo sapiens’ ancestors and relatives, and the diverse lines of evidence relating to this history.

Webcast: Selection in action
In lecture two of a four part series, evolutionary biologist David Kingsley discusses how just a few small genetic changes can have a big effect on morphology, using examples from maize, dog breeding, and stickleback fish.
This lecture is available from Howard Hughes' BioInteractive website.
Adaptation: The case of penguins
The process of natural selection produces stunning adaptations. Learn about the history of this concept, while you explore the incredible adaptations that penguins have evolved, allowing them to survive and reproduce in a climate that reaches -60°C!

Evo in the news: Evolution down under
This news brief, from September of 2008, describes an unusual contagious cancer currently decimating Tasmanian devil populations. Learn about the fascinating interplay between the evolution of the devils and the evolution of the disease.
Evo in the news: Got lactase?
The ability to digest milk is a recent evolutionary innovation that has spread through some human populations. This news brief from April 2007 describes how evolution has allowed different human populations to take advantage of the nutritional possibilities of dairying.
Evo in the news: Musseling in on evolution
This news brief, from September 2006, reviews a recent case of evolution in action. In just 15 years, mussels have evolved in response to an invasive crab species. Find out how biologists uncovered this example of evolution on double time.

Global warming increasingly affects many aspects of our environment—from the sea level to tropical storm strength. But that’s far from the full story. This news brief from July 2006 describes how global warming has already begun to affect the evolution of several species on Earth.

Have some evidence for god? Something besides rainbows and rainy days and mondays?Jan 23, 2013
- Eric Davis appears to fear creationism entering the classroom more than anything else in the universe....hmmm.Apr 29, 2013
- I fear ignorance entering the school. I don't know about you but I hear it is a place to learn things. Science in science class and seminary in the church.
I guess that is complicated.
Some seem to want CIvics taught in shop class.... or something. Sounds like the province of the stupid.
When this is considered seems like maybe there is a reason US students are falling behind.
Math taught in math
Science taught in science
I guess that is too hard.Apr 29, 2013
- Evolution is not true ... If so and all the planets spun into place how come mars is spinning backwards ...... And if so and chemical combined and made all of our earth and space how were chemicals there anyway ..... These show signs of a creator God , Jesus , the only one who could have created all of this it wasn't just by accident . I will leave u thinking with that .Nov 24, 2013
- yes but evolution isn't where WE come from.Nov 24, 2013
