    Was the very first human so different from the modern one that he was no longer a human? No, because he was the first Human. In short: he was a human. Conclusion: the evolution of mankind did not happen.

    Definition of humankind: a human gives birth to a human. Has Darwin an alternative definition?
    If the changes are so severe, that the first human is in no way similar to the modern human, then he is not a human.

    I demand respect.

    If Bob does not give oxygen to Alice, it is murder. If John does not give respect to Steve, it is disrespect?

    Respect, being God's name, is in origin. Respect and Love can get lost. For example, God of Love does not love Adolf Hitler and satan.
    There are two sources only: evil spirit (satan), and Holy Spirit (God).

    Once again... see my avatar? Completely human yet we have evolved in the last 22000 years to have a lighter bone structure and smaller skull to house a smaller brain.

    And that is just 22000 years. See what happens 7 million years

    No you don't, you have an uninformed idea that suites your confirmation bias.

    The fossil record is not going to change because you don't agree with it. The copious genetic evidence is not going to change because you don't agree with it. The observational evidence is not going to change because you don't agree with it.

    Your definition of 'proof' varies from mine.

    Depends on drawing a totally arbitrary line between 'human' and 'almost human' in what is actually a continuum. It's rather like asking on what day somebody became 'old'.

    According to some totally arbitrary criterion.

    Non sequitur.

    No you don't. Logic really isn't your strong suit, is it?

    Then Evolution is an illogical thing.

    And logic doesn't change because you don't agree with it.

    Each and every time birth is achieved, the results vary from the parent some small amount. You at least MUST admit to this. You must. It is observable, undeniable, impossible to get around without being completely irrational (which, believe me, I know you are willing to do).

    So, take that small, almost insignificant amount of change and multiply it by 10,000 generations. Do you honestly think that the "human" that comes out of that 10,000th birth will be extremely similar to the human who first gave birth in the line? Do you honestly believe that a series of small changes 10,000 times over cannot result in big change when comparing #1 to #10,000? Talk about being illogical. YOU are illogical if you can't understand and accept this SIMPLISTIC idea.

    Your definition of "logical disproof" is a joke -- it is, literally, laughable -- so much so that it is very difficult to know where to begin, or even if engaging is worth the effort.

    But let's pretend that it is. So, do me a favor:
    • read Wikipedia: Human Evolution ... all of it.
    • make a good faith effort to understand all the words.
    • try to understand and appreciate the thousands upon thousands of hours of scientific scholarship and methodological expertise spanning multiple disciplines and balance it against your current level of understanding
    and then, perhaps, we can have something approximating an informed discussion.

    Was the first telephone so different from the modern one that it was no longer a telephone? No, because it was the first telephone. In short: it was the first telephone. Conclusion: Evolution of the telephone did not happen.

    Everything you've posted here that claimed to be a proof and that I've bothered to look into, was no such thing.

    You've also ignored the point here, which is that evolution happens in tiny steps and there is no strict dividing line between 'human' and 'almost human' unless you arbitrarily make one up.

    I'm going to let you in on a little secret that most "humans" already know. Respect is something that is earned from others, not something that is demanded of others.
