    You might look at this:

    The Evolution of Vertebrate Blood clotting

    Hint: it helps to look at the different blood clotting cascades that actually exist in animals today.

    Don't worry, I'll understand whatever math you care to dish out.

    Here's my bet: you falsely assume independence of steps that are known NOT to be independent.

    Wow, you are going to stick with that?

    Did god ever kill babies or order them to be kill?

    Try Genesis 7 & 8. If the (global) Flood was true, then god killed all the children including babies that weren’t in the Ark.

    If you want to know when god ordered babies to be kill, then read 1 Samuel 15:3, when the prophet Samuel ordered Saul to have Amalekites to be killed, including women, children and “infants”.

    According to here, prophets were spokespeople of God, hence if this story is true, then god was ultimate authority of having babies killed. How is God (in 1 Samuel 15) any better than Herod in Matthew 2?

    Evolution is proven to be a correct theory of biology.

    Could you elaborate on this analogy?

    How, exactly, is evolution "impossible" in your view.
    When you say "to hopefully account for the time they think is needed for these changes (mutations) to occur", are you talking about certain specific mutations or mutations in general?

    Please explain. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Are you aware that IC was already a PRATT in the week following the day that piece of junk was unleashed upon the world?

    Claims a degree in biology.
    Doesn't know that "DNA is a code" is a metaphor / analogy.

    Priceless.

    Got a link for that quote mine?
    And evolution is most certainly a theory.
    Also, no hypothesis, or theory for that matter, is ever considered "proven". As a science degree holder, I'ld expect you to not make such rookie mistakes. :rolleyes:


    LOL!!!! The thermodynamics argument? For realz?
    Ever noticed that giant ball of nuclear infurnus up in the sky? It feeds the earth with workable energy 24/7.

    The only embarrassment here so far, is the stuff you write down.

    Quote mine pratts plus sparky braggadocio
    makes for a dull thread.

    I wish a capable creationust with a modicum
    of education would show up.

    Proven is the wrong word, granted.

    I am so sorry that I busted this new poster so quickly. Well, I can't take credit for it. He did most of the work himself.

    And that was a "Cum laude" degree. Let's not forget it.

    It depends on which definition of "proven" that one uses. Nothing in the sciences is ever "proven". But if one goes by the much lower "proven beyond a reasonable doubt" as one sees in criminal lawsuits it has been "proven" by that standard.

    But since I am a stickler for scientific evidence for a scientific debate I should be consistent and say that nothing in the sciences is proven.

    Evolution is one of the best substantiated theories in the history of science, supported by evidence from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including paleontology, geology, genetics and biology..

    Hmm. I've always taken the genetic code to be a quite literal code. The DNA chain contains a set of symbols that are transcribed into RNA chains and then translated into chains of amino acids.
