    By refuted we mean that there is no evidence to support the claim of a global flood. Despite this, many keep repeating it happened over and over and over, but cannot support that claim.

    Not only that, unless one shrinks the "Flood" down to at best a large local flood, the evidence that should be abundantly clear for that flood does not exist. Which leads to my friend calling after claiming that a herd of buffalo stampeded through his house and not a single hair of a buffalo can be found, much less any damage that they would have caused. One quickly concludes that there was no herd of buffalo just as we can conclude that there was no global flood of Noah.

    Great. So one assumption let you to making another assumption, which makes two assumptions. What a great example of how most modern scientific theories are established. :)

    At least, that's still better than sticking out that you did not assume, as those do, who think they are always right, in everything they say. :)

    Once again you should not use terms that you cannot justify.

    I often cite the Pygmy three-toed sloth in my "discussions" with creationist. They live only on the island of Escudo de Veraguas off the Carribean coast and show how quickly evolution can happen.

    This species of sloth has been isolated on the tiny, food scarce island for just 9,000 years following the rising sea levels after the ice age which cut the then peninsula off from the mainland.

    They are only half the size of their mainland ancestors, evolution has found a way to compensate for the little and un-nurishing food

    You made an obvious mistake in calling Caucasians and dark-skinned PEOPLE two different species when we are all the same species. Now you are just doing the usual creationist two step to dance away from that fact, while smearing a person that correctly called you on it. How ethical of you.

    There has been no justification for anything I have seen from that direction. Just blather and double talk.

    There should almost be a rule that people need to justify claims made about others. when challenged. Far too many times I see creationists claim "assumption, speculation, . . . etc" (sorry there was at lead one more but I just can't remember) and yet when they are told that they have to prove those claims they simply run away from the fact that they cannot support their personal attacks.

    I am uncertain if the people that cannot support their arguments turn to extreme and fundamentalists versions of religion or if those versions indoctrinate them to use the tactics they do. I imagine it is both.

    You made a statement, whether based on racism or ignorance i not know and now you blame the world for your error when the honest thing to do is apologize

    I quote

    "Did God make Caucasians, and then make dark skinned people,..."

    Do you not see a problem with that?

    Sorry, but to communicate, you need to use the language in a way that is at least close to the standard.

    Thirty-four posts and people are still debating grammar rather than "The biogeographic evidence for evolution." but it is Sunday, god's day, so maybe that's the problem. :shrug:

    Umm. No.
    But I know why you would.
    It has to do with assuming. Which not surprisingly, up to now you can't see how.

    It was a direct quote from your post.

    No assumption is required when reading your post. It is blatent
