There difference between micro and macro evolution is the scale of time. People like Harrier believe the Earth is much younger than what modern science says, essentially telling the trillion dollar oil and gas business that they don't know how oil and natural gas is formed.

It's called trolling - can't argue with the evidence, so act like a five year old instead.

There isn't even an attempt to have a discussion. It's just child-like "I know you are but what am I?"-type nonsense, only instead of being spewed by a child who might not know better, it's being spewed by an adult who wallows in ignorance. Best to just put them on ignore. They're not interested in facts or reason or any of that, and nothing anyone posts is going to change their mind.

Didn't God put it there in expectation of the invention of the Edsel?

You've been exposed as ignorant to modern biology and you are just trying to save face.
You brought up human artifacts(guns) in a thread that concerns the teaching of evolution in public schools.

How does that even make sense?

Yea and I am an astronaut on the internet.

Evolution is the basis of modern biology, yet you pick and choose what to believe.

Actually, I don't believe in the idea of a rapture.

The book of Revlation is perfectly clear that the world and the existing church will experience a period of tribulation.

This is in stark contrast to what one church that I occasionally attend believes - on the other hand - my home church which I have been a member of for over 25 years(and a leader) has a homosexual as a prominent leader.

I have stayed away from that church recently, but have recently concluded that I can do more good working on the inside, so I plan to return in the next few months.
