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

Because evolutionists tell you so?

Why do you subscribe to circular "reasoning"?

No actually biologists, biochemists, and molecular biologists told me.

Why did he make some of it extremely toxic to all life forms, effervescent with poison gas. Was that a booby trap of his? Sounds like the work of a SICKO if you ask me.

Explain how he subscribed to circular reasoning in what he just said. I'm very curious where you got circular reasoning from that.

The Law of Evolution is fact. Creationism is mythology - not to taught as anything but.

Feelings is all you got on the matter. Nor did I presume to speak for the community at large. All I did was point out that your straw manning of that community in no way matches what they have actually done or said. Misrepresenting the claims of evolution is not, and will likely never be, an argument against it. Try as you might.

I repeat again if you are personally upset that a particular label fits you and something else you so desperately want to feel yourself above and beyond... then that is your problem and yours alone. It is certainly not a problem of the label. Nor of Evolution Theory.

If you want to debunk my points great. If you want to ignore my points and just throw around invective.... that says more about you and nothing about me.

The point you so desperately avoided and ignored is that classing ourselves as another animal contains no value judgement. We ARE just another animal. If "animal" is the label you are using. That fact is entirely separate from the differences between us. It merely groups us based on the similarities inherent in the label. If those similarities terrify you so... then that's your problem not ours.

This is a good place to start your above mentioned quest to actually start understanding that of which you speak. ALL of science is about reforming Theory to fit each new discovery and each piece of new data. That is exactly what science is. Grasp that and that alone and you will have left this thread a better and moree educated man than you entered it as all the rest of the post from this point on is predicated on pretty much the same errors in thinking.
