"Mutation is not always detrimental to the organism. And yes, sometimes mutations will add to the survivablility of an orgainism."

Me: "The definition of a genetic mutation is:
"The process by which such a change occurs in a chromosome, either through an alteration in the nucleotide sequence of the DNA coding for a gene or through a change in the physical arrangement of a chromosome."

Give me an example of a beneficial mutation.

"Adaption and evolution are basically one and the same. You agree that adaption to an environment takes place, but you don't think that is evolution! That is absurd."

This is a common "evidence" evolutionist use.
You think that small adaptations are evidence
for the changing of speicies into something more complex. Why? Simply because something uses existing genetic information and becomes better adapted to it's enviroment does not mean it has become more complex! Do you really think that through adaption eventually a new species will arise?

"Fundamentalism is the outcry of your dying breed hell bent on feeling special in an insecure world."

What? Interesting theory!

"(or maybe I am a blowhard who doesn't know a freaking thing)"

Well now that you mention it.... :)
