You have not been scientific and that is the reason I stated you won. I have proven to you that you are not being scientific, I answered your questions to the best of my ability and still you find ways to twist what I say.

What you are saying is not science and everything you utter can be refuted by logical science. The book, "The Genesis Flood" was put out decades ago and has since become laughable in the scientific community. It did not make the waves it was supposed to do. You have to be more scientific in your posts by admitting that nothing is proven in science. Science can really only disprove things and provide evidence for theories. Are you willing to say that creationism may be wrong in light of new findings? Are you willing to say the earth could be older than 6,000 years? Unless you are willing to say these things then it is not science.

Do you believe that our atmosphere has changed? Do you believe that organisms respond to their environments? Do you burn in the sun? Are you vulnerable to virus attacks? Just because transitional fossils are not in the abundance that you want does that mean they didn't exist. Do you even understand how rare fossils are? What kind of circumstances have to be in place to find them, let alone create them. Fossil hunting is relatively in its infancy. You will not have that as an arguement for long. Fossils are turning up everyday to fill in the gaps - just wait!! I think we need people like you to scrutinize scientific discovery. I just get upset when you close your mind to what is logical and rational. I accept your belief in God. You are magnifying the shortcomings of science to glorify your own beliefs. You are presenting things to disprove evolution rather than support creationism. If discrediting evolution is your objective then fine - I support that because it is part of the scientific process. Just don't hide behind the bible. Our scientific knowledge is flawed, but improving with each day. You are circumventing the scientific process by including God in your equation. It just isn't science and I wish some other fine people in this forum who understand the nature of science would step in here with me. For the record, I believe in God and am a spiritual person. I hope we can both take something positive away from this dialouge.

Scott
