"My beliefs in evolution are based on science not faith."

Nope. I'm going to address that in a new post soon.

"No beneficial mutations, eh? What about sickled cell anemia? Excess melanin in peoples who evolved near equatorial regions? Mutation does not have to mean 'delitarous'."

Sickled cell anemia mutations are as harmful as they are beneficial. From this site:

"Despite the fact that sickle cell anemia sufferers are more resistant to malaria, they are also subject to 'growth impairment, susceptibility to infection, and chronic organ damage due to repeated vaso-occlusive episodes'."

And about the melanin:

"...we have established microevolution can and does lead to macroevolution given enough time."

Whoa whoa, hold on!!!!! You have? Give me a link, I must have missed that one! On a similar note, did anyone ever find any transitional links yet?
Give me the link to that too. KC2GWX 73's
