Sam quoted:
"Think about a Porsche and Volkswagen ‘Beetle’ car. They both have air-cooled, flat, horizontally-opposed, 4-cylinder engines in the rear, independent suspension, two doors, boot (trunk) in the front, and many other similarities (‘homologies’). Why do these two very different cars have so many similarities? Because they had the same designer! What if human and chimp DNA was even 96% homologous? What would that mean? Would it mean that humans could have ‘evolved’ from a common ancestor with chimps? Not at all! "

There are so many things wrong with your
argument that it's almost cruel of you to
keep badgering us with it.

1) The cars do have common ancestors. The genetic information of cars is not carried via
sexual reproduction, but is the basis of each generation of design. So your point proves

2) We KNOW that sexual reproduction in animals
DOES create new combinations of DNA which gradually can change the average form of any genetic line. Mutations alone are not the only cause of genetic change!

At this point, it should be clear that
no Creationist should have ANY worldly authority over folks who are more honest and more evolved.
