"The fact that most components of DNA between mice, chimps, and humans are similar also implies that they originated from one source (not God) and branched outward."

Why does this imply what you say? This is purely a difference in opinion. I say this looks like the creator using the same building blocks over and over. And if they work, why not?

"Each time a cell enters mitosis, its DNA has a chance of changing. Each time a haploid cell enters meiosis, there is an even greater chance of a mutation. Every time two gametes merge, there is an incredibly great chance of a mutation. These mutations all build up to form evolution."

And out of this great multitude of mutations, how many are benificial? Any? You make it sound like mutations are commonplace, and beneficial. They are neither.

"I won't include a poorly worded insult insulting your intelligence here as I believe you can do that yourself."

How kind of you.
