Christopher Haynes says: Us Creationists, we want to reassure our Atheist friennds
>How do you reassure your friends who believe in G-d but do not accept creationism? You seem to divide people into creationists and atheists without even thinking that there might be a third group.

Ready to give us the name of your school?

"Guys just cause of we dont never answer none of your hare-brained questions, dont worry, we're not ignoring them. I mean, us hick Nascar Texas Creationists we still laugh at them."

Are you afraid to answer because you know the answer completely destroys the argument you were presenting before I asked it?

"Guys how does it feel to be up the creek without a paddle?"

Maybe you'd better tell that to the global scientific community.

This is an incomplete (as it was off the top of my head in 15 mins of thought --- probably missing a lot of geology and molecular biology) of journals that publish on evolutionary biology. Don't see any sign of them going under.

1. Journals devoted to evolutionary biology, including paleontology.

Acta Palaeontologica Polonica, Alcheringa, Annual Reviews of Evolution, Ecology and Systematics, Annual Reviews of Paleobotany and Palynology, Evolution, Evolutionary Anthropology, Evolution and Ecology Research, Evolutionary Biology, Evolution and Development, Historical Biology, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Journal of Molecular Evolution, Journal of Paleontology, Journal of Swiss Paleontology, Journal of Systematic Paleontology, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Leithia, Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeovenvironments, Palaeontologica Electronica, Palaeogeography Palaeoecology and Palaeoclimatology, Palaeontology, Paleobiology, Palaios.

2. Journals that regularly include articles about evolutionary biology and paleontology.

2a. High impact weekly journals: Nature, PLoS Biology, PLoS One, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Science.

2b. Other journals: Annals of the Carnegie Museum, American Journal of Physical Anthropology, American Museum Novitates, American Naturalist, Annual Reviews of Anthropolgy, Annual Reviews of Earth and Planetary Science, Annual Reviews of Physiology, Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, Biological Essays, Biological Reviews, Biology Letters, BioScience, BMC Biology, Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, Bulletin of Geological Sciences University of California, Bulletin of the Florida Museum of Natural History, Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Bulletin of Yale Peabody Museum, Bulletin of the Natural History Museum of New Mexico, Canadian Journal of Zoology, Cladistics, Current Anthropology, Current Biology, Geology, Geodiversitas, Global Ecology and Biogeography, GSA Today, Journal of Anatomy, Journal of Australian Biology, Journal of Australian Zoology, Journal of Biogeography, Journal of Experimental Biology, Journal of Experimental Zoology, Journal of Geology, Journal of Mammalogy, Journal of Morphology, Journal of Zoology, Mammalian Biology, Mammal Review, Memoirs of the Museum of Paleontology University of Michigan, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Quarterly Review of Biology, South African Journal of Science, Systematic Biology, Systematic Zoology, Trends in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, Zoology

Show of hands, how many here actually think this is a debate? How many here see this for what it is, a silly rant that at a minimum, has no place in a science forum.

I vote number 2. pretty sure haynes is a troll.... or the most brilliant scientist ever. did you know he has a perpetual motion machine?

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me---filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
" 'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door,
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door.
This it is, and nothing more."

Hi Christopher!

Just to remind you, you still haven't answered that question. Here it is again incase you've forgotten what it was:

So basically, every sighting of a UFO, dragon, ghost, superman, sharks with lasers, or any other outrageous claim made by someone actually did happen because, after all, they observed it happening, right?

And the inability to answer simple, factual questions is, of course, the hallmark of profound scientific expertise.

He's just trolling, folks. That's all that brain-dead creationists can ever do.

Christopher Haynes says: "Ahem, evolution made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled Atheists" His very words.
>That is what we in the educated world call an opinion. What does that have to do with the science of evolution?

Christopher Haynes says: They don't got a credible scientific alternative to Creationism on that.
>If by "they" you mean scientists, sure they do. You really should learn how to read scientific books and submissions. You've already shown how you completely misunderstand Dr. Koonin and the statistics of chance. Don't believe that? Ask him, just like I did.

Christopher Haynes says: Your old naturalistic abiogenisis jazz, that tanked years ago fellas.
>Wow, when did that happen? Abiogenesis tanked, yet they keep studying it?

What did you say the name of your school was?

No they have to write it down and get a few thousand gullible folks to buy their book. I think the last time this was successful was a little tale called dianetics.

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is, I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you." Here I opened wide the door;---
Darkness there, and nothing more.

I dont think Chris answers questions or challenges. I tried to get him to in his creationists vs. thermo forum but he doesn't.

Guys them amino acid molecules, what life is made out of theyre only left handed.
Dr Miller-Urey, he didnt never make none of them left hand only amino acids.
The ones he made were mixed up, both right handed and left handed.
Like them amino acids what Cosmetics are made out of!

Chris im so glad you brought up genetic chirality. Whats fascinating about the abiogenesis chirality is it speaks loads for evolutionary theory. In short we have left handed DNA because it evolved a useful cellular structure first. Kind of cool right?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 25, 2012 7:57:15 AM PDT
He ain't a-gonna answer, cause he know he wrong.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 25, 2012 7:58:14 AM PDT
You know what else is left-handed? Obama! That just goes to show that evolution is a socialist plot being foisted on the American people by that Communist Muslim dictator from Kenya.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 25, 2012 8:30:13 AM PDT
arpard are you aware that the largest threat to our existence could be dinosaurs recreated from left handed DNA blasted off from the KT impact. That is a far greater threat from the left hand than communism.
