There is no proof whatsoever that man evolved from a single celled organism. There are plenty of fairy tales, but when push comes to shove, it's nothing more than a pipe dream.

Those who have swallowed that pipe dream hook line and sinker are experiencing nothing more than a faith based experience.

Even definitive proof of how the one celled organism originated is up for grabs.

Oh please. Sure there is! Where on earth did you get the idea that just because you say something means you have to be taken seriously?

First things first: Do you accept that man evolved from an ape that was similar to today's chimpanzee?

There is no proof whatsoever that man was created by God. There are plenty of myths written by men in books but when push comes to shove, there's absolutely nothing tangible to prove either the existence of a God, nor its hand in the creation of matter.

There is, however, substantial evidence that man evolved from a common ape ancestor and that other extant animals evolved from ancestors common with other extant animals. The evidence does not need to be a continuous line from man to protolife, or more correctly, initial life to man. Humans excel at discerning patterns, patterns such as the common descent of all animals, from incomplete information. If we see a pattern often enough in similar circumstances, we can infer that the consistency in the pattern is valid in other like circumstances. Why deny this pattern recognition ability when it comes to common descent but rely on it for everything else in your life?

Since scientists are the ones that actually investigate, test and verify their ideas before accepting them but creationists simply accept the meanderings of the Hovindites and Johnsonites of the world, which do you logically think are really swallowing that pipe dream? Remember, be logical.

"Even definitive proof of how the one celled organism originated is up for grabs.

That may be true today, but as science has shown time after time, what is unknown today will likely not remain that way very long.
