Am I 30% banana? I'm definitely 100% nuts.

The legendary post 52 is long obsolete in terms of understanding that retrotransposition is not random. And in terms of the recent analysis of the chimp-human genomes in terms of the repeating regions, the idea of the argument put forth that itchyman used is not accurate.

It doesn't matter though -- making a story to evangelize is what matters.

Actual understanding of the molecular biology is alos lacking so that the story is all that could be understood anyhow.

The lack of scientific rigor, knowledge and understanding of the evos is what astonishes me most about these fight threads.

Wow!

Proof that God must exist -- or, maybe, proof he doesn't.

Proof my shoe hurts my foot.

Why is this a shock? All mammals are very similar.

This is just some attempt to cater to the over-the-top lovey-dovey "dog people". But wait till they tell you how similar a cat is.

And if that isn't all, we're also very similar to the fruit fly!

Species is a social construct, exactly like race! And second hand smoking causes global warming.
