I'll tell you what “race” means. I'm 57 years old and was taught in public school that blacks were inferior to whites in class by a public school teacher from a public school biology textbook. I grew up with black water fountains, blacks in the balconies of the movie houses, and blacks had their own swimming pools and schools. I was taught evolution. Darwinian evolution. I have some encyclopedia's in my library that will attest the same thing in no uncertain scientific terms. The only reason I keep them is to show people how “science” has changed over the years.

Almost every year evolution is re defined to some new cockamamie idea that explains why they were mistaken last year. I recently wrote a post about a whale allegedly evolving into a cow and was promptly pooh poohed and sent to a dozen or so websites that said these weren't really ever taught as whale into cows, but had been misinterpreted by the ID’s to make the evo’s look silly. Well, the discovery channel has on, right now, a series called “Morphed”. Guess where they say cows come from?

Get a half dozen evo's in different rooms and have them explain evolution to you and you will get 12 answers. Then they swear they all agree. They think they can draw a picture of some animal morphing into something else and that proves they are correct.

If you cut through all the clap trap, what you find is a rebellious person that doesn't want to believe they will answer to an angry God. It boils down to a person making themselves into gods and denying their Creator. That is why it is so tempting to use it for an excuse for murder and hate. We can argue till the cows come home about so and so scientist and this and that discovery, but the truth is, no one will be able to prove any of it. Evolution is a religion with less proof than my religion. It is a mathematical impossibility to have evolved from nothing. When something is impossible, it's time to move on to something else. If you don't want to believe in God, that's fine, but evolution is dead.

"Evo's" are also called "Scientists."
Your red herring is interesting, but probably wrong. Oh sure, there are levels of defining evolution, but they all boil down to "A change in allele frequencies through time."
I think you'd be surprised, then, at the amazing consistency of the fossil record and DNA and the phylogenic tree. I know your creationist sources tell you otherwise, but it's true. You've been lied to. A lot.

Now, can we also get a half dozen creationists in a room to have them define creationism? Say... a YEC, an OEC, an IDer, an IC'er, a theologic evolutionist, a muslim, an Australian Aborigine, a Polynesian, some indigenous guy from the Andes, one of those tall skinny tribesmen from Ethiopia, a Catholic, and an an Inuit.

Have them each write their definition of creationism.

See the problem? (Of course you don't, because 11 of them are simply "wrong" in your eyes. Which is correct, of course, except that 1 more will be incorrect in reality. Scientists agree on evolution.
