Re: Can we improve the 10 commandments?

The 10 Commandments are a part of the covenant that God established with Israel at Mount Sinai in Exodus 19:3-24:11. God uses the word covenant in Exodus 19:5 and Exodus 24:7 refers to the 'covenant scroll'. So Rick is correct... The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17) are part of the Old Covenant tha...

Re: Tucker Carlson threatened

I thought the left would end stupidity... Protesters Send Message to Tucker Carlson outside His Home: ‘We Know Where You Sleep at Night’ Tucker was at work. His wife was alone at home. One of the protesters actually tried to break the door sown and damaged it. What would have happens to his wife if...

Re: Polls: How Can They Be Accurate?

What do you mean? The polls were spot on, for the 2016 Presidential Election! The polls were actually really close in 2016. The nation wide polls were pretty accurate. Which is why the national popular vote was very close to the polls. It was the statewide polls (with smaller sample sizes) in key s...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Here's what I mean by "DNA Gap". When we compare human DNA with the DNA of chimpanzees (whose DNA is the closest to human DNA) we find the following: "About 35 million DNA base pairs differ between the shared portions of the two genomes, each of which, like most mammalian genomes, contains about 3 ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Yes, the large number of irreducibly complex biological systems in the world today is a fatal flaw in your unproven presumptions. But the complexity of DNA at the molecular level is yet another stake in the heart (nice Halloween metaphor) to your unproven assertions. All you have to do is examine t...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The reason the single mutation path doesn't work is there are so many specific single mutations required to get from one beneficial state that natural selection will propagate to another beneficial state that natural selection will propagate. And the non-beneficial single mutations along the allege...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

My question continues to be WHY do living organisms evolve as opposed to NOT evolving? The simple answer is because they can to which I ask WHY can they? There is no real reason why any organism MUST evolve, right? So why do they? I guess this gets back to the old standby... "because God made it th...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The ability of an organism to... Where did this "ability" come from? Any organism's characteristics (such its ability to survive and procreate in a given environment) are a function of that organism's DNA. Because mutations at the molecular level are the cause of genetic changes within living organ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Natural selection doesn't cause anything. Natural selection is just a way of stating that organisms that are more fit to survive in a particular environment will survive in that environment. And when they survive in that environment, they will propagate their genetic information to their progeny. W...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The question remains: WHY does the organism adapt or evolve if you prefer? From a purely biological perspective... because of mutations that occur during DNA replication. So, the organism evolves BECAUSE mutations happen? Well, why do some mutations "lead" to evolution? why do others not? Why does ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

You are again and again assuming that the only possible evolution mechanism is the coordinated mutations way. It is easily demonstrated that this method is insufficient for evolution (in which you agree) but you don’t argue WHY this has to be the only method. The method of consecutive mutations is ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

To adapt: Become adjusted/Adjust to new conditions. A mutation is a new condition. To use this paragraph: If a particular genetic mutation is beneficial to an organism then that mutation can be propagated to the organism's offspring through the process of natural selection (survival of the fittest)...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

To me, what needs to be explained is not that random mutations occur BUT WHY and HOW living cells adapt to them. Why does evolution occur AT all as opposed to NOT occurring? Living cells don’t “adapt” to mutations. Living cells are controlled by the genes and if the genes are different (mutated) th...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Observation and experimentation have demonstrated that three coordinated mutations at the molecular level are beyond the capability of random mutation for the history of life on our planet. This means that the Darwinian processes of random mutation and natural selection alone are incapable of produ...
