Atheists answer this regarding evolution?

There is no real evidence that proves that one species becomes another they use arguments like well there is similar DNA in Chimps as there is in Humans so what there is similarity with a bus and a car the car did not suddenly become a bus it took a intelligence using similar material. the fact there is some mutations in a species and similarities with a other species is not proof that one became another that is speculation from the observer.I could argue that a intelligence call him God made all life some he used similar DNA and material. Some species have in the DNA the opportunity to create mutations if the need arises change of climate but there still the same species.

    "There is no real evidence that proves that one species becomes another" Oh really? So I guess all these people lied then:

    So much fail...

    A skeptic or atheist is governed by two main principles: 1) all beliefs must be supported by observational evidence, and 2) beliefs that contradict observational evidence cannot be tolerated. However, strong atheism states that there is no god, even though observational evidence indicates that the universe has a cause that cannot be detected observationally. So despite the lack of observational evidence for a naturalistic cause for the universe, the strong atheist believes that the universe has a naturalistic cause and that there is no god, contradicting the tenet that all beliefs should be based upon observational evidence. Adaptation (known as evolution by most atheists) has been observed and therefore is evidence. Evolution in terms of specie rendering new specie has NEVER been observed yet atheists are fully bought into the evolution without God lie! Why? Because accepting God's existence means accountability.

    @Tina -

    A transitional fossil is any fossilized remains of a lifeform that "exhibits characteristics" (might as well say "kinda like") of two distinct (different, not the same) taxonomic groups (species, family, class,group etc.). A transitional fossil is the fossil of an organism "NEAR" the (THEORIZED)branching point where major individual lineages (clades) (MAY)diverge. It will have characteristics typical of organisms on both sides of the split, but because of the ************* ******** <**********<<<<<< INCOMPLETENESS >>>>>>***** of the fossil record, there is usually no way to know exactly how close it is to the (NEVER OBSERVED AND SPECULATIVE) actual point of divergence (WE THINK).

    HOW DOES AN "INCOMPLETE FOSSIL RECORD" AND THE PHRASE "there is usually no way to know exactly how close it is to the actual point of divergence" INDICATE FACT!

    not to mention the idea of divergence is speculative without the support of fossils to verify the truth regarding divergence!

    species are defined in science, not nature, so if scientists call something a new species, then its defined as a new species. This has nothing to do with transformation.

    Evolution has nothing to do with transformation.

    Rather, nature plays trial and error with the mutations of genes in living organisms.

    Mutations in the same species occur, until its radical enough for scientists to define the mutation as a new species.

    What you are saying is not what modern scientists believes evolution to be

    so stop getting all these religious types hyped up (*cough* ILoveDollyP *cough*) that they have something against us agnostics and atheists, troll.

    "Some species have in the DNA the opportunity to create mutations if the need arises" - and if they change enough, what happens then?

    You get a new species.

    Almost identical is not exactly "similar. Similar is grub wormDNA is similar to human DNA= 75+% identical Bweing oner gene short as ONLY difference is not similar.

    Sorry but that is the evidence and it is there if you would take your nose out of yopur bible and stick it in a few graduate level Microbiology symposia.

    Mutations happen, yes we know this. When mutations continue to will eventually have a new just takes millions of years to see it happen.

  • Circular arguments may sound convincing to the critical thinking impaired crowd, but you're going to have to try a little harder to convince thinking people that you have a cogent argument worthy of being

    taken seriously.

    Please give critical thinking a chance and make room for some skepticism in your praxis, I guarantee it won't hurt your brain.

    There is a mountain of evidence for evolution

    There is no real evidence that proves you have a brain

    You are right, and that's a very good argument, but these stubborn Atheists won't budge. Have a good day now in the Lord!!! Jesus created all things. It says so in John 1:1-3, Col. 1:16, Rev. 4:11, etc.

    This belongs in the Biology section. What's the matter? Afraid scientists will shut you up?
