"Well, I think this is just reaching a bit...what you're saying is like if someone said "What happens on Mars when no one is looking is unknowable.", and then you say "Then how do you know that it's unknowable?" We know…"

"Well, you can talk about dogs. You don't even need fossils because the domestication of the wolf and the diversification of dog breeds has all happened in the last 15,000 years. If that doesn't work you will need to punch the…"

"Then there is the issue of the Feathered dinosaur. But those in denial will simply say, as such dinosaurs fit right between dinosaurs and Archaeopteryx, "But what about between dinosaurs and feathered dinosaurs, and between feathered dinosaurs…"

"I don't think I have ever met a fundamentalist but I think they might like interesting stories, like the natural history of birds. A transitional bird fossil was found in slate  during the 19th century called Archaeopteryx. It…"

"On demonstrablilty, there are the studies of the evolution of fruit flies, but even those studies have only gone on as many generations as perhaps twelve thousand years human scale. There has not been much change in humans in that span of time, one…"

"Thanks for the reply James. Yes, I agree my numbers are meaningless. As I stated there were there to try and illustrate my point. Also, I was using hundreds of years to try and be generous, I know the timescale is actually longer. I know all forms…"

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Catherine Wallace's discussion At wit's end with evolution deniers...
"That the transitional forms should be like half whale-half giraffe is a very erroneous argument. Homo habilis, homo erectus and homo sapiens are transitional forms of evolving humans and there is evidence of their existence. Those who need to…"

"I really hate calling people unintelligent or irrational (Catherine) I have (as a biology teacher) always referred to evolution as the theories of evolution.(Jim) Both of these factors count in people denying evolution. Long and slow…"

Jim DePaulo replied to Catherine Wallace's discussion At wit's end with evolution deniers...
"Indeed. Evolution is not a theory it's a process that is definable and demonstrable just as other processes are, such as metabolism, photosynthesis or ecological succession . There are however, mechanisms inherent in those processes that are…"

"Again, as noted above, we are fortunate to have any fossils at all, considering how difficult it is to create a fossil and the number of changes the Earth's crust has undergone. That said, science advances by consensus. Evolution is the…"

"I find this interesting because despite being an atheist, I do not accept evolution, and one of the reasons for this is the "lack of transitional forms" argument. I would appreciate any feedback people have (but not just a link to an…"

"I normally avoid trying to have a serious discussion with fundamentalists, unless they insist. Then I let them know that religion is a mind virus which infects human hosts. Like other viruses, religious memeplexes perpetuate themselves by infection.…"
