Sorry but I think you've lost it.

I have lost nothing.  The excamos have lived long enough in the north to have started growing more fur. Their bodies.  They haven't.  Only one group has a modified body the natives of the andies.  They have a slightly larger lug capcity.
But, after two weeks they no longer have an advntage over us in that thin air.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

There are now several hundred fossils described of pre-humans.  You are just deliberately ignorant out of religion.  I think even the Mormon scholars hedge on this one, but of course not the rank and file.

So, human evolution is disproved by the fact that eskimos don't have fur.

The fact that even the most rabid of creatonists hasn't come up with that one should tell you something.
Or, have they?

Addition:
Daniel's not alone in asking this question. This was one of the better replies I found to another ignorant creationist:

Quote

You're kidding I hope?? Evolution is not Burger King -- you don't get it your way. There is no driving intelligence behind it that suddenly says "Oh see there's a need over here for something, let's whip up a new species." Evolution doesn't happen on demand, simply because there's an adaptational need. I would suggest actually learning what evolution is and how it works before jumping into the big kids pool on the subject.

Ahhhh...well ok then, how about saying 'Mutations' instead of evolution....isnt that what all the kerfuffle is about ...( regrets losing a perfectly good spanner...) but most are missing his point...if were are not evolving then we must be devolving (Muahahaha....)

Yes, we all have mutations.  Do you know what happens if a baby chick is born that is different fromthe others, the others kill it.  Or so my grandma told me so.

Most of us have slight DNA mutations, I know cause I do, I was part of the Genome project. Our little mutations mean we are still evolving. Animals kill the babies they know are deformed, disabled or very ill.....luckily we have evolved and don't need to do that anymore.
Ask any geneticist.

No matter what happens....never stop believing in people.....never stop believing in love♥♥

Arrbonal I have already proven that I know what evolution is.   I stand by what I said.  If a neanderthal was brought to oujr time I would venture itf would take him six months and you wouldn't be ab le to tell.

Neanderthals and man were seperatedd by' a hundred tthousand years. Yet wes have the same voice box.  As I said man does not aznd has not evolvedphyssically.  We have eevolved mentally.

I'm sorry but everything you say about evolution says you are extremely ignorant about it.  You do not learn about evolution by reading creationist propaganda.

People would wonder where the hell he came from and babies would cry.  This is our closest cousin.  Go a little further back in time and the difference become even more notable.

Every one of your posts on the topic proves otherwise. Stating that eskimos' lack of fur disproves evolution illustrates that.

I'd recommend that you read a book about the subject. I mean one written by a biologist, not a creationist. Once you understand what the theory actually says, then you can dispense with strawman arguments and start to engage more meaningfully on the topic. Just a thought.

If we're getting smarter, how come you can't spell or use grammar properly?

Well, the paleontological record shows that dominant species don't evolve that much anymore, the shark, for example, has hardly evolved in a few million years. And the reason is quire simple: It does not need to adapt to a new ecological niche. It is dominant in its own.

I think its an attempt to say that creationists are stupid or at least uneducated.  At least that's the way I took it, and was underwhelmed.
