"peer review" has become nonsense. having your work reviewed by someone who believes the same thing does not prove the work.

warg rider,

evidence of evolution?

What evidence?

A chorus of "priests" chanting in unison... "no god..." to justify their bloodthirsty political Fantasy-Ideology ...

Dear whar,
It is better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool then to speak up and remove all doubt. Evidence for micro evolution abounds, but for macro evolution is very scarce. As Darwin himself pointed out the strongest evidence against evolution for origin of species (or life itself) is the fossil record. Since then it has pretty much gone down hill.

"Paleontologists have paid an exorbitant price for Darwin’s argument. We fancy ourselves as the only true students of life’s history, yet to preserve our favored account of evolution by natural selection we view our data as so bad that we never see the very process we profess to study." Stephen J. Gould

peer-reviewed falsifiable theory based on evidence vs. ancient pastoral scripture? i don't think it's even close.

evolution: 4
creation: 0

Open to where the evidence leads......
Neither side scores too well.

The quotation of the week last week had to be that of Harvard professor Daniel E. Lieberman in an opinion piece for the New York Times.

Lieberman, a professor of human evolutionary biology, was among those who publicly defended New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to ban the sale of sugared soft drinks in cups larger than 16 ounces.

And he did so using, of all things, evolution.

Now, we all know that humans have always needed -- or evolved to need -- carbohydrates for energy. So how could evolution argue for Mayor Bloomberg's ban...
