You forgot again. Chickens evolved from egg laying dinosaurs called the theropods. Eggs are a DNA protein structure that evolved with sexual reproduction in mitosis almost 500 million years ago.

You simply don't know anything about anything and you refuse to read books on evolution as it destroys your hilarious "God is infinity" religion.

Who cares about this fictional "god" character invented by bronze age sheep herders, 3,000 years ago.
No dude the Proto-Sinaitic" inscriptions are dated between 1850 BC, and 1550 BC. Humans predate the invention of writing for about 187,000 years, and the Earth predates humans 3.8 billion years, and the Universe predates the Earth, and God predates ALL and the Infinite includes All!

No species "needs to evolve". Mutations occur naturally and allow for evolution.

That's why you deny cancer (DNA mutation) exists, because you are a religious person from the Dark Ages.

Boy. You really are that ignorant. Proto-Sinaitic is during the bronze age.

Proto-Sinaitic, also referred to as Sinaitic, and Proto-Canaanite (when found in Canaan),[1] is a Middle Bronze Age (Middle Kingdom) script
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Sinaitic_script

You really have the same limited knowledge as a bronze age sheep herder.

I don't deny that cancer and decease exist. But you seem to mix up constructive uniform formation with destructive malformation! That is like mixing up building a house (intelligent design) with burning it down or wrecking it (not much intelligence involved). You need extensive studying to become an architect, and training and skill to become a builder. Give a 2 year old a box of matches and he/she can set a city on fire!

And thus, on the day of the Lord Dec 2nd 2019, was destroyed, the utter nonsense with which it was attempted to convince people, that mere chancy mutations/formations created the whole Universe!

So you now admit that DNA mutates and thus allows for evolution. You should write that down on your forehead with a black felt marker.

No. As I actually know biology I inform you that most mutations are destructive. That's why life on Earth has taken 3.8 billion years to evolve. It is only advantageous mutations that increase a species reproduction advantage. You didn't even know that?

The universe does not evolve and planets don't have babies. Are you really that insane that you think planets have offspring using DNA?

You really seem more permanently confused than usual today.

You poor ignorant religious person. Bacteria are currently evolving in response to antibiotics. That's why we have "super bugs" that are resistant to antibiotics.

You really need to read children's science book about evolution as you don't know anything.


"Antibiotic resistance evolves naturally via natural selection through random mutation.......
https://www.sciencedaily.com/terms/a...resistance.htm

As you don't believe in evolution you should stick to the old versions of penicillin. That should benefit the human species when your DNA is removed from the gene pool.

Yes, bacteria respond to antibiotics; they don't build skyscrapers, send their species to space and perform surgeries.

Nitpicking words again, huh Matthew? There, "mutations/formations", I fixed it.

No. The evolved bacteria that are now resistant to antibiotics are resistant to antibiotics. Ask a four year old to explain this to you as you are really struggling with this basic fact.

Neither do you. Bacteria don't understand evolution. Neither do you.

So you think a "mummy planet" and a "daddy planet" have a special moment and form baby planets.

That makes sense. You also think that photon electromagnetic waves are actually particles and that your god created the universe and made man in his image, 13.8 billion years before man existed.

Yep. Your new "God is infinity" religion is 100% bat-**** crazy.

That was hilarious.

Isn't it not that the need to prove that God does not exist, springs from our very quest to get rid of guilt?

This is a list of questions.

Especially when the answers are in fact freely available to anyone who can be bothered to look them up.

Once the thin veneer of infinity mumbo-jumbo is scraped away, all that's left is just another willfully ignorant Christian fundy? How...disappointing

His posting name, "anastazio", is a variation of the greek word for resurrection. He thinks he is the new Christ, here to spread his new version of the Bible.

This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Anastásios (Αναστάσιος)”, from “anástasis ‎(ᾰ̓νᾰ́στᾰσῐς)”, meaning “resurrection, rebirth”
