Your evolutionism, descent with modification has shown to be false. 



See? Descent with modification is not "evolutionism." It's "evolution."

57's own view is called creationism.  He knows it's insulting to label anyone with that.  Therefore he uses the word evolutionism in an attempt to return the insult.

I see you're still working hard at denying reality, 57.

Why do folks always seem to ignore the poor little bonobo? The species’ pelvic bones are more narrow than chimps, at least the females of the species will sometimes walk bipedally with offspring on the back just like humans while foraging for food, it has red lips more in line with humans . . . and for those of us more interested in the evolution of behavior (for it too evolves via natural selection) the bonobo will smile just like a human (unlike the chimp’s fear-grimace) and has been experimentally shown to hold greater capacity for abstraction (such as in language acquisition which it then passes down from mother to child). . . . A great book to read “Kanzi”.


I often think it’s because we’re skirmish of thier un-Abrahamic like sexual proclivities: born sinners are they.


Thought the homologous evolution between humans, chimps and bonobos is in current dispute (last I heard) , its seems clear that humans share a great deal of at least analogous evolution with bonobos.


Maybe this will bring the discussion back on track . . . maybe not.

EVOLUTIONISM




The scientific THEORY of EVOLUTION


REAL science ... as opposed to ...


creationISM (bronze age myths, fables and fairy tales pretending to be science).

"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.

I saw my little infant granddaughter take her first steps the other day. In play with another as-yet-to-walk infant, and unable to otherwise prevent her companion in play from taking her toys, she gathered up a couple of them, stood, and stumbled off a distance out of the reach of her playmate. Perhaps the ability to walk, thus freeing the hands to gather up more fruit than would otherwise to possible, was what inspired our species to become bipedal?

iama: On Day 6 of the Creation Week, our Creator-God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness."


Christ Jesus, the incarnate God-Man, is the "Our / Us" likeness.


Human beings were created to be in relationship and fellowship with our Creator-God. 


We were created to be able to look up and lift up our hands and worship Him.

Oh, that's why we humans are bipedal, so we can "lift up our hands and worship"! Smile

Now you're just being silly... and you are deriving this from a source with known reliability problems.
