It just makes me mad when a thumper rips a non-believer for getting his Bible stories mixed up.
The fact that the article states that the researchers are not definitevly referring to this find as THE 'adam' animal is a GOOD thing.
That is what GOOD science does, it leaves things open for interpretation, further study, and scrutiny.
Unlike the OTHER option, which pretty much says you'll never understand it, so stop trying. Take it on faith.
I can't stand the ridicule from those that won't even entertain the possibility that they could be wrong.
Heck, evolution could be wrong. Or not the ONLY way.
Any good scientist will admit this.
Stephen Jay Gould, a man I greatly admire, has said as much.
The difference is, at least the real scientist offers up the possibility, and will shake the hand of the person that proves creation and will change his/her mind the minute that happens.
If conclusive proof of evolution (I believe it to be there for you, others do not) is presented to the believer, they will still reject it.
Just not my style.
I believe I addressed most of your post with my prior one. However, about pointing out that it was Adam's rib, it was meant in jest. I picked up the sarcasm in CH's original post, and I sent some back with mind. I could care less if a non-believer gets the story right or wrong. It doesn't make a hill of beans to me.
Also, if scientists can wait until creation is proven to accept it and change their minds, why can creationists not have the same attitude?
