H. neanderthals died out about 30,000 years ago. There is ongoing debate over whether the 'Neanderthal Man' was a separate species, or a subspecies of H. sapiens. 'OBJECTIVE' evidence from mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosomal DNA sequencing indicates that little or no gene flow occurred between H. neanderthalensis and H. sapiens. Want the specific studies?

and God said, lets us make man in our image,not hey lets make a monkey and watch it turn unto a man.I believe God made man,if that make me ignorant THANK GOD.
---tom2 on 11/12/07

You are right. They are just mutations, mutations that do have positivie components. My response was to show that all mutations are not negative. For a species to evolve to another, tens of thousands of mutations may be required and a proportionally larger number of years. Since mutation occur at the cellular level, it is unlikely we will find direct evidence in the fossil record. I also agree that probably no direct evidence for evolution may be found.
---matthew on 11/12/07

You have every right to believe anything you want. You can ignore evidence of anything and reject logical conclusions draw from testing and evidence. You have every right to reject or accept anything you want to, base on anything you want to based it on.

That does not and will never make anything you believe true or untrue. It is still just what you believe. If that belief gives you comfort, but is demonstrably false, you are living in ignorant bliss. Its what the words mean, not an insult.
---matthew on 11/12/07

matthew, with all the negative responses here I am THE ONLY ONE you refer to as living in ignorance. I thank you.seems maybe I shed truth on the lie you believe,and you as most take it personally.theres one truth you don,t believe GOD did make everything out of is God thats how.
---tom2 on 11/12/07

Paganistic view! Then tell me why monkey's are not evolving today?
---Terry on 11/12/07

If evolution is and the cycle is continuing or even if not,from the ameba to the creature that walked out to land,from that creature to the monkey,from the monkey to man. we should be able to see all the missing links they are so eagerly looking for.
---Dan on 11/11/07

Marty, Evolutionists make a supposition then build on it as tho it was a concrete base! How do they explain things like- how does a banana tree or date palm know about sex? It takes one of each to reproduce,(called dioecious) are they conscious of whether they are male or female? All by accident? I asked one once, but all I got was "bark"!
---1st_cliff on 11/11/07

Matthew ... Those are surely just mutations? Not evidence of Evolution which I believe is one type of species developing into another
I constantly get slammed here for thinking that God MAY have used SOMETHING LIKE evolution to create current life on earth. Creationists here say that means I deny God the Creator, which is an untrue accusation.
As to Evolution, there is no proof of evolution ... at most there are mere indications of evidence.
---alan_of_UK on 11/11/07

Those closest to Noah would have been the most intelligent. Egyptian pyramids. The highest quality pyramids both architecturally and mathematically are the first ones. Early pyramids required an absolutely level foundation and the construction of the burial chambers within them constitute nothing less than what one author calls "a masterpiece of engineering."
---Bob on 11/10/07

Advanced technology in pyramids vs. man evolved from primitive ape-like creatures. Incredibly, a common explanation is that aliens came down and helped them out. This is a sad commentary. Many seem ready to accept it.

As for me and my house, we serve and believe in the Creator.
---Bob on 11/10/07

"After 5 years of college and ten years of field work there is no much I don't know. I do not life did not come from nothing, this is ontologically impossible. NO ONE has shown me how the Bible conflicts with evolution."

Evolution's explanations of the past do not agree with reality.

Advanced technology fits very well with Genesis and we must be careful not to try to superimpose ideas, which may be literally from outer space, on Scripture.
---Bob on 11/10/07

If you don't believe in evolution then don't go to the doctor for antibiotics when you get sick.

according to President Bush's own science advisor, John Marburger: "Evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology."
---ray on 11/10/07

Matthew, Your examples are stretching it just a little, The mutation causing sickle cell still causes the body to be "less" efficient,while at the same time resulting in the less likelyhood of getting malaria! Helpful ? -not for the body, (unless you're bitten by a malaria causing mosquito!)The body is better off without that mutation.(there's always quinine!
---1st_cliff on 11/10/07

Leon I get the distinct impression you just want to argue your points, without considering what I actually say.
I don't believe you are seriously interested in appreciating God's enormous creative plan. Otherwise, you wouldn't insist that the Genesis account is complete (a few verses to describe all that God did? Come on!)
It's my sincere hope you will, at some point in your life, decide to listen to others before abusing them.

You should also know that what you're asking regarding mutations occurred at the DNA level, and only the results will show in the fossil record.

But you do stand upright, and you don't walk on your knuckles, do you? That took a whole lot of mutations.
---matthew on 11/9/07


You all can believe or not believe anything you want. But believing something doesn't make it true or untrue.

Your failure to believe some things in the face of evidence doesn't make false either the evidence or the conclusions.

You can believe anything you want to believe and live in bliss. Ignorant bliss.
---matthew on 11/9/07

Cliff, Mutations which caused sickle cell resistance to malaria, lactose tolerance, immunity to HIV, resistance to atherosclerosis atherosclerosis are current examples.
Google "favorable mutations" and learn what mutations really are. Noticable ones are rare. We're not talking monster babies or the ability to run 100 mph. Just small change that allows one to survive and reproduce.
Your view of this seems to come "B" movies for the fifties. You need to catch up.
---matthew on 11/9/07

yes we christian do take issue with it. why?because darwins therory has been taught that man evolved from a lower form of life into man,thats why we disagree.

mikem, sorry but christians,true christians don,t believe that man evolved from a lower form of life as a monkey,or even adifferent class of homo sapien.thats the difference between faith in the word of God and faith in science,or darwinism.
---tom2 on 11/9/07

Matthew, You should be able to give us an example of a "favorable mutation" that made life better in the evolutionary chain! I await!
---1st_cliff on 11/9/07

1st Cliff,

Mutations create variations in the gene pool. The less favorable mutations are reduced in frequency in the gene pool by natural selection, favorable mutations tend to accumulate, resulting in evolutionary change.

There are good and bad mutations, like there are good and bad people, like there is good and bad information. Something at which you are expert.
---matthew on 11/9/07

Tom: "atheistic scientific mind" In college not one of the professor I endured was an atheist. I see no conection between atheism and evolution, its a false dictonomy. Beyond 'rhetoric' the evidence is there, accept, or ignore it, it will remain.

Matthew, Mutations are "always" harmfull,they have never made anything better!
---1st_cliff on 11/9/07

Scientists look at fossils and other replica of former living things which imply to them an evolution. They want to make the human being no better than an automobile. An observer can take similar kinds of evidence for automobiles over the last 100 years and conclude the same way - they have evolved without an intelligent designer. OI course Detroit would be insulted by that assumption.
---Dan1724 on 11/9/07

Leon, what they are saying is that God created the universe. He also created life and that evolution may have been the tool that God used for this. Though I think its also important that they are actually arguing intelligent design and that evolution bows to that.

St Augustine believed that the creation story was a spiritual allegory and thus symbolical and not literal. And he was one of the greatest theologians to have lived, though still just a man.
---Marty on 11/8/07

God's ways are higher than mans ways, who can understand how God creates things. We can however determine that he is the creator but the how is beyond our comprehension.

I believe that Christians often incorrectly interpret evolution/science as atheistic and anti-God. Where as often incorrectly assert that Christianity is anti-scientific and thus bigotry. That may be reasons for these stereotypes but one does necessitate the other.

MikeM, what I believe is that the majority of evolution theory is irrational and unscientific that atheists have clutched onto as a myth to justify a worldview that would otherwise crumble. However it culturally it is a very persuasive tool of rhetoric regardless. I do not know if God used evolution for creation or not I do know that he created us. There are many assumptions (thus faith and not scientific) that evolutionists tend to use to justify evolution.
---Marty on 11/8/07

MikeM that list of steps in evolution you provided what evidence exist that isn't rhetoric to back these up?

Being a philosopher people discriminate against me heavily because I am a Christian, if they call me irrational in my beliefs they very quickly are shown contrary to this and that they are irrational for thinking such a thing of me.
---Marty on 11/8/07

being a biologist I understand that natural selection leads to origin of species,which leads to darwins theory of evolution.and that the mapping of the genome for you just means answers on a molecular,and genetic level to explain evolution.but for me not being a scientist,God has explained it for me in genesis.
---tom2 on 11/8/07

and God said let us make man in our image.he didn,t say lets take the genetic makeup of a monkey that is nearly the same as what we want and make a man.the 2,50 percent you speak of ,makes a monkey a monkey, when the human genom was mapped some 3 years ago they discovered it was impossible for the genetic makeup of man to have come from any other source other than it,s own,why because thereare no markers or any evolutionary nature.ergo thers never been any evolution within modern man genetic makeup.

---tom2 on 11/8/07

Tom, The genetic variation between a chimp and modern man is 2.50% The pairing of sequential DNA strands is almost the same. Mitochondrial DNA has been traced back 100,000 years in non-fossilized neanderthals and Cro-Magnon man.

The same DNA evidence used in micro-biology is used to send people to prison. If you cannot accept such facts, do not be on a jury.
---MikeM on 11/8/07

I do not see why one cannot accept science and at entertain evolution THEORY. To do so does not deny existence of or even that God was the creator. If you want to close your mind believing literally the Genesis creation story, fine. But you are really missing out on the wonder that science adds to God's creation.Don't you tire of this conspiracy theory. If a scientist doesn't believe in God (although many do) he doesn't go about trying to debunk God. He only speaks out when you try to debunk science.

Alan, Matthew, MikeM "the biologist": I get the distinct impression you guys just want to argue your points(?), right or wrong. I don't believe any of you are seriously interested in seeking the truth of this matter. Otherwise, you wouldn't discount God's creative ability as clearly "spoken" in the Bible.

It's my sincere hope you guys will, at some point in your individual lives, have a change of heart. I won't further pursue this blog bone of contention with you. Peace! :)
---Leon on 11/8/07

Leon ... I do not doubt God was the Creator.
But I beleive that Genesis is True rather than literally accurate.
God made the world and us.
But how?
---alan_of_UK on 11/8/07


In biology, mutations are changes to the base pair sequence of the genetic material of an organism.

This does not require a whole new and completely different organism or animal.
---matthew on 11/8/07

Leon, I am finite. My study of the physical world pounds this fact into my psyche daily. I consider is an eclipse of reason to think this planet and all the heavens, let alone us were the mere results of Newtons billiard ball universe, natural selection. Science itself tells me that random chemical processes did not somehow form complex nucleotide sequences from random chance. Thats silly. To say that the earth is only 10,000 years old and natural selection never occurred is equally silly.

MikeM "the biologist": Wow man! That's quite a grocery list. :) There's no denying, you're a very smart fella! But, it takes more than intellect to really understand life. We all need wisdom & that comes "only" from God, the Creator.

Studying the biological creation has limitations for our finite minds. Studying with the Creator opens for us infinite possibilities into things we can't even begin to imagine.

I pray you won't let your pride to completely outsmart you.

Matthew: Please re-read what I really (for a fact) said 11/7. Thanks. :)

DNA has to do with specific kinds of creation. Yes, the DNA informational variations in manKIND, etc., has nothing to do with evolutionary hits & misses (randomness), what you call mutation.

Mutation is completely changing from one kind to another. DNA variation is diversification within the same kind.

Alan: I agree with Jody. The Bible does stand against evolution. When Jody used the word "contradicted" I believe he meant dismissed, defeated, silenced, SHUT UP the Bible. That's the "subtle" goal of evolutionist.

I further agree with Jody. Evolution can't stand up to GOD'S WORD. Jody argues against evolution. On the other hand, your comments are pro-evolution Alan. Unlike you, I didn't hear Jody say the Bible & evolution were compatible. There's the rub. :)
---Leon on 11/8/07

I could name a few suggestions against evolution, but what comes to mind is the evolution of the eye. Would the amoeba have a conscious mind to say, "I need an eye to see." What would be the evolutionary stages of an eye before it was able to see? Unlike man who thinks he is a women traped in a man's body and women who think she is a man, animals don't have a conscious mind and are content about who they are - the same of the amoeba.

Alan ,Indeed why could not God have used this tool? Or some other yet undiscovered? The theory of evolution may one day be disproven, or corrected and refined. We may find evidence of God using science. For now can't we just accept that the Bible says that God made us and the Earth, and everthing else, but it left on a lot of detail. And its explanations are simple and understandable, but not literal facts. God knew not to confused us with too much information until we had been around for a while.

Evolution a random affair? The fact that children can be more like one parent than other, both, or neither, is a randomness you seem to accept. But the idea that a small change in the order of a few amino acids in a DNA chain (an accidental random mutation) may result in an animal with a better sense of smell, vision, mobility, or camoflage that will allow the animal to survive and reproduce, seems to make some devolve into irrational beasts.
---matthew on 11/7/07


You cannot accept any theory as fact. Theories by definition are not facts, and that's a fact.

Theories are just explanations of how the world works, and can be used to make predictions, and therefore tested for their accuracy.

They are not permanent or immutable. They are temporary constructs used in science to explain the world. Theories are made to be tested and destroyed if they are found to be wrong.

Alan: Why should anyone accept as fact "a theory" that supposes, "God MAY HAVE used..."?

The Bible strongly militates against the foolishness of evolution.

Again, let me ask you, why would Perfect God use a hit & miss (imperfect) way of creating by evolution instead of just making various kinds of creation the way (DNA) He wants?
---Leon on 11/7/07

Matthew: Taylor (Charlton Heston), in the 1968 sci-fi movie "Planet of the Apes", would no doubt be very strongly against all the evolutionary hubbub ("monkey business") some people are currently out on a limb in support of.

"Nothing that evolutionists have come up with has yet contradicted the Bible"
How true this statement is!
Evolution does not contradict the Bible!
So why be so frughtened of it? Why not accept that God MAY have used this tool?
---alan_of_UK on 11/7/07

Those who 'argue against' evolution do so based on emotion, this is subjective. The evidence for evolution is so massive they are required simply to ignore objective evidence, replacing it with a subjective standard. In doing so they are dismissing all science, returning to what we call the 'dark ages.'

Creationism is 100% religion, fundamentalist religion, it has nothing to do with science, not in the least. The argument 'against evolution'-is long lost. What creastionist offer is a viseral 'of the devil' or a host of other cliches or shallow barbs. In the theatre of thought, if a real scientist offers real evidence for evolution all the creationist will scramble for the exit signs.

Marty: Certainly DNA, not evolution, is the reason all seeds do what they do. Realistically, DNA opposes random chance evolution & supports the fact of Bible confirmed intelligent design. Unlike false, unintelligent notions of evolution, DNA is precise genetic information (specific instructions or blueprints) programmed inside the nucleus of cells for purpose of "intentionally" producing various kinds of creatures.

"how do the stars, moon, and sun stay suspended in the air?"
The answer top that is that they do not stay suspended in the air (at least not literally) I don't think there are many creationiosts who dispute the structure and dynamics of the Universe, whereby the earth whizzes round the sun, which has its place in the galaxy ... etc.
God set up that system, even though it is not exactly as recorded in Genesis

Viruses mutate ALL the time. Ditto bacteria.

I like to think that God in all His infinite power, made infinite forms of life. He just didn't deliver them to Earth all at once. (Or He did, but didn't store them all here.)
