    LOL what a stupid question.

    Dinosaurs existed...but they cant know the exact age of stuff. Its just not possible. Sure they have worked out this carbon ating thing, and ya know perhaps they worked it out using an object they knew the exact age of and then use a formula to calculate how old other things are.

    But the thing is, how do they know that once object get to a certain age they dont start aging differently etc. They don't know.

    IMO, the age of prehistoric things will never be acurately known, just like the way the universe started will never be known regardless of how many theories they chuck otu there

    Evolution: Library: Evolution of the Dog

    I don't know how anyone can look at the diversity of shapes and sizes of dog breeds and not believe in evolution or genetic enhancement for chosen purpose by selective breeding. Whether it's by human choice or by survival of the fittest (breeders), how can you say it doesn't happen.

    If there were no genetic changes - we'd all be identical to each other. All dogs would look the same, all cats would look the same, all birds would look the same...

    And it just seems logical that the critters that survive long enough to have critters of their own and raise those to maturity - they're the ones whose genes get passed on.

    And then there are natural genetic mutations that happen all the time - from viruses and radiation changes to dna.

    Personally the only way I can wrap my head around the idea that someone would not believe in evolution is to say that they have a defintion of it that is not the same as mine.

    Selective breeing is not the same as evolution though....

    Carbon dating is a process full of holes once you know how it works.

    Evolution is also a theory full of holes when closely examined, you don't need to be in opposition to it, or necessarily believe in creationism. But that theory is no less valid, and no less able to be shown as flawed in many ways, than evolution.

    Evolution is a theory widely questioned by not just fringe scientists but many in the mainstream, as it is so far from explaining how the world changes.

    Charles Darwin did little to promote his theory, and maintained his theory only view on it. It was widely promoted by an Englishman (whose name escapes me) nicknamed Darwin's Bulldog. Darwin apparently attempted to distance himself from the dogged promotion of the theory as absolute fact.

    A good scientist always continues to question and search for answers, instead of persistently following one hypothesis...

    On his deathbed, didnt Darwin renounce his theories of evolution in favour of creation anyway?

    Of course he would, he wanted to go upstairs rather than down stairs with all the non believers. What a scared man says on his death bed is usually all B.S.
