    I am not dodging your point. I understand. They must be studied alone...and each discipline will compliment the other and build a unifying theory from each area of study in the grand theme of things.

    I respect what you believe sir.

    Maybe we can make a thread. What would be a good topic that we have not done before ?
    I think we will have to see what happens.

    I was actually think about dong some study on the contexts and times of Darwin. But that is more independent.

    that's the thing... no. they don't form a unifying theory. you can group them together and use them to form a narrative of the history of the cosmos but that's not the same as a unifying theory.

    i don't know. i'd be open to discussing any specific aspects of biological evolution if we can keep it on topic. i have certain questions i don't think you've sufficiently answered in detail, and i'm also open to any questions you have that you don't think i've tackled, so long as they're actually on topic. i'm not interested in discussing cosmology and i'm really not interested in discussing the culture of victorian era england.

    Depends on who you talk to...after all evolution is a fact right ? I'm sure you get what I mean. And I'm sure others will say different things. But I meant just what you said, that "to form a narrative of the history of the cosmos" you need disciplined study such as astrology, biology, physics, etc etc...

    I'm fine with a discussion. Not sure if I'm going to pose questions straight way or not...but I'll keep my eyes out and if anything pops off I'll try to add something meaningful. What did you feel specifically i did not address, tell me because it will be something to keep in mind.

    The context and culture of the times are very important, surely you can appreciate history. Of course you can.

    alright well if you agree with my description then i'll drop it... but you should know that a "unifying theory" and a narrative are not even remotely the same.

    as for questions... i'll start with just 1.

    i don't think you ever addressed what stops macroevolution; where obstacle is that prevents the changes cause by microevolution from adding up and resulting in more drastic changes over time. i pressed you on this and never got a good answer.

    not to evoke debate but to offer something to chew on:

    Cool man I will keep this question in mind and maybe a revelation will come that is worth sharing LOL

    But for now you are assuming Macro evolution happens...you would have to prove it does first in order for me to answer the question. I can give a lot of reasons why its impossible for Macro but the phenomena must be a real process in reality not in textbooks, computer models and imagination.

    For example, there is no evidence to support such a claim from

    1 Geologic column/fossil record
    2 fossils
    3 morphological similarities/comparative anatomy
    4 DNA
    5 vestigial "artifacts"
    6 bacteria and mutations

    lets keep this focused, though. i don't have any problem dealing with those topics but recall that last time it took you 13 posts to make your case and it took me 6 posts just to make my case for the geologic column and radiometric dating... had i finished responding to the rest of your posts i might have gone past 13. i don't want this to devolve into another long winded argument that is all over the place. so stay on the one question until that is resolved.. if we can't move beyond the first question then the discussion was doomed to start with.

    and i will have to say, no, i don't have to assume macroevolution happens to raise that question. i only have to assume microevolution happens, since they are said to happen by the same mechanisms. my question fundamentally is what stops continued microevolution over time from resulting in macroevolution.

    Cool, cool

    I think I will have to address DNA to answer this question, good stuff man. I liked how we keep this clean and non personal.

    Doesn't the movie he watches say "keep the change you filthy animal" when the pizza boy arrives, and something about hotel staff being led to believe there's a shooting going on in the 2nd one ~ before he runs out?
