    Link: Science - DNA Vs Genetics - DNA proves Evolution is false in the first video. Chromosomes prove Evolution is true in the second video.

    Is the guy in the first video being deliberately stupid?
    I actually feel dumber having listened to him.

    Guy in the first video is ridiculous. His assertions are completely asinine.

    The last thing religious nuts should try is using science to prove science wrong. This guy did a quick google search, and now he is a expert.

    Without making an argument for or against evolution, I would like to point out that the "facts" that the first video presented against evolution have nothing to do with evolution. Nowhere in evolution does it say that things always have to get bigger. Or that a human can or will evolve into a fern just because a human has less chromosomes than a fern does. So the first video does nothing to disprove evolution. Not a damn thing.

    there are one of two things true about people that argue against science, they are either too stupid to understand it, or they are lying to try to take advantage of you.

    Evolution is not something to be proven anymore. It`s been proven. It`s exact path, from every single species known today back to the original(s) cannot be fully and 100% demonstrated yet, due to incomplete fossil records, etc., but science and research get more and more accurate and precise and resolution and methods of measurement increase all the time.

    And while little tweaks here and there may occur to what`s published today due to improved measurement, the overall mechanism, the method, the fact that evolution occurs is not debatable or disprovable.

    all i can say is that we can talk about wether evolusion is proven or disproven. wether there is a god seems above these comparasons as there must be a god, period. .. .. ...

    you know, i think everyone is free to follow what ever religion you want, no matter how smart or stupid it really is, just.. dont bother or force others with it.. you want abortion? i know i dont but sure, not my call. you want to be married? again, not my call. Baptising your kid? still not my call. circomcision? sure why not, mutilate your kid, bound to be good for something believe in.

    But still, you want to believe that something with the same amounts of chromosooms is the same? by all means do, it does not show how silly someone else is, you are the one that believes it.. back to believe i guess..

    Again, believe what you want, but dont tell others to support your believe system.

    Modwain, I am circumcised.... and it has nothing to do with religion? I`m actually pretty content with it too, as is my European girlfriend who definitely prefers it. And I get to be less worried about Aids and herpes, which is pretty cool.

    I can google better then the first guy! Adder`s tongue fern has 1260 chromosomes, and a male jack jumper ant only has 1 chromosome! I have no idea what that means but sounds nifty.

    @Andrew155: Revise your knowledge of STD`s from a medical book before you risk others lives spreading ignorance. Unless you lack pores or a meatus, then it doesn`t just sit around the outside growing like some fungus.

    The first guy is an idiot: More DNA =/= BETTER!
    It = different!

    The second guy at least makes sense.

    DNA is nifty stuff! It`s quite possible it pre-dates our Solar System...

    Holy shiite, I never said it prevented aids and other std`s. It cuts the risk. That`s well documented and that`s why it`s a growing practice in aids affected regions.

    Read.

    If you`re less academic.

    NYC agrees that it cuts risk.

    A real scientist who is a Christian discusses Chromosome 2:
    And that scientist makes erroneous assumptions. The specific AT/CG pairing in DNA allows genes on one chromosome to attract to similar genes on another chromosome. When chromosomes pair up in mitosis and meiosis, this mechanism works despite the fact that the chromosomes differ slightly because the mother`s and father`s inherited DNA are not identical. The allelomorphic forms of a gene differ at a very small fraction of their places if they differ at all, as does happen in a significant percentage of genes (a condition for that locus called heterozygosity). When 2A & 2B fuse together, it creates a super-chromosome which attracts a 2A and 2B to the right places. This means that chromosome fusion doesn`t affect either mitosis or meiosis. It is effectively a neutral mutation, which means it has a chance of becoming the norm in the population.

    @carmium: You should listen! At least a little... it`s like antibodies: it builds up your immunity to bullshiite!!
    (and it is pure crapola...)

    Where`s Crakrjak?
    Be nice @davymid! iirc? @CrakrJak believes in evolution, just like me! However we both believe in God too. Different "Gods" but "THE All CREATOR" nonetheless!

    @LordJim: Hits. Comments. Clicks. Alleviates boredom? Sometimes...

    @Andrew155: I know what you meant, but the "science" is a -bit- sketchy...

    VV Um, What @patchy said! (Not that I have a clue what that is...)

    Evolution is not proven fact. MICRO-evolution is proven. The Bible is not proven fact, either. Evolution is accepted by those who don`t believe in a higher power, while creationism is accepted by those do.
    I do love to see dumb people agree with either side because it makes them feel smarter.
    Just live your life and quit acting as though you had a hand in discovering proof for either side. That`s the dumbest part of the whole argument of evolution/creationism. Who are you pleading your case to?
    Show FACTS or leave it alone. There are plenty of holes in either side`s arguments.
