While there is certainly proof that mutations do occur in nature; There is absolutely no real evidence to support the theory of evolution at this time (for over the past 150 years of "Dino-digging"). Including the sedimentary column.

There probably is evidence to support this theory, yet scientist are at a loss to explain it appropriately.

Scientist are great at making shit up when they have no evidence to prove something that is false to begin with.

I believe in Santa. He's a real person that lives all the way deep at the north pole and brings me presents every year. The presents prove that he's real. I also leave him milk and cookies to snack on and while I don't ever see him, I just know with all my heart, that he is the one who eats all the cookies and milk. Or, I wish I had a dogasaur like Dino.

Boy, what some people are willing to dish out for a lie?

You know why they cost so much?

Because they are often named by Universities as required texts or core reading material.

Incidentally Universities are also free to decide what they teach (compared to government prescribed curriculum in most [western] schools). Therefore it is in their best interests to select reading and course material that comes from highly reputable sources - after all brand is nearly everything for a University: better brand, more students paying more money.

So high prices on evolution textbooks compared creationist texts may suggest as to which "area" is more reputable ;)

Price is no indicator of truth on matters of religion and science,

but the rest of your post AND price is certainly suggestive... :D

Oh sure, but how can I justify spending >1 minute per post for that troll?

I wouldn't put it past him that he eats his own shite because cult members do perform odd rituals.

I'll put the same amount of effort into your videos as you do mine (and by the way I just picked a full length episode from that show at random, I don't actually have any idea what topics specifically they discuss in there)

When you provide me with a 3,500 year old Hebrew word for "Sphere!"

You know what CB, You sure do talk a lot of shit yourself. I am wondering if you practice eating shit, the way that you have mention it so many times already? Does that turn you on? You probably even have your own videos of yourself documenting the act; Don't Ya?

But that's besides the point. If there is no ancient Hebrew word for Sphere, then just what the hell are the ancients suppose to say to describe the earth?

But they do have several words for Flat! so if they in any ways thought that the earth was flat and circular like a pancake, then why did they not say so?

Try answering the question if you can rather than talking all that "shit!"

Which only proves my point that the word Circle in Isaiah 40:22 is talking about an equatorial line around the earth. Because the earth is not being compared to anything. The Circle of the earth is the Equator of the earth. Then the question becomes, How did these ancient people know that there was an Equator? Unless this was revealed and common knowledge among them.

"[It is] he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, ..."
-Isaiah 40:22
