Do evolutionists owe us an apology?
Will the population on Answers that keep acting like evolution is a law rather than a theory ignore this evidence and continue to make unfounded claims? Will the schools continue to teach the theory as is? News clip: The old theory is that the first and oldest species in our family tree, Homo habilis, evolved into Homo erectus, which then became human, Homo sapiens. But Leakey's find suggests those two earlier species lived side-by-side about 1.5 million years ago in parts of Kenya for at least half a million years. She and her research colleagues report the discovery in a paper published in Thursday's journal Nature. John Doe, is it not clear that the scientists who are doing this research know that evolution is a theory and not a law? Did I say that public schools need to teach religion? What you refer to as evolutionism is exactly what I was taught in high school to be the theory of evolution. Just as we change due to our environment, scientific theory must change due to the evidence. Please step off the creationism band wagon. What I am asking you is whether the schools are going to continue to teach evolution AS A RELIGION like they did when I was there or are they going to teach the science of examining the relationship between life and environment.

That doesnt disprove the theory. That just suggests that our idea on our earliest ancestor is not accurate. And it doesnt seem to be that positive as to its claim anyways. However I agree with you that people here are generally in utter denial that evolution is a theory and not a fact.

Please, please, please - for goodness' sake, _please_ learn something about what you're talking about before you spout any more of this nonsense. _You_ should probably apologize for wasting valuable space on this stuff.

for that news clip... was that about the Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnons? of course they lived side by side for many years. thats what happens when species split. evolution is a law actually. its just basic common sense that things adapt to their environments. i think you may be confusing evolution with...

LOL...if you had read the article you'd know that this evidence supports the theory of evolution. A fossil finding that is different doesn't mean the evolution is wrong. The theory of evolution as a process of natural selection doesn't change. But thanks for trying to play at this level. Bye now.

actually neither evolution or creationism is a scientific theory - a scientific theory must be supported by experimentation. we have never yet been able to recreate macro-evolution or creation by a supreme being. therefore they are both just historic theories: pure conjecture. the question is : which view requires less...

Dude- you're referencing an article titled "Fossils challenge old evoluton(sic) theory." Could you possibly see a problem here? Hmm?
