I am well aware that science has done many good things. I was contradicting the fact that all the good things religion has done seem to get ignored for the bad things it's done, which are even condemned by the current church.
But again, science can do no wrong and religion has done nothing positive to our society.
It isnt about whether religion has done wrong or right. It's how truthful it can be. And the church rightly gets condemned for the atrocious acts it has done in the past. Specifically when we now know better.
There is a logical fallacy in this argument. If a homo-sapien sapien can reproduce with generation x-1, x-1 must also be homo-sapien sapien (using your definition of a species). Using induction we cannot have evolved from a previous species, which we know to be false.
Sigh.. You are so stubborn..
Think about molding a pot out of clay. You cant really say when the clay first became a pot because from the start to the end, the clay remains a work in progress. All you can do is watch as the pot takes shape/ I would like to see you try to estimate when the clay first became a pot. Nearly impossible. Do you get what we are trying to tell you? Seriously, this has become 'a shove it down your throat' situation with you because your mind cant seem to fathom such simple analogy. It's not that hard to understand.
you brought it up. I have shown that homo sapiens weren't even in the areas as most other homonids, specifically our closest related species, at the same time as those homonids with scientific evidence. Suddenly my argument is off topic.
I didnt bring it up. Stop putting words in my mouth. You were asked to produce some proof of your statement and as a response you produced an article stating the SAME assumptions that I have made. The irony..
Look, it's a logical assumption, modern humans may have mated with other human species, taking on some of their traits in the process. If two species who have millions of years of evolutionary divergence such as a donkey and a horse can mate and produce offspring, who's to say that modern humans could not mate and produce offspring with other human species, especially the neanderthalis who were only evolving separately from us by some 200 thousand years at the very most.
No, you have not shown that homo sapiens werent even in the areas as most other homonids. We were, go check the digging grounds of human fossils. Infact, we have found our ancestors fossils in the same caves as those of other homonids species such as the homo erectus and neanderthals. If that doesnt show enough solid evidence that we were living and breathing in close proximity of other human species, I dont know what else will.
May I suggest that we get back on topic because you are arguing a point that I will not concede and trying and failing to out argue me on this point is wasting yours and my time.
