    Now that the industrial revolution is in full swing, they have come up with what they call the 90% theory. This theory says that in a lot of cases it is cheaper to throw away 10% of what you manufacture then it is to try and hit a 100% efficency rate.

    So evolutionists are trying to apply this efficiency to evolution. They say that it is easier for put out 90% efficient species. Then dump the 10% or make a adjustment so they can not reproduce. That way evolution can dump all of the errors in that 10% in order to get rid of them.

    :scratch: Who is "they", and how are they "applying" this "efficiency" to evolution?

    Was there an actual question here, point of discussion, or was it just rambling?

    And for my own personal edification, are you in the regular habit of abandonding threads when you get called out to present evidence? Just want to know before I waste more time in 3 or 4 more threads where you subsequently leave when we started trying to get you to back up your claims.

    I think Led Zeppelin said it best on side 2 of their second album..."it's time to ramble on..."

    No, you are thinking of Ambrosia's debut album, OneEighty.

    I am the one that wastes a lot of time on here because no one knows anything about evolutionary theory. Even most Phds in Biology know very little about it.

    The subject here is "COST". The cost of evolution. The way science works is you have to KNOW the keywords. That is also the way Google works. So if you memorize KEY words then you can find information about that very fast in this day and age.

    In this case we are talking about COST along with EVOLUTION or NATURAL SELECTION. The tread is wide open to anything that has to do with the "cost" Here is an example:

    Do a little research on what evolutionists have to say about the COST of evolution. While evolution maybe a strawmen theory I am not the author. Evolutionists are the ones that invent evolutionary theory. The more I study it, the more I learn about it, the more I realize that the average person knows nothing about it or almost nothing about it. Even people with Phds know almost nothing about it, outside of the area they are researching.

    For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

    With almost 22,000 posts I think John has resorted to creating his arguments with a Madlibs book.

    Do you think that maybe, just MAYBE, that it might be your idea of evolution is incorrect, meaning that your assertions about evolution don't match up to what others say?

    Just a thought.

    Maybe Evos have come to realize that their theory is incorrect. They use to try and defend it, but they do not try to defend it anymore.

    Yeah, 22,000 posts and I still have not shown creationism to be true. But at least I have proven evolution to be false.

    Megalomaniasism is a horrible, horrible thing to watch in anyone else.

    When it finally takes hold the person always feel it's "them against the world." That "they know more than people that actually study the topic."

    It's incredible to watch because it's rare, and you can't hardly believe what you are seeing.

    I can't believe what I am seeing.

    Are you debating against the TOE based on the fact that "evolutionists" believe it doesn't break the 2nd LOT? Or am I not understanding your post at all?

    Sorry, I stopped at this. It's impossible to take someone seriously when they post about technological developments in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as if they just now hit the scene.

    Moore's Law says that the number of transitors on a chip doubles every 18 months. So are the evolutionists applying this theory? If evolution was correct, the number of neuron connections in a brain should be doubling every 18 months, but according to phrenology, this has not been the case. Therefore, evolution is false.
