Quote# 3046

Now, I don't know why you want me to 'proove you wrong' when you haven't even established that you're right! But I will do my best to explain 'why we would expect a more 'highly evolved' organism to possess more chromosomes.' Okay, first of all, if we Evolution then we would expect that the most 'highly evolved' creature would have the most chromosomes. Right? Then it would be logical then to conclude that, if we are truely 'evolving' then some of us would be ferns, since we would get more complex the more we evolve.

You can't glow in the dark like a jellyfish, therefore since the jellyfish has something over you, it is automatically ranked above you. That should be right according to your theory.

\"Okay, first of all, if we Evolution then we would expect that the most 'highly evolved' creature would have the most chromosomes. Right?\"

Wrong... but don't let reality distract you.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and ummmm, WRONG!

By your reasoning, the fact that two paris of our chromosomes fused together, we infact devolved from our common chimpanzee ancestor!

Chromosomes are merely divisions. Polyploidy is not a sign of intelligence or sophistication!

-------------------------------

Says who? People with Down's Syndrome have an extra chromosome; would you consider them \"more evolved\" than normal people? Learn the correct mechanisms of biology before you try to discuss it; as with most things in life, it's not always a case of \"more = better.\"

Oh, and when did \"Evolution\" become the verb form?!? Sheesh!

Wrong. (Not only are you wrong, but you just said you were going to explain why. I see no attempt at an explanation.)

<<< if we are truely 'evolving' then some of us would be ferns >>>

That phrase is incoherent. If by \"us\" you mean humans, those who happened to be ferns wouldn't be part of \"us\", now, would they? And if you mean all living organisms instead, then guess what? Some of \"us\" are ferns.

<<< since we would get more complex the more we evolve. >>>

Complexity is only desirable to the extent that it is useful. Otherwise it's just one more thing that could go wrong (see appendicitis for an example).

Cousin Ted, apparently ferns have about 400 chromosomes - this whole argument is one of Hovind's little gems.

I'm holly and my moms fern, I guess she's more evolved then the rest of us.

Julian, did you hear Kent Hovind is in jail now? He never was one to let facts, or the law for that matter, get in his way. I used to have a video of him claiming that Bush Sr. was part of the \"new world order\" and had plans to reduce the earth's population to 500 million by the year 2000. Nice

I had an Aunt Fern. I guess she was more evolved than you.
