Evolution of WOOD
Can an evolutionist please explain to me how and why WOOD evolved????

FACT: Plants are made of leaves and stems and do not contain any wood.

Evolutionists claim that trees did not evolve for 15 million years after the first plants appeared.

So why did it take so long for wood to evolve why plants would have benefited from having a height advantage over their competitors from the moment they first appeared???

'Poe4Life', 'Nuts4Life', both are good. Either way, I've got something - inspired by the 'Piranha Bros.' sketch in "Monty Python" and something said in an episode of "Top Gear" - that'll be perfect, should she ever deign to show her face round here again.

And as far as she's concerned, it'll be the equivalent of rubbing a pet's nose in the pile of poo they've just made on the living room/kitchen/etc floor; to impress upon them that doing so isn't a good idea.

cellulose disagrees.

There is no advantage to be much, much higher than everything else, stupid. The wind would cut you down quickly. There might be an advantage to be a little bit higher than your competitors, but still have the protection of their stems against the wind, for most of your height. That is why it took 15 million years, or whatever, to get the very, very high trees that we have today; they needed very high trees to support them.

To my knowledge trees are large plants, made of leaves and stems.

English isn't my first language, but isn't wood (used in the singular) the raw product you get when you cut down trees? If he meant large collections of trees, shouldn't he have said "Evolution of WOODS" (using the plural)?
