I think it is a good time to ask you a few questions too.

1) You say that you "want to believe evolution is real," why?

2) If you "want to" it suggests you don't currently believe in it. What do you believe in with respect to the diversity and relationships among living organisms?

3) You've been given several well thought out replies and additional subsequent information and sources to help you. Have you begun digging through the literature outside of the responses given here on TTA?

RE: I'm having problems believing in evolution
After a brief interlude (of several hours), I finished binge-watching his stuff. He seems kinda depressed that he never developed a serious follower-base on YouTube, at the end, though he's quite professional about how he deals with the poor numbers...mainly the mention is in reaction to Creationists who teased him in the comments section about how few subscribers he had. It really is a shame. He made a few scientific mistakes, in a couple of the videos, but he owned up honestly to the corrections people sent him and posted corrections. He put a lot of work into the series, and I feel like his numbers are in no way a reflection of how well he did on those videos.

So I subscribed to his channel. Since YouTube people make their money from subscriptions and likes, I'd like to ask all of you to go click on that video, above, and subscribe to the channel, and click like on a bunch of his videos. That guy deserves it. If nothing else, it'll let him know that TTA's membership saw his work and that we were impressed.

I didn't read this whole thread but it's an obvious troll

A good thing to do would to get a geology 201 level course book on Historical Geology. The long history of Earth is also the history of life on Earth and paleontology. Over the 3 billion or so years of life on Earth, evolution is hard to avoid as an explanation.

Or how about viruses & viral DNA ? Do you think you have a good understanding about that ? I don't, but do understand some of the basic concepts.






I personally find it fascinating that a woman's ability to have a child is due to a bit of DNA from a virus.

Without that, placental mammals wouldn't exist as they do today.

What do you think a human being would look like without all that DNA from viruses over the past few million years ?

How would you even go about designing a modern day human without using viral DNA ?

Just wondering if u could point me in the right direction so I can read up on how a virus cause when to be able to give birth. Thanks you

Hey purpledaisies! Big Grin

Sorry for dropping late to the thread.

I think what RocketSurgeon76 is saying that there's an aspect to the human cell that only came about because of some interaction between cells way back in the past.

Hope that helps. Also hope some one like RocketSurgeon76 will pop back in and help your understandings. Thumbsup

I'm here, but I literally don't understand the question. I only speak English and French. Tongue
