RE: The Most Asinine Challenge to Evolution You've Ever Heard
I just checked our Peanut butter. There IS new life in it. A genie popped out and said Missler is a fraud. In fact the LA times reported that he plageriarized part of his book, (per Wiki) "A Los Angeles Times article reported that Missler and co-author Hal Lindsey plagiarized a portion of Professor Ed Yamauchi's 1982 book Foes From the Northern Frontier in their own 1992 book The Magog Factor. He also lost his life savings, (many millions), in a deal-gone-bad with the Soviet Union, and now makes all his money doing the "religion thing". He's a great expert on UFology, and how the ancient Earth was visited by aliens, etc etc. Obviosly he never took a Biology course.

Which god made no life in the peanut butter? I think you successfully proved Quetzalcoatl.

I thought it interesting to note that the chimpanzee lifespan is around 40-50, usually 45 at the max. Although, captive individuals have lived into their 60s. I agree that diet plays a large part. Not to mention the fact that we deal with less stress than our predecessors, which aids in extending our years.

Considering how much of our DNA is an exact match with chimps, I find no surprise that our natural (without modern medical intervention) lifespans would be more or less identical.

You know what's fucked up? When I was a christian, I actually thought this was an argument to settle all arguments. The only difference was that instead of peanut butter, it was a petri dish of pure water. Someone said that "no life would ever spring from this dish of water", and it wowed my gullible young mind.

Lifespans have been getting longer with recent advances in diet and healthcare. That's not evolution, it's science. Our evolution seems to put us at a lifespan of around 40-50 years, more or less. Yet we share DNA with tortoises and even with trees. Why didn't we inherit some of their longevity as the species diverged.

I can work out a couple quick answers in my mind, which might not be entirely correct, but I find this to be an interesting question and, to me, much better than some other theist stupidity like the whole "Why don't we ever see a crocaduck?" question. At least this question is based on actual science rather than ignoring actual science.
I don't know about you, but now that you've said that I'm -very- disappointed I've never seen a crocaduck. Weeping

Here's a pic:
[Image: Crocoduck.jpg]

And the official video (at about 4:20 if you don't want to watch the whole mind-numbing thing):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0DdgSDan9c

The real video is nearly 2 hours long. I watched it once and lost so much IQ that I don't recommend it to anyone (unless you just want to watch Kelly try not to fall out of her dress for two hours - I'm not dissing her, she acquitted herself very well in the debate, she's smart, she's knowledgeable, she debated well, but her attire and the mesmerizing cleavage it revealed left me a little distracted whenever the camera was on her).

Now for a real crocoduck:

Lol thanks for the pic.

I officially made it through 45 seconds of that video before I wanted to beat the snot out of Kirk Cameron and shut it off. What a load.

(Yes, you're right though, thats some impressive cleavage happening there)
