    Cell Theory
    Modern Atomic Theory
    String Theory
    Theory of Gravity
    Germ Theory
    Theory of General Relativity
    Theory of Special Relativity

    By trying to discredit evolution by stating that it is "just a theory", you really are just telling everyone that you are completely clueless about the difference between a normal theory and a scientific theory.
    In terms of testable theories I think you'll find plenty of physicists who put String Theory in the same bucket as Creationism ....

      I think this may add some perspective:

            Unfortunately, no it's not. That pic has been all over the Web for a few years. If I remember correctly, it is available at the Creationist Museum gift shop.

                I got in hot water over all this a few weeks ago, causing one poster to say he had "lost all respect for me." So I shall say no more other than I stand by my prior remarks.

                    I still consider you a friend (if you'll have me for one, of course :wink. I am also staying out of this, primarily because quite a few intelligent posts are trying to tell TD, what absurd position he claims to represent. I've been through this with him before and there is no amount of evidence that would change his mind. His oft reply is that there is "no evidence" :shock: .

                      Judging from that dinosaur`s color I believe dinosaurs evolved into the Hershey Bar.

                        Movieguide.org, an influential site that reviews films from a Christian perspective, described Darwin as the father of eugenics and denounced him as "a racist, a bigot and an 1800s naturalist whose legacy is mass murder". His "half-baked theory" influenced Adolf Hitler and led to "atrocities, crimes against humanity, cloning and genetic engineering", the site stated.

                          What is it you don't understand about THEORY lacking enough evidence to be called fact?

                              I guess, that says something about the "Christian perspective", if it really is that. Not one of those statements about Darwin is remotely correct. Ben Stein, in his attempt to a movie, tried the same approach and was widely demolished even by many conservative and Christian media outlets.

                                TD, it is with deep regret that I must inform you now that all the Kool Points you earned in SR's shout-out have now been used up, and you're on your own, buddy.
                                That Nazi reference, even with the cute emoticon, put you deep in the hole. Your only hope is for SR to dedicate 21010 to you and then break the 400 (and 200) record. Short of that, you're in a rapidly diminishing position.
