@Blink – If there was as much evidence as you claim via “fossil records, biochemistry, molecular biology, etc” then it would not be call the THEORY of Evolution. It would be LAW.
As a biomedical major, I’ve spent plenty of time learning about so called proof. Although all reasonable scientist understand macro-scale evolution (primordial soup becomes humans, not micro-scale i.e. a wolf becomes a German Shepard) as being theory alone, college texts and professors teach macro-scale evolution like it is law.
Your “proof” found in Biochem, such as, proteins found throughout all living creatures contain the same amino acids, is not only supportive of macro-scale evolution but also support the Creationist idea of a common Creator.
Since neither macro-scale evolution or creation can be scientifically proven after the fact it requires supporters of each theory to have faith or belief in said theory. For example, I believe that “In the beginning God..” while you BELIEVE “In the beginning primordial soup..”
Since the beginning of this debate there have been several monetary rewards all over the internet, offered for PROVING THE THEORY OF MACRO-EVOLUTION. You, my friend, can make over $250,000 for proving it. Be sure to note your screen name when you receive your reward so you can rub all our faces in it! Good luck!

Is all of Congress, the Senate and Executive branch toddlers? “Son, don’t be giving bullies rocks to throw at you.” Actually I doubt that’s ever been said since 4 year old kids are smarter than that.

A physician’s job and oath require him/her to keep people alive. If there is significant risk of death to the patient over a optional procedure that is in no way necessary to keep said patient alive, such as abortion or in Kanye West’s mother’s case breast augmentation, then the possible revoking of professional license should certainly be investigating. Certainly pro-life supporters will rally behind this as 2 individuals, one innocent, lost their lives. As I would expect pro-abortion supporters to call for a physician’s license if the physician refuse to perform an abortion on a pregnant woman who died due to complications of pregnancy but had asked for the life and in this case threat to be eliminated. To expect otherwise is simply ignorant but expected of JRook.

I am a Christian and I completely understand what you are saying. We may disagree on some things but please understand that there are plenty of compassionate Christian out there that LOVE ALL of God’s creation.

After reading the comments on here, from people I agree with >90% of the time, I really don’t understand why more conservative Christians aren’t against animal testing or aren’t at the least concerned with regulation of the testing.
I always thought we were the ones that took the moral high ground. How on earth is supporting this kind of torture for the mere means of finding a new facial cream that clogs less pores, moral? I believe that we are the ‘stewards’ of God’s creation. How is any of this Godly?
Many test animals never have never seen sunlight, grass, gotten to run and play with toys or each other. Maybe they can’t do cognitive reasoning or calculate the surface area of the ball they are playing with, but does that mean they are not entitled to enjoy the existence that is their life?
I know I will get bashed for this post which is fine by me, at least I have the choice to say something to you and try to get you to look at it from a different perspective.
Watch the below videos of test animals being free of the lab for the first time and tell me it doesn’t make you smile. Let’s start being the moral leaders of this nation instead of opposing any movement or beliefs that might be similar to our liberal counterparts. Please consider your beliefs and the difference between right and wrong before falling in line with the majority. http://youtu.be/IFtJeKojFfI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F5a0g5WSi8
Give me a break. Why would I be against it? Better them than me. They are NOT HUMAN BEINGS. Why is that so hard to understand? They are trying to compare humans to animals, sry, never works. I do not condone torture of animals, however using them to test stuff on is the only thing we got, other than using humans. So even if you don't like it you must understand they are still, and always will be JUST an animal.
I think its mostly because of two things. Firstly, many conservatives have so much antipathy against liberals that they will be against anything liberals are for, just because liberals are for it. The same goes of liberals. Tons of OWSers HATE the tea party even though they agree on some things. Why? Because they are conservatives.
The other reason is that liberals have such a long and detailed track record of being full of s*** about things that I think that most people done BELIEVE them that this kind of thing even goes on at all. I think that most people assume that they are exaggerating a great deal what actually goes on with the animals. Personally, I would have a very, very difficult time believing that they weren't embellishing the truth here. I doubt that having cosmetics tested on you as an animal is really all that bad at all. I could be wrong, but thats my first impression of the situation.
Because people were made in God's image and are more important than animals who have no soul? Guess you want to close down feedlots and stop eating meat too? And those poor poor vegetables.............
I too am a born again Christian and I am appalled at the vitrol that passes for conversation on this forum especially disheartening is that from some who say they are followers of Yeshua(Jesus). We are told in Proverbs that a righteous person regards the life of an animal.(Prov 12:10) The Bible says that if we are born again we should have a new nature and by that nature (Ref 2nd Cor 5:17) we should give glory to God and others should want to know the God we serve. Attributes like love, joy, peace, gentlesness, longsuffering are supposed to be evident in us. That's the good fruit of having the Holy Spirit of God running our lives not our old carnal nature (Ref Gal 5 :22) Cosmetic testing on animals is not necessary and is done for completely monitary reasons. I choose not to wear cosmetics that have been tested on animals. The Draize test or the LD 50 are both outmoded, unscientific and do not yield any data that is applicable to human beings. There are alternatives to utilizing animals. This young woman was drawing attention to the fact that these companies which agreed to phasing out this animal testing have not carried out what they said they would do.
Glad I could make your day!
Are you sure that an earthworm wants to see the light of the sun--especially with no eyes. Are you sure that a rat wants to go outside and play with it's toys? And how about the cow that's testing the artificial heart . . . . does it really want to run and play with it's owner, the farmer? I believe in having compassion for animals, that's why I don't hunt. I know how, but I choose not to because at the present time, I can buy meat from the supermarket. I use catch and release when I fish (with barbless hooks, no bigger than 1/8th of an inch long). I will take one, count 'em, ONE fish home for dinner that evening. I don't molest animals. I hate cats--house cats, but I don't torture them, nor am I mean-spirited to them . . . they are God's creation. I have taught my boys not to hunt small birds with their BB guns, nor jack-rabbits, coyotes, or any other animal that is considered a "varmint" because they are God's handiwork, and fulfill an important niche in the grand scheme of nature.
However, I would prefer that animals be used to test new drugs, or medical procedures than humans. Hitler's SS performed hideous experiments on humans . . . we got valuable data from them, i.e. how to treat hypothermia, explosive decompression at high altitudes, etc., but they did these things to humans, against their will. So, without animal testing, we would still be plagued by polio, smallpox, some types of cancer, and other diseases. We wouldn't have penicillin ei

I’m sure they would much rather be wild, living free with the possibility of dying a much more “natural” death, than sitting in a cold cage, never seeing sunlight, getting scratched, poked and force fed.
I can tell you what I’d prefer anyways.

“The 10 Republicans voting against Ryan’s budget were Reps. Amash, Barton, Duncan (TN), Gibson, Huelskamp, Jones, McKinley, Platts, Rehberg, and Whitfield.”
Let’s not forget Richard Wurmbrand’s story and his faith in the face of torture and death. He was able to convert one of his communist captors, who then was able to help him gain his freedom. You can get a FREE copy of his story, Tortured for Christ, at http://www.persecution.com.
After fleeing communism for the freedom of the USA he started an organization called Voice of the Martyrs which serves persecuted Christians world wide. VoM is still very active today and is working closely with Asia Bibi’s family. You can find her and many other prisoner profiles at http://www.PrisonerAlert.com.

Do you know what part on the chicken is the nugget? Not only is incredibly nutritious (according to the USDA) but once you check out this link you’ll never get enough! Mmmm, wonderfully appetizing. Hot dogs and nuggets for all!!!
Whoa, @conservativeslie is such a bigot. Stop with the “***” jokes man, they show your hateful nature and immaturity.

Interesting results you have there. The NRA Political Victory Fund has them graded differently. http://www.nrapvf.org. I’ll stick with the NRA’s grading system as they even recommend Democrats sometimes as they only consider the candidates position on the 2nd Amendment and don’t allow any other platforms to persuade their grading.
Rick Perry A+
Rick Santorum A+
Michele Bachmann A
Ron Paul A-
Mitt Romney B
Newt Gingrich couldn’t find a grade for him under archives but he’s a progressive so I bet it’s a D or and F
