micro-evolution = evolution none the less. If micro can happen than macro can happen. In your terms.

its possible to argue that reproduction is evolution of cells at a high rate.

A lesson for you all.
The scientific method.
1. Choose and define the natural phenomenon that you want to figure out and explain.
2. Collect information (data) about this phenomena by going where the phenomena occur and making observations. Or, try to replicate this phenomena by means of a test (experiment) under controlled conditions (usually in a laboratory) that eliminates interference’s from environmental conditions.
3. After collecting a lot of data, look for patterns in the data. Attempt to explain these patterns by making a provisional explanation, called a hypothesis.
4. Test the hypothesis by collecting more data to see if the hypothesis continues to show the assumed pattern. If the data does not support the hypothesis, it must be changed, or rejected in favor of a better one. In collecting data, one must NOT ignore data that contradicts the hypothesis in favor of only supportive data.
5. If a refined hypothesis survives all attacks on it and is the best existing explanation for a particular phenomenon, it is then elevated to the status of a theory.
Thanks for cleaing up things for everyone. I just hope these religious thick skulls get the memo before they result back to their programed mind function
Also, a theroy is nothing more than a guess

@Henri, A “Bigot” is a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions. Over all that points to you the most out of all the comments I have read. Many who are for evolution are having a discussion on the topic who are providing explanations that of which you are intolerant enough not to have a complete dialog with whom partake.
As for evolution, the proof is everywhere. Insects are becoming immune to certain pesticides that is evolution. When a bacteria becomings isolated and found in a toxic environment it either changes or dies and it picks the obvious option of living.
Humans are not perfect, we have terrible eye sight, organs that don’t function or don’t have a use for, and if we are of gods master engineering then why the hell do we have one tube for eating and breathing? Obviously that would be a flaw that would be most obvious seeing as people can die from choking. Then again we don’t want to see ourselves as ugly so why not sugar coat our life as perfect.

“Most readers no longer understand the word ‘man’ to be synonymous with ‘person,’ so clear communication requires writers to be more precise.”
Then start teaching people English!

@travish325 Yes, mister gestapo. We will do what ever you say. Nothing bad will happen if I just cooperate and get on the train.

The 1st amendment. It may not be nice words she speaks but its protected. Just means you can say it back to the person that disrespected you lol.
Understandable that speeding in a school zone is frowned upon I live not even a block away from a school. Only traffic in the morning and after school is from parent pick up and the buses coming in an out. The children never cross the street or leave the school grounds to walk home since its an elementary school.
On another topic of traffic control and speed restrictions. I do believe it is time that speed limits be increased country wides as most speed limits in place have been the same since the about the 50′s. Cars now a’days have better safety features and more control over the road then they did in the past. Of course I wouldn’t be opposed to a speed limit sign that had a normal driving limit and a bad/extreme weather speed limit listed underneath it.
Come to pa, the school speed limit is 15 mph, very difficult to do 15 in a manual car.
It's not the cars - it's the drivers. You can have the safest car in the world but if you're a lousy (or indifferent) driver, bad things are still going to happen. Kinda the same with guns!

Declaration of Independence – “Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”
Homosexually is confusing but it exists and should not be scorned. It is liberty that gives these people that right to marriage and should have been long ago without question or bigotry that no one shall push their religious views on others.
Simply put if you don’t support simply equality you are for and okay with government controlling every aspect of your life.
If you are not for liberty you are a fascist or statist and or communist. Either one will suit you as you want another to lord over you and tell you what you can or can’t do.
This can be applied to all aspects of life to firearms, drugs, property, etc etc.
Marriage was not created by governments.
Rights were not created by governments.
Men were not created by governments.
Men don’t get to decide and form what rights are. Rights are inherent and natural. They are not bestowed nor created by government.
Marriage is a natural institution founded on the formation of man. The government didn’t create man, so the government can’t decide what is marriage, just as it cant decide who is man (human). It can only acknowledge and recognize.
Our nation has drifted far from following the Rule of Law. In this nation, it seems nobody seeks the Truth anymore.
Our Declaration had it right, but according to your logic, it’s no more applicable. We can’t rely on Divine Providence. We can’t appeal to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude of our actions. We can’t govern ourselves by the Laws of Nature. And we can’t do anything our nation was once most fond of abs renown for. It is a sad day for America.
How have non-christian cultures, above the tribal level, dealt with homosexuals in the past? Say China, India, Egypt, Persia, Babylon, The Huns and so forth. What did they do about Marriage and Homosexuality and Married Homosexuals in their society?
NOBODY has ever said or used them as an example. Could it be they do NOT support what some would now call, "enlightened"? All TOTALLY non-Christian and before Christian and Western influence could be said to "corrupt" their UNIQUE value systems arrived at over centuries of trial and error for the perpetuation of their own 'Civil Society'.
rogue, government has just taken your right to object because your conscience is subject to government. The reality is you have to do what the government say s or lose your property, wealth and liberty. Not to mention that the Bill of Rights is subject to judges interpretation, not the stated law. The Constitution is up to what ever tyrant gets in office. This isn't going to end well.

@Apple Bite, marriage has been around for thousands of years before Christianity.

Reagan also signed the Mulford Act into law in California. Reagan was not pro-2nd amendment.

@ax2grind – Their slogan does not appear to be exclusive to fitness.
@momflower – No where in the article did it note that the trans-gendered person was walking around with it hanging out if they even have one. I’ll add that most people don’t take off their underwear while changing at the gym.
I also like how most of the stuff I’ve been reading here is very assumption based. Like how did it escalate to them being nude? or about it being in the shower? I mean come on.

Lady should have minded her own business. “It’s now very common to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that.’ As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing more… than a whine. ‘I find that offensive.’ It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. ‘I am offended by that.’ Well, so ******* what.”

Live and let live. If there is no harm then there should not be any problem.
@ax2grind – “no judgment” is in the contract, she broke the contract, simple. It is no ones right to control someone else. She had a right to go somewhere else if she did not like the policies of the gym.
@GBOC – bakeries and florists should as well but bureaucracy had a hand in those situation which is unfortunate. This situation is not the same and every instance of happenstance should not be treated unilaterally. A company should have policies and standards and they should have a right to change such standards if and when they want.
Being against this situation and siding with this women might as well place you in the same boat as the lesbians who wanted a cake. Just because you don’t like the situation doesn’t mean its wrong.
