My "childish misunderstanding"? Uh, Mr. Nelson, I think I understand very well that frogs produce frogs and cows produce cows, and there are no exceptions. And I understand and make real clear to people, no fossil counts. No fossil counts for anything in a court of law, in an honest court of law. When you find a fossil in the ground, all you can prove is it died. None of the fossils I have seen (and we've got a huge collection of them here), none of them have a date stamped on them, none of them talk. You put interpretation on them, but your interpretation is not part of the fact. The fact is, this comes from a critter that died. That's the fact. Now if you want to add more to that, you're welcome to of course, but that's no longer science. So there are no fossils that would count in an honest court of law; every fossil would be thrown out. You can't say, "this is intermediate between these two"; you don't know that! You don't know if that fossil had any children at all. How could you possibly prove that? This is where you guys run off on imagination like Spongebob.

"No fossil counts for anything in a court of law, in an honest court of law."

Unlike tax records, eh Kent?

Fossils talk, you just have to listen. "No fossil counts" is just you trying to change the rules because we have the fossils.

Now lemme 'splain something. Do you look exactly like your great-great-100-more-great grandpa? You don't know. You will never know. All you know is that you had an ancestor back then, because if you didn't, you'd not be here. Do you have any children? If you do, then YOU are a transitional form. You are intermediate between your parents and your children. It's that simple. We can't tell if a fossil had children, but we know each of them had ancestors, the same way that all living things have them.

If you wanted to disprove that your understanding of evolution was childish, then you have failed miserably.

The guy who began his supposed scientific paper with "Hello, my name is Kent Hovind" is trying to tell others what is science, and what isn't?

Quite a few bone fragments have been used in courts of law, to determine who killed the person who used to "own" them.
Fossils are just bones that have transformed into "stone".

We can say that you're the intermediate between your parents and your children. We know you had children (or at least that your wife had children, I don't know if they have been checked to contain your DNA), and as you exist, we know you had ancestors, parents.

Spongebob runs off on imagination? Well, you run off on childish myths and fairy-tales, you tax-evader.

You understand that frogs produce frogs but don't understand evolution

You know you're presenting a solid argument when you reference Spongebob.

No wonder Kent doesn't understand evolution, when he himself is so devolved.

You do have a childish misunderstanding if you think that evolutionary theory claims that dogs give birth to cats, etc. Frogs produce frogs and cows do produce cows, however give it a million years and the distant descendants of the animal you call a cow will likely be totally unrecognizable.

And for someone who spent 10 years in prison, you shouldn't be talking about your prowess in a court of law.
