What are some examples of mutation? Well, breast cancer, prostate cancer, skin cancer, etc... Therefore, most people have a hard time believing breast cancer eventually turned an ameboid into a hump back whale.

Well, you have to remember that it took a long time to happen, because those amoeboids have such tiny breasts.

I love how he blithely (and implicitly) assumes that all mutations are harmful. Without the slightest hint of proof, I might add.

The immunity to heart disease and high blood pressure is an example.

Cancer is a cell thats does not die. The Cell just continues mitosis without cell death. Cancer is not a mechanism for natural selection.

IIRC, most mutations are neutral, and offer neither an advantage nor a disadvantage. Some, such as the cited examples, are harmful, but there are far more benign ones, and many are beneficial (although they are, IIRC, less common than the malignant ones).

What are some examples of creation? Well, HIV, Small Pox, Bubonic Plague, etc...* Therefore, most people have a hard time believing the guy who created AIDS also created humans.

What a fucking dumbass. Yes, mutations in oncogenes can cause cancer. That is not the only kind of mutation.

I have problems believing that, too.
Can we start talking about evolution now?
