    False, it proves nothing, it is just evidence for it.

    It doesn't prove anything, but it's a whole step in the right direction compared to having NO EVIDENCE WHAT-SO-EVER...

    Answer: False. The DNA in bananas is 50% similar to human DNA, but no one would speculate that we are "half a banana." Although the field of comparative genetics has revealed some interesting facts about the similarities (and differences) of DNA among different species, it says nothing about the origin of our DNA or the historical relationship between species.

    3. Fill in the blank. Respected evolutionist, David Kitts, said, "Despite the bright promise that paleontology provides a means of 'seeing' evolution, it has presented some nasty difficulties for evolutionists the most nasty difficulties for evolutionists the notorious of which is the presence of 'gaps' in the fossil record. Evolution requires_________ between species and paleontology does not provide them."
    A. missing links.
    B. much more fossil evidence.

    Answer:
    C. intermediate forms.
    [Evolution, vol. 28, 1974, p.467]
    Although faced with no paleontological way to show one species changing into another, Kitts holds on to his belief in evolution.

    No scientist is suggesting we're 98% chimps either, we are human, different species altogether...we just share 98% of their genetic code.

    True, in respect to the universe as a whole.


    Don't try to make that as an excuse to say evolution is impossible though, quite clearly water can be pumped uphill...

    Answer: True. Essentially this means that things eventially "wear out." The universe is not eternal; it had a beginning, and will eventually wear out. Two-and-a-half-tohousand years before the birth of modern science, when the brightest thinkers were confident that the universe was eternal, the Bible said that the universe would "wear out:"...the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment" (psalm 102:25,26).
