Biology (lots of anatomy, cellular bio, limited plant bio), Chemistry (mostly bio-chem and some organic-chem), and some rudimentary physics (a little bit more on the theoretical particle side). Almost clueless when it comes to astrophysics (when it comes to gravity and light I'm lost for the most part).

multicellular organisms are incredibly complex, at least mammals are. the immune response alone was bewildering, and the brain is one of the least understood things in the universe.

@existentialist. I can tell you have a strong scientific background. what is your most comfortable area?

so... is that the end of this? I thought I brought that same point up when I made the evolution thread especially for you @dalton.

single cells didn't evolve into multicellular ogranisms. single cells evolved into the cells of multicellular organisms.

many single celled bacteria live in colonies, example biofilm. something like biofilm evolved into the cooperative that is a complex multicellular organism.


therefore, a bacteria need not evolve into a human, it need only evolve into a human cell that works together with other cells, which bacteria do in simpler forms all the time.

Why do you suppose organisms are too complex? I don't know how to engage in this debate without first hearing an actual challenge to the notion that organisms evolved.

anyone saying that something is too complex to have evolved doesn't understand how evolution works.

If you disagree with the statement above, let's have this debate with out bringing God into it for the sake of intellectual honesty.
