Michael Jackson said it best when he sang... "Ben most people would turn you away, I don't listen to a word they say, They don't see you as I do, I wish they would try to..."

Pick anything... I mean anything - and you can make a compelling case that we evolved from it! Here are my problems that no strict evolutionist can give a coherent answer to: Where did matter come from? How do we get life from non-life? Hint: The answer to both questions is the same :^)

303P, no, Willard was the guy in the 1971 film and the 2003 film. Ben has always been a rat.

But to answer the question, don't we share 99% of the same DNA as an earthworm?

People who don't want to bother to learn anything answer everything with that same lame answer.
