and more nonsense claiming that people haven't answered what he thinks are the "tough questions evolution poses".

The tough questions can't even be answered by "experts" on evolution.  Google search it.  It's what most do in here...post a quick link to prove a point.  But nobody likes to explain things for themselves.  If ALL the evidence points to evolution, then answer a question or two.  Step by step, how did the hummingbird evolve?  No wikipedia....just words.  You don't really have to, but if you want to that would be great.

I was just talking about that, not like I thought I knew something about it.

When you make a statement, people expect you to actually know what the hell you're talking about. Otherwise, you just look like an idiot

All I meant by that is I don't know how a man with a child could breastfeed the baby if the nipples can't get in the baby's mouth.

You don't actually have to get something in your mouth to suck it. You can simply put your lips around it
And, once again, that is most clearly not what was written. You should try writing what you mean

My God!  God exists in you - you were home-schooled, weren't you?  Don't worry - I used to be just like you.  Then I watched the science channel, discovery channel, etc. because I found them more fascinating than the other reality crap.  Then I started researching for myself.  I find physics most enjoyable.  If you want to expand your mind, the information is out there.  And no, nobody is worrying about how a hummingbird evolved from another form of bird..  If you want to hypothesize, why don't you study the dna variances?

Homeschooled for a few years...how is that applicable?  Against forum rules to post off-topic responses, btw. 

I watch the Science Channel all the time.  It blows your mind!  Science is awesome!

Why all the responses that I don't study or gather information?  Does everyone think I've never cracked a book in my life?  Come on!

A hummingbird evolved.  Still no answer to how.  And I'm the idiot?

You are not an idiot if you don't know how a hummingbird evolved. That's just ignorance. You are only an idiot if you think nobody can ever know how a hummingbird evolved, so why bother looking. That is willful stupidity. :P

Sorry about that, guys.  Rockv12 was following me around to different forum threads discussing a topic we were arguing back on a thread he/she started..

It wasn't meant to be brought to these other threads, my apologies.  The corrections and such have already been made on both our parts in the original thread.  And I was up pretty late arguing this - my brain was mush and wanted to scream - injustice!

The person probably saw how bad I had command of english and wanted to specifically start an argument with me.. btw

You just seem like you're trying to do homework without the work.  Most people here aren't biology majors, so don't know the specific geneology of hummingbirds.  The question doesn't even make sense.  Did you want all the steps between single celled life and a hummingbird?  Then what?

oh this is hilarious. I do love to see Christians lie for such petty thing.  It's so cute to see you do it, rockv12, and so nice to see you return to your own vomit.   Again, no dear, we don't have how hummingbirds evolved "step-by-step".  But we know that evolution works ever single time.  The fossil record goes from simple to complex over time.  We see how dinosaurs evolved into birds.  Then we know how birds have evolved to fit the various niches in the environment.  Pity yuo have nothing more than your god of hte gaps argument and of course no evidence that your god has done *anything*.  I have fossils, and evidence for evolution happening right now.  The prepondereance of the evidence sides with me.   And you've failed again.  Just myths that have no evdience to support them.  No evidence to support that your god is the only god responsible for this creation you claim, no evidence for the flood, the exodus, or the most important event in your religion, the resurrection.

No it doesn't. Birds aren't more complex than dinosaurs. You've fallen for the old creationist information propaganda trick, 99.

*bearing in mind that dinosaurs faced an extinction event where evolution may have had to start largely over..*

My car has a wiring loom with empty sockets where the built-in GPS, cruise control and electric seat go if I had bought the more expensive version. If I were to stick these gadgets in, they would work just as well as if the factory had fitted them.

Note how in male/female children the nipples are the same. We humans have a lot of male/female bits in common: arms, legs, liver, stomach, etc. The nipples are a case in point. They are there if the female hormone kicks in. If it doesn't, then like my empty sockets, nothing happens. If it does then there are the rudiments there to develop.

If you think about it, it would be more complicated for men to not have nipples.

indeed.  and a lovely bit of evidence for evolutionary theory it is.  No reason not to have them and so there they are.   and with the right hormones applied, any breasts can enlarge (handy for folks who need gender reassignment) and even produce milk http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Male_lactation

You assume wrong. The idiot you quoted got his answers multiple times. He just ignored them.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

..and I assume no scientist has cared much to blast out to the world how a hummingbird evolved.  Why not a worm?  I haven't heard how grubworms evolved - must be proof that science isn't real!! [1]
 1. Your assumption here about science coincides with your assumption of God - you are saying because of the lack of evidence for something, then it must be true..  This is an error in logical reasoning.  Instead, you should be looking at evidence that supports a claim, instead of a claim that has no supporting evidence..  Wake up!

Jst, I've observed that you run to anyone who claims to be a theist and are sure that they have the right answers.  For someone who claims to be following what the JW's follow, you glom on to any other theist, Plain Jane, and now rockv12, who you ignorantly think makes a "good" claim, of course with no evidence.  That amuses me because these other "good" theists are quite sure that your basic understanding of the bible and your god is completely wrong and you are doomed.

This, and your claim that you believe what the JWs say but can't be bothered with actually joining them, makes me think that you have no real beliefs but only want to be accepted by *anyone* who even remotely reflects your views.  Rockv12 is indeed the "idiot" because he ignores what she's been shown which makes him a willfully ignorant liar.  Not exactly the paragon of virtue that Christianity tells people to be. 
EDIT: thanks for catching that, MM.
