Even the anti-evolution folks have given up arguing about evolution among *bacteria*.

They just claim there's no evidence for it among multi-cellular organisms.

Silly people.

Actually, they don't claim there's no evidence of evolution. They say there's only "microevolution", and that cases like that E. coli experiment are microevolution, just like observed cases in macroscopic organisms, like the case of the moths in Britain that became darker when industrial soot covered all the trees, and then lighter again when anti-pollution measures eliminated that soot. Or the lizards on an island in the Mediterrenean that, over a couple of decades, switched to a semi-herbivorous diet from a previously almost completely insectivorous one (and, most surprisingly, even acquired bacterial symbiotes!), complete with some anatomical changes, because "it's still a lizard".

Of course, they never really define what microevolution means. It seems to mean just "anything so blindingly obvious that even creationists can't deny it". At one time, the terms microevolution and macroevolution had a real scientific definition - microevolution was change within a species and macroevolution was changes that lead to speciation, but then they realized that macroevolution was nothing more than lots of microevolution, just a matter of degree, so now the terms are sometimes used informally to just mean "small-scale" vs "large-scale". But, creationists pretend that they are two distinct things.

For lots of fun, look at their concept of "baramin"

Oh yeah. and about health care reform...


The revenue neutrality bit is just a smokescreen. Just like all the "do you want bureaucrats making your health care decisions instead of doctors?" bit. Which is *really* stupid given that that's one of the major complaints about current health insurance providers, including HMOs.
