Again, you are talking about todays bacteria, aren't you? We are going in circles.

Unless you have concrete evidence that bacteria millions of years ago was different, we can safely/reasonably assume it was the same as it is today.

I'd like to see your mathematical calculation for all this, including an explanation of why you are using these figures.

The number of connections in the human brain is approximately 1,000,000,000,000,000. Evolution teaches that the evolution of animals most familiar to us occurred during the past 550 million years. If this is true, then from the commencement of this phase of evolution, the connections in the brain of a human would have to evolve at the rate of approximately 5000 fully organized and fully functional electrical connections every day from that day until now. This rate of evolution relates only to the connections of the nerve cells, not the nerve cells themselves. So, in addition to the connections evolving by chance into trillions of correct connections, the nerve cells would also have to evolve along side of them and at the same rate. And each of these nerve cells must accidently perform the minute function for which the connection was accidently "intended."

I think ultimateworf is referring to evolution of society, right? As to improve ourselves in the society and be better humans as more loving and less killing. Anyway, I just want to make a clear point about Evolution vs. Chrisitainity: Whether Evolution is a true theory or not, it doesn't go against Chrisitanity. I'm a christian and I believe that evolution is possible. God didn't say how he created the world but he just said that he created it. God didn't say how he created humans as biologically, but he did create it. For an example, when he says that it took 6 days to finish the creation of the universe, animals, and humans, it doesn't mean 7 days that is 7 * 24 hours is the time that it took him to create it, but he means 'for calling a day for doing something different or starting a new project' for it has nothing to do with time. For an example, it may take billions of hours and the day for finishing or creating humans is not over.

This is logical enough.

This I find strange. You think every individual connection had to mutate? Why? You just need a code (DNA...) for the connections.

Above that, many of these connections in the human brain are formed during your life, which mean that a) a baby, with its DNA, wouldn't have that many connections and b) a large part of these connections didn't 'mutate' into existence, since things that happen during your life don't become part of your DNA.

[I need a synonym :(.]

Do you really want to get me started on DNA? :D The problem for evolutionists with DNA is that the codes contained in the DNA molecule have no direct relationship whatever with the proteins that they are used to make. The "writing" in the DNA molecule is not a prototype for the proteins that are produced from it - it is a language, a digital code. It does not contain a "sample" of the protein that it produces; all it has are codes that are written with 24 specific letters formed by only four different kinds of molecules, codes that another portion of the same cell can understand. They communicate with a language. Where did the language come from? DNA is not simple thing.

The human brain is an extrapolation of the nucleus. That was my whole point. If those connections did not work then we would be selected out it's that simple.

No, it's not that simple, and that's not the point. The point is how! How did we get "selected in" (for lack of a better term :D).
