    From 'Live Science':

    Americans would rather hear about evolution from scientists than from judges or celebrities, according to a new survey that finds a majority agree that evolution is at work among living things.

    A coalition of 17 organizations reacted today to the survey by calling on the scientific community to become more involved in promoting evolution and other aspects of science education.

    The coalition, including the National Academy of Sciences, the American Institute of Physics and the National Science Teachers Association, released this statement:

    "The introduction of 'non-science,' such as creationism and intelligent design, into science education will undermine the fundamentals of science education. Some of these fundamentals include using the scientific method, understanding how to reach scientific consensus, and distinguishing between
    scientific and nonscientific explanations of natural phenomena"....

    I believe Darwin got his ideas by studying the bible. He failed to acknowledge his sources.

    Living Rock was an Egyptian pop group whose best known number was " my heart belongs to mummy"

    Who agrees with Mr West ? Well, the writers of the OT for a start.

    No, the Sahara used to be lush. Rainfall was much higher then.

    Here:
    "But around 10,500 years ago, a sudden burst of monsoon rains over the vast desert transformed the region into habitable land."

    He did acknowledge God or a creator on several occasions. oh, excse me for pointing that out. Now i'm a preacher.

    I dont have time to disect every word or work associated with Darwin but he never did state that something, some force that can be associated in this realm was an impossibility. Not that i am aware of anyway, TBH it is not that important to me either.

    Early on, Darwin did have faith. Later, the experience of his daughter's death, and knowledge of evolution led him to give that up. Sometimes he still paid lip service to the idea as a nod to public opinion.

    I have heard that before but it is just assumption, unless you know more and are holding back.

    Is that to say the accepted age of the sphinx is completely wrong?
