    Is this the logic of the argument?

    Premise 1. Genetic similarities prove that species share a common ancestor.

    Premise 2. Two species share genetic similarities.

    Therefore,

    Conclusion 3. these species share a common ancestor.

    If so, how do genetic similarities prove common ancestry?

    Elea:.

    Genetic similarities don't prove anything, on their own.!

    There is NO argument here...

    You can dress it up how ever you like. It makes zero difference.

    What is REAL and Observable. (To us in this day and age).

    Like 'Dawkins' says....There can only be ONE reason for life..!

    You ask.."If so, how do genetic similarities prove common ancestry?

    Watch the film?....

    I saw the video. I heard your rhetoric. The most significant words were: "Compare the genes of any pair of animals you like...pair of animals...pair of plants...and then plot out the resemblances, and they fall on a perfect hierarchy, a perfect family tree..."

    Now I want logic and evidence.

    You wan't Logic and Evidence...?

    Ok..

    Logic is Logic...We get to the answer the fastest and most economical way.

    Logic works 99.99 percent of the time...Yes?

    Evidence?..Chop a Tree down and study it's DNA?..

    Look at a Tiger's DNA..

    What more 'Evidence' is there?...

    How do you get from genetic similarities to common descent?

    Man came from Monkey and went into SPACE.!

    There is NO Common Descent. (No need for them.)

    What we have are facts.;)
