Ahhh...the sweet, narrow minded ignorance of religion comes out to bare its teeth. Unfortunately religion does not teach us the proper use of the word "too". Does your god forgive misspelling?


Damn it, I had it right the first time. I was tired Okay and in hurry.
Nothing gets bayou does it? Pretty childish and weak attack really.
But if you think that makes you better than me I can make a few more
mistakes for ya.



Nope...just a cheap shot by me at your expense..though you strangely avoided my real questions in that post and the one below it.

No, because your God is made up and not real. Physics and the properties of matter are nothing to do with fairy tales. They are observable, testable and those results are reproducible.


You're so belligerent and convinced you know it all you're not even worth talking TOO!

OP knows and does not have to rely on faith. That is a difference I like to like.

You only ask questions to prove how willfully ignorant you can be.
The only conversation you're interested in is an interrogation.

My opinions are based on things that can be observed and then reproduced consistently through empirical study.

For things that I do not know, I'm not afraid to say, "I don't know". Scientists are not afraid to say, "We don't know".

But for you, a religious adherent, YOU are the one in trouble. Your beliefs are absolute, and your claims "unrefutable" because your entire structure of belief is on the unbelievable. So anything to rock that singular belief is completely blanked and not investigated. You don't question the world around you. You're happy to live in ignorance and if that's the case, so be it.

If the only way to explain things you don't understand if to attribute them to some higher being, then what happens when those unknowns become known? Your "God" dwindles each time.

Or, you go the route of a 5 year old child and just claim "God did" until you're blue in the face.

I am just wondering where your literal belief limits are and where science or folklore have to take over.



I believe in a supreme being. Doesn't that answer your questions?
I don't believe our lives are worthless fleeting little misnomers that
are just a space between two nothings. I don't believe that all of what
I see going on here on this planet everyday, isn't proceeding to prove
a point. The Bible tells us this is true and I can see it everyday in the
world, in the nations and peoples, in history and current events,
in you and even in myself. I see what it says perfectly happening
every gawd damn day.

Oh but I'm just supposed to fall in line and get behind
evolution because it's the cool thing to do? Some half baked
trumped up and thrown together back yard bullsh!t nonsensical
recipe of happenstance from nothing and up popped everything?
Clearly suggesting that all the magic can happen with out the magician?

That's just wacky!



The radioactive potassium-argon dating method has been demonstrated to fail on 1949, 1954, and 1975 lava flows at Mt Ngauruhoe, New Zealand, in spite of the quality of the laboratory’s K–Ar analytical work. Argon gas, brought up from deep inside the earth within the molten rock, was already present in the lavas when they cooled. We know the true ages of the rocks because they were observed to form less than 50 years ago. Yet they yield ‘ages’ up to 3.5 million years which...

You will be greatly disappointed (by the forthcoming book); it will be grievously too hypothetical. It will very likely be of no other service than collecting some facts; though I myself think I see my way approximately on the origin of the species. But, alas, how frequent, how almost universal it is in an author to persuade himself of the truth of his own dogmas.’...
AUTHOR: Charles Darwin


The wonderful thing about science is, it doesn't care what anyone believes. In fact, it has no emotional disposition at all. Attachment to outcomes interferes with the integrity and professional manner in which science is supposed to operate. You aren't doing it to prove yourself right, you do it to find out if you are wrong. Too bad you aren't interested in that answer.

on the unbelievable.


We're approaching eight billion human beings, stuck out in the middle
of a vast vacuum expanse spread out to the kind of infinities your
pubescent little mind couldn't possibly comprehend. We are quite
likely the only ones like us in existence. We're stuck with each other
on this tiny blue ball that hangs in perfection in so many ways you
can never believe you know them all let alone count them.

And you want me to believe there is something that is unbelievable?
The only thing I can see that's even close to unbelievable is the
audacity of you suggesting such a thing. And that we just magically
burst forth out of nowhere to be the ultimate challenge of intelligence
for what cosmically will amount to two seconds. Ha ha it's funny as hell
because you're trying to sell me as the one being absurd here, when
it's really you and your whole tribe of gargantuan thinkers. Well
I'm sorry but I'm not impressed.

You don't understand evolution, not because it makes no sense, but because you choose not to. You are proud of your self-inflicted ignorance and none of us can do a damn thing about it.

So what exactly did you expect to get out if posting this thread, if all we are supposed to do is marvel at your courage and resilience? Or is that not the point? I admit to being a little confused because as I see it, you are daring people to do the impossible (change your mind) and laughing when they inevitably take a swing and miss (because no one can change your mind but you).

More to the point, I don't see any Christian spirit here at all. I see pettiness and vanity. You should know so much better randy.

Well isn't that sweet? Knowledge of God is not a petty thing.
Why did I write this thread? It's not that God needs me to come
to the rescue in his defence. And Christ has already come in
our defence. To be honest I love to engage and beat back the
dark. I love seeing it defeated in my Kings name. So it may look
like it's about me. But it's really about our Father.



You don't even have any good reasons for denying him.
That's unbelievably cruel. But then so is experimenting on
humans and little animals.

How come atheist are always the first to point out a lack of Christian spirit?

Is there a way science can explain that?

If you haters figure that one out then tell me how come science leeds to a lack of faith even though science is based of faith.

Do they issue binders in darwins reeducation centers?

What are your reasons for denying Hinduism's God(s)? It was around long before Christianity. Are they incorrect?

My friend, you got wrong song...

We all should be thankful...



For conclusion, we all should agree that yes, you don't get evolution, you will never get it with that kind of mindset.

Once you stop thinking of evolution as a fish turning into a bird, you will understand and grasp it infinitely better.

Evolution is readily observable throughout nature. Throughout life. Flightless birds with the remains of wings, land animals with the last remnants of gills, the human appendix and wisdom teeth. These are not propaganda, they are demonstrable reality.

The above is not to imply there is no God, but to simply state that evolution is an observable reality. The existence or non existence of God is an individual issue, and everyone must make that determination on their own. I certainly will never call out someone for a belief in God, whatever that means to that specific person.

Well that isn't very Christian of you Randy. You're supposed to be accepting of others flaws in your God's eyes. I don't believe in your god so I don't have to.

Maybe you need to tithe more in order to be better in your gods eyes so he will bestow acceptance and tolerance on you. Or maybe pray about it....your god answers prayers right? I expect a bit more decorum from such a fine Christian as yourself. Unless you repent and make known your evil ways, I will assume there really is no god because surely he would not let this happen.

See, no Christian spirit happening here. you started this thread for an opportunity to one-up the forum. jesus would be severely disappointed if he was any kind of wise at all.

you are only embarrassing yourself. dont believe me, try actually reading some responses. you might learn a few things.
