It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution debate

Full story: Asheville Citizen-Times

I would like to respond to the letter 'Recent letter offered no examples of Darwinian disingenuousness,' . He responds to an article with, 'He says evolution is 'so riddled with holes,' yet fails to provide a ...

From Webster's Online,
Omnipotent:
1: often capitalized : almighty
2: having virtually unlimited authority or influence
So it means he cannot be overpowered. Nothing is beyond his ability to accomplish.
So, do you subscribe to the "no logical contradictions/paradoxes" definition of omnipotence? IE, can he create a being so strong that God can't beat him in arm wrestling?

He's defined by a demonstrated reliable source independent of me and my imagination.

Probably a more accurate description of Almighty is able to accomplish anything which can conceivably be accomplished.

Yeah, but dinos and reptiles are pretty bland in the animal kingdom since they still exist. I love the really strange things that we don't see all the time, and their methods of hunting are fascinating. I wonder if such creatures could be tamed the way we tame modern animals, or if they could be taught to communicate.

Yet Muslims have explanations for this.

Still, the Koran has a much better track record than the bible.

The Koran has (by some estimates) only 50,000 errors as compared to about 78,000 for the bible (if you count textual variants as errors the number balloons to over 200,000).

do rabbits chew cud?

Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
That was not the mistake. It represents 180 degrees, exactly. 1/2 pi is 90 degrees. Radians are pi^2, which is 360 degrees. I forgot to double pi when I said 360 degrees, that was my error, and thus failed to double the number of degrees off discarding the majority of the number was, which would be about 16.22 degrees. A degree is a portion of that ratio. You need to take basic geometry, seriously dude, this is very basic geometry. I'm dealing with quaternions/eulers, ray reflection calculations, phong, and a slew of other highly advanced concepts and here you can't even understand that a degree is a portion of the ratio of a circle's circumference to it's diameter. Get back to elementary school, or tell your special ed teacher you need to retake basic geometry.

Slight correction, it's 68,000 errors in the bible. ;) Last I heard anyway.

Actually, they are trying to. Which would have been the better scenario:

1. The Jewish people heard the Nazis discussing matters that were a risk to their lives, so they went and informed everyone what they had heard. Adolf mentions that he is Nazi, and the German people banish the party from their political system before the holocaust could begin.

or

2. What really happened.

In your statement "Radians are pi^2, which is 360 degrees", what operation is represented by the "^" symbol? Normally it is used to represent exponentiation.

The road to either number of Bible errors begins with the first one which withstands scrutiny, none of which you have posted as yet.

Wow, you finally caught an error! This time the correct one.

You are correct, it should have been * not ^. Okay, now you're using your head for more than a hat-rack, please, keep this up.

The first one? I prefer to skip ahead to my favorite, a talking snake. It's funny at least.

Way to blame the victim. You win the heartless jackass award for the day.
Oh and hitler was already in power before he started persecution of the Jews. Also hitler was voted into office by the people.
