Since I mentioned Utah, I thought this was interesting. Brigham wanted to name the state Deseret, but the President of the US at that time was not very fond of Mormons, so he said it will be called Utah, after the Ute indians. It could be argued that this fulfilled a prophesy by Isaiah:
Chapter 2, verse 2
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
In Ute, the word utah means top of the mountains. Just thought that was interesting.
Interesting? Eh. More like pattern hunting. This is why I detest magical thinking.

I'll reply to you later on the witnesses thing. I think you are wrong about their validity. If I remember correctly, none of them literally saw anything. Weren't they speaking of spiritual "sight"? As in God told them?

When God tells you something it is not exactly compelling evidence. Unless you also think Allah and Buddha and Indra and Odin told people valid things.

<quoted text>Maybe, just maybe had you paid attention in school, or actually read Darwin's Origin of the species, you would know it does not say we came from apes. This was a myth made up by the Church of England, and is still believed to this day by ignorant people who would rather believe a liar than read something for themselves.
And here's something MORE for people to read, rather than just settle just one source of opinion-because there are MANY, far BETTER, unbiased researched articles to read from.

It was difficult finding any fossils that appeared to be \'ape-men\' to fill in the Evolution ape man chart during the first few decades of the theory. By the year 1925 there had been two or three of these. The Piltdown man was being used as an example of human evolution (which was later exposed as a hoax) in addition to Java Man (which was later shown to be the combination of two bones from different species).

The Evolution Ape Man Chart And The Nebraska Man
Creationism Vs Evolution Any Scientific Evolution Evidence

Evolutionists desired to put evolution into the schools but were finding it very difficult. They decided to put on a ‘circus' type event in order to get attention to the theory. This event was called the ‘Scopes Trial' but was eventually referred to as The Monkey Trial.

It was more of a spectacle than a real trial. With all of the national attention that this event received, it was important that the evolutionists "made a splash". They certainly did that with a new \'ape-man\' dubbed The Nebraska Man.

This \'ape-man\' was drawn with artistic license from one single tooth. The creationists felt like this was \'foul play\' because they were presented with this creature without having any chance for research.

The evolutionists alleged that the anti-evolutionists simply could not accept any new evidence that contradicted their ideas.

After the ‘smoke had cleared', the Darwinists walked away with an outright victory (technically they lost the ‘trial' but won the national approval by many). The huge amount of publicity had worked. This so called \'ape-man\' was very instrumental in putting Darwinism on the map and into the schools.

Many Christians have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned and suffered, because of Muslims and atheists and then you guys just laugh and enjoy it when it's on the news. Respect people for their beliefs and that's just all I can say to you Hypocrites

So when a group of christians beat a homeless man to death they where helping him?
Or when a group of christians burnt a woman alive (two weeks ago) they where helping her? I know, I know, when a group of christians blew up a womans clinic, murdering the Doctors, employees, and clients inside they where "helping" them.

(0% of ALL sex offenders are baptist, the other 10% are catholic.
And just because YOU live with your mommy and feel bad about lusting after the neighbors young daughter does not mean you are not a sex offender, you just have not been arrested yet.

Sure, don't come up with that crap, we wouldn't harm a fly, stop trying to say we're wrong by coming up with lies.

Please READ the Constitution.
Pay close attention when you get to the very last paragraph-just before the many signatures of the Founding Fathers.
Ever read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists?
...
You mean the letter that Jefferson wrote to the Danbury baptists explaining the establishment clause of the first amendment?
The letter where he coined the phrase "separation of church and state?"
The letter that pretty much sums up why our country was clearly not founded on any religious ideas?
Yeah, I've read it. It's one of my favorite things written by Jefferson.

As aptly as the Constitutional was written, don't you think that if they (the Founding Fathers) intended to write "in the year of our potus 17 hundred blablahblah"...they would've?
But NO, that is NOT what they wrote-they wrote and signed names to-
..."done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independance of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,....."
Geez, pull your fingers out yer ears and from your nose will ya please.
Let me get this straight. You think that because they didn't invent a whole new calendar system they were endorsing god? I mean, you do know that A.D. as in "the year is 2013 A.D." is short for Anno Domini and translates to "in the year of our lord" don't you?

Spoken like the typical anti-evolutionist who has no real idea what he's railing against.
