Logic christian style; If I do not have a Doctorate degree in reproductive medicine and do not know everything about reproduction than god must be real. LMAO because the christian cult hates information and education of the masses as they are harder to fool and control

Hello I am Evolution- I started from nothing,for nothing was in existence (no form of matter existed absolutely nothing.)
But over billions of years some unknown material evolved ,and I with no body,no brain,no eyes ,no legs,no feet ,no heart,no life created everything.
But as hard as this is to believe, I am responsible for all forms of life now living on planet earth,and through out the universe.
Only the very wise can comprehend this. Behold all stars,moon,sun,mankind,animals ,insects,birds,fish, plants ,trees ,all done by one with no life ,no brain .MIRACLE? Yes that's me ,Behold EVOLUTION

Let us take this one step at a time;
1)For every body of evidence supporting evolution,I can provide you with a supporting body of evidence refuting evolution.
Jhonathan Sarpati Ph.D. 15 loopholes in the evolutionary theory of the origins of life
Early stage ofChemical evolution Theories byDuane Gish PhD
& Theories of Origin of Life By Charles Q. Choi PhD
17 evidences against evolution by Kenneth martin PhD
The scientific case against evolution by Henry D. Morris PhD
These and many other scientists,refute the theory of evolution.
2)I am interested in knowing how life was created ,the theory of evolution is unable to provide that answer.
They present theories based on suppositions,not facts, as to how life may have created. When putting their theories to the test,they have been unable to create even the simplest form of life,let alone being able to create the complex human bodies that we inhabit.
By their own admission,Evolutionists admit,that they have no factual evidence as to how life was created.
Since evolution does not provide an answer to my question,I need look elsewhwere for an answer.
That is where God comes in,and in Genesis I find an answer.
This answer suggests that a Supernatural"SPIRITUAL BEING"is the creator.
this supreme being says he is God,,But how can I prove God exists,
I can not,because as a human,I am unable to prove or comprehend that which is Spiritual or supernatural. The only one who can prove God's existence is God himself. And,in the Bible,he tells you
what you need to do,in order for him to reveal himself to you.
Here are some;
Deuteronomy 4:29
But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Jeremiah 29:12-14
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord,.
Proverbs 8:17
I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
When I put those statements to the test,their validity was confirmed,,,,(I have posted this before)
I sought God,through prayer,seeking answers to problems that I have faced in my life and for which I could not find a solution.
As a result of my prayers,requestind his help,those problems were resolved inways that I would have never imagined.
that is how God revealed himself to me,,,answered prayers
He did not talk to me,he did not appear to me and no,I did not hear voices in my head.
As the Apostle Paul stated;To the unbeliever,the existence of God is nonsense,because natural man cannot come to a knowledge of God.
The knowledge of God is spiritually discerned...
That is the basis for my faith...You don't have to believe it,that is your choice...contrary to the opinion of satans Priest,who accused me of being a con man, I have nothing to gain by trying to con anyone.....Iam merely sharing the reasons for my faith.
If,at some point in your life,you conclude that you need God's assistance,do not be afraid to put him to the test.
If you diligently seek him,you will find him
Opinion and possible conjecture does not equate to evidence.

No one (that I'm aware of) is arguing that the evidence supporting evolution is complete. But, the overwhelming majority of the scientific community is convinced that it is the best explanation based on the evidence.
I'm sure if you were able to travel back in time you'd find a handful of dissenting academic opinions about the earth being spherical instead of flat.

Why do you think a handful of dissenting opinions equates (and negates) the entire fossil record?

For all you grown ups,you are wasting your time trying to help these little kids understand God. Look at their names,Satanic Priest,Skeptical Spectacles, ChromiuMan-they are too young to comprehend anything but evolution. Evolution is wishful thinking. Like some super magic formula.
Though they claim that this "energy " is so great and has evolved itself into every living breathing creation,created the heavens and earth,they still have not found it.
Only fools think that something not able to speak,think or breath can accomplish more than they can.

I actually feel sorry for these 3 kids (probably learned all this rubbish from their parents .
But it is a truth ,mankind either believes in some God ,or something that CREATED all things.Evolution is just the most absurd!
At least God (Jesus Christ ) was here on earth,done great miracles ,and even raised from death. I prefer the Bible ,so God is my choice!

You are even funnier! Read the WHOLE story. It's not about FORCING anyone to learn the Bible, it's about allowing The Bible as an ELECTIVE Course in High School.
That's the really funny part about this whole thread--how many actually must not have comprehended the word "Elective".

Got some of 'em so shook up to read the word bible they started having immediate melt downs...as if we live in a nation of commie cafeteria ladies, handing a bowl of peas to each and every student daily, hoovering over them with wooden spoons, "forcing" them to "eat their peas daily" and like it.

NOT in these United States of the 21st century. Not for those that live in REALITY anyway.

GOD Bless America, may we always have DEMOCRACY and educational institutions with some choices of "ELECTIVES" because dark age Communism sucks!

I snipped repetitive drivel... No One does Not need chromosomes from the female and from the Male to create a new organism... Humans Do because we Evolved to reproduce that way over Billions of years, that variation of reproduction evolved before Humans were walking on 4 legs... Long before Humans moved onto land from the sea... But the Statement "So,one needs the chromosones from both,men and women,in order to create a new organism.That is a fact." That is Not Fact in All Organisms... Many Organisms retained the ability to reproduce without Male or Females.... Humans (actually all Vertebrates) Evolved billions of years ago to reproduce using genetic material from another of it's species... Some laid eggs, some gave live births .. Then along the way Mammals evolved to give live birth and maintain gender specific genetics... Some of our ancestor vertebrates retained the ability to be male or female dependent on populations and environment...
So to Make it Simple because I have No Doubt you didn't understand what I wrote ... The Statement "So,one needs the chromosomes from both,men and women,in order to create a new organism.That is a fact." Is Not True for all Organisms...

Dinosaurs turning into Robins but you question someone's faith, I guess you think Global Warming and Aliens are real to. Lol Seems to me you drunk the Kool Aid and want others to have a drink.
Miracles and unexplained really happen everyday. Faith Required..
All you hear is bits of stories told on the discovery channel before you switch the channel because you think is blasphemy.... We actually have these things called colleges and universities where you can actually go and learn the details, go into the field and dig the evidence, learn how the dozens of dating methods work, learn anatomy, compare skeletal structure and layout.... Yes a line of Donos evolved to be Robins... the Raptor line and if you look at a early embryo of a chick in the shell you will find it has a tail that stops forming before hatching and finger bones that grow to become wings... If you turn on one gene a chicken grows teeth.. All of which has been studied, tested and verified.. Evidence has been found all around the globe... Just because you choose to remain uneducated on the evidence is Your problem not mine, All I can do is explain it to you I cannot understand it for you......

"Grown up?" Unlike wishful thinking in an invisible man speaking the universe into existence, there is nothing magical, mystical or supernatural about the Theory of Evolution. You still believe in "As I lay me down to sleep" and closet monsters and that a 1600 year old book was divinely inspired by the ultimate metaphysical being, then speculate on MY upbringing and education?
You know why I picked the silly nickname "ChromiuMan?" Because unlike the utter void of superstition, chrome is reflective.
Grow up.
