You have had that answered several times.... Matter converted from energy... Now if it makes you feel better to say God caused the conversion at the BB that's fine, unnecessary but if it makes life simpler for you.... Those that understand science tend to go with energy just converted some of it's energy into matter, happens every second without someone waving a magic wand... But there is no Creation... From the instant matter converted all we observe was set into motion and physical laws took over...
Tend to go,as you stated,is an opinion,not a fact.
Science has totally failed to explain how unliving matter was able to convert itself into living matter. That seems to be a fact.
Science is unable to show how unintelligent matter was able to evolve into intelligent matter,other than,some unexplainable event that may have taken place or billions of years ago

Here is an explanation given by
Professor Seth Grant, of the University of Edinburgh
The researchers suggest that a simple invertebrate animal living in the sea 500 million years ago experienced a 'genetic accident', which resulted in extra copies of these genes being made

"If the universe is non-intelligent, as in it does not contain any intelligence whatsoever, then how can the universe itself account for intelligent beings? If intelligence does not exist at some point, then it can never exist. Intelligence cannot come into being. If you say it can, the burden is on you to prove how. How can mindless matter possibly produce creatures with minds, with brains, with intelligence? No amount of time, natural selection, and chance can create intelligence out of nothing."

So it would seem that the foundation of your argument is not factual,is not based on any logical or probable deductions we can draw from it,other than,over a period of billions of years some how ,some way life was created from an unliving source and intelligence was created from an unintelligent source.
At least that is what I understand.....
Fossils,on which you place so much credibility,in no way shape or form,provide any evidence as to how life came into being or the origins of intelligence....
Therefore,if the foundation of your argument hinges on some probabilities that may or may not have occured,that were never observed,that can not be tested,how can any reasonable conclusions be drawn from that foundation

I don't believe it is the governments job or resposibility to teach my children about God
As a parent,I don't believe I should tell my children that God exists..
It is my responsibility to TEACH them about God,the reasons for my belief in God,my faith in God based on my personal experiences,not on the opinions or views of others
I also vehemently oppose the suggestion that the government has any justification in indoctrinating schoolchildren into ANY specific theologies,including Evolution.
So,if you teach one,you need teach the other or teach neither.
The religious are the only ones who regard the theory of evolution as a theology. Whether that is because it is viewed as a threat to Abrahamic Creationism, because it is rhetoric that is prevalent among certain religious circles and spokesmen or because some religious minded deign not to distinguish the difference between science and divinity has been debated numerous times in this thread and elsewhere. Common regard of it does not come anywhere close to matching any observance or definition of theology, religion or faith.

I did. You said I was wrong, so I want to hear what you think. That's all I've asked this whole time.
No goal posts, just tell me what you think since you think I'm wrong.

It's pretty obvious you have never watched small children at play.
A young child has no conscience... evidenced by "MY toy!," I"M hungry!,"
"I want!"
Consideration for others, sharing and empathy are TAUGHT.
What is taught is...
Learning to care!
What does a child do when caught doing something???
It happens even when you've never told it NOT to do that thing!
They/we know something is wrong before being told...
Just lil sinners needing redemption!

Why do YOU?
The reason you don't is simple. You are lazy.
It is easier to lie, cheat or steal, then beg for "forgiveness" than to actually to do the right thing in the first place.
Religion gives you a scapegoat. And, boy, do you use it.
Grow up and become a responsible adult.
It is worth the effort.

"What makes a Christian a Christian"

The ability to have faith that there are, burning bushes that talk, animals that have the gift of human language, property rights on women, no rights for gays, people who live in a whales stomach, no rights for non-believers, invisible critters that tempt and reward.

There's more of course but one word works.

Ignorance.

Yes, the child knows by the LOOK on the parent's face when they are NOT supposed to be doing something. Words may not even be necessary.
A parent's disapproval is obvious to the child.

To a child, playing in feces, putting the cat in the toliet or pointing a loaded gun at your face are all the same UNTIL THEY LEARN DIFFERENTLY.

According to you, you did lots of "wrong."
Too bad someone didn't raise you better.
Now you think you don't have any responsibility for what you've done.
Convenient religion much?

I've known some people who consider their many flaws to be virtues,yet when they see these so called virtues in others ,they are quick to identify them for what they really are,flaws.
Their behaviour may be attributed to vanity,arrogance,they may be conceited, they may be afflicted by a superiority complex, in believing that what applies to others does not apply to them.
In the process,they have the audacity to self proclaim themselves as being good.
I have no problem admitting to my many faults,as confession is good for the soul.
To deny them would be to deceive myself into thinking that I am that, which I am not.
You probably will not understand what I have posted,since in your self righteous state,you may not be able to discern it's meaning....
