7)If science hasn't given us a good answer about the start of life yet that does not mean it can't.
There is simply no reason at all to assume that we can't figure that mystery out. It took a very long time to figure out evolution, germ theory, relativity, plate tectonics, and how to make vaccines to save millions. These ideas about origins are hard nuts to crack. It's gonna take a lot of time to do it.

What Science is not able to explain is the process that made us into living intelligent beings,created out of unintelligent unliving matter.
It is from that foundation,on not knowing the answers to these questions,that they proceed to explain to us ,how this process might have taken place.
Therefore,when your foundation is based on stating that you do not have the answer to these questions,but may possibly have them some day,invalidates any conclusions you may arrive at.
If the foundation is built on sand,the house will come down.

8)The fact that you take this as some kind of admission of falsehood or deception shows me that you do not know anything about science. At all.

I never took this to mean any kind of admission of falsehood or deception on anyone's part.
Those are YOUR WORDS.
What I stated is my opinion as to why I find Science and Evolutions non answers to be absurd

9)Also, I never said I could interpret scripture. I said I enjoy reading about it and I understand the way the ancient interpreters worked. Stop changing my words to suit what you would like me to say.

If you understand how ancient interpreters worked,and agree with their views,then,in my view,not only were they wrong .but so are you.
I have seen many misinterpretations posted right here
When I have taken the time to correct them,no one has been able to contradict me,other than,I don't believe the Bible...
Their hypocricy is made plain,when,by quoting Scriptures out of context,they believe that Scripture is accurate based on their interpretation.
So,they BELIEVE the Bible,when it is convenient..

<quoted text>If you dispute something I say, then demonstrate how it is wrong. Just calling people names just makes your religion look like a philosophy of hate.
The only thing I mentioned was concerning YaA's reference about the Catholic church/mass and the "Holy Ghost" in reference to a "still small voice",

You just did the same thing however , hating on others beliefs, and trying to justify it because others beliefs might )or might not) tie to "religion".

Personally, I think (people) just having a "conscience" does NOT constitute as being a "religion".

con·science
[kon-shuhns] Show IPA
noun
1.
the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one's conduct or motives, impelling one toward right action: to follow the dictates of conscience.
2.
the complex of ethical and moral principles that controls or inhibits the actions or thoughts of an individual.
3.
an inhibiting sense of what is prudent: I'd eat another piece of pie but my conscience would bother me.

What did I take out of context? Your lame attempt at sarcasm? Which as a side note is pretty sad, since sarcasm is usually fairly easy for most people to score points with. But you, well you can't even do that right.
I'm starting to worry about you...
You better take lessons in reading comprehension
I wrote'ACCOTDING TO YOUR LOGIC"Meaning Kiddy Fodder,
in large letters,so you would understand.obviously not

My belief and faith in God are based on my testing his Instructions as to how he may be found
If anyone had deceived me about God's existence,it was God himself.
And how did God prove to me,He does not exist?
By answering my prayers and thereby proving that he does exist.
That being the case,ACCORDING TO YOUR LOGIC,God deceived me into believing he does not exist,by proving to me,that he does exist.
There is something seriously wrong with your logic

If you think what I stated was dumb,go tell it to KittyFodder,it was based on her logic.
By the way,Based on your inability to comprehend what you read,may be caused by the possibility that you are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other one

Lol, there is no god just ignorance. Love is a word for animal attraction. These things I claim, speak for your god not me.
there's a (big) difference between real "love" and lust.

One is based upon good, the other is just the animalisticness of the carnal.

On Love-

1 Corinthians 13:4
New American Standard Bible (©1995)
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant...
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

On Lust:
1 John 2:16
New American Standard Bible (©1995)
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

<quoted text>See my last post.
As for Joe Smith, a plausible explanation is, he made up the whole story for profit, and he is not really a prophet. Just as Ron H. made up some Scientology story for profit and is no prophet. Just as Mohammed made up a story for profit and is no prophet.

Can you see the trend? The evidence shows people can just make up stories and believers of the story feel they hear inaudible voices that confirm the story that they already believe.
Yeah I know you think I haven't thought of all this. I don't expect you to take my word for any of what I have said. I hope you take the time to find out for yourself someday.
So true

<quoted text>I would have been killed by Christians if I lived in the days of the inquisitions and crusades. Glad your team finally got the memo that killing infidels is not moral. Tell Deuteronomy.

I do not think it was Jesus that stopped the killing of infidels, I think it was secularism. Note when the killing of infidels by Christians slowed down? It was when the enlightenment came. It was when the governments started to follow secular rules instead of religious rules.

Also take note of how many Christians fail to turn the other cheek on a continuous basis. As if this is not something a Christian even strives for. Just look at "Yes and amen".

Note that the Muslims are anti-secularism. This is why they are still open to killing infidels. It is legal in their countries. Why? Because their countries follow the laws of their religions. All based upon blind faith.

Does your church turn the other cheek to homosexual marriage? Nope.
Good points. Can't disagree with some if it

God haters? I doubt it. Ignorance haters yes. I don't hate your god. I just don't think it's real.
It's funny to me that most of you science haters (to use your vernacular) easily dismiss the findings of the scientific community claiming ulterior motives...yet readily accept the BS that the Discovery Institute doles out without batting an eye.
Glad you said...
"I just don't think it's real"!
Because "IF" you knew He is real...
You would NOT dismiss what "Discovery Institute doles out without batting an eye"!
Seems... you cannot see the forest for the trees!

Of course I cannot prove you do not hear magical voices, and I am not trying to prove it. I am trying to show plausibility.
I am showing likelihoods.
Science often is not about proving something but more about showing likelihoods.
But I understand when someone is so demeaning of science, they often do not even understand this basic concept of science.
