The answers religion produces are highly questionable. I call them guesses, not answers. Guesses based upon what ancient man thought due to the severe lack of scientific answers. Ancient man had to produce answers to pacify his need to have some direction. Ancient man had little answers for the world around him, so his imagination took over.
This is why we see so many various and different religions and superstitions. They are as different as ones imagination can produce.
They are still being produced today, note Scientology.

Please specify any one of the “many flaws” that you attribute to science.
Also, please demonstrate the validity of your assertion that the Bible works far better than scientific explanations.

Protest understandable, because that'd just be wayy ignorant.

Where it came from?
I am not moving the goal posts,.
You are trying to convince me that there is no God
God has proven to ME,that HE is,in no uncertain terms.
My faith is not based on what you may or may not believe.
I you want to believe that The BB was an accident,or was bound to happen,or it was a coincident ,does not matter.
I know what I believe, why I believe and in whom I believe.
God and Jesus Christ.
My beliefs are not based on someone's opinion or theories based on a non foundation.
We have already talked about that
You ,Iagio,Cromium and the rest of the nonbelievers,spend more time talking about God than most Christians do.
Why are you all so concerned in what I may or may not believe?
I am concerned about how you demean science on a constant basis in order to justify your belief in god.
You also seem to think if science cannot explain all, then god must be the gap.
You confirm this with each post you make that concerns science. Then you have the nerve to claim that you do not demean science.

Your creationist ideas are blocking the education of our children. The propaganda you keep putting out confuses the kids. They get to a point where they think the flintstones is based upon a reality.

I use Kaspersky Security for our Macs and also the Windows version for that ubiquitous PC I keep to remain humble and remember that technology isn’t exactly perfect. I’ve used several antivirus programs through the years and strongly prefer Kaspersky. In my opinion, Symmantec and Norton are the worst, McAfee marginally OK, Intego better and Kaspersky clearly the best and easiest to use (just go with the default settings; it updates automatically several times daily).
Norton will try and eat your email while algorithmically convincing it's a POP server!

No problem. It's just that I take a lot of pride in being a master baiter.

Didn't want the one ultersound that was imposed upon me, it served no useful purpose at all that time, except to alleviate some headache and aggravation that yet more "science" prior itself had been causing, for no good reason, other than INcomplete, rather skewed "algorithmic theories" that were highly questionable.

It just caused me to have to try and wrap (for hypothetical example) a basketball in a golf ball sized wrapping for temporary transporting. Good thing I didn't listen to and shopping based on the same it lol.

You said earlier... "Never give up on the ones you love!"
You guys do great footwork, I wished the Body of Christ did more!
I have a KJV and a Book of Mormon Another TESTAMENT of Jesus Christ.

We claim to be the restoration of the gospel that Jesus Christ taught while on earth. Since the death of the Apostles the "falling away" from His church began, just as Jesus told us would happen. He also told us there would be a restitution of all things before His return. The only difference between the LDS church and mainstream Christianity is that we believe these prophesies have occurred. This falling away happened early on and is evident at the Council of Nicea where they decided on pivotal doctrine like what books to include and exclude from God's word, and even the nature of God, method of baptism, importance of priesthood, etc.
So if most non Catholics, and about 1/4 of Catholics believe the Catholic Church is not the true church of Jesus Christ, then neither are any Protestant churches, as the scriptures say you cannot grow good fruit from a dead tree.
The founders of some of the largest Protestant churches acknowledged this very topic and admitted that the true church did not exist any more. Roger Williams even said that unless angels and apostles came down from heaven to restore it, it would not be on the earth. The difference is, we believe this has taken place.

See this one?(now if true-sounds like an actually legite gripe going on there!)

Woman says she was fired for refusing Scientology
She claims she was forced to take religious courses that included screaming at ashtrays and staring at co-workers.

At Florida's Dynamic Medical Services, that's just part of the Scientology-based status quo, according to a complaint filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission earlier this month.

Rommy Sanchez, whom Dynamic is accused of firing after she stopped attending the Church of Scientology, completed enough company-mandated courses to be taken to the church by a fellow Dynamic employee. Those "courses" are where all the shoving, prolonged staring and ashtray screaming came in.

After completing those tasks, Sanchez was also required to connect herself to an electro-psycho-meter&#8203 ;, or "e-meter," and take a "purification course" that consisted of jogging on a treadmill and taking 20 pills she was told were "vitamins," according to the complaint. When she wanted to quit, the Dynamic employee who ran the courses "tried to convince her that the course was good for her, that it would change her mind and detox her."

The EEOC is seeking back pay for Sanchez and another employee who was fired for refusing to participate, as well as compensation for any workers who were subjected to Dynamic Medical's "hostile work environment."

Beatriz Biscardi, an attorney representing the employees, told The Huffington Post that the employees were clear that the courses were associated with Scientology. Dynamic issued a statement denying the EEOC's "baseless allegations." The Church of Scientology, meanwhile, has remained mum about the case.

The allegedly berated ashtray also remained silent.

Those Somerset doctors sound pretty brutal. They have no business abducting you for sonar experiments, but don’t let them scare you away if you need them to treat you for a serious medical condition.
