What does that have to do with evolution, you redirecting nutjob? I'm not going to entertain your strawman bullsh!t, stick to the topic at hand.
Evolution is as much demonstrable fact as gravity. There is NO argument. Does that mean that we don't have observed gravitational anomalies that take further research to explain? No. Does that mean that we don't have small portions of evolution that are unknown to us and may take further research to explain? No.
Evolution is like a 5000 piece puzzle with 2-3 pieces missing. Intelligent design is like taking the same 5000 piece puzzle, tossing all of the pieces in the trash, and throwing the Bible down in their place while saying "Yep, solved that one!". You're throwing out everything that's been observed, tested, and makes sense while inserting something that is baseless, untestable, and unnecessary.
Nice summary. I wish fundies could grasp logic enough to pinpoint their own logical fallacies. It seems that every time they go off on evolution they go straight to the creation of the universe, jumping disciplines and billions of years of time because they obviously do not know a damn thing about the topic.

Change in allele frequency this, atheist scum: stuff looks complicated to my brain so God did it! What, you can't prove me wrong? I win, sucker!

Or something like that.

this is correct, however, neither is killing a convicted murderer considered murder. Murder is taking life illegally. Abortion is not murder either.

Absolutely... As long as folks admit that Abortion is Homicide and those that Commit Homicide should be Judged as to the if it is Justified by the courts on an individual basis just as with Self Defense and killing of a convicted murderer.. We do not just allow the person that kills in self defense to walk away without question... The facts of the individual act are presented to the prosecutors office to determine if the claim of self defense is justified... If there is not evidence such a homicide was Not Justified the person claiming self defense faces prosecution...
I am opposed to the death penalty because of the possibility of one innocent person at some point is put to death...
But I have no problem with putting a bullet in the head of a person breaking into my house, or in defense of another human life..
It's a matter of Justification, and personal inconvenience or in the case of abortion doctors, Profit... Is to me Unjustified....

Main way of Spreading Homosexuality...

Natural, and Normal!

Kaitlyn Hunt, the 18-year-old Florida cheerleader facing felony charges for a sexual relationship she had with a younger girl, has refused to take a plea deal in the case, her lawyers said Friday.
Hunt now must go to court to face two charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a minor. If convicted, shefaces up to 15 years in prison and would haveto register as a sex offender.
Under the deal offered by a Florida state attorney, Hunt would have to submit to house arrest for two years. She also would be labeled as a convicted felon and be required to attend sex offender counseling.
"This is a situation of two teenagers who happen to be of the same sex involved in a relationship," according to a statement released by Hunt's attorneys, Julia Graves and Joseph Graves. "If this case involved a boy and girl, there would be no media attention to this case."
The statement went on to say that if Hunt's relationship had occurred "108 days earlier when she was 17, we wouldn’t even be here."
But the attorney representing the minor, who is now 15, said the case is strictly about the law.
"This is a violation of the law that's based upon an adult having sexual relations with a minor," Charles Sullivan told TODAY earlier this week. "Gender, sexual orientation of the parties has absolutely nothing to do with the prosecution."
WRONG IS WRONG!

Just two weeks after New Zealand legalized homosexual "marriage," the government's Human Rights Tribunal is prosecuting an Anglican Bishop for "discriminating" against a homosexual who desires to become a priest.

These government prosecutions against churches, businesses and schools are a perfect example of what is to follow when a country legalizes same-sex "marriage."
.
Carla Hale, a homosexual P.E. teacher at a private Catholic school in Ohio was recently fired for what she claims is “discrimination.”

After she and her partner were featured in a local paper, a concerned parent contacted the private school.

And because school employees agree to adhere to the tenets of the Catholic Diocese, the school exercised their right to let Ms. Hale go.

Now the Homosexual Lobby has mobilized thousands of their radical activists to attack this school.

Hale’s attorney is filing a lawsuit alleging the firing violates the city's local version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights.

Notice... "Special Rights" NOT EQUAL Rights!
.
Queer agenda!
Parents of children attending a Red Hook, New York, middle school are outraged after a recent anti-bullying presentation at Linden Avenue Middle School.
The workshop for 13 and 14-year-old girls focused on homosexuality and gender identity. They were also taught words such as "pansexual" and "genderqueer."
Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.
"She told me,'Mom we all get teased and picked on enough. Now I'm going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,'" parent, Mandy Coon, told reporters.
Coon says parents were given no warning about the presentation and there was no opportunity to opt-out. Both the school principal and the district superintendent are defending the workshops and advising they will schedule more.

Wrong is Wrong!

That's due to the fact that you're one of the few on your side of the fence (at least in this forum) who is capable of arguing your position in a civil and respectful manner. I may disagree with just about every view you hold, but I respect the fact that you defend your position without resorting to the ridiculous shenanigans that some on here gleefully display.

Explain what cause and effect you are referring to.

Explain how Entropy points to ID.(here's a hint: it doesn't)

Explain what dependency you are referring to.

Give an example of Irreducible Complexity that hasn't been proven false.(here's a hint: there aren't any).

Explain how ERVs point (conclusively, not speculatively) to ID.

Explain how the DNA decay rate study you are referring to discredits evolution.

And finally, my favorite, explain how missing pieces of the fossil record serve as scientific evidence for ID.

What gays want is to be treated like anyone else. What you want is for them to sit down, shut up, and not be gay.

See the conflict?

I bet you even believe it is a choice, right? That gay men woke up one morning and said hmmmm....I think I'll go be gay today.
I don't care who's gay... I say live and let live... Most of us are around gay people all the time and they are getting all their rights now... However I for one refuse to cower and pretend that I think it's ok... I don't... It's disgusting... But if that's what they wish to do then great..

When you speak of anthropolicial origin of religion, it certainly has to do with Atheism. Simple search and this comes up:
"Modern anthropology assumes that religion is in complete continuity with magical thinking,[1] that it is a cultural product,[4] and that is a phenomenon of psychological projection. The complete continuity between magic and religion has been a postulate of modern anthropology at least since early 1930s.[1][5] The perspective of modern anthropology towards religion is the projection idea, a methodological approach which assumes that every religion is created by the human community that worships it, that "creative activity ascribed to God is projected from man."
This certainly describes how atheists feel about religion.
Act like ya got some smarts. The chariot was not invented before the wheel. The Bible alleges that humans were created fully formed and with all the skills of communication in an eyeblink. Anthropology does not assume magical origins of civilization.

Good grief man!! How about I just start walking you through your ABC's while I'm at it.... If you're going to debate a subject at least know something about it... And thus the problem with ToE: So many people just assume what they hear is true and never check it out themselves then turn and call others ignorant. This point is proven here as clearly you know nothing about even the basics of the argument... I urge you to dive in and do the research and see for yourself...
How is it so many can say that J.F.K and 911 were conspiracy theories yet just take the word of any Jake-legged grant seeking professor?

Hey asshat, when I started dating my wife she was about to turn 16 and I was about to turn 19.

You got something to say about that? If I was gay would it be any different?

You bigots absolutely kill me. And then have the nerve to talk about morals.

Wow. You don't care who's gay, but you think it is wrong and disgusting.

And no they don't have the same rights. For one thing, they can't marry the one they love. You can. I can. They cannot. Does that sound like they have the same rights?

Seems like you are wrong about this.

Also, who ever said the anus was used for reproduction? Do you engage in sex *only* for reproduction? If not, you are being a hypocrite in making that argument.

I think you are in way over your head here. It could be true what the other poster said about where you head goes...

You just evaded every single question on the topic and then accused the other guy of not knowing anything?
