Therefore, SOME of us will stand on our *original* appreciation that of the wisdom that can be found within the PERSONAL favorite quote of-

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." - Albert Einstein

*NO additional quotes required* as MANY can READ, Speak and THINK as well, for THEMSELVES.

Of course the truth being,

"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly."

You should have told us Don from Cambridge, Nebraska said it.
It was Ned from Cambridge, Nebraska that who said, "there is no god".
They be some truthful people in Nebraska for sure.
Everyone can take as fact what Don and Ned say, don't you agree?

<quoted text>There is a difference between fact and theory. Evolution is a fact, the Theory of Evolution is a theory that explains the fact of evolution.

It is a fact that things fall to the ground when dropped. It is a fact that light takes about 8 minutes to get to Earth from the Sun. It is a fact that there is a tiny time delay between satellites and GPS devices. Newtonian physics is a theory that explains a lot of that, and Relativity is an even better theory that explains much more of it.

One day we might get a theory of evolution that is better than what we have today, just like we did with physics. But until that day comes we teach what we know.

What is the alternative? Teach kids nothing at all? Teach them that god did it? Fill their heads with all manner of contradictory, unsupported ideas and then expect them to know how to parse the good from the bad?
I'm ok with teaching that evolution occurs, while providing examples that have been proven. But apes to humans have not been proven yet, so it should be taught as a theory. Just as whether you are born gay or not has not been proven yet, it should be taught that it is a theory, and then present the evidence that leads some to believe it.

Humans share a common ancestor with apes.
NOT
Apes turning into humans.

Do all religies get their degrees in Stupid from the same school?

You keep saying you have plenty of evidence, yet you present none. Where is this evidence? If there is plenty then it should be a simple matter for you to present it.
Let's not beat around the burning bush.
There is no god.
No god means no evidence.
No religie can produce what does not exist.

Because it's a flawed and incomplete , and now rather antiquated theory ONLY as well.

With some of the most outdated, ignorant, elementary level "pictergraphs" to have ever been forced into textbooks anywhere.

Thank goodness, real Science that evolves as LOGIC presents reason and rational, and does NOT "stay" mired in dark age muddlesome muck.

Yes, and because you can show pictures, rock samples, and other verifiable evidence the existence of the Grand Canyon is not questionable. You have no evidence for your god, thus your claim is dismissed as fairy tales.
Kittenfodder
I would not say that.
Many Atheists do not dismiss that claim as a fairy tale
I am surprised you did not know that
Some observations are in order and are worth repeating.

1)Although they claim not to believe in God,Atheists spend an inordinate part of their lifetims talking about God and seeking evidence for his existence.

2)Their unbelief has caused them to have a much higher rate of suicide than those who believe.

3)Studies show that 70% of children reared by Atheists
wiil become affiliated with a church as they reach adulthood

4) A study by Rice University shows that 25% of Atheists and their chidren attend church....

My opinion is that you should address your question to those Atheists,like yourself,who are unable to keep their mind from thinking about God.
Or,you should ask the 70% of children who were brainwashed by their parents into not believing in God and are now Believers.
Or,go to church and ask the attending Atheists and their children to explain their reasons for being there.

The same mental desire that keeps them always thinking about God is probably also responsible for their desire to attend church..

<quoted text>My statement was to someone who claimed god could do anything. If you are goofing to stick your nose in our debate, be prepared to defend the claims you side made on the topic. My question applies perfectly and you have failed to show otherwise.
You clearly just cannot admit to being wrong.
I don't believe God can do anything, so that isn't "my side". What would you have me defend? Someone else's beliefs? You're the one that's wrong in this car in thinking every Christian fits your stereotype.
