Let us clarify something. It matters not to you.
To those of us who have tested God's teachings and found them to be true , it makes all the difference in the world.
That is a fact that neither you or any devout Atheist is unable to grasp.
In the meanwhile , when they finally create a Nobel prize for Science Fiction , nonsense and gibberish you can all stand in line and explain to the Nobel committee why your nonsense and gibberish is more deserving than the other guy's.
Competition will be tough.
Witchetty is already one up on every one.
She claims her body and brain were formed in the stars.
Her evidence to support her claim is that she is full of gas and her mind exploded to form a super stupid nova.

Albert Schweitzer
Therodore Roosevelt
Nelson Mnadela
Martin Luther King
Dag Hammarksjold

...sometime during our spawning from the earth, we grew bigger brains with a conscience and self awareness....if the human species would have NOT developed intelligence, we would have never survived...it's survival of the fittest.
...and who says that we are as smart as we think we are? I mean, I watch ants march in a single file line building empires for their species...that takes communication and collaboration, right? Are they intelligent?
Religion likes to convince ourselves that we are special...that God made this place for us...BECAUSE WERE SOOOooooOOOOOoooo special!
....if you do some reading, you'll learn that the main religions are from the Middle east, the Jewish people are the chosen ones of Christ...LOL...it's amazingly ironic how the people who made this faith are the chosen people....LOL
...evolution is a FACT...you can't debate that, you will lose and in the process make yourself look uneducated.
What you have written sounds very good.
Unfortunately you did not take the time to explain how or what caused these events to materialize.

For example;
"sometime during our spawning from the earth",

"we grew bigger brains with a conscience and selfawareness".
...if the human species would have NOT developed intelligence, we would have never survived...it's survival of the fittest"

I also fail to see how the behaviour of ants has anything to do with human intelligence.
Are you saying that ants are as intelligent as humans?

It is true that the Jews claim to be the chosen people.
It is also true that the Authors of the Bible , being Jewish ,do not hesitate to condem the behaviour of their countrymen.
They do not fail to admit how their people failed to obey the commandments and statutes as specified in The Old Testament.
Their failures are unequivocally listed. The blame for those failures is placed exactly where it belongs.
It is part of their recorded history , which they did not attempt to minimize ,assign blame to others or deny.

I have to agree with you. You can put much stake in the Nobel.

That is a rather impressive list of recepients and their accomplishments made them worthy of such an honor

Mandela led bands of machete wielding gangs as they ran through villages mass murdering , There was Good reason for him to spent time in Prison.... And the others can arguably said to have done little to deserve such a prize on Merit, more on Political Position...

You found them to be true? So does many who believe in Bigfoot, yet neither have evidence. It is but opinion, nothing more.

Just because they admit some faults it does not mean their claim of being the chosen people any less hubris. Claiming to be chosen is one of their flaws. They fail to acknowledge this giant failure.

How do you test what a supposedly omniscient being tells you? What measure do you use?

Well, whatever your reference of measurement may be, let's hope that it's more accurate than the ratio of 3:1 that the god of the Bible gives for Pi.

Ants have a memory of less than twenty seconds. But their instinctive behavior patterns that evolved makes for what looks to be a great intelligence. They are one if the most successful species that have lived on earth.

If evolution is true ,how did we come by our intelligence?
Who holds the patent for the mannerf that all life is designed?
Is that all by accident?
A cell is more complicated than anything created or invented by mankind.
That which we have created is a result of intelligent beings devoting time and intellect to design.It did not magically appear from nothing.
Great post!
You do know that they think life came from a rock...
stewing in a pond, or falling from space... LOL

If you believe in evolution you can tell your kids that their ancestors were Apes , that you came from nothing , your stay in this world means nothing and when you die , you have gone full circle , you are nothing.
You can further expound on that nonsense by claiming that the unintelligent and nonliving accident that caused human existence
is more intelligent than human intelligence.
You can accentuate that nonsense further by making the absurd claim that life does not need an intelligent creator.
On the other hand , you nullify that statement by using your intellect by attempting to create life.
In effect , you are using your intellect to try and create that which you claim does not need intelligence in order to be created.
There is something wrong with that logic as it is solely supported by nonsense.
At some point in time ,life came into being.
To say that life evolved spontaneously from nonliving, nonintelligent matter is at the very least, absurd and impossible.
There is no evidenced to support that nonsense.
Another fine post!
But you might as well be trying to tell a Liberal, just how incredibly bad Obamacare is for America!

Your claims of expelling demons have other believers in God laughing at your claims as well. You're showing a goat herder mentality very disturbing.
I cannot help your stupidity...
Just trying to make you aware of it!
Making statements like;
"Vlad the impaler was a Christian"... was stupid in it's purest form!

To top that, there's over 150-200 billion galaxies. Water = life as we know it, not a God. Science is open to changes mind you, so these are the findings as of today.
...you must understand that religion stops you from questioning our origin by simply saying, "God did it!" ...well, it's not that simple...no one said that nothing came from nothing, and according to science it's quite the opposite....a lot occurred during the creation of our sun that gave us the earth as a byproduct as a host for life.
...if your as close minded as most religious types you'll ignore the diversity of every species on earth that proves evolution is a FACT....you'll continue to tell people of how great your imaginary friend is, and how much better he is over the other's imaginary friend....it's a never ending cycle...people with good sense have denied religion since the trial of the inventor of the telescope (Galileo Galilei) from the day he proved that the Earth was NOT the center of the universe!...needless to say, the church gave him an option to plead guilty to destroying the teaching of God that the earth was flat...if they would've taken him to trial they would've killed him for telling FACTS!...but, he pled guilty for a life sentence of house arrest (for telling the truth with evidence to support it)....are you so in denial of scientific facts that you can't realize that science has debunked religious claims because there is no solid evidence of any faith...because the word faith be definition means HAVING NO PROOF.
There is NO proof of changing of Kinds!
A dog, is, and always will be a dog, same for a cat, bird, or Human!
Kinds proves the "theory" of Evilution faulty!
Gravity is a physical law... evilution is conjecture initiated by people who dislike God... followers of satan!
