Life was "created" by natural processes. You already know that is the answer. Why do you keep calling it a smokescreen when you propose that a supernatural metaphysical humanoid created not only homo sapiens (specifically Semitic homo sapiens), but the enormity of all time and space for the tribes to live in for a few thousand years? Seems to me the smoke in your screen is highly hallucinogenic and should be investigated by the DEA.
You are depriving a village of it's idiot

No I do not know that life was created by natural processes , that is another lame excuse that you have concocted.
These natural processes that you allude to , but fail to identify , What are they?
How were they able to create life,which they themselves do not posses , or consciousness or intelligence .
Let us not forget that Science has claimed that only life can create life...
Moreover , Why is it that Science , by leaving God out of the equation, claims to have no idea as to how life was created and you have managed to figure out it was created by natural means.....

Thank you for that very reasoned Scientific explanation.
You covered all the bases......with nonsense and manure.
I will not deny you the privilige of doubling your intellectual content . Go read a book with blank pages.
If you learn nothing from reading it , you'll still know twice as much than befor you read it
You make a strong case for those who believe that NOTHING created their intelligence , as Nothing from nothin gets nothing.
Man proclaiming mans thoughts and limited mans knowledge that they proclaim it above God, is that of what educated people adhere to but Godly people see through it to know the truth is with Gods love.

In trying to interpret the word of God without meaning in the Holy Spirit, it becomes lackluster and worldly. Its deceiving appeal exists only for a short period of time and then passes away. Like the world.

The devil coaxes people to invest in mans logic and trust the inclinations of his own mind and the devil in his twisting the truth in Gods word using these type of things as weapons to attack the truth when it's spoken. Gods thoughts are not our own.

But we who are of God know the truth and hold it dear never letting it go.

The only one perfect enough to be able to be in charge of everything in this world to know who and how and when and why is not just a man but the son of God. Jesus Christ The Lord!

The Lord is able to decree what is the acceptable work for each person at the appropriate time. Not to please men but God. He is able to distribute intelligence and wisdom too.

You all claim otherwise.
That is,assuming that your mind is capable of holding more nonsense.
See how I shorten your rantings that you repeat over and over. You have no proof except your faith. Remember that God cannot grow limbs on amputees that's my proof he does not exist.

You cannot refute that ever.

Of course you shortened what I wrote , Why wouldn't you?
I challenged all of you to present the basis for your belief that intelligent Design GOD , is not the creator of life.
You dare not take up that challenge, then , as is customary with Atheists , when they are caught in a trap of their own making and cannot get out , they throw up smokscreens ,of which, you are a prime example , amputees have nothing to do with yhe topic at hand
I have stated the reasons for my faith. Said reasons , none of you have been able to challenge , only insults and smokescreens have been provided.
I stand and defend my beliefs , you Atheists are unable to express the basis for creation because it is based on nonsense ,begging for time ,unable to explain or justify it , other than nonsensible answers.
The reason I keep pounding on the subject is because you won't leave it alone.
You have no credible defense for your opinions , causing you frustration and anger and can only resort to devious methods in an effort to disclaim your foolishness.
To me, this topic is ended.
Any more excuses and attempts to distract will be as futile as all your past attempts...And ,that is all you have to offer.
I do not need to waste my time with all your foolishness.

You have willingly enslaved yourself to a myth.
You have traded freedom, which you fear, for living on your knees and trying to live by the rules of a primitive, superstitious people.
You seem to need a "ruler" so that you can behave has a decent human being.

I don't. I am free to behave as my conscience dictates.
It works pretty well for me. I haven't murdered anyone, stolen things, cheated others or lied.

I would argue that you are the slave and I am the one who is free.

If there was more bible study in school, perhaps more would understand allowing boys to choose to identify as a girl and use their facilities in public school is foolish.

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:
Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
Controlled Mass Media
Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders.
Corporate Power is Protected
Labor Power is Suppressed

Fascism is therefore opposed to Socialism to which unity within the State (which amalgamates classes into a single economic and ethical reality) is unknown, and which sees in history nothing but the class struggle. Fascism is likewise opposed to trade unionism as a class weapon....
Sound like tea party republicans.
Opposed to trade unions and Socialism aka medicare,social security,welfare and obamacare.

Again you throw up smokescreens and lame excuses inorder to avoid the issue in question....Which is;
Was Life and the Universe creates by ,
1) Nothing by
2) some nonintelligent,nonliving nonconscious force or
3) or by intelligent design
I stated my case for Intelligent Design
I asked all of you to present your case and for you to try and invalidate my reasons for believing as I do.
So far , none of you have stated your case and unable to refute what I posted,have had to resort to lame excuses and smokescreens.
You just flung a few stinkbombs in order to draw attention away from your inability to address the issue at hand.
Bringing up a nonissue such as my dog , has nothing at all whatsoever with the issue in question.
You attempt to cloud the issue further by alluding to some irrelevant statement about introducing religious indictrination into public sghools Blah blah blah.....That is another of your futile efforts in order to change the topic .
The truth is that, you are all unable to submit an alternative whereby you could justify and defend how it may be possible for natural causes to create intelligent ,living conscios beings ... not to mention the universe
I claim that life was created by intelligent design and I give my reasons for my beliefs.
You all, not only are totally incapable of disputing my reasons, but are also uncapable of submitting an alternative which you could defend.
Neither excuses ,smokescreens or insults ,not by you ,Dukette or
Khatru are capable of challenging my reasons....And that is because you do not challenge what I have written , you merely insult and avoid having to deal with it.
If none of you could deal with it , then you should not have enmeshed yourselves into the conversation
You don't give any reasons for your beliefs - they are just beliefs based on your feelings, not on any real world evidence. You don't present any tangible challenges to retort, and those few you have were interpretive at best, which you opined about with extreme bias. That was pointed out. All you have are excuses,'smokescreens', insults, a nutzo conspiracy theory and some misplaced agenda against those who don't believe in mythology. You act like an empty and angry little child, sticking fingers in his ears and throwing tantrums. You even claim that I was off topic when I mentioned religion in schools...HELLO? ANYBODY HOME?
Don't blame everyone else for your own inadequacies and ill behavior.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
Ever hear about the separation of church and state? Any school which accepts federal funds in America should not even be allowed to mention religion or anything to do with religion. That's what the framers wanted:

“My own mind is my church, the world is my country, to do good is my religion”

&#8213; Thomas Paine (1737 -1809)

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding.~Thomas Jefferson~ April 11, 1823
