You 2 sound like the comedy writers for Hogans Goat
Don't give up your day jobs or you will wind up working with Witchetty ,,, You know decorating Christmas trees for that Christian lady that gave her a job
No Mas Pantalones por favor
Honestly, what is with your obsession with that phrase?
Pretty sure everyone knows you don't wear pants, especially your nurse who has actually performed an acid wash on her eyes trying to remove that visual.
Poor child, she's damaged for life.

Which film would that be?
If you are referring to the link you posted, then no, I didn't watch because I don't click on links.

If there is something you wish to discuss, go for it.

If the basis of your discussion revolves around a You tube video how much credibility does it actually possess?

You have your beliefs , I have mine and that is the way it is.
I have always said, whatever a person wants to believe is their business, and I have no problem with it, until they demand that their religious beliefs are 100% correct, yet have no proof to back up their statement, then I have a problem.

If you want to believe in a God, that's fine, but don't tell me it's the only religion that is correct and 100% true w/out solid tangible and testable proof.

If I want a Scientific view on God ,Science by it's own admission ,is unable to provide one. It has eunuchized itself by it's own design.
If I want a Scientific view on the origins of life i get contradictory responses .
On the one hand Science claims that only life can create life.
On the other hand , Science claims that Life does not need a creator , therefore , no need to invoke God as creator.
However , in order to prove their theory that ID is not needed , they constantly spend countless hours using their intelligence by devising experiments trying to create life.
Having no evidenced to support the theory that life arose by natural means , they attempt to create life by using intelligent means , which they claim are not needed to create life.
That contradiction is rather difficult to explain.
So , calling on Science to explain what it is unable to explain
seems to be an exercise in futility ,somewhat akin to asking the village idiot to intelligently address that issue.
That is the same results I get , when the Atheists respond to what I post. Excuses ,nonsense and gibberish because they are unable to discern between that which is natural and the supernatural.
However ,what you choose to believe is your business ,why you choose to believe as you do ,is your business.
You keep looking To Science to provide you with an answer that Science itself says it is unable and incapable of providing.
If Science claims it can not provide the answer , then only a fool would continue looking for an answer where none can be found.
I looked elsewhere and found my answer.
That you refuse to accept the amswer that I have arrived at as valid in no way takes away from it's validity.
I do not base my faith on your opinions AND none of you have provided any evidence that would cause me to question my faith.
My faith is based partly on criteria that reasonably explains who created life and the other part being criteria that I have tested
and found to be completely reliable.
It is not based on "I don't know ,I can't explain it or in waiting for Science to explain what it states it is unable to do.
In other words, you select whatever ju-ju takes your fancy and defy people to disprove your imaginary sky pixie.

Of course, science can't disprove all the other gods that people worship either; which makes them just as real as yours.

That is what Creationist and Religionist claim, or someone like you.
That's typical of their desperate tactics.

Science has been so spectacularly successful in explaining our reality that people like curious have no option other than to revert to open lies and disengenuity as they pursue their superstitions and ju-ju.

Scientists have often declared that the Theory of Evolution can be falsified. In fact, they've even said what it would take to do just that:

If fossils are found in strata where they shouldn't be.

That's all it would take.

So why don't creationists (being the lying, dishonest types that they are) secrete fossils in rocks from different geological times?

The answer is they would do it readily. However, they also know how spectacularly successful science is and that it wouldn't take long before their fraud would be exposed.

OK Now you are telling me that you know what I do and do not understand.
Anyhow ,given your example.Given that you are intelligent,I would have no reason to believe that you are not capable of designing a video game and that you would not have a reason to lie to me.
What you accomplished is not impossible.
Now ,if you told me that these letters amd numbers had somehow arranged themselves in such a , on their own, then I would question your answer.
In other words , the video did not design itself and if you kept insisting that it had , then I would question your mental stability , with good reason to do so.
I can not begin to comprehend how it is possible that intelligence ,life and consciousness ,can somehow by accident or natural means can be created by forces that have no way of knowing about those properties , how they function or what makes them function.
To take it a step further , I am not arrogant enough to believe that there is no intelligence greater than human intelligence.
On the other hand, you believe that some unknown ,unintelligent force has the ability to create something much greater than itself and provide it with propertie that itself does not have.
Once ,I shared many of the same doubts that you have.
Events that occured in my life led me on a search. Those events were so powerful that they lead me to comclude that there is an unseen power that was responding to my needs.
That power is what I call God.
some will claim that what I experienced and the results thereof
were caused by my imagination , that they did not really occur or that they can be attributed to chance.
They draw those coclusions based on their opinions and having never experienced what I experienced.
They feel qualified to pass judgement on something they know nothing about....That is life...
You have your beliefs , I have mine and that is the way it is.
Yet you believe god needed no creator. Sorry to blow your whole arguement.

If it was all made by a creator, isn't anyone going to ask how the creator was made? To think that we all came from nothing is pretty far-fetched, but not as far-fetched as to think an almighty being came from nothing to create the rest. If infinity has no end, what's to say it has a beginning? No need for a creator.

Exactly!! The layperson often thinks of life and non-life as a
distinction between a human and a rock, as one example, yet this does not even begin to grasp the wide spectrum of what might fall under a definition for life. As atheist writer Austin Cline asks, "[w]hat sort of definition would include viruses, but not fire... sterile mules, but not self-replicating crystals?" Life is a more ambiguous concept than we think, not because it is some mystical or magical force, but because the line between life and non-life is very unclear at times.
Yup... and even what constitutes life individually is not so black and white either... Humans have multitudes of organisms inhabiting our bodies... there are more Bugs in the human body than Human cells in the human body... we even have Individualized organisms that are specific to the individual human such as Mitochondria ... With out them the Human dies, without the human Most the organisms die but not all as some bacterium survive the human death and get passed to other organisms scavenging the dead... So are We as Humans Alive or are we each a Billion Billion Billion individual lives inhabiting a human colony....

That still doesn't constitute "no need" for ethics, morality, civility, decency or humane humanity.

Scientific Evidence that God Created Life
by Thomas F. Heinze
(Go to: Main Heinze Page)
(Go to: www.creationism.org )

Did God Create Life? Ask a Protein!
A Cell Must Have a Membrane
Where Did the Information in Cells Come from?
Redefining Science to Eliminate the Creator
Did Time Perform the Miracle of Life?
Did Life Come from Space?
Did God Create Life? Ask a Protein!
In 1953 Stanley Miller performed an experiment which rocked the world! He showed that passing a spark through a chosen mixture of gasses will form amino acids, the building blocks of proteins which are the main ingredients of living cells. Given an inch, a mile was taken. We were taught that lightning strikes provided the sparks that formed the amino acids which concentrated in an “organic soup,” and linked together to form proteins. These were claimed to have gotten together with DNA to form the first living cell.
But amino acids will not link together to form proteins! It was a bit like claiming that if bricks formed in nature they would get together to build houses. Proteins are so hard to make that in all of nature, they never form except in already living cells. Never! This scientific fact stands in stark contrast to what was taught.
Which viewpoint is best supported by the evidence? Did life begin without a Creator or did God create it?
Evidence that life never comes from non-living materials is so abundant that it is a basic principle of science called the Principle of Biogenesis (living things come only from living things). Atheists and many agnostics have faith that contrary to this basic principle of science, life did evolve spontaneously from chemicals at least once. They now call their theory “abiogenesis” which comes from roots that mean “not Biogenesis.” They no longer use the term “spontaneous generation.”
Is abiogenesis possible? Not only are proteins never formed in nature outside of living cells, the amino acids from which they are built are of two kinds: Half are called left-handed and half right-handed. Only proteins containing all left handed amino acids will work in living things because proteins which contain any right-handed amino acids have the wrong shape and will not connect properly to the proteins around them. It is a bit like when you take a piece out of a puzzle, turn it upside down and try to put it back in where you took it out. It is the same size and shape, but it won’t fit. In nature, all left handed amino acids are only formed by living cells. Amino acids formed in experiments like Miller’s, are half left, and half right-handed so they will not work in the proteins of living things. This is more scientific evidence that life could not form without a Creator. Add it to the fact that in nature, no proteins at all will form outside of cells.
Cells can make proteins because:

Fair enough

However, contrary to what some of the believers in here think, their religion does not have a monopoly on good ethics and morality.

Fortunately, in countries where religion is dying (that includes the USA), women do have control of their uteruses.
