Then I'm unsure what you were trying to say. God created Adam out of single-celled organisms living in dust?
<quoted text>
The Earth is not alive or dead. Why can't life arise from an unliving Earth?
in the beginning life was set into motion. all things were created and man, plant/vegetation, fish ,fowl, cattle and all creeping things were commanded to bring forth after their own kind. god also told them to go forth and re-plenish the earth. my question is why use the word replenish as though it was a do over?.. the answer to which came first the chicken or the egg? of course the chicken. it brought forth after it's kind. at the beginning god was the other half of the equation, but turned it over to male+female procreation.

Der HERR ist mein Hirte, mir wird nichts mangeln.
Er weidet mich auf einer grünen Aue und führet mich zum frischen Wasser.
Er erquicket meine Seele. Er führet mich auf rechter Straße um seines Namens willen.

Und ob ich schon wanderte im finstern Tal, fürchte ich kein Unglück;
denn du bist bei mir, dein Stecken und Stab trösten mich.
Du bereitest vor mir einen Tisch im Angesicht meiner Feinde. Du salbest mein Haupt mit Öl und schenkest mir voll ein.
Gutes und Barmherzigkeit werden mir folgen mein Leben lang, und ich werde bleiben
im Hause des HERRN immerdar.

Blessings only come as personal evidence AFTER the demonstration of faith. Does that make sense?
Oh, so god only presents himself and helps who is already believing the story? Ok, but what does that have to do with why god expects someone to believe before presenting evidence?
If you would just answer this question, I would greatly appreciate it.
And no, it does not make sense, that is why I keep asking. You have offered not a single reason that god expects faith over evidence based belief. So it does not make sense to only help those who believe without evidence.
I probably asked you the same question about ten different ways, yet you never answer it.
Make sense of it by offering reasoning. It is as if you do not know what reasoning means.

Why????? Why not?
Well, It's written God created Adam from the dust of the earth. It's also been written on this thread all life is related. With that said, who's to say the single cells weren't already in the dust? Unless you believe that evolution only pertains to life forms? Why couldn't the earth evolve? In light of the fact all the building blocks for life come from the earth.
Actually, it makes perfect sense to me. The world was created before man. Even science doesn't dispute that.
Well man came long after most life on earth. And if the dust had single cells in it, maybe the bible should have said so. Fact is, the story teaches us no real information. It is clearly a fable creation story, as all primitive societies create stories like this to satisfy the questions. You simply believe the primitive peoples tale.

Earth did evolve. Not in the way life did, but it was a long process. Very different than what the bible claims.

All the creation stories of the bible are in contradiction with the known evidence of the day. I see you wish to tie them together, but it does not fit.

Interesting... "All life came from one source". "All life on earth is related". Then would it be inconceivable to believe in a creator?
Model corals must be representative of coral diversity, and include Indopacific and Caribbean species, autotrophs and heterotrophs, branching, massive and plating species, and species with different algal symbionts. Because of the corals' evolutionary history, which suggests that extant corals are not a monophyletic group and different families can be both ecologically and physiologically very different, no single species would be representative of corals in general.

I just found that bit of info interesting)

You seem to support the dumbest laws.
I served our country protecting the right to freedom of speech. It would be a shame to see someone arrested for making a protest by trampling on a piece of fabric.
It is so ironic when conservatives support such laws. And I am sure you have no idea why it is ironic.
You wish I didn't. I just had to PATIENTLY wait for the REST of you duhmbos to figure THAT out.

I see nothing you said applies to my statement.
Bullying is coercing a child to pledge to a god. Bullying occurs when children refuse to pledge to a god. The bully is the religious people.
The bully is the religious people who insisted god be added to the pledge. The bully is the people who insist children give respects to your god.
The bully is the religious people who use government to do this bullying.
Bullying is bullying-and poliTICS is no more absent of it than religion, or anything else, Duquette.

(You waste your time tossing those little, stifled inside the box, packages of narrow minded bigotry across the boards here Mr.)

This reminded me of something I read not too long ago. I finally found it again.
Maybe this is the kind of answer you are looking for.
http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2009/02/16...
So you found an article that you feel may answer the million dollar question? Strange how you cannot tell us in your own words. I cannot debate an entire article written by someone else, as you clearly do not have the knowledge of why god stays hidden.
The article seems like nonsense to me. It contradicts itself so often, it is nonsensical.
Some crap about giving people space? What? I do not need space. I need answers. Answers you clearly do not have.
Then the article says no evidence is given, but the bible is evidence you should believe. Contradiction. Either it is evidence or it is not. I say it is not. It is claims, not evidence. The article calls it "revelations". Well that is a claim, not evidence.
Anyway, I doubt you will try to defend someone else's article anyway, so I will not continue debating the article unless you try to defend it.

That conclusion isn't logical. Something having a beginning doesn't mean it has a creator.

Wait, are you saying Adam and Eve were single celled organisms?
Evolution DOES only pertain to life forms.

Ecoute, Israel!Eternel, notre Dieu, est le seul Eternel.

Tu aimeras l'Eternel, ton Dieu, de tout ton coeur, de toute ton ame et de toute ta force.
Et ces commandements, que je te donne aujourdhui, seront dans ton coeur.
Tu les inculqueras a tes enfants, et tu en parleras quand tu seras dans ta maison, quand tu iras en voyage, quand tu te coucheras et quand tu te leveras.
Tu les lieras comme un signe sur tes mains, et ils seront comme des fronteaux entre tes yeux.
Tu les écriras sur les poteaux de ta maison et sur tes portes.

Why? Because you don't want kids to learn actual science, instead of your primitive mythology?

We can only lead our own nation by example, try to "get along" with other nations, and do what works for THIS nation, here.
Well if you keep pushing for god to be in the pledge, you fail at leading secularism.
So sad you are not up to trying to make a better world. Let the big boys handle it and you can go suck on a pacifier.
If you do not want the government to control everything, then tell it to get out of pushing gods. Do you know how hypocritical your position is? You guys do not know what a contradiction is, do you?

Let' see..I'm thinking if I was touring a historical museum or something similar, that held memorabelia of the Nazi era, I would perceive it to be an appropriate attribute, attesting to the FACTS of the era...while NOT considering it to be anything worth "worshiping", therefore, I would consider it a positive element displayed to represent a negative regime , given the circumstances.
Betond that, it certainly would NOT qualify as anything worthy of the idoltry of worship to me, or worthy of giving another moments thought to, that's for sure.
Do you always allow your mind to be so easily manipulated into an almost childlike rebellion, by words you deem different from that of which you might perceive to mean otherwise?
That is a lot of "it's" and not once did you identify what "it" was. Seeing as how you responded to a variety of possible "its', your post is stupid.
Learn to identify your subject.

f course you do not question your priorities. I can see you just knee jerk gibberish that is irrelevant. You dodge everything I say, and spew nonsense.

<quoted text>Some kids now know they no longer have to say the pledge due to the insistence of god being in the pledge, thus many are not getting the patriotic idea you are pushing here. It is due to your kind forcing your god upon the pledge.
I do not doubt it will come to a point when no public schools say the pledge due to the god part being in there.
So maybe you need to check your priorities.

Allow me to articulate better. The genes of one species (the snake) can evolve into a different species (the bird). Or visa-versa. Then the genes of one species would have to be able to form a completely different DNA.
If there are so many commonalities in life why are there so many different species? Isn't it within reason to venture that all life came from one source?
Well again, snakes did not evolve into birds, and birds did not evolve into snakes.
Your children's DNA is not exactly like your own. There is a measurable difference in them. And the longer the chain of ancestors, the more variation of DNA. That variation tells us we are related, and yes we may very well have all come from one source. If you could only show your claim of a source, that would show evidence of a god. But of course evidence of a god is impossible if no god exists. Likely why no evidence of a god can be had.
