You can't even write a sentence and you're telling others that they look stupid. Interesting, really.

For real. The bible does nothing to explain why whales and snakes have vestigial leg bones.

Sorry I let you down grammar coach. Sometimes these Smart Phones have a mind of their own. Don't you worry about it if that's all you got to come back with. I am sure you have done the same thing.

Well sorry you feel that way. It appears that most people reading this thread feel the same way you do. However, it does look like you are going to see "In God we trust" on the courthouse now. Looks like somebody is ok with it. I know that makes all of you mad an scream "WE ARE NOT A THEOCRACY". Just as you Athiest or whatever you call yourself has tolerated Christians we have had to tolerate your insults over this website. This is the only way you can get your point across because you are not brave enough to stand in public and proclaim that "you believe in NOTHING". That evolution happened and all these things started falling in place all the sudden. The creation of man, woman, bearing children, the functions of our brain and body parts was not thought up by something or someone. That's not even the beginning. Look around you! Your belief in creation is a "Harry Potter" story to but it just happened all of the sudden without influence from any creator. I guess this computer in my hand magically appeared one day, The car I drive, the clothes I wear. All of these things landed in my lap. NO! They all had a creator or inventor. Yet the most amazing invention ever created(man and woman) with a brain that can store thousands and thousands of information and for a woman their bodies can bear children. You think something that amazing just formed on its own? I don't believe it. THAT is the most foolish thing I have ever heard.
13.77 billion years does not = "all of a sudden" Science does not = "magically" We do not simply look at the world around us, sit down and go "look what God did" we look deeper and find out how it all came about The god of the gaps is falling away.

And

The Reason no one will hardly stand up in public and say this is because they are afraid of a large group of people like you stoning them to death,being burned at the stack or running them or there family out of town because they believe differently then you do

all they want is a voice to, how would you feel if every time you walked out the door Thor's word was shoved down your throat or if allahu akbar was the phrase you hard daily and your God was seen as the Wrong one. I don't think you would feel as high or mighty with your faith then.

So you are saying that the earth formed on its own along with the creation of man and woman. But it took millions and billions of years to do so. But, it did not have a creator? All the things that happened tied in together somewhere down the line. But no
Creator was behind it... Correct?

And No, you would not be burned at the stake True Christians feel sorry for the unbeliever and te last thing they want to do is burn someone at the stake. We are not in ancient times anymore. That stuff is garbage an there are a lot of extreme Christians out there now that are insane because they put themselves higher than the unbeliever. They claim themselves as being holy. But we are all sinners just like you and me. The difference is that I have accepted Christ in my life and he forgives me for my sins. Christians stumble everyday and they need Jesus and the Holy Spirit to remind them of that. It's a daily struggle. I am sorry you feel that way an that is the way you think we are. Not everyone is like that though.

You do not have to be atheist to believe in science, simple man. I am a Christian who believes in evolution. I believe God provided all of the the "ingredients" and let nature take its course to form galaxies, solar systems, planets, and lifeforms over billions of years. I believe man descended from primates. With all of the evidence available to us to day, thinking otherwise is nothing short of sheer ignorance.

History says otherwise. At least own up to the fact that people of your faith have been guilty of horrible crimes against humanity. I have. It's not that difficult to acknowledge it and refuse to allow yourself to become like them.

Simple Man, you are wasting your efforts. You can not explain swimming unless you have been in the water. When the above non believers close their eyes for the last time...they will get it. Then they can rationalize their ideas to their maker. Hey you guys GOOD LUCK! I would rather go to paradise.

If humans were created as-is, explain Human Chromosome 2. If you don't know why Human Chromosome 2 is important, then you're not educated enough on evolution to form a valid opinion.

Or at least one worth listening to.

If you do your research you will find that there is no actual proof of evolution. It's all just based on theory.

Don't know a damn thing about genetics, do you? Do you even know the four sugars that make up genetic code? No?

Then what research have YOU done to disqualify evolution? None? That's what I thought.

You wouldn't trust a person with no medical training to advise you on a complex medical issue, why should we take a person who has no education in the field at his word on evolution?

Educate yourself, you'll find just how wrong you are. Evolution has and is being observed. For instance: the 10 wall lizards that were released on an island in Croatia in 1971. They originally ate insects, but since there's so few insects on the island, they became plant eaters and their entire gut system has changed...in the span of 40 years!

Deny all you want, doesn't change the facts of the matter.

I meant to comment on this as well, just to show how uneducated you really are on the subject.

Theory doesn't mean what you think it does. Here's a few hints:

Music Theory
Film Theory
Chess Theory
Engineering Theory
Heliocentric Theory
Cell Theory
Atomic Theory

I could go on, but it should be obvious by now you have no idea what you're talking about. Do I really need to post the definition of 'Theory' or do you think you can handle a dictionary?

You are right. We are wasting our time. I found out who "Logical Al" really is and I am not impressed no matter what he says. I think he is dumb as a box of rocks. I am not impressed by his comments and I am not about to believe it.

Then please, enlighten everyone as to who I really am. I'm not the who runs my mouth about things I know nothing about.

Instead of spewing whatever it is your preacher tells you, how about backing up your position with evidence? You know, perhaps explain why Human Chromosome 2 has telomeres where it shouldn't, and two centromeres where it should only have one? Of course, that would require knowledge of the subject, which you lack.

Everything in science is a theory which becomes progressively more conclusive as studies continue to be performed on it. Nothing in science will ever be considered proven. Ever. The very nature of scientific method prevents it. Gravity is a theory but we know it's there. Oxygen being an essential atmospheric gas is a theory but we know we can't live without it.

Or they could explain why the human genome is approximately 97% noncoding "junk" sequences that do absolutely nothing for us but are known to have a purpose in other animals.

I take it that you know that I am the head of the TN Libertarian Party... Also, I hope that you know this is not "left field," and has already been to the Fedral Supreme Court, which they did not find a freedom from religion implied in our constitution. AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE IS WINNING CASES AGAINST THE ACLU ON AN ONGOING BASIS, SO LISTEN AND KEEP CURRENT!
