Like a broken record you are.

The theory of evolution does not describe the origin of life. They are two separate topics.

That aside, your "theory" does no better a job of explaining it(how life originated).
For you it's a case of " I don't know how this happened, so god must have done it". And that is intellectually lazy, in my opinion.

You seem intent on trying to rationalize an irrational view.

Reporting on Emperor Nero's decision to blame the Christians for the fire that had destroyed Rome in A.D. 64, the Roman historian Tacitus wrote:
Nero fastened the guilt ... on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of ... Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome....5
What all can we learn from this ancient (and rather unsympathetic) reference to Jesus and the early Christians? Notice, first, that Tacitus reports Christians derived their name from a historical person called Christus (from the Latin), or Christ. He is said to have "suffered the extreme penalty," obviously alluding to the Roman method of execution known as crucifixion. This is said to have occurred during the reign of Tiberius and by the sentence of Pontius Pilatus. This confirms much of what the Gospels tell us about the death of Jesus.
Cornelius Tacitus(AD55-120) Roman historian: Most acclaimed works are the Annals and theHistories. The Annals cover the period from Augustus Caesar's death in AD14 to the death of the Emperor Nero in AD68, while the Historiesbegin after Nero's death and proceed to the reign of Domitian in AD96. In the Annals, Tacitus alludes to the death of Christ and to the existence of Christians at Rome. See Annals XV,44: But not all the relief that could come from man, not all the bounties that the prince could bestow nor all the atonements which could be presented to the gods, availed to relieve Nero from the infamy of being believed to have ordered the conflagration, the fire of Rome. Hence to suppress the rumor, he falsely charged with the guilt, and punished with most exquisite tortures, the persons commonly called Christians, who were hated for their enormities. Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius: but the pernicious superstition, repressed for a time, broke out again, not only through Judea, where the mischief originated, but through the city of Rome also." (The misspelling of Christ as "Christus" was a common error made by pagan writers). It is interesting that Pilate is not mentioned in any other pagan document which has survived. It is an irony of history that the only surviving reference to him in a pagan document mentions him because of the sentence of death he passed on Jesus the Messiah.
A.D. 64....A.D. 55-120.... As I said...

Not one mention, not one scribble on a wall of a person that we are told walked on water, healed the blind, turned water to wine, fed the masses with 2 fish and a loaf of bread, rose from the grave and did all kinds of miraculous stuff... After 2000 years of people searching ever wall, every pit, every tunnel we can find from the followers then, the Templers, through the holding of the Holy Lands through 12 Crusades...... And yet we find writings of how the wheat crops did, where to get laid, who is the best Gladiators were, census reports and all manner of trivial mention... 20 to 40 years after the time at hand we are told of such feats.... but Believers B'Leve...

Can you explain how a fish laid an egg that produced a chicken? Was there an amphibious chicken in the interim?
Obviously there were many intermediates. Just look at the fossil record for evidence of them.

What critter needs to read a book to survive and reproduce?
I really cannot see my response as an excuse.
I showed your claim as false, so no excuse needed. Evolution does not claim humans are better than other animals, religion does. So what is religions excuse for claiming man is superior to other animals? What is your criteria for superior, reading? If so, why did Jesus not write any words for us to read?

No he is Not a Republican ... He maintains no party affiliations.. and has views based on years of study and logical, rational positions on a host of subjects... He is always willing to have his views changed if presented evidence of sufficient nature and argument of sufficient rational to refute his positions...
Maybe if he is capable of making rational, logical argument on positions in agreement he may be correct on the issues in disagreement...
He has made it Clear he has No Preconceived Beliefs, he has stated ad nauseium he Never Believes.... He basis his views and positions on Evidence and Historical example.... Hence Faith, Belief are never a consideration in his positions....
Glen Beck also claims not to be a republican. I do not believe him either.

Penn Jillette had to school Beck on how a libertarian keeps religion seperate from government.

Only humans can be claimed as dependents. Now start treating homosexuals as humans or stop calling yourself Christian.
Farmers get plenty of tax breaks already.

I "againit" and it has nothing to do with men having sex or any religious positions... I'm against it because what Ever argument you make for it is the same argument that can be made for 2 men and a woman, 3 women and a man or 10 men and 10 women getting married... Such a move on a Federal Level to redefine the term Marriage allows for the next bump in culture that leads to 4 men and a Goat once goats are given equal status by the PETA folks.... I have not a homophobic thought in my head, have gay friends and could give a crap about who does who in their private lives.... I would have Just as much of a issue with a Heterosexual Pride Parade as a Gay Pride Parade as I not only don't give a crap who does who I think it should not be made a public display...
But Marriage has been defined as One Man and One Woman and to redefine it allows for a toe in the door for three women and a horse....
So you do not care what homosexuals do in their private life, yet seemed to very concerned what they do in public life.
Animals do not have constitutional rights, so that slippery slope argument is insane and has no foundation.
Now the multiple partner thing may be valid, but just what is the problem with the multiple partner marriage?
BtW, just because you feel, for some undisclosed reason, homosexuals should not make a public display, should we respect your wishes that infringe upon others freedom to pursue happiness?

I am pretty sure the bible claims god made man from dirt, so what is it that contradicts your own religion? Oh, that magic transformed it, not a billion years of natural forces.

How is your faith anything more than a illusion?
As far as evolution goes, it has been explained to you many times and is not my fault that you can not understand simple concepts
One more time;
I prayed to God,Iknow that is a Fact
My prayer request was very specific , that request,unbeknownst to me,was answered ,during the same time period ,during which I was making the request to God,between 8;30 AM amd 9;00AM.
With one exception,it was not answered in the MANNER that I had requested. Had it been answered that way,I would have had reason to entertain the idea that the response was a coincidence, but the way in it was answered,eliminated that possibility. I did not find out about the result to my request till 4;00P;M; that afternoon.
mMany times after that,I have called on the lord with subsequent petitions and they have also been answered.
I know,I lived it...You don't know,you didnot live it,Therefore you are TOTALLY DISQUASLIFIED FROM judging or opining on the veracdity of that which I have lived through and personally experienced.Period,Case closed..
That applies not only to you ,,but also,Chromium and thhe other nonbelievers on this thhread..And no ,I am not angry,I have a Good that I rely on and donot base my faith on misinformed opinions or emotional disturbances, I leave that to the Faithless
