More assumptions from a self-admitted internet troll. Especially when you ridicule Christians (and I assume others who practice religion, but you fail to really bring them up) for their own hope and faith...it all borders a bit on hypocrisy. Imagine that.
Assumption? Hardly. Christianity is shrinking in the USA and everywhere else except Africa. Those new African christians are bust burning witches and trying to pass laws that would make being gay a death penalty offense.

I admitted being a troll where?

When Muslims or Hindus are trying to have teacher led prayer in our schools, they will get their turn.

I didn't assume anything. Also you know nothing of my parents. They taught me respect and they did not force religion of any kind on me. I was told about God and took to church as a kid. When I became a teenager it was my choice on the way I believed. So why the disrespect I did not disrespect you in any way. My point is if you don't believe that is your choice but you should respect the beliefs of others no matter what religion you choose. Honestly you say for christians not to force their religion on you but yet you want to force your beliefs on us by taking God out of things.
Nope, I don't know anything about your parents but by your admission, I am correct, you were indeed indoctrinated into christianity. I could be wrong though, did they perhaps instruct you in other religions and gods, maybe give you the arguments for atheism? No?

You are correct in the fact that I want your god out of schools. Religion has no place there. The 1st amendment seems to be in agreement with me. Religion belongs in churches and your own homes. I keep hearing about this personal relationship with Christ. Keep it personal.

More assumptions, geez troll. With all that free time on your hands, maybe you could get some f%$kin' facts instead of hoping shit into existence in an effort to do nothing more to piss off people you think are happy because you're a miserable piece of crap. Oh, irony.

You're right. That was some jibber jabber. Do you have a coherent thought in there anywhere?
Really? No not jibber jabber its the truth and a fact. It is all over the news internet everyday you just fail to open your eyes to what is going on. Seems like you are a very disrespectful person. You are really blind sited on a lot of things. Read a bible and it speaks of everything going on in this world today. That is my proof and that is all I need. So you believe as you wish and we will see who is right on our day of judgement. Still you did not answer my question why must you be so disrespectful? Hmmmm seems like you are avoiding that question. Not all christians are a like. I have friends and family who do not believe as I do I do not force anything on them. I love them for who they are not what they believe.

Being a Christian I agree religion shouldn't be taught in school except elective classes in high school or college. We have plenty of time to learn at home or church. The main argument for atheists is that is offends people and it's never been proven to be real. However the theory of evolution is like a religion and offends people and hasn't ever been proved hence the term theory. It should not be taught in school either except in the circumstances I previously mentioned.

The way you use the word theory and the meaning of a scientific theory are vastly different. Your apparent understanding of the definition theory would be more of a hypothesis within the science community.

It's a scientific theory. A little different than just a theory. Look it up.

evolution hasn't been a "theory" for a hundred years. it is a well-established fact, demonstrated countless times per day worldwide in multiple fields of science. I do not push my atheism on others, but I do not enjoy having to pretend to be pray in order to be socially acceptable. I don't think kids should have to either.

Either way it still hasn't been proven with concrete evidence.

No, it hasn't been proven that we've evolved from anything. There is no documented evidence that's ever been provided.

Wrong. Every flu season we see the virus evolve and mutate. Same with antibiotic resistant germs. This is evolution on a small scale.

There's plenty of documented evidence. Show us some evidence of your "god" and we'll let you indoctrinate our kids.

I'm not talking about it in this form, I'm talking about humans evolving. We have been humans from day one, and haven't evolved from another species. I wouldn't consider your example as evolution but more so adaptation. The virus hasn't changed but grew and has become immune to antibiotics.

there's plenty. how about this: Chimpanzee DNA was sequenced in 2005, and is 96% identical to ours. They possess 24 pairs of chromosomes, while humans possess 23 pairs -- because our chromosome #2 is an obvious fusion of two chromosome still found in chimps (and other great apes), since named 2A and 2B. Try on some science, it's interesting!

Wrong again. There is no concrete evidence that humans have evolved from anything. Show me some proof and I don't want some story some guy wrote. I want pictures, videos, eye witness accounts.

It's funny that non-religious people always say we want proof that so and so religion exists. However when asked to provide proof in what they believe in, we never see it but are expected to believe them.

I know about this and have read about the study, however there are a lot of scientists that are saying humans are a separate creation. I in fact just read an article about this less than 2 months ago.

Your kids for starters is evidence. Not everyone is blessed to be able to have children. You make no sense its called faith. Maybe if you was to read the bible you would see evidence that you seek . Like I said before the bible speaks of things that are happening now and things to come. The way I see it no proof needed . You have no proof of your beliefs either you are just going by faith as well. You will never convince me God isn't real so please stop trying. Bible proof read it. Open your eyes and your mind.

You want eye witness accounts of something that takes eons to happen? Ok Einstein. I'll be sure to get that for you.

If that tells you anything.
Haha, actually I have many bones from different species buried in 5 different states. I did this to see how the different climates would affect them also.
