So what is the purpose of this topic? Just to argue with each other till the end of the world? Truly this is not how one should live life. What makes this such and interesting topic to bash each other. And what of man kind role in this?
Some feel it is just a thread to argue on.
Some feel it is about holy myths not being allowed in public schools.

In the study, they research every religion ever known to man kind. Two things show up in all the religions, can you guess what it is?
1) They claim to be the right religion of all religion.
2) They point to one Deity.
Yes they are all correct in their own mind.

It seems that the closest religion to be correct, is no other then Wicca.
A wiccan once said "1) They claim to be the right religion of all religion."

Even the Bible says God is known for many names, does it not say that? What if by chance, Jehovah is also Zeus? Maybe Hercules was Jesus.
What if by chance a myth is just a myth.
Maybe a delusion was a delusion.

But with people, being open minded is just too much to think over, and no one will ever really give in to hearing out what another person says because they want to be right.
For some on this thread your statement rings true. I agree.

Higher education can prove enlightening for some.

Matthew D. Staheli, 2011

Why did I leave? Not only is there zero evidence that anything taught by the Mormon Church is true (something that I could live with), there is actually countering evidence opposing almost everything that the Mormon Church teaches to be true (something that I could not live with). As a scientist, it is impossible for me to believe something that has mountains of evidence against it.

Jehovah’s Witnesses—Who Are We?
We come from hundreds of ethnic and language backgrounds, yet we are united by common goals. Above all, we want to honor Jehovah, the God of the Bible and the Creator of all things. We do our best to imitate Jesus Christ and are proud to be called Christians. Each of us regularly spends time helping people learn about the Bible and God’s Kingdom. Because we witness, or talk, about Jehovah God and his Kingdom, we are known as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

<quoted text>The name is DARWIN. Guess you do not have enough respect to say the name properly. Typical of hypocrites.
Did anyone claim Darwin's theory was the theory for everything? Nope, so why divert and rant about this?
You and YaA both do the same, divert from what is the theory, to what is not the theory, as if that had anything to do with the debate. Got a problem with Darwin? Then spit it out, but diverting just makes you look to have no valid argument.
INCOMPLETE, Flawed theory.

Does NOT validated, or even really give explanation for that matter, on the actual beginnings of the "origins of life".

This was not written to me, but I want to take the opportunity to strongly agree with you in your condemnation of that commenter. And of almost every Republican and rightwing hypocrit, whether in media, political office or campaign operation, or individual citizen. I think that the haters are traitors, effectively, beginning with Rush Limbaugh and everyone who supports him, and including most of Fox, Ann Coulter and all the other - excuse me ladies - rightwing blonde bimbos on TV.
I think much of what was Bush's fault was even more the fault of those who promoted him as a candidate for President, when he was not qualified, and then of his high officials, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Wolfowitz, Pipes, Fieith, Abrams, Poindexter, and of the media neocons who so avidly promoted the war - Crystal, however it is spelled, and so many others, and not even excusing some of the socalled mainstream media.
I am now proud of many on MSNBC who are strongly anti-invasion of Syria - Chris Matthews is a bit hotheaded about it, but Chris Hayes is magnificent as usual in his careful thoughtfulness. I also am proud of Rachel, Larry O'Donnell (Last Word), Ezra Klein, Ed Schultz, and the other outspoken ones, and even the pretty ones!
I believe that the evidence is probably convincing. I doubt that the outcome of a US military strike would be better than to wait and try other options first. If Syria launches a second chemical weapon attack because of international inaction, then there would be a better case and a better chance to round up more allies. but I favor something more radical, such as asking Russia to develop a zone around its naval base, for Assad and his supporters, but with access to the sea for international shippint. Then the chemical weapons should be gathered into the Russian naval zone, and safely destroyed with UN supervision. Let Russia be the heroes who save the situation, that would be the one way to get them to help. Then partition Syria, and move people into land areas occupied by people with one religion and tribe, and whatever, and make it a federation. Half of the Middle Eastern nations need to be divided in such a way, since their boundaries make no sense./ Drawn up by some idiot Englishmen a century ago, as Jon Stewart and John Oliver demonstrated.
<quoted text>
I suggested that on another thread-let the terrorist alliances (Hezbollah, Hamas, al qeada and other rebels) have the north half of Syria (closest to Russia) and the peaceful folks not disturbed by secular democracy, the south part--closest to Israel.
Mark a nice big, red X on the world maps, in honor of the new nation of ThugsandPalsistania, and let them battle themselves into oblivion.

<quoted text>Well I don't have cable news right now, so I do not know what MSNBC are saying at the moment, but I believe your testimony that they are not like Fox news in the days of Iraq, and are not pushing for war like fox was. Fox were fully supporting everything the Bush administration did in that war.
Unlike republicans, the democrats are not blindly supporting war just because their president is in power.
Sista showed here colors today. She is simply a blind partisan. I cannot take her criticisms seriously as she is so partisan, it only looks to be for partisan reasons now.
She simply defends Bush, and condemns Obama.
No, I condemn Saddam and bin_laden et al.

And any U.S. admin that cannot see the wisdom in the good of self reliance derived from northern continental oil expansion.

<quoted text>The classic Bush tactic he used while begging for the Iraq war. He simply used the names of Saddam and Bin Laden in the same sentence. Even thought their was no real ties between the two, despite the trumped up charges Bush peddled out.
But it was enough to trick the idiots who cannot understand the English language to well.
Studies show at the time of the invasion, most Americans thought Saddam was part of the 9/11 attacks.
Why? Because Bush used the 9/11 and Saddam in the same sentence often, even though he never once actually accused Saddam of being a perpetrator in 9/11. But of course he knew most Americans cannot focus on a sentence properly, so the deception was easy.
Now let me ask, is Obama using such propaganda tactics now to get war?
You're wasting your breathes.
Yes and Amen

A friend brought me a load of assorted steel, we unloaded back of my shed. I went into the shed, back to the door, and all of a sudden, the hair on the back of my neck stood strait up!
I turned to find a PO'd Young male Tarantula
standing at the door, staring me down, standing in an

He was in the steel, and followed me around the yard!

I can not grasp what you said because you have said nothing that I could hear. I have read what you have WRITTEN ,which according to you , I should consider as " the pitiful writings of men"
Your explanation about the chicken should be featured on a comedy show.
You are alluding to an unwitnessed event that no one knows took place ,where it took place or when it took place.
other than , according to you "Chicken and Chicken Egg occurred at the exact same instant when the first person Name the foul he converted"
But I could be wrong ,, Were you there ? or did someone tell you about it? If so ,was it hundreds of years after this event took place?
You know where I am going with that ...I will go no further.

Great post!
Still laughing!

<quoted text>No one worships Plato. Plato's words are not hinged upon Plato existing or not. It does not matter if Plato was Plato. It does not matter if the writings attributed to Plato were of Plato.
Plato's words are just food for thought. No one need hinge his worldview on Plato's every word. He is free to accept of not accept his philosophies. No threats of eternal lakes of fire come with Plato's advice. Plato makes no demands. He is simply a philosopher and claims to be no more than that.
Now apply that to your Jesus. You go far beyond just taking his words as advice, you insist he is a god and must be obeyed. You insist his death caused some absolution of peoples atrocities.
I say he has no right to give this absolution, because I do not see him as a god. I am not even sure he was a person. And you cannot prove either.
He Saved Me!
Believe what you want!

<quoted text>So I am anti-American because I oppose the pledge? Well thanks for proving my point.
You show why it is harmful to those who just sit during this pledge. Because kids with your mentality will ostracize them for simply practicing their rights. The right to religious freedom. The right not to pledge or pray to a god. Note the JW's do not do this, as it is a sacrilege to them.
What I find Anti American is anti secularism. And you show that clearly.
See... There is where your wrong!
We had a couple of JW's in our school too!
We never though ill of them for not standing, as our teacher told us about it!
But they NEVER said WE could NOT do it, as you Liberals
want to make US stop!
That is where YOU are Anti-American!
Keep your hands off OUR Rights!
