Now how can you say Atheism is failing when the number of Atheist in America went from 8 million to 80 million in the past 20 years? That shows what the ability to read can do!

You can pray for your cellphone batteries to charge up, but I think you'll find it works better to plug it in. Then you can use that Bible quote of the day app - or astrology app.. same thing.

Living cell: A single living cell is sometimes referred to as being a “simple” form of life. But a one-celled animal can catch food, digest it, get rid of wastes, build a house for itself and engage in sexual activity. Each cell of the human body has been likened to a walled city, with a central government to maintain order, a power plant to generate energy, factories to produce proteins, a complex transportation system, and guards to regulate what is permitted to enter. And a single human body is made up of as many as 100 trillion cells. How appropriate the words of Psalm 104:24:“How many your works are, O Jehovah! All of them in wisdom you have made”!

And for each Human Cell in the body there are from 2 to 10 Individual Plants & Animals in that body... So Since there are more bugs in the human body than Human Cells in the human body, and the Human body would die with hours without all those animals living in it means They are in Charge of You....

I'll tell you what, construct us some form of alternative energy and we'll all be intrigued. The postulate is just ink on paper. A clever riddle, maybe. Thinking for the sake of thought. Science fiction. A penrose staircase of scientific terminology. It's like my in-law who makes reference to her 152 IQ all the time. Good for you. Now, show us what you can do with it.

He has no idea... I was designing, building and servicing things he has never conceived of probably since before he was born...

Have you noticed the ones that take such offense to rational, logical conversations and ideas are the ones that post annon and most the time mask their IP's ... That's because they generally have done little in their live to have pride in and don't want anyone to know that their Success is flipping two burgers at the same time.....

Yeah, this idea fascinates me. The intestines of human beings are colonies of bacteria without which we would perish. We have germs all over us, all in us. The mitochondria was probably once a separate creature that essentially got absorbed.

So it's almost like Zeno's Paradox. Where do we end and they begin? Or can we even use that kind of language and be accurate?

Imagine a future in which we can replace virtually any body part, internal or external. A person could replace his nose with a more pleasing one. Then maybe he needs a new heart. Then he starts to replace bits of his brain with more efficient ones. When something gives him trouble or wears out he just has a new one put in.

Keep doing that for decades. He is essentially immortal since there is no part of himself that cannot be replaced. But at what point is the original man gone and a totally new man in his place? If the replacing of parts is very slow and gradual, taking maybe a hundred years...can you draw a line that clearly shows where the guy changes into a new guy?

I don't think so.

This is pretty much why Creationism is stupid too. If a mutation can happen during reproduction and the offspring survive and this happens over and over again over time...where can you draw a line between "micro" and "macro" evolution?

The answer is you cannot. It's all just evolution. Micro and macro are terms the Creationists like to use because they cannot ignore the fact that changes within species do occur.

But that's another tangent.

To say complex systems of life just arose out of chemical soup is what makes evolutionist stupid... Ignoring scientific laws to support their dogmatic views is the norm... No knowing the difference between a mutation and an all out change is something they cannot comprehend... Has any species ever been proven to change into something other than what is was? Nope...

Not a issue of T.O.E. in the slightest... T.O.E is an overall theory of Unification of Forces to present a interconnected line from the first particle in the Universe to All the Observed Universe and Life is but a blip along that line... You do know that there are Living Organisms thriving in the hot radioactive cooling waters of Nuclear Power Plants right... Living organisms thriving in battery acid in your car battery and sulfuric acid hot springs... There are living organisms thriving under the ice of the poles at 60 below... There are living organisms thriving inside rocks in Death Valley... There are living organisms thriving in the sky just below the Ozone layer... Many of which thrive on chemo or photo synthesis without need for any other living organisms.....

But Even if I were to follow your mind set, which I don't, then you are disputing Creationism as the story goes that life was formed from non living dirt and magically life was breathed into the mud ball....

That's of course Idiotic ... First Evolution states it's a Theory and the reason is that evidence is over a time frame longer than the Human species has existed... You can claim the theory ignores scientific laws but that does not make it so... Please provide the Scientific Law you think the Theory breaks and then maybe it can be explained why what you or some other creationist think is a scientific law it not such or how it is not understood in the first place...

We can consider the dinosaur... there is Massive Evidence that one or more lines are still here today and flying around all over the place... Enough Evidence that to most rational people it is considered proven... Rational people can see a Wolf and then a Chihuahua and figure out that such change in a fairly geologically short period of time would lead to something so differentiated in say a few short million years that they would be very difficult to link... Rational people understand that every year new viruses pop up as new species from mutations and can logically relate that to larger more complex organisms...

But with all the evidence, and there are Millions of individual pieces of such, the Irrational, Illogical folks will ignore all evidence in order to claim Magic as truth...
