The Martians "created" humans.
Where did the Martians come from? They have always been.
How dare you blasphemy against Martian! Martian created man!

Life is but a fleeting time on this earth, may God have mercy on your soul.

You absolutely did not answer my question. Why are Atheist so determined to spread their message? What do you fear? Are you guys afraid that people, will discover that your Big Bang theory is a farce. You cannot have somthing come from nothing, this goes against the scientific method of cause and effect.
Since that is the case, then we know that our universe and the fine tuned conditions for life on Earth have come from the Creator our God. This is what must be taught in our school systems. Intelligent Design is the most plausible scientific explanation for life.

ID is a scientific explanation, lol.

Just wandering did anyone else , live by the bible and the belt growing up? You know like the song. I know I did , and if you were like me you feared both. One could cause you pain, one could cause you faith , but both would help lead you where you needed to be in life. We lived by the bible and learned by the belt,(if you were lucky enough to get the belt, most of the time we got throne switches or willows.)
Here is the lyrics to one great song
P.s. I am ready for the hate...

They were both made of leather, both black and frayed and worn.
I was brought up to respect them since the day that I was born.
One came here from England; it's been handed down for years.
The other one was ordered from a catalog at Sears.

One my mamma read to me till I was well into my teens.
I thought all the other one was for was to hold up daddy's jeans.
Till I told a lie and learned it had another purpose too.
Out behind the she'd my daddy said, "This'll hurt me more than you."

Cause one had my daddy's name on it, the other said King James.
With love they taught us lessons but we feared them both the same.
One led us to heaven and the other left a welt (hurt like hell)
Those were the days when kids were raised with a bible and a belt.
I remember when I was twelve I stole a dime store comic book.
How Mamma read where the scriptures said to take back what I took.
When I refused my daddy grabbed my arm and said,'Come on'
I needed more, he knew, than just Matthew, Mark and Luke and John.

Well sometimes they made me cry, sometimes they made me fightin' mad
And I wished I'd been raised without them like some other children had
But now I'm grown with kids of my own and I know just how they felt
You know it seems to me what the world still needs is a bible and a belt.

Cause one had my daddy's name on it, the other said King James.
With love they taught us lessons but we feared them both the same.
One led us to heaven and the other hurt like hell
Those were the days when kids were raised with a bible and a belt.
A bible and a belt.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour a day to drain the fluids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. And every afternoon when the man in the bed next to the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed would live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the outside world. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake, the man had said. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Lovers walked arm in arm amid flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band, he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Unexpectedly, an alien thought entered his head: Why should hehave all the pleasure of seeing everything while I never get to see anything? It didn't seem fair. As the thought fermented, the man felt ashamed at first. But as the days passed and he missed seeing more sights, his envy eroded into resentment and soon turned him sour. He began to brood and found himself unable to sleep. He should be by that window - and that thought now controlled his life.

Late one night, as he lay staring at the ceiling, the man by the window began to cough. He was choking on the fluid in his lungs. The other man watched in the dimly lit room as the struggling man by the window groped for the button to call for help. Listening from across the room, he never moved, never pushed his own button which would have brought the nurse running. In less than five minutes, the coughing and choking stopped, along with the sound of breathing. Now, there was only silence--deathly silence.

The following morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths. When she found the lifeless body of the man by the window, she was saddened and called the hospital attendant to take it away--no words, no fuss. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it all himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall.

Moral of the story:

The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice...it is a positive attitude we consciously choose to express. It is not a gift that gets delivered to our doorstep each morning, nor does it come through the window. And I am certain that our circumstances are just a small part of what makes us joyful. If we wait for them to get just right, we will never find lasting joy.

The pursuit of happiness is an inward journey. Our minds are like programs, awaiting the code that will determine behaviors; like bank vaults awaiting our deposits. If we regularly deposit positive, encouraging, and uplifting thoughts, if we continue to bite our lips just before we begin to grumble and complain, if we shoot down that seemingly harmless negative thought as it germinates, we will find that there is much to rejoice about.



Good Day All

Hypocrites are never faithful.
You are asking him about the taste of dick because you are a fat girl who longs to find out but no one will even talk to you? No no, do not cry, just go on a diet and exercise STEP AWAY FROM THE TWINKIE

You really got low down & dirty with that one, didn't you, Monster?

If all Satan could think of to tell you to call me is a "fat girl," then he's not only unoriginal, but he's also a wuss.

I've been called a fat chick by the prince of darkness. These satanists sure are bad asses.

"The scientific method is commonly described as a four-step process involving observations, hypothesis, experiments, and conclusion.

Design theorists hypothesize that if a natural object was designed, it will contain high levels of CSI. Scientists then perform experimental tests upon natural objects to determine if they contain complex and specified information. One easily testable form of CSI is irreducible complexity, which can be discovered by experimentally reverse-engineering biological structures to see if they require all of their parts to function.

Atheism is simply not believing in a god. That is it, nothing else.
Regarding your remarks against science, you should first understand what you are criticizing. There is such thing as a "method of cause and effect". And Intelligent Design requires a supernatural component, which is why it is unscientific.
Yes, but the Big Bang without a known cause would have to be deemed supernatural as well. An unintelligent cause of life is supernatural.

Why? Because you say so?
Just because you can't concieve of something, doesn't make it impossible, or even improbable.
It only means you haven't opened your mind to the possibilities.

You stop with "I don't understand it so goddidit."
Try thinking "I don't understand it but I'm going to keep learning."

Deemed what by whom? I think you've been watching Ghost Hunter marathons a little too much.
Definitions of natural, supernatural, artificial, etc. are human things. Isn't it interesting that divine inspiration results in no new real information?
