Last, but not least, one should note the hundreds of miracles contained within the Bible. Perhaps more than anything else they prove the Book lacks scientific validity. Miracles, by definition, have supernatural causes, and science, by definition, doesn't work with the supernatural. In order to avoid an extended discussion as to the existence of miracles, I will simply say that nearly all reputable scientists deny their existence and feel all events have a natural, material cause. Believers in miracles can never produce a supernatural event when asked to do so. Challenges are invariably left unanswered.
Any book claiming a woman turned into a pillar of salt (Gen. 19:26), the sun went backward 10 degrees on the sundial (2 Kings 20:11), and quails came from the sea (Num. 11:31) is going to have great difficulty demonstrating its scientific precision to any reasonably scientific mind.
Sorry, I know this is really just humour but I thought it was somewhat relevant to what you were saying too.

<quoted text> So please tell us why did that puddle of crud all of a sudden develop life? and since we didn't evolve from apes now, what is the latest fairy tale?
The only fairy tales are the ones your mother told you about Jesus and God. You really think you know something but all of your messages are posted from ignorance and you distort everything about Science either from ignorance or on purpose to be insulting. Either way you are full of it for doing so.

Life has always existed in the Universe. When a biosphere is formed around a rocky world everything needed for life is brought here and immediately begins to evolve and at some point human life arises. There is no need of any God to explain any of this. From the very first few moments of what we call the Big Band the possibility for a neomammalian complex (neocortex) existed. Human evolution as we know it has been a possibility since the Universe began. The Universe needs beings with a neocortex because those of us with one,[Christians do not seem to have one] are capable of transforming minerals into conscious thought and that is a fuel for maintaining the Universe. Evolved Human beings [and again I exclude Christians] provide this "fuel" whether they like it or not. Participating in what the Universe is doing is not a right or a guarantee for a human being however it is a possibility for one who has participated in his own psychological evolution.

Drink the Draino. Drink the Draino. When you drink the Draino you will have proven to us that you believe and trust the Bible, until then you are just so much blah blah blah.

Itís quite interesting Reverend Alan that you believe religious people should not inflict their morals on others,
You have no right to tell me or anyone how I or they should live our lives. That you assume you know what is best for us is to own our lives. You do not own me and you have no right to tell me how to live my life.

My defending my life you call imposing restrictions on your freedom, since you are that stupid there is not much that can be done for you.

You do not have the freedom to force your stupidity down my throat and I have every right to stop you by any and all means.

You pew warmers are really twisted in your "reality".

I get no disability check. I am not on the Obama plan. I earned every dime.

How much did you make last year? How much taxes did you pay on it? Tell the truth now. You are righteous and tell the truth and I am not, right?

Reverend Alan- Before you go to sleep tonight, look into the mirror. Look deep into the irises of your eyes. And what will you find?
The creature that haunts and torments you every night.
Jesus Christ is your only hope for liberation from the Evil One.
Have you read anything I have posted? Please try and read this:

Mark 16:17-18, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lays hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

NEW RULE: After you drink a quart of Draino, then and only then can you tell me about Jesus.

The notion that someone with an opinion different from yours is not worthy of respect is an ad hominem and a fallacy. It suggests that you have no better argument.
LOL, you KNOW that I have a better argument but then that is all you are about is arguing.

[translation provided by His Holiness Reverend Alan]
TRANSLATION: Better to be told now that you are wrong than to find out when it is too late. You should be pleased that Christians care enough for your eternal welfare that they are willing to risk your ire to tell you what you need to know to escape your Creator's judgment

As a Christian I do not hate being told I am wrong (atheists do it frequently and often quite rudely). I just feel sorry for those who are so wayward as to think that the universe and life 'just happened' with no sufficient cause and that we invented God rather than the other way around.

Never done that.
I simply point out that at it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Making ss couples a defect failure of mating behavior.
Moreover, children prefer mom and dad.
Not to mention that anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.
Smile.
And same-sex marriage is sweeping the nation! HAH!!
