So which came first, The Egg... The egg was a method a organism developed 100's of millions of years ago to deal with environmental conditions and one of those organisms, after 100's of millions of years, became a bird... Then after several 1000 years of Human Breeding some of those birds became Chickens as man acted as a natural selector....
Thank you for your logical presentation of things as you perceive them. I actually find that a bit easier to rationalize, being as I tend to believe we probably crawled out of Tethys and onto Pangea to start with.

Not to be confused of course, with things that transpired along the evolutionary pathways, a few mil years later!

Mess mess mess lol

You are correct. You have the right to pray your eyes out in a public school. And there's nothing I can do about it (other than mock you).
But, the school itself cannot lead a prayer and ostensibly force students into praying. Big difference.
Excuse me, did you say something non-redundant? I missed it as I was engaging in a momentary meditative personal thought choice moment, also known as silence.

I thought you were going to work on being a better human - you know, stop lying and stuff. I know old habits are hard to break, but you could at least TRY...
Hey,We are talking comedy,I remember the Great Carnac...
Carm had nothing to do with it,,,,
I think you are confused.
If by Carm,you mean Carmine,then you are alluding to a totally different comedy series,,,,Laverne And Shirley..

No, by CARM I was referring to another comedy of the absurd team, the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry.

There is much I may not understand,but,I am quite able to identify nonsense when I read it.
And how do you make that distinction? How can you read something, not comprehend it, and then make the judgment that it is "nonsense" vs not "nonsense"?

Wouldn't, by definition, everything that you not understand be "nonsense"?

Make good use of those moments of introspection to make up your mind, woman. Either you want me to mow the lawn or you don't.

Read a bit more and get back to me after you find out that Pangaea was not the first dry lands and that other continental alinements predated the Pangaea period with their own evolutionary species....

That is obviously true, but since what he faithfully believes to be comprehensible is emotional, fantastical, illogical and nonsensical, he understands himself to be well qualified to discern it as false.

Well, I suppose one might put it that way. It does make an interesting euphemism.

Uh, huh. Reminds you of a 7th grade retort, doesn't it? The typical tea partier I've come across thinks atheists are all uncouth and despicable "libertards." Go figure.

There's been PLENTY of archeological evidences that attest to varying aspects of the CULTURES of the times the Bible was written of and about. The BOOK itself is actually one, just the same as would be with something like Mark Twains Tom Sawyer books being written with some of the CULTURAL aspects apparent of the times it was penned in.
Even today-aspects of the same cultural beliefs, traditions and practices still exist, and just because people not might always agree on them, or practice them all the same themselves, does NOT mean that they do NOT exist. Do you need the book to smack you in the head or something to "GET IT"?
What part of that REALITY is so hard to grasp, the world is FULL of DIFFERENT cultures AND beliefs-even two thousand years ago, when Christianity was basically considered a subversive practice, a duck among geese, its existances of customs, often forced into secret places (of which there is MUCH much evidence-SEE:
Goreme Open Air Museum: cave churches with frescoes
Zelve Open Air Museum: an empty cave town with churches
Kaymakli Underground City: the largest underground city
Derinkuyu Underground City: the deepest underground city
Ihlara Valley: the deepest gorge of Anatolia
Uchisar: Roman rock-cut castle
Ortahisar: Roman rock-cut castle
Avanos: center of pottery since the Hittites
Pasabag: mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys, monks valley
Devrent: animal-shaped fairy chimneys, imagination valley
Hacibektas: center of Bektasi sect of Islam
Gulsehir: first settlements in Cappadocia
Forgotten Cave Churches: churches located in the valleys
Caravanserais: 13th century hotels on the silk road)
Why do people like you insist on denying the REALITIES of such? Just because you don't like it or agree with it???
SORRY. That is NOT reality. And that is NOT how AMERICA works either-like it or not!!!!
Yes the bible is much like the fiction books if Twain. They are both fiction. Yes, both have some real places in them, but the events are made up. There maybe a bit of truth in them, like the knowledge of cultures. But does that mean the culture was based upon good things or real gods?
