See how I shorten your rantings that you repeat over and over. You have no proof except your faith. Remember that God cannot grow limbs on amputees that's my proof he does not exist.
You cannot refute that ever.
Of course you shortened what I wrote , Why wouldn't you?
I challenged all of you to present the basis for your belief that intelligent Design GOD , is not the creator of life.
You dare not take up that challenge, then , as is customary with Atheists , when they are caught in a trap of their own making and cannot get out , they throw up smokscreens ,of which, you are a prime example , amputees have nothing to do with yhe topic at hand
I have stated the reasons for my faith. Said reasons , none of you have been able to challenge , only insults and smokescreens have been provided.
I stand and defend my beliefs , you Atheists are unable to express the basis for creation because it is based on nonsense ,begging for time ,unable to explain or justify it , other than nonsensible answers.
The reason I keep pounding on the subject is because you won't leave it alone.
You have no credible defense for your opinions , causing you frustration and anger and can only resort to devious methods in an effort to disclaim your foolishness.
To me, this topic is ended.
Any more excuses and attempts to distract will be as futile as all your past attempts...And ,that is all you have to offer.
I do not need to waste my time with all your foolishness.

Yea Curious! Praise Jesus you are free from this bondage, Jesus just told them as I have and you have and we are to know them by their fruits.

Now you have planted a seed of truth. It's up to them now to break free as you have and I am.

You have willingly enslaved yourself to a myth.
You have traded freedom, which you fear, for living on your knees and trying to live by the rules of a primitive, superstitious people.
You seem to need a "ruler" so that you can behave has a decent human being.

I don't. I am free to behave as my conscience dictates.
It works pretty well for me. I haven't murdered anyone, stolen things, cheated others or lied.

I would argue that you are the slave and I am the one who is free.

because they don't want their illusions destroyed.

If there was more bible study in school, perhaps more would understand allowing boys to choose to identify as a girl and use their facilities in public school is foolish.

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:
Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
Controlled Mass Media
Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders.
Corporate Power is Protected
Labor Power is Suppressed
I say this resembles the tea party republicans
Hahaha!

DOTTRINA
Fascism is therefore opposed to Socialism to which unity within the State (which amalgamates classes into a single economic and ethical reality) is unknown, and which sees in history nothing but the class struggle. Fascism is likewise opposed to trade unionism as a class weapon....
Sound like tea party republicans.
Opposed to trade unions and Socialism aka medicare,social security,welfare and obamacare.

Again you throw up smokescreens and lame excuses inorder to avoid the issue in question....Which is;
Was Life and the Universe creates by ,
1) Nothing by
2) some nonintelligent,nonliving nonconscious force or
3) or by intelligent design
I stated my case for Intelligent Design
I asked all of you to present your case and for you to try and invalidate my reasons for believing as I do.
So far , none of you have stated your case and unable to refute what I posted,have had to resort to lame excuses and smokescreens.
You just flung a few stinkbombs in order to draw attention away from your inability to address the issue at hand.
Bringing up a nonissue such as my dog , has nothing at all whatsoever with the issue in question.
You attempt to cloud the issue further by alluding to some irrelevant statement about introducing religious indictrination into public sghools Blah blah blah.....That is another of your futile efforts in order to change the topic .
The truth is that, you are all unable to submit an alternative whereby you could justify and defend how it may be possible for natural causes to create intelligent ,living conscios beings ... not to mention the universe
I claim that life was created by intelligent design and I give my reasons for my beliefs.
You all, not only are totally incapable of disputing my reasons, but are also uncapable of submitting an alternative which you could defend.
Neither excuses ,smokescreens or insults ,not by you ,Dukette or
Khatru are capable of challenging my reasons....And that is because you do not challenge what I have written , you merely insult and avoid having to deal with it.
If none of you could deal with it , then you should not have enmeshed yourselves into the conversation
You don't give any reasons for your beliefs - they are just beliefs based on your feelings, not on any real world evidence. You don't present any tangible challenges to retort, and those few you have were interpretive at best, which you opined about with extreme bias. That was pointed out. All you have are excuses,'smokescreens', insults, a nutzo conspiracy theory and some misplaced agenda against those who don't believe in mythology. You act like an empty and angry little child, sticking fingers in his ears and throwing tantrums. You even claim that I was off topic when I mentioned religion in schools...HELLO? ANYBODY HOME?
Don't blame everyone else for your own inadequacies and ill behavior.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
Ever hear about the separation of church and state? Any school which accepts federal funds in America should not even be allowed to mention religion or anything to do with religion. That's what the framers wanted:

“My own mind is my church, the world is my country, to do good is my religion”

&#8213; Thomas Paine (1737 -1809)

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding.~Thomas Jefferson~ April 11, 1823

Not at all!
Being a Jack of Many trades, I use science all the time, and the ONLY thing I want from academia is the Truth to be taught!
Not conjecture!
Not supposition!
Not ideology!
Nothing in science has been changed, and manufactured more
than the Theory of Evilution!
As the even changed the word "Theory" to mean something other
than a "Guess"!
When one looses the agenda to disprove God, and truly LOOK
at the complexity of Life, and understand that
just to assemble the proteins to make DNA is around 124^10 AGAINST
them coming about by Random chance...
It is a Scientific improbability... by sciences OWN terms!
You get a different picture... one that is more true, than
what is implied by Godless agenda!
Of course... Knowing God is real, Knowing the truth is easier!

I might also add
"godless by choice" is a choice, and Life is ONLY about choices!
I made a few bad choices in my life, but the worst was
to be Godless!

Sista meant that no one is perfect, not that the 6,000 year ago talking serpent episode was a real event.
