So you think there were flocks of wild Chickens roaming the mountains right behind those wild herds of Herefords and people just built coops and they came a running... Don't need to be there when there is ample Evidence of the domestication of wild animals and their selective breeding into the animals we take for granted today like cats and dogs... So I don't need to be there to form a rational, logical explanation as to the conversion of wild game by man to a Chicken... Before someone called it a chicken it would have not made much sense to have a chicken egg now would it... If what it was before we called it a chicken was a Grouse it would lay Grouse Eggs... See where I'm going with this....
Yes Indeed , I see where you been and where you are going.
From Disneys Magic Kingdom you are heading toward Ron Serlings Twilight Zone where you will mingle with Sciemce Fiction enthusiasts.
You keep traveling backwards till you get to the first egg that came into being .
I am sure you will have quite an explanation for that.
After you get through with that explanation , if I haven't busted my gut laughing , I will fill you in with the real facts.
See where I'm gboing with this..... LOL

Since it IS Sunday...
5 My son, pay attention to my wisdom,
turn your ear to my words of insight,
2 that you may maintain discretion
and your lips may preserve knowledge.
3 For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil;
4 but in the end she is bitter as gall,
sharp as a double-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death;
her steps lead straight to the grave.
6 She gives no thought to the way of life;
her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.
7 Now then, my sons, listen to me;
do not turn aside from what I say.
8 Keep to a path far from her,
do not go near the door of her house,
9 lest you lose your honor to others
and your dignity[f] to one who is cruel,
10 lest strangers feast on your wealth
and your toil enrich the house of another.
11 At the end of your life you will groan,
when your flesh and body are spent.
12 You will say,“How I hated discipline!
How my heart spurned correction!
13 I would not obey my teachers
or turn my ear to my instructors.
14 And I was soon in serious trouble
in the assembly of God’s people.”
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
running water from your own well.
16 Should your springs overflow in the streets,
your streams of water in the public squares?
17 Let them be yours alone,
never to be shared with strangers.
18 May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
20 Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife?
Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?
21 For your ways are in full view of the Lord,
and he examines all your paths.
22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
the cords of their sins hold them fast.
23 For lack of discipline they will die,
Amen.
Yada yada don't be an adulterer... How many Christians have divorced and remarried and where is the passage that says Jesus went to church on Sunday?

No. I don't see where you are going with this, but I can guess your "real facts" are the same old mumbo-jumbo about the Earth and all living things being created in 6 days.

The only person showing their ignorance here is you,,, your lack of reading comprehension, your inability to use the dictionary, and your constant misuse of words and their meanings. Last, but not least, your incessant, non stop whining , babbling and baby talk!

You can't even come up with anything original...so you have to squawk and repeat what otehrs say.
EVERYONE IS entitled to THEIR opinions- so am I, and so are Christians!
And my opinion of your paltry is opinion is that is contains absolutely ZERO fact, and consists of nothing but one big blowbag stream of LIES of the deluded, twisted, distorted and psychoTic type.
And If you had one shred of logical or ethical ability in you, you'd've already realized from reading the article-
Speaking abuot the Bible in public schools is ALREADY LEGAL...no matter how much you "HATE" that.
So in ESSENCE, LAW makers were just refining (via implementing GUIDELINES and REGULATIONS) the sanctity of freedom of (including from) religion even MORE, so that people can NOT ABUSE anyone else's freedoms OF personal choices!
But obviously, you were just too damn stupid to realize that.
Too bad for you, that joke flew right over your clueless empty head, illiterate idiot.
Everyone is in agreement when it comes to your ignorance, therefore originality is out of the question.
Thank you for confirming with your second sentence Your Lack of Reading Comprehension. Where I stated everyone is entitled to their opinion! See where reading comprehension is pretty darn important!
Your third paragraph; first sentence again confirms your Constant misuse of words and their meanings!

For the rest of your comment, nothing but bobble heading to hear that pea rattle around in all the empty space between your ears!

Your last sentence..... What the hell you trying to say here? Joke..... What Joke?

In Conclusion.... Your Post ended up proving everything I stated about you in my comment! You are the illiterate I D I O T .

Laughing .. word of advice... When debating any subject, Make sure Sista is on the Opposing Team, You will then claim Victory!!

You are a troll, who wants nothing but an argument, you have no proof of anything you say, and when you do... you get it wrong, i.e. The debate over the condom and it's effectiveness, that I had to school you on. You really made of fool of yourself with that one!

This is my original Post above^^^

Another word of Advice.... When trying to make the other person foolish, be sure to proof-read Your re-make of their original comment, i.e... In your copy-paste (that I had to have you school me you on.)> WTH? Thanks for proving you are the "double loser"

I have NEVER, EVER seen a teacher Force their religious beliefs on anyone--not in FIFTY plus years.
EVER..
That's why generally teachers are TEACHERS, NOT Preachers- and not narrow minded, heads stuck in the sand, clueless NON wonders, most having FAR, far more SENSE, than THAT ridiculous bullchit.
GET A CLUE.
This is the 21st century-NOT the 18th dark ages!

Really! Perhaps you should do more research b4 making yourself out to be the Fool..... 2 examples 1 - In the beginning of 2006, an engineering professor at Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois, told his class that the Holocaust was a hoax and never happened. His statement received national media coverage and the president of Northwestern had to issue a public apology claiming that the beliefs did not represent those of the university. 2 - Another dilemma occurred when a public high school teacher in New Jersey continued to veer off into tangents during his lectures that pertained to his religious beliefs. The only reason he was exposed to the public was when a student tape-recorded him and brought it to officials. These are 2 examples that received Media Attention, there are countless others that happen every day that go unnoticed! NOW.... How about YOU get a Phucking Clue!!!

Mark a nice big, red X on the world maps, in honor of the new nation of ThugsandPalsistania, and let them battle themselves into oblivion.
And just who must "let" this happen? Maybe give a suggestion that is plausible next time.

You almost sound as if you support secularism. Try it in your own back yard, then tell others how to do it.

INCOMPLETE, Flawed theory.
Does NOT validated, or even really give explanation for that matter, on the actual beginnings of the "origins of life".
Evolution is not supposed to give the origins of life. So again you mix up the science.
Science is always incomplete. Come back when you understand this most basic, elementary understanding of science.
Is it flawed? Well nothing is perfect, so I am not sure what problem you have with it. But evidently you think it is the study of the origin of life, so you are so far off base with what the science is, I could not begin to speculate the objections you have in mind.

Jehovah’s Witnesses—Who Are We?
We come from hundreds of ethnic and language backgrounds, yet we are united by common goals. Above all, we want to honor Jehovah, the God of the Bible and the Creator of all things. We do our best to imitate Jesus Christ and are proud to be called Christians. Each of us regularly spends time helping people learn about the Bible and God’s Kingdom. Because we witness, or talk, about Jehovah God and his Kingdom, we are known as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
So you go to temples and turn over tables?

Maybe you have never heard of secularism. It is not always about hurt, but more about religious freedom. Try it in your own backyard.

I can not grasp what you said because you have said nothing that I could hear. I have read what you have WRITTEN ,which according to you , I should consider as " the pitiful writings of men"
Your explanation about the chicken should be featured on a comedy show.
You are alluding to an unwitnessed event that no one knows took place ,where it took place or when it took place.
other than , according to you "Chicken and Chicken Egg occurred at the exact same instant when the first person Name the foul he converted"
But I could be wrong ,, Were you there ? or did someone tell you about it? If so ,was it hundreds of years after this event took place?
You know where I am going with that ...I will go no further.
LOL
Ever heard of a detective that could solve UN-witnessed crimes by putting evidence together?

Yes ,Sir Isaac Newton dealt with those issues ,way back when;
Isaac Newton
In a paper of a few pages, entitled A Short Scheme of the True Religion he discusses Godliness, Atheism, Idolatry and Humanity, or our duty to man. Relevant to Creation he wrote:
... Can it be by accident that all birds, beasts, and men have their right side and left side alike shaped,(except in their bowels,) and just two eyes, and no more, on either side of the face; and just two ears on either side of the head, and a nose with two holes; and either two fore- legs, or two wings, or two arms on the shoulders, and two legs on the hips, and no more? Whence arises this uniformity in all their outward shapes but from the counsel and contrivances of an Author? Whence is it that the eyes of all sorts of living creatures are transparent to the very bottom, and the only transparent members in the body, having on the outside a hard transparent skin, and within transparent humours, with a crystalline lens in the middle, and a pupil before the lens, all of them so finely shaped and fitted for vision, that no artist can mend them? Did blind chance know that there was light, and what was its refraction, and fit the eyes of all creatures, after the most curious manner, to make use of it? These, and suchlike considerations, always have, and ever will prevail with mankind, to believe that there is a Being who made all things, and has all things in his power, and who is therefore to be feared.
BTW You need to keep taking that Outsiders test till you get it right. Which will be never...
Try the God test...If you diligently seek me , you will find me.
You need only take it once ,,,,Given you accurately follow the instructions....
Well Sir Isaac Newton lived before the theory of evolution. But I see you assume he knew all.

Evolution is not exactly "blind chance".
The eye, and its evolution has been shown to have evolved bit by bit. Its complexity is reducible. The light of the sun can be felt by nerves, even without an eye that focuses upon it. But as this slow eventual focusing group of cells gather, it eventually becomes a spot. We can see this spot in some animals, many worms, today. All building points of the eye can be seen in some animal today. And not all eyes evolved the same. Humans are a bit backwards, this is why we have much poorer vision than many other animals.

Now the creationists will still insist the eye is irreducibly complex, but this is only a lie, or ignorance. The steps can be shown clearly if only one looks at the actual science.

This argument was used in the court case for ID. And the science was so sound, it nailed the coffin for ID in the public classroom in this case.

Newton broke some ground for science. It was the beginning of a new movement for science. It was far from the last word on science.
