Good for you. Seriously.
Now, what value does ID present?
A better understanding of the origins and evolution of all life.

Is that important?

If you think prosperity results from giving more to the government, you are free to give them everything you have.
Go ahead. Show us your faith.
I think it is more prosperous for money to be utilized in the private sector with its multiplier effect.
Ask a poor person to create a job for you.
So, more logical fallacies. Can you create a post without them? Show where I made any of the assertions you claim I made here. None of those things you assert are the opposite of trickle down which is demonstrably ineffective.

Getting money into the hands of the middle class stimulates the environment, but your "job creators" are ensuring that no longer happens by opposing every economic reform that made that possible.

You're living a lie, nitwit. Every assertion you make, on every topic on Topix, is without evidence.

If we're to assume that life was the work of an intelligent being and not a natural process, how would we research that?

ID is the pursuit of valid science. It rises or falls on the science.
Nobody should be against that.
Incidentally, the largest creationist organizations vehemently oppose ID.

And the evidence we gather is the evidence we can detect from natural processes.

How would ID based research into the origins of life differ from the natural processes based research?

I gave you the Amplified version three times already. It's easy to understand what the scripture means.
Please delineate how that version is a more accurate translation from the oldest texts than all the other versions. I.e., what is the veracity of that particular version?

What is at the core of real marriage ...Is , it that you want the very best for your spouse ..
.......( I realize this is purely ...theistic ).....
This means the very best , you could hope to do for your spouse ..is , the salvation of their souls ..
Men and Women ...are created for each other ...this , is just plain to see ...
and , finally ....yes , I do have a sister .....and , shes all yours ...I'm driving her to the bus station ..right now ...!!
I see. So heterosexuals who can't or don't want to have children should not marry?

Thanks for offering me your sister as if she were an object to be disposed of BTW. I'm sure she'd appreciate that.

Climate change" is only the term the enviro-nazis opted for after "global warming" because everyone discovered they were lying and there is no global warming.

With the new improved made-up term, they cannot be proven wrong because the climate is always changing.

The whole thing is a fucking hoax to steal your money. Word to the wise.
Geesh, you're not very smart! Hoax...Really?
No one (with intelligence and knowledge of climate change) denies the Earth is getting warmer! The ONLY dispute is if it's caused by man...and it's natural. It's a FACT! The Earth...as a whole...including the ocean is warming at an astounding rate. That's why thousand year old permafrost is melting. YOU CAN'T DENY THAT...because it's proven fact...by scientists, and now even republicans agree. It doesn't mean it won't be colder in other spots...we are talking about earth temp as a whole. That's why we are having more severe weather, more often.
NO one denies the Earth is warming, except extremely misinformed uneducated people.
AGAIN, the only dispute is whether its man made or not.
The Earth is warming, the reason they changed the name is because they realized that WARMING was causing severe weather, and changing climates. How can you be alive on Earth and not see this with your own eyes, and your own research.
It's like you're wearing a tin foil hat. You're probably a conspiracy theorist, lol

The earth is not getting warmer. Even the global warming alarmists concede that.

Over the last 15 years, global temperatures have fallen.
