Way to "freethink"!

Freethinking usually involves questioning the dogma of religion.
Somehow religious nuts saying freethinking , just doesn't quite say it.

Just so you don't continue to loo absolutely stupid, here's some FACTS for ya. The Theory of Evolution is the backbone of ALL biological research. There is MORE EVIDENCE (see, when you have evidence you don't need a belief) for evolution than there is for the Theory of gravity, than for the idea that all things are made from atoms, or Einstein's theory of relativity. The theory of evolution is the finest scientific theory ever devised.

Humans existed before Jesus? Wow just wow...

Since Jesus didn't walk the earth as a man RR has admitted god can be killed on a stick. Come Armageddon all Satan needs is a stick and some nails loaded up on an iron chariot :))

No it is a description of your god.... Sad you can't put that together.

I guess that's why you dig ditches for a living.

But one with a point--sort of. EVERY idea should be subjected to scrutiny. When any are sacrosanct, dogma sets in. Neither the ToE nor the BB theories are immune to this, but that scrutiny must be motivated by logic, reason, and empiricism, not by objections based on conflicts with authority, tradition, or such other dogmas as religious tenets. The latter is the reason that theists' attacks on science fail every time.

I agree completely.

But we have been going around in circles here for a long time.

Many theists are doing the science every day.

Atheists and materialists who operate most of science are capable of utilizing dogma every bit as much as theists.

It occasionally results in firings and lawsuits.

Not to mention falsification of data.

Thank you

Very closed-minded for a "freethinker".
Typical.
Because you don't know, "made in His image" is not referring to physical appearance...
Dodging will not avoid what was stated, your god has magical powers, therefore, your god is a wizard.

jesus wasn't a person so we shouldn't get bent out of shape about the crucifixion.

Maybe it was just a role playing game that went wrong.

His death, as a man, is fairly pivotal to the belief.

God can do pretty much whatever He wants to do, including allowing folks to think He died.

Try freethinking a little harder.
