<quoted text>Thank you for not addressing a single point of my post. Your long winded excuse for not answering is very smithvillian of you. You have about as many points as a roll of toilet paper. Wanna address how you can't defend your inability to provide a violation to the Law of Biogenesis? I have no idea if you are an atheist or not. But if you reject a creator, how do you justify believing a false theory that from the beginning demands a violation of a known scientific law, in which you can't provide this violation? Ok...feel free to reply on how I hate birds....or something....

I refuted you chapter and verse, as always. You can squirm while I destroy you again and again. Your notions of arcane.

You have identified evidence that humans are related to chimps. We could be related by design, couldn't we?
Sure. Just like we could have been created this way by the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Equally as plausible.

But go take it up with Markie, he has serious issues with God using evolution, even though it's essential for fundamentalist Christian theology either way.

In the beginning there was nothing .Then nothing exploded ( the “big bang”) then some nothings got together and became something.

Millions of years passed. As the gaseous remains of the “big bang” spread out some of it became galaxies, stars, and planets.

Millions of years passed. On one of the planets acquired water.

Millions of years passed. Some rocks and minerals dissolved into puddles becoming the primordial soup.

Millions of years passed. Something in the soup just came to life.

Millions of years passed. This “life” just became more complex and mutated and mutated.

Millions of years passed. This is where ALL life comes from!

Talk about a fairytale.

We were created to adapt to the changing world to insure our survival. Evolution is used as the mechanism that has been and forever will change the designs of all living creatures.

My facts are facts. Read the Bible or a science book.


It is your opinion that is dataless. You have no grasp of science which makes teaching you science impossible. Even the desire to learn is missing in favor of your deluded self beliefs which are not grounded in reality.

What's not plausible about design? If you allow for God why won't you allow God to design?

It's not me who believes in magic poofing buoyancy, wherein rising of the object occurs without anything pushing under it to raise it.

LOL. You still crying about losing that argument? Next time try to have a point rather than just playing pretend.

God can design his little heart out. But when the evidence is for natural causes and not magic poofing we got to go with that.

The same evidence is for design. I know that multiple explanations fitting the same evidence has been an extremely hard concept for your side to grasp, but perhaps some day you will come to recognize/acknowledge that reality. BTW, why do you invoke magic poofing with regard to buoyancy?

You better stop making fun of Smithville.

You made a statement more than once, that biblical events such as Noah's flood, a geocentric universe and a flat earth were supernatural. Just because I can't find all the specific posts doesn't mean you didn't post it. You did.

I did a quick search and found this one dipwad. Deny this. It is post 1061 of this thread. You were responding to Bob of Quantum Faith and his list of biblical items refuted by science. You called them supernatural then and on other occasions. You don't really know what you are talking about most of the time. I am not surprised you don't remember anything you post.

Some of this can be considered supernatural events, but some are supposed to be real events.

Here is Bob's post you responded to.

There is no evidence for design. What you are referring to is your efforts to desperately misconstrue and manipulate the evidence and make it conform to your predetermined beliefs. That is what you do and it is recognized. Many have told you this.

It isn't anyone's fault but your own that you deny physics because it doesn't support your wild ass claims.

Your ignorance of science is showing again. Please read some material on the scientific method.

You lost the buoyancy debate. You want to get beaten up again?

Nothing (extra) needs to push up from the bottom. If I attach a string to a cube on the bottom of a tank of water and pull it up is THAT magic poofing? You play simple word games that no one else cares to play. You are FORCED to do that because you don't know the science and want to live in a denialistic universe. That is fine for you, but don't try to drag us down the rabbit hole.

Untill you understand the scientific method you can make believe whatever you like, but the constraints of the method leave you out in the cold. You simply cannot make predictions off of magic poofing.

Simple, eh?
