no, you just cherry-pick which part of the god trinity you follow.(only because your poorly thought out cult cannot spin away that the same god disagrees with himself...

So, you stoned your children to death when they talked back to you?

Made sure your wife never spoke out of turn or dared give you her opinion or spoke in church?

Forced rape victims to marry their rapists?

Stoned all adulterers that you know to death?(given that 25-50% of all American adults commit adultery, the chances are pretty good that you know quite a few. A few of your friends? A few family members? Maybe even you or your wife? A few church members? Your church pastor or his wife? Are they still alive? Shame on you for rejecting scripture.)

It's alot more honest than

"Pro-Choice" meaning "Pro-DEATH of unlimited babies"

all you need now is that very first shred of evidence that even suggests that maybe some intelligent creator ever existed...

until then ID is just fantasy, like your cult.

All you have to do is look in the mirror to see a person with a soul, who knows good from evil.

No other creature on earth knows good from evil.

They may know food hunting skills, mating skills and survival skills, but they will not plan out a schedule for doing good, or plan for the future and contemplate the universe like humans do.

We are a special creature with a soul and spirit...you know it but just won't admit it, sadly.

I see that you have never owned a pet.

Sensing "good and evil" is an ability that many animals have. Your problem is that you want to try to apply your definition of "good" upon other animals. It does not work that way. What is good for a wolf may not be good for a deer.

It looks like you may be another victim of home schooling.

Pets don't understand evil, they understand a threat or danger to their survival.

They have a different understanding of good and evil than you do. I am not sure even if you understand evil. What is evil?

Can you define it without getting mythological?

Please, there is nothing "Anti-God" about evolution. Unless you think that Newton's work on Gravity was "Anti-God" too.

Why do you think that evolution is "Anti-God". All it does is to describe how life got to be in the state that we see it today.
