Remember the last time the religious right in Texas tried to sneak Christian creationism into public school science classes? Well, they're back.

Have read it LOTS of times. What I KNOW is that it is a bronze age, goat herder fairy tale, made up by (mostly) illiterate and scientifically ignorant men who made up myths trying to explain things they had NO knowledge of (which explains their "cure" for leprosy).

What is REALLY depressing is that there are people like you here in the 21st century who STILL think that this bronze age, goat herder fairy tale is "literally and inerrantly true™".

Of course there is no scientific evidence for creation, it happened in the unobservable past you fool. Tell that to your evolutionist fanatics that their evolution, if it happened also happened in the past. That's why they have no evidence but lack the balls to admit it.
Honest scientists rather than being embarrassed to be creationists will tell you that no one has ever observed the evolution of any major group of animals or plants. They write that in books on creation which you have never read, lier.
You of course are the fool.

What makes you think that we cannot observe the past?

Evolution has been observed in several ways. Too bad you are a total idiot. You might understand how it has been seen.

We have observed evolution in the laboratory, in the field, in the fossil record, and in our DNA to name only a few of the places that it has been observed.

"Depressing" "Bronze age" "21st C". Is that all you can say? Exactly. It proves the point: Dumbed-down people of today can't think, they emot. All one needs to do is count the number of emotive terms - and you probably won't even know what I mean by that. Your problem.

Now, wake up & her we go. You say you've read the Bible & instead of telling us what you think about it, you say what you FEEL. I rest my case. Next idiot please.

I can't believe you think we can observe the past or may be I should seeing as to whom I'm dealing with. Oh my word!

Now, you were once born weren't you? Try observing that event or ask the scientist you worship the most to do it for you. Get the best instruments. You have my sympathy!

I'm pretty sure everyone reading this thread can see which one of us is the idiot. Further, YOUR the one who can't think beyond the "literal and inerrant" fairy tale you worship. If it ain't in the Bible it ain't true, isn't that right? No thinking required in that world view, is there? Heck, you can have the independent thinking skills of a 3 year old who believes in Santa Claus to get by in that world view.

As for saying what I "feel" about the Bible, I have already told you that I KNOW that it can not be true. The first man being magically conjured up out of a pile of dirt, the first woman being magically conjured up out of a rib ripped out of the first man, a talking snake, magic fruit that makes an eater really smart or immortal, angels and demons, giants and unicorns, satyrs and cockatrices, wizards and witches, a big global flood that killed all life on Earth except for the passengers on a big wooden barge, the sun standing still in the sky, a man living inside the stomach of a big fish, trumpets knocking down the walls of a fortified city, etc., etc., etc. are OBVIOUSLY (to rational adults, anyways) the same sorts of FAIRY TALE story elements that are found in ancient Egyptian and Greek mythology, Mother Goose tales and Harry Potter books. Anyone who objectively reads the Bible KNOWS that it's just a bronze age, goat herder fairy tale that may have some value as a theology or philosophy, but is hardly reflective of REALITY, let alone qualifies as science or history.

That's another thing you will need to repent from, reliance on psychiatric drugs to solve problems. Big Pharma sold you that one, ha ha ha - and you swallowed it with fluoride of course. The sooner you ditch this fantasy trip of the Devil's con called science, the sooner your head will clear.
Shake off your pride & go read a creation book, there are plenty good ones. You will very quickly realise that you have been had. In thinking you were wise, you were in fact foolish & suppressed the truth.

Okay, psychotic and med resistant. I hope you don't own any semi-automatic firearms.

I used to be a creationist. I got over it and learned science.

We are getting somewhere: wilful ignorance s a concept introduced by the disciple Peter. Read the rest of his Epistles & you'll see the folly of evolution was foretold before Charile Darwin who in any case didn't believe it either! Yes, Darwin didn't think much if evolution - they forgot to tell you that. I think It was Stalin who coined the term "useful idiot" & that's what today's Darwinists are.

Evolution is just one field of study in science. It uses the same methods, the same processes and is held to the same standards as any other science.

Evolution is supported by LITERALLY every major field of science from physics and astronomy on one end to psychology and sociology on the other. It has multiple lines of support from several different fields.

Most importantly it is OBSERVABLE, testable, falsifiable, repeatable and adheres to the principle of parsimony.

Evolution is both a theoretical and applied field. It has applications in medicine, virology, biology and botany to name only a few. Epidemiological research assumes evolution and does not work without it.

Magic poofing, however, has no evidence whatsoever.

Fool, people in the present do not observe the past. If grandparents observe birth of their grandchildren they can only do it as it happens ie in the present. If they miss it by a few a few minutes, they will never observe it. People do not observe the past - get it!

All observations are of the past you idiot.

Do you think light travels instantly to your eyes?

And do you think that sight is the only way that we observe things.

As I said we have observed evolution many different ways. We can't help if you are such a dolt that you cannot understand any of them.

So when you observed the T Rex, not fossils but the real T Rex, what did it look like? Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Now the penny has dropped but you are trying to be clever. It won't work. No one observed the origin of life or the alleged evolution and you know it. Deal with your pride and admit it, it won't hurt. Evolution is not science it's a religious belief

Experts can recreate what people and other animals would look like by the skeletons of the animal, why do you think that experts cannot tell what T-Rex would look like?

It seems that you are a major league idiot. You have a huge projection problem. Just because you are a fool does not mean everybody else is.

We would be more than happy to help you learn. We are also more than happy to laugh at idiots who won't learn.

Mee....personal question if you don't mind:

I see you're posting out of Orlando.
I am as well. I've been here since 1958, and was educated here from K-12, plus a couple of College degrees.

Where were you educated (Country, State, City).

Also,(again, if you don't mind my asking) Are you a Male? Female?

Just wondering whom we're replying to.

No, we do NOT observe the Civil War today.

But you did not answer my question.

Do you believe the Civil War happened?

Why?
