AND it's YOUR turn!!

I'll tell you my first angle! Here it is: Are you Gay?

About 1 out of 2 posters on an Evolution forum who take the Evolution point of view are playing the gay angle. They don't want to SAY they're gay, but the love to ask offensive questions and make people uncomfortable. Some don't want to admit they're gay, some aren't but like to get all "downtown" with the bros. When it comes down to it, it's an inevitable "you're either with us or against us" political tactic and NOW you'll have to pay the price!

OK,the clock is ticking. Post #1 and all I'm asking for is a simple YES or NO response. No secret codes, innuendo or gang signs. Just answer the question.

No I'm not attacking knowledge. I was actually trying to get at something here. Let me give you an example.
Atoms contain sub-particles that has kinetic energy. This energy is what holds the sub-atomic particles together. An atom of a tree builds up when its atoms binds with other atoms and form molecules that synthesizes. The tree life begins as it starts to grow. We cut the trunks to make wood. Did we kill the tree and ended its life? Yes and no. A wood doesn't have life but it once did before we utilized it for something else. But the wood still has the same properties and physical make up - the same molecules and atoms. It's just in another form. Everything in the universe is recycled.
If we define life beyond what we know in biology, we will understand how life came from non-life. The fact that energy has always existed, that is seeded in particles (the nucleus of an atom has nuclear energy), is proof that life started from the simplest form of matter.
Trees have also came in variety from the beginning and they are among the oldest living things.

Really? You can say this because you know what is in my mind and what is in the mind of others? You LIE! Lying is a sin.

Four of my best friends growing up were the sons of ministers. Three of them were the sons of the minister of the church I went to. Those friendships have endured and I don't think they are crazy. You on the other hand are a convert and I have my doubts about you. But I don't take either case and then build a lie by making sweeping statements about a whold group of people. Based on some of the posters on here that claim Christianity, it would be easy to do too.

The only truth that seems to prevail is that you and many of your fellow Christian posters don't know much about science, have what appears to be a lot of hate, want to force others to believe the way you do and don't seem to be very nice people.

By the way, what is up with your fascination with sex and what others are doing in bed?

What is your point and why does the longevity of trees play into it?

Instead of making repeatedly idiotic statements why don't you try to debate the facts sometime?

Systems created reproduction after the kind in living things. Living things are patterned after their own kind. Repeating cyclic mechanisms such as pumping elements are responsible for maintaining life. All living things have pumps. Life unfolds following seedlike patterns of former things. Life did not branch out and become a varity from a common thing, it began in varity and then reproduced after certain kinds. Systems which cycle following patterns, is the way life works and the timing and pace of these systems was in the self adjusting patterned arrangement from the beginning and Creation of life on earth.
I wrote something on my journal that is similar to what you're describing. I'm describing it as an artist's point of view:

The Art of Being

It was the beginning and the point of an isolated beam. It became a mark that spawned an imagination for life. It traveled and grew to become a vast area capable of sustaining the most fragile of nature yet palpable by design. An extension of illuminated beings. The bud of life began to unravel its core - the mind that is created in synchronized rhythm that which is life, and made known. An existence once more.

The Art of Structure

Seedlings began to sprout extended like strings that attached to one another, making all possible combinations. It became the blueprint for a system as the attachments were made firm and intact. Multiple systems replicated and adjoined in harmony creating each of its vibrations.

The Art Form

The vibrations of life filled the space in free and orderly movements. And each system was given a form, and the form had function. Tapping once, twice, and many more until the form created a pattern. The patterns became a cycle in a system. Thus, the cycle of life.

People are free to do as they will and I am not the judge in the end, but I know who is and his word on this subject can be found in the Holy Bible.

Some opposite-sex couples cannot produce children, or they choose not to. Does that mean that they are engaged in perversion?

There is only one way to have sex and not sin. The marriage bed is the only place that is not unclean or dirty and defiled in the sight of God.
So you're saying that it's wrong for a married couple to have sex in the back seat of a car? Or in their living room?

Something doesn't have to be mentioned in the U.S. Constitution in order to be a right. And the U.S. Supreme Court has already declared marriage to be a right.

Only if heterosexuality is also described as a medical condition.

There would be great debate as to whether or not homosexuals are capable of assuming proper parental roles, but in the current state of debate, liberals would generate bogus statistics anyway.
In other words, because of your homophobia, you automatically reject any scientific study that shows that children raised by same-sex parents turn out just as well as those raised by opposite-sex parents.

In both cases, these are litmus test issues where those disloyal to a party are forced into a financially punitive lifestyle, either by raising children they can't afford, or by heaping further financial burdens on the unmarried through unfairly taxing the minority to the benefit of the majority.
And the unmarried are "unfairly taxed" in what way?

And while we're at it, what do you think about the *topic* of this thread? Or are you just here to spout off your homophobia?
