But I don't support Creationism, and make no arguments or assertions.
I am merely tired of so much time being wasted on flat-earth theories like evolution.
Get over it, and move on.
Yet here you are not getting over it and not moving on.

nah, just that after heavy dining, as the clergy did, feeling of compressed long-space, when lying down.
But they nowadays still do exorcisms, and explain the physiological phenomena still in that way...if you are a man.

I have 4 archaeologists in my family and none of them make that claim?
Lack of proof is no proof. You should know this.
Lack of evidence is a logical and valid reason to dismiss the claim. The Exodus myth has no evidence, therefore it is dismissed as myth, otherwise leprechauns are also real, there is no evidence that they are not real.

Move on to what? You're rejecting creationism. You're rejecting evolution. So what comes next?

Or are you here merely to criticize and offer nothing?

The official response is that homosexuality is unnatural and disordered, and the resurrected body would suffer no such imperfections or disorders. But then again, the official response is that making no attempt to restrain homosexual desire means you won't get to heaven in the first place.

Where do you get that indeed. The same place where they dish out the prejudice. Are all homosexuals temple-protitutes? No, well than the BS is all yours.

So if they straighten their act a bit to order, officials would have less trouble with it.
The resurrected body can't suffer the touch of the now ordered cloths by the imperfect women.
(The bible says so)
So to test the vigor of his resurrected state against male avances he went to see his mates, and opening his ordered raincoat stated: "guy's it is me, my body in resurrected state."
(The bible does not say so)
Then he ate some fish and walked away. Quite pleased with himself.

Everything else must be catatonic religion.

I love this argument. As if no scientists would want to overturn evolution, become world famous and claim his or her $1,000,000+ Nobel Award.

Conclude that they are in entirely different fields of archeology?
That he never asked? Nor that they offered?
That 4 is not exactly representative nor peer-reviewed...
Though they can always check each other.

Every single bit of evidence supports evolution. Every single bit.
There has not been even one piece of evidence refuting evolution. NOT ONE.
You are blinded by your fear of death. Without your belief in god, your life has no meaning, so you lie to yourself even in the face of overwhelming evidence.
Someday you may grow up and realize that evolution says absolutely nothing about the existence or nonexistence of any god. It is your juvenile and literal interpretation of the bible, an ancient text written by ignorant men, that forces you to reject established fact lest your whole belief system crumbles into dust.
The vast majority of christians have finally come out of their bible induced fog and accepted that evolution is fact. You are in an ever shrinking minority of willfully ignorant believers who cannot adapt to modern knowledge and you will be-you ARE being-pushed further and further to the outermost fringes of civilization.
It's the 21st century, for god's sake. Get with the program or get left out.
It's really up to you. You are clinging to a rapidly sinking ship with lifeboats all around you.
Notice the judging.
An earnest tone and a serious content, without flaming whatsoever, really get's to them.

You can call'm f.i. festering scrophulous resurrected fishfungus of a dickwad candysucker....and you get a smilie. ;?))

And they go all conversationaly on you. Must be god-speek.

Yahoo, the site you listed forgot that there are two driving forces to evolution. Variation, of which mutation is only part, and natural selection. The writer of your article forgot about natural selection which cleans up the harmful mutations from the genome. Animals with harmful mutations are less likely survive, much less breed, which is what they would have to do to pass on their harmful mutations.
That looks like it might be the work of John Sanford. A creationist who's idea was almost instantaneously debunked.
Actually, if you roam the entire site, there's some interesting tidbits there:

"When I headed off to college (in 1949), I wrote an essay speculating on the possibility that some day we would be able to create a living organism from nonliving ingredients. By the time I finished my formal studies in biology having learned of the incredible complexity of even the simplest organism I concluded that such a feat could never be accomplished.

Now I'm not so sure.

Several recent advances suggest that we may be getting close to creating life."

"Only the Real God is the Real Scientist"<quoted text>
Why do you say this?
I say this because God encoded DNA for all intelligent life in his lab, the planets in the universe, where elements were also created. He's not only a Scientist but also a Mathematician, Artist, Architect, and all that.

You are right, atheistic evolution hinders the progress of real science because life could not have started by natural processes on its own. They believe in MUTATION. I believe in PERMUTATION.

I also think there is intelligent life in other planets or galaxies.

I sort of half watched a horizon program about 6 months ago and it was suggested that true life from non living chemical ingredients is predicted within 10 to 12 years. Unfortunately I cant remember the name of the program so I need to wait for the repeat.

Artificial, self replicating life has been created in the laboratory

I also heard similar artificial molecules have been seen to evolve
