Did we have gay dinosaurs?

We best leave these theological issues to Charles.

Well put, though I disagree with your assertion that every Christian is a criminal...etc.

I think you know that that's not true and I know I hate it when christians say that all atheists are immoral, hateful, angry, etc.

I try to apply the golden rule better than christians do.

It's usually not all that difficult.

Funny aside.

When I grew up, the golden rule was "Treat others the way they treat you".

I was like, "Ok. Cool."

It wasn't until my later years that it morphed to "Treat others as you'd like to be treated".

Somebody finally figured it out. Still doesn't seem to work that way here, though.

Unless, of course, christians here WANT to be treated like fools.

Ok.

I guess that wasn't THAT funny.

Aren't you confusing hinduism or even the orrible Brahmism with buddhism?
Apropos the bhagavat gita was probably written 150 CE, since that is the time the immigrated (~150 BC) arian (small province in ancient Iran) cow- and horseherds adapted an Indian language to write sanskrit. And then killed the buddhist and created an ancient history for themseves.

Believe...attributions: the truth, what one loves, what one cherishes.
God is real: is giving it a value.
And then we see another set of attributions.
Believe is not based on general concepts, or material knowledge. Some people believe in the devil, a little purple stone, magic.
And they could make the same claims you made, saying it is their believe, god...etc.
We are strugging for pages now , getting you to understand that believe is nothing but the few ideas you dress it up with.
Mind i'm not saying it is meaningless. But to each it's own.
But science can be counted upon.
In summary, science can not answer everything.

Even if that be the case...I fail to see how anyone could consider the process from goo, to complexity of life on earth as a un-intelligence process...it's completely irrational.

Science can not correct your statements. It strives.;p
There are a lot of theories, but suppose we figure it out, uh science figures it out, then you will still owe us the answers to the theological questions about the dinosaurs!

Like I said before...pretty much all core religious beliefs are based on the recognition of the the intrinsic obvious intelligent processes that are plainly recognizable all around us...

Science fails to directly address these processes...by simply calling them "natural"?...why?

We had troll's owning gay dinosours?
How do you know that?
And how do you know that was dumb?
Where was that written that dumb get's you a gay religious dino?

Oops sorry, that were three-in-one theological questions Charles still had to answer.

I suppose the troll's went along as ballast stones on the ark.

But the creation museum has dinosaurs!

"The term "Planet X" refers to the search for another planet beyond Pluto through mainstream scientific efforts. The space probes sent out by NASA, mainly Voyager, and Pioneer, detected perturbations in the outer planets which suggested that there is still another planet, or heavenly body beyond Pluto that is affecting the orbits of the outer planets. Some of the latest public knowledge about this research done by NASA was conducted by Dr. Robert Harrington, who was the lead astronomer at NASA's Naval Observatory in Washington.(now deceased)

The Planet X searched for by astronomers during the last two or three decades is the planet that was believed to be affecting the orbit of Neptune - once the effects of Uranus on Neptune had been taken into account. Lowell and several other astronomers made extensive searches and calculations in the region of sky that they had calculated as the position for the missing planet.

Then, Sept 30, 1846 --- one week after the discovery of Neptune, Le Verrier declared that there may be still another unknown planet out there. On October 10, Neptune's large moon Triton was discovered, which yielded an easy way to accurately determine the mass of Neptune, which turned out to be 2% larger than expected from the perturbations upon Uranus. Finally, astronomer Tombaugh found Pluto in 1930 - albeit six degrees away from the calculated point of their search for another planet beyond Neptune at that time.

It was quickly realized that Pluto was too small to have the supposed gravitational effect on Neptune, and so the search went on beyond Pluto, for yet one more missing planet, that we know call Planet X."

Yes.
Frankly we have it pretty much all figured out.
Just haven't gotten to the point of summarizing it all.
(It involves a lot of scrolling over various lines, for the peer-reviewed science publications)
But the more you know, the more questions you end up having.
So at a certain point you have to decide when enough is enough.

But if meteorites and other space goo can do it then why should earth-goo not be able to do it!
The latter would be the underying assumption of your theory.
So you would have to proof that there is something so particular about earth that life could not have formed.
