<quoted text>I just quoted from Eugenie Scotts book where the origin of life is also a part of evolution. I give references in tht post. Like you, I love the subject also. As a point, although I disagree with you concerning it, I think you are more honest about it than most of your team in this forum.
Scott was speaking in the vernacular in that sentence you quoted. You can seriously believe that she agrees with you, can you?

<quoted text>But then, if you are trying to prove that GOD doesn't exist, and that nature is all that is needed, even if you did get spontainious generation (which you won't) you'll have to explain how these "conditions" also came into existence naturally.

Bullshit. The is not what Chimney said. He said "...the same thing could happen in a natural environment whether or not a designer was present."

That is not a disproof of god. Are you so desperate to pin an atheist label on anyone who doesn't share your 'faith' thaat you will twist the words of someone else?

[QUOTE who="marksman11"]I'm glad I'm not you. And you really refuse to say that your beliefs don't require faith? Yours requires more faith than mine does!!!
Nope.

It took a billion years for life to arise yet Marky seems to think we should be able to figure it all out in one lifetime. And he thinks Kitten is out of touch?

*** Breaking story *** Marksman11 proven to be a dishonest quote miner in this post ***
This is incorrect. Chemical evolution and biological evolution are observed facts. I suspect you are quote mining again.
Hypothesis: Quote mining is the sort of unethical practice that one expects creationists to engage in (by history).
After a little searching I find your quote:
http://books.google.com/books...
Turns out this is not a quote of the author, but a quote the author DEBUNKS. Phillip Johnson (known antiscience creationist) is the source of the quote.
You are BUSTED again. Again you are show to be nothing more than a dishonest creationist.
CRACK! OUTTA HERE!

I love it when a plan comes together!!! Hurry up and search my last quote Dugan!!! Hurry!!!
by the way, here's you another one....
"but synthesizing complete RNA or DNA is extraodinarily difficult.
After a replicating structure evolved (whether it started out as PNA or RNA or DNA or something else....."
Notice she said, "replicating structure evolved"!!! Granted, she's a hypocrite like you are. She says they are two different things, but hypocritically uses languge that says other wise.
I love when a good plan comes together. Now.....run a search out this quote!! HURRY!!! it's on page 25!!!
Again, vernacular. Scott would never agree with you.

It is unnecessary to discuss the mountain tops as such.
The mountains that were covered will automatically be in the region that was flooded regardless of whether the flood was global or local.
You only wanted to say hi, isnt that it?
Ok. Fine.
Hi KAB.
How are you?
Is everything ok?
Do you know much about the physical properties of water? Consider a modest mountain of 5,000 feet. What would be the global implications of that "local" mountain being covered with water? Now that's data!

Most liberal theologians believe that Paul did not write Ephesians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus, even though the books identify Paul as their author. Liberals suggest that the Epistles 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus were written 35 to 85 years after Paul's death. Their main reason is that these Epistles discussed church matters that only became of concern to the church after Paul's death. Most liberal theologians believe that James and Jude were not written by Jesus' brothers, and were composed after 100 CE. Also, they believe that 2 Peter and 1,2 & 3 John were not written by the apostles. More details.

They're all entitled to their opinions, in their case admittedly liberal biased.

No, that is fantasy.
While you have been busy being starstruck at how great God's power must be to have accomplished such a feat, you have already been provided information about the weight of water, the volume of water in a cubic mile, the atmospheric pressures beneath the water column, the crush limit of pine wood, the hypothetical effects (because IT DIDN'T HAPPEN) of both fresh and salt water intrusion on ecosystems, etc., etc.

Oh, and you're an animal too.
Not really.

I just dont see how they fit into the evolution thing, since they would have been another race just as developed as we are.

As a matter of fact, it should refute evolution theory because it proves that there were humans back then and not some distant "ancestor" at a lower stage of "evolution".

<quoted text>That was awesome, but I thought all scientists supported evolution?:-)
LOL!

Are you being sarcastic?!!

You must be careful to do your research because EVOLUTIONISTS WILL CONCEAL INFORMATION AND NEGLECT VALID EVIDENCE.

There are scientists (even atheist scientists) in many fields of science including genetics and molecular biology who dont agree that evolution theory is valid nor that it accurately describes any real event/process.

There are prestigious scientific communities that laugh at the idea that evolution even could have occurred

But if you are not checking, you will tend to believe that the whole scientific world is in favour of evolution.
