So then you're saying ALL science is fake.

We are surrounded by evolution in action. How would you explain how man managed to use to it to breed the domesticated animals he has?

Anyone who asks why apes are still around is just showing a complete lack of understanding of evolution. We came from a common ancestor.

If you don't believe in evoltion I suggest you never ever visit your doctor again as that is what all his knowledge and skill assumes. So you can't trust his knowledge.

Maybe that will lead the the non-believers into becoming victims of evolution themselves.

Unlike your god, science does not claim to be infallible, just the opposite in fact.

If he create us he fell significantly short of what I would term a good design. Nature is cruel and heartless. 99.99999% of all single creatures on Earth die before they are able to breed. A kind god? I hardly think so.

So, "intelligent design" becomes undetectable because absolutely anything, even things we deem horribly unintelligent and poorly designed, must, by definition, be considered "intelligently designed." In other words, you begin with the conclusion, and then declare that no matter the evidence, everything fits the conclusion. The perfection of the circularity of your argument is absolutely fantastic.

Dropping out the double negative on one side of the equation leaves us with
'confirmed to be errant could still be inerrant'
You really seem rattled today.
Maybe this will help. It's not a double negative. It's two single negatives, not confirmed and inerrant (i.e., not errant). Thus, it is not "not not confirmed = confirmed" and "not not errant = errant" which combined would be "confirmed errant". It is instead "not confirmed not errant". Thus, since it is not confirmed, it could be not errant. You are so not logically (an extension of technically) saavy. If this still doesn't register, ask a logic expert you trust.

Really? I note that you conspicuously refer to and express reverence for oldest available sources, yet adhere lock-step with modern (JW) translations, medieval forms and Byzantine materials.
You don't appear to WANT to understand much of anything at all.

No, you draw together words that are completely unrelated into nonsensical compositions that you think resemble grammatically correct and literate sentences but in reality simply betray a complete and total lack of any subject matter you are sadly, attempting to, address.
I wonder if you will give and analyze a specific example? I think not since you can't.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. I provide them to you on a daily basis and all I get in return is a song and dance.

Please defend just one point. One would be a start, right, if it withstands scrutiny? I suggest you make it what you consider one of the best.

Will you man up? Or will it be another KAB epic fail?

Not to you. You are a typical cultist in every way.
When you believe something, all the evidence points that way. But the evidence never points that way if you don't have the belief or a desire to believe.
There is not a cultist on the planet who does not think their religion is perfect, or nearly so, and can show you the evidence to "prove it".
The cult tactic it to show the potential brainwashee only snip-its of evidence that can (in absentia of larger reality) be added up only one way.
Once there is buy-in it is difficult to ever get them to see reality.

That's what I thought. Your contribution was worthless for the purpose of the exercise.
So you can't dispute me. No surprise. Engineering is obviously not one of your talents. Among many other things.

Instead of breaking wind, why don't you give us your explanation as to why introducing additional and unnecessary potential points of failure without any benefit is a good engineering practice?

If you can.

He attempted to pose an engineering problem. That's the context of my response. So far, however, I have no reason to believe he or you are technically saavy about anything. For example, other than your long-ago assertion of mathematical prowess, I've never seen any significant mathematical content come forth from you, and you rarely seem to correctly understand anything of any technical nature.
Yet you cannot counter me. Why is that? Is it because your not so nearly 'technically savvy' and you like to think? You claim everyone else in incompetent in the subject but you can't even begin to address a basic engineering principle.

All you can do is dodge the issue, wuss.

Of the various versions of the Ten Commandments I like to use the version that was supposedly carved in stone by God. That is the Exodus 34: 10-28 version. The modern interpretation of the 10th Commandment is a ban on cheeseburgers.
