That is not an answer to the question: show me a falsifiable hypothesis of Creationism.

That monkeys do not have webbed fingers is irrelevant.

Source of water is also irrelevant.

"Missing link" shows that you do not understand evolution even at the most fundamental level. All forms are transitional - this means that every generation of every species is a "missing link."

How can you presume to criticize science that you clearly do not understand?

Go read a high school biology book. FFS.

Oh you reply with more atheist babble. It's an easy question. If we are so much like monkeys, why don't they have webbed fingers? Posting a atheist forum doesn't count as an answer. It's one thing evolution hasn't proven. Now follow along its your turn to answer my question. How did all the water get here? FYI
If all of Earth's water (oceans, icecaps and glaciers, lakes, rivers, groundwater, and water in the atmosphere was put into a sphere, then the diameter of that water ball would be about 860 miles (about 1,385 kilometers), a bit more than the distance between Salt Lake City, Utah to Topeka, Kansas. The volume of all water would be about 332.5 million cubic miles (mi3), or 1,386 million cubic kilometers (km3). A cubic mile of water equals more than 1.1 trillion gallons. A cubic kilometer of water equals about 264 billion gallons.
Evolution is not atheism.
And you are unable to answer any of the questions we have already posed to you.

Massive fail.

Ah yes, if you can't put up a rational argument threaten them with your invisible Jewish Sky Wizard.

"Do as I tell you to or my invisible sky wizard will punish you after you die."

To you that sounds "rational".

Yet, change the deity...

"Do as I tell you to or the winged serpent will punish you after you die."

And now you think the Aztecs are full of it...

No, here's what really happened.

You exhibited nearly every single known dumbass Creationist misunderstanding of science.

You proved that you are just another ignorant fundamentalist with no knowledge of even basic geology and biology.

And add to that, trying to threaten people with God.

Guess what beers?

God doesn't like you doing that. So maybe you are the one that better watch it.

There's a difference in threatening you and warning you. Beers is warning you, as told too. God commands us to warn you.

I see where you are going with this. I see it as arrogance of their supposed superiority. They aren't trying to tell everyone about God. They are telling everyone they think doesn't believe that they do and are better because only a superior person would find God. That isn't in the Bible to my knowledge.

Then they set around smelling each others farts and proclaiming it a rose parade and they are all the grand marshalls.

Pointing out your ignorance isn't an attack. It's a statement of fact. If you're insulted by others recognizing your ignorance, you shouldn't tell them to stop recognizing it; you should work on reducing your ignorance so it's not so obvious to everyone. But, that would require ANY effort on your part, so we shan't hold our breath.

So, passing God's threat along isn't DIRECTLY threatening; it's merely remind someone of a threat made by someone else, for whom there is no evidence of his existence.*I* am not threatening you; my imaginary friend is threatening you, and I'm just warning you about his threats.

Fundamentalist, judgmental literalist religion is a form of mental illness.

Ever notice how the less judgmental and more abstract religions don't have any problem with science?

No he doesn't.

God has not spoken to you.

At _BEST_ you can claim that the book that the Church puts out contains messages that the Church put in to make people who give the Church money afraid to leave the Church.

Funny enough the book also contains the message: Give the church more of your money

And don't question what we say

Basically, it's a scam designed to catch the profoundly stupid

As I just said on another thread. Evolution has nothing to do with atheism. It does not disprove God nor does it try to. All it does is to disprove the creation myth in the Bible and we would have know that was false anyway with the science that we now today.

So now you are claiming I worship Darwin. I don't know the politics of most of my acquaintances in science, it is irrelevant to science.

My father? You don't even know who I am and you are casting aspersions on my father. You are a worthless pig. Do you think you are an example of a good Christian? The answer is NO.

Don't worry, I am not some nut that follows people around using real (in this case) or imagined verbal attacks on family members as an excuse for sociopathic behavior. You have the right to speak what is on your mind. You are still a worthless, disgusting, pig, but you have free speech.

Honestly, if you stopped posting and never returned I couldn't care less. Nobody would miss you or even know you had gone. You have made no real impact here. Well done.
