Yes, the forces of physics apparently do not require an intervening intelligence to operate. That's why it's called the theory of gravity and not the theory of Intelligent Falling. Our beliefs are irrelevant. All that matters is evidence. A a complete and total utter lack of evidence for a God doesn't mean that a God didn't do it. It just means there's no evidence.

You don't HAVE a point, Bo. If you did you'd be able to articualte what it is and why it's supposed to be a problem for us mean old evo's. Because so far you're unable to point one out.

Beliefs are irrelevant. We think reality is real and that religious apologetics is not science. Considering the fact that YOU'RE the one who promotes anti-science I don't see where we're supposed to have a problem, other than your intent to ruin public school education for everybody just because you got a cactus up your butt about invisible Jew wizards.

Admit what?

You appear to be under the mistaken assumption that just because you're a religious fundie any one with a differing opinion must also be a religious fundie, but simply of a different colour. That simply isn't the case.
