Yes.
Hence the debate. Christians and other religionists who are scientist, will disagree to that.

Charles, there's a whole world of language going on around you that you are missing and people know it.

I'm a bit nerdy. I think that generally most people are far more willing to lie selfishly than comes natural to me. There's an empathic gap there, I guess because I respect peoples intelligence a bit more than they deserve. If I behaved the way they do, I'd be inclined to slug people constantly, which wouldn't be socially acceptable and a bit dangerous as I'm not that big.

You on the other hand, function like an autistic savant. You seem to be importing left brain functions over to your right brain for some reason. You're just not getting it. Mentally, you count what you should be taking pictures of and/or vice-versa. Whatever you think is funny, nobody else here does.

You're either going to have to explain your feelings better or stop commanding others to fly right. It's not funny for any of us to just keep on abusing you because you aren't learning! OK?

I still fail to see your point? Lots of great minds have some pretty crazy beliefs. It doesn't make those great minds less great nor does it give validity to their crazy beliefs.

I am fed up with evolutionists who must accept evolution for it is the only theory which is compatible with their materialist worldview.

I made a quick youtube video


I just love these excerpts of a hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. If the world was really built this way, what signs would there be?
Apparent age is built from the beginning. Even sitting in a bar would start with the memory of a fulfilled life.
Here all is held outside the laws of nature until the "commencement of life cycle" (at 2:36).

Evolutionists have no choice. Evolution is a bad theory but the best they have.

Whilst we can sit back and enjoy (even if we have no idea how it really is all here).

Really? You know he did not believe in the trinity, nor did he believe that Jesus was god?

Did you know he was a demonologist and practiced the occult?

You still think he was a Christian? I got more!

1. Creationist predictions that if the creation was made by the hand of God there would be no need for junk dna are currently being validiated.
Yet more than 80% Of the genome does not contribute to the development of the phenotype. Much of this material is recognizable as bits and pieces of nonfunctioning genes and retroviral inserts.

Your contention is equivalent to looking at the remains of an old car that hasn't run in decades and claiming that it isn't junk because it might have some usable parts.

Does the failure of your "Creationist predictions" mean that you'll abandon your God?
MazHere wrote:
2. Evolutionists that shoved junk dna down creationists throats over the past decade, were actually presenting flawed and incomplete data and now have to suck eggs.
See above.
MazHere wrote:
3. Evolutionists asserted that this non functional dna was the left overs from evolution. Now this great evidence has been falsified. TOE has either a failed prediction or never could make a prediction around non coding dna.
In your DNA are the remains of three genes that code for egg yolk. They no longer function, but by synteny and sequence similarity, they are recognizable as the same three that are still functional in birds. They are left from our common ancestor with birds.(I won't waste time explaining how we know that unless you ask.)

Is this the sort of thing you claim to have falsified?
MazHere wrote:
4. Creationist predictions around all organs having function and not being left overs from some deep evolutionary event are also being validiated.
Most structures have function. A few (like hind limbs on whales, eyes on blind creatures) have degenerated beyond that point and will eventually be lost.
MazHere wrote:
5. Evolutionists predicted and thought they'd found left over non functional organs and called them vestigial.
Blind Cave Fish.
MazHere wrote:
6. Evolutionists have had to redefine the definition of vestigial because what has been found is that vestigial organs do have function. Not only do they have function they also have a different function.
They had a function in ancestral forms and now they have a different function. They've evolved.
MazHere wrote:
7. Evolutionists have great hand waving abilities and poof mythical theropods into existence to save their bird paradigm from total falsification. This is an example of evo handwaving.
This one's too esoteric for me.
MazHere wrote:
8. Handwaving has been evoked in relation to all fossil and genomic evidence in support of TOE, including mankinds ancestry with chimps.
Again, you seem not to have a point.
MazHere wrote:
9. TOE has predictive ability akin to a crystal ball.
The only prediction is that any discoveries concerning species diversity will conform to the model described by the theory. So far, so good. You haven't found anything that contradicts that, have you?
MazHere wrote:
10. The support I can provide for creationism could not be worse than the 150 years of instability and falsifications evos have to offer.
You've provided no support for Creationism nor any substantive contradictions to ToE.
MazHere wrote:
That kinda sums up what I have demonstrated that you no longer want to talk about because none of these above have been successfully refuted.
Whatever you say.

Oh, by the way, tarantula is the proper spelling for your pet.
Her name is spider.
Yes they did,they also spoke of the apostle pual and the first century Christians

I studied the history of civilizations,they've have so many writtings about him..
They mention him as a great teacher.

They also found pontius Pilates grave.. Jesus from nazarus was real.

Radioactive carbon dating must flawed if they found humanoids older than Lucy.

The scientist do not have the answers for everything
the Bible was written to warn humans of the future.

The Bible mentions the Roman currency denaruis

Myth is something that's not true, the Bible the civilizations and some of the rulers.
That's a fact.

Pride! and that is it.
Pride goes before destruction or a fall. You think you know or understand everything, but on the contrary you don't and you will never. As for me, i am learning, because i know that learning stops when one is dead.

To me, beliefs are personal to the concerned. No mortal can rightfully judge a mortal, except God, the immortal. He was a christian. That is what i know. Period.

No. But every true scientist that accepts religion as a source of truth, will definitely disagree with your use of, " yes ".

Autism is a bad sickness( disorder). What type of a person are you. You boast of a language that will never be yours. This was what led to our initial disagreement on English language. There is nothing like language barrier here, if there is any, you are. Stop the pride.
