Ah, the essence of fundamentalism...

Now the thing is, are you capable of understanding that you can no more demonstrate your religion any more than the Hindu (or any other religion) can?

And if so, will you simply ignore that minor inconvenience like most other fundies do?

From your article:
"[Update 07/09 23:00 Indeed, to many scientists, these are the questions that matter, and ones that ENCODE has dodged through a liberal definition of “functional”. That, say the critics, critically weakens its claims of having found a genome rife with activity. Most of the ENCODE’s “functional elements” are little more than sequences being transcribed to RNA, with little heed to their physiological or evolutionary importance. These include repetitive remains of genetic parasites that have copied themselves ad infinitum, the corpses of dead and once-useful genes, and more."
Didn't you read down that far?
Only to see what was able to be cherry-picked.

The human brain is intricate in its fashioning and it is associated with the timing and functioning and correlating of much of the great complexity of the body. We as humans are apart from other creatures and much of our refinements are related to our brain and hand coordination. We think and feel with our hands. The hands contribute to the mental processes of thought and feeling.

My God does not require people to have proof. He requires faith which is cool because I don't have proof but I have tons of faith.
Presented so starkly as that I just can't imagine where the faith comes from. It seems that it must be some weird interpretation of the word, but try as I may I can't figure any interpretation that makes sense.

In everyday life faith derives from proof, and doesn't float off on it's own, or have a standing even greater than the proof or evidence it relies upon. If faith were so essential for everyone, then they would have absolute faith in every new thought, and each time thereafter that they "thunk" it, and would never look to the proof. Then the world would be in a terrible mess.

Hmmmm... I wonder if the fact, that the world IS in a terrible mess, is telling us something?

Well if you could explain why mutations that matter are in reproductive systm, then we can continue to discuss.
ERV's. Except they aren't mutations. Not anymore. Now they're an established part of our genomes. This is what evolution DOES. Our DNA naturally changes over time, ergo each subsequent generation is slightly different to that which went before.

O HAI! You were on page 2967! As you can see it's **quite a while** into the thread...

Here's 330347 papers demonstrating evolution.

But don't worry. Anything that has the word "delete" in it really proves JEWMAGIC and anything that doesn't is all part of the evil worldwide atheist Darwinist evolutionist scientist Liberal socialist Communist Nazi baby-eating anti-Christian God-hating Satan-worshiping Illuminati conspiracy so therefore really proves JEWMAGIC!

Yup, most apes do.(shrug)

God is an ape.

You said so.

Oh, and you got no way outta this one since it was a creationist who pointed out we were all apes in the first place.

Nuts.

<quoted text>Really? Then why does Maz lie? Why does she misrepresent genuine research? Why does she claim science she has already admitted to rejecting proves science wrong? Why claim she has an interest in science when her alternative is magic?

In short, why is she a typical fundie lying for Jesus hypocrite?

All of us has a common ancester that originated from either a comet or an asteriod hitting the Earth in just the right spot, certainly near shallow tidal water.
Nope! No "god" needed to make life here or anywhere else.
When we die, we rot, and are recycled back into the Earth.
There's no such thing as heaven. No hell either.

That phrase never quite resonated with me. Man is sinful by nature. People are murdered everyday, children are abused and living in poverty. Greedy wealthy elitists thinking only of themselves and their precious money. That's some image.

OH MY THANK YOU I SEE WHAT YOU'RE SAYING I'VE BEEN SO BLIND!!!
Pffffft hahahahahahahaha come off it like evolution isn't the religion of evolution. You hold faith your science is correct you spend time trying to find the truth you study the words and works of your greatest minds all you're missing is a little prayer. Than you say "how can anyone believe in God". I find it easier to believe "God dun it" than the universe farted and here we are.
The truth without eye witness accounts neither are provable beyond the shadow of a doubt.

That is the description of your god from the bible, so where's the difference? Well, for one, we actually help people just to help them, nowhere does it say your god does that.

All people are born with a sinful or disobedient nature that must be brought into subjection. We inherit the sins of our fathers, its just the way it is, but the good news is we can overcome through faith in God and what he has done on the cross.
