Right. So you claim evolutionists destroy the Earth with extra heat therefore the Earth is young thereby accelerating radioactive decay and creating more heat thereby destroying the Earth therefore Goddidit with magic.

And who knew that evolutionists existed before the theory of evolution? It's now a time travelling conspiracy!!!

Mitochondrial Eve and Y chromosome Adam
Mitochondrial Eve and Y chromosome Adam lived about 80,000 years apart

So are you saying that Adam was well into necrophilia?

I am glad you know that death is inevitable.

Actually Chucky is unwittingly not wrong in this particular case. Creationism can never be completely ruled out of science. All they need to is present a scientific case for it.
3,000 years later they have none.
And they never will So come on all you bible bashing creationists, once and for all prove it. Come on, I mean you've got the god on your side, there's no need for him to hide any more. Come on down. I dare you too, I double dare you.:) Take your time We've been waiting this long ....

You're back!
How about a shrug...
What's wrong with a shrug between old buds?
C'mon
Shrug, shrug, shrug....
I notice you are still going on about nested hierarchies
You old sandbag
How about joining us here in the 21st century
Take the Gene: TAAR1 ENSG00000146399
http://asia.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Gene/Com...
Now, of course it could be argued that the primates are all together, more similar to each other. But it should be noticed that Because this gene in Humans is less similar to Gorilla than it is to Monkeys then the Nested Hierarchy is violated between the Great Ape Gorilla which should be more similar to Humans than Humans are to Marmosets, Gibbons and Macuaques.
Not according to your own info. That's why you have to misrepresent datasets like this, because it's the overall base by base comparison that counts. So let's propose an example where TAAR1 is present in the ancestor of both humans and gorillas 12MYA. Humans and gorillas split roughly 10MYA and diverge as expected, however the gorilla lineage happens to see more changes in TAAR1 than the separate lineage that led to lets say Orangs. The overall genetic comparison between humans and gorillas demonstrates gorillas to be the closest genetic match, but it happens that TAAR1 is more different in gorillas to humans than it is in Orangs. This is *not* a violation of nested hierarchy.

But then none of this matters if Goddidit with magic anyway does it?

Oops.

Nope there are more than 3700 documented, as we have discussed several times during the course of this day

You have not managed to contradict the fact, you have not managed to contradict the wording that you own god accepts that there are more than one god. All you have done is give personal opinion (as usual) with nothing to back it up, itís the Charles Idemi way

Ruling out creation from science according to Makesure 100, is a freakshow.
Everything you say here is a freak show. Stop wandering up to complete strangers and making off=the=wall statements to them, then demanding that they study the Bible to make the same harebrained conclusions that you have.

You're in your own patriarchal fantasy. Nobody else! Even your Greek chorus is mostly involuntary pedestrians who you thank for their Christian participation. Between you all, your faith couldn't win you a purse full of discount coupons at the grocery store. There might be a few accidental deaths with scissors though.

Sure it does. Because I have other posts which back me up, then mooks like Maz and Russ don't bother to address. Then they simply move onto something else instead just like good little lying for Jesus propagandists should. Or in Maz's case repeat the same shite over and over and pretend no-one's dealt with it. Then daft people like Charles buy it.

Unlike you, Austinhook doesn't separate himself from the natural world where everything dies. Only self-propelled egg beaters like you claim that immortality is the natural order and that the reality of man's mortality is proof of God.

I don't. In fact I'm the only Biblical literalist I know, because certainly no fundie ever does. Not even Chuck who apparently thinks God Himself is the one who put pen to paper on the thing. The fact that you pretend the Bible has to say something it does not is NOT our problem.

And that may well be. But it's still probably completely different to what you think it's like.

Not that it'll stop you from pretending to know more about God than anyone else.
