You are interpreting the bible wrongly.
Go on with your gibberish.
I am not interpreting the babble at all (that is the job of true believers like you) I am reading it logically, as it is written with no faith telling me what I should interpret it as

Anyway what is to interpret about Exodus 20:4-5

“You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God”

Tell me how you interpret that passage?

What about Psalm 82:1

“God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods”

Tell me how you interpret that passage?

HAHAHA O your killing me and the bibles always right Right hahahahaha I'm not trying to upset you, really I'm not But that's such an insane thing to say. The bible is a story book that's all and one day waaay in the future, they will look back at the history of human evolution and think wow we've come a long way Thank Darwin we are not like that any more :)

No, peer review is a fair process. If creationists really had a valid idea it would pass peer review.
This was not peer reviewed:

Watson, J.D. and Crick, F.H.C., A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid, Nature 171:737–738, 25 April 1953

Probably a load of rubbish

I remain open to possibilities of SOME form of life existing elsewhere -- even if it's (for example) a simple one-celled plant form on Titan.
ET? Not likely.
What about possible ET's in black holes? After all...it is theoretically possible that earth "evolved" out of such?

<quoted text>One day you will realize that trying to poke holes in evolutionary theory does not equal evidence for creation. That will be a momentous occasion. Pointing out one small, inconsequential thing and ignoring the plethora of evidence for evolution is dishonest and desperate. Why do you even care so much? Can't you still enjoy your god and your religion without frantically trying to disprove one of the most successful theories in modern science? It's akin to some idiot trying to prove that the sun revolves around the earth because his holy book told him so. Oh wait, you guys already did that. Didn't work out too well.
Aristotle first suggested an earth-centric universe 384–322 BC

Ptolemy (AD 2nd century) expanded these ideas into what became known as the Ptolemaic system

A Christian, 16th century, Copernicus (1473–1543) postulated as a better explanation that the earth and planets revolved around the sun

Another Christian, 17th century, Galileo (1564–1642), with his telescope, was able to carry out repeated and repeatable observations which refuted Aristotle and Ptolemy, and supported Copernicus.

The heliocentric or Copernican system opposed the views of the astronomer-philosophers of the day, who earned their livelihood by teaching Aristotle and Ptolemy, and so were biased against change.

They therefore either ignored, ridiculed, destroyed, or hostilely opposed Galileo’’s writings.

Many Catholic Church leaders allowed themselves to be persuaded by the Aristotelians at the universities that the geocentric system was taught in Scripture and that Galileo was contradicting the Bible.

This was because:
1.
The Church leaders had accepted as dogma the belief system of the pagan (i.e. non-Christian) philosophers, Aristotle and Ptolemy, which had become the worldview of the then scientific establishment. The result was that Church leaders were using the knowledge of the day to interpret Scripture, instead of using the Bible to evaluate the knowledge of the day.

2.
They clung to the ‘majority opinion’ about the universe and rejected the ‘minority view’ of Copernicus and Galileo, even after Galileo had presented indisputable evidence based on repeatable scientific observations that the majority was wrong.

3.
They picked out a few verses from the Bible which they thought said that the sun moved around the earth, but they failed to realize that Bible texts must be understood in terms of what the author intended to convey. Thus, when Moses wrote of the ‘risen’ sun (Genesis 19:23) and sun ‘set’(Genesis 28:11), his purpose was not to formulate an astronomical dictum. Rather he, by God’s spirit, was using the language of appearance so that his readers would easily understand what time of day he was talking about. And it is perfectly valid in physics to describe motion relative to the most convenient reference frame, which in this case is the earth

They therefore bitterly opposed Galileo to the extent of forcing him on pain of death to repudiate his findings.

A lesson to the Church today

Do not compromise...

And you, timn17

Actually if you had any sort of education at all you would know that there is actually literally thousands.

And how do you "know" that yours is the "right" one? Oh yeah - people DIE, therefore the Bible iz troo cuz teh Bible sez so.

and the Bible for some, can be a great book of instruction, for those willing to read with open heart, rather than ignorant narrow mind anyway, on how NOT to be repeatedly "STUPID" for all man(et woe-man) kind lol.

Ah like that werd Freak...it is SO applicable to some of the walking uh "NOT so evolved" rocks sometimes lol.

There. Sorry. You say that so much, and it really gets on my nerves. They make after the fact predictions, and that's it. You can't piggy back evolutionary theory for your predictions. Make your own, falsifiable theory. Until then, your god is not science.
Yes, yes
They do...
From the paraellel, now defunct since every evo-god worshipper has been utterly thrashed, Creation/Evolution debate:
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/TMH...
Post number 1354

Creationist Dr Russell Humphrey's model out-guns the evolutionary model
He proposed, using several scriptures...here's evidence that scientists can and have used the Holy scriptures as a basis for their science....
for example 2 Peter 3:5:

2 Peter 3:5
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

5 For this they are wilfully ignorant of, that the heavens were before, and the earth out of water, and through water, consisting by the word of God.

Russell Humphreys refined the Barnes model that had calculated that the current, underlying the freely decaying magnetic field, could not have been decaying for more than 10,000 years, or else its starting strength was have been large enough to melt the earth.

As the Barnes model HAS to be rejected by evo-goblins, their preferred model is the self-sustaining dynamo.

No working analytic model of this has been developed despite work for some 40-50 years.

Thus, no evidence exits for this model...despite being clung to with white knuckled desperation by evo-aficionados

His model also calculated the fields of other planets and the sun!

Dr Humphreys model explains features that are puzzles to dynamo theorists such as the enigma of lunar magnetism

Dr Humphreys also correctly predicted a lower Mercury magnetic field as measured by Messenger 2008 vs that measured earlier on by Mariner spacecraft in 1975.

Dr Humphreys also predicted the field strengths of Uranus and Neptune. His predictions were 100, 000 times that of the evolutionary dynamo predictions.

The two rival models were inadvertently put to the test when the Voyager 2 spacecraft went past these planets in 1986 and 1989.

The field for Neptune and Uranus were just as predicted by Dr Humphreys.

The Humpreys model also explains why the moons of Jupiter, which also have sores, have magnetic fields, while Callisto which lacks a core, also lacks a field.

Humphreys model also predicts rapid reversals of the magnetic field.

This is in defiance of the evolutionary models predictions of reversals taking thousands of years 'proving' the earth is millions of years old.

This is the usual wishful thinking exhibited by evolutionists

But please see:

Coe, R S and Prevot M, Evidence suggesting extremely rapid field variation during a geomagnetic reversal, Earth and Planetary Science, 92(3/4) 292 to 298, Apr 1989

AND

Were there grapes in that process? Your answer is not making sense to me. I forgive all typos. Want to try that answer again?
The question too...were grapes in the process of making wine? Which grape would gather the others into one fermenting vessel, or was it perhaps just a handful of grapes, just randomly felled in one same spot, in the process of turning themselves into wine? If so, would the fermented result puddle itself randomly as well, enough to take an ancient spoon and drink from?

Oh the profoundness of such processes lol
