More educated how exactly?
Do I sound beyond ignorant to you?
Are you trying to belittle me and why exactly?
It would be one thing had I said anything offensive to
you or anyone else and I can't see that I've done that.
Yes, you do sound ignorant to me.

I realize Topix is not the best place to discuss this subject, nor is it a good place for politics.
Know what I think would be nice - that is if the true believers spoke only to those others with similiar beliefs and the nonbelievers discussed what it is they wish to discuss.
Since there is no real proof on either side of this matter, IMO. Faith is not proof and my opinions on evolution offers me no proof either.
There you go, now you don't just sound ignorant, you provided evidence that you are ignorant.

Do you ever get the feeling when your alone, that your not really alone?

and as for the rest of your post here--I find all that dark age goat herder stuff only slightly useful, like for examples of how NOT to mire through life barbarically UNenlightened.
That, and for the studies of historical civilization as far as insights into-as we know it...thus far anyway!
For your enlightenment, I was born, baptized and raised as a Christian. I consider myself agnostic with Buddhist tendencies. A "literal and inerrant" translation of the Bible was NEVER a requirement for believing in God and thinking that Adam and Eve and the talking snake and magic fruit and giants and satyrs, etc. were historically and factually real just seemed really silly in the Christian circles I grew up in. Heck, it was my mother and one of the nuns at Sunday school that told me that the stories in the Old Testament were merely myths, fables and fairy tales that God used to teach important lessons to bronze age pastoral cultures that were, for the most part, scientifically ignorant.

If "thinking" adults here in the 21st century want to think those stories are all "literally and inerrantly true" than my using the phrase "bronze age, goat herder FAIRY TALES" is the LEAST of their worries.

Intelligent design refers to a scientific research program as well as a community of scientists, philosophers and other scholars who seek evidence of design in nature. The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected

You are preoccupied with ignorance. You never had a sexual life.......get over it, it's not important. You were no doubt abused as a child......get over it. You are a hateful person who only sends hate. Get over it all. Every message you send is filled with doubt, sour opinion and total ignorance in everything.........GET A LIFE.
Why all those hateful things could be said of you. So far I have not been impressed with your alledged "higher education." Are you really talking about an education at the "University of a Higher Power?" If you are, that would explain your attitude. Now why don't you stop thinking about me taking a shower and find something nonviolent to take up your time.

The evidence is all around in the timing and structure of natural systems. Systems cycle to do a work and this in itself denotes intelligence in the set up.

Which is why it's not science. Thank you for proving that creationism is just woowoo.

Well, first, your assertion that it requires "design" to do this is not evident at all. Secondly, which "intelligence?" None of those asserted by humans so far withstand scrutiny. So you have two things to provide evidence for, that this can't happen on it's own and that your particular "intelligence" made it happen.

Care to compound your assertions?

For you to be so rude to me without so much as provocation just amazes me. Perhaps if we were to talk about how we raise our children or our favorite recipe we may have been more pleasant to be around. Guess you are the better woman here. Have a nice ... life.
Posting nothing but religious mythology makes it impossible to take you seriously when the topic is one of scientific inquiry. Perhaps you shouldn't bring sporks to gunfights?

Just one more thing for you. There is nothing terribly wrong with being ignorant and your approach in trying to teach leaves much to be desired. There is no reason to be so rude, nor uptight with one that you are not familiar with and have no prior posts with.
You confuse me with a preacher.... oh wait, you said teach, my bad.

I never had a doubt...it's very basic common sense...not to mention the intuitional aspects.

Pft. Let's test that.

Your entire religion is nothing more than assertions lacking any evidence. Therefore your religion is mythology and you are delusional for asserting otherwise.
