If a Creationist were to bring solid evidence here concerning intelligent design in nature, all we would get from the Evos would be the sound of crickets.

More assumptions or projections, for you it is same to assume that this is a projection. The other who just posted this same canard could go either way. You have ignored all the solid evidence for evolution.

Are you claiming that that grammatical nightmare was actually published? In a reputable journal?
I'd like to see a link, please.
Here's another one on it-

Take a moment to thank this little particle for all the work it does, because without it, you'd be just inchoate energy without so much as a bit of mass. What's more, the same would be true for the entire universe. It was in the 1960s that Scottish physicist Peter Higgs first posited the existence of a particle that causes energy to make the jump to matter. But it was not until last summer that a team of researchers at Europe's Large Hadron Collider — Rolf Heuer, Joseph Incandela and Fabiola Gianotti — at last sealed the deal and in so doing finally fully confirmed Einstein's general theory of relativity. The Higgs — as particles do — immediately decayed to more-fundamental particles, but the scientists would surely be happy to collect any honors or awards in its stead.

Where did I assert that you insulted transsexuals? You are now reading way more into what I posted, which just compounds the evidence that you are projecting. Your immediate defensive posture to my stating that I perceive a low self esteem because of your assertions actually counts as proof of it, making my assertions even more valid. Then your attempts at ad homs compounds evidence of your lack of self esteem, considering that "lost soul" would be an insult to you, and not me, only demonstrates your consistent projection. Souls do not exist, as far as we know, as there is no evidence of them, therefore one cannot be lost, for things which do not exist cannot be lost.
I made no assumptions, all my assertions and analysis of your psychological profile are based entirely on your posts, your own words. Whether my analysis is accurate can be debated, it is, however, based on solid and consistent habits you display on here for all to see. The fact that you continue to make specific assumptions about someone you know absolutely nothing about is a pretty good indication that you are either projecting or being dishonest, my analysis is that you are projecting due to other aspects of your linguistic patterns I have pointed out.
No, dummy, I have already admitted that I have an eccentric side and if you call my creative side a pathology, then you are in serious problem yourself. You will never comprehend the meaning of God and soul and why people succumb to the idea because you are in denial of yourself. Get over it!

And yet, a significant majority of states don't recognize gay marriage, many of which actually have incorporated specific wording into their state Constitutions defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
Just as many states had such laws (even some in their constitutions) against *interracial* marriage until the US Supreme Court's 1967 decision in the Loving v. Virginia case.

The only trend I'm seeing is tiny-weenie New England states, the ones who don't have a lot of other minorities in them, doing Gay marriage.
I guess you missed the fact that same-sex marriage is also legal in Maryland, Washington state, and Iowa.

Yeah, the legal recognition of same-sex marriage can be such an obstruction to homophobia.

Now you are distorting my assertions and words in an attempt to make yourself feel better. Interesting how hard you will work just to avoid facing the mirror, no? How could I be in denial of being human, I fully know and admit that I am human, a member of the great apes that have proven dominance over the other animals by our own intelligence. So what am I denying? Sounds as if you are too frightened to face reality, really. Either because you wasted your life so you grasp at the fantasy that there is more after, or you are guilty of something you know is wrong so you hold onto a "forgiving" super power that is capable of overturning your own conscience. You have become an even more complex and thus more interesting subject.

Now the excuse of "eccentric" side, does that actually make you feel better about being different? You should not feel upset about being different, it is our differences that make our species strong. Then your attempt to claim that I called creativity a pathology, that's interesting. Please explain what drove you to that conclusion.

You would not believe in God even if there was indisputable scientific evidence...it's such a mute question...you would just call it bad science...so why do you even ask?
Then why are you even bringing it up?(shrug)

Facts are Bo, that you are incapable of providing a rational argument for your position. I suspect that even despite your complete and total utter lack of education, you are aware of this. This is why even now your response to my post was not to address any arguments I make but to respond with more ad-hom.

But since you're STILL here and STILL repeating BS philosophical arguments which are known to be BS by both the non-fundies AND fundies of this forum, and STILL bringing the subject up...

... then we will keep asking.

It ain't OUR fault you have no rational point.(shrug)

Whoops, my bad. I mistook you for Bo. Not too surprising based on the writings though.

However, note to all fundies - the admission of error. Something few fundies are capable of.

Actually I suspect we'll never understand it because proponents of the concepts can provide nothing but bad philosophical ramblings.

Because in the end, no-one on Earth knows more about God than anyone else does period.

It's certainly portrayed that way.

Not that it makes sense of course.

So you think there is something psychologically wrong with me based on my opinions I have stated here and my linguistic pattern, right? I call that creativity. I play the game of Life. But unlike you, I tend to be drawn to something larger than life. And life becomes great when you look at it that way. It opens up a whole new perspective.

Dude, are you in denial too or you just want to be cool? lol.

To be honest, I don't really like to go to church or throw bible verses here to preach. But that doesn't make it cooler than the high-minded ones. It just makes me feel more connected.

No, I don't think it does. If you define intelligence as a measurable quantity, then it must be finite, while stupidity, potentially having a measurable value of zero, would be a divide-by-0 value of infinity.
Just saying.
Now, if you consider the possibility of negative intelligence, you'll have to think with real numbers, but that might be assigning a bias to the term "intelligence", so really, it may be better to stop finding intelligence where there is none!.....other than in bad poetry!
While you might consider the Universe a refection of negative intelligence... I think I'll stick with the opinions of people like Edison and Einstein on such matters.
