True story bro :D
I'm asking for explanation according to the bible. Apparently, it's impossible to explain it without Science.

That's an honest response. You're presenting a political position as well as a logical argument, looking out for the outsider.
Other than freedom from and of religion, I don't really have a political case. Evolution isn't Liberal or Conservative. It simply is. Just like water boiling doesn't depend on who you vote for. Reality is simply reality.

I don't worry about other people quotemining me, in fact it's happened to me on these forums before.

With that in mind, that's why I find it easier to keep the wording as close to impartiality as possible, but then post a conclusion at the end of the observation. Don't make assumptions that aren't essential to your point when the point is scientific. You can play whatever games you want with the politics, but the science should come first. Sound bites make bad science.
Just my humble observation! ;)
I use actual science to back myself up. But since the fundies mostly only use soundbites, they only need be countered by other soundbites.

So basically I do what I feel like.:-)

Actually pretty much every culture on earth has always said raising a child properly will (usually) result in a more morally upright person.
It didn't take the Bible to point out the obvious.
Every one is subject to their opinion. That is your opinion.

Maybe Evolutionary theory can be reconciled with some other Creation story, but not with the Genesis account.
According to the Genesis account, God created the great whales before he created the beasts of the earth.
Mainstream scientists tell us that the great whales are evolved from the beasts of the earth.
According to the Genesis account, God created the fowls of the air before he created the beasts of the earth.
Mainstream scientists tell us that the fowls of the air are descended from the beasts of the earth.
The bible is known to have errors and contradictions. But so are some scientific theories. The chronology in the creation story suggests that the theory of evolution could be the process how God created everything.

It's more than an opinion. About of third of the world's population is Christian. That means two thirds are raised without bibles.

I do think straight and in straight thinking it is easy to see that you have deliberately tried to screw the questions round a corner so you can ignore them.
You have not answered ANY of the questions, but instead offered a limited scope cop out that ignores human instincts and the desire for pleasure in any way that the CONSENTING humans personally choose. Why was that?
Was it because you don’t have answers? So all you can to is try (and fail) to discredit the questioner with foam and irrelevancies?
Or was it because you feel it your god given right to stick you nose into the life of everyone you don’t agree with?
I will ask again
There is no justification for religion either except for personal choice but that never stopped you – right?
(You never answered that but you proved it to be correct by your actions, it did not stop you)
Does homosexuality effect you in any way?
Do you see homosexuals telling the world that you are wrong?
Now can you say the same for godbots like you?

Homosexuality in all its entirety is wrong, no matter how you paint it...

Sorry, my irony meter went boom listening to you christards
Nope I am only saying that because it’s FACT
Religion is indoctrinated (usually but not always) from birth
Ok honey, what makes you think I am frustrated? Just because I don’t get myself of dreaming of a god does not mean I am frustrated, it means that you life view is severely limited
You cannot deny that a new born does not worship any god and that as the child grows its parents belief (and later other relatives and peers) helps mould that child’s belief system.
You cannot deny that christians worship the first recorded mass murderer and child killer who condoned rape.
Or can you…?
Honey, I am not the one worshipping a genocidal child killer, that would be you… loser
Tell that to the majority of Christians in the UK alone, loner. Lol

Yes I do - claiming moral standards or beliefs which are contradicted by one's own behaviour
I am not the one claiming righteous indignation because I worship a genocidal mass murdering apologist for rape, that’s you
