That's nice. But this thread is about evolution and creationism. If you wanna say one of 'em is more educated than me about car mechanics, great. But it's completely irrelevant.

So the question is, when you're "playing the game" how will that game invariably shape you? As Friedrich Nietzsche said, "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."
Well when I'm about to fly a plane into a building I'll let you know.

Ah, but fundamentalism is insane. It's bred by ignorance. Hence people exist who fly planes into buildings and strap bombs to their chests because they were indoctrinated with stupid since birth.

Just accept that the "Alexander the Great" fantasy you had as a kid isn't going to happen, and when you think about the cost, you're probably better off for it. You can't win this debate. You can only survive and adapt.
What are you talking about? The debate was won decades ago. If you're referring to this thread in particular, the debate was won very early on. The vast majority of the fundies on this thread were not here when it started. And they probably won't be next year. But ignorance always comes back. And there will be people around to correct their assertions. You make it sound like I expect some kind of resolution whereby the evolutionists finally convince the fundies their ancient superstitions were unsupported, the thread ended and we rode off into the sunset after saving the world or something. If I ever thought that way I would have been disappointed many years ago.

Cry!
As usual you like to spout on subjects you're totally ignorant of. Yes, the UK is a Christian country with Christian traditions and Christian laws. But you're ignoring the fact that, in general, people in the UK don't tend to think of religion as that big a deal. Very few attend church every Sunday, and even many who would describe themselves as Christians would be accused by you of not being Christian as they wouldn't fit with your particular narrow-minded view of Christianity.

Not that you're intellectually honest enough to admit that, as you demonstrated when you pretended that the world is mostly Christian, despite the fact that even within Christianity there are many sects. And of those, yours is a minority position. But hey, doesn't matter when you can just fudge the numbers for your convenience.(shrug)

Find out and learn about this supreme God.

Actually math requires proofs, science on the other hand requires evidence. And that's not a problem.

Maybe God explained it to him?
Yeah, God did experiment with the rules back then didn't He? After God killed Adam and Eve He decided that everyone else from then on had to die too. But in those days if His plan worked no-one had to die.

Unfortunately His plan didn't come together.

Let's hope the next one does, eh?

Between Christianity, Islam, Bahai, Budhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Shintoism and others, Christianity is the largest, a fact you can not deny.

You are the ignorant, dude.
Christianity do have sects but these sects don't worship a different God.
Christians focus is on God and Jesus christ.

Many people claim to be Christian but very few practice any form of it. When asked they will say they are a Christian. Yet very few can tell you very much about the teachings of Christ. Of course here in America we have a view of ourselves that is pretty hubris filled. We see ourselves as skinny and smart. If only it were true.

From your comments you are gay. God is God whether in Christianity, Islam or any religion. The only difference is worship. Islam believes in warfare unlike Christianity, this could be better explained in the respective founders, Jesus and Muhammad.
