When I said "English never ceases to amuse me" I was referring to the English language.
I know Brits are hot. I love British bands. ;-)
Sorry for misquoting you.
Which of the bands do you love?
Is it Subwaymaniac, the Beatles, the Police, the Maroons, etc,?

God, Satan and other spirit beings are mortals unlike humans, plants and animals that are mortals.
I am talking about mortals.
You mean God, etc. are 'immortal'

Life come from non-life. We are made from dust. I've brought this up many times. It says so in your bible.

Not guesses Charles, there is solid research and science behind them.
I take it you are not going to read the pages??
Those pages are just the same old trash that has no basis(foundations).
God created humans. Humans never evolved from any non human form(s).

Ok. Who created the dust?
The dust( human) did not came on its own, but it came through God( the source of life and existence). God is immortal and has no creator.

Thanks Cybele, for the correction. I meant, God and other spiritual beings are immortals unlike humans, plants and other animals.

It could be a Jewish conspiracy.
If again, Pliny the elder was there, he must have passed it to Pliny the young. Ok?
You don't need a conspiracy to make a single story about something. Hercules wasn't a conspiracy, just a myth, same with your Jesus person.

Cons-piracy is a double negative word. Can you think of a positive opposite for it? For ex. con-science vs. pro-science

What have you been proving, except that you are clowns who would make clowns of us all?
Can't address one paragraph without parsing, eh? Well, nobody is out to make a clown out of anyone, but if clowning seems to be the case, consider your parsed up point of view.

There are no cults based on scientific ideas. If they were scientific ideas they would not be cults. They are therefore simply referred to as cults, whether they be religious or not.

So if that be the case, why did I see a program on the history channel that's was tracing the lineage of Jesus?

Don't think you need to worry about any "atheist antibiotics" any time soon at any rate.
your trippin' dude...all concepts are the result of thinking. Just because the chemicals are there that support brain activity, doesn't imply the concepts.

I correct myself from my earlier posts, in that animals may be capable of abstract communication, but they are unable to communicate *complex* abstract ideas. There is an gorilla for example who has learned sign language, whether or not it's learned enough to grasp the concept of theism I don't know. But unfortunately it can't communicate it to other apes. But like I said, the concept of religion is explained in evolutionary terms as an extension of altruism, and it developed further from there.
It may be that in the future other species may develop the concept also. Only time will tell. Of course we don't know that dolphins and whales have not done so already. We're just not smart enough to understand their language.
It's not there is it...it's a soul attribute of humans. In other words,your only attempting to connect imaginary dots to support evolution without proof.

And by your standard's,without proof, it's a invalid argument.

What if religiosity is really a symptom? lol
Mainstream scientific ideology seems to think so.It's seems to be diagnosed as a delusional disorder.( as Apparent by the posts on this thread...lol)

Seemingly,the recognition of an intelligent process behind the Universe, is also some sort of delusional disorder.(per mainstream scientific ideology)

They ARE more predominant in the great ape species.
Specifically, humans.
Subjective classification of similarities made up by science, does not make humans ape, no more than it makes him a fish, if you believed that humans evolved from fish.

Before reading past the dotted line, I would like for anyone reading this post to answer four questions:
1. What is attractive to children and good for children?
2. What is unattractive to children and harmful to children?
3. What is attractive to children but harmful to children?
4. What is unattractive to children but good for children?
…………………………
For question number 1, you probably list milk, outdoor play, friends, and healthy affection.
For question number 2, you probably list wild animals, sharp objects, and high places.
For question number 3, you probably list junk food, excessive TV and video, and illegal drugs.
For question number 4, you probably list school work and penicillin shots.
If children were conceived in Original Sin, we wouldn’t have any answers to questions 1 and 2.
If children were conceived in the image and likeness of God, we wouldn’t have any answers to questions 3 and 4.
If children were conceived as blank slates, we wouldn’t have any answers to any of the questions.
What, then, is the nature of children?
If you take a close look at the answers, you will see that the first two tend to be items which have been present since time immemorial. The last two tend to be modern inventions.
My stand, then, is that children are created for life in the primeval past. It would be nice if children were created for life in modern civilization, but modern civilization came into being at a fast pace and evolution has not had a chance to catch up.
Is your conclusion that children would be better off living in a teepee on the plains eating raw buffalo liver until the god of evolution catches them up to todays pace?

People "like me?" What are you implying? Also, you fail at English, you really fail at it. You should learn what words mean before using them.
