The New Testament is propaganda written decades after his death by people with various political agendas. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the real Jesus or his life.
Then prove it. You have the burden of proof ... not the dead.

Quite the opposite, my friend. It is you that does not understand the model. As is the case with most people.
Evolution would have almost no support if people really understood the actual science behind it.
I think you've read too much science fiction, friend.
you've already shown you don't understand the concept. youve actually admitted it works in real life and yet you rant on...

You;ve had a bit of time..where are your examples of life that resists change?( outside of cult membgers' minds...)

That is a double negative, did you progress from home school?
So your argument is no evidence? Right!!! How about logic? How about critical thinking? How about NO EVIDENCE? Hmmm
Actually I do have evidence and so does everyone else, as I have told you before and you have ignored that evidence because it does not suite your sensibilities. E=MC^2 proves that no omnipotent (infinite power/energy) being (Revelation 19:6 KJV) can exist in this universe because you exist.
Nope the universe is ***thought*** to be proof of existence of god by those who are not capable of rational and critical thinking and logic. By people who consider the thought and ignorance of bronze age understanding to be more valid that modern knowledge. By people who are unwilling to accept the facts that stare them in the face.
There is no evidence for the existence or non existence of a god. No evidence either way. Now I have no evidence for the existence of a Ferrari ignition key in my purse and guess what, there is NO Ferrari ignition key in my purse.
A question that no one YET knows the answer to, so its silly to guess, right? The thing is the science IS looking for the answer. Godbots arent, they are happy to wallow in their ignorance and continue believing their guess.
I will continue to ask you this question, if truly the bible and Christianity is false, both would have died out of existence, but the reverse were/ are the case. Instead both of them have passed many criticisms to date.

I like how you begin with an ad hominem, and set the stage with hostility.
Viruses do not evolve. They just taught that class to my son in high school. Viruses are a whole study onto themselves that don't fit at all into the evolutionary model, as they cannot even agree whether a virus is alive or not.
In fact, biology is so complex now than it use to be, the very definition of life is up for grabs.
You have no clue what you are talking about, and that is from my 15-year old that just had a class on this very subject.
I'd laugh, if this level of gross unscientific misinformation was not such a total and complete danger to society in general.
And since evolution has NEVER been proven, there is no need. Eventually it will fall into the trash heap along with Eugenics and other defunct theories.
Actually it has been proven. you even provided some of the proof in your talk about viruses. tell us about how htey need to change to survive again...please...once again and then i promise to go to bed!

NEWS FLASH:
The geological column absolutely proves the age of the Earth.
The fossil-record sequence absolutely proves evolution.
(Do NOT start blathering about abiogenesis - that's a whole different matter!)
Absolute proof would require a time machine. But putting forth that an INTERPRETATION of data us absolute evidence, you just outed yourself out as a very ignorant, and arrogant person.

People like you is why we have so many wars and chaos on this planet.

<quoted text>Your description of what a scientific theory is is not correct. one needs corroborating evidence to make a theory. a scientific theory must predict future observations and those must be upheld or the thoery must be altered or thrown out.
why would you try to debunk the scientific method when you don't even understan what it si our how it works?
You just described yet another reason why evolution fails the scientific method.

No predictions can be made.

And yet even Darwin said that his ideas must be thrown out if more evidence is not found.

Still waiting on the evidence.

I love folks who start off with "there is no factual evidence of evolution". Of course there is. Now you may dispute the interpretation of it but to say it doesn't exist is pure bullshit.
Do spend much time in excrement?

Just asking you seem to be an expert in pure bullshit.

Dude.
Once again, someone is confusing a species already natural state to change for climate with some kind of "evolution."
That is not the evolutionary model, which depends on MUTATIONS.
And since biology proves that mutations are very rare, and positive mutations are still even more rare, it is science, not I, that refutes your claim.
Where is that research-paper? And what definitions do you use?
See ...4 pages back.
I'm not the only one that thinks your not worth the time, since you simply do not back up your claims.
And since they all come down to the same issue, what can be easier than showing the study and explain how you use the terms!?

<quoted text>that also, is not factually correct. nice try. again, which parts of it are incorrect?

difficult to force? seriously dude?!?!? we are making new species of plants every year! we have manipulated animals so they glow in the freakin' dark?

you are so far over your idiotic head that you can't even fathom (pun intended..) the depths ( again) of your ignorance.
Yet Science admits that no Marco evolution has ever been observed in or out of the lab.

Micro evolution you can hang your hat on. No big deal, nothing worth crowing about. But go ahead if you must.

Quite the opposite actually, life is constantly changing and evolving all the time. This is way we have so many species and so many different races on this planet.
Evolution makes perfect logical since and its supported by the fossil record. If even one fossil was ever to be found out of order then yes evolution would be disproven but that has never and will never happen ..
So tell me because im Curious, What do you think created life as we know it today??
Only true over a very long period of time, if you can find evidence of mutations.

Not true since humans have been around, which is a very short period of time.

It makes no logical sense when so few mutations occur, and so few of the mutations result in positive natural selection.

The fossil record proves nothing, it is just data to be interpreted like all other data.

As a scientist, I can offer no explanation of the origin of life. No one can if they are honest about the data. At this point, aliens creating us is more likely now than evolution.

As a Christian, God of course.

yes, the predictions were made and they even have happened. the resistant viruses you mentioned yourself..you just can't keep proving youself wrong, can you. Hard not to when the proof of your error is all around you.

where is that evidence of life not changing? huh?

What is your source.(Your yapping so loud)
And what are your definitions for:
1)Current measurable changes.
2)mutation
3) mutations that survive to the next generation.
4) a positive change.
4 a) AND
5)enhances natural selection
6)survives natural selection.
7)that has would take not just million but billions of years.
8) what math would be applicable for an event that is current and spans eons?
The evolutionary model is my source.

Check it out for yourself.

I use only their definitions, I have no opinions of my own.

I,m a forty year old man with a Bachelor's degree in science but your high school kid knows more... Wow OK, damn i guess i wasted a lot of money then .... Hey like they say, you cant fix stupid.. Good luck to you ..
