You are forgetting the words, " image and likeness".
Ants or other creations, except humans are not created in the image and likeness of God.
how 'bout the Neandertals?

oh that's right hominids on the Earth at the same time as humans, but your god didn't create them...hmmm

Were they created by the other gods that your jealous god mentioned ?

<quoted text>your logic is faulty.
i am a living, breathing thing, which we know are capable of intelligence. inanimate objects are not. because i am part of a larger inanimate object does not give that object intelligence.
Do your toenail clippings have intelligence? no.
you do not get to make up stuff and say that is a fact...
So me saying you are part of the Universe, and a process of the Universe is making stuff up?

I'm not trying to insult anyone. don't expect me to refer to your god as divine just because you believe he is.

<quoted text>the evidence points to hominids branching off the great apes line 9 or both of us branching off a common line, to be more correct.)

but it is a fact that humans did not come from two created beings, and certainly not two genetically identical beings, both are physically impossible...we know that didn't happen.
Ya much more likely that we came from one single cell, a self life generating cell. A cell that self life generated when all there was on the planet was rocks and rain.

Wouldn't assuming to know why other people do things be considered a tad smug. why should anyone waste their time with someone like that? would you?

That's incorrect. When talking of an omni point God as in the one in the Bible or Quran or Torah then God should be capitalized.

Look it up you'll see.
Here straight from an atheist web page

<quoted text>what question did you ask me?
if it took this long for stars to create and planets to amass enough heavy metals to be minable and refinable..why would you think there are so many more advanced civilizations than us?
please elaborate on your incredibly vague answer of "experience"...
Does not matter, the human mind is already made its decision. Creation or evolution, two choices....pretty sad. If you knew of a third choice could you accept it....Does your mind have the capability to handle the truth? Most humans do not. It takes comprehension beyond current human levels.Reading and thought are tied together.Regurgitating info you hear or read is natural, being able to think beyond that is exceptional.

saying that because living beings in the universe have intelligence means the universe has intelligence is making stuff up.
inanimate objects do not have intelligence.

Actually, the theory of evolution in no way, shape, or form attempts to discuss how life came about.

i would be open to any idea about how life started if you had something to back it up with...

God would be denied even with overwhelming scientific evidence.
(admitted by more than one evolutionist on this forum.)
So the request is a little redundant, don't ya think?
And of course the reverse is true. We have the proof and yet the creationists just ignore it and fight on, refusing to use reason and logic....sad.

Such an apparent simple process, that science still can't duplicate with all their technological advances...it's not that their not trying...this is the holy grail of science, in which they have frantically been working on day and night for probably over a half of a century now.

There is a third more credible choice.Most humans comprehension levels will not allow such thoughts to permeate their already made up worlds. The God seed has been planted, the bones have been found.....must be true, must be all there is to human existence.........To many galaxies to count.........more to life than humans can comprehend.
