Rehash? Jesus lived and said the things he did, but the crucial and significant difference lies in his death and resurrection, power over death, power to live. Choose to believe or not, Doesn't matter to me. Besides, if it is "just a rehash", why not live by those solid principles and teachings.

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 ?
Neanderthals!
Another guess or projections.
Human is human and seen is believing.

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?
No.

Produce proof of a deity, and I'll change my beliefs. Naturally.
To do otherwise, as you do, would be an insane denial or reality.

Of course, if the deity in question is the Abrahamic one, I'm immediately joining the Resistance.

<quoted text>
Do You Capitalize the Word "God"?
One of the most common questions people ask about religious words is whether to capitalize the word “god.”
The name of any specific deity is capitalized just like any other name, so when “God” is used to refer to “the one God,”(in other words, in any monotheistic religion) it is capitalized.
For example, you’d capitalize “God” in this sentence:
Some Christians give thanks to God before every meal.
When referring to gods in general, however, or using the word "god" descriptively, keep it lowercase:
The Romans believed a god named Jupiter ruled the heavens.
The Greek gods were always causing trouble for humans.
The same rule holds true for Yahweh, Allah, Zeus, and the names of gods in other religions. They are capitalized.

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists. If such an atheist had so little respect for another person, why even waste the time writing to them in the first place, much less deliberately trying to hurt them at the same time? "
I generally use "deity" - and all gods are the same.

Where in space? Can you point them out?
Of course you do know amino acids are not alive right?
Oh, dear.

From NASA: http://www.nasa.gov/topics/solarsystem/featur...

"In the study, scientists with the Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., analyzed samples from fourteen carbon-rich meteorites with minerals that indicated they had experienced high temperatures in some cases, over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. They found amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins, used by life to speed up chemical reactions and build structures like hair, skin, and nails."

From the IOP: http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/2003...

"...the discovery of glycine is the first step in establishing the crucial link between amino acids in space and the emergence of life in the solar system or, indeed, elsewhere in the galaxy. The molecular spectra seen in interstellar gas clouds closely matches those found in comets and meteorites, and comparing them could in principle allow astronomers - or exobiologists - to trace the origin of the Earth's early chemistry to its parent gas cloud."

From almost 10 million results in less than a quarter of a second.

And of course amino acids aren't alive - they're just essential to life as we know it.

There is no proof of that.
A mere guess of what might have been 4 billions years ago.
Rain and rocks that's all there was.
No atmosphere, no air, no oxygen.
Just rain and rocks.

Unlike what some crazy clueless yahoos might say. Evolution is fact and has been proven over and over again. And if anyone thinks they can disprove it, wright it down, get it peer reviewed, and collect your nobel prize and the millions of dollars being offered by several organizations to dis prove it...

End of story ...

Yes fossil records do support evolution. The fossil record supports the ascent of homo sapiens for about 4 million years in an unbroken chain of transition. The genetic record goes even further.
My hobby is the study of a small section of that 4 million years. Cro-Magnon man, only a few tens of thousand years but there is considerable evolutionary skeletal and cranial difference between those early h. sapiens and modern h. sapiens.
Its not what someone told me but what I can see with my own eyes, feel with my own hands and measure using my intellect.
In my understanding of those studies I have also looked (with my own eyes) at the fossil and geological evidence that takes me back half a million years.
The record exists, I have seen some of it, it is not that someone told me its that I HAVE SEEN IT
P.S. the skull you see as my avatar is a transitional artefact. I have held it, I have examined it, I have compared it to a modern skull of the same species and I have compared to fragments of a 38,000 years old skull o the same species. It lies in between, it is transitional between the two. That species is us, homo sapiens, human beings.
Totally Agree !!!

And hey you cant argue with that Yahoo, he thinks he knows it all and only what he know is true despite scientific evidence that says other wise...

I dont really watch much TV but kids means its usually on in the background. Shame I was busy though I like the Horizon programmes.

Dont know much about the commercialism of TV over the pond but here there is the freeview or freesat options which as you can guess from their names are free.

Wrong, more and more information will NEVER educate you.

Yup, thats life, you live then you rot (or burn) and eventually every single atom of your body will go into creating a new star. Great aint it?

<quoted text> God almighty is the first or beginning( creator) and the last or end( judgement) also known as the Alpha and the Omega. Go on with your ignorance.
Nope.

There were several hundred, probably more than a thousand gods before your first god popped up. Jeessus fooking christ on a crutch, even your babble admits to about 30 odd of them so you appear to be calling your babble lies right?

So tell me who is being ignorant here? Me who can list the gods that show up in mythology BEFORE your god was even thought of or you who makes your statement from the point of incredulity

And as to what you want to adopt the Greek language for is entirely up to you.

Bull.

Shit.

What "new discoveries that here to fore (sic) was thought impossible and US patents" are attributed to to your private, little philosophy?
