racism?...lol...what?
Eh! Yes.
One moment you are just being your usual panENtheistic henotheistic self, and the next moment they are discriminating you and burning you and your books.

Racists make it up as they go along...well known fact.

On a serious note, read the churchfathers and their discussions.

Christianity is all about money all they want is your money every church you go to they will ask you to make money donations am tell you it's for the church or some charity but they keep a lot of the money for themselves. Ever been to a preachers house? They have nice big houses nice clothes expensive things, why? Because you idiotic. Christians just throw money at them hoping that will get you into a place of eternal happiness which by the way doesn't exist. Ever notice how every Christian is either a criminal of some sort, a child predator, or someone who had a really bad childhood. They think praying will make everything better for them an some will have there stories how they triumphed over everything bad by having faith in The Lord but no god didn't help them god didn't help you he's not real. If you tell yourself your going to do something over and over and over again (I.e praying) then eventually it will happen its like setting a goal for yourself. It's you that's helping yourself not an "all loving, homosexual hating man in the sky"

Oh gosh, almost forgot the first believers!
Four braincells.
One braincell to eat or not, one to kill or run, one to sex or get confused and one for god or not!

So Charles how do you know what dinosaurs believed?

Well put, though I disagree with your assertion that every Christian is a criminal...etc.

I think you know that that's not true and I know I hate it when christians say that all atheists are immoral, hateful, angry, etc.

I try to apply the golden rule better than christians do.

It's usually not all that difficult.

Funny aside.

When I grew up, the golden rule was "Treat others the way they treat you".

I was like, "Ok. Cool."

It wasn't until my later years that it morphed to "Treat others as you'd like to be treated".

Somebody finally figured it out. Still doesn't seem to work that way here, though.

Unless, of course, christians here WANT to be treated like fools.

Ok.

I guess that wasn't THAT funny.

Aren't you confusing hinduism or even the orrible Brahmism with buddhism?
Apropos the bhagavat gita was probably written 150 CE, since that is the time the immigrated (~150 BC) arian (small province in ancient Iran) cow- and horseherds adapted an Indian language to write sanskrit. And then killed the buddhist and created an ancient history for themseves.
A prof has studied this extensively.

Believe...attributions: the truth, what one loves, what one cherishes.
God is real: is giving it a value.
And then we see another set of attributions.
Believe is not based on general concepts, or material knowledge. Some people believe in the devil, a little purple stone, magic.
And they could make the same claims you made, saying it is their believe, god...etc.
We are strugging for pages now , getting you to understand that believe is nothing but the few ideas you dress it up with.
Mind i'm not saying it is meaningless. But to each it's own.
But science can be counted upon.
In summary, science can not answer everything.

Even if that be the case...I fail to see how anyone could consider the process from goo, to complexity of life on earth as a un-intelligence process...it's completely irrational.

Science can not correct your statements. It strives.;p
There are a lot of theories, but suppose we figure it out, uh science figures it out, then you will still owe us the answers to the theological questions about the dinosaurs!
