I would not say thre is no god for sure. I say the chance there is a god is very very remote. And if there is a god it is nothing like the bible says...A god like in the bible deserves no worship at all.

The God of the Bible loved you so much that he sent his Son to suffer for you, so that you could inherit eternal life in the Kingdom of God. Praise his name!

Charles, how did we get from the subject of supporting the teaching of Evolution in public schools to the question of whether or not there is a God?
You jump from one subject to another so often you make me dizzy.

Sorry, that was Free Servant.
I wish we were allowed to delete posts.

But the question still stands:

When I was teaching a class, I said, "Now remember, children, only a fool is ever absolutely sure of himself."
A student raised his hand and said, "Are you sure of that, Mister Robertson?"
I beat my fist on the desk and said, "Absolutely!"

Sofar that only means you will convert to an unproven undefined state of certainty.

Hours ago I caused an international incident.

I sincerely apologize to all innocent bystanders.

I further assure you that my residence will be and always has been the recipient of any and all nuclear warheads.

I live in a state of angst.

But I still have to bow down grovel and be a slave..Oh and if I forget to ask for forgivness for one thing before dying I burn in heel forever....WHAT A MEAN NASTY GOD YOU HAVE....He is not worth worship.

If I had a god I want who is all about love and who helps me and would never hurt me.

yeah, yeah..re-hashed old myth from previous religious cults.

Not one shred of proof of any soul, or spirit or afterlife. none at all. just a myth to prey off the fear people have of dying.

Not at all. Dogs ADAPTING to their environment is evidence of adaptation, not evolution or the model.
The fact that many breeds are, well, CREATED, specifically argues against evolution.
Adaptation is not evidence of positive mutations at all. Not even the evolutionists assert this, only the foolish layman that does not understand the model would make such a dumb error.
No that is the method for evolution. adaption to one's environment.

Indeed, nice try.
"a religious fanatic buys onto a cult with no evidence whatsoever."
You are deliberately, and with dishonesty, mixing "religion" and "cult" into the same sentence, as if they are interchangeable.
Nice try indeed. We can now safely count you out from all future rational and logical discussions.
hardly dishonest at all. it is you that is beoing dishonest with yourself if you do not admit that religions are all cults. that is exactly what a cult is. it is why we made up that word...

To be fair, I've always maintained that I am Agnostic. I dont know (nor can anyone, really) that a Supreme Being wxists.

But if there IS such a deity, it is MY impression that it would certainly NOT be the cartoon variety god (small "g") as depicted in the Bible.

**MY** God would be much bigger than that one.

I respect persons of faith. I really do. But dont go foisting YOUR favorite deity on others, or try to redefine reality (including science & history) so that it conforms to a set of bronze-age campfire stories that have been proven innaccurate many times over.
