You spelled Capish wrong.

No, sorry dude, but creation is a non-starter. It doesn't fit into what we know from science.

There is no creator.....

I was responding to xxxoooxxx's comment about awareness. We never mentioned anything about intelligence until you brought it up. What's wrong with you? I think you are the one who had too much to drink.

No, no. He spelled it right. Capish is for those times that you don't feel like going the full Batman with your cape. He is running around in his room with a short foot and a half to two foot cape.

Why he wanted to get that point across to us I don't know.

This divine spark of "I" when we speak is not evolutionary rather poignantly both purposely and instuctionally brought to humankind or humanity in a most interesting way.
As a gift.
Only man can say " I" in fact only we can speak to say I to begin with.
And where does the gift of speech derive its origen?
The Gospel of John Chapter 1.
"In the beggining was the word and the word was God and the word was with God. So it was in the Beginning
Clearly , the beginning was of divine origen. It's evolution our human journey from there proves we evolve as well.
The question today since the advent of the machine and the materialistic conception of the world is are we 'evolving' or de vovling?
No, we are not devolving...just getting pretty damn lazy..:-)

Actually, you were the first to mentions awareness in insects, as i pointed out immediately. can you not even keep track of your own thoughts?

And again, for the nth time, you just posted about insects having intelligence, which i quoted back to you...

Are you really this 'unaware'? are you an insect?

sheesh! it's like talking to a woodtick!

If evolution isn't true then God is a prankster. Do you think God is a prankster?

Evolution is wrong with it's claim that life began in lower forms of creatures and that these gradually changed over millions of years into highest forms, such as humans. The relationship between similar groups of living things is not brought about by linear changes in the environment in which they lived, but they came by the work within the environmental system they were assigned to do. Systems in nature work to reproduce kinds following patterns that are shown and they do this through cycles. The original kind had instrucions to change to accomplish the task if needed.

Take that up with God.
He says he did create Adam.
And something that atheist love to over look. Just like the Bible claims it is totally possible to create Eve from a rib from Adam. And the Rib used is the only bone known to regrow completely if removed. Interesting not bad for goat herders.
Um...could you back up that regrowing rib thing?

Please.

Actually, that appears to be true.

I was surprised too.

As long as a certain part remains intact ( I forget what it's called), then the rib will regenerate.

I guess they use the rib bone for skull repair.

A challenge for Langoliers. Find one non-Christian reliable source that claims an entire rib can grow back. All bones can regenerate to some extent. In fact people can "grow" by having their legs surgically broken and devices that separate the bones are used.
It's true.

I found it on several sites.

From wiki:

Ribs
There have appeared claims that human ribs could regenerate if the periosteum, the membrane surrounding the rib, were left intact. In one study rib material was used for skull reconstruction and all 12 patients had complete regeneration of the resected rib.[41]

I'm as surprised as you.

Both that ribs can grow back and that Lango was right about something.

I don't know which is more shocking.

Who ever said anything about INTELLIGENCE? Again, you are putting words in people's mouth.
Here:
Insects may have consciousness and could even be able to count, claim experts:
Insects with minuscule brains may be as intelligent as much bigger animals and may even have consciousness, it was claimed today.
Having a brain the size of a pinhead does not necessarily make you less bright, say researchers.
Computer simulations show that consciousness could be generated in neural circuits tiny enough to fit into an insect's brain, according to the scientists at Queen Mary, University of London and Cambridge University.

There's hope for you.

Evolution has evidence.

Creation, in the biblical sense, not so much.
