it's called computer simulation. No walking fish ever existed. I've had genetically engineered pet fish and it's hard to tell which ones are normal and which ones are not. With this technology, I know you evolutionists are going to force it to support delusional Darwinian theory. Nice try!
No these are real fish.

And yet still no proof, using the scientific method, to disprove the existence of said "magic". Your opinion is just that. Opinion. It is not fact.
No Adam and Eve is fact...not my opinion at all. Talk to a scientist who's field is DNA, archaeology, or paleoanthropology.

Seriously?! You're going to sit there and deny ridiculing and condemning theists for nothing other than being theists? You're gonna sit there and deny accusing all theists of being ignorant fundies who seek only to persecute and otherwise harm their fellow man? You're gonna sit there and deny blaming the sins of the few on the many? You're gonna sit there and deny your desire to rob millions of their constitutional right to the freedom of religion just because you don't agree with it? You're gonna sit there and say that you don't discriminate against theists in the scientific community no matter how brilliant they may be? You're gonna sit there and deny questioning their objectivity when you yourself, as an atheist, refuses to view the beliefs of others with the same objectivity? Irregardless of the fact that you cannot, in fact, use the scientific method to disprove the existence of the very God they believe in? Give me a break.
Wow! how'd i mioss this one? you went off on a complete little tizzy there.

how is my personal ridiculing of people believing iin a cult that has proven to lie to them repeatedly, forcing my beliefs on an 'unsuspecting public'?

No one in the US is being robbed of their right to religion in any way, shape or form?

and i do view the beliefs of otheres witht eh same objectivity as I view anything.

glad you got htat off your chest?

Not yet guy, but we CAN use the scientific method to disprove Adam and Eve....and we have. Talk to a scientist whose field is DNA, archaeology, or paleoanthropology. By the way the reality of Adam and Eve is necessary to Christian dogma.

"Yes, our science can be wrong but is self-correcting. Religion is wrong and not self-correcting—unless it is corrected by science, as in the case of Adam and Eve, evolution, and a hundred other formerly solid tenets of faith.

The purpose of studying evolution never was, of course, to disprove the existence of God. It was to understand how modern life came about, and when. If it disproves scripture or militates against a loving God, well, that’s too damn bad for scripture and God. It is silly to pretend that evolutionists are doing their work with a secret aim of knocking down religion. That result is an unintended byproduct.

Guy? My vagina says otherwise, pal. Okay. So you don't believe in Adam and Eve. Cool. What evidence do you have to disprove that exactly? I'm curious.

"Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Blah blah blah" Nor have you been able to use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. Opinion doth not facts make.
