Not really. You made wrong statements. I told you why they were wrong. Instead of defending your position you called me names. I again offered to continue discussing the subject. You avoided it. Therefore, and especially considering your positing history, it is not unfair to point out quite rightly that you do not have a clue what you're talking about. Whereas I on the other hand am capable of discussing the subject and can back my claims up with scientific evidence.
To which you then reply with your best Nelson Muntz impression.
Yeah, yeah,yeah why don't you just provide a wiki link to the abiogenesis myth, click your heels three times , and repeat life created itself, life created itself, life......

well then, that would also make the writer a moron...since, after all the title of the article is...Early Earth 'was covered in water'
which by the way...would make you a bigger moron.
Actually no, that ultimately makes you the biggest moron for not reading your sources before posting them. If you had even a small amount of honesty you'd just fess up that you never actually read anything and just plucked the first link with a title that sounded good .... but thank you for demonstrating that you have no honesty either. So you are a dishonest idiot now.

I hear the Kentucky creation museum is so popular that it is expanding and adding two new wings. Continuing with their established theme,one wing is for Santa Claus and the other is for the Easter Bunny .Three fairy tales in a row .

Why do you still insist everything must be created? Is ice created, or the result of water losing all it's energy?

No it isn't. In fact it's the complete opposite.
You can't have free will in the face of an all powerful all knowing entity.
Worship or burn. And God already knows what you're gonna "choose" because choice is an illusion.
Either that or God is not God.
In the garden-story god is not all knowing and the jewish interprtation is about free-will. Free to accept religion.
or like moses would say: by seeing the grace of our ways others are free to accept.

Ideas of all-knowing/present/mighty etc. came with christianity.

But exactly those ideas can easily be disproved. Christine M going into history on this board with E=mc^2. And kittenkoder with evolution having no direction.

You still cannot admit you made a mistake. This is why no one takes you, or any other religious person, serious. Your fear of being wrong is what fuels your delusion, it's what prevents you from seeing reality. You simply cannot admit you don't know something, anything, at all, you just have to pretend you know, you have to pretend you are correct, even when the evidence that you are wrong is out for the world to see.

Knocking over tin soldiers again, eh? Just can't resist.
My point to Charles when I bought up the analogy of homosexuality to pedophilia was that literal interpretations of the bible are useless.
....but you had to knock over your tin soldier. It's what you came here to do. You still serve your master.
Oh so your beef is with Charles!
Well he can use some more flack...dûh

But not that anyone else noticed, given the way you implicate everybody.

Answer the question, is all ice created, or the result of water molecules losing energy?

You probably do not understand that subject either.
So where in this great state do you live?

I hope it's not the cities.

well the obvious point was...if the steady state theory was the basis of your argument...it would simply nullify the idea of a the universe having a beginning...where as, the big bang theory is basically 'creation' without god.
To imply that the formation of, and the on going processes of the universe, has nothing to do with evolution is quite unrealistic.

Present a link, because "ice out" doesn't do much in Google.

Now i get the fudge...the concestor idea is what you do not get.

Like some others have the narrow definition of evolution as only reproduction and forget variation.

Or some here speaking "god bless", as if god was invented to bless stupidity.

No, neither one has anything to do with evolution. In both there is more than enough time for evolution to occur.

It is known now how the universe could create itself without breaking any laws of physics.

Another pointless post by Langy. And yes, I have been in the Soudan mine. It is cool in more ways than one.
