You are quote mining at best, that means you are lying.
Come on, even an idiot like you should be able to do better than that.
Ahh! liar, the first line of defense of your religion.

What a lying sack of shit.
Please no fairy tales. Links to articles are okay, but there are idiots here who will believe any lie that is told against evolution.
Here the liar defense is used again in concert with an insult, idiot, though fundie and creatard are the standard defense mechanisms.

... I don't expect creationists to look for the evidence for evolution.
Thats where you are mistaken.

Jesu(s) said "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world." [John 4:1]

So Christians should be willing to LOOK FOR SIGNS OF CREATION BY ANY MEANS EFFECTIVE; because if God is Almighty, He will not be limited to creating any single way.

Most of your conception of religion and God seem to be fueled by mere heresy and prejudice.
Subduction Zone wrote:
Why do you idiots expect us to look for your evidence?
We dont.

I just brought that up to show you that you are only seeing one side of the picture; and you are bound by education and ambition to keep limiting your view to the one side that is convenient to you.

Arguing for evolution is not arguing against god in the least.
I know that.

Evolution could also have been used by God to create the universe.
Subduction Zone wrote:
There are many Christians who believe the theory of evolution. They know that Genesis is myth and nothing more.
You seem to have the same attitude that Pope Urban had when Galileo showed that the Earth was not the center of the universe. He felt that his god was under attack by Galileo since the Bible clearly states that the Earth does not move and that it is circled by the heavenly bodies.
Thats because they were idiots.

If God is Almighty, He can do whatever, however, whenever. So there would be no need to debate about whether or not the earth was the center of anything, anywhere.

P.S. The person that KNOWS that Genesis is a myth cannot be accurately called a Christian.
Subduction Zone wrote:
Strange how most creatards accept the fact that the universe is not geocentric, yet they still doubt the science of evolution.
The fact that the earth is not geocentric has nothing to do with evolution of species if you ask me (so dont mention it).

Are you tired of typing now or did your lunatic switch just flip?

How will you show that the universe would work just as well without God?

Have you created the universe that works well without God yet?

Or have you isolated God and placed Him outside of the universe so that you can know that it works well without Him?

Perhaps you're a miner.
Don't stop there, use all your religious defenses.

1. Liar.
2. Fundie, Creatard or any standard insult
3. accusations of ignorance and stupidity.
4. explain your own intellectual superiority

Or maybe I should ask you to define "belief" and "back up" and "challenged"?

Nope, you know the rules. Creatards always quote mine.

If they do not give a proper link it is clear that they are lying by quote mining.

Why didn't you find a proper link to prove I was wrong?

Fool, you are assuming the existence of god. You cannot do that.

We can show that there is no need for god in the universe. All observed phenomena can be explained without referring to mythical beings.

What happened to the person that pretended to be rational?

You have not backed up one of your statements.

What is your evidence for the existence of god?

And though HOG may be more intelligent than our average creatard here, he is still dishonest.
He obviously believes in creation by a god of some sort but he will not go into any details of his belief.
Trying to play coy is not being honest. We cannot have a civilized debate if one side is not fully honest from the start.
Also, science can refute a claim if it is well enough defined. He is playing the I won't be specific so you can't debunk my claims game. Another dishonest ploy.
So yes, science cannot "prove" anything. It cannot prove that the universe was made last Thursday complete with false memories and fake evidence. But to believe that is a fruitless belief.
What science can do is tho show how ideas "work". As an idea evolution "works" creationism doesn't. It is a very useful too that is guiding present day medicine, is used in oil exploration, is used even in modern day engineering. Creation as a science is not used in anything.
Creationism does not "work".
Analysis of the preceding defense of subbys religion.

1.He begins with the standard insult of creatard.
2. he then moves over to questioning his intelligence.
3. followed by a reference to his opponents dishonesty.
4.finally he ends up proclaiming the intellectual superiority of his religion being responsible for ,medicine,oil exploration, and engineering?

Obviously your religion explains everything, doesn't it?

Come on creatard. You know what I said.

Here, I will give you another chance.

Clearly state a belief of yours and show some evidence that you are correct. And please. Real evidence only please. And by that I mean evidence that applies to your beliefs and not to other beliefs.

For example the fossil record is evidence for evolution and not creation because evolution can explain it in a manner that fits into their paradigm. To date creationists have not been able to do so.

And bohart, I suppose I need to make it clear. A link needs to be supplied by you otherwise you are guilty until proven innocent. This is not a court of law and the same standards do not apply here as there.

I did leave off part of the quote:

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."

Steven Weinberg

Although, the part I left out didn't change the meaning of the original.... unlike what creationists do
