No not garbage, you cannot even try to argue against it without spouting undefined nonsense.
What is "THE ALMIGHTY"? What is "POWER"? Or "POTENTIAL" for that matter?
Tell me exactly what I am supposedly denying so that I can see if there is any truth to your claim.
It seems to me like you are merely blowing smoke.
Is it that the terms are undefined, or is it that you are illiterate?

You did high school physics right?

It doesnt even have to be that complicated. Can you as much as read a basic English Language Dictionary?

A simple English dictionary should be sufficient to define the terms if you did not already know them.

Does being a scientific thinker require you to be that retarded; or is it just you?

elements?

No where did you learn about elements?

You seem to accept that.

But I'm assuming that you accept that Carbon, Helium, Plutonium, etc. exists.

Or when you say elements, do you mean Air, Earth, Fire and Water?

You can't even properly spell the word "civilization". You don't have the ability to comprehend truth.
I disagree with Chuckles one hundred percent. But his spelling of "civilisation" is the British variation. Our method of spelling could be said to be "wrong". We tried to improve the spelling of words in the English language in the U.S. but fell shot. The spelling of U.S. English is only slightly better than the traditional English way. Of course our British and Australian members may disagree.

Lets start simple:

Power: "ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something."

So I know that whatever created "Reality" was not mindless nor unintelligent.

Just like the printing press and translating the Bible into the local language was a big problem for the Catholic church.
That's not much of an argument for or against anything. It must be way past your bedtime? Try again tomorrow, wimp.

i think US English may be tougher than British, because US english holds huge usage of sentences/word, which are based on sense and logic.....
for instance, I am up/off,

I know the dictionary meaning of those words. You are using them in a way that is not normal.

So you failed once, don't give up.

What is a working definition of "the power".

Mostly minor spelling differences. In the U.S. we differentiate between the "s" sound and the "z" sound in the middle of a word. So U.S. "civilize", British "civilise". We also drop some letters that are not pronounced, U.S. "program" British "programme". And U.S. "color", British "colour". There are a few others too. British people seem to be unable to pronounce the names of a couple of U.S. car makes. They mispronounce "Chrysler" to "Crizeler" and "Tesla" to "Tezzla". Of course they love the way that we say "Jaguar":^D

Perhaps then you could explain what it is. Prove you have one working braincell, if it's not mutation, then what is it that causes the differences?

...dumbass. They don't mutate.

Too bad you refuse to see things as they really are. You're missing out. There is a HUGE difference between your twisted fantasy life and reality.

That would not be that different. lol

Let's pretend that no mutations happen, then assume your mythology has some merit ... everyone would look identical, because one of the first humans in your myth was a clone of the other.

Now let's pretend there were a hundred different humans from the start, being generous here. After about 1,000 generations they would all again, look identical because of the lacking variation.

No matter how you twist it, you can't mix the same thing over and over again and expect different results, it doesn't work like that.

A gene mutation is a permanent change in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene. Mutations range in size from a single DNA building block (DNA base) to a large segment of a chromosome.

Gene mutations occur in two ways: they can be inherited from a parent or acquired during a personís lifetime. Mutations that are passed from parent to child are called hereditary mutations or germline mutations (because they are present in the egg and sperm cells, which are also called germ cells). This type of mutation is present throughout a personís life in virtually every cell in the body.

Mutations that occur only in an egg or sperm cell, or those that occur just after fertilization, are called new (de novo) mutations. De novo mutations may explain genetic disorders in which an affected child has a mutation in every cell, but has no family history of the disorder.

Acquired (or somatic) mutations occur in the DNA of individual cells at some time during a personís life. These changes can be caused by environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation from the sun, or can occur if a mistake is made as DNA copies itself during cell division. Acquired mutations in somatic cells (cells other than sperm and egg cells) cannot be passed on to the next generation.

Mutations may also occur in a single cell within an early embryo. As all the cells divide during growth and development, the individual will have some cells with the mutation and some cells without the genetic change. This situation is called mosaicism.

Some genetic changes are very rare; others are common in the population. Genetic changes that occur in more than 1 percent of the population are called polymorphisms. They are common enough to be considered a normal variation in the DNA. Polymorphisms are responsible for many of the normal differences between people such as eye color, hair color, and blood type. Although many polymorphisms have no negative effects on a personís health, some of these variations may influence the risk of developing certain disorders
