See Rom 11:10. also take heed Eph 4:18"Having the understanding darkened being alienated from the life of God thorugh the ignorance is in them because of the blindness of their heart" That describes perfectly one who scoffs at God's word.

No he didn't That's a lie told by a nice Christian lady called Lady Hope, who was never NEAR Darwin, according to Darwin's family.

Do you belief we stem from the apes.if so why are there still apes/monkeys?,taking evolution as what it is..
Humans and monkeys and modern apes all evolved form earlier members of the ape family.

There is no reason why there should be no monkeys because humans evolved.

No he didn't. That was the Lady Hope lie. He started out theist and ended up more like an agnostic.

Not that anyone's religious opinions have any bearing on the validity of science.

Humans ARE apes. We're just a different species than other apes.

If modern Americans stemmed from Europeans why are there still Europeans?

Yup, there really could be UFO's coming down abducting people for weird cross-breeding experiments involving people, aliens and various farmyard animals. Keep ALL options open.

Probably a way to explain the beginning of life to what would have been peasants at the time.

Have you researched the matter like we atheists have; or are you just repeating your mentors words and thoughts??
One thing about Christian mentors....they don't want their people to look at real evidence.
Atheist and Theist are two recognisable groups. No one is better than the other.

Congratulations, you just contradicted yourself.

we study his word to learn about him and what our duties toward HIM and our fellow man are.
You don't have His Word. The ONLY person who ever did was Moses. And even that was hearsay.
Patriot wrote:
The Bible is the blue print on how we need to live and be acceptable in his sight.
No it isn't. That's why you lied. You don't give a crud about God, all you care about is shunning anyone and anything that doesn't fall in line with your baseless religious opinions then assume you can repent after you're dead so you can get into paradise.(shrug)

Neanderthal fossils to date remain debatable( controversial).
No they don't. Especially since we have their DNA.

And so do you.

You can not rule out the possibility of a first man and woman.
Yeah we can. We did it in 1950 when Crick proved evolution. We CAN trace our ancestry to a single couple, but they weren't the only couple. And they probably didn't talk to talking lizards.

Science help to search for evidence and data; give it time.

But the parables and allegories effectively embody concepts which are embedded in the fabric of reality.
While the parables and allegories are effective in the purpose intended for them, you have nothing to talk about; for the function of language is to communicate meaning.

As above, you hold to the sensitive spot hypothesis leading to eye development. This is a tough sell on the geologic chart, where trilobites at the bottom sport eyes found to be very complex, can even correct for underwater aberrations. No transitionals' have been found supporting the magical concept of softspot to eyes. For your theory to be proved there should have been thousands and adaptive types as you claim, but there are none, and the cell's closed mechanism doesn't support it. Yes, if I repeatedly show pictures of such a tale to a trusting child they will eventually believe it. Thatís your brainwashing, and those who practice it will one day pay the price for it. Utter foolishness!
I think you have missed or ignored my point regarding the past study of fruit flys in attempting to generate positive mutations in the DNA. I repeat for you - after thousands of said generations (to speed up generational time)being observed in controlled tests, the concept of evolution failed to produce any such needed changes at all. So what is observed in the cell mechanism is what we get. You assert that that's not enough time, time, time the magical maker!
Variation in pure "Kind" gene pools is a different matter and is often interpreted or proposed as evolution, but is macroevolution. That doesn't provide the evolutionary leap of an opossum to a lemur that can reproduce,(which is exactly what current human evolution lineage drawings show). Evolutionist now claim this all happened quickly out if sight somehow, leaving no evidence. Wishful thinking.
A correction to the last paragraph, "macroevolution should be "microevolution".

CBOW? Lying? A believer in God and the Ten Commandments (presumably the 9th too)?

I'm shocked. Shocked I say.
