I find it amusing to listen to these idiots go on chastizing others about sin and then turn around an brag about how good they are at sinning. I guess as long as it is just a body, it doesn't count.

You prove your low IQ with every post.

How old are you? It has been a long time since the Marine Corp was so desperate for officers that they would promote anyone on such a thin basis as an I.Q. test. That would be WWII days or earlier.

As I said, it is much more likely that you are a lying troll. Or that you took a severe blow to your head some time in your lifetime and have lost about 50% of your thinking capacity since.

In contrast you say very little of value and you don't use quotes which, combined, is about as exciting as watching grass grow.

In this thread Evolution is the bad horse and SCP theory is the good one. ;3)

And that is the problem. Your examples are erroneous and the kind of mistakes a child would make. A bit like "heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones". Sounds reasonable. But it's wrong.

In contrast, you will provide proof that the advanced mathematical formulas of the universe were randomly created by invisible number naturalists who themselves were randomly created by random supervisors of randomness. LOl.

Your random creation by non living matter is found wanting which means one should look elsewhere.
“The argument has been repeatedly made that given sufficient time, a genetic instruction set and language system could have arisen. But extended time does not provide an explanatory mechanism for spontaneously generated genetic instruction. No amount of time proposed thus far, can explain this type of conceptual communication system. It is not just complex. It is conceptually complex.”
Biologists J. T. Trevors and D. L. Abel, "Chance And Necessity Do Not Explain The Origin Of Life," Cell Biology International 28 (2004), 729-739.
Good job then that places like Harvard and others are currently actively researching abio via chemistry, a decidedly NON-random process.

Mathematician and geneticist Vladimir Shcherbak.
The mathematician Roger Penrose dismisses the idea that the success of mathematics can be attributed to its survival value, and attributes the accord between mathematics and physics to the underlying rationality of the world. That would explain why Nobel-winning quantum physicist Paul Dirac said,“God is a mathematician of a very high order.”
Ah, well done. Another fundie who hasn't grasped the concept of metaphors.

QM - still working.

Heck we even still teach Newton in schools even though it got replaced by relativity.

Let me guess..... Is it a CODE?
[/QUOTE]

Is ACGT a code? Yes. Invented by humans. And we have 60+ years of biological medical history to back up that fact.

Are the compounds they refer to a code? Not as far as can be scientifically determined.

Possible though. In which case the fundies should be able to tell us exactly what it is and what mechanisms are responsible along with provide scientific evidence of it.

But since your "alternative explanation" is Goddidit with magic that kinda makes any and all evidence utterly superfluous.

Nay, I say! The horse is not dead! It is the eternal horse! Horsey horsey clippety clop!

The 'debate' over whether a god exists or not is ultimately only an exercise in philosphical mastrubation. It's no more provable than whether we're all really trapped in the Matrix. The problem however is that fundies still think their baseless religious opinions are not only scientifically valid, but also relevant to public schools. Both science and the Constitution say otherwise. Fundies care about neither. Hence to this day they still mount PR campaigns and political pressuring to get their religious opinions pushed onto other people's kids because they aren't happy with foisting it on their own.

I have mentioned where the idea that everything started out very simple and then became complex over time isn't what really happens in the real world.
