You know nothing of my religion, and I'm not interested in debating religion as you are. Your bigoted statements only indicate that you are a religious zealot pretending to be interested in science.
what is your religion? do you not want to "debate" it as you know it has already been proven to be a myth?

I am only bigoted against idiots who argue from religion rather than from science.

I have said many times that evolution does not debunk the idea of god, nor does it debunk Christianity. It only debunks the fundamentalist interpretation of Genesis. We know there was no "Adam and Eve", nor was there a worldwide flood, and any local flood would not wipe out mankind. Nor were there two million Jews in Egypt. There is a lot of garbage in your Bible, that does not necessarily mean the whole thing is garbage.

So then you admit that "ID" is mythology.

If someone publishes an article claimed to be "scientific", and references corroborating dating methods such as "sedimentation rates", he should document the premises upon which those methologogies are based and particular why they should be considered rock solid. The fact remains, ANY dating method of something purported be be 45,000 years old REQUIRES unprovable assumption, because no historically proven artifact of that age exists.
Where are sedimentation rates mentioned in this article?

the bible certainly proves that the god tha cult created does not exist...

their own myths disprove their cult.

it is not bigotry when you can show factual reasons to be wary of a group of people. if one's religion tells them that people of another race are inferior, they are still racists. bigotry thinly veiled behind the guise of religious freedom is still bigotry...

I have never argued from religion. You are always bringing it up. You don't know what my views are on Adam and Eve, the worldwide flood, or the Bible.

How do you know my religion has been "proven to be a myth" when you don't know what it is?

I thought you DarwinBots acknowledged that God cannot be falsified. Why, then, are you claiming that a religion has been "proven" to be a myth?

I will not debate my religion with blaspheming religious bigots.

You are a consummate bigot, Woodtick.
YOu have assumed that I am a cultist, without even knowing what my religion is.

You don't have to say what you believe. That is clear by how you answer posts. Your arguments are never based upon science, they are based upon the misunderstanding of science that all creatards seem to have.

If you believe otherwise why not clear up the issue?

So then ID is myth. That leaves you with only naturalistic causes and effects, in other words, evolution to explain speciation.

Certain beliefs can be falsified. The concept of god as a whole cannot.

Of course it is possible to show that god cannot be omnipotent nor omniscient using basic logic. Of course even the Bible implies that. Why would Satan oppose God if he were omnipotent?

you do have serious comprehensions issues. I did not say that. i asked if that is why you can't debate your religious cult...

I am not claiming it. it is a fact. the known religious cults of today have been proven to be myths. their gods have been proven to be myths. this does not mean there couldn't be some god out there somewhere, but that discussion can only start when the first teensy weensy shred of evidence that might even possibly suggest that maybe there is a god surfaces...when you get that first teensy shred, give us a call...
