You should be taken to the nearest house of worship of your choice (if you're conscious) and prayed over.
As it was promised in the Bible that if God is in your heart you will get EVERYTHING you pray for you'll be fine. Although I would then question why you obviously haven't been praying for world peace etc.
Pray over a broken leg, see what happens.
I dont think my belief in evolution and science shouldnt be imposed on others so I would have to carefully consider whether to even phone an ambulance for someone who believes in a god rather than science. If their god exists he will help them.
You are talking about a matter of faith and knowing Jesus. We might not have that kind of faith here in this world, because of so much unbelief. The best medical remedies are the ones that work with the bodies own systems.

We've heard it, yes. It's merely one of a number of different claims.

Unfortunately the authorities won't let anybody get close enough for a thorough examination of it. Terribly inconvenient.

Although a few people with a bunch of animals is hardly a revelation in my book.

There have been a lot of Messiah wannabes, I can't figure out what draws people to them, the real Messiah is a woman but is not interested in starting a cult. She did that thousands of years ago with the family of Abraham. But the Messiah is a "voice crying in the wilderness" and is travailing in childbirth.
You claim your god is gonna come back and murder anybody who disagrees with your insane made up BS. It's just not called murder if God duz it. Because your god is a deranged delusional lunatic. You're not exactly much better.

<quoted text>How do you know the earth wasn't formed from water covered by a dome, like the Bible says?
Because it doesn't contain enough oxygen and hydrogen. And the collapsing dome would have sizzled the Earth too. But then WITH a dome there would have been no sunlight and everything would have died as a result.

DIhydrogen monoxide was the base and it was made firm and the dome spread out over it.

Yes, but in so doing they are effectively denying either one of two things:
1. If they believe that only mutations and natural selection account for all life, they are denying that God directed the creation.
2. If they believe that God directed the transmutation of species, then they deny the proposed mechanisms of evolution as sufficient to explain life.
You've left out the third:

3. If they believe that God directed the transmutation of species, then they believe that god used the proposed mechanisms of evolution as sufficient to explain life.

You're kidding, right? I mean, you don't seriously believe that they found the ark, do you?

I heard an interesting comment on talk radio yesterday. They were talking about the folks in Oklahoma who survived the tornado and were thanking god for saving them. The host of the show asked why god just didn't prevent the tornado in the first place.

Why indeed.

I do understand. What you are saying is that you have no evidence and you have to make up excuses. I can make up tons of BS about UFOs and space aliens and it would be every bit as valid. More so in fact, since technically speaking aliens are potentially falsifiable and verifiable, thus making them scientific.
All of God's people have evidence and you can too if you truly wanted it.

All you have to do is honestly pray and go to His church to connect with God, that is where He will be, for sure.

That’s quite a case of Brainwashed you got going on there, FS.

In fact, that does kind of explain your choice of avatar, albeit being an oxymoron (you’re either free, or your not. Servants are not free, unless they have broken free of servitude.)

You should really consider a more appropriate avatar – instead of Servant, change it to Slave.

Technically speaking, yes. However many understand that their opinion is theological, not scientific. So they only have their own opinions that God is somehow responsible for guiding evolution.
Of course none of this has any bearing on the validity of science. After all, science and theology are two separate subjects. Unlike us, your interest is not in the former, only the latter.
Oh, and just to let you know, every time you keep saying the word "transmutation" to make it sound like you're talking about science you're really just sounding like a d ck.(shrug)
If someone believes in theistic evolution, then why is there an empahtic insistence that naturalism can explain all of the complexities of nature, when there is silent disbelief?

If proposed mechanisms of transmutation are sufficient, then there would be no need for God to "direct" anything.

....and quite a few people feel that way.

Other folks ('Theisic Evolutionists') see those mechanisms of Evolution as part of 'God's toolkit' for imposing his will.

It really is not a difficult concept to envision.
