We've been through the multi-verse thing. See the universe is ALL matter, time, space and energy. So by definition multi-verses would have to be part of the universe.


You assume to say you know, when your explanation is "god did it"
So tell us how you know came about this infallible logic, that a multiverse would have to be contained within the universe, instead of this universe being a part of an unknown greater universe.
Being this knowledge is not written or contain within any writing
and is currently beyond the scope of human reasoning.
Please tell us how you could determine this.

Or is it you wish to cover the bases for the non existent god you believe did it, the one who you cannot prove even exists, but use as the morons explanation of everything.

People keep saying that yet they are unable to defend any position on the matter. They say, "it has been proven" or "go read a book" or "take a science class" or "your mamma is so fat..." blah,blah

and you are no different, I'll prove it.

Ok, danny what evidence do you want to defend first?

Information Theory?
DNA/RNA?
Genetics - mutations?
Cosmology?

Ah. So you're in the camp that the universe always existed.
You don't really don't get the idea of "no time before time" and "no place before space", do you? Did "the null set is not zero" give you headaches in 8th grade algebra?

I don't think anyone on the evolution side has ever said that they cannot defend a point. Sometimes the claims of various creationists is so foolish that a basic class in science is recommended for them.

What part of the theory of evolution don't you understand?

Actually I can and do have it both ways. I believe we do all know oneself, just as early philosophers said. You know you don't have a soul and I do know I do have a soul. Atheist are against inspiration. I wouldn't desire to be in an atheist ran country, and obviously you choose not to either. For an agnostic to try to recruit a gnostic. That is as backwards as it gets.
Don't confuse simultaneity with duplicity.

I am interested in evolution. Everything I have read on the subject supports the theory. So whatever you claim is up to you to support. Give it a go, maybe you will provide something I haven't seen yet.

Is the use of derogatory words part of the principles you espouse? Once bad language and name calling fails, do you have a final solution?

Oh, so you are willing to discuss principles without being derogatory? I accept.

Where do you get your principles and how do you know they are right?

No, you are here to claim evolution is wrong, so I think it would be best that an Expert start it off.
