I have neither the time nor the inclination to teach you the basics of the RCC but you are incorrect on just about every count.
I'll research your references as I have time.
Hint: The church is referred to as the 'woman' and the seven hills are 'Rome"

The Mystery Explained
7And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.

Yes, and opposition can never explain away Godly small, outnumbered military troops being triumphant over large, heavily armed ungodly troops. Many times, fog comes about mysterily or a large storm on the seas against the opposition with large, military ships being totally disabled.

This can't be explained away, but they sure try, don't they?

Agreed. It takes a lot of faith to believe in the evolution science fiction. This is why I think that people who can't stand to be wrong, or can't admit they have been following a lie, a false teaching, who do not want to face their wrong doings, these people will viciously attack and call names, hurl insults, twist words and call everyone who opposes them a "liar".

Oh yeah! Have you seen the NOVA science channel trying their best to push their computerized examples of 'ape to human' bologna and by re-arranging and mismatching human and ape arm, leg and skull bones deceptively? Hilarious! Seems that they will try anything to make a monkey out of themselves so they won't have to acknowledge God's creation.

You think evolution threatens our religious beliefs?
That depends on the type of religious person. Yes creationists and fundamentalists are completely threatened by evolution as it tears apart there erroneous beliefs. While your moderate theist isn't threatened at all, typically believing in theistic evolution, ie a god started everything going but used evolution for the diversity of life.

Essentially the moderate theist look at creationists and fundamentalists as the *crazy* and or *racist* uncle that they have to put up with around the holidays.

No, it takes evidence and there is a whole lot of it. It doesn't take much effort to do what you do however.

it takes far more than faith to believe in your proven false god. it takes cult indoctrination and a purposeful denial of the truth.

usually people just make up a new god like your cult did and people switch over to that and then indoctrinate their kids and the whole cult cycle starts over...

You are apprently grossly ignorant as to the complexity of life.
You can rant and spout off ad nauseum in the vain attempts to defend your evo-relgion. At the end of the day, you embrace a theory that is entirely unsupported by science.
Yeah, suckingzones successful experiments lie is one he's been vomiting for years.Its part of his religious defense mechanisms.

There is evidence of evolution within a species but hardly any of change from one species to another. If there is a design in nature, is it comscious of itself as we are?

you mean outside of the huge fossil record of such, right?

Evolution is crashing by the minute.
The collapse of Lamarckism...
The failed junk DNA debacle...
The failed fossil record...
The collapse of genetic determinism...
The proven impossibility to create genetic information through mutations...
The utter lack of even a proposed mechanisms of creating genetic information...let alone absence of any evidence.
The impossibility of abiogenesis...
You are clinging on to a sinking ship...
You'd best follow the rats and jump off.
I note you are merely repeating the same posts you sent 1 month ago, and 3 months ago, and ignoring the fact that most of it has been debunked already, repeatedly, with no successful response from you. Actually all of it.

So you either suffer from Alzheimers or you think lying for Jesus is acceptable.

Going to insist Miller Urey was a failure because microbes didn't wander out of the mix?

Going to attempt to discredit Dubois again, in the vain hope that it will make 40+ H erectus specimens disappear? Going to make the laughable claim that Erectus was in the modern range but ignore Georgicus and Habilis again?

Going to attempt to discredit radiometric dating on the basis that Argon dating is useless for samples less than 100,000 years old, and insist that we should be able to measure the length of a microbe with a carpenter's tape?

Going to ignore the nested hierarchy found repeatedly in the fossil record and comparison of genomes?

Going to keep jumping to new forums presenting the same arguments debunked on other forums, hoping to find agreement with a more gullible audience? Why don't you just go to your nearest fundy church? I am sure they will lap it up uncritically. Be sure to take your picture of a crocoduck with you.
