The 2000 census said there was 3.14 people in the average American family. One has to wonder what happened to replaytime's siblings.
Are you saying that the average American family has pi children? No wonder that we have a weight problem here.

No, 2000 census said we had pi families. 1.4 kids - give or take single parent households and a Topix chainsaw wielder who shall replaytime nameless.

Really? I don't see it that way.
OK, look at this from Isaiah 53;

Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
8 By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.

Isaiah 53 was written in 900 BC. It is the only complete book recovered from the dead sea scrolls in 47'. Noteworthy is this book's extensive coverage of the return of Israel to the land "in one day" (by air, land and sea). That occurred a few months later in 48'. Pretty straightforward SZ.

DF, it didn't take very many posts before you got one of our local trolls to give you a new derogatory moniker. I thought that was very, very, very original. I have never seen that done before and I know no one else on Topix has either.

SBT, I see some similarities. Too bad it is not a prophesy, but rather a statement of what has already happened to Israel as a nation:

No offence but due to how much babbling atheist do online, I assumed they were smoking weed. I thought the same of Rush Limbaugh with his daily 5 hour monologue.

Don't quote out of context.

We do have the facts. We are glad to show that we do.

The next very important point is that we have proved evolution. The vast majority of scientists have looked at all of the possibilities and they agree that the theory of evolution is the correct answer. Since evolution is essentially biology they would be the scientists that you would trust the most. Over 99% of all scientists believe the theory of evolution. That means the few that don't are way off into the fringe.

So, if you want to change anything the burden of proof is upon you.

Now if you are talking about the existence of god, which has nothing to do with evolution. Again the atheists are right. It has always been up to the person making the positive claim to make their case. You are claiming a god exists. This has never been proven in any way. Therefore the burden of proof is still upon you.

Do you understand this? This is very simple logic. Even a fundie should be able to see that this is fair.

Nobody has proved evolution, and even if they proved it doesn't answer how everything began. 99% of people believing something does not make true. Let's just admit we don't know yet...

Yes, evolution has been proven far beyond a reasonable doubt. There is no question about that.

And now you indirectly admit that you have no case by trying to move the goalposts. Yes, we aren't sure how abiogenesis happened yet. That of course does not mean that great progress has not happened.

And 99% of scientists agreeing on an idea is overwhelming. If you want to claim that they are wrong there is an extremely heavy burden of proof upon you.

Of course odds are that you have nothing.

To date, all the evidence supports the theory of evolution. You are right the theory does not address the origin of life. All we do know points to evolution.
