<quoted text>Do you think Obama dropped the ball by not supporting the democratically elected government in Egypt? Many people in England and America do not like their leaders, but they do not support a military strong man who wants to take them out, they simply vote in the next election and hope for the best. What are your thoughts?
What if that democratically elected govt is working outside the constitution to destroy any chance an opposition might have had in the next election cycle as well as actively fomenting violence against a religious minority and seeking to disenfranchise them as well as remove them from any positions of responsibility in government?

Still think we should support them?

Every question in the ME is invariably a hornet's nest of complications and what administration has ever NOT dropped the ball dealing with the ME?

Funny, since you are a known liar. However we ARE all the product of chemistry. Only way to avoid that is to be a reality denier.

The hope that Democracy will give the people a chance to get out of such a violent leadership may be considered to be a false position but the hardships America suffered for its constitution has paid off for over 200 hundred years now. What do you think?

Again you are only telling halve truths. Yes while many Christians believe in evolution they hold strong that evolution is only possible because God, who created life made evolution possible.
That's perfectly acceptable.

You claim that evolution and abiogenesis are separate

and that evolution does not say there is not a God that may have created life but in 98.9% of your comments you show that you don't believe in God
Which has zero bearing on the validity of evolution either way.

All life is related, right. Whether abio was muddy, wet or something else is unclear, but it was certainly a chemical process.

You talk in two tongues and then expect people to take what you say serious. Can you see why many don't?
We can see that many people who don't know or care about science don't take anything seriously if it doesn't jibe with their baseless religious opinions. It still has no bearing at all whatsoever on the validity of science.

I see in your comment you used "kind". Explain what you mean by kind and define it.
We don't need to. That's YOUR job.

Is a daffodil a "kind" of narcissus?

Or is it a "kind" of Amaryllidoideae?

Or is it a "kind" of Amaryllidaceae?

Or is it a "kind" of Asparagales?

Or is it a "kind" of Monocot?

Or is it a "kind" of Angiosperm?

Or is it a "kind" of Plant?

Or is it a "kind" of Archaeplastid?

Or is it a "kind" of Eukaryote?

Or is it a "kind" of something else entirely since nothing of what I just mentioned is relevant anyway since it's all based around the atheistic lies of Satan's puppet Darwin?

I once believed that democracy was a universally applicable system.

I now believe, with misgivings, that it requires a compatible cultural base to succeed and I see no evidence that this base exists in this region or can be made compatible with Islam.

Perhaps in some distant future when Islam has withered as a force, democracy can work in places like Egypt. Never mind 200 years of the USA. Think of the preceding millennium from the Magna Carta to the disintegration of the catholic monopoly to the emergence of empirical rationalism and then allow that the Islamic world has not experienced this tradition and finds our way of thinking more alien than we realise.

Wrong, Like I said, such a shame. Or perhaps you are merely lying.

You have constantly shown that you are not the most honest of posters. Which would mean that Dan was right.

Everything would have died. A flood of such proportions would have wiped out the planet to an extent that it would have taken another few million years to recuperate.

Your age old argument is an ambiguity or, more specifically, an "appeal to ignorance"!
The burden of proof is on those who claim god(s) exist. Since there is no proof of the existence of god(s) which is NOT subjective, then it is up to those who claim god(s) exists to provide proof. We do know that thus far no test has proven the EXISTENCE of god. That's why the burden of proof is on those who wish to prove the existence of god(s).
Eventually one should come around to understanding that belief in god(s) is, simply, belief and beliefs arenít facts! If it works for you, go with it. After all, if that's what you believe, there's no point in denying it.
