God cursed that form to become a snake.
That's why Genesis calls him a "Serpent", a lying, treacherous, sly individual.

Well, that does clear up that old indian saying "Redneck type with forked tongue."

Hitchhiking virus confirms saga of ancient human migration
October 21st, 2013 in Biology / Cell & Microbiology

A study of the full genetic code of a common human virus offers a dramatic confirmation of the "out-of-Africa" pattern of human migration, which had previously been documented by anthropologists and studies of the human genome.

The virus under study, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), usually causes nothing more severe than cold sores around the mouth, says Curtis Brandt, a professor of medical microbiology and ophthalmology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Brandt is senior author of the study, now online in the journal PLOS ONE.

When Brandt and co-authors Aaron Kolb and CÚcile AnÚ compared 31 strains of HSV-1 collected in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, "the result was fairly stunning," says Brandt.

"The viral strains sort exactly as you would predict based on sequencing of human genomes. We found that all of the African isolates cluster together, all the virus from the Far East, Korea, Japan, China clustered together, all the viruses in Europe and America, with one exception, clustered together," he says.

"What we found follows exactly what the anthropologists have told us, and the molecular geneticists who have analyzed the human genome have told us, about where humans originated and how they spread across the planet."

Incorrect. What I said did not denigrate science, it's just a fact.

I like your honesty.

There are many here, mostly atheists, that claim some supposed evidence of it exists.

A Christian and a Creationist are different things.

There is evidence that supports possibilities.

Nothing.

But that experiment is not natural, it's forced.

Even if they succeeded in creating life, which they haven't even got close to, that wouldn't mean that life could create itself naturally.

That man-made life would have a creator - man.

Just like man has a creator - God.

Sure, there's evidence to support a possibility, just like there's evidence to support the possibility of alien life or Bigfoot, but that's not evidence.

You can take every chemical, gas, mineral, element there are and throw them all together in water and all you will come up with are a bunch of mixed up chemicals, gases, minerals, elements polluting the water. It would be a safe bet to say they have tried in several million ways and have failed in several million ways. Even with science helping it along, life does not spring from nonlife. But this one time in band camp, 3.5 billion years ago, life came from nonlife all by itself. What a bunch of dreamers.
This one time, before band camp, an (presumably) old being magically pulled a universe out of thin air (though there was no air) and filled an infinite desolate void with infinite galaxies ablaze with beautiful lights. In the center of one of these galaxies he put the earth and filled it with life. Now, all we have to do to repay this being is sing him songs, never doubt him, and give money to those who claim to be his spokespersons. Yeah, talk about a bunch of dreamers.

C'mon people! You're adults, shake off the childhood brainwashing and look at this thing with your own minds.

Jesus H Christ! It was an experiment! An investigation. What would you have them do? Create another universe and sit back and watch? Ridiculous.

There *may* have had a creator but - so far - there no evidence of that.

You may want to take another try at this. Evidence but not evidence? Please resubmit.

Bullshit. There's evidence of God all over the place. Thousands of testimonials are out there for you to read.

It may only be anecdotal evidence, but that's more evidence than abiogenesis has.

There is none. No one can show scientific proof that life can create itself. No one has ever created life in a science lab, even under the most favorable conditions possible. So if "intelligent" human beings cannot create life, how is life supposed to have come into existence by itself?
You write:
"There is no evidence. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. No evidence of any kind that life can create itself, not physical evidence, testimonial, circumstantial or even anecdotal. None."

One can say exactly the same thing about your mythical god.

That probably lands you in the SAME space you think evolutionists are in.

After 2000+- years STILL looking for proofs.

After 150+ years of evolution....getting closer and closer.

I cant be any more clearer than that.
"but, but, but.... it SAYS!!!" You're making a spectacle. Be a man and quit quivering your lip. Once more, Genesis does not say serpent OR snake, but the word that WAS used is synonymous with snake.
English did not come into existence until thousands of years after the Pentateuch was written. If even this glaringly simple thing is over your head then no, you can't make that any "more clearer".
On top of that, if you think that a reptile is "craftier" than a raccoon, you ain't much of a redneck, either.

With that kind of argument, you may be able to write a paper...
There isn't anything to argue, plus - I've read your posts.
When someone maintains that God wrote the Torah in English because he has both a KJV and a NIV Bible, monosyllabic sentences seem to be the most appropriate response.
