This verse does rather suggest it's a snake.
3:14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Lol.

I've asked this question a dozen times, never getting an answer.

What logic would it serve for God to curse a snake to become a snake?

my whole point was your inability to use logic.
You did not say 'it can be'.

You said "a fingerprint at a crime scene is direct evidence of that person being at the crime scene"

I understand, your ego is in the way.

what logic would even think a proven false god makes any difference in the real world?

Oh, and they're delicious.
i've heard of people eating barnacles also...they're not crustaceans are they? those will make me turn blue and die....

Grolsh is very good. Don't know about that other one. Bitburger Pils has always been a favorite of mine since my Germany days. Now days, mostly Yuengling (after two years of convincing my local watering hole to put it on tap).
Bud/Bud light? Bleh!
Years ago, the Anheuser-Busch reps annoyed the day manager of my local. She told 'em, "Okay. No more Anheuser-Busch products".

They said "You can't do that!"

Pub still doesn't carry anything by Anheuser.

Hehehe.

your logic is non-existent...

you worship a proven false god.

you use anecdotal evidence to attempt to back up your claims.

you attempt to use non-evidence as proof of non-existence and then in another post say non-evidence isn't proof of non-existence.

pretty much just idiotic posts all around, attempting to back up what has already been proven false.

cult mentality at its finest...

Technically, yes, they're crustaceans. Never ate them, though.
They are considered a delicacy in some parts.

the same god's prophet mohammed says the devil walked out of the garden of eden, leaving a trail of garlic and onions where his left and right foot touched the ground, respectively...

why would the same god have different stories about the same incident? oh yeah, it is a proven myth!

Drat, I missed that question.

For birds, Limpkins eat snail, and Snail Kites make a specialty of them. Note the extreme hook on the bill - that's to make it easier to twist Apple Snails out of their shells.

What logic was it to kill the first born of Egypt rather than simply shoving a lightning bolt up Pharaoh's ass?

<quoted text>I meant do they taste like snails...
i'll eat just about anything but junk food, and i was not too enamored with escargot...
Well that would be drowned snails in a butter and garlic mainly mix.
But the huge african slugs that almost look like sea-snails/slugs.
(I'll google later...gastropods resolves that one fine)and can be found on banana-plantations are just like eating nice meat.
Just throw it in a stew and you are bound to pick it out first.

But an honest answer to your question would have me involved in a double blind test tasting slugs and snails, both gastropods of the garden-variety.

Some quiet contemplation...

I'm almost ready to make the appeal: "but what about the kittens?"
For kittens reads slugs and snails.

HEY Macazumah.
Yep love periwinkles too.

Ooh dear...gosh...yellow of all things!

You sound so surprised...i'm l.o.l.
It's like you expected them to at least turn blue or something exotic like that.
In my minds eye your lemontree Always had yellow lemons and it was a huge solid thing.

I recall asking you how you got that to fit in your frontroom.

Any plant or landscaping question Woodtick is your man!

But don't ask about pot-plants.
Well that's academical...those get eaten by gastropods.

Do you suppose that DNA didn't exist before man knew how to test for it?
You are still a moron. Did I say you needed scientific tests for the evidence of God?

If liars for Jesus or other such idiots claim that their invisible friend did something there would be physical evidence of that event.

If there was a global flood there would be evidence for it. There is none. All geology says that for well over a billion years, and perhaps never, has the entire Earth been covered with water.

Biology says that their was no worldwide reduction of all species to almost extinction level.

Those debunk that Genesis myths right there.

Habitat loss.

how do toads and frogs deal with the snail-house?
