fun bible game...

for every saying in the bible see if you can find one that says the exact opposite..

such as "an eye for an eye..." to "turn the other cheek..."

it appears to be the most contradictory piece of fiction ever written.

Really? Because that definition is crap.

However, at which point exactly did it say "inanimate"?

Remember, our position does not violate its own axioms. Yours does. When do you intend to address this major discrepancy?

“The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on nothing; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing and admits of no conclusion.”~ Thomas Paine,“The Age of Reason”

Paine is known for his writings:“Common Sense”,“American Crisis”,“The Rights of Man”,“Agrarian Justice”, and “Age of Reason”. He served in Washington’s Continental Army and was at Valley Forge where he wrote of the "sunshine patriot".

I am so impressed by your lame desert religion fantasies. You religious freakazoids are laughable zombies of superstition. You guys are the harbingers of pure nonsense. Please, if being dead is such a wonderful thing for you, hurry off to Jesus. The rest of us adults will continue to cure disease, develop better forms of food production, etc., and continue to collect and study datam in order to do so.

blowfart, I did not supply a site. And you know the rules for creatards, why didn't you properly quote and link to this supposed site?

Until you do that you have lied.

Besides, the one definition that you supposedly quoted is wrong. Do you know what was wrong with your definition?

Okay, for all of the idiots out there. All of the simple problems have long ago been solved in evolution. So scientist specialize today. They each cover a very small part of a bigger problem. That is why it takes many articles to explain the evolution of the rotator flagellum. When they are put together we can see the bigger picture. None of the biologists involved in all of those articles had any doubt that the flagellum was a product of evolution.
SBT, if you site articles you should try to site articles that actually support you.
Yes and Custer lost at the Washita and won at Little Big Horn. Meet MO-1, a 7 engine version of e.coli. It uses counter rotating props/dual props like the Russian and latest French 4 engine C-130 type transports. More efficient than a single flagella when you want extra thrust without the extra drag from extra engine nacelles. Oh, I forgot it has reduction gears..

"MO-1 - a bacterium that packs a gear-driven, seven-engine, magnetic-guided flagellar bundle that gets 0 to 300 micrometers in one second, ten times faster than E. coli".

"If you thought the standard bacterial flagellum made the case for intelligent design, wait till you hear the specs on MO-1, a marine bacterium described by Japanese researchers in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Edited by Howard Berg, Harvard's mastermind of flagellum reverse engineering, this paper describes the Ferrari of flagella".

Instead of being a simple helically wound propeller driven by a rotary motor, it is a complex organelle consisting of 7 flagella and 24 fibrils that form a tight bundle enveloped by a glycoprotein sheath.... the flagella of MO-1 must rotate individually, and yet the entire bundle functions as a unit to comprise a motility organelle.

http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2012/11/21/...

Course you already "believe" it evolved, so if we have a single motor unit and then wow, on the evolution show floor this MO-1 Ferarri shows up, where is your common decent intermediate models? You should have one with a gear box, then a dual model with a pair of counter props, then, then, then presto! The 2012 7 engine model! Course your factory has no planning, design group, engineers etc., just mindless nothingness did it all, but shuuush, don't tell that to the unsuspecting buyer, may effect sales...

Just skip over the arguments I make from an electrical,design, PLC logic and electronics standpoint and the evolutionary fairytale continues...

Yes, it is amazing that naturalists insist there must be other alien life forms somewhere and have no trouble accepting multiple dimensions. However, when theists present support for a non corporeal alien life form that lives in an ethereal realm, atheists call theists the silly ones.

You have not made one valid argument yet.

All you have posted are arguments from ignorance.

Once again that article does not support your claims in any way at all. Why don't you see if there is an article that actually helps you instead of ones that help us?

I must have missed that one.

If you are referring to his link to the Cassiopeia Project there was nothing about Uranus there.

SBT, a sure sign that someone is losing a debate is when he starts to use strawman arguments. Your last post was mostly a pure strawman argument, thank you for admitting defeat.

The first article mentions the flagellum and evolution twice. The second article mentions neither. I am still trying to figure out how Custer supports your position. Maybe it is just because evolution is not mentioned.

That's right, Boca Vista, senior dinners at 4:00 PM in restaurants before the younger people come out. It was a great series and then they killed it at the end with a terrible finally that all but guaranteed there would be no requests for a reunion special. I think they did it on purpose.

I don't think they are called 'Naturalists' anymore, they seem to like the 'Scientists' appellation nowadays.

It just seems to make sense that out of trillions of stars in the known universe there is a least ONE more planet with life.

You say:
"...non corporeal alien life form that lives in an ethereal realm, atheists call theists the silly ones."

Must be magic.:-)

yeah, me neither...

i thought it was a well established thing that many older people eat supper early. many of the older people i know do. they also get up at 4:00am and go to bed at 8:00pm, so supper at 4 in the afternoon isn't that odd...

True. I suppose it was the mention of beach bunnies that threw me off.
