LUKE 24:41&42 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them. Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

LUKE 9:12&13&14&15& 16&17 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. And they did so, and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they did eat, and were all filled:and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

The Bible has been changed through translations: http://world.time.com/2014/02/11/the-mystery -... How can we know is what's written in it is even what was written in the original Bible?
What is the "The all mighty one," a organism? I honestly don't know. According to Christians he is a high and mighty figure but...doesn't that make him non-living? He isn't an organism...if he isn't an organism, that means he has no cells, then is he a ghost? What makes him living if he isn't an organism? If he isn't living then he must be "The mighty spirit " who is the creator of everything. This link helps clear things up a bit: http://www.thechristmind.org/god-is.htm
The "High and mighty ghosty one" made over 8.7 million species ( http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/ ...) in six days?
The oldest living tree is thought to be 12000 years old. Can a tree live forever given the right conditions?

Haha, yeah I'm pretty sure he/it/she is not on the keyword, maybe try searching organism in the keyword, or God organism.

Oh, sorry I was thinking of the wrong link, search "How many species on Earth? About 8.7 million, new estimate says" in the keyword or just on Google. On Google it's the first link to come up, try it on Google.

The results of that could, and probably will be, catastrophic. We'll have to hope for our future relatives that humans are not dumb enough to engineer a way to allow humans to live forever. Or, if they do, they don't use it in a bad way.

Now that there's a fascinatin' question.

Given that the self-cloning Pando colony of Quaking Aspen (Populus tremoloides) in Utah is 80,000 years old, I cannot imagine anything short of catastrophic climate change killing it off...

Fire certainly won't do it - they depend on fire.

Well by living here, we are talking about continuing on in the same process forever.
In that respect the sun is alive with the reactions that drive it's existence, consequently it being a major requirement for a tree to live, so you see if the life of a star is not eternal.
Then the tree's life which is forever dependent on the sun , can't possibly live forever.
But more importantly in cosmology we do see stars as either alive, or dead in their processes.

Very smart of you. So given the right conditions, trees have something in their makeup that would let them live for ever if the right conditions were set.

Next I am moving nothing, you are lying and this very thread proves it, do you really think that everyone is a stupid as you?
I agree with you 100% with your “new” claim that England is part of Great Britain and that very fact means that people born in England are British. In exactly the same way that people born in Wales are British. Just ask any “English” or “Welsh” person to read their nationality from their passport or ask where their driving licence was issued.
Here are a couple of hints
Passport, Nationality : British Citizen
United Kingdom Driving Licence, issued “United Kingdom of Great Britain”
You are clueless, you make up rules up to suit you own prejudices and then argue black is white when the real rules do not actually match your guesses. When the facts are proven even beyond the ability of you stupidity to ignore then you move the goalpost to suit a new rule you have made up.
It’s really quite pathetic and a total waste of time. Your deliberate ignorance explains why you choose to troll rather than to admit defeat in the evolution vs creation argument.
Until you understand that England is the only true English nation in Britain and the UK, i will not relent. Go on with your trash.

And again, no arguments about England as a unit under Britain, but its inhabitants are also known as the English. This is used to differentiate other British nationals that are not English or from England.

That is your opinion. Jesus Christ existed as a man, and he is still very much in existence. To date.

Hmm.

The Amish and Mennonites here in the US refer to anyone who doesn't speak Pennsylvania Dutch as "The English". Even me.

Which kinda scuppers your notion that the English are "solely English".

One realizes that English is your second language, Chuck, but that's no excuse. It's my second, too.

Shurrup.
