Apparently you never stepped foot on a University as a student because you clearly have no idea how Universities operate
It is clear you never went to a university. OBI doesn't count as an education and it is just a pseudo-high school.

Ok i think evolution is a cool idea but even if i wasn't brought up in a religious home id never believe it we lack to much evidence to even consider that theory. at this point there i no observable evidence, and although some may say natural selection is proof of evolution its not, actually most christians and other various religions believe in and agree with natural selection. So as far as im aware science has given no observable proof that is 100% backed up by fact to prove evolution.

Here lies the problem.... As far as you know.
That isn't very far , because evolution IS an observation.

Then there is so much that you are not aware of.

Evolution is supported by observable evidence and the occurrence has long since been accepted in science.

It would be observable evidence and fossils are a good start.

It isn't a matter of "how universities operate." Are you claiming that Cornell University's liberal arts program is a seminary and/or divinity school?
I think this moke has confused Cornell University with a little divinity school in Iowa called Cornell College.

So What? Cornell probably has a partnership with a Divinity School in the market area. Most likely Divinity Students spend their undergrad and masters at Cornell then are accepted into a Divinity School in a partnership program with Cornell. The divinity program may be on the same campus with Cornell. That is the setup at many major universities.
My original post was many prestigious universities Harvard, Princeton, Yale were established as Divinity Schools for the expressed purpose of training Ministers.
You Evolution idiots are pathetic
Actually the most famous naturalist did this exact thing.

You realize the Constitution doesn't allow state funds to be used to support divinity schools.

I have attended two major universities and nothing like you suggest existed at either. I have been to a number of others and again nothing you describe exists there. I work with people at Cornell and have coworkers educated at Cornell. There is no such situation.

Your original post included state run universities and the private universities you indicate. You were and continue to be wrong. The evidence of who is pathetic fully supports your position in that category. To top it off moron. I am not an atheist. I laugh every time one of you morons calls me that.

By the way, I work with molecular biologists, biochemists and ecologists that accept evolution and were trained at Harvard, Yale and Princeton.

Thanks for playing. Sorry you are such a piss poor player.

Incidentally, you don't need that much education to get into a divinity school. I believe the less you have the better for the fundamentalists schools.

If it is mere to observe it you should talk some more to understand someone I hear always a watchin'...

If it is though into Science and scientific data would you think after a while that who is the Observant is seems to be a servent VENT????

You agree to your own imagining and you suppose things based purely on ignorance. You lie as well since your responses to me included the reference to atheism. You may have left yourself some wiggle room to mean you weren't referring directly to me, but that is just your cowardice.

Evolution is not equated with any religious belief or lack of religious belief. It is science. Sorry it makes your head hurt to try and understand that.

I never made a statement about evolution being a game. Are you so stupid that you don't even know who you are responding to and about what?

But how is that 100% backed up fossilization doesn't have to take millions of years it just needs the right conditions we have fossilized teddy bears for example that were fossilized less than 10 years ago and if the fossils "prove" evolution then why is there so many missing links and remember its called the "theory" of evolution for a reason

Sorry, Nick, you've been misinformed.

It takes a minimum (and still too short, IMO) 10,000 years to form a fossil.

Who told you of this fossilized teddy bear?

No thay was natural selection and like i said a few comments back us christians believe in that to natural selection is real but one animal doesnt not simply turn into another when you have a cow you get a cow not a chicken or a horse :-P

No one said any animal "simply" turns into another species. But speciation occurs over time.
If you look at this over deep time, after speciation has occurred many times, you will have and animal that does not resemble it's ancestors. We see it has happened to many species through the fossil record. It happened with horses, whales and humans, burying your head in the sand to this fact will get you no where. Evolution is a fact and an observation, It also has theory to it's methodology and if you admit natural selection occurs. Then you fail in logic if you cannot see that over deep time , natural selection is one Modus operandi in the evolution of species.
