One of the biggest mistakes that atheists make is to presume to know how a God should act, if He does exist. It is a manifestation of consummate arrogance coupled with profound ignorance. Unfortunately, evolutionists have been falling prey to this fallacy since the time of Charles Darwin. You presume that your childish logic can explain all of the mysteries of the universe, because you assume that no intelligence exists greater than your own.
How very strange is it that your god acted exactly how a primitive man thought and acted.
But to make it even more contrived the concept of god evolved exactly as mans ideals evolved.
Changing exactly how mans ideals changed and mirrored him throughout history.
You see you are arguing about the man in the mirror, god created man in his own image.
You see the man in the mirror? He created god. And the man in the mirror created you.

Well at least you admit its an educated guess.
By educated, I suppose you mean,informed, and by "very little" you must be referring to the consistent set of discoveries in the fossil record and the genome, along with independently corroborating evidence from lab experiments, embryology, genetic algorithms, atavisms, and so on.
You know, all that evidence that creationism did not even suspect existed and cannot explain away today, but evolution explains and in many cases predicted.
An educated guess trumps ignorance based on wishful thinking any day.
An educated guess is far removed from fact.

I never said evolution was not interesting, the origin of life is an age old question.

But to blindly follow evolution is very cult-like

Reminds me of the big bangists, scientologists and unitarians

Why do you people continually get confused between proven science and hypothesis? Evolution is a fact, it is also an observation.
'the origin of life is STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION.
There is only hypothesis and nothing concrete in this study, but educated guesses is all we have before the discovery and the theory that explains it all completely.
Which btw evolution has done quite well in doing so.
But origin, now that is a door that leads to many doors and no one is sure which set of doors is the right set of doors towards explaining it.

The theory of evolution is science and science is not blindly followed, no matter how often you claim it is.

There is a complete lack of fossil record

Some excavator finds a "Lucy" and starts to tell people that is a subhuman form of modern man and people fall for that crap.

No that is about as credible as the coming Ice Age or Global Warming.

A few centuries from now people will laugh at the idiocy of the common evolution belief system. It will be like the flat earth theory and the sun revolving around the sun theory.

How cute.

You think that "Lucy" is the only Australopithecus afarensis fossil found, eh?

That's adorable!

Of course she was not the first, nor by any means the last. It is amazing how many creationists think that there was only one "Lucy" found or one Homo erectus. Or even just one "Peking Man". Of course there is the first famous one found for any fossil species, that of course does not mean that many more cannot be found later.

We know this since you said we couldn't demonstrate evolution and we did and now we're still waiting for you to come up with a coherent rebuttal.
Take your time teebag.
POP!!!!!!!!!!

You have more Ideas? Can we please hear them?

That Post just pops out and it really does so branches of Scientifics are being discussed hab=ve they been for eons too By Philosophy and their Creators of thought to what it must have been like to ponder on something hu, like a stumble for knowledge is that leap in gain ? A jump to pump up something a flow of generative means rather than to measure wouldn't you agree in that?

And to be honest I honestly do not recall right now if we have been already speaking to one and another or not..

Austria didn't know it was referred to as Austro?

Religion

Lutheranism (by christening)
Humanitarianism

and Agnosticism (as an adult)

That's some facts on that Professor...And I have no clue for what the initials are for in his description...

Another specie of a branch in Science?

What makes you think of Active people?
Somewhere they must be still gatherings and shouts and roars to publicly be voicing things?

Oh wait that is happening right inhere...forgot...

Oh good then really what interrupts at times in life's meaning what becomes un-necessary hmmmmm

A scientist surely would have some Idea at least I mean and to consider what a Professor can do is to ask Qoestions of a class to further instill and to find someone that had some background of self observations into all and what can be seen...

Karl Raimund Popper CH FBA FRS (28 July 1902 17 September 1994) was an Austrian-British philosopher and professor at the London School of Economics. He is generally regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of science of the 20th century. Popper is known for his rejection of the classical inductivist views on the scientific method, in favour of empirical falsification: A theory in the empirical sciences can never be proven, but it can be falsified, meaning that it can and should be scrutinized by decisive experiments. If the outcome of an experiment contradicts the theory, one should refrain from ad hoc manoeuvres that evade the contradiction merely by making it less falsifiable. Popper is also known for his opposition to the classical justificationist account of knowledge which he replaced with critical rationalism, "the first non justificational philosophy of criticism in the history of philosophy".In political discourse, he is known for his vigorous defence of liberal democracy and the principles of social criticism that he came to believe

Has anyone here studied under that man?
