<quoted text>I am really not sure what you position is. Your posts have left me with more confusion than clarity. Do you think you are safer with a gun or without a gun?
I don't carry a gun, I don't feel I need to. But I do not go places where I might or carry lots of cash or valuables with me either. But there could be instances where carrying a gun would be wise, Other people may have these threats or vulnerabilities when they move through errands
and think it less than wise if they are vulnerable. To answer that question I would have to say it's conditional and don't think everyone should be carrying guns around with them all the time.
But there are reasons people should, so the answer is normally no and conditionally yes.

IOW, You still got nuthin'.
It is not speculation that Genesis says Adam was created in the gods' image. It is not speculation that the biblical YHWH frequently acted and reacted >exactly< as "imperfectly" as the average human would. The biblical god is not portrayed as some new age ethereal cotton candy cloud of perfect love energy. It is a human construct and thus inevitably and intrinsically human-like.
Does that explains how the universe came? NO!

You say that telling you about this God is unwanted and unnecessary, but you apparently want me to praise and ignorantly regurgitate some biblical myth about this God and Creation. Yeah, that's reasonable and logical. 0.o
So tell me, did the universe came by accident?

As for the rest I have provide links that you may use to educate yourself. Even multiple posts limited to 4000 characters a time on topix will never be enough to compress many years of scientific/cosmological understanding into a form that your thick and deliberately ignorant mind can absorb.
And you still have not defined any flaws as you claim.– I wonder why, could it be cause you are lying and have no way to dig yourself out?

Claim: there is a god.
Claim: he created the universe and life.

Question: do you have evidence (in the same fashion you asked Christine) for you god?
Question: do you have evidence of the creation process?
Question: do you have evidence for the mechanisms used by god to create?

Do NEVER ask evidence for your opponent's position when you yourself have no evidence for yours.

Like i said, i don't need any one to tell me about this God. The universe is my evidence and defence.

Lastly, the universe indeed, according to science, did not came by accident, at least as far as we know (until the Planck epoch).

Claim: the universe never came by accident.
Question: how do you know? Evidence?

"Again, without the man, the woman can not be pregnant".
Yes we all know of the birds and the bees.

The bible never denied that, the Israelite were not idol worshippers, but with time, they began to see the truth about God.
Even though many of them still idol worshipping as the order of the day.

BTW, we not die because we are limited, but because of:
1) natural disasters
2) starvation when there is not enough food around
3) eaten by predators
4) infections caused by microbes
5) genetically programmed cell death cumulating
6) traffic accidents
7) homicide
8) genetic diseases mostly due to genetic errors in the DNA
9) ageing by cumulating DNA errors due to radiation and the impact of mutagen chemicals.

Limited? Superfluous explanation only blurring things.

The head of all Native Indian tribes is actually the Chief's wife? She makes all the decisions (in private) and the Chief, who is basically the spokesperson, delivers this to the tribe.
Nice.
I know that the women do have the power, but despite that, without the strength of the men, the women are nothing.

Let me add to this;
Don't ever blame it on guns. I have never seen a spoon make anyone fat.
A spoon by itself or even having many spoons will actually make a person lose weight. It all changes when that "person" chooses poorly what to do with/how to use with that spoon.
A gun by itself or even having many guns will actually make a person safer. It all changes when that "person" chooses what to do with/how to use that gun.
Spoons were never designed and manufactured specifically to kill and injure people, which guns were.
And you have to admit that there are far more gun injuries than spoon injuries despite the fact that there are several times more spoons than guns.

Quite true, as long as it is private and not public. Lol
