Sorry, who the f*ck are you? oh yeah that immature lying creationist that sits in the corner losing every argument she enters into. Defended by Lil Ticked, your tag team partner in your little game of creationist charades.
What I find funny about you creationists is that you continue your bullsh*t even after you are exposed. Maybe you clowns are paid to post on these forums and you need the money and haven't reported back the logical slaughter you're recieving day in and day out on these forums.
You expect people to engage you in conversation and sit back and accept your bullsh*t at face value. That time is over you morons.
I don't argue.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

...cough...

Show me where I failed in what you call an argument.

I understand and fully expect Christians to spam every thread in the Atheism Forum, that's what trolls do.

But I do wish non-theists wouldn't support such behavior by replying to their posts.

It's what desperate fools who have learned that people are leaving in droves do. Otherwise how will the religeofraud continue to fund itself?

"Darwinism involves a way of thought in biology, and were it to go, it would take a great many assumptions along with it. Just think of vitalism, for example. To say a word in its favor is at once to be accused of the cheapest kind of intellectual sentimentality. We know better and if we do not know better, they do. But hold on, please do. If by vitalism one means something like the 19th century idea of a vital fluid that informs living systems, then I am with them. That is so much sentimentality. But if by vitalism one means the thesis that living systems cannot be completely explained in terms of their physics or their chemistry -- what then? Something must explain the difference, no? And if it is not a fluid, as naive 19th-century biologists sometimes thought, it does not follow that it is nothing."

The bible says all atheists are fools. And you, I'll ticked, defend that statement. You're not fooling anyone.

Your not agnostic or atheist, you're Christian and you disrupt every conversation that is critical of Christianity / creationism. fact.

Another attempt by lil ticked's partner nanoanomaly to disrupt the criticism of lil ticked's dishonest approach.

You both claim you're exposing hypocrites, but all I see are pot shots at the atheists that continue to highlight your religious bias and moronic arguments.

Christopher Hitchens, who died one year ago today, said, "Our principles are not a faith. We do not rely solely upon science and reason, because these are necessary rather than sufficient factors, but we distrust anything that contradicts science or outrages reason. We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake."

Your comment only proves you have no idea what that quote means or how to compare it to freethinking.

He was as bad as any other cultist in encouraging his acolytes to ridicule others for how they thought. He preached hate and intolerance.
