Actually, it looks like this thread is cross-posted with the "Religion", "Cleveland", and "Christian Music" forums in addition to being in the "Atheism" forum.

Did you fall off the turnip wagon and hit your head hard! LOL
Show me one instance in the last 500 years where an ape or bird or fish had another kind of species other than its own kind.

look who is following in satan's footsteps, you did exactly what the devil did when he repeated what GOD had said to Adam and Eve about not eating of the tree they were commanded not to eat from.
The devil left out things GOD had said, and you left things out that I said, is that ironic?
You give the people a false story when you do that,it's like you're saying, this is what the person said and that's it! THAT IS A LIE!
Lying is of the devil, he is the father of every lie.

I'm a TRUE Christian and I admit that Jesus told more LIES than the Devil. For one, Jesus' older brother, the Devil, never wrote a book talking smack about God which makes Satan the bigger man. Indeed, Jesus was a crazy blabbermouth. Bein' Christian means that I am HONEST about the Bearded Guy, His Kid and the Pigeon. I don't coddle YahwehJesusPigeon and unlike FAKE Christians like you, I don't do sicky-poo baby talk with Jesus. I tell the TRUTH about the murderous FatherSonPigeon team. You are probably a FAKE-ASS Christoholic tryin' to hoard atheists and feral cats into your HELLISH cult.

Jesus Lies:

In Matthew 7:7 Jesus says:

Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

In Matthew 17:20 Jesus reiterates that same message:

For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Since a mustard seed is a tiny inanimate object about the size of a grain of salt, it is easy to imagine that the faith of a mustard seed is fairly small. So, paraphrasing, what Jesus is saying is that if you have the tiniest bit of faith, you can move mountains.

Jesus says something similar in Matthew 21:21:

I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain,'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

The message is reiterated Mark 11:24:

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

In John chapter 14, verses 12 through 14, Jesus tells all of us just how easy prayer can be:

"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.

In Matthew 18:19 Jesus says it again:

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

However, when we prayed in my SPIRIT-led church for a double amputee to grow his limbs back, NONE of the limbs grew back! We checked every day for an entire month and no new limbs. We stripped the double cripple naked and checked the hole where his armpits should be…NOTHIN’. The double amputee is a TRUE Christian who slaughtered five-year-olds in the Iraq War so you’d think YahwehJesusPigeon would give him back his arms.

Jesus lies.

First by all means, you must be truthful and not shout out lie after lie for attention. lol
If you know it's a lie it is not true.
Just because a finite mind cannot undertand what is written in the Bible does not constitute Jesus as untrue in words. The Bible has been around a lot longer than any commenting on the forum and will survive after we are gone from this life.
The Bible will NEVER be stamped out as hard as mere mortal men try.

you are just as plain as what name you go by on this forum LOL
be careful you may be the liar!
I didn't say in anyway that GOD does not exist and you cannot prove He doesn't exist!
I have more proof that He is, I am here, you are here, explain your existence that makes sense other
than the Creator, GOD!
Maybe you should go to a forum you can understand and have some knowledge about. food for thought
You are not asking "right" questions, do you not understand what that means? LOL

When you're learned how to stop lying and choose to respect the rules of evidence and logic, you're welcome back.

Skeptic needs to heed his own advice
he don't understand respect at all
that is clearly understood by his remarks
He should find a forum that he can understand
one with more simplicity to his child like persona that he shows.
I'm not here to argue with someone because they don't have the capabilities to understand what the adults know LOL
Don't be so narrow minded, you got eyes OPEN them up take a good look around and ponder as socretes did LOL
Ask a "right" question of believers just as Andre
who shows he understands the topic of discussion.

There is much more evidence that a Creator is responsible for all life, and the heavens with its billions of galaxies, the oceans with all it's life and the vast insect world. Everything living in harmony and by procreation.

Everything being mathematically proven by Science, and most Scientists finally admitting there is a God, a designer and Creator, because of this evidence.

That doesn't make anyone godly, that just shows a persons intelligence, the Atheist is just a fool.
