Ms Rivers has a deep and self-effacing sense of humor-- you are likely correct.

<quoted text>It's funny that you use the word hypocrite. So do I. I think the worse thing I can be judged for is being a hypocrite. Just because I claim to be a Christian doesn't give me the right to claim I'm better than anyone else, doing so would make me a hypocrite, because no Christian is without sin or contempt. Wouldn't you agree?
Well... that would depend on what you mean by "sin".

As I have come to realize, that "sin" is **strictly** in the eyes of the beholder-- not everyone agrees what it is.

Since there is no universal definition? Then I cannot agree that everyone is subject to it.

However, if you are trying to say that nobody is perfect?

I wholeheartedly agree-- nobody is perfect.

That's the point of learning something new, as often as you are able.

But to condemn a person, because they are not perfect, is to condemn yourself as well.

And even worse? That means you **must** also condemn newborns!

That is a horrible world-view: if everyone is to be condemned? Then everyone is the same as worthless.

Not a good outlook.

When you proclaim your a Christian that is what you are really admitting to, not that your better than others. I've always had issues with people that do. I consider them hypocrites.
Well... there are, at the last count, more than 40,000 **different** groups who call themselves "christian".

Which one is correct? They cannot **all** be correct! The various branches have beliefs that directly contradict the others'.

That is no way to run a reality! Reality cannot bend to fit each of the 40,000 **different** versions.

That fact alone, convinces me that there is no **divine** behind any of them--

-- because a christian group who did have divinity behind it?

Would soon overtake all the others-- within a few generations, it would **dominate** all the rest.(statistical distribution will prove this statement)

What mere human agency could compete with a divine one?

they have been found? Wow you need to hold a press conference with this ground breaking information. Really, there should be millions yet there have been none ever found. Sure, there are a few artistic renditions of these fossils and a few highly questionable "examples" but thats about it. Hard to believe you atheists can't see the problem with this. Guess that just shows how strong the cult of atheism is
All fossils are transitional.

All of them-- and yes, there **were** press conferences aplenty.

You simply were not invited-- you lack the education to understand.

What about that skull they found and it was reported it changes many of the scientific assumptions I mean theories concerning the development of man?

that skull they found? lol come on. There should be millions of these fossils and there aren't. It proves things don't evolve from one species into another.

No you misunderstand it was the variation of the skulls found where there is as many variations as with modern man. They didn't expect that.

It **should** have been at least mentioned.

But-- it's not.

Because the bible-writers were ignorant goat-f**kers.

What about it? It does not disprove evolution, it, in fact, is well within the theory's projections.

It's only a detail of refinement.

That is how science works: the theories keep getting refined better and better as more and more evidence proves them true.

Why?

Do you have a CLUE how a fossil is even formed?

Seriously?

You seriously need to get an actual education.

Yep--it's just a refinement of the details.

It does not in any way disprove the basic theory of evolution.

gillette your copy and paste skills are amazing. Again, there are no trans fossils. Its an irritating fact evolutionists must deal with even if they don't like it.

One more time, since you are so dimwitted:

**ALL** fossils are transitional.

All of them.
