We have to design the buildings for them because we don't want blood on our hands, but I certainly agree with your sentiment.

Its almost criminal neglect of society.

as understood by scientists? This statement alone tells me that its not a fact. Scientists have made numerous mistakes over the years because they simply don't have all the facts. 100 yrs from now they could completely change their minds. The only fact here is that scientists don't really know. By the way, there are scientists that are Christians.

The fact is that, yes they do know, and so do you, you just don't want to agree with it because you want your god to be real. There's nothing wrong with that, obviously science there are scientists that are christians then you should have no problem with the Big Bang ;-)

I said America was founded on Christian principles. Christianity is also the largest religion in this country by far.
As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli, which was ratified unanimously by the United States Senate and signed by President John Adams in 1797. John Adams, and many members of that early Senate, were among the drafters of the Constitution, participants in the Revolution, and certainly qualify as "founding fathers".

If the founding fathers themselves disclaim the intention of founding the nation as a 'christian nation', do you have any evidence that those honorable men would all lie to themselves, to each other to the nation and to the world about it?

lol I clicked on the first link angel and it was an animation lol Do you not realize there has to be billions of these fossils and all we have is a few artistic renderings? Its a major problem for evolutionists that they still can't explain. Know why? Cause there are none of these fossils that show man changing from an ape like thing to a human.

prove it? Ha....YOU prove it. You are the one claiming it. Things evolve within a species........not from one species to another.

The link is to the University of California at Berkley Science Department. Thats a pretty reputable source. There are also no animations. Are you sure you arent watching Cartoon Network and getting the two confused?

from what I can tell the intermediate drawing is simply that.........a drawing. Also note the wording of "it would appear" meaning it is not definate. Again, there would be millions of trans forms and there aren't any. Do you still not see a problem with this?

remember, things evolve within a species.........not from one species to another. Apes didn't turn into man and a cat never was a dog. Isn't this common sense? Guess not

I personally never said that evidence could not possibly be found by science at some point. Your the one that's saying that there is proof for god, and there is not. I'm saying that there is no evidence, but that doesn't mean there may never be. I personally don't think there will be, but my personal thoughts are not fact. The fact is that there is no definitive proof at this time and that is one of the reasons that I do not believe.
