Yeah.
Belief in Evolution = Understanding Natural World
Understanding Natural World = Grasping Reality
Grasping Reality = Atheism
I can see that.
You really demonstrate the depth of human gullibility when you embrace the fruits of a scientific/technological civilization, handed to you on a silver platter by the scarred and calloused hand of Science and then reject and mock some of her most basic, well established tenets. It makes you appear as children, scampering and tittering through life, never really growing up. I mean, what's up with that? You've got to respect the Amish, who see the hypocrisy in modern religion and try to reject the "evils" of technology.
Let's see ... science has given you your home, your health, your clothes, your transportation, your comforts, your food, your security ... if science were a god, particularly one as petty as the one you worship, you'd be bob'n for turds in a cesspool in the deepest recesses of hell right now.
Lucky for all of us, Science is not a God that created us to be worshiped, but rather a tool we created to observe and understand the world we live in. It works really well.
Reminds me of a couple old sayings ...
"You can lead a Godbot to Reason, but you can't make them drink!"
or
"If you took a stroll through the Waters of Knowledge in most Godbots minds, you'd scarcely get your feet wet".
You wrote a lot to say so little.

Science gave me my home, lol? No, I bought my home.

There were many fields of labor and talent other than science that went into the making of my home, as well as most of the rest you mentioned.

And I thank God for making it all possible.

Also, my health is fine – with zero credit due science. I take no medications from science. When and if I ever do, I hope they won't be produced by FRAUDULENT scientists. Sadly, there are many cases in litigation due to bad medications.

God provides the very air you breathe. Try going without it for 5 minutes and see how well you do, lol.

Dang. First mistake of the New Year.
You will make many mistakes in the new year, just as you did in the old year. How you phrase your sentences is the least of them. You have serious issues, but you won't learn.

We do it everyday!! Every moment of our lives is spent "tolerating" you weirdos. Atheist policemen, firemen, soldiers and sailors all dedicate themselves to defending your rights to be ignorant.
You drag a Godbot out into the cleansing light of Reason and they go up in a foul puff of smoke, like a vampire caught in the sun. It's sad really.
LET US HELP YOU!!!
I'm afraid you have it backwards. There are far more Christian policemen, firemen, soldiers and sailors defending your right to be godless than the pitiful sum of atheist policemen, firemen, soldiers and sailors (if there are ANY in my community) defending my right to anything. You obviously failed to put any thought into your meaningless point, as usual.

You're just another hapless creationist spammer with no proof of god, trying and failing to attack atheists and scientists.
The same scientists that let you type on the internet and spread your ridiculous creationist propoganda.
You're just another failed atheist, like the rest. Nothing special about you.

When will you prove evolution?

You have failed to do so, just as science has failed to do so.

I don't attack atheists and scientists. I tell the truth about them. And it shows because it makes you mad, lol.

Per the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, religious discrimination has doubled in the American workplace in only 13 years.

Isn't religious freedom protected by the Constitution?

It's SUPPOSED to be, but apparently not lately ...

Maybe atheists who dictate their own beliefs have something to do with that.

So why are atheists accusing Christians of dictating beliefs?

Vincent Dammai, assistant professor at the Medical University of South Carolina was charged with unauthorized distribution of stem cells for unapproved treatments. Three other people were also arrested in the case.

Science offers many opportunities to break the law – all in the name of “research”, lol.

Those who object to God caused the removal of ceramic tiles at Columbine school. The objection was to painted messages on the tiles which said “God is love”. The school removed the tiles because they were found objectionable, and freedom of speech was therefore infringed upon by those who would dictate their beliefs against God.

Judy Mikovits was locked up and refused bail. She's allegedly responsible for falsely trying to show that a virus could be the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. Judy was running from the law because she removed data from the files of her former employer, Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Diseases in Reno, Nevada.

Judy isn't considered very “reputable”, lol.......to say the least.

But then, she may be a typical scientist, who knows?

You only care about that law because it opposes scientific research. If it was say, a person who bombed an abortion clinic in the name of your religion, you wouldn't care, would you?
Well look at that:

So trying to help scientific advancement is bad for you, even when no one is harmed in the process, but bombing, and killing, for your religion is meh. Nice double standards there ... or is it a complete lack of standards?

They can't get that it's bad science that we would like to stop. As far as good science no problem. Just stop selling out the truth to keep your dreams alive.
Evolution has billions stuck into it trying to keep it a float. That ship is sinking and the sooner science jumps ship and abandons evolution the better off we all would be.

Perhaps they realised that "love" is not consigning billions of people to everlasting.

Or perhaps it was because they decided that "love" is not manipulating to arrange for the death of your son.

We all know what Dim's religion thinks about scientific research.

Just look at the way Christians dealt with Galileo and his findings.

They're trying (and failing) to do it again with Darwin, but here we are over 160 years on and Darwin's great theory goes from strength-to-strength.
