you have a lot of catching up to do on your Bible studies.
What an embarrassment you are to yourself.
As an ex-C I know the bible well, too well. Without Jesus glasses, the OT is a cataloge of horrors, and mythology. The NT starts out well. But strip away the myths, and you a less palatable story.

A brief synopsis. A man rises from the dead and ascends into heaven on a cloud (acts 1). You are saved by eating his flesh and drinking his blood (John 6). That my friend is insane.

Is Richard Dawkins honest?
No – he is a narrow minded atheist fundamentalist who accuses “religion” of tyranny while he ignores atheistic, communisitic regimes who killed millions.
Not true. I was reading from the God Delusion yesterday, and he was making a very balanced case. He states that there are doubts that Hitler was an atheist, and that Stalin certainly was one. He presents and very considered view, explaining both sides of an argument. Nothing like a fundamentalist imo.

The fact is there is no proof for evolution
"Evolutionary belief is a remarkable and largely unexplained phenomenon. It is a belief held by most intellectuals all over the world, despite the fact that there is no real scientific evidence for it at all. Evolutionists allege that evolution is a proved scientific fact, based on a multitude of scientific proofs, but they are unable to document even one of these supposed proofs! "

Oh no what have i done I quoted a Christian web site.
I don't really care, it's the view point I have and billions of others also have.
There is nothing wrong in using a Christian website. You're a Christian. Atheists don't dictate resources to us, lol. What good are atheist websites? They are good for spreading hate, lies, and supporting fraudulent science – that's about it!

derek4 " accuses “religion” of tyranny".

You only have to switch on the news to see the continual tyranny around the world caused by religion. The reason islamists commit acts of terror is not cause they are mad or evil. They are very religious. They take their holy book the quran literally and act accordingly. Surely you can see the madness in that religion. Yet Christians are no longer fighting crusades, but still believe in crazy things despite all the vast amounts of evidence to the contrary.

Gee how intellectual is that? Stupid much?
You got one thing right – you're stupid, lol.

If you're going to support evolution, you need to familiarize yourself on what evolution teaches.

The Catholic church gave us the scientific method, they figured out a perfect method for exposing fraudulent miracles and eventually how to apply it in many areas, resulting in the coined term "scientific method."

Unlike you, we give credit where due, they gave everyone a great tool, they get credit for that. They also accept that it's a very accurate tool, which you provided a lot of evidence to help demonstrate how well the method works, thanks for showing that it works well. It's not surprising that they accept what the method produces. So your dishonest attempt at painting with a broad brush fails, as usual.

Christian website spread hate, lies and fraudulent science. Fundies hate others not belonging to their sect, including other christians who hold only minor differences in theology. They spread lies and half truths about other faiths, and belief systems. Sites like answers in genesis preach distorted and laughable fraudulent creation science. I go there for a laugh sometimes cause it is so absurd and ridiculous.

But as we know, you just descended from a common rodent. Read about those too. And learn more about fraudulent evolution. Your support of the ignorance of your cohorts exhibits your own ignorance more than you have already done for us. Take a break because I think you're tired.

Although your statements are false, it's still interesting that you're another supporter of the Catholic church.

Here's a less sensationalized version of the story that actually uses scientific language and those pesky facts:
http://www.nature.com/news/2009/091021/full/4...
You are the ones using that "missing link" nonsense, that's not even a scientific term. You should also stop posting things that destroy your entire position, just a bit of advice. But thank you for showing me that the scientific community is better at catching frauds than I had originally thought.
It requires a very strong faith to believe in fraudulent science. I commend you for having that kind of unfaltering faith.

You're an unusual Catholic.

Are you a member of a peer-review group?

No, you have made *CLAIMS* that they are fraudulent and wrong, but you have NOT shown these claims to be true. In fact, the evidence shows *your* claims are wrong. Since you didn't actually claim to do any research (or any thinking), what you posted isn't fraudulent, only wrong. But any *scientist* that made truth claims (as opposed to simple speculation) like yours with so little actual evidence would be laughed out of the profession.
The government doesn't waste time laughing at fraudulent scientists......they send them to prison.

If Charles Darwin found it so hard to convince his counterparts of his fraudulent theory in his own day and time, why are so many saps living today convinced that his theory is “gospel”?

And why did Darwin leave out part of his findings? To make the part he left in more believable?

Darwin thought life kept evolving. When are humans going to evolve into something higher?

Or is it now time for humans to devolve?

Isaac Newton's theory proposed that what goes up must come down.

Hmmmm – inconsistency in science.

Perhaps the primitive brain of the atheist holds the gene that may have already started the devolving process.

When seen in that perspective, evolution is almost believable, lol.
