I suspect he does not. In fact, I doubt he even comprehends the functional differences between plants, animals, bacteria, fungi, etc.

It's pretty sad to watch.

Haven't you atheists looked at your evidence and realize it's just a theory

I believe you are so full of hate, that you would cheerfully watch an atheist die in a preventable housefire.

In fact?

I believe you would **set** the fire, if you thought you could get away with it.

So full of hate you are.

Why don't you see if you can fly-- based on your beloved faith?

Hmmm?

Too much for your do-nothing godling?

We thought as much: you have **no** real faith in your cult.

Fungi are neither plants nor animals. Bacteria are neither plants nor animals. Your simple-minded categories do not encompass all that reality actually allows. The list of scientific categories is required because there is much more to the world than your religion recognizes or can handle. Science deals with reality; religion with delusions.

A fungus (/ˈfʌŋɡəs/; plural: fungi[3] or funguses[4]) is a member of a large group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds (British English: moulds), as well as the more familiar mushrooms. These organisms are classified as a kingdom, Fungi, which is separate from plants, animals, and bacteria. One major difference is that fungal cells have cell walls that contain chitin, unlike the cell walls of plants, which contain cellulose. These and other differences show that the fungi form a single group of related organisms, named the Eumycota (true fungi or Eumycetes), that share a common ancestor (a monophyletic group). This fungal group is distinct from the structurally similar myxomycetes (slime molds) and oomycetes (water molds). The discipline of biology devoted to the study of fungi is known as mycology (from the Greek μύκης mukēs, meaning "fungus"). Mycology has often been regarded as a branch of botany, even though it is a separate kingdom in biological taxonomy. Genetic studies have shown that fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants.

Oh my!

Bla bla bla.

You also have over 130 species of monkeys not including you.

And we only have one kind called Monkeys. We don't confuse a kind with species like atheist do. Atheist love word games.

Amazing how anything you don't understand is 'blah blah blah'. And, again, you ignore the difference between apes and monkeys (humans are the former, not the latter).

Since there is a scientific definition of 'species', but no such for 'kind', you have no science to back you up. I'm sure even you realize the difference between a robin and a blue jay. Do you consider them to be of a 'bird kind'? Why do you consider all monkeys to be one 'kind'? Are tigers and housecats the same 'kind'? How about lions and tigers? What is the exact criterion for distinguishing different 'kinds'? Intuition on the part of Christians?

Whatever is convenient to help "explain" their silly and childish myths.

The word "kind" really is quite flexible in that regards.

So flexible is the meaning, that the word has become ... meaningless.

About as useful as an icebucket on a snowmobile....

NO
IT IS A HISTORICAL DOCUMENT BASED ENTIRELY ON A SPECIFIC RELIGIOUS BELIEF
"fairy tales" are similar in that they evoke superstition as does religion.
The definition as follows...
• A fanciful tale of legendary deeds and creatures, usually intended for children.
• A fictitious, highly fanciful story or explanation.
Did we not just say that... Talking creatures, and miracles (legendary deeds)...only children should even begin to imagine that this can actually happen.

I think it's obvious that the bible is a fictitious story and a very poor explanation of any question that you have to ask.

The bible has been written, and re-written, and re-written, and revised for so many different versions its insane. To believe in the bible is ridiculous.

No scientific proof for atheism.
Atheists are NOT trusted with political office in the US.
Non-believers not being in office is only one of the problems that we have in the US. Adults don't "believe" in Richard Dawkins...we "Agree" with Richard Dawkins. We may not agree on everything, but one thing is for certain. There are no talking animals in his books, and that's a winner in my book lol.
