How would ID based research into the origins of life differ from the natural processes based research?

<quoted text>Geesh, you're not very smart! Hoax...Really?
No one (with intelligence and knowledge of climate change) denies the Earth is getting warmer! The ONLY dispute is if it's caused by man...and it's natural. It's a FACT! The Earth...as a whole...including the ocean is warming at an astounding rate. That's why thousand year old permafrost is melting. YOU CAN'T DENY THAT...because it's proven fact...by scientists, and now even republicans agree. It doesn't mean it won't be colder in other spots...we are talking about earth temp as a whole. That's why we are having more severe weather, more often.
NO one denies the Earth is warming, except extremely misinformed uneducated people.
AGAIN, the only dispute is whether its man made or not.
The Earth is warming, the reason they changed the name is because they realized that WARMING was causing severe weather, and changing climates. How can you be alive on Earth and not see this with your own eyes, and your own research.
It's like you're wearing a tin foil hat. You're probably a conspiracy theorist, lol
The earth is not getting warmer. Even the global warming alarmists concede that.

Over the last 15 years, global temperatures have fallen.

Are you saying that to yourself...or me?

<quoted text>Hmmmmmm, I'd say most everyone reading this thread can judge that!
So, the design of a computer chip exceeds that of the human brain.

Missy, computer chip design is dwarfed in complexity by the design of one simple cell.

You need to avoid this subject.

Hey Red.

We have another Topix Atheist truism to add to the list.

A computer chip exceeds the human brain in design.

The hits just keep coming in!

Your precious England has a Christian heritage. A STRONG Christian heritage.

You're saying that England is still intolerant.

If it's disruptive in a public school classroom, they certainly do have a right to not have to hear it.
Shuffling cards in a public school classroom is disruptive, more disruptive than a prayer, there's no constitutional law against shuffling cards is there?

Violating school disruption policies is vastly different of violating US constitutional law.

<quoted text>So, more logical fallacies. Can you create a post without them? Show where I made any of the assertions you claim I made here. None of those things you assert are the opposite of trickle down which is demonstrably ineffective.
Getting money into the hands of the middle class stimulates the environment, but your "job creators" are ensuring that no longer happens by opposing every economic reform that made that possible.
You're living a lie, nitwit. Every assertion you make, on every topic on Topix, is without evidence.
WHOA!

Ms. Buck Crick provides comedy relief for topix.

I find her unintentionally funny at times, sometimes even makes me laugh!

One must remember those addicted to superstition will believe most anything.

The hilarious evidence of this is posted on topix daily in dozens of forums.

I find it amusing to go to religious forums and then post nonreligious items or alternate philosophies and promote another competing superstition aka faith.

This is the true test of the love of religious love...

Actually there isn't any love but there's a lot of anger if you don't believe their superstition.

The obligatory " you're going to burn in hell " or be cast upon the lake of fire " is funny every time I see it.

A occasional infidel doesn't hurt either.

What do you expect from a bunny wabbit?

Add that to the list:

Dinosaurs had no DNA

People collect asteroids

Everyone is an atheist

Stalin was not an atheist

nobody has ever killed for atheism

A computer chip exceeds the human brain

...

It's true, the things you "learn" here is staggering.

You're getting angry in your old age.

I asked if she was praying out loud.

If she was, it was disruptive. And yes. So would shuffling cards be.

Tell me.

Do you think Christian students would be tolerant of a student saying satanist prayers out loud in class?
