The world keeps getting better. The major thing slowing progress is religion.

Fortunately, in much of the world religious wackos like you are not allowed to commit mass atrocities anymore.

You should move to central Africa, you would love it.

<quoted text>it's very odd that you think so cuz Jesus Himself said "be it on to you according to your faith"

is it possible that the problem lies with you/your faith and not with the Ruler of EVERYTHING???
No.

Your statement implies that there were some with differences prior to 6000 years ago.
What about them?
We have no writings prior to 4000 BC. We don't know what pre-4000 BC people thought about anything.

Interesting that these Fundies claim in one breath that the USA is a Christian country with 97% of the population and politicians being Christians then in the next breath claim the USA is over-run by atheists.

The contradiction is a result of either stupidity or deceit. I believe it is both.

Haven't seen any here yet, but the returning robin has laid two of her normal 3-4 eggs in the nest on the back porch. The hummingbirds will be along shortly.
Do you get the Rufous hummingbirds passing through there?

Amazing how much aggressiveness and fearlessness can be packed in such a tiny package.

I lived in northern New Mexico and we would get swarms of different species passing through. Lots and lots of hummingbirds until their migrations got settled down.

They have petroglyphs and pictograms older than that that gave a pretty good idea.

If you took the time to carve into rock then what you carved meant something to you. It isn't what you call doodling. That is what sticks and sand was made for.

Except in your mind. To you it was an absolute truth.
You need to break out of your emotional prison,
You and the others preach we are just freak accidents of the universe, but your ego and emotions won't let you practice it. You have too much anger to be a rational thinker.
Life may be endemic to the universe. It may form just as readily as a crystal. You simply follow your giant ego with you suppositions that humans are the only reason everything exists. In other words you are full of shiite!

You are still not being clear. In fact, you seem to be masking something instead.
I looked at the paper - nope - nothing on a fallen world. Lots of things people are doing in this world, but a fallen one? Uh-uh - you are fantasizing - or under the influence of being brainwashed.
Which is it?
i am the arch nemesis of whatever you are!

now can we please just agree to disagree about everything and move on from these circular aguments?:-)

Yeah. Because the newspaper always prints the good news.
While I agree it's a failing-not fallen-world, I see the bulk of the damage and inability to progress to be caused by religion. Not just yours, but practically all of them.
You, and the many people like you, will never learn to accept that yours are not the only beliefs and that your beliefs don't work for everybody.
Look what they've done to you.
batty said "I see the bulk of the damage and inability to progress to be caused by religion. Not just yours, but practically all of them"

i can agree to a point, but i would say that MOST of the damage IS caused by YOUR religion.

the only way to escape the snares of religion intirely, is to be redeemed by Jesus Christ!
