Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent. Full Story

Ah, is that how he works. He has simultaneously claimed that the Bible must be taken literally while acknowledging it has factual errors in it.
Meh. He's welcome to believe whatever he wants to believe.
That's been my experience. I went out of my way to supply sourced information(not just bare assertions), from >Christian< scholars, from numerous viewpoints etc.., and his rebuttals consisted of - you guessed it - bare assertions and incite emotion based words or phrase. No real rebuttal, and that was to the portions of the post he replied to, not the parts he creatively edited out.

I almost invariably respond to any and every post in full, to the point of filling an entire 4000 word limit - and then some - because I don't want to deflect away or not confront every point raised.

I ignored one of his once(that issue had been addressed in essence, previously), and he was in butt hurt city.

Yet, it's commonplace for him to edit out entire portions of your response, and use those incite emotion words "REVISIONIST!...PROPAGAND A!...ANTI CHRISTIAN!..YOU NON SUPERNATURALIST!, to what remains.

So, I dunno, maybe it'll be different for you, but I suspect not.

Stop whining. Seem to think you are free to print propanganda without being called on your shots. Still believe Jesus probably existed and had some followers? Wheras the experts in history have him down as baptised by John and killed under Pilate? You are in denial. Looks like i get free rent in your head, since you take the time to post about me in the third person. Get a life.

I have to say something that may interest you. I shouldn’t be posting it here – no idea why I’m telling this secret to you at all, really. But here it goes. We discovered a massive anomaly in our genetic research. As many of you know, I’m investigating a Vit A pathway involved in malaria…anyways, we ordered a copy of the chromosome containing the pathway and sequenced some foods important to this early Chinese population where the mutation evolved (ha! Evolution…oh…read on)– wet rice, pig and a kind of fruit.

I was shocked to notice an identical copy in the rice – impossible! I thought I’d contaminated the copy. Evolution doesn’t do that; each species has its own phylogeny, right? So I re-did the sequencing and it came out the same. I did it ten times more that night, not getting any sleep, and each time, the same. This strand of rice and human genetic material were identical. So I sequenced the pig – same results. Totally impossible! They found me sleeping in the lab and forced me to go home so I didn’t share my results with anyone that night.

Going over the results – again and again, so many times – I found a fatty-acid in a ring shape that contains a Higgs-Boson particle. No kidding, right? It should not be there. Fatty acids don’t bond to DNA like that, but there it was. I think other studies missed it b/c when you sequence DNA you just don’t use fatty acids, so the tests ignore them. Anyways, turns out it’s a controlling instruction set. It directs other controller genes (called HOX genes) to produce a given set of *species* specific information. As of yet I don’t know how it does this, but I’m guessing b/c epigenetics, via a calcium feedback loop, are monitoring the womb/early environment and going “ok, human” then communicating this information to the C-fatty acid.

Why are we calling it a C-fatty acid? Well…this is really hard for me…evolution doesn’t work this way. It cannot work this way. All species cannot have identical genetics (but not identical mutation – microevolution, right?) and a master controller. So it’s quite clear species on Earth are Designed. I hope you’ll forgive me that I named the fatty-acid “Creator-fatty acid.” I’m still an atheist, so I can’t say which deity made this, but…

Yeah. So we’re not going to publish. I can’t overturn accepted theory – what would biology do? We’re just going to destroy these results and toss out the datasets. Maybe 20 years from now, biological science will be ready. But not now.

Thank you for listening.

That fatty acid in a ring shape with the Higgs's boson.

Sounds like IANS wore that donut down doing laps. Bet he still won't admit they aren't infinite now. But you have scientific proof.

You shouldn't let friends into your lab. That probably fell through the pocket he kept it in.

Thanks for sharing.

Come to think of it, IANS has been missing for a few days.

You know he hasn't been doing those laps around that donut with his feet. Too big. He has been doing it with his mind in his spare time.

That little fatty acid ring and the Higg's boson in Hiding's lab.

I wonder...

Could IANS have made that final lap and then ran into God? Or a piece of him, anyhow? Right there on his donut. The resultant phase shifts sent Hiding further into the twilight zone, and IANS only God knows where?
