<quoted text>Just because he does not share your skewed and misappropriated view of evolution, does not mean that he does not understand it. Consensus to agree with you, does not equate to understanding and neither does consensus to a common idea. For instance, you think that lab breeding is evolution and it is not, and neither is dropping a bomb on millions and changing the makeup of that country, nor invading a country and exterminating them, because you can.

The problem with evolution even in a theoretical soup, is that much of it is not natural, even in observation. You can not obvserve the nature of a lion, while you have it caged. It is like observing gays who died of AIDS, and then promoting that as a study of gays. Oh yeah, they did that, despite the fact that normal peopleknow that AIDS is not innate or natural, even for gays. Based, on your theory with gays accounting for upwards of 80% of all AIDS cases, that would have to be evolution and the 53% suicides being gays would also have to be evolution.

Care to recant.
Are you serious?!

If your intent was to learn, then Buck and Dave would have reached you long ago, like they did her, and caused her to build her cocoon.

This is where you cry, whine, and pout and ask for help, and hope you have not embarassed yourself too much.:)
I'm simply amazed that somebody as daft as you can even function in modern society.

Why, then spend the rest of the post with a copuy/paste of some other professionals opinion, which is not yours. If you could understand it, then you would provide the link, but explain it in your own words. I mean, you being a professional in the field and all of that stuff, you know!
She's done that, ad infinitum, to morons like you to no avail.

Why she still even wastes time on idiots like you is beyond me.

Hopefully, somebody with half a brain reads her.

Hfy is scientifically driven to find methodically the answer to
problems beyond your scope of comprehension. Actually this is beyond the scope of anyone who presents a case from a theological position which , point in case so happens to be philosophically and ideologically driven agendas.

The technologically and scientifically driven minds are more in alignment with logically driven understanding , and not corrupted by agenda driven preferences like so many theist thinking minds are. In fact I embarrass myself often enough but do not make the mistake of the theist , and not acknowledge that in fact are flawed and human with these frailties.

All in all points considered Buck as well as Dave are both your superior, but fall short due to the limitation's they impose on themselves. That means you are in the dust of Dave. Tell us now how that feels?
That's embarrassing.

But thanks for throwing that in my face, I appreciate it.

"Unlike me, you know almost nothing." eh? You seem to know a lot about ONE thing, bullshit.
It's possible to learn things without a college education.

It would appear you haven't bothered.

It's only mentioned a few times, it's not that big of a deal as you think.

My bigotry of gays stems from the attitude of gays. They think that because they're gay, everyone needs to accept them & move on. That's the wrong attitute to have.
Why?

<quoted text>I don't believe that at all, quite the contrary. It's atheists that "actually believe that their inability to imagine something and their lack of knowledge of something are arguments against that thing".

Atheists, it seems, live their lives with a very closed mind with almost no ability to imagine or dream, because imagiation & dreams can't be proven.

<quoted text>If you take anything written by man as an absolute truth you are doing so based on faith in the veracity of the writer, and subject to personal interpretations of the words used.

You're gonna lose if you bet your life's savings on it.

In this instance of the gentleman's reasons, he needs to go back to the first few pages of that book. In the beginning. Man got cast out and was then on born to suffer on his own. Getting back to the good life is an individual endeavor. Whining and moaning don't do it. Simple fact is you have to dissociate yourself from greater mankind, being just one of the herd and its mindset, to establishing a personal relationship with the creative force so you can find the way back. Mankind is in the open range, not in a dairy barn.

However, feel free to continue saying moo if it suits you. If you feel you are one of the smartest cows in the herd, why would you want to complicate your life here any? Just hope the cattle trucks and cowboys don't show up. Those smarts that gave you status in the herd ain't going to do you much good by that time.

:-)

Good morning, sweetie.

<smooch>
I'd hardly say that atheists, being the tiny minority we are, can be accused of having a herd mentality.

In fact, it's been said that trying to organize atheists is akin to herding cats.

I don't know if you know what that means. In case you don't, cats are very difficult to herd.

What was that you said?

Moo?
