Why not read both? They're symmetrical.
Oh! that's right if you were to do that you would realize your life is based on a myth.


That's your ignorant opinion.
By the way fairy tales are for children.
no kidding, why are you still reading them?

Why *should* they have? Were the mutations available to do so?

That feeling is called euphoria, they even make drugs that can cause it. There are plants that can cause it as well. It's not an uncommon response to stimuli, but to conflate it with something supernatural is akin to insanity.

Most causes of this euphoria are an evolutionary trait, common to most complex life forms though the triggers vary, which gives us the advantage of culture and unity as a species, a very potent advantage in nature. However humans are slowly losing this trait, which is of no matter since nature has far less power over us now, due to selective breeding.

I'd like to know how much time they think it took for a little or big old fishy to grow eyelashes, eyebrows & ears. Did they do this under water? Did their lungs develop under water - requiring them to breathe air and not suck water through their gills or did they clumsily thrash around on land until they grew legs and arms? Were they hairy eyelashing eyebrowing fishies waiting patiently for their legs to grow so they could walk? How long do they think it took for this hairy fish to walk? What did they eat in the meantime? Have they thought about anything logical??

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Einstein is probably the best known and most highly revered scientist of the twentieth century, and is associated with major revolutions in our thinking about time, gravity, and the conversion of matter to energy (E=mc2). Although never coming to belief in a personal God, he recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe. The Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in "Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists." This actually motivated his interest in science, as he once remarked to a young physicist: "I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." Einstein's famous epithet on the "uncertainty principle" was "God does not play dice" - and to him this was a real statement about a God in whom he believed. A famous saying of his was "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

from the past...

Francis Sellers Collins (born April 14, 1950), is an American physician-geneticist noted for his discoveries of disease genes and his leadership of the Human Genome Project (HGP). He currently serves as Director of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Prior to being appointed Director, he was the founder and president of the BioLogos Foundation, an organization which promotes discourse on the relationship between science and religion and advocates the perspective that belief in Christianity can be reconciled with acceptance of evolution and science.[1] Collins also wrote the New York Times bestseller, The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief, which discusses Collins' conversion from atheism to Christianity, evaluates the evidence for Christianity, and argues for theistic evolution.[2] In 2009 Pope Benedict XVI appointed Collins to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.[3]

So the feeling of euphoria is spontanous?

Or does something have to cause it?

I think the latter.

When God touched me, I was whatever is opposite of euphoric & at the snap of a finger, I felt content.

it was not imagined. I'm not lying. Have faith.

It is proven by science that the chicken had to arrive before the egg purely and simply due to the fact that the egg needs proteins to - actually, here is the info;

British scientists claim to have solved one of the great mysteries of life, the universe and everything in it: The chicken came before the egg, they say, and they're not mincing words.

"It had long been suspected that the egg came first, but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first," Sheffield University's Dr Colin Freeman, according to a report in the Metro.

Researchers from Scotland and England used a supercomputer called HECToR to look in such detail at a chicken eggshell that they were able to determine the vital role of a protein used to kick-start the egg's formation.

That protein is only found, wait for it... inside a chicken.

http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-205_162-6676542.h...

How did a chicken create an egg? From which fishy or bacteria do you think a chicken evolved from? Obviously, a rooster is required to fertilize the egg; how do you think evolution created the chicken and the rooster and how do you think evolution gave the chicken the necessary ability to create, lay and hatch an egg? At what point did the chicken know it had to sit on its fertile eggs to hatch them??

***Freeman, who worked on HECToR with counterparts at Edinburgh's Warwick University, said the protein had been identified earlier by scientists and was known to be linked to egg formation, "but by examining it closely we have been able to see how it controls the process," he added, describing it as a catalyst.

Professor John Harding, who also took part in the research, told Metro the discovery could have other applications.

"Understanding how chickens make shells is fascinating in itself, but can also give clues towards designing new materials." he said.***

how many questions have you asked about the beginning and how life began? Have you questioned where birds came from? Have you questioned caterpillars and butterflies? Have you questioned anything at all or just blindly accepted what you have accepted because anything else is too hard???

The big bang theory.... when do you think they will come up with a real name, one that is not to be laughed at? Or do you think they have outgrown the old ideas and are working on new ones?

I find it strange that they use something like the big bang theory, which is unproven, to "prove" so many things & pose so many arguments...

They do the same with things like dark matter...

I understand that these people aren't scientists, although some claim to be (LOL).

I've noticed what they're really good at is copy/paste.
