<quoted text>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??
Makes you wonder why your deity would throw a foreskin into the mix and then have its "chosen people" whack it off.

Eh?

Crazy myths.

***Hawking: no God behind the Big Bang

UPDATE: Apparently you can now participate in the Times discussion of Hawking’s article, with Richard Dawkins and two Times writers, for free. Go here. Remember, it starts at 9:30 EST, which is ten minutes from this posting.

UPDATE 2: Check out the discussion: Dawkins is making mincemeat of the Times religion editor, who’s bobbing, weaving, and ducking the hard questions. It’s a rout!

So much for physics revealing “the mind of God.” Lest anybody still think that Stephen Hawking is religious, even in a deistic sense, check out his new book, The Grand Design (coauthored with American physicist Leonard Miodinow), available in the US September 7. Here’s part of Hawkings’s precis, taken from the Amazon listing:

You should have plenty of problems believing we are the ancestors of fish or alien organisms. That would involve time travel and space flight to inhabited worlds, none of which have been discovered yet.

I urge you to pick up the bible and try as you and I know you never have Try rhe King Jame or the New King James or the American Standard or new American Standard or my favorite which is the New Living Translation because of the ease it is to read and absorb the information, give it a try as we are talking about saving your soul from eternal separation from God.
Actually I did , including the ones King James forgot to put in, like the Book of Enoch, The Testament of Solomon , The Kabbalah

If there was an intelligent designer why are there so many mistakes? Why would there even be evolution as everything would be perfectly designed for their environment and there would be no need for change.
Have you compared the incident rates of 'mistakes'? How many are perfectly normal to a degree and now many aren't? Probably the highest statistics of being normal are those that are natural

Exactly my point , you became one in your mind.
Now your temple is guarded by an imaginary host , and you a slave to
your imaginary friend. Hitler did the same thing.

That's nice but God tells you that the bible is complete and no need to cause yourself to be confused, so just stick to what God tells you to. God has said not to sdd or tske swsy from the bible for a reason, that being false doctrone. Don't you think if God wanted this other information in his bible he would've added it to it . Stay away from things like your talking asout and stick to what God wants you to know as he is smarter than you and I. Isaiah 55:8-9
My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

Right.

Medical findings present that, realistically, the foreskin is fraught with some problems that don't indicate a "divine origin".

This is where you can assert that "sin" brought about the problems, not the deity.

Maybe the deity was a little lazy or distracted during that process, among the many others that just didn't work like the deity planned, or...

It's myth, created by ancient peoples trying to explain their place in the world.

A deity myth that is only one among many, and not unique or singular.

God told you this he did?
God prefers you to stay uninformed he does?
Or did some men in 325 AD decide what you were supposed to read?

Okay now learn the word of the day :)
Remember it , because god wanted you to know.
