Hey dude.

I'm not sure if I have already white-sheeted you.

Sometimes it's hard to remember.

Just in case, let me make sure.

Catcher white sheet is lowered on you.

You no longer exist.

You can quote me on that.
Have you ever picked up a bible and truly taken the time and studied it like you did in school so you could get an A+ on your test paper. 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.

If you are a fan of Collins, then why do you have problems with evolution?
I have no problem with evolution, however I do have a problem believing we are the ancestors of fish or bacteria or alien organisms...

I have no doubts that we are miracles and too miraculous to be the result of some doubtful beginning. But it is not only that, it is the things that have happened also in my life that support and indeed deepen my Faith. The older I get, the more firmly I believe!

Yeah Richard Hawking is a cryptozoologist who is searching for flying spaghetti monsters, Invisible unicorns , God and a devilishly attractive female to breed with.

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?

Look what religion is doing to the world, making us fight each other. It's time to put down your bible and run away from the churches and mosques and synagogs , they are the damnation and destruction of humanity.

***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.

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

I think evolution is more befiting a real God than a magic trick with clay figures.

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.
