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.

You're both mistaken. Whales are very well adapted, but have "evolutionary baggage" because of where they came from. That's what Blacklagoon is talking about. It's not poor adaptation, though, it's a phylogenetic history that, as time goes on, will continue to be selected against (although it's more accurate to say that mutations that damage the genes that produce these ancestral traits, like the hind limb buds, will not be selected against - I'm probably writing above your level here, Eagle, sorry).
Sharks are not machines. They are organic, intelligent creatures, too. They have been observed engaged in sophisticated pack hunting. A group of sharks will surround a school of fish in the same manner that dolphins do. They keep them schooling, trapped, in the middle. Then, one by one, the sharks will swim in to eat their fill and then return to the line.
Whales and sharks do not normally compete for the same food. So they're not in direct competition all that often. Each has created a niche, a way of exploiting the environment for energy and each does this so well that they remain extant, surviving and reproducing. It's true that sharks attack whales for their babies and weak, but it's also true that whales attack sharks and that whales have complex solutions to ward off the predation of sharks.
I don't think I ever said that Whales were not well adapted to their environment, I said they were poorly designed creatures considering their aquatic environment.

I'm a mature adult, I don't watch children's shows. I know about both because both my grandchildren watch it. Both are utterly inane.

<quoted text>Here is the evidence. If they lied,then these posts would not exist. I even provided the links. They will lie to you tomorrow and tell you that you did not read them. Boooots is on mental illness medication and I suspect that they are too. Since, Hiding mentioned Eagle12, then just ask him. Dave Nelson just tries to stay out of their mess.

.. good point, Boooots. Don't think Patricia understands boundaries because she repeatedly crosses lines drawn in the sand by others and allows everyone to violate her boundaries by responding to vile, obnoxious posts ..
.. that means only one thing: her boundaries were constantly violated ..

.. no, no, no - Passing Through didn't invade Patricia's privacy, she volunteered all the information. Would you like me to post links where she revealed her true name, parents' names, education, physical description or date of birth ??..
P.S. You forgot to answer my one burning questions - are you hot?

Atheists are not allowed to even taste Ezekiel bread because it is only for the truest of believers. I am donating all of it to Eagle and RR's church!

Trust me on this one hiding you don't want to taste this because it tastes like their god. In fact their god is the secret ingredient!

He's exhibiting symptoms of several personality disorders right now.

He's a salad bar of mental illness.

I'd like him to seek help.
