Maybe it was because your size and your grades. That bullying had a sizeable impact on your life. Sarcasm and cynicism comes from your childhood. It could even had derived from a relative.
Iím sorry that happened to you. Today there has been a little more focus on the problem of bullying. I can only hope you donít pass on those undesirable personality traits to your children and grandchildren.

No, I was bullied as a child, being butch in the early 80s wasn't cool until I got into junior high. Anyhow, I turned the tables on them quickly so it's meh. That still doesn't change that you are grasping at straws.

Note:ďScientist created,Ē the DNA didnít self create. Then scientist injected the man made DNA into a cell. The DNA then replicated itself. This is a case of forced assembly.
Man-made DNA has booted up a cell for the first time.
In a feat that is the culmination of two and a half years of tests and adjustments, researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute inserted artificial genetic material ó chemically printed, synthesized and assembled ó into cells that were then able to grow naturally.
What you said: "but they have not ever been able to create life from non living material."

This is what they did. Saying they did not implies there is something more to life than what we know of - something you can't prove. Here is a summary of the project:

"And after nearly 15 years of such toiling in his labs in Rockville, Md., J. Craig Venter, co-mapper of the human genome, has done just that. Reporting in the journal Science, he describes a remarkable experiment in which he and the team at his eponymous institute have pieced together the entire genome of a bacterium and then inserted those genetic instructions into another bacterium. The cell booted up, and life ó by nearly any definition ó was created."

Read the captions. Didn't see that. Nevertheless, I wasn't talking about fact, I was talking about the brain washing we all got as kids with the monkey-to-human evolutionary poster that was in nearly every science class in America.

Lots. Here one:
"Humans may not be descended from Neanderthals after all....."

Your evolutionary scientists can't even agree on what's what anymore.
I'm still trying to break out of the gravity brainwashing I received as a kid. I think that as soon as I do, I'll be able to fly.

I donít know if you have ever done in star gazing on a clear night away from the big cities. The beauty and awesomeness of the cosmos canít be described in human words. No Sir, it didnít just happen by accident.

You're math isn't adding up.
"At that rate there was 150 tons per second of rain falling on the decks of Noah's ark"
You're implying that there was 150 tons of water falling per second around the world to make up the height of Mt Everest in 40 days & nights.
Somehow you think that all the rainclouds were only above the ark, not around the world....
So which is is? Was there 150 tons of water falling for 40 days & 40 nights or not?
Oh, RR.

*yawn*

Typical Christian hypocrisy. Go read your Bible - I think you missed the second half of it or so.

Oh, and when you wonder why people are waking up and seeing why religion is bullshit - look at yourself. If God can't even "change the hearts" of assholes like you, how did he create everything?

<quoted text>This little joke was posted in FB via another Topix thread, and thought you might enjoy it too :)
***An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."
The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"
"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.
"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"
The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know sh#t?"
And then she went back to reading her book.***
Not very funny, but this one is:

A devout Christian is hit by a truck and is killed instantly, he see's the tunnel with the white light at the end and begins walking, closer and closer he gets, his excitement grows, just the thought of seeing God brings him to tears. He approaches the light, and soon he see's an image begin to take shape. The brightness of the light has blurred his vision, but soon he is standing before the image, as his sight returns he see's.......he see's........Gasp, and a cry escapes from deep inside, and he moans, "Holy shit, how could I have been so wrong." For before him stand SHIVA!!!!!!

Now thats funny. Of the thousands of Gods this dope picked the wrong one. Don't let that happen to you numbnuts, remember they can't ALL be the "right God." LOL
