Anything and everything is worth talking about and working to a compromise. Just because you like one thing and hate another is no reason to allow the one and disallow the other. "Liking" or "Disliking" have no bearing on any issue.

You are certainly willing to learn, there is no doubt about that.

As for compromise, you should never compromise with a delusion, other than that, it's a good way to live. ;)

Scientists are allowed to change their minds; they can kill us with their drugs and chemicals, and they have and still do, and it is put down to progress.

They are only learning what was known in the first place! And if you don't think that evolutionists believe that every life form we see evolved from the first organism, then debate it with them.

And if you don't think Darwin's theory was evolution was prevention of extinction, what do you think it is? And if you have no thoughts, don't even consider yourself 'ignorant' on the subject, you are not even that competent to be called ignorant.

***Evolution is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organisation, including species, individual organisms and molecules such as DNA and proteins.[1]

Life on Earth originated and then evolved from a universal common ancestor approximately 3.8 billion years ago. Repeated speciation and the divergence of life can be inferred from shared sets of biochemical and morphological traits, or by shared DNA sequences.[2] These homologous traits and sequences are more similar among species that share a more recent common ancestor, and can be used to reconstruct evolutionary histories, using both existing species and the fossil record. Existing patterns of biodiversity have been shaped both by speciation and by extinction.[3]

Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace were the first to formulate a scientific argument for the theory of evolution by means of natural selection. Evolution by natural selection is a process that is inferred from three facts about populations: 1) more offspring are produced than can possibly survive, 2) traits vary among individuals, leading to different rates of survival and reproduction, and 3) trait differences are heritable.[4] Thus, when members of a population die they are replaced by the progeny of parents that were better adapted to survive and reproduce in the environment in which natural selection took place. This process creates and preserves traits that are seemingly fitted for the functional roles they perform.[5] Natural selection is the only known cause of adaptation, but not the only known cause of evolution. Other, nonadaptive causes of evolution include mutation and genetic drift.[6]

Sodium benzoate is added to soft drinks as a preservative and a bacteria-destroying agent. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America states that significant numbers of people report allergic reactions to the compound. The American Beverage Association reports another significant problem with the preservative in drinks: Soft drinks using ascorbic acid along with sodium benzoate, when slightly heated, carry the additional risk of the two ingredients combining to form a known cancer-causing compound called benzene.
Diet Soft Drinks

Sodium benzoate, also known as E211, is a major ingredient in diet soft drinks. The Center for Science in the Public Interest reports that benzoic acid has properties similar to E211 and also creates allergy problems, hives and aggravation of asthma conditions.

Diet Coke made by Coca-Cola does not contain sodium benzoate, a change that was made voluntarily by the company in 2008. Coca-Cola's other drinks, including Fanta and Sprite, continue to use E211 in production. The company states that alternatives to E211 impact preservation and change the taste of the product. Pepsi Max, as well as the diet versions of Mountain Dew, Sunkist Orange, Nestea and Nordic Mist, also continue to use the preservative throughout the world.

Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi and Lipton Diet Iced Tea have shifted to potassium benzoate and citric acid to act as preservatives in both canned and plastic-bottled soft drinks.

Main article: Evolution
The theory of evolution states that species change over time via mutation and sexual reproduction. Since DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) can be modified only before birth, it can be argued that a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that a creature similar to a chicken, but not a chicken, laid the first chicken eggs. These eggs then hatched into chickens that inbred to produce a living population.[13][14] Hence, in this light, both the chicken and the structure of its egg evolved simultaneously from birds that, while not of the same exact species, gradually became more and more like present-day chickens over time.

Absolutely disagree with you ~ to try not to work out what is meant from the Cryptic words of the Bible into what is happening to day is not worshiping forever as you think of it.

It is research and comprehension and seeking that which we want to find. My life has been absolutely filled with amazing things and yet my life should have been miserable. I have written on a book on why my life should have been miserable, but have proved why it wasn't miserable but GOD enhanced.

You judge me as a fool, and yet from a child of 8 I was helping an old lady who was in her 80's, and in return, I was given a Shetland Pony, Fury, and I have many tales to tell about that horse.

She died sitting in the ward of emergency at the hospital, of a massive heart attack. I was heart broken, and can still feel the pain of thinking of 'Nan' dying in her wheel chair, maybe alone.

Nearly 50 years later, my Mother unexpectedly died in my arms in the emergency room of a hospital, of a massive heart attack. That was June 9th this year and why I went to Peterborough to visit the graves of my loved ones.

I was ridiculed for caring for a Sister who had been burned to death ~ and jokes were told and laughed about her rotting in the ground.

I love GOD ~ and JESUS and the ANGELS, and thank GOD continually that I am not like those who can joke about 2.5 year old girls being burned to death by boys playing with matches.

However, I have a dried rose that I received when I went to see Anthony, our equivalent to John Edwards, and received messages from my Sister that were also proven, because I had not known what he told me, but it was proved by my Mother later on the phone.

I was also told that her short life was a sacrifice, and that she did it to be further Spiritually enhanced in her next life; a life you don't believe in.

I seek that knowledge and find it; you deny it and lose it!! And you have lost it, because everyone has it!!

Aspartame was going to be the dieter's delight and the great change for diabetics. The truth is so nasty. Instead of an aid it is a monster let loose in over 9,000 products through deception and falsified tests. In one test that was questioned in court, the persons involved admitted that test animals had had tumours removed and then been re-admitted to the test as if they were unaffected!

Aspartame must carry a warning to persons with phenylketonuria (PKU), Phenyiketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine. I saw children's orange flavoured vitamin pills without such a warning early in 2001. One out of 20,000 babies is born without the ability to metabolise phenylalanine, one of the two amino acids in aspartame. Toxic levels of this substance in the blood can result in mental retardation.

Weight Gain from Aspartame - 951
"According to Dr. Wurtman, some consumers can easily reach consumption levels that have been linked in animal studies to adverse effects on brain chemicals. Ironically, he added, those using the sweetener to control calories may be defeating their purpose, since his studies show high levels of aspartame may trigger a craving for carbohydrates by depleting the brain of a chemical that registers carbohydrate satiety."

Mark Gold, researcher, states:
I would like to clear up a few issues involving aspartame. The evidence related to toxicity of aspartame is found in three main areas:

1. Formaldehyde Exposure.
The formaldehyde exposure from aspartame is significant. Aspartame breaks down into methanol, amino acids and several other chemicals. The methanol is quickly absorbed and converted into formaldehyde. The methanol found in foods and alcoholic beverages is also absorbed, but there are "protective chemicals [eg. ethanol] in these traditionally ingested foods and beverages that prevent the conversion of methanol to formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde is known to cause gradual damage to the nervous system, the immune system and has recently been shown to cause irreversible genetic damage at long-term, low-level exposure.

Oh, and the flu vaccine has always been "DNA based."
***As the flu sweeps the USA, offices and classrooms face empty chairs while hospital emergency departments confront overflow crowds.

By Thursday, there were six deaths reported in Illinois and 18 deaths reported in Massachusetts, and 41 states reported high levels of illness.

Hardest hit: the East, South and Midwest, said Michael Jhung with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s influenza division. The West, Southwest and some parts of Maine and Wisconsin have had very little flu.

That’s small consolation to the miserable. For those who do fall ill, the flu is a stomach-churning, head-burning, cough-wracked, muscle-aching experience. It’s particularly dangerous for the elderly, young children and people who have compromised immunity because of other illnesses or chronic conditions such as diabetes or cancer.

The 2013 season is particularly wretched because one of the major strains in this year’s flu mix hasn’t been seen for five to nine years and people’s antibodies for it have waned, said Arnold Monto, a professor of epidemiology and member of the Infectious Diseases Society of America’s Influenza Advisory Group, which works with the CDC.

There are three types of flu circulating in the USA: H3N2, H1N1 and Influenza B. H3N2 is by far the most common and most likely to put people in the hospital with complications. All three are included in this year’s flu vaccine.

For those who haven’t been vaccinated, the chances are they don’t have antibodies for H3N2. It’s been nine years since the 2002-2003 flu season, when H3N2 was in high circulation in the country. That season, about 95 percent of the flu was made up of H3N2.
