The Irish football team is not at its best but has been great in the past, their beer is excellent and I don't think your Mary was Irish.

This I will criticise them for, though: www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/05/magdalen...

No, really. Your avatar picture promotes war and weapons of war which indicates that you believe the question is "Who Would Jesus Kill". If that's what groveling before your particular deity teaches it's "sheep" then I honestly and truly hope that such a deity does not exist.

<quoted text>Macroevolution has been directly observed in the wild as in labs.

The only reason Creationists reject it is because it conflicts with their fundamentalist religious views.

Tom Jones wrote, "
There is a struggle for cultural domination: Science or God,
"

All the scientists who support evolution have wildly diverse cultural backgrounds: Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, nonreligious, liberal, conservative.

All the people who oppose evolution have basically the same background: fundamentalist Abrahamic religion.

But it's the SCIENTISTS whose culture is causing their position? That's funny.

<quoted text>Being incomplete does not invalidate it as evidence.

If I have a photo album with a picture of Mary in North Carolina on Monday, South Carolina on Tuesday, Georgia on Wednesday, and Florida on Thursday, that's good evidence indicating Mary took a trip from NC to FL, even if we don't have a 10 hour video documenting every mile she drove.
You don't have those photos.

You have a picture of Mary and one of John and another of a chimp. So you then draw a line connecting what you think are dots that John and Mary had a chimp baby.

Since you aren't one you don't get to define one, which is basically the reason the definition is one YOU agree with.
But atheists do NOT! Dipshit, you have been told this countless times and still want it to be true when you know it isn't.

Maybe you don't get what the poe/troll/fundie is doing? He doesn't need to answer your questions, survey your information, or read the bible! He simply denies everything you say and claims that you cannot prove anything and he can; but he doesn't.

The poe/troll/fundie is an odd sort, his only way of getting attention is playing the asshole. After he loses your interest, he changes his name, comes back and starts the same BS that played before.

Think about! How stupid would someone have to be? To see all the evidence and still claim that he didn't see a thing? Or that 98% of the scientific community got together to create this big lie?

There is mucho truth in what you say.

Topix atheists have the freedom to define reality the way they feel it should be, the world be damned. They will exercise their rights. Deal with it, world.

You may very well construct more straw men in one day than the entire mid-west did in the spring of 1954.
