Your belief of evolution is HINGED on the assumption that all life came from one life.
And that guess is being taught to our youth as fact.
But ToE says nothing about how that life started.

Was that your point?

Thank you.

Keep it out of legislation.

Keep it of public property.

That is because they are following a carefully constructed script and th logic based upon it. You have to understand this premise before you can understand that one, and the next, and the next, and the next before you get back to the same place. Same as studying Scriptures. With the same belief in the inerrancy of the logic.
What script? Your delusions donít count.

Dave, do you have a degree in mathematical sciences? Number theory? Then you views and what you posted are irrelevant
Lions, christians, thatís a great idea, whenís the davesworld management putting on the show?
Actually is was pre christian Greeks that set the stage for modern mathematics and Islam that set the stage for modern science. Christianity tried to inhibit science, just ask Galileo
Again, what you think is irrelevant.
This Greek mathematics?

No degrees in math, sweetie. Just the ability to fix physical things they can't.

Do you have any nude pictures of yourself, or sexual activities you engage in that you can share with us? Something interesting since you aren't bringing much in the way of intellectual thought to these discussions. Pseudo and stamped out copies of such don't count.

Only to you people like you with little understanding

To me it means a hypothetical means by which living organisms are created from nonliving matter.

Honey just because the process is not yet fully understood (but it is being worked on) does not mean you can throw in the town and say ďI donít understand do goddiditĒ

Sweetness, you are but a pixel on the screen. Try to exercise something that was placed into your makeup. The ability for your mind to occupy another space before your body hits the screen. Look at the picture you are a part of from a higher vantage point. If you can muster the ability.
Yes you are and you are also deluding yourself but we can expect little more from a resident of Davesworld

Ahh you are talking about imagination, yes? I have a very vivid imagination, I use it in my work and that is why I am so successful in that work. However I am fully capable of separating imagination from reality, unlike the residents of Davesworld

Greek mathematics spanned much more than one guy, the first really well documented mathematician was Thales (although mathematics was known for hundreds of years before his life) and continues past Archimedes

No degree but an imagination born of Daveworld delusion and a belief in magic

And I must not forget to switch the gravity off

There have been countless scientists that were scientists because they tried to figure out how "goddidit", lovey.

They are the ones that brought modern science to you to hijack with your numerology.

Michael Faraday for one. Your modern science wouldn't exist without what he did.

Perhaps the imagination relating to you of that sort may be better than the real thing. More fulfilling or satisfying.

David,

You should know that Jesus frowns upon those sheep in his flock that have the temerity to view nudity.

Tsk Tsk - that will take 100 our fathers and 2000 hail mary's to correct.

Waves, harmonics. Instruments sensitive enough to pick up frequencies we weren't designed to. One little rock. Felt all over the planet. Think of all the other energies occurring all of the time.
The earth is not as "solid" as you think.
Solids tend to conduct sound faster than gases or liquids.

Some of our Topix atheist on here who claim to be devotees of "science" are like Alice in Wonderland.

By they might consider themselves spelunkers.

They are out in the bright and colorful world. They trip on a hole, then see another hole leading down away from that hole. They grab a shovel and start digging, curious as to where it leads. Then they find a cave and start following it, gatherin gmore knowledge of the path as they go deeper and deeper into the cave, then the cave system. They are discovering something. Wow!! Look what they found!!! The universe is made of caves!!

While on the surface and in the sunlight everyone is wondering where in the hell did Christine go?

Because of the increased tension of the charges. "Tighter" webs.
