That's cool and it just shows how IDiotic these people are. Even theists in other countries are dumbstruck at the stupidity of the ID movement. A Methodist Minister trolls me about it on Facebook!
I just respond that not all Americans are stupid enough to fall for ID and then pwn his face in on the MMO he plays with me and my buddies. He rolls a silly shadow priest and thinks he's going to dual my Deathknight. Not a prayer's chance he'll win I tell him!:))
He's pretty cool for a preacher man I must say.

You REALLY didn't read that article. He was Wiccan. And the VA couldn't approve a Wiccan headstone because there's no univeral, accepted Wiccan symbol.

Without testable hypotheses and repeatable results , all you have is personal opinion, and an ignorant faith based one at that.
Just because you don't KNOW about testability and repeatable results, doesn't mean they don't exist. It only means that you are ignorant. From your post we can all tell you are either a very young uneducated person, or just another brainwashed Theists who's stupidity is on display for all to see. Go read a science book, then get back to me, until then you look like a complete idiot!!!!

I have met some nice ones before. The Priest at Wifey's Catholic Church is actually a well read Dude. I was really just showing how insane the ID garbage is. Even Theists in other countries shake their head when they hear about it.

He may wish to reconsider that. When he sees what Buck really looks like even though he has those large breasts Dave may cut his eyes out instead of his fingers next time.

Nobody has a problem with that.
And that monument is to christians, at the exclusion of all others.
No it isn't.

The monument is to a person believed to have hung on one many years ago.

You know, kinda' like the monument to Washington, aptly called "The Washington Monument".

There are other examples. But I hope one is sufficient to clear up your confusion.

<quoted text> The disagreement is that you think we have it all figured out, when clearly we do not. There are many paradox right now and they are just the way that it is. We explain things as best as possible but are still lost when it come to conclusion about the universe as a whole.
No itís not, the argument is over the meaning and use of the word paradox

Se canít even agree what the argument is about -!!!

I know we have not got it figured out, I sometimes wish we had but then what would be left to argue with godbots over???

A paradox does not mean that something is not figured out, it means something that is self-contradictory. The universe is not self contradictory

Ya, true. I'd think it's kinda weird but I wouldn't try to stop them. As long as they're not sacrificing a goat or doing something illegal, I'd leave them be.
Yet, for some reason, you don't think that the central premise and iconography of your religion being a human sacrifice, is strange at all, and it's okay to promote that?

<quoted text>
How do you know nothing supernatural is present?

You can't possibly.

And if an unknown creative force were acting in natural processes, it would not be "supernatural" would it?

It would be natural.

Are you aware of every single thing that exists in natural processes?

If not, you can't judge whether something is "supernatural".

And if you did, and if it ever acted in natural processes, it would no longer be "supernatural".

Don't you hope I'm not watching next time you attempt to look smart?

I guess that settles the question - the word of a foreign theist and a rank idiot like you.

One wonders why those published and peer-reviewed PhDs trudge on with their ID research.

Evolution vs creation....a battle of the faiths.
Nope battle of science and facts vs faith and guesswork

Abiogensis and evolution are not the same thing, evolution is completely understood, abiogenesis isnít but science is working on it.
