Yup.
And I made a comment about felching.
And it bothered you because you're a homophobe.
You're a bigger idiot than you normally are today. Why do you think that is?

So I guess thats true, as far as science goes, at that point in time cells did not have a nuclei.
Just like the case for the existence of God, or any other supernatural claim, the absence of evidence means there is no evidence. Without evidence nothing exists. It may well exist in the future, or not, but until evidence is discovered, it does not exist.

Then according to your understanding of evidence, DNA did not exist until there was evidence for it.

Imagine that.

You'll have to take this up with some of the Topix atheists, like blacklaggon. He thinks science proves everything.
You remember Sean Bean in GoldenEye? 006, I think... Good guy turned bad guy and all.
Your lack of comprehension is shocking!!! When anything in question is observable and testable by science, when it becomes the absolute BEST explanation at this present time, it becomes a FACT. Another word for this process is proof. Use whatever word you like, science has PROVIDED us with the very best explanation. It seems as the ONLY way you can make your point is by using "word games." To bad you don't have observable proof like science. If you did, I guess we would all be believers, and all believing in the same God, great way to end the divisiveness caused by religion.

Why?
Who are you to dictate morals?
<quoted text>
Is that a fact? That no one created us?
Do you have evidence of life's elusive common ancestor to back up your claim?
Cuz if so, you're the only human that does.
It makes me better because we know that killing is wrong, killing has always been wrong, we as a species have determined that killing is morally wrong, so I am automatically better in moral terms than someone who kills.

We as a society have also deemed slavery and rape as being immoral and wrong, since our human morality is all we have to measure, then anyone that commits or endorses slavery and rape is both wrong and immoral. Therefore My morals are higher than the God you worship.

Every evolutionary biologist on the face of the planet can supply you with the evidence you are ignorant to. You'r really not well read are you!!!!

Science is silent on atheism.
We are all impressed by your capitalization abilities.

At what point was spontaneous generation a fact?

When was the Steady State theory a fact?

When was is fact that the liver circulated blood?

When was it fact that the Earth was the center of the universe?

So your problem seems to be with the inability of science to see the future. Strange mindset, very weird!!!!

Killing is not always wrong, dude.

If you killed a man in self defense, how is that wrong?
We as a society have also deemed slavery and rape as being immoral and wrong, since our human morality is all we have to measure, then anyone that commits or endorses slavery and rape is both wrong and immoral. Therefore My morals are higher than the God you worship.
Which society are you referring to?

In some societies, rape and slavery is still legal and deemed moral.

You made the claim.

Why can't you back it up?

Do you think abiogenesis is real?

Oh, and if you're gonna talk shit about someone being stupid, at least spell "you're" right in your shit-talking sentence...

Of course no one created us, we are in fact a product of evolution.

You were in the US Army right?

The US Army has killed humans and even civilians.

There have been atrocities done by members of the US Army going back before the Civil War. Those atrocities even include rape of civilians.

Does this mean that you too are a murder and rapist? You were a member of that organization.

This is how you’re painting God. In my example I haven’t shown you how the US Army help liberate Europe from a evil dictatorship. Saving perhaps millions of civilians including Jews who were being starved to death,

Doctor you don’t live by your own standard. You paint God as evil yet paint yourself as more righteous than God. Your mind is polluted with self righteousness.

Germs didn't exist until we discovered them...

No.

You wrote: "When anything in question is observable and testable by science, when it becomes the absolute BEST explanation at this present time, it becomes a FACT."

Spontaneous generation was NEVER a fact, even though it was the best explanation for the time (2,000 years).

The Earth has NEVER been the center of the universe, even though it was the best explanation science had.

What the hell is wrong with you?

I looked at all Thinking's replies and I can't seem to find any that would warrant your "homophobe" test.
If there is, please show me.
I think you blurted out your stupid comment hoping that Thinking was female, then you found out a few posts later that Thinking is indeed a male, and this is a rather desperate attempt to cover another of your many asinine replies. You're attempting to hide your stupidity, but that's never an option for you.

Does anyone really care what you think? Like it really matters?
