Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Of course.
And that's a good point. How the hell did a fish learn to fish?
Have you seen the bird of paradise (strelitzia reginae)? How the hell did a plant learn to grow like a bird?!
That's some magical evolution right there!
The same basic mechanisms apply whether we consider a species mundane or wondrous.

These features really aren't that surprising.

I wouldn't expect to see naturally occurring fire breathing dragons or plants that produce fruit with bar codes on them.

I might expect to see sharks with frikin lasers attached to their heads, but only in a secret lair.

How does an organism "develop" a system? What would prompt it to consider "developing" a system.
There is a lot of "evolved" used by evolutionists, but almost no nuts and bolts on how. Such would lend great credence to the theory.
How are these changes effected on the molecular level? Understand there is not supposed to be some guy moulding this stuff in his fingers. It is supposed to initiate these actions on its own.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with rocks, strings and magnet thingies ... or something like that.

Did your son have an argument with his father, then tell him to "F off!" That could have got him stoned to death in the OT.
No, my boys don't talk like that. They're not teenagers yet, lol.

You mean the nice parts of the bible, right? The church doesn't really teach those, at least not by example. Does the church treat gays and atheists as it would like to be treated in accordance with the Golden Rule? And what is love according to the bible and/or the church?
Incidentally, just about every ethical system would frown on abandoning your family, not just Christianity, which bring us to this:
No they don't. But I certainly try to treat them well.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Humanist values and Christian values overlap in many places, and are in contradiction in others. Which area in which they differ do you think that Christianity offers the superior value, and why do you think that it is superior? If your only answer is because you believe that a god said so, you can give that, but I probably don't have to tell you that it won't be persuasive.
No it doesn't

Been there.
It talks about a blue glow caused by radiation.
However, we don't know what type of radiation Moses experienced. We just hear a very likely explanation we would expect from someone unfamiliar with it.
More interesting? You ignore what we do know about radiation expressed in the passage;
~Deadly.
~Three types of shielding and a restricted view.
~Effects diminish over time and are renewed by renewed contact.
~Most profound? The effect on a tribe lost in the desert that we know today as the Jews.
You can spout all day about what we don't understand. I want you to explain what we do see.

If there's been 4 billion years of evolution, don't ya think we would've found loads of evidence to support evolution?
We have found loads of evidence. It's up to you to catch up with the rest of us.

I mean, for every animal we see today, it had billions or trillions of ancestors. From bacteria to figs to frog to lizard to mouse to bird to ape to man and everything in between.
Where's all the inbetweens?
Only a very very small fraction of organisms that lived on Earth left behind fossils to find. Every one we find is "inbetween" its parents and its offspring, if it had offspring.

The "missing link" meme is bullshit.

This is usually the first stop along the Christian Ignorance of Evolution Tour. I thought you were beyond it.

Try to go the whole day without insulting me.

If you do, I'll take a Topix day off and the room is all yours.

Environmental stability is a big factor, yep yep.
