That's a good one what about then the cold and so called warm blooded, how do they define mammal gives birth to a creationist wouldn't it seem, not sure how do you think you came about to be?

In this the now and do you feel that there was for you a before?

Have you had the experience ever that you already accomplished the now as well, and then the before to the ever after...

Some of the good writing we must draw from too not just the bitterness the angry the seek fault so we must have Sin, first the sin was I seek a much better flow than that of Religion in the sense that we all it all must surely fall...

So once upon a time there were that place tower upon tower and one day someone got so pissed off they tossed em, or he was drunk and fell off for the greater THING in that creation and to own something to make something and then to make something better was it your own yours to keep,

The world is a place to a ONE of furthermore in how many ways can we communicate?

It would seem that if we were so closely related as implied by the evolution theory, then religiosity would be readily apparent in the animal kingdom. I cannot even think of one example...can you?
There is some question about whether or not other animals have religion.
Some monogamous species hold something like wedding ceremonies.
I forgot where I read this, but elephants hold burial ceremonies for the dead.
(I don't see how anyone could bury an elephant, but apparently it's possible.)
We don't know how much of it is a ritual and how much of it is a sanitary precaution, but it looks like at least some of it is a ritual.
What's more, they hold these sessions in the evening, with all the participants facing toward the setting sun.
So it seems that symbolism is not an exclusive property of humans, either.
Yea, but these are elephants...such "rituals" would surely be more predominant in the great ape species...but I have heard of none at all.

as far as I can see, it's just a fancy word for religiousness.

It seems science is trying to find out if it's some sort of chemical in the brain, so the pharmaceuticals companies can come up with a drug that counter acts its effects...lol

Yeah, that whole global flood thing where he wiped out every single thing on the entire planet except for one specific wooden boat which he specifically told Noah to build.

All just a big whoopsie accident, right?

You have not addressed any thing. No explanation for evolution from non human to human to date.
Yes, I can see that you're incapable of addressing the content of anyone's posts which is why you only dismiss them out of hand. Such intellectual dishonesty is expected from fundies like yourself.

Keep in mind that your incredulity, denial and complete and total lack of evidence doth not an argument make.

Also keep in mind that that first linky has been unaddressed for nearly a year.

And that evolution has not been debunked by you fundies for nearly 150 years.

So any religious cult is called a religious cult, because its based on religious idea...but a science cult that is based on scientific ideas is called what?....whatever you want to call it? It's a science cult plain and simple. You can't change the standard just because you don't like the implications.
There are no cults based on scientific ideas. If they were scientific ideas they would not be cults. They are therefore simply referred to as cults, whether they be religious or not.

I still have not seen proof of any religiosity in the animal kingdom...like I said before,it virtually exist in all human cultures....so it should be easy to prove in evolutionary terms, if that be the case.
I'm not really buying this "animals can't communicate in abstract ideas..."
It should be readily apparent in nature, If this be the case.
I correct myself from my earlier posts, in that animals may be capable of abstract communication, but they are unable to communicate *complex* abstract ideas. There is an gorilla for example who has learned sign language, whether or not it's learned enough to grasp the concept of theism I don't know. But unfortunately it can't communicate it to other apes. But like I said, the concept of religion is explained in evolutionary terms as an extension of altruism, and it developed further from there.

It may be that in the future other species may develop the concept also. Only time will tell. Of course we don't know that dolphins and whales have not done so already. We're just not smart enough to understand their language.

Specifically, humans.

ALL concepts are the result of brain chemistry. Just not a specific bunch of chemicals.

Don't think you need to worry about any "atheist antibiotics" any time soon at any rate.
