the god of the bible would be in jail in our society. the mythical god of the bible was a jealous, vindictive, petty little prick who would have had his kids taken away by child services in any modern, rational society.
and these cult members worship this shit...
sad...very sad...
Oh?

So Jesus gave you that impression, eh?

Not sacrifice, love, healing the sick, preaching of loving thy neighbor, and taking care of your family?

My, I think you are right. He would be hated by most gays, liberals, and the Media. You might be on to something!

Looks like I caught you lying.
Here is my post again:
I have no mythology.
Modern day science does not support evolution, no more than science supported flat-earth.
I stated SCIENCE, NOT A SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATION, does not support evolution. Organizations are human, and easily influenced, and have agendas.
Well, since "Science" does not respond to questions, I can only rely on the the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of PROFESSIONAL SCIENTISTS represented in my post that day in and day out that actually DO science.

Those PROFESSIONAL SCIENTISTS say that modern-day science FULLY supports evolution. As indicated in my post.

You know that's not what I stated, but if you wish to attempt that route, demonstrate how there is "intelligence behind" the universe, first though, you must explain exactly what you mean by that.

This is an Evolution v. Creation discussion, not a theological discussion on beliefs.
I make no claim. And I support neither evolution or creation, and neither has any scientific evidence, and all data is subject to alternative interpretations.
You clearly have not studied anything scientific.

Instead, you were arguing that atrocities committed by the IRA justify mistreatment of the Irish.
Now please explain how atrocities committed by the IRA justify mistreatment of the Irish.

Ah, then I agree, but would raise those figures to %90.

God is also a Libertarian. If we obey his very limited laws, we don't need government, or all those silly taxes and regulations. God doesn't like taxes, or titles of nobility. Why, Adam and Eve could have lived the Libertarian dream forever, no clothes, sex whenever, living off the land, and enjoying life.

The problem is the secular Libertarian, such as yourself, is that your beliefs are ultimately based on two main sources.

Thomas Aquinas and his assertion that government is below the people, and subject to the people, and the Founders that agreed, though because mostly Protrestants, couldn't site their Catholic sources for Libertarianism (which is merely call Christianity and free will.) And Ayn Rand is the second source, practically the founder of the Libertarian Party and Reason Magazine, and friends of Reagan.

The problem with Ayn is that she was a Jew, and expressed her Jewish beliefs in secular terms, either wittingly or unwittingly.

Just examine your Libertarian motto. "I, for the love of my life, swear not to live for the sake of any other man, nor ask another man to live for mine."

Right?

We Christians sum it up slightly differently. I, for the love of God, swear not to live for any man, or ask any man to live for us.

Real conservative? Nay, Libertarians and Christians, and Jews, are radical liberals of the most extreme kind, REAL Liberals, not the fake pansies that demand special rights for gays and government officials.

Then you are a victim of bad Catholicism for the last 150 years.
One, religion cannot be personal. If one knows the truth, then you have an obligation to share it, and enlighten others, which is exactly what Jesus taught. If you believe in God, then you'd be proclaiming that, and attempting to persuade others.
And a day will come when you will have to accept your cousin's honest attempt to save your soul and take him seriously, or admit that you despise him and his faith. Either your cousin is right, or he is wrong. There is no middle ground. Either you are right, or you are wrong, but your cousin has more than enough evidence to prove you are wrong ... if you but listen.
God bless.
Are you abgligated to share the truth that there is not one ipta of evidence that your god exists?

is lying to others part of the cult indoctrination?

Argument by authority?

In other words, logic fail ... again.

Sure, "professional" scientists support evolution. I never suggested otherwise.

But the actual application of the scientific principle does not support it. The model still doesn't work, and no amount of "professional" scientists can make a working model yet.

Got it? Good.

Not at all. Adaptation cannot change a species from one to another. The adaptation is already a part of its existing nature and DNA. Adaptation has absolutely nothing to do with evolution.
You are either ignorant of evolution and the model, or lying. Which is it?
Sure it can. that is a driving force of evolution.
