In the case of theology, I agree. On matters of science, I disagree. And I would be right. The reason being that we can use science to back ourselves up.

So all in all it depends on what your beliefs are and how far they go. Strictly scientifically speaking I cannot tell you that your belief in a God is wrong. I CAN tell you that a belief in Adam and Eve (if you happened to have such) is wrong. Unless of course Adam and Eve turn out to be not the progenitors of the human race but merely part of an already present population.
You're a cool cat.

What magic? there is no magic as yet ever shown to have happened.

are you refering to future magic that may or may not ever happen?

You're welcome. If you post here you will get it anyway. Such is the nature of this thread.
A science lesson? Nah. I'm good. Does such a testable hypothesis even exist for God? Which is purely my point. That the scientific method can neither prove or disprove the existence of God. With that being said, I see no point in debating science as it relates to God himself. Thou art a masterful quoter, though. Worthy of an award.

Ah, his divinity mythical, perhaps. But not all Buddhists worship Buddha as divine. He is just a teacher. Enlightenment on the other hand is merely a state of mind.

You are entitled to your belief just like the rest of us. However having your own doesn't make that of others incorrect. Especially when you can't use the scientific method to disprove it.
I haven't mentioned any beliefs on my part. And I keep telling you that I don't have to disprove non-scientific concepts.

Perhaps. However the specifics that's relevant to this thread is the constant attack on public school education by fundamentalist creationists wishing to illegally insert religious apologetics. That is something us mean old evo's have an issue with.

That seems to frustrate some of the fundies around here though.
Believing in God does not make me a fundie. Never once have I thumped my Bible. I hardly find that statement irrelevant when it is at the core of the differing opinions. It's the opinions on the matter that I see no point in arguing over.

Actually we can, or at least minimize it, with education.

<quoted text>Absolute, non-sequiter.

why would an 'enlightened' person believe something there is no evidence at all for? seems rather unenlighted, by definition, really.

don't worry, i don't expect a serious answer from you. you seem to have hit your limit of discussion. you should just put it on a taped loop...

or you could surprise me...
Aren't you a funny one? The only thing I keep repeating is that the scientific method cannot be used to prove or disprove the existence of God. That's just fact. The differing opinions on said fact do not make it any more or less factual. We each see the world through our own eyes. However facts are absolute. My only problem, then, is when people misrepresent their own opinion for absolute truth. Thereby condemning any and everyone whose opinions are contrary to their own. That's not enlightenment at all. That's something altogether different.

your Bible? i thought you weren't a part of any organized religion..

hmmm...

sounds just like all the others i mentioned previously who claim to be independent, but really aren't.

any other of your claims that are going to turn out to be false also?

Lol Now you are an expert on the u.s. public school system? Apologies. I wasn't aware. While it is true that many well educated people have been a part of the system, that doesn't make the system itself any more or less corrupt. The fact that they made it at all reflects more upon the individual rather than the system itself. If you believe that the system is not flawed, then you obviously haven't seen, read, heard the news lately. Living under a rock are we, troglodyte?
