Two things can be taken away from your statement.
1. You believe in evolution
2. You don't know anything about what you believe in.
According to the theory of evolution the universe is around 14 billion years old with the earth being around 4 billion.
You're only off by a minimum of 986 billion years and since you said trillions with an 2 in reality it puts you off by a minimum of 1.986 trillion years.
Perhaps you should brush up on what you believe and get your facts straight before asking others questions on the subject.
Kirk
You making a common error oft perpetuated by those ignorant of the sciences. You are mixing cosmology and the theory of biological evolution and calling them one thing. They are not.

Biological evolution as proposed by Darwin states common decent with change over time for living things. This is driven by natural selection. Biological evolution does not deal with directly the origins of life nor the age of the Earth or the cosmos.

Finally, this is not a belief system, but acceptance based on facts.

You should brush up on the erroneous information that you believe to be true when it is in fact not, before you start casting dispersions on others. For that matter, you might want to consider the validity of the assumptions you are making before you start firing off preachy posts.

Hey Kirk, thanks for your response. You're correction on "trillions" is duly noted. I knew better, I'm not sure how I came up with that: maybe I've been hearing national debt numbers too much.
Yes, I believe evolution ..... but that doesn't preclude the possibility of a Creator.
You point out another important piece of this puzzle that is often overlooked or disregarded. Biological evolution does not address the existence of a Creator. It neither supports nor refutes God or any god.

I have one question for everyone that still posts here. Say what you have to gain or what you gain by coming here everyday. Ignore this if you want but if you can not post a sensible answer or you ignore it then it just shows that you are an idiot with no life!!!!!
Why does it bother you so much that people still post on this thread. This sounds like your problem not theirs even though you are trying desperately to make your problem the fault of others.

For instance, I don't care that you are still posting here. It is your right to and I accept that. In fact, I fully support that right.

You sound like you are looking for attention, but that is just my opinion. Still I can't help coming to that concludsion because you are posting here, making a challenge and trying to pass blame for your actions on to others.

Man you guys are way beyond idiots. You have 2 maybe 3 guys that come here posting with 2-4 names a piece hoping to draw someone into their @ss trap here so they can bitchhh and gripe with someone besides each other. Unless someone new comes in they just bitchhh and grip with each other (the 2-3) or bitchhh and gripe with their selves trying to draw more flies into the trap so they will having something to do. There are 4-6 names here EVERYDAY but only two people control those names. LMAO You all area big fuking joke!
And yet here you are posting on this thread yourself. That seems to rather stupid in and of itself. Yet you go on to make claims you could not possibly have the evidence to support. How do you know how many people are posting on this thread in total? Again, you are another person that seems deeply troubled how others exercise their Constitutional rights. Why is that?

From reading on here, I saw a post referring to you actually following another poster onto an obscure thread in another forum. With that in mind it seems like you are transferring your own faults and weaknesses onto others. Perhaps it is you that wants to post here and garner some measure of attention for yourself. Perhaps you are the joke. It isn't for me to say, but the evidence does not support your having a full life, much education or the ability to think critically. Or even honestly for that matter.

You have a dirty mind, but I must admit that I laughed despite myself. Do you think this XxX understands what karyotype refers to or that you are making fun of him?

Despite what many say on here, it is clear there is a difference in the education and intelligence between posters on here. Maybe no difference though in the ability to turn everything into a dirty joke, but some are better executed than others.

What does that tell us about YOU?
Having read many posts you have made and many posts made against you, I have come to the conclusion that you are educated and intelligent even if I do not find myself in agreement with everything you post.

From reading over the last several days worth of posts, the posters on this thread can be loosely placed in two camps. THere seems to be educatinal and intellectual differences in these two camps that are markedly displayed, but not necessarily consciously displayed, by the posters in those camps. Based on my reading, I wouold say that you are one of the biggest targest of the opposing camp because you seem to be one of the most prolific of the more intellectually and factually guided posters on here. What I find interesting is that despite the anonymity of this site, many in the more visceral camp seem to take the comments made here personally. It is a strange thing that people that do not actaully know each other seem to have such an unlikely investment in what others post on here. Would you consider that to be fair and accurate?

If you look further at patterns, there seems to be a camp that spends some time on here ridiculing others for spending time on here. The overlap of this camp with the visceral, less cerebral camp is almost complete as near as I can determine. What do you think of this observation?

I have addressed you specifically on these thoughts because I do not think that my observations would be understood or accepted by those for whom these observations best describe.

Excuse me but people have worked all their lives and contributed to SS so it's not like they are sitting at home receiving free money. They worked for it and most didn't have any choice but have it taken out of their paychecks. If the government had taken of SS, we wouldn't be in such a mess. One problem is the illegal aliens and the lazy people that won't work getting free money!
Maybe there is not enough hornblowers on the people receiving benefits illegally. The government has no idea how much true waste there is in benefits being received because they don't have the manpower to investigate all the cases. Most people stand by and don't want to get involved.

I see, my friend. You say that our souls live forever. You just admitted that our souls are not physical. Presumably they are spirits. So how can Hell's fire hurt a spirit? That is another huge hole in your "eternal punishment" mythology.

Of course, he did not get up and "attend to business." He said that he "didn't want to upset the children."

There were several thousand people in NYC who were being "upset," while Bush frittered away 11 minutes of precious time in which he could have acted "presidential" and assumed the position of "Commander in Chief."

Well, thank you for your comments. As the population goes, I consider myself to be educated and intelligent. However, I am not "broadly" educated - meaning there are hundreds of topics which I do not know, or understand. My background is in engineering, not the social sciences, nor liberal arts, nor politics, nor government.

I would be disappointed in you if you DID agree with me entirely. Sometimes, even I do not agree with myself. The world is highly nuanced, with many "shades of gray." No one knows everything.

This is somewhat of a joke, but the more education I got, the more I discovered that I did NOT know. Thus, the more I studied, the dumber I got! So -- I quit taking classes, and now feel very much smarter!_8-)

(To restate: Only the closed-minded know everything.)

Certainly everyone has an "investment" in what we believe and say, and some often are upset when others disagree with them. As my English teacher often said, "What you students say about Shakespeare tells me more about you, than it tells me about Shakespeare."

I do admit to acting somewhat like a "lightning rod" to elicit interesting and contrary responses. This is merely a hobby, and hopefully will slow down the atrophy of my brain.

You are correct. There is a subset of people who post here, saying that no one should post here -- a clear contradiction in itself.

I will also admit to "giving no quarter" to my antagonists. Whatever I must write to "win," I will do. I will not "help" them by being easy on them.

I will state that, when a person comes onto this thread and attempts to engage in a meaningful discussion, I will not attack him, provided I believe that the person is sincere in his beliefs. As a volunteer "crisis counselor," I rode in a police cruiser (weekends) for a few years with a cop who was a "mirror." If he was approached in a belligerent manner, he was belligerent; if he was approached politely, he reflected that same politeness.

I enjoy posting on this thread, and am amazed that the discussion has continued so long, and with such little regard for the original "subject."

(I must note that if I took any criticisms of me personally, I would have been gone two years ago.)

SIGN GRASSFIRE'S "I SUPPORT THE SECOND AMENDMENT" PETITION!
As promised President Obama and the liberal statists are taking swift action to ban guns and restrict the constitutional rights of Americans. Senate Democrats have now unveiled their plan to expand the definition of prohibited "assault" weapons and reduce the legal limit for magazine capacity to ten rounds. One thing is certain, our Second Amendment gun rights are squarely in Obama's crosshairs - and sweeping changes and restrictions are now before Congress.
