I never thought I'd say this and it should be taken with a grain of salt(a boulder...). That's the more sensible half.
After all, even the Jewish people for the most part see it as the historical mythology of their culture.
Judaism says that the Torah is:

Parable
Poetry
Allegory
Tradition

Never HIstory. Science or Fact.

<quoted text>I guess you are as dismissive of people as well. its too bad, you could learn a lot about life in general from him. It is not a coicidence so many people have asked you how old you are. I realize some of it is not your fault but at the same time your age doesnt excuse everything either.Some people go thru their entire lives ignorant. I would guess one of their most common traits is to become incapable of learning from someone because they said something you didnt like one time. I know you dont understand but enough mistakes down the road and life will make it clearer the mistakes you are making. I have learned things that helped me even from people I greatly disliked.
I could learn a lot from a guy making comments that aren't relevant to anything? Well obviously that's how you "learn" things. I mean, look at the stupid things that come from your mind.

<quoted text> Don't be angry, and especially since it was your typo that initiated this conversation. I think that typo was due to your subconscious(and reasoned) mind taking control for a moment.
BTW, once the insult or in this instance, the Ad Hominem is thrown(you attached those insults to "ID", too), it's a sure sign you really have nothing to present as an argument or rebuttal, so you insult as a way to compensate due to the absence of a supportable or tenable position.
So, after the erroneous and ill informed claims you made above consisting of the baseless claim of:
<quoted text>
Lets see what you have to offer.
<quoted text> You mean grownups with mythical deity beliefs and a need to find something to support that deity belief, which lacks any proof whatsoever.
"Intelligent Design" is not a scientific theory. Intelligent design is a futile exercise in an attempt to portray the Universe as a place intended solely for the benefit of humanity. It presumes to explain absolutely everything as proof of a "higher order" or intelligent tinkerer having a hand in the existence or creation of everything.
Until it comes to the necessary and logical conclusion concerning the proposed "designer", in that if everything in the Universe has a purposeful and created design, then what designed the creator?
The position of "Intelligent Design" amounts to:
"The Universe, and life couldn't have happened without an intelligent designer, but it's different for my deity and my deity didn't require a infinitely more complex designer to design it because... cause... um... because he's my DEITY!, yeah that's why! Nothing is impossible for my deity!"
You don't have a competent grasp of cosmological theory or evolutionary theory, and then rant against the aspects you don't understand, making statements similar to:
<ID proponent>"How did everything come from nothing!?"
Be consistent and apply those reasons to your deity. However, you never want to take it that far.

Ad Hominem; The refuge of the weak in argument and substance, often used when they really have little thought to offer.
Thanks for the opportunity to address "Intelligent Design".
Well done, Christian.
?? you must write this to someone else. I mean, I hope you really did not think I going to read all of these websites you link..LOL.

You really think it matter to me what a bunch of religious zealots saying about their religion atheism on some website dedicated to atheism?

When I say ID, I mean GOD. What you think ID is, or not, matters not. To be an atheist, is to be Stupid. You think that is ad hominem, I think it's the reality of the atheist, abysmal stupidity. And science, backs it up.

So I not backing ID as science. I don't need to. Actually science is on it's own destroying atheism. Everything came from GOD, not nothing.

You on the other hand must believe everything including the air, came from nothing. LOL. Abysmal stupidity-you, the atheist.

<quoted text>Like I figured, your bias and personal limitations would hinder you. Its ignorant to dismiss most things in their entirety. There are some beautiful words about love in those verses that anybody regardless of their beliefs should be able to take something positive from. You come across as very young and the immaturity that goes with that. Hopefully you get wiser with years or you will continue to miss opportunities for knowledge, perspective, and growth. That only hurts you
Good evening Skom, bullseye post Btw.

Why an entity ?

Is electricity an entity ? Gravity ? love ? hate ? light? life ? death ?

Which would be completely unrelated to the Yahweh!, since he has no balls and no concept of a sphere apparently, and frowns upon sex for fun in most instances unless procreation is involved.
Careful, that Counter_Strike fellow will condemn you to his dreaded lake of fire.

I personally dont care if people within your subset choose to redefine the word.

What?

Really?

Wow.

So you think religion has a monopoly on spirituality?

Experiencing God Day By Day:
Fix Your Eyes on God
And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, "Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?" (Numbers 20:10)
*
It is easy to see why Moses became frustrated with the Hebrew people. They were so hard-hearted and weak in their faith that Moses lost his patience and became angry with them. Yet every time Moses shifted his focus away from God, it cost him. When he sought to help his people by taking matters into his own hands, he spent the next forty years herding sheep in the wilderness_(Exod. 2:11Ė15). This time his impetuous behavior cost him the opportunity to enter the Promised Land (Num. 20:12). In his frustration at the peoplesí irreverence, Moses committed the very same sin, blatantly disobeying Godís instructions. How did this happen? Moses allowed his attention to shift to the behavior of others rather than focusing on the activity of God.
*
This could happen to you as well. God has put people around you who need your ministry to them. You will never be able to properly help them, however, unless your primary focus is on God. If you concentrate on people, their weaknesses, their disobedience, their lack of faith, and their stubbornness will quickly frustrate you. You may, like Moses, commit the very sins you are condemning. If, however, your eyes are fixed on holy God, you will become more like Himógracious, forgiving, long-suffering, and righteous. When a friendís behavior disappoints you, go immediately to the Lord. Seek to discern what God is wanting to do in your friendís life rather than concentrating on your friendís sin. Then you will have the strength, wisdom, and patience you need to help your friend in the way God desires.
