I don't straw man (misrepresent) evolution.
I narrow it down to what they've claimed it to be.
When I say "a fish grew legs", I know they think that was a long, long time, not a *poof*.
The funny thing is, evolution is the world's biggest damn guess...
That is funny, and completely untrue.

Is that why you think it's funny?

I think it's funny because you think it's funny. I find the irony of it funny.

You DO misrepresent evolution. How could you avoid that, and still talk about it?

You responded almost exactly how I predicted.

I was in the middle of writing my prediction in a post to Hiding and decided to give you the benefit of the doubt.

It sounds to me like you're the one that doesn't understand what retirement is. It's from working.

A city worker with 25 years in Los Angeles would be dumb to not retire at age 55. That does not mean that he chooses to be productive, that is why I say that poor people and the uneducated retire.
What?

I don't work because I don't need to. You seem to be critical about that. Is that correct?

Where do you think you came from just zapped out of thin air I don't think so and I didn't come from no dag gone monkey either. Have you ever been in an accident and survived well if you did you would probably say it was the doctors that saved your life and the only reason they did was because God gave them the tools and knowledge to do that
Hi, and welcome to Topix. I see that this is your first post.

I'm Catcher.

I zapped out of thin air one day.

My brother, who is an only child, came from a dag gone monkey (from the Daggone region, in Central Africa).

And yes, I was in an accident and survived well, thanks to the doctors' god-given tools.

Again, welcome.

Oh, one thing. You need to work on your punctuation.

<quoted text>What? Do you comprehend the ridiculousness in posting that you "previously stated you would no longer post to me" and then doing it. So, when did you decide it was the case, the second you pushed "post comment" or the second after? THINK, boooots, it will prevent much laughter towards you.
You 'stated' that you are someone who I previously stated I would no longer post to. That is when I knew. I still don't know which person that is, but it is insignificant as you don't seem to have all your cylinders firing anyway.
I have continued to post to some of your posts today because I am finding it increasingly unbelievable that a person who claims to be so knowledgeable, as you seem to, can be so clueless. Then you go and quote a creationist link and that pretty well decides for sure that you are a crackpot. Are you not aware that a creationist site is not a reliable source of information on anything, other than if someone wants to know what is posted on a creationist site?

If non-Christians do not care what Jesus thinks about homosexual sin, murder, biblical marriage, etc. then why have gays burn and fire bomb over 150 churches since 2008, disrupted MLK's Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on Inauguration day, and have gotten FBI records for disrupting the DNC and RNC convention?
I have no idea if any of that happened, but it would be irrelevant to the point I made whether it did or not.

I don't mind your personal faith - in your home, private business and churches. Feel free to live however you like, and I'll do the same.

Yes it is true , but she claims the tissue contains amino acids and traces of DNA. This come as much to the surprise to all
but if it does show one thing clearly. And that is that the fossilization process is not fully understood as once thought.
I'm not sure if the DNA can be sequenced , it maybe to fragmented.
But it is there and they may yet find a way to do it.

<quoted text>So, YOU, do not know and strangely, it is you who lives your life as to not know any gays. You are so quit to call people homophobes, when you are like the racist who claims that he saw a black in a market once so he is not racist. I have gay friends and have kept them for years, and I have kept my views as well. I also have friends who are illegal aliens, and I oppose them being here illegally. If the government deported them, I would say, you got caught I will visit you when I can.
One of may favorite high school teachers was gay. Our church secretary and local town pharmacist was also gay. Our well loved music store operator was a lesbian, and her mother, a single mother for many years as her husband died quite young from one of the diseases of 70 or so years ago, was my music teacher for a while when I was in elementary school. Her girlfriend was in our church choir.

The best friends of my parents had a gay son who was a day younger than my second sister, and we saw them often as children. The above mentioned are all dead now, most due to age related illnesses. The friend who was my sister's age died of cancer in his mid to late 50s.

I just don't happen to be acquainted with any gays at this point in time, at least none that I have any contact with.

Don't make me older than I am. When did I get to be 67? Actually in just over 2 months I will be 66, so you are out only a year and some. I am retired.

From my understanding no DNA was found, it is still too fragile, though her discovery was still quite amazing.

By the way, why are we even discussing evolution here? The name of the thread is "Prove there is a god". Evolution does not prove the nonexistence of god, though you would think so by the way that creatards react.
The title is an obvious challenge to believers in god that they need to supply some sort of evidence that supports the existence of god. I have not seen any evidence supporting the existence of god yet.
Well you have seen the same as we all have because no evidence has been presented here yet. We have though had a lot of nonsense thrown at us as evidence. The problem is those acting on behalf of the believing community are a poor sample, mostly uneducated, and extremely naive people, who make statements that most educated people would know won't fly in a discussion of this nature, and/or they spend their time attacking the posters rather than providing any evidence.

We also have some who have presented the same non-evidence over 1000 times (just one person). These people seem to not understand that a correct refutation of a point means it won't work next time, or the 1000th time.

Some of the believers here are so hate-filled and/or bigoted that they can't get around that to use their brains.

No, but two gorgeous nurses had halos over their heads.

And they had been endowed by their creator with two incredible assets.

I woke up with a rise, as you may imagine.
