<quoted text>Wow- you like making baseless assumptions, don't you?
1. What makes you assume ANYONE here spends countless hours in search of the hole that the hominid didn't jump out of?
2. What makes you assume that love, respect and forgiveness are principles only of the bible or that the bible is needed to teach love, respect, forgiveness.....things like that?
The bible is not the authority on love, respect or forgiveness and all the more given how much violence, hatred, war and killing is in the pages of the "good" book.
3. Not know what we're missing? How is that? Because we prefer to accept REALITY rather than to believe in fairy tales and fairy tales with no explanation and no logic?
So you're "saddened" because BILLIONS of people in this world do not believe in your god or your bible?
Do you spend "countless hours" feeling sorry for those BILLIONS of people?
And- still waiting for that explanation of how the dust=man and rib=woman could have happened.
I really don't expect a response from you since such nonsense can NOT be explained and must be taken on FAITH and sorry- but there is no EVIDENCE of either occurrence and no LOGICAL reason to believe what is utter bilge.
1. Lol...lets see...all the time, money, and research spent on evolution...that'd be a starting point. just my opinion though...I won't state that as fact. Y'all may be on to something.
2. I didn't assume, nor did I state that love, respect and forgiveness are principles only of the bible. I also did not say the bible was the authority on those. I stated that I teach those principles from the bible and see no harm in it. You are making the assumptions...I didn't. As for all the war, hatred, killing, etc...yes, it's there too. Had the writers left out the truth, the "good book" would serve no purpose here. Yet, it has and continues to do so.
3. You don't know what you're missing...and yes...I am saddened that billions don't believe.
4. I have no earthly clue how dust man and rib woman occurred. I have never pretended or claimed to know either. I believe based on faith...kinda the same faith you have in that Unknown, unseen common ancestor we have.

"Utter bilge"...well...that's an interesting way to put it.

I applaude you for your dedication in the medical field, i have a sister who started out at the bottom of the ladder in a nursing home been there over 20 years,and now she has been a RN for over 10 years and still works there. Although somewhat of a different fiels but still.
Thank you! I applaud her. Nurses in a nursing home have a very difficult job and rarely get the praise they deserve!

<quoted text>Okay- let's try this: If you believe that the first man was created from dust, just exactly how did THAT happen?
And if you believe the first woman was created from a rib of the first man, exactly how did THAT happen?
Bible thumpers not only like to shove their beliefs down the throats of others, they do so with thinking THEY have it all figured out and that anyone who thinks differently is the "anti-Christ".
So do tell, TSI- just HOW did your god go about creating a man from DUST and then creating a woman from a RIB of the first man?
This ought to be good......

Well, since nothing in the scientific field, including the theory of evolution, suggest that it was by chance, meh. But circumstance is the very essence of why humanity is what it is today.
Perhaps we should agree to disagree on this one. I promise, I'll never budge. I will never accept that animals, the human body, even bacteria are the result of pure circumstance. Far too complex, far too amazing. Not once, in all the studies ever done has there been an instance where a living cell, much less a complex living cell, was produced from nothing, just by circumstance. if it had happened just once, I might be inclined to believe it. but it hasn't...ever.

Yeah like when to sacrifice your son and throw babies off the walls against the rocks and kill everyone in the city.

<quoted text>There is NO evidence to back up the man=dust or rib=woman nonsense. That IS what we were discussing, wasn't it- the origin of human life?
Don't lecture me as to what is in the bible and don't talk down to me either.
I've READ the bible in its entirety. Some nice STORIES, some nice fairy tales, some nice parables.
Some really NOT nice stuff as well which shows the bible god to be angry, wrathful, jealous, vindictive, vengeful, mean and petty.
And gee- LOTS of fairy tales are amazing and do allow the imagination to take off on flights of fancy which is nice if one accepts that that is what fairy tales are- tales spun about that which is impossible.
So- I guess you're stumped, huh? I say that since you haven't explained just HOW dust could be turned into a man and just HOW a rib could be turned into a woman.
Yeah- I know- "magic" or "don't question god" or "just because" or any other NON-answers which I do understand since the bible is totally devoid of any logic- just like every other fairy tale.
Uhm..actually, no. We were discussing where the apes came from, but you didn't have an answer so you turned it around on me. But, according to you, you've read the bible, so there really should be no question about what I believe. I didn't lecture or talk down on you either. I was simply describing the beauty of the bible. I'm sorry if you perceived that as such. I will say this, if we could descend from an ape, why couldn't we descend from the dust or dirt? Various hydrocarbons associated with life are found in the soil. It's a valid question. As for how God did it, I haven't a clue nor have I ever suggested as much.

1. Because it is.
2. Repeating what I said still makes your original post wrong.
3. Not a guess, it's what the evidence demonstrates.
1. That's a non-answer.

2. So is that.

3. There isn't any evidence that suggests all life came from one life.

Oh give me a break. Mythology USED to tell us that, just like science USED to tell us that the best way to cure a fever is to drain a little blood...

Don't give me any of that nonsense. You're implying that if you live your life trusting in science and nothing else you will be "happier and healthier". If that works for you great, but don't expect it to work great on everybody.

My mother-in-law died because of your precious science and it's precious medical "cures".

After all, if one is going to spend "countless hours" wondering how we came into existence, then one isn't spending their existence using their time to LIVE.
Besides that, it matters not so much HOW we got here or even WHY we are here; what matters MUCH more is what we do with our lives WHILE we are here.
hmm...I missed this pos...but I totally agree with this...

Um.....actually, yes. One of my first posts to you today was in response to you talking about humans evolving from apes in reference to evolution.

I then had to point out to you that evolutionists do not believe humans evolved from apes, but that is a common misconception of those who think the bible is fact- erroneously thinking that human evolution MUST mean humans evolved from apes when of course, that is not the case.

The beauty of the bible....okay- whatever.

Okay- you admit you don't know how your god did it- is that the same conclusion you think scientists and evolutionists come to regarding how the earth and life started?

Ummm.....their explanation is a bit more complicated than yours and their explanation has actual evidence and fact to back it up.

If you deduct the Catholics, you halfwit, as well as the other "fringe" groups, the Muslims outnumber you.

I know you're keeping track better than this. You're just being dishonest.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. There is a favorite quote of mine that was mentioned in a movie, that movie was The Notebook. James Garner who played Noah as an adult, was talking to the physician about his wife who has severe dementia. The doctor tried to explain to Noah, his wife will not regain her memory back by reading a story to her about their life of when they first met. It is impossible by scientific standards.
James Garner replies......." science can only do so much and then comes God."

Okay...let me clarify a few things first. I said, "Magic....really. So tell me, I get the whole...evolutionary bit...regarding our ancestral lineage. But do tell...please...how science suggest the world and all that inhabits it came to be. Oh wait...let's see...there's that whole Big Bang theory...hmmm...let's see...I do believe in this theory...life basically emerges from nothing. That's pretty cool, except we've never recorded another single event where life springs from nothing. Sounds magical to me."So, again, please, tell me....how exactly did we come into existence?" (see post #621677)

You answered, "By means of evolution. That's the short answer and the most direct."

Now, with that in the proper perspective, because it is quoted, viewable text...your answer states that we came into existence by way of evolution. My answer to that was,
"AH AH...don't run off. By means of evolution from what? The TOE tells us our ancestors were apes...where the crap did the apes come from? Dig deep in your scientific world of knowledge...I really wanna get to nitty gritty of all this."
We went through multiple other posts regarding the semantics of the TOE, but never once did you give me your answer as to where the apes came from or that common ancestor. Additionally, you completely avoided the the whole chromosome 2 fusion information, which in fact, does suggest we are the result of apes. Now...you say...

So please...enlighten me...what is their complicated explanation with actual evidence regarding how earth and life started? Geez...that's all I really wanted know in the first place.

However, I have sold most of my books, so I do tend to rely on the Internet these days....You have seriously misjudged me.
The controversy surrounding evolution is hardly the result of one little doubt. Billions of people doubt evolution. Surely, you aren't gonna blame this on one little doubt. there are hole and missing links...that's the bottom line and it's not my fault, so why lash out at me.
"Controversy"?
