You're not cherry picking, just "borrowing a phrase".

WTF??
BTW, STILL waiting for evidence of THAT god or ANY god which MIGHT exist for that matter......since you can't provide any evidence, admit that your god exists is just your opinion.
You don't think we evolved from dirt? Well, that is how the first human came to be in the bible.....
I still wanna see ONE observed phenomenon that used to have a scientific explanation, and now has a religious/superstitious one.

My personal opinion is that I do not care if there is a god watching over me and caring for my daily health and well being daily (giving me medicine for my health). I really do not care. Why? I care for myself. I need no outside help.

Number 1; In in my years on this rolling dirt ball, I have never seen one instance of a miracle. If you want to call the stars above, a miracle, that's up to you. Number 2; I have never heard, seen, a prayer for the regrowth of an amputated limb take place. I have witnessed many hundreds of prayers for forgiveness (forgiveness for what?, sinning as Adam and Eve?) and not a one has resulted in anything. Witness mother theresa. All she ever did in India, was to "bless" the dying. Show me where she raised the dead and relieved pain and suffering. Does NOT exist.

The bible states that your god created the first man from dust and the first woman from a rib of the first man with all future humanity stemming from those 2 magically made individuals.

Neither action in any way fits the definition of evolution.

Just one thing I want you to remember, what you said here today. I hope with all my being one day before you die I hope you take Jesus Christ as your lord and savior.

Yes it does, you've never heard of the "common ancestor" guess?
"Life on Earth evolved from a universal common ancestor approximately 3.8 billion years ago."
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution
<quoted text>
I'm not comparing the two. "All life can from one life" is NOT EQUAL to "how did life begin".
You are spinning the two together in an attempt to throw the discussion off. It ain't workin.
<quoted text>
Se above. Stop assuming so damn much.
Well, therein lies the rub. Common ancestor does not make your claim that all life came from one life. That is where your equivocation fallacy falters. You wrote, "Show me the "FACTS" that all life came from one life, as ToE suggests." You are reading a Wikipedia simplification of the concept and it does not mean what you think it means.

"Modern organisms are the genetic descendants of one ancient, original species (broadly defined as a communal population of organisms exchanging genetic material)". So, it is not in any way all life from one life. Please garner a basic understanding before yo pontificate foolishly and please stop reading Wkikpedia. It will rot your brain.

So, yes, where did life begin is an important piece. It is you who is equivocating the two with your Wikisimplification.

Perhaps you can read and learn from an in-depth explanation as opposed to such a simplified one.

Mother Teresa was actually a sadist. She believed people should suffer for her imaginary friend. She consorted with Contras, Strongmen, and criminals and con men. Oh yeah, she was a Christian. Never mind. Same thing.

The Most Honorable Reverend Pat Robertson (R-Conartiststan) explained Hurricane Katrina was because of homosexuals (all that sucking?). Ironically, it missed the French Quarter, the gayest of the gay part of New Orleans. I propose we mobilize a National Gay Shield to travel to different parts of the country that are about to be the victim of Yeahnoway's wrath. That crazy old coot has some crappy aim and gays are like kryptonite to boot. Plus, when they leave, everything will be cleaned, painted, and landscaped.

Why? Why would you need a lord or a master? Why do you have a master/slave relationship with an imaginary being that never manifests in reality? What benefit do you receive from such a worldview? How does it improve your quality of life? How can you live in abject fear of a culturally-conditioned belief system? Why don't you say the same about Allah? What kind of supernatural omnipotent would need the worship of mere mortals? It's ridiculous.

So, they're cherry picking when they have no "faith" that you are more intelligent than you present yourself here and I am assuming when I claim that you are. Your door doesn't just swing both ways, it's a regular trisexual.

Because the god of the Bible does not do it that way. It's in the book! Could "a god" possibly do it that way. sure, why not, but, when you make a specific god claim and the only evidence for that god and what it has accomplished are in a book, that book is what it is, and in that book, there is no evolution. How many of your theist friends that "dispute" evolution based on their understanding of the Bible do you ask to prove their assertions. I'll just score it a zero now until you can come up with some evidence that you have.
