You are lying. You would not accept that evolution.
You are also lying about "atheism". The root is "atheos" - no god.
no god + ism = belief that there is no god.
I would accept the evolution of the word Christian as you've outlined. The reason being is it would completely alter the meaning as it is now. That often happens with words

"Christian" would no longer represent what it does..

It means "not theist", or, "without theism".

<quoted text>
When Virginia joined the Union, they were assured they would be able to succeed if they chose.
The ratification documents of Virginia, New York and Rhode Island explicitly said that they held the right to resume powers delegated, should the federal government become abusive of those powers.
At the 1787 Constitutional Convention a proposal was made to allow the federal government to suppress a seceding state. James Madison, the acknowledged father of our Constitution, rejected it, saying:“A Union of the States containing such an ingredient seemed to provide for its own destruction. The use of force against a State would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.”
So which is the traitor - the ones who broke the agreement, or the ones who upheld it?
Succeed? They seem pretty successful.

Please explain with your multitude of faux pas why anyone should consider your nonsense an authority on anything.

I am pretty sure, Let there be light goes right along with Nobel prize physics winner Steven Weinberg's (an atheist professor) disruption of the universe being brought forth in an intense explosion in three minutes where 98% of the matter was produced...Yep, then and we had a universe. Something caused a mass explosion with an intense flash of light that created a universe. Hmm... A biblical author in Gen 1:3 actually said.. "let there be light" and he got it right over 5000 years ago and an atheist scientist basically copied what he said, but took God out...

That's fine with me. But if you use those words in the common way, your comment is flawed. If you were to have said in advance that when you say "a gold emu" you mean "damaged my ability to think clearly," then your second sentence is correct.

Of course you do not know what I mean; that would require comprehension skills. I am sorry, I will reword this in more elementary terms. Let’s start on a 1st grade level.
Can you prove what you stated? You stated something wrong. Can you tell the truth? The truth can be told.
