We made torture moral enough so that those responsible remain unbpunished.
We worked with a sliding scale.
If you would like to punish the men and women who defend this country against hostiles . The very same people who have witnessed the beheading of their comrades by such said forces and decided by themselves the discretion to use and to employ
questionably extreme methods to obtain information , then you are welcome. But they never made the definitions change , nor will their punishment change the tactics of Americas enemies.

The military were not involved much in torture. But I was thinking of those that ordered it and were responsible at a higher level for it.

Well, they were found, mate.

Long story short, one day one guy accidentaly broke a dinosaur bone, and found some bits of soft tissue. Checked it. DNA. It was protected by the fossilisation process.

I don't know about any thesis written on this (sadly, I do not keep up to date). This was 5-7 years ago, so there may have been a few articles, research papers and dissertations written on it. Pretty cool stuff, though

You'll agree that your alive...right

You'll agree that you have intellegence...right

And you'll agree that all this was a result of 'evolution'...right

We'll if man could evolve into this...

Is it not possible that 'God' or a 'creator' could not also have evolved?

yes no...?

They never get past the uncaused causer of all causes being a fallacious concept that breaks the rule of it's premise to begin with.

Well follow you same frame of thought with man...

According to your 'evolution theory'...did we exist first as we are today?

Yes no...

You can't have it both ways...

So man can evolve out of 'nothing'...but a majestic God or creator can't or couldn't have done the same?

Who's to say 'God' or a higher being, simply didn't 'evolve' before we did, and then created us?

The same way (following evolutions logic) the same we we 'evolved' and then created computors and robots and cars...

Why do some people suddenly become so close minded when it comes to the idea of divine or spirit world life?

The theories of evolution only work in a censored classroom. They are in fact state brainwashing since the time of the American & French revolutions e.g. world revolution. You see before this time was the holy roman empire.
The NWO ATHEIST brainwashing began with the French Revolution.

Critics will point out that even with the supposed bazzilions of years evolution is impossible, and has never been observed in even the shortest of generation bacteria we have observed for over 100 years.
Yet there have been no bazzillions of fantastic years often parroted as fact.

Being a self-proclaimed athiest your opinion is hardly unbiased. I tend to lean more towards evolution, but here's something to ponder. Where did that first spark of life come from? that very first single, living cell that in millions/billions of years would evolve into all the living creatures on earth, huh? You got an answer for that?
it's cool that you're leaning the right way so why don't you extend that thought process just a touch and consider this.......... evolution makes more sense than the Bible about animals being created perfect in one magic moment, so maybe science will make more sense of other things like creation, maybe Adam and Eve and the apple n snake stuff isn't that accurate?
Hey you know what come to think of it, maybe religion is one big fantasy?

You say that you're atheist, which for you just means rejection of theism - a belief in god.
So what do you have in place of a belief in god, you must have some other belief, so is atheism a belief?
Or is atheism just a big hole where belief should be?
I'm not a creationist, I don't think the Bible is infallible but I stop short of calling myself atheist. I don't even think agnostic covers it. Maybe you can explain what you believe, I just think I don't have enough evidence to form a belief yet.

Atheism is lack of belief; The “big hole” is usually crammed with more important stuff than a bronze age god myth, stuff like humanity and equality, caring and charity, human morality that is applied to all life as opposed to religious morality that is applied to those of the same sect. Just every day stuff, but important stuff for those who take the responsibility for living upon themselves rather then blaming gods.
