Are you serious? You are incapable of loving someone if anything they do you think is wrong? I am sorry you are that narrow-minded and hypocritical. Jesus would have told you otherwise
Ressurectionologist, you're a pillow biter?

Can you provide one single reason other than you believe it to be the case that would demonstrate there is a reason to believe evolution is ongoing?
It takes millions of years for a single change. You can't follow it sequentially. At least we don't have the information at this point too. You have no way of predicting what the next change will be in millions of years or from what I can see, any reason to say it is a certainty there will be one. What is it you see that allows you to confidently say humans will continue to evolve or what information are you basing that on?
Perhaps I am not understanding but it seems to me you simply believe that to be the case but there is no possible way that I can see that anyone can know something like that.
And the consensus was that wasssuup was the most idiotic poster in the room. Congratulations, Ressurrectionologist. In the immortal words of Tranny Town Clown, "Your dumb."

Hey "Larry"
What a surprise to see you within a day of me posting somewhere else!
Any reason other than the obvious dishonest one that you left out the examples I gave for why I said what I did which would clearly show why I said what I did?
Although wow do you and Catcher have some things in common. Perhaps you two can start some sort of wounded "male" pride stalking team and just keep responding to my posts together? What has it been for you? At least over a year right?
Man, it is hard to believe someone with your sensibilities and priorities is running a failing business

That isn't even close to what I am saying. I am not saying the Bible was misinterpreted therefore homosexuality is not really a sin. There are some who feel the word pornea originally was about gay prostitutes and not homosexuality in general but it is clear in the OT, which Jesus would have believed, that homosexuality was a sin. It was still considered a sin in the NT.
What is it you still aren't getting? Just because something is a sin doesn't mean you can be bigoted towards someone or hate them or discriminate against them unless every sinner is prepared to get the same treatment for their own sins. And since they don't it is hypocritical judging, it is in violation of the second greatest commandment to love thy neighbor and it is not justified by the Bible at all
So no I Was not trying to say the Bible was misinterpreted. Again, I don't know how I could have answered you any clearer for you to come up with that
Mmmmm, penis. Am I right, Ressurrectionologist?

I know enough to know you are contradicting yourself.
I said "You have no way of predicting what the next change will be in millions of years or from what I can see, any reason to say it is a certainty there will be one".
And you said "Of course I can't. Who can see the environment 1 million years from now?"
I said you can't even say with any certainly there will be any more changes and you agreed yet you maintain evolution is ongoing. That is a contradiction.
You have yet to provide a single piece of information to show why you believe evolution is ongoing
I know enough to know that
Yet, you don't know enough to know how stupid you look. Go figure.

How can it be any more specific than what proof is there that these changes are not simply adaptation compared to the claim that they are really part of a larger ongoing evolution?
I think I am beginning to see the problem and that is you have no basis for claiming evolution is ongoing. It is absurd to think anyone else could think they could prove something like that. Of course you can't know if evolution, something that takes millions of years per change and something you can't follow sequentially, is ongoing. There is no possible way that I have seen yet you can know that we haven't stopped evolving, if that is what even happened.
What do you base your position on that evolution is ongoing? How can you know that? How can know some things don't undergo 1 change or a dozen changes and stop? You are making up your own facts and then calling other people uninformed. While it is true i don't know a lot about this, I know when I am not getting an answer
OMFG you can't really be this stupid, can you? What college did you go to, Technical Cable Institute? "Yesterday I was watching cable. Today, I's installing it." Ugh.

I have no problem believing in God. However, organized religion has always and will always be a scam designed to do at least 2 things.
1.)Control your mind, and prevent you from thinking for yourself and
2.)Take your money so they can become more powerful and live better.

You do not read...it has nothing to do with Christianity in itself...it is however how I see you display it.
Your Bible speaks of giving up things of the flesh...sometimes those things happen to be what others do.
Colossians 3:5 says it fairly well...
So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don't be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
<quoted text>
Believe me...I have no desire to be your boss...or anything else to you.
However...as long as you continue to come here and use scripture to beat someone over the head...then you will continue to receive an opinion on how that scripture was intended.
If you can't take the heat Wasup...maybe you should stick to prison ministry...those that are looking for an hour or two out of their cells instead of people that can read and study for themselves.
I was sincere in my previous post to you as I am this one...yet you still can not address what was written to you.
if you like how good christianity is, why aren't you christian?
c'mon....show us all how it's really supposed to look instead of just being a hypocrite & criticizing others.

i.e., PUT UP OR SHUT THE HAAAEL UP!!!

I didn't vote for Obama, personally I don't like him, he's better than that Romney douche but meh.
I hate environuts, they're idiots who jump on bandwagons, not any different than christians, act first, think afterward, then dump all the consequences on the smaller populace since they can't fight back.
So, care to make anymore baseless assertions? I'm a conservative, lacking the god delusion, it's sad that I have to actually add that second part because morons like you took over the label and twisted into ... well, something really stupid. Obama is no worse than Bush was, and actually probably better than Romney would have been, however you think that the president actually makes the decisions, you think the president has real power, no wonder you can't vote well, you don't even know how our government works.
"you don't even know how our government works"

i know that you didn't vote, or at least not for a candidate who had a chance. therefore you hve no room to talk about politics IMO, and no room to complain

Condemn...
verb (used with object)
1. to express an unfavorable or adverse judgment on; indicate strong disapproval of; censure.
2. to pronounce to be guilty; sentence to punishment: to condemn a murderer to life imprisonment.
Or...a non-believer to hell...
What part of you telling those who don't believe as you do that they are going to some hell-place is NOT condemning them?
well i guess if all y'all didn't judge & condemn, it wouldn't be measured back to you accordingly. i can't change the spiritual/moral laws that are naturally in place.....

You have a severe problem where women are concerned. I would suggest that in part your religion is to blame for that and in part it is due to something that happened to you as a child.
"...when people show you how you are not following..."

okay, sure - then don't go there & i won't say what i really think of you!

LOL, I am not the failed businessman who has spent over a year following me around to argue on an Internt chat-room. I think literally one single post in over a year did I write you first. other than that you just follow and follow and follow.
My brother runs his own business and made well over 6 figures last year and I know he would look at me like i was crazy if I asked him if he had the time to do what you do and play on the internet and engage in year long internet grudges. But he runs a successful business.
It is ok that you have all this free time because your business is doing terrible. Some people just aren't gifted with the know-how to run their own business. I am glad I don't have to as I earn a decent living and will be going to work in a few hours. Enjoy your soap operas and bon-bons and stalking people on Topix. Apparently you have the time!
Seriously skombo, you should lay off the drugs before you get sent back to prison for parole violations..........

I'll talk to you later when you get to work and post from work all night long. It's really no wonder Chevy is in the tank again when they let fool employees like you text all night long instead of doing their job..........

Ok, now we are getting somewhere. Thank you for that
So my question is, because evolution takes millions of years per change and we can't follow it from A to Z so-to-speak, how do we know for sure the change in humans is not simply adaptation and not part of a larger evolution?
Whatever level you are able to answer on is fine as I am sure it will be above my knowledge base anyway as this is not in my wheelhouse. So it doesn't have to be super technical. But do we have any way of knowing for sure this isn't simply adaptation?
I'm no expert on evolution either however...
Each word, evolution and adaptation, can stand on their own as individual concepts with unique and also similar qualities. The diversity and yet similarity of the many species here on Earth speaks for this.
There would be no Logical reason to combine the 2 words as each one compliments the other.

Actually, the use of the word “adapt” instead of evolution rather sounds like a cushy way to allow a religious curve that’s acceptable to religious folks.

Just sayin’…IMHO…
