LOL! Said like a true Irishman! <smiles>
My grandfather (paternal) was Irish- County Cork. His one younger son married an English woman(London no less)- the fireworks at family gatherings was a sight to behold. And those were just the one's indoors :0
"Cork"? Well, I suppose he couldn't help that.

And, in all seriousness, the Irish really don't hold much of a grudge agin' the English. On an individual level, they're quite nice people.

The evidence supporting evolution fills libraries, and includes data from most branches of science.
Abiogenesis is irrelevant to the theory of evolution, since evolution only deals with existing life. There are several hypotheses regarding how it could have happened, but without a viable time machine, I don't see how we will ever prove which model actually happened.
i reject the libraries filled with anti-christ propaganda and instead receive the one's filled with Godly wisdom and experience. hey, but you gotta be who the devil is bullying you to be and i gotta be who God is gently guiding me to be :-)

Your vague standard is why you remain a so-called "Christian".
Everything you said above.....all starts with YOU.....
- "is to receive Christ as Lord and Savior"
- "if we do not"

Not much faith in Jesus or "God" at all when you break it all down, huh?
DOH!
you sick with trusting in your capitolized deity SELF and i'll stick with trusting JESUS.

It would be a deal, if you did trust Jesus, but we can see you don't, as you only trust in less than half of what he taught.

Tsk-tsk....digging yourself in deep, huh?

The difference between ignorance and stupidity is that ignorance can be cured with education, while stupidity refuses to even try to learn.

Non-stupid xians accept the reality of evolution:

I went to Sunday school as a child, back when I was a xian. In a christian high school. I spent a fair bit of time in religious studies. That is where I learned that the Bible is not reliable for reporting factually on early events. There was no flood, the world did not magically pop into existence in 6 days. Since then, I have followed archaeological reports showing that NONE of the Bible prior to King Josiah (641- 609 B.C.E.) has any bearing on the actual events.

Why blindly swallow mythological nonsense when the real world is SOOOOOooooo much more interesting, and useful.

YOU'RE THE ONE WHO TURNED AWAY AND SWALLOWED the false idea of reality from eating of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and consequently now you think evil is good and good is evil!

you hafta go back to eating from the TREE OF LIFE which is found in the Gospel if you want to reverse the curse that you're under.....

What judgment? My assessment of what you have already told me?

I didn't judge you, I just reiterated what you and all otehr so-called "Christians" have stated to me.....you don't believe in all of what Jesus taught.

Are you going to deny this? Are you going to twist the words around into your own liking and continue to deny this?

Probably so - you are dishonest.

When you can begin to admit to the lies you promote, you won't change.

Change comes from within, not from outside sources, as you and others like to think.

So be it.

As long as creationists are trying to push their nonsense into science classrooms, there can be no peaceful coexistence. I am vehemently opposed to any attempt to weaken the education system by teaching myths as though they had any scientific merit.

What you do in the privacy of your church is entirely your business. Well, yours, and however many other people are there with you...

Wow. I have long known that xians have no clue as to what the Bible means, but this goes so far beyond ANYTHING that I have ever seen. Did you type that in error? Where you seriously drunk or stoned at the time? I really hope that there was some for of impairment going on, like a bleeding head wound with concussion.

The whole point of the Tree of the Fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil was that whosoever ate from that tree would gain the understanding of the difference between good and evil. It was a GOOD thing that Adam and Eve ate of that fruit, otherwise humans would have remained children.

Human beings have brains. Regardless of accepting the reality of evolution, or holding to the myths of creationism, those brains are meant to be used. Part of the message of Genesis is that we are created in the image of the Gods - and that includes knowing good from evil, and working to support the good over the evil, not in shoving one's head as far up their rear as it will go and desperately clinging to ignorance with both hands.

Hmm, the Tree of Eternal Life, that would make humans as Gods, able to live forever? It was the fear that humans would do just that that caused Yahweh to kick A&E out of the garden. Not only kick them out, but put an angel with a flaming sword to block the entrance. Once again, xians totally reverse what the Bible says...
