As long as the person you want to make love to is a consenting adult, you are correct. Well, and don't operate heavy machinery while stoned....

1) science in general is not anti-anything, but science so-called that assumes regarding spiritual/eterrnal things that it cannot possibly test is anti-Christ indeed.
Pure BS. Science is never anti-xian. Science, BY DEFINITION only deals with the natural, observable world.

Thus you demonstrate a thorough ignorance regarding the meaning of the term "theory". In scientific usage, a theory is something that has been thoroughly proven, with all available evidence supporting it, and no evidence contrary to that theory.

for example, we currently have a law of gravity, but no theory of gravity. We can calculate the gravitational attraction between two masses, but we have no explanation for why it occurs or how it occurs.

In contrast to gravity, the theory of evolution is well understood and supported by all available evidence, with no evidence contrary to the theory of evolution.

It is only a fraud to those that examine the evidence and make reasoned, thoughtful judgments based on facts and evidence.

BS - prove the theory of evolution by creating life with slime struck by lightning and monitoring it until it progresses into humanity. until you can, you're believing a ridiculous fable made up by occult antichristians who HATE the idea of being accountable to a Creator:-)

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.

Start by taking biology courses at your local community college. Also, take some classes in understanding logic. Then again, you might have to start out by learning grade school science...

bottom line: since we were created to be in a family relationship with God and since the only way to be thus is to receive Christ as Lord and Savior; if we do not, our complete existense will have been an epic failure no matter how 'good' of a person we thought we were:-)
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"
- "our complete existense will have been an epic failure no matter how 'good' of a person we thought we were"

Not much faith in Jesus or "God" at all when you break it all down, huh?

DOH!

the "teachings" of Jesus, if you will, is "except you eat My flesh and drink My blood you have no part with Me"
have you digested Christ, duane, or do you only think of Him in sentimental and moral ways as a ghandi-like social activist?:-)
Why don't you just ask Jesus yourself if he believes in eating someones flesh and drinking their blood.

I have found out he is back and is in Australia.

Just when I think you can not get any more insane, you make a post like this.
Muslims are all atheists ? Are you really this crazy ?
Well, I have heard the way some Muslims talk about atheists and it isn't pretty. Xians they can accept more, because they have a belief system too.

That said, there are a number of Topix Christians who I both like and respect.
There are some. But that's because I judge them on their behaviour, not their beliefs.

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
