<quoted text>If evolution is a fact why haven't monkeys and apes evolved into humans yet?
And there is no sign that this is ever going to happen.
Evolution is just a theory for the gullible, because there is no proof for it.
The evolutionists are still looking for the missing link, which does not exist, at least so far.
After all this is the reasoning that atheists use when asking for proof of the existence of God. Theories will not do.

I have more to say about this, but later, after I hear your case for evolution without any theories.

I hope this will be a civilized discussion between us, without the idiots intervening without anything useful to say.
Too late.

You just did.

You can't debate with people not willing to listen to reason.

This is more a way to know that we are not alone and, in fact, are in very good company with out non belief.

I just have to drop down a level or two. It's much easier being as stupid as most people than it is to teach them to be smarter. It's cathartic.

Atheists posting here are giving themselves, and Atheism, a bad name.
There is nothing but hate in their posts.
If this is what makes an atheist then I wouldn't want to be one.
And before they start throwing insults, as usual and as expected, I do not belong to any religion, I just believe in God. It is a personal matter.
Which is another thing about atheists. It is obvious that their issue is not whether God exists or not, but their hate of Christians. I never see them, except in rare cases, mentioning other religions which also believe in God and are committing atrocities in the name of God, as Muslims are doing.
They should be thankful that they are living in a Christian country which gives them the freedom to be atheists and free speech, even if offensive.
If they were living in a muslim country they would be beheaded and executed in public for blasphemy.
Freedom of speech also does not exist in officially atheist countries, like China.
So nobody in their right mind can take these atheists posting here seriously.
They don't want discussion, but just spit out their hate.
I have no doubt that if given the power and chance they would torture and kill all Christians.
So who said that atheism is not a religion?
And a fanatical religion at that?
I don't want to hear the usual endless list of name calling for answers, that is for children and fanatics, but a serious discussion about the points I mentioned, and also those raised by others. But I am probably asking too much.
I don't hate you @ all.

I only hate the abuse that Christianity always seems to give a rubber stamp to.

The air pollution caused by the steel industry to make inefficient wind turbines kills a lot of people with breathing difficulties and, per MWh, kills more steel workers than other forms of electricity generation, including nuclear.

We have to move away from fossil fuels to produce electricity. And nuclear power is definitely NOT the solution, renewable energy is.

"Aura Mytha" is not an evolving ape ..His species is merely a cousin .

Your assertion would be claiming whales are evolving dogs ...they're not even the same species anymore . Just a common ancestor ..
