Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Parts is parts, Auralie. Why would you ever believe yours just appeared magically? In the beginning, that is.
BTW, the machine you is requires maintenance and fuel. Like your car. Or computer.

Yeah, your "understanding" only works when you make a ton or presuppositions, assumptions, and twist the definitions of words. That's your problem. Life wasn't "created" by any stretch of the imagination, it never is, it grows, it develops, that's very different from created.
Seeds.

Magical poofs, huh?

You really need to get a broader education and understanding of things.

Exercise your religious freedom. Worship your deity. There is nothing I can do to stop that, unless I interfere with that process. I don't want to stop you from going to church, I don't want to eliminate your bible, I don't want you to stop your prayers, I don't want to stop you from teaching your children about your religion. I don't want you to stop practicing your religion.
Exercise your religion in your mind, exercise your religion in your churches, exercise your religion in your home. Keep it out of the government. Keep it out of the public schools. Just keep it to yourself. Your religion becomes unassailable when exercised that way.
Well, ole Scar. We agree...

Well said.

Uh huh. That's a false reality.

Your DNA constructs the body parts.

Honest. It has the blueprints, and makes the machinery. Lots of chemical stuff involved, too, even makes some of them.

Is that real?

Gee, for a diehard abiogenesis fan, you sure have delusions of being more than just an accident that happened in the course of time. Why is that?

<quoted text>So it comes down to you NOT believing what science tells us is true.
No, I just do't blindly believe like you do.
You apparently are a member of the club that firmly believes that ALL scientists world-wide are involved in a conspiracy to supply totally false information to the masses.
No I'm not.
Interesting. you do know how stupid you sound right?
How stupid "I" sound?? YOU wrote all that nonsense.
Facts are pieces of information that have been confirmed through evidence.
True
A fact is -----INDISPUTABLY THE CASE.
Again, true.
In other words, the information cosmologists have about the BBT is A FACT,
OH! So close.... The 'facts' they have about BBT is constantly changing. IF it was FACT, it'd never change.
it is indisputable,
I just disputed it.
it is supported by evidence.
That 'evidence' is subject to scurtiny & change. NOT fact.
Thats the end of the story numbnuts.
Thank God.
Now if you want to question thousand upon thousands of hard working very intelligent cosmologists then talk to them.
Crap, I thought it was over.
If you want to make your uneducated point on this site, post your credentials as a cosmologist.
Wait, you want me to post comments as as uneducated cosmologist?
Or at lest supply us with some evidence....
Like your 'evidence' of BBT?
yeah I know,
Not much.
very scary word for you.......on your expertise as a cosmologist.
The same uneducated cosmologist you want me to post as?
Otherwise comments like you just wrote make you look like a total assclown.
I'd say the use of the word "assclown" speaks wonders to your intelligence.
"Mister Redneck, all evidence point to the fact that you are very sick and may well die unless we perform a life saving procedure."
Really? What made-up evidence do you have that I'm sick?
Redneck....
That's me.
"Ah, no thanks I know you doctors think you have facts, but they are only assumptions based on so-called evidence."
Are you talking about medical doctors or uneducated cosmologists? Please stick to one topic, son.

No, but one must rationally *accept* that the Big Bang Theory is the best available scientific theory that can explain what we observe today. It is not a matter of "belief".


Oh my, the potatoe, potatoh thing? lol

OK, you say rationally accept, the rest of us say belief. It's the same damn thing.

Machines can be repaired by replacement parts indefinitely.
The 2nd law reaffirmed , but the entire unit can be remade as it is only a sum of parts. It is still the exact same machine.

Biological organisms suffer atrophy , and do suffer the burden of consisting of irreplaceable parts. While reassembly may be possible
you end up with a different entity.

This could change as our inventions gain complexity , but for now this is true.

There are lots of machines made with integral parts that you junk nowadays. Especially electronic types.

The only problem with biological parts is the lack of knowledge to have the DNA rebuild it. It may be a shut down link that can be reactivated and recalibrated. Of course it could hurt like hell as it repairs, after all, everything was growing in synch originally, and slowly. But the instructions are still in the DNA. They have to be tweaked.

The blueprint is in the DNA. That is how it gets transferred to a newer and modified unit.

The chemical code in DNA turns into a factory. And quite a factory.

Speaking of old machines, my old Stanley garage door opener died in its sleep last night. I am good about bringing dead machines back to life, but this may be eternally bazook. No schematics and no desire to laboriously trace the circuitry out. Then I will strip parts to make a lifter for my hot tub cover.

As I said before sorry but you can't have it both ways.
I am very pro choice in today's day and he we simply cannot condemn women to a potential death sentence because birth control measures make some religious people upset.
All I can say to that lot is get over it. Vacuuming out a clump of cells isn't murder.
