Not such a rarity, really. I make a lot of typos, and I don't catch or correct them all. I'd say about half of my posts contain at least one mistake. The most common is not capitalizing the first word of a sentence. I also tend to stick "e"s in where they don't belong. And I reverse letters or hit two when I meant to hit one, and sometimes I just don't hit a key hard enough, so there are letters that are missing altogether. Occasionally, I decide to change the way I've phrased something but forget to delete an extraneous word.

I do manage to spot most of these errors--right after hitting the "Post Comment" button.

Yes, DNA was non-existent in their minds but it wasn't non-existent. It was invisible to their eyes but it was never invisible.
I think as we progress in the next few hundred years, God will become more & more less "invisible" and "non-existent".
"more & more less" LOL

DNA wasn't viewed before people saw it. It was invisible. For some birds and other animals, glass is invisible. I could be looking right at a stick bug and not see it, so it could be invisible.

"It was invisible to their eyes but it was never invisible." - This is a contradictory statement.

You shouldn't have invested in this argument. Now you're stuck. I'd rather you stay stuck. That's funny and entertaining. For you to admit that you are wrong at this point would be a real disappointment. Loud and wrong is what I want from you. It's what I expect.

That means...let me put this together...

Since I haven't seen them, and they are invisible, that means that they must exist! Not seeing them is proof!

Now you're beginning to understand. The fact that we can't see them is evidence of their skill.

Why do you ignore the studies that have been cited for you? Are they the work of the devil? Does god throw off the results to mess with people? I don't understand how you can rationalize that.
I don't pay too much attention to a scientific study of a non-scientific property.

Besides, I KNOW that prayer works. God has answered my prayers.

You don't have to believe me, but you're being pointless by arguing it with me.

I guess we're talking about the same thing in a different way.
DNA was never invisible - never not visible. It was always visible, we just had to find a way to see it.

You suffer from confirmation bias, so it's easy to know that your prayers were not "answered," you just accepted things as they are then gave your imaginary friend good marks no matter what happened.

So tell me this: If your religion taught that black people were lesser beings, and should be kept apart from white people, then would you be a bigot if you promoted segregation, or would you just be exercising your freedom of speech or religion?
I'll give you a third option: Both.
Bigotry is bigotry, dude. Even if couched as exercising your own freedoms.
“If your religion taught…..”

This hypothetical equation is not congruent to what the Bible teaches. And my religion does not teach racial segregation.

Nothing you have said releases you from your intolerance for religion. That Sir is bigotry, and you are awkwardly trying to realign bigotry to include people of faith. However the official definition of the word,“bigot” does not align with your skewed definition.

Bigotry is an ugly word. But the practice of bigotry is even more repulsive. I can’t stop your bigotry. Only you have control over this. And you’re not reprieved by trying to push the bigotry label off on someone else.
