Correct.
And scientists use extrapolations and experiments to say that DNA existed long before it was discovered.
I think you're actually starting to learn.
If the experiments say that DNA existed, it was at that point DISCOVERED dumbass. Holy shit, you're not so powerful God who is terribly flawed, didn't do a very good job with your sense of logic, but what else can you expect from a God thing that has serious limits on what he can do. Kind of a worthless God. I'll Choose CROM, at least I know he created the earth and sky.

Finding myself, or "I am" is the highest learning.

Criss Jami is full of shit, I am special, being able to do what I do better than most makes me "special" It took no effort whatsoever to "find myself" it's incredibly easy once you understand just who you really are. My Atheism played a big part in finding the truth that allowed me to discover myself, give it a try before becoming a friggin hermit!!!!

It is only slightly more similar than our DNA is to that of caterpillars.
thanks for the input but I'll take the word of the American Museum of Natural History over that of a washed up football player. Kind of makes sense when you put it that way doesn't it!!!

Nothing happens, to Bert, until science says so.
Lucky for him science discovered sexual reproduction, or he would still be a virgin.
...I maybe presumptuous there.
Persistence in childish word games points to a frustration level that seems beneath you.

Here's the logic that evades you each and every time. Dinosaurs always had DNA, the question is not that dinosaurs have DNA, and it's NOT a question of them not having it until science says so, it's a question of science being unaware of DNA until it was discovered. I'll not participate in your childish word games or your attempts to twist logic to shape your own private conclusions, so conform to reason and logic or piss off, your choice!!!!

My topstrap was broken a bit further back. The cylinder exploded to the top left. A hip shot would have removed my head. The barrel was also cut down. There is a half a cylinder laying somewhere in Bentonville, AR.
There is a God. He looks out for dummies.
I rode about 25 feet on the front wheel of my motorcycle after a jump one time.

God can't violate His nature any more than you can.
When you see a canyon, you can either walk away from it, cross the bridge or climb down it. You cannot fly over it because you will it to be.
God can't lie, can't break a promise, can't learn anything new, can't remember a time He didn't exist, can't remember forgiven sins, can't foresee a time He won't exist.
He also can't stop loving you.
No matter how much you hate Him.
I'm NOT a God of course I can't violate my nature.

So apparently God can't "Will" something to take place? He had no trouble parting the Res Sea, or causing a global flood now did he?

He "can't stop loving me" really....does that mean even though I totally reject his and Jesus (actually one of the same) That I will NOT spend eternity in lakes of fire? Cool, now I can sleep tonight, had me concerned for awhile!!!! NOT

I wonder if you realize all the "can't's" in your post 7 altogether, boy your God sure is not much, I know people that can do more than this God thing of yours.

BTW, how do you come by this knowledge about your God?

What a worthless God, any God would be better that this one, I still think Crom is pretty cool, don't you?

Oooh.

I slid that far riding on the back of one. Loose gravel on the road. Picked scabs for a long time. Also the primary reason I never had a hankering to buy one.

Did a beautiful somersault over a mountain bike's handlebars in my 40's. I didn't try jumping any more logs after that.
