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.

Thank you Doctor, at least you did look into the Hopper Bug mechanical gears.
To answer you question,“why did he allow for the gear system to molt away and NOT regrow?”
A damaged gear in a juvenile Hopper Bug could be replaced during the next molting. But with an Adult Hopper Bug there’s no mechanics around with spare gears and no replacements from molting.
A broken gear means doom for the adult bug. If the adults didn’t lose the mechanical gears. A bug shop with mechanics would need to be designed and built.
Be careful Doc or you will find yourself in that trap. If it’s too complex and mechanical by nature, then evolution did it.
Now my questions for you. As a species how would the Hopper Bug juvenile know it’s species is diminishing? And a set of mechanical gears would be needed to continue the species? Other insects and bugs don’t have toothed mechanical gears like found on an old analog clock.
"WEAK" argument pops, if anything breaks on the adult it means doom, from its digestive components, its lungs, heart, anything at all.

The juveniles didn't KNOW anything, they are incapable a reasoning, the processes of evolution, very slowly over a very long period of time, experiments with ways to make the species more adaptable to it environment. Like this:

You find an colony of ants, you spray the nest with insecticides, almost all of the ants die, but just maybe a few survive. The ones that survive had a very slight resistance to the insecticide, they didn't KNOW this, but it did pass on it's genes to the next generation of ants, these ants also had the resistance to the insecticide. The rate at which ants reproduce is very rapid so you can see how this resistance is rapidly passed on the future generations. Once again the hopper bugs, like the ants didn't KNOW, it was just the process of evolution doing what it does to promote adaptation and in the end survival.

I know gays think that. they think people are born with a sex drive.
That's stupid.
I'm wondering why people think that Christians focus so much attention on one sin when we don't.
How many discussions have there been on this thread alone about premarital sex between heterosexuals?

You may not agree with the good Doctor.
But he is a free man to hold and express his views.
We may not agree with him but that’s freedom.
And you're absolutely correct.

Right up to the point where your right to your opinion infringes on someone else's right to his/her own life.

Right there, you're apt to meet gunfire - and guess what? A Bible will NOT stop a bullet - unless your opponent is silly enough to shoot you in the Bible.

So you are saying your god is outside this universe?
You best have a word with RR, he’s the self proclaimed expert
And for some reason he now denies that his god is outside this universe – go figure
No, nobody said it was inside or outside.

You say it cannot be inside.

But your basis for saying it is stupid.

Apologies, Ben. You're right. You're always right.
Only the NT is Christian.
You don't believe the English Language Bible is the Perfect Word of God (even though you don't know any other language).
You don't believe in the Hebrew Scriptures that Jesus (a Jew) did.
You don't believe Jesus is God.
You don't believe Jesus is the Son of God.
You don't believe in the Virgin Birth.

Why do you call yourself a Christian ?

She didn't say "created". Why do you twist her words ? Maybe you are just not literate enough in English to tell the difference between "Gave us" and "Created".
Are you taking English lessons from RR ? LOL
I didn't say she said "created", Dumbass.

I said what she said, which is "gave us".

But then she changed that, saying she said "used".

She lied.

Now how is it I twisted her words? She twisted her words.
