Darwinism?
"Moreover, the Church teaches that the process of evolution is a planned and purpose-driven natural process, guided by God"
Nope. Still waiting for your post showing the Pope accepting Darwinism.
__________
"Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick, told reporters at the National Press Club last week a contemporary Catholic "need not say that creationism is the only answer -- that in six days or seven days, God made the world," according to the Associated Press.
McCarrick said this concept of "theistic evolution" – agreeing with Darwin's evolutionary theory, given that one accepts God’s guidance in the process -- was the view of the late Pope John Paul II."
Said McCarrick: "As long as in every understanding of evolution, the hand of God is recognized as being present, we can accept that."
Still no Darwinism.
Honey we are not interested in what you believe Darwinism to be nor your pedantic cherry picking and deliberately ignoring the evidence

What I sat point here is what Darwinism is actually defined as

As I said, 3 popes beats one archbishop every time.

Keep trying…

So if you see a rabbit's paw prints in the dirt, you automatically assume that a rabbit's been here.
Try doing that with no evidence of rabbits.

How did dinosaurs reproduce if there was no DNA?

Is that why they went extinct?

As I have said repeatedly to buck 3 Popes beats an archbishop

Whether you know anything about what we are discussing is quite doubtful judging by your pathetic and ignorant input. However if you have anything pertinent to say then feel free.

Ahh yes Saul Alinsky
Once you accept your own death, all of a sudden you're free to live. You no longer care about your reputation. You no longer care except so far as your life can be used tactically to promote a cause you believe in.

So we have more bongo lies and guesswork, well done, keep it up

Mendacious? You are too polite, Mongo.
Topix is a great classroom, huh?
I bet you didn't know the Pope is an atheist, God was disproven by E=mc^2, and dinosaurs had no DNA.
Those 3 revelations alone are worth your time here.
Ahh more buckism - so because the pope does not believe in the university of buck then he must be atheist? How pathetic you are.

More buckism – you seem to have omitted the omnipotent bit but we have come to expect cherry picking form you

Who said dinosaurs had no DNA? Certainly not me so maybe you are even more confused than you hope you are

Well, again, if they did not know good from evil, how could they have known disobeying God was evil?

They died just as they would have anyway. Presumably after Eve had incestuous sex with her son/grandchildren.
<quoted text>
It seems rather foolish to rely on faith alone when you could have simply sought the actual scientific evidence for yourself to verify it. If my life was at stake, I certainly would have done some extra research.
That's why religion is so harmful; there is no objective evidence to back it up, only faith and baseless claims.

What about the talking donkey in Numbers?
<quoted text>
What was the necessity for placing that tree there at all? And why right in front of them? Obviously, it was a set-up.
It doesn't matter if they knew it was evil. They knew it was disobeying God.

They also didn't have to know the apple was rich in Potassium.

Yes, you did, actually.
You said the Pope, and the entire chuch, accepts Darwinism.
That is saying they accept that God did not create life.
Chrissy Stalin, if you had simply admitted your use of the term "Darwinism" was wrong from the start, you could have saved yourself all this lying.
But then we would have missed the entertainment of watching you twist.
No I didn’t

Don’t lie, it does not become you

Actually yes it does become you, it seems lying is your default state

Did I not provide links to show that you are talking out of our butt crack?

Of course I did and you, as usual choose to ignore them or cherry pick them, the typical mark of the deliberately ignorant.

But this God of yours is supposed to be all knowing and all merciful. This story shows him to be neither.
So what was he doing? Did he intend for humans to be vile sinners all along? Because according to the story, that is what he got.
Capiche?
N-th generation. Kinda like the n-th degree. That is, generations unlimited. From the mathematical use of "n" meaning an arbitrary number.
Instead of talking about actual contradictions in the Bible, of which there are many, you choose to make up stupid ones.

Was there any specific part of Harris' thesis that you wanted to critique? I find it very constructive and life affirming.
I find it presumptuous, exaggerated, and creepy.

Logically, I cannot use empirical evidence to prove a negative. Sorry.
Sin is a religious concept, and so yes, you need a deity to have sin. Although it should be said that there are religions (with deities) which do not have a concept of sin.
No, you do not need a deity to have sin.

You do not even have to have a deity to have religion. In fact, that is the case you now theorize.
