You must be an adult child. Too bad for a grown up.

Do you know what the expression "adult child" means in the U.S.?

Probably not what you were intending to express, though, due to your language barrier, it is not possible to know what you intend.

Does that sounds English to you, Mr. English?
Mathematics is a science like every other sciences. It is also type of language like every other subjects( whether in the Arts, Sciences or Social sciences).

You may have a view that is not like most Christians. Most Bible believing Christians hold that all things in heaven and in earth were created by him.

Sorry woofy, but even conservative judges have said that religion has no place in school as religion. Science on the other hand is just fine. And all judges can easily see that evolution is science based, not religion based.

By the way, there is a legal way to get religion into schools in the U.S.. All you have to do is to write an amendment to the Constitution. Get it to pass the House and the Senate by a 2/3 vote and then get 3/4 of the states to ratify it. That should be simple if the vast majority is on your side.

You can't make readable sense and you criticize me for a typo?

And Mathematics is not a science. There are areas of mathematics that could qualify as a science, but overall no. Mathmatics is used as a means of describing reality. So in science math is used as a more as a "language". Very little of mathematics is done at a level where it is being researched and corresponds to a technical definition of 'science'.

Science cannot be "retarded" in any sense that term is usually used. People can be retarded. Progress can be retarded.

Evolution has more material support than any other theory in the HISTORY of science. It is a proven fact and one of the most elegant theories in science.

Why do you get so angry over everything? I started out trying to help you with your English, but all I got were bitter diatribes in response. Pointing out when you do not make sense is a helpful thing, is it not?

You are subject to your opinion.
Your use of language barrier, is subject to you, but to some others, they will simply object that. English language, as i said earlier, belongs to the English and some others influenced by the English( people of England). But today, it is a global language of communication.

Sincerely( frankly) speaking, evolution is not science but an anti- Godly beliefs/ theory.

I called you that, because you are not God. It is only God that can fully know the heart of man( humans). Not mere mortals like you.

Wow.....Religion Has Always Been In Schools, Its The Progressive Socialist Movement That Has Used The Corrupt Legal System To Get it out.

Are You Sure Your American ?

Until We Remove The Judges Who Are Not Doing Their Jobs, But, Instead Are Interjecting Their Personal Beliefs, We Will Have Liberal Corruption.

And, Your Right, Human Evolution Is Definitely In The Science Field, Under The Veil Of Myth And Unproven Theory.

This is going to be really simplistic and probably get me called a whole lot of names, but that won't be new. Heck, even if you threaten me that won't be new, either. It's just my opinion. Please do not try to find my house to beat me up.

I am not trying to convince anyone either way or the other just trying to make the abstract a little more concrete.

People on Topix have engaged in more than one discussion as to whether I am male, female, or if I exist at all. Some think I am just another alias for someone already on Topix. Unless I am a zhu zhu box, as my picture testifies to, I either exist or I don't. I am either male or female.

In my opinion, people rarely go into anything completely open minded and open for the facts to reveal whatever they reveal. We tend, as human beings, to decide what we believe and then look for or pay more attention to the facts that lend credence to our preconceived ideas and discount facts or ideas that would do the same for the opposing opinion.

I do exist so let's just focus on the question of whether I am male or female. I have often reported myself to be ambidexterphibious, and no one has challenged that, but I will unequivocally state now that I am either a male or female. By now you have almost certainly decided which.

Now, if you believe I am male you can no doubt find things in my posts, past and present, to support that theory. If my theory is correct you would be more likely to discount anything presented that seemed to suggest I was anything other than what you decided for yourself.

It is my opinion that the problem lies is when we assume that what I am or am not is true because you think it is true, but, in fact, what I am or am not changes not based on your opinion.

If, in fact, I am male and have a penis, then your belief that I am female can not make penis fall off or otherwise turn me into a female.

If I am female, your belief that I am male will not cause me to grow a penis to fit your belief.

I think most of the times we find what we want to find and then look for things to support it instead of looking at everything available with an open mind.
