Really this debate should be history. Most people believe in both, not one or the her. Proving fundamentalist Christians wrong does not prove there was no creator, nor does proving evolution. The fact you've kicked this stone around for so long proves you are not ready to move on I find it strange this is the piece of the past you choiced to stay in.

It is amazing how so many argue so much over meaningless things. Why do you waste so much time in your "one" life to argue over things that are meaningless to you and your life. Now if they affected your life I could see a point but nothing on here affects your lives. Come here to bullcrap a little is one thing but to continue to pointlessly argue on meaningless things day in and day is a waste of time/life. Maybe life does not have much meaning to some of you or something. Maybe you get satisfaction from arguing or satisfaction from trying to prove someone wrong while trying to prove yourself right. I have no clue why so many do it.
Why do you assume that because something is meaningless to you that it is meaningless to anyone else?

And you accuse people in a derogatory way of getting satisfaction from arguing while you yourself are arguing your point. So hypocritical.

So to enlighten you, so many people do it because they are not willing to roll over at your whim and accept your BS.

The multiple lines of evidence and physical proof that is denied by funnymentalist creatards, in favour of the mythical stories of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves has a considerable amount to say.

I somewhat agree and the physiological

You can believe whatever you want. You can believe that blue is made up of yellow and lime polka dots. You would of course be demonstrably wrong.

And you are demonstrably wrong in this belief too.

When someone says that they believe something a person with a skeptical mind asks them why they believe what they believe. Until you show some evidence a simple "I don't believe you" upsets your case. That is why the beliefs of scientists are based upon evidence. We have evidence of when man lived, we have evidence of where man lived. The species overlap at their times of appearances and disappearances generally. There are a few overlapping species. But most follow one line. This is shown by dating the various fossils by various means.

So what evidence do you have?

If brain case size is any indication of intelligence then human intelligence has most definitely increased over the last quarter of a million years. However using that rule we are at least 10% less intelligent than Cro-magnon man

Interbred, probably, up to 4% of your DNA is Neanderthal

1. It is a public forum. I came out of curiosity.
2. I know as much if not more than you. That is easy to do.
3. Your biggest contribution to this forum is to be a hypocrite.
4. Your biggest contribution to society is to be a drain on taxpayers but you think we owe you that because you are mentally ill.
5. You have a drawer full of dirty socks that you use to please yourself. EWWW! Your sick dude!
6. Repeatedly lie about yourself, what you are about and lie completely to fool the crowd in the room.
7. Like Dan kicked your arse and you became so obsessed with him you even made your name after him to stalk and harass him.
8. Well that is more than enough to show who you really are. Just a sad lying hypocritical person with no life.
Thanks for another example of how you copy the original work of others. Throwing in lies doesn't count, but it sure is funny. Came here out of curiousity. Hilarious! The fact that you publicized my presence here on other forums then immediately began following me around on these threads shows the truth.

You really like to think you are better than other people, but your actions have proven that not to be true. You are simple, easy to read and over estimate your abilities. Don't just take my word for it, ask everyone.

Ron Wyatt fan, huh? That figures.
Wait, wait, I had something...

Hah.

"Arguments that should never be used:

Moon dust thickness proves a young moon.

The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics began at the Fall.(If so, how could Adam and Eve have eaten and digested their food that they were told to eat before the Fall?)

NASA computers, in calculating the positions of planets, found a missing day and 40 minutes, proving Joshua’s “long day”(Joshua 10) and Hezekiah’s sundial movement (2 Kings 20).

There are no beneficial mutations.

Darwin recanted on his deathbed.

Woolly mammoths were flash frozen during the Flood catastrophe.

If we evolved from apes, apes shouldn’t exist today.(In an evolutionary worldview, mankind did not evolve from apes but from an apelike ancestor, from which both humans and apes of today supposedly evolved.)

No new species have been produced.

RON WYATT HAS FOUND MUCH ARCHEOLOGICAL PROOF OF THE BIBLE.(Emphasis mine.)"

That's from Answers in Genesis, "Arguments Creationists Should Avoid".

Bob, you've got to realize that this forum has been inundated with atheist stooges who are not the slightest bit interested in science or in the acquisition of knowledge. They are bent only on promoting their amoral worldview. The level of BS that has been spewed by these ignorant DarwinBots on this forum is becoming legendary.

So some chariot parts underwater are more likely to be evidence of magical suspension of the laws of physics and probably not a boat carrying chariots that sank? You're dumber than I thought.
Well okay, you're not really dumber than I thought...
Funny thing, there was no sunken boat/vessel found with the chariot parts.

I think you have a general misunderstanding of the word 'debunked'. You obviously think it means 'not understood by me'. That would be the only circumstance in which I could agree with your statement.

What chariot parts? You have not linked any evidence?

Did you watch the video that I linked where it told why Ron Wyatt is full of crap?

Did you see that even Answers in Genesis, a creationist site, said that Ron Wyatt is full of crap?

If HTS believes in God does his believe affect your life? If so how? If not then what does it matter what he believes?
