<sigh>

You seem to think that you simply stating something then refusing to back it up constitutes debate.

Reading back through this thread it is apparent that evidence for evolution has been presented - but you can't come up with an argument against it - this isn't debate.

You have not produced evidence against evolution - this isn't debate.

Now the same thing happens in the community where it actually matters (the scientific one)

Which is why there is no controversy in science on evolution.

But why not up your game?

Present what you think is the best evidence AGAINST evolution

Now that would be a debate

One argument for evolution I would present is ERVs and the correlation with the heirarchies we deduce from other lines of evidence.

Now dispute that -
that would be a debate

So far you seem to just make assertions that you can't/won't back up

Actually, they place more value in scientific data than the bible, otherwise they'd never gotten anywhere and we'd still be stuck with Apple IIes.

The first computer I ever worked with (outside of school) was the TRS-80. It used a cassette tape for storage.

At school we had DEC-Writers (with paper tape storage) connected by 300 bps modems to a honeywell mainframe. We were given 20k to work with, but after 5pm we could call them up an they would give us a whole 50k! Crank it up, baby!

Ah, the sad ole days.

Blah, blah, blah, blah. You are an eggless chicken on the way to the chopping block. Religion has limitations. Where mythology stops, that is where science almighty, starts.
Did your micro-god create the internet, or was that a product of science?
Did your micro-god create computers, or was that a product of science?
Did your micro-god create nuclear power, or was that a product of science?
What has your micro-god done for me lately?
Without the knowledge of God, man is nothing.
God created man, and man are creating things/ products, to date.

<quoted text> We are still on the subject. If the Times of London, uses the word, skeptic, in their dailies, they did that, based on the fact that, whether American, Australian, Canadian and what so ever English, are all English language, which originated in England, UK.

Skeptic is still Greek in origin and therefore owned by the Greeks, BY ORIGINATION.

You inspire me to great nonsense.

English Americans to date, has/ have ties with the people of England. Though, majority of them prefer calling themselves, Americans.

You do know that substantially less than 50% of the American population trace back to England.

Just an aside. You can say more stupid things now.

Broken clocks are right twice a day. You, not so much.
You can continue to try to work out your feelings of inferiority in this forum, if you wish.
Greeks don't spell theirs, the way the British and Americans do.
British and Americans, can really understand each other.
But it will the British or the American some time, before he or she could understand the Greek man or woman.
Let off that scales, covering your blind eyes.

Dude IS British (English), so he owns the language. As the owner he can choose whatever he feels is fair. If you don't want to pay him you don't have to use his language.

What am I saying? You DON'T use his language.

Hey, Dude. You don't have a leg to stand on!

But English is borrowed from Latin an Greek.

So we should pay money to Greece and Italy.

<quoted text> Ofcourse, you already know the answer. Do you know the seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and year of your death? If yes, then God does not exist.
The knowledge of man is unlimited compared to that of God, that is why man, to date, are unable to stop the inevitables called, death.
Death is simply defined as the power of God over humans. When it comes to death, humans are just a pack of cards.

You go into these religious rants whenever you are losing (all of the time).

Read for comprehension.
The English Americans are the largest ethnic group in the US and not the German Americans or the Irish Americans.
Most English Americans, prefer the title, Americans. Your percentage or statistics, are wrong.
