No, it is not. RNA is short for Ribonucleic acid. It is not "H.O.R.S.E. C.R.A.P.". What a ridiculous thing to say!

<quoted text>yeah typical response from the science community ...anything that based on human sense is where science goes wrong...I live by faith not by sense as sense can be flawed and faith is perfect when done Gods way and not interpreted by the believer...bet that just flew over your head!
Go back to your Science books and try to make sense of faith...ya dunce!
You live by the myths created by ancient people when they didnt know much about anything. I live by the knowledge created by modern humans in their pursuit of study of the natural world around us.
Go back to your Great Poof theory and dont bother us.

What about an agnostic atheist?

In case you didn't know, Agnosticism/Gnosticism is about KNOWLEDGE and Atheism/Theism is about BELIEF.

You are the one who brought it up, darling, and the horrendous time in "British" history - as you say- was brought on by the occupation of Ireland by the "British".
I did not say it wasnít, BTW northern Ireland is part of the united kingdom so itís in with the bits you selectively omit when you make claims of state religions.

Yeah, because creatards can't explain them. Wait until Higgs Boson gets figured out, that will be a huge resent discovery, for the creatards. We don't resent discoveries though.
Dang, yer funny! What, exactly, do you think manifesting the Higgs-Boson would prove?

Are you daft?

YOU brought up Northern Ireland, and being "part" of the UK is why they have The Troubles.

And I have been absolutely accurate re: state religion in the UK. One religious denomination is formally recognized and given a privileged status, the "established" church of UK:the Church of England or Anglican Church.

Funny how you ignore me twenty times a day.
Here's a thought: ignore me in complete silence!
Wow! that would really spin my wheels.
I know: show this thread where I blamed Obama for the current unemployment and I will ignore you and all your posts forever.
Until then...STFU.
Aaw, are you feeling left out of the adult conversations again. One day you'll be old enough to join, for now get back to the kiddy table and eat your peas.

Funny, you keep making this completely false claim, yet you cannot show where I did. Of course they already know you're lying, but come on, where's your proof? At least try to prove your assertions, it's fun swatting at them like tiny balls of yarn unraveling quickly.

What are these "signs of the end?"
Prove it to yourself..go read Matthew 24 for your self...and because your not a christian you will scratch you head and still not know the true meaning of Christ's words...it requires a person to be Born Again to Receive Christ as Lord and then and only then can a person receive the Holy Spirit...who give clarification of God Word...This requires time alone in meditation and pray and much patience...Many read Gods word and well most end up like your self because they want there cake now...well God don't work as a waitress to serve you your cake now...God will give you understanding but one must be sincere as a believer in Christ and know that in time Gods words in Scripture will make knowledge and wisdom...but not as the world knows knowledge!
This is Spiritual Wisdom...a much higher plain of knowledge for the Believer's life to protect and bring fulfillment in the believer's life!
I could continue to quote scripture to you but your carnal mind can not comprehend what is meant for only the believer to know...this is why there is a very strong delusion and persuasion from Satan on those who are not saved!
I only wish your life the very best...but faith come only by hearing the word of God and I'm sorry to say you have rejected not me but Christ every time I have given you Scripture to read.
You ask for proof..but your like the pharisees who were the elect of there day and they were blind wolves of there day.
Your not in the same boat as they are...but you reject the very truth of Gods own Son Christ Jesus...all because you have not seen or known Gods love for your life...but today you could simply just except Christ and receive him in prayer and then also ask to receive the Holy Spirit...Won't you please reconsider today?

No, I want you to list these "signs" so I can address them one by one and show you that they are not signs of anything but the human capacity to use perfectly normal events to make you believe anything, it's how John Edwards works, the "psychic" guy.
