Plenty of scientists believe in God, so I would presume they would give credit to God. The important thing is we are trying to learn about the world and the universe. That should be a priority.

So refining information based on new techniques and new evidence is bad? Should medicine work the same way? Why is progress bad?

plagerism?
plagiarism: noun
1. an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization AND the representation of that author's work as one's own, as by not crediting the original author: It is said that he plagiarized Thoreau's plagiarism of a line written by Montaigne.
TP: the written authorization in right on my hard drive.
Do you ever know what the fu(k you're talking about? Or do you just babble along hoping somebody reads a line or two of your BS?
Do those websites you keep copying large amounts of text ALLOW idiots like you to do so? Just because it's on a website doesn't mean it is public domain! You need a lesson in copying rights. You might check your sources. I know you won't, you have too much ego and not enough brains, but I thought you might like to know you may be breaking the law with your cutting and pasting whole pages from various sites.

Ironically you could be totally correct here.
But then no-one is going there expecting to find human life.
I disagree. There is anticipation of finding the remnants of life and water. Finding methane in the atmosphere implies that there is the possibility that there might be something that is alive there now. Methane is produced by living creatures. Personally, I doubt anything would still be alive there considering the high amount of radiation that continually bombards Mar's surface.

Finding life would be cool but I hope that NASA's employees have enough sense not to bring any of it back here.:-/

Lang, you might avoid cutting and pasting entire webpages like this. Many sitees copywrite their pages, so what you are doing is plagerism. What many allow is a short excert and a link to the source material.
As long as he doesn't claim that it's his own work there shouldn't be any problem with him quoting a webpage in his arguments.

Congratulations to NASA
NASA?

That happened because enough people prayed hard enough and God, in mercy or by divine planning, granted it to be so. After all, the odds of launching such a thing and landing it safely must be over a gazillion to one so it could never happen without divine intervention.

/theist mode.

Big time props for all the engineers at NASA to pull this off. This is well worth the equivalent of what... 13 hours of combat operations in Iraq or Afghanistan?

So only the immediate, tangible things science reveals is only worthwhile?

Electricity took quite some time to understand and harness for practical applications. Waste of time.

Atomic Theory was just a waste of time? It was only "theoretical" for a number of decades.

Beginning to understand the causes of earthquakes and volcanoes via plate tectonics - utter waste of time.

Germ Theory of Disease - utter waste of time.

Discovering DNA - utter waste of time.

Haddock over-fishing and collapse of a fishing industry. utter waste of time.

2000 years of translating the Bible with multiple versions and no real answers but lots of bickering and war - worth every second.

Many individuals believe that there are real life vampires. As a matter of fact, there are actually groups around the world that actively hunt vampires. Then, there are others that actually believe that they are vampires. Considering all of the propaganda and stories in circulation that offers vampire facts and tales, it is common for individuals to ask if the existence of vampires is based on fact or fiction. This continues to remain one of the worlds greatest unsolved mysteries. Here, you will find many unique vampire stories and an assortment of vampire facts.
http://webpages.shepherd.edu/ckline01/website...
It is highly possible that vampires are evolutionary creatures that drink blood to survive. The vampire bat found in South and Central America lives solely on blood. This creature is a mammal just like humans.
Firstly, Vampires are a creation by fiction writers.

Secondly, Vampire Bats are named after vampires

Many organisms feed on blood. Mosquitos, bats, leeches. That doesn't mean that Dracula is real.

Sorry, forreal, I was slow in understanding what you were trying to say.
I had to read through all your flaming and name-calling to find any content.

Let me see if I got it right this time:
God made all the stars strictly for our amusement,
and Mars counts as a star.
Since it's all for us, there was no reason for God to put life anywhere else.
Did I get it right this time?
