And yet all of those are components of organic molecules, and have been demonstrated to be able to come into existence as a result of non-living processes.

Exactly what we would expect to find if non-living material led to the earliest life.

Again, you cannot give a scientific definition of "complexity". For how long will you continue to run from this.

(hence their name "Tonka") the Big yellow Tonka dump truck was inspired by the big iron mine trucks in Minnesota.
You probably don't even realize that
The steal factory's in Pittsburg and cleveland get 95% of their steal from Minnesota. Minnesota has the purest iron in the world. Orr grades above 65% pure. Orr so pure it can be welded straight out of the ground, purer then Pig iron. I bet you didn't know that 3M stands for "Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing"
I'd bet I've been out of the Corp longer then you've been alive.
10 years ya right, I've been retired from my first job for 12 years.
KJV, yes the Iron Range had some very pure ore, but you could never weld even pure hematite. This is beyond stretching the truth, this is a lie.

I suppose that you could "weld" almost any two rocks together. It will not weld the same way that iron will. To do that you would still have to smelt the ore. Pure hematite is about 67% iron by weight. Of course it is 3/5 oxygen by molar analysis. So remember when people give you figures that there is often more than one way to get an answer.

You're right. If those people had not invaded our country, taken our land, taken our women and children and killed our men, there would be no English in America.

I just stated a fact. Islam is currently the fastest growing of the major religions.
You might find this article interesting. It explains not only that Islam and other religions are growing at a faster rate, but explains the different methods of calculating growth. Conversion seems to be the highest in Islam and other religions, while it may be that the growth in Christianity is in part due to the fact that newborns are automatically counted as members of the religion. There are some other fun facts in the article.

In America, there is a definite interest in Buddhism and religions like it. Americans seem to be tiring of the hellfire and brimstone, stone your children religions and going toward a more peaceful, introspective type of religious association. That seems to be the biggest improvement.

I am hoping that the fundamentalist fanatics will soon be outnumbered and will have to either change or have their religion die out for good. Same with Islam and any other hate-filled religion.

Hmm. There's a perspective I was not expecting. Oh, well. Some of us dream our dreams, and some of us are always dreaming someone else's.

In true sense or reality, fact can never be truth. Christianity stands above Islam, to date.

Nope. To be a majority in the world, there would have to be more than 50% of the world as Christian.
But only 33% of the world is Christian.
Therefore, Christians are a minority in the world, not a majority.
But Christians count newborns as Christian. Newborns cannot make a decision to be Christian or anything else. In 2008 4,208,000 children were born. Since the US claimed 76% Christianity in 2008, that means 76% of the births were counted as members of Christian churches, which significantly decreases the number of Christians. Combine that number of children with the number of children under the age of 5 (the age when a child normally starts kindergarten and is still not able to make a choice of religion) and you decrease the number of Christians again. Then, take the number of people who have left Christianity but are still on the rolls of their churches as members. Quite a bit different than 76%, isn't it?

I left my church two years ago and ask them to remove me from their membership rolls. They still have not done that. No church wants people to know how many people are leaving the church and therefore will lie by omission about the members of people in their churches.

Many people claim Christianity on a survey simply because they do not want to say they no longer believe.

So the actual number of Christians in the US will never be known. That alone decreases the 33% claimed worldwide.
