who created your existence Bill . You can rule out evolution because your primate cousins are still picking fruit out of feces after thousands of years . Where do you come from ? You tell me you are the only being given ability to even have normal conversation . I think not . We as the human race are created by a higher power , which sets us aside from monkeys if not we would be foraging in nature just as they do . You doubting judgement from god saddens me . I thought you would be more intelligent than this ? I pray you would understand that it is not just all a coincidence ( your existence ) but rather a gift of life from God . You will be judged in the end regardless of your or my belief . God created life , you sir are a form of life . Life depends on peace love and compassion to ultimately survive . Does hate breed life ? I don't think so . Think about it . I do not have any hate for you just your ignorance of life and your soul . I forgive that . I pray for you .
oh yea

I pray every day for all those who don't believe in God. You ask for proof, Look into the mirror everyday my friend. As Brian Strange said " The ancestors scientist claim we came from are still in the jungles and no more advanced intellectually or physically than they were millions of years ago. My father was a preacher, Alva Bunch, and before he got saved was one of the meanest people I ever met in my life. Then one day he met God!!! His whole life was changed. He, as the Bible says, became a new creature. He preached the word of God for 30 yrs and saw many people saved and on their way to living a Christian life. I lost my father this yr in April and this has been the hardest thing I've ever endured. The ONLY thing that brings me peace is TRUSTING and BELIEVING in what he preached, "THE WORD OF GOD". I KNOW beyond a shadow of doubt I will see him again when my life has perished because I "Believe". That is all Christ asked of this horrible human race is to "BELIEVE" in him, accept him as our savior and we WILL be saved. I pray that GOD deals with all of the non believers. I pray for your souls. If you don't believe in God then obviously you believe nothing will happen after death. You won't have a soul to go anywhere. But I ask of you"WHAT IF" . What if is a huge statement. Would you really want to take a chance on "what if". I pray that you don't wait for "what if". Please while there is still breathe in your body turn to God.

My existence isn't evidence of any god.

Brian Strange doesn't know what he's talking about. We didn't come from chimpanzees or gorillas or any modern ape.

Can you tell us why we have fossil hominids that show a clear progression of human evolution?

Did your god start making people a couple million years ago and he just kept screwing up, but got a little better each time?

Where might we find those fossils that show progression of human evolution?

Evolution/Creation

Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry you off as his prey.—Col. 2:8.
Today, there is a rising tide of atheistic and evolutionist propaganda dependent on flawed and baseless reasoning. We should not let this flood of faulty thinking confuse or intimidate us. All Christians must prepare themselves to resist such an onslaught and the peer pressure associated with it. Faith in the Bible and in God himself is sure to be strengthened by an honest examination of the evidence in favor of creation. In contemplating the origin of the universe and mankind, many would like to rule out the influence of any force outside the physical realm. If we were to discuss matters from that standpoint, though, we would not be weighing all the evidence impartially. Moreover, we would be ignoring the obvious existence of orderly, purposeful creations “without number.”—Job 9:10; Ps. 104:25

Fossil Follies
Commenting on the continuing competition among evolutionists as to who has found the oldest/best humanlike fossil, a recent editorial in The New York Times observed that paleoanthropology is a “science long on dramatic assertions and short on sure knowledge. Paleoanthropology draws upon the rigorous disciplines of anatomy and geology but includes so much room for conjecture that theories of how man came to be tend to tell more about their author than their subject.”
The Times editorial noted the example of “English anatomists [who] uncritically accepted the Piltdown fossils that came to light around 1910”—later proved to be a hoax. To show that little has changed among today’s evolutionists, the book Missing Links is cited:“[Modern paleoanthropologists] are no less likely to cling to erroneous data that supports their preconceptions than were earlier investigators.” Why this lack of scientific objectivity? The Times suggests:“One reason may be that some theories attract more material support than others [or,“better” fossils get better funding].... The finder of a new skull often seems to redraw the family tree of man, with his discovery on the center line that leads to man and everyone else’s skulls on side lines leading nowhere.”
In any event, said the editorial,“Most of the [fossil] evidence would fit on a billiard table,” making anyone’s interpretation subject to sudden change.

POLITICS

WHAT SCRIPTURES HAVE ALWAYS HAD A BEARING ON THE ATTITUDE OF TRUE CHRISTIANS TOWARD INVOLVEMENT IN POLITICAL ISSUES AND ACTIVITIES?
John 17:16 "They are no part of the world, just as I [Jesus] am no part of the world."
John 6:15 Therefore Jesus, knowing they were about to come and seize him to make him king, withdrew again into the mountain all alone.
JESUS WOULD NOT TOUCH POLITICS WITH A 10 FOOT POLE!
Later Jesus told the Roman governor “My kingdom is no part of this world. If my kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be delivered up to the Jews. But, as it is, my kingdom is not from this source.”- John 18:36
James 4:4:“Adulteresses, do YOU not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world is constituting himself an enemy of God.”
WHY IS THE MATTER SO SERIOUS? Because as 1 John 5:19 says,“the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.”
AT John 14:30, JESUS REFERRED TO SATAN AS BEING “the ruler or the world.”
SO NO MATTER WHAT WORLDLY FACTION A PERSON MIGHT SUPPORT, UNDER WHOSE CONTROL WOULD HE REALLY COME?
WHAT, THEN, WILL HAPPEN TO MAN-MADE GOVERNMENTS?
The Bible answers that the governments "of the Entire inhabited earth" will be destroyed.(Revelation 16:14; 19:19-21 and Daniel 2:44)
If a true Christian believes that God’s Kingdom is about to remove all man-made political systems, he logically would refrain from supporting those political systems. After all if he tried to prop up doomed, man-made governments, he would, in effect, BE TAKING A STAND AGAINST GOD.
Jehovah’s Witnesses actively promote God’s Kingdom, not political reform!
