You should go find some facts, substantiate them in some way and then use them to form some sort of testable hypothesis.  (Friday Feb 17 | post #1848)

Those look more like questions than facts. Maybe it's because 1 thru 6 end with "?".  (Friday Feb 17 | post #1847)

Why would what other people believe have anything to do with whether or not the things you believe are silly? If you believe silly things, you believe silly thingsbut if I don't believe God exists, none of that means anything to me. You're pretty much saying "If you want evidence that God exists, you first have to pretend that God exists." Can you see that there are some steps missingI don't think any explanations are "proved" . Some are just better than others. I don't think logical fallacies (arguments from ignorance/incredul ity) have any explanatory powerFirst off, let's accept that there is no "proof" of anything. I don't know if abiogenesis is possible; I just have no reason to think it is impossible. It seems like a more likely explanation than an imaginary Deity. Evolution is not only possible, it is pretty much undeniable. (You won't accept that, of course, because you don't know enough about the subject to have your own opinionMy point is this... You claimed that There is Not a SHRED of Evidence! I offered you some evidence. I didn't say it was all the evidence or the best evidence. I was merely countering your claim. In response you went of on some weird tangent of misquoting Francis Crick and offering absurd computations and exactly the sort of dishonesty that you're known for. That was my point.  (Thursday Feb 16 | post #1791)

You are most certainly allowed to embrace anything you wish. Why would you think you aren't? What you really want is for people to respect and agree with your silly beliefs. Lacking any evidential foundation, that's not likely to happenSo, in order to believe in a God, all you have to do is start by believing in a God... ReallyUnfortunatel y, the standard for evidence is not "...only information which is acceptable and understandable to every delusional, dumb-as-a-box-of-r ocks religious fanatic." I've offered you explanations in the past and may just as well have been trying to address a tree stump. I'll give an example: "Many of the components of a cell have been observed to occur by natural means." Now you respond.  (Thursday Feb 16 | post #1786)

It's not surprising that rejecting claims for which there is no evidence makes no sense to youI don't embrace only natural explanations, just those for which there is evidence. It happens that those are the same thing. If you can suggest other possibilities which are supported by evidence, I'll be glad to lookI try to believe things because they are true, not just because they make me feel better.  (Thursday Feb 16 | post #1783)

The thing a Theist has to overlook: 1. God Beliefs are silly and don't make any sense. Embracing a God blinds you to any other possibility.  (Thursday Feb 16 | post #1764)

Evolution vs. Creation

Paleontology and embryology provide more than adequate evidence for the ToE, but genetics gives it a slam dunk. Considering the "junk" DNA, pseudogenes, retroviral inserts and all the other nonfunctional crap, the Intelligent Designer of our genetic material would have to be more of a drooling buffoon.  (Monday Jan 30 | post #232365)
