    Father Heathen, I never said the theory was just an educated guess.

    When people say evolution is "just a theory", it displays a lack of understanding of what the term "theory" means in a scientific context. You could call the theory of gravity "just a theory", but we all know what would happen if someone were to leap off of the roof of a 30 story building.

    If that is the best "start" you got, quit now while you are ahead.

    Stop fearing the answer "I Do Not Know" would be a great first step.

    I'm glad your still around. I was hoping your giving the world a good fight with your medical issues.

    Look at how much mine has changed in 5-6 years. From complete ignorance to somewhat educated.

    I would hope this for all here.

    There is a required liberal agenda to keep peaceful dialogue here. So be it and I try my best.

    But do you think fanaticism and fundamentalism should not be frowned upon?

    Do you think idiocy should not be frowned upon?


    It is fact as facts can be.

    There is only the evolutionary facts of life, and those who refuse it.

    I think its called fanaticism.

    No its real as real gets. There are only those that refuse knowledge on this topic.

    Common for people

    No. There is usually the right side and the wrong side in most battles.

    As far as abiogenesis and evolution, there are no two sides. There is academia and education, and those who refuse it.

    No it is not. It is refused period. The only skewed data is by those who dot want to admit the problem is as bad as it really is.

    It is severe ignorance to think in the last 100 years that burning fossil fuels has not negatively effected the planet.


    With thousands of years worth of ice core data, there is factual evidence being ignored.

    I think you of al people should understand how terrible it is when people refuse facts due to closed minds because of agendas.

    I prefer to take a stance.
    I prefer a line of thought that I can act upon.

    now if you prefer a stance of ignorance.......good luck

    There are two levels of ignorance.
    those who are not informed are ignorant.
    they who CHOOSE to ignore are profoundly ignorant.

    as I said, I prefer honesty over false bravado.
    But keep it coming.
    It is most comically entertaining.

    Shallow posts only require shallow retorts.
    You want more substantial retorts, present more substantial posts.

    But if all you got is your false bravado....
    Prove me wrong.
    I dare you.

    As to your "prediction"...
    It merely shows you knew your post was shallow.
    As if you were fishing for the shallow retort...?

    another shallow post.
    No surprise there.
    You always resort to your "shallow retort" whining whenever you feel cornered or out posted.

    Might I suggest you pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and try anew?
