    I am not a creationist, maybe.
    Genesis doesn't say that God made life on earth, it says
    "and God commanded the seas to bring forth life... and birds that flew in the air."
    People read the wrong things into the bible.

    Excellent point. KJV says "And God said Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life", etc. Which is what seems to have happened, one way or another.

    The point of contention between creationists and everyone else is how that took place, whether by operation of the principles of nature, as science and all sensible Christians maintain, or by God suddenly "poofing" things into existence, like a cheap magician.

    It is already up to two within two minutes. I dare say that I may get that third one yet.

    Edit: Told ya!

    Oh no, it appears that Stone Cold Steve Austin is not a fan of creationist Steve Austin

    If God created everything "like a cheap magician" He would have to continue to tinker
    with His creation as the environment changes.
    I believe the AIDS virus in particular is an aggressive evolutionary creature. Had it
    been "made" once and for all it could never do the endless adaptive tricks it uses
    to fool the human body.

    I had no luck when I searched the surname. I only found articles on his mother and a beer with that name. Adding Conservapedia to the search did the trick.

    Schlafly made a spectacular fool of himself in something called the "Lenski Affair", in which he disbelieved some research that demonstrated the evolution of bacteria taking place in the lab and demanded the evidence be made available, only to discover, after he had written several rude and peremptory letters demanding it, that the evidence was an actual population of bacteria, still living in the researcher's lab! The story is here and it makes highly amusing reading: Lenski affair - RationalWiki

    Schlafly also thinks the theory of relativity is a liberal hoax, apparently on the grounds that it encourages moral relativism!

    LOL, I love this thread. It is a perfect example of how creationists, when confronted with evidence for evolution, just dodge it and pretend it doesn't exist, and instead decide to talk about other stuff, like how to make English words mean something other than what they are defined to mean.

    Wow! That was quite the article. I loved the reminder to wash one's hands. Lenski was able to rip Schalfly a new one and yet keep me laughing. A rare ability.

    thank you

    I really hope none of you are lawyers, or magistrates.
    Sad when people stick out they know the truth of a matter even when they don't know.
    Worst yet, imagine if you were all part of a jury. I would feel sorry for the poor guy who has to spend his life in prison, all because of people who think they are so brilliant. It's only a thought.

    A proper judge would throw this case out, as well as all you out his sight. I would shake his hand for being the only reasonable person in the room... besides me. :)

    By the way, I'm laughing at all the lawyers. Like I said, this thread has turned into a circus.
    Perhaps you have nothing better to do.

    If the OP has any worth, why not discuss that?
    Do you think trying to discredit a person you hate, is going to earn you points?
    The OP was already weak to begin with, so don't blame me. I only showed it to be useless. A cockroach would have run across it, and it would have toppled.

    So what's it going to be - discuss the OP, or stand around complaining like someone just stole all your lottery tickets? :smirk:
