    Is that right? Animals have the knowledge of "good and evil" ??? Can we litigate animals to court when they attack us? Come on man ... TRY AGAIN.

    I have God's Word but what you have is only a Bluff. How did you measure the difference in intelligence when your animal evolved into Human? You cannot. You can only assume, from fossils, that the physical is about the same as our physical. You CANNOT measure When and How we obtained our Human Intelligence, which is the difference between us and innocent animals. This means that you do Not know when we inherited our Human Intelligence, so quit bluffing.

    Why not? It is myth. It can have a spaceship in it. Maybe a mother ship and a couple of runabouts for short trips to the moon for wine and cheese.

    I like that. It sounds nicer than many other terms and phrases that come to mind when I see that sort of thing. I see it in websites too. You can almost count on the content being, let us say fantastical, when you see wild backgrounds and text like that.

    Definitely agree too. Definitely 'green ink'.

    You really need to quit making false claims. One more time, just because you do not understand observations and how to make them that does not mean others lack that knowledge. There are mountains of evidence for the theory of evolution but you do not even know what is and what is not evidence.

    Until you learn the basics of science you should avoid making any claims since you will almost surely break the Ninth Commandment again.

    Like it or not the scientists that you keep making false claims about are "your neighbor". Just because they are not here is not an excuse. Please note that the Ninth Commandment is not a ban on lying. It is a ban on false witness. That means that if you say something bad about someone that even if you believe it and that statement turns out to be false then you have born false witness. It is a warning about behavior to avoid that many Christians do not understand.

    Yep, I see.It far too often by people claiming to be Christians.

    Education can save you from making that mistake.

    Thank
    Thank you for proving my three statements so well. What better evidence that the theory of evolution is so important that what you have written. So you do not believe in science so you do not believe in evidence and thus all you can do is make silly statements without evidence and no explanation for life on earth.
    Evolution theory spans all religions and not confined by ancient myths made up by humans with little understanding of how nature works. Statements like Jesus made it or its not there show how the desire to believe overrides what is actual. The worst statement is godless Evols. Science is not about god but about our world. Many who believe in god know evolution is the best explanation. Ignorance can be dangerous as can be seen in your post. Thus the theory of evolution advances and teaches us our relationship with the world while uninformed religious fanatics make false claims with no respect for the truth.

    The expression 'Primordial Soup' is a little old, and today only an anecdotal expression of the environment where life originated. The present science of earliest life dates between ~3.5 billion years ago where definite fossil of earliest life have been found, and ~4.54 billion years ago when the first signs of life have been found. There several candidates of environments associated with the finds of earliest simplist life forms. They are around the hot vents of in ocean ridges, hot springs associated with volcanics, and swamp environments in tidal zones sometimes called the 'Primordial Soup.'l pools. The first two are favored for various reason,, but most important the presence of heat energy and abundant nutrients needed for the nursery for the earliest simple life forms.

    This is a rather strange way to refer to yourself.

    I think the theory of evolution exist
    some humans evolve into backstabbing animals
    most especially when they cannot accept defeat
    pathetic weak unthinking animals

    This new specie is called:
    Rursus Miserum Senem Fodientem

    You still have no understanding of evolution.

    By the way, you lost a long time ago. Why are you talking about yourself in such a negative manner? It is fine for you to call yourself backstabbing. But I really don't think that you are that bad. You could think if you got rid of your fear. Think of it this way, if your God is real why would he not want you to learn the truth? If he is not real then it can't do you any good to hold on to outmoded ideas. How moral can a god that supports slavery and genocide be?

    Now I understand this verse.

    Psalm 53:1 New International Version (NIV)

    The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

    [​IMG]

    I do not want to be corrupt and vile

    I found great synonyms for "corrupt" on the new Thesaurus.com!

    What a wonderful mind was Einstein, in fact, I believe he is the greatest mind to have evolved in the 20th century, a mind who believed that there was a grand designer behind the creation.

    Are you up to the latest findings of our Quantum physicists?

    Do you accept that this universe was created from the plasma like electromagnetic energy, that was spewed out in the trillions and trillions of degrees in the event that is called the Big Bang?

    Do you accept that the first law of thermodynamics is the same as the first law of conservation and that is, that energy can neither be created or destroyed. And if energy cannot be created, the it has existed eternally, and if it can never be destroyed, then it will continue to exist into all eternity.

    You do realise that it has now been revealed that matter is no more than an illusion. Quantum physicists discovered that so called physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature.

    If you observed the composition of an atom with a microscope you would see a small, invisible tornado-like vortex, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. As you focused in closer and closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing, you would observe a physical void. The atom has no physical structure, we have no physical structure, physical things really don’t have any physical structure! Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter.

    Nothing Is Solid & Everything Is Energy – Scientists Explain The World of Quantum Physics

    Surely you are not so naïve as to believe that a universe of mindless matter has produced beings with intrinsic ends, self- replication capabilities, and “coded chemistry”? Or are you? Even though all the evidence points to the fact that all which exists, was created by the Eternal energy which has developed a mind that is the compilation of all the information gathered by all the diverse life-forms that it [The Eternal Energy] or God has become. God, who is the collective consciousness of all life.

    God, who is the essential reality of the universe, the eternal spirit from which all being originates and to which all must return as the close of each period of universal activity.

    God who manifests himself in the ever evolving Cosmos. So what can be known about God is plain to you young fellow, all you have to do is open your eyes.

    I believe a crash happened here.
    I didn't witness it. I don't know anybody who did.
    Just from seeing this scene, I know an accident happened there.


    The lesson here, is that events don't need to be "witnessed" for us to know that they occured.

    Now for lesson number 2:
    Let's say that everyone survived and that a few bystanders witnessed it all.
    Investigators interrogate everyone and what they get is 3 different versions.

    You see those markers "P", "N" and "C"? That's what the investigators do. They gather evidence. They analyse the circumstances. They look for tiretracks. If available, they also check car logs, GPS logs, traffic cams, etc. With all that data, aka evidence, they work out what actually occured.

    By doing so, they might validate what some of the interrogated said. They might also disprove their versions. "That one car was driving rather slowly" while a traffic cam 50m earlier measured it going 110km/h where he could only go 50 for example.


    People lie. People can be wrong, mistaken. Evidence either validates or invalidates testimonies. And validating one part of a testimony doesn't mean that the entire thing is correct.




    So, you've learned 2 valueable things today:

    1. events don't need to be witnessed in order to know that they occured - because events of the past leave evidence behind that you can study and analyse in the present.

    2. testimony alone is insufficient, because people can lie or be mistaken (and they very oftenly are).

    I see that you don't understand physics either. Interesting diatribe, too bad it has nothing to do with the subject being discussed.

    If you don't want to be corrupt or vile then you might want to consider changing your beliefs. Right now you are worshipping one of the most corrupt and file versions of god ever. Your version of God has no problem performing or ordering genocide. You really should read and study your Bible. He was also find with slavery. God supported slavery very much like we had in the southern U.S.. Do you think that genocide is good, or slavery?
