Ah, my little vanity thread has past the 100 mark. Now to keep things lively: Creationism is bunk!

Really----then explain how dead chemical became living organisms.

You are showing your ignorance of evolution. The theory of evolution does not cover biogenesis but only deals with extent organisms. You probably already know this, but couldn't resist tossing up a hoary strawman.

Jesus spoke of Lazarus and the rich man as real people, too. We still understand him to be using a parable.

evolution says life evolved from rocks

Please cite one -- just one -- authority on evolution who makes this claim. And please, spare yourself the bother of giving us some creationism website as your source.

Evolution does not say life evolved from rocks. It says nothing on the matter of the origin of life. At all. Period. You might wish it to, but it doesn't. Evolution does say that all life descended from a common ancestor. Maybe that's where you are becoming confused, though I'm at a loss to understand how any person with even a passing hint of rationality could confuse "common ancestor" with "rock."

BTW, none of the half dozen or so theories competing in the field of biogenesis mention life coming from rocks. The Bible says man was formed from clay. Maybe that's where you heard this.

Darwin said no more than this: "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."

Source: The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin. (Chapter 14, last paragraph.)

...this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity... -Darwin

Not so fixed, really. Newton's 'law' of gravity was revised by Einstein, who shocked the Scientific Community of his time with the notion that gravity, most likely, was some sort of 'warpage' in the Space-Time Continuum. Scientists don't know what causes gravity...and are ALWAYS changing their story, history shows. Meanwhile, the Bible remains a stable constant. Every skeptic who has stepped forward so far with 'scientific' refutation has been discredited by science itself; particularly Archaeology. This doesn't seem to stop the flow of fresh skeptics, however...another phenomenon prophecied in Scripture with remarkable precision.

"God is dead", said Neitzche (who spent his latter years in raving insanity). In due course, however, Neitzche was dead. If I were a betting man, I think I'd have to bet on Scripture. It's just too infallible.

I attack the views held by some Christians

As usual you answer my questions with insults. The reason you do that is that you know quite well that evolution is atheism and that you hold Darwin higher than Christ. Again I ask you the question:

What part of Christianity do you believe in? What part of the Bible do you agree with?

You refuse to answer because you know that evolution = atheism and you wish to deceive good Christians into your atheist ideology - just like Darwin did.

Consider how he first invents his own fantasy version of evolution

I did not invent evolution. In fact, I am the one who constantly has to post what the theory of evolution is because evolutionists are too dishonest to state plainly what their theory is. One has to wonder how the theory of evolution can be a scientific fact when no one is willing to state exactly what the theory is. Evolutionists like to do the gobledygook dance and claim a different thing in each different situation. It is not science, it is an ideology and your constant insults more than prove it. If it were science and you were a scientist you would be able to back up your theory with facts instead of insults.

You're one of the most narrow-minded morons to ever grace these threads (and that's quite an achievement). One can view the account in Genesis as an allegory of God's relationship with man without taking it as a literal account. But then again, your mind isn't quite capable of encompassing such a concept.

Jesus spoke of Adam and Eve as historical persons, the first made humans by God. If Genesis is not historically accurate, then Jesus was confused, and certainly could not be Divine.

Indeed, the Bible is a unit, it is not a smorgasboard from which one can take what one likes. Of course that is part of the reason why evolutionists cannot be Christians - they are very self-centered and will take only what pleases them and their theory, never mind the facts.

Don't look now, but the Iraqi Minisiter of Dis-Information, "Baghdad Bob," has just arrived on your thread.

You can recognize his posts by the "English-is-my-second-language" sentence structure and grammar, the flagrant misrepresentations of reality, and the characteristic blue font....

This does not mean the fairy tale had any corporal validity, and the same could be said of Genesis.

Hmm, Genesis is a fairy tale and Christ's teachings are fairly tales according to you.

... and you dare claim yourself as an example of Christianity and evolution being able to coexist? You must think everyone is an idiot. Hate to tell you, they are not. They are much smarter than the guy who thinks everyone else is an idiot.

Darwin only showed similarities between species of the past.

And even then, just a few species which he very selectively picked. He knew of the platypus, but did not discuss it because it would completely disprove his theory. He knew of the bat's sonar, but he did not talk about that. He knew of butterflies and frogs going through a second incarnation, but he did not discuss that either as it was contrary from his theory.

Once again, you fail to understand nuance in the written word. I never said Genesis was a fairy tale. As a matter of fact, you'd be hard pressed to find wherein I called Genesis a fairy tale. But the truth does not matter to you. It never has. The only thing that matters is what you can twist to fit your own distorted world view. You are truly a pathetic individual. I am the last person who would actually engage you in any sort of conversation, but that will change shortly. You are again being relegated to virtual ignore. You can continue to claim that you are king of the mountain, but everyone who reads your posts knows you're still at the bottom of the hill.

Rationally, evolution does a far better job at explaining the evidence than creationism does.

As I said before, I will say it again, you hold Darwin above Christ.

No one has seen a single species transform itself. You cannot give any facts supporting evolution and the transformation of species into more complex creatures. All you can give as proof for your atheistic theory are the usual:

INSULTS


DOUBLETALK


LIES

Then if God created life, how come you evolutionists strongly deny that He created man and are constantly trying to prove (unsuccessfully I might add) that He did not create man? Answer that one, but of course you will not, you will just hurl more insults as usual.

Hee hee. That from someone who, in the now-pulled but not forgotten ACLU thread, posted the infamous #1360, addressed to me, on 19 Sep 2002:
[Note to moderator: I'm not insulting anyone. This is a copy of someone's insult to me.]
You execrable piece of lying garbage. Since you got back at around post#300 you have turned this thread from a civilized discussion into an avalanche of slime. You already got the post pulled away from the front to where no one will see it which was YOUR purpose.

It was your purpose because you and your friends are a bunch of lame know-nothing liars who can only insult and try to drive away people from the threads so you will have no opposition. Like the real Taliban, the evo Taliban are a bunch of stupid thugs who try to silence all opponents and destroy all those who dare say that the emperor of evolution has no clothes.

You keep thinking that by your despicable tactics you can silence the truth, but all you are doing is wasting your time. As the Communists, who had far more control than your little bunch of thugs showed, no matter how hard you try, you cannot silence the truth. The truth is so powerful that a very small band of men, eleven in fact, armed with nothing but the words of Christ conquered the unconquerable Roman Empire and destroyed atheism and paganism in the civilized world. You will not succeed because our Leader is infinitely more powerful than the maggot infested carcass of your hero - the atheist, racist, inciter of mass murder Charles Darwin.

Truth hurts does it not? The post is almost a year old already and it still bugs you.

If you do not like what you are, if you consider the truthful description of your behavior (which is verified by your posts on a daily basis) as an insult, then perhaps you need to change your behavior.

Insults, lies and doubletalk is all you are about. Your little ignorant rant was refuted way back on Post# 55 and neither you nor your lame minions has been able to contradict it in any way.

BTW: Insulting someone who you are unable to refute shows you to be even lamer than than the person you are insulting.

Evolution is completely materialistic and denies divine agency. That it no longer dares to tie itself to abiogenesis (life from non-life without divine intervention) shows that the basis of evolution - materialism - has been totally discredited. What this means is that evolution itself has been discredited but evolutionists do not dare to admit it.
