Methinks the author took the small bus to school, and got his degree via a correspondence course in Watchtower or The Plain Truth.

Wells is even loonier than Dembski, and that's saying something.

We'll be the judge of that and that will all be based on the arguments ABOUT EVOLUTION he presents. His relationship with the Unification Church is not the issue here.

Darwinism is an intellectually bankrupt 18th Century religion.

Only the most gullible and stubborn true believers still believe that the universe is ageless and without beginning, and that molecules had time and opportunity to bring something--life--into being from nothing through endless, aimless, pointless, undirected, chance collisions, couplings and decouplings.

That kind of belief requires infinitely more faith than the simple belief that a man rose from the dead.

The one statement is a gem: "The truth is Darwinism is not a scientific theory, but a materialistic creation myth masquerading as science."

Indeed. It is like a cubic zirconium gem. Those without education or a willingness to investigate it may take it as valuable, but in reality it is common and not worth much. Like cubic zirconium is to diamond, the above statement is to truth: a cheap imitation, not the real thing.

The intelligent design movement is schizophrenic.

It doesn't matter how many mainstream Christians and Jews working in the biological sciences say that evolution is foundational to our understanding of modern biology and is an important scientific discipline. They are all apostates and they are all wrong.

But if someone accepts so-called "intelligent design theory" then it doesn't matter how fringe their beliefs are. They can be a member of a mind-control sex cult that believes the Lord is throwing Christianity on the ash heap of history and establishing a new body of the Church with Sun Myung Moon as the new Christ, but that's just a distraction from his arguments against evoltion.

Cubic boron nitride, perhaps you may mean. Better than diamond when wearing down the iron-headed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boron_nitride.
Arguably harder than diamond as well.

Speaking of intellectually bankrupt...

The theory of evolution is about change in genomes, leading to speciation.

It is a lie to repeatedly associate that theory with the age of the universe, the creation of the universe, or the creation of life.

" Wow - was that an intellectual response or what!"

When you quote someone, make sure you get it right. Your quote of me left out the link to your original trash remark at post #68. The article is rubbish. There's nothing intellectual about it. It's simply wrong and contains many flat out lies. You're not interested, or capable of arguing this material anyway. It's beyond your ability. That's why all you've done and have been able to do on this thread is pick nits.

"Biology took away our status as paragons created in the image of God."

That seems to be the crux of the matter. Not just Darwin and TToE, but the reduction of man to a specimen of inquiry. It is all matters of the flesh, and doesn't take away from or add to the soul one iota. To be so vexed about it seems little more than vanity.

No, I was in fact referring to cubic zirconium.

OK--one more time. Although evolution is perfectly compatible with Christianity, it is not compatible with a literal reading of the Bible. You believe the literal word of the Bible. That's great, but you can't accommodate an understanding of evolution.

These passages are abundant and straightforward, all pointing to the same conclusion. Christianity is based on the revealed Word of God which consistently teaches throughout: God created man, and He did not use evolution to do it.

Where do you derive your belief?

You shamelessly plagiarized (in spirit) from my posts here and here.

I say to you, once again, WELL DONE!

Cheers!

I think it makes sense that God developed the whole beautiful spectrum of humans' skin tones, hair & eye colors, facial structures, body types, etc. that way.

A propos of this, DC Talk's Colored People video

Cheers!
