Reorganized Orangutan!
Yep. Knew it was coming too. Interestingly, I received several messages They're clearly too mean-spirited and ethically and morally bankrupt to offer even the simplest "Sorry about your cat". And then you have complete assholes like Appleton that show that REAL Christian caring. Which is just more prima facie evidence Agreed. He, as well as all of these varied fundies do all the work for us, to be sure. The wittings of such renowned theists as Appleton, Garard, Henson, Pope,

All in the Mind.
Pick any religious dogma. Take yours for example. I'd like to see convincing evidence in favor of your version of creationism, evidence that specifically lends credibility to your Biblical position, and shows evidence that other alternatives are false. Admitting that I have seen creationists who were knowledgable in science does not mean agreeing with their attempt to mix religion and science. And the opinion of Niles Eldredge don't lend any credibility to your argument, no more so than me finding

this is great!
Jesus, There is no where NEAR as powerful a reaction to such things as there is to the name of Jesus. The efficacy of his name is shown among those who believe, and the virulent, vehement reactions from many who do not, as is shown in holysmoke. Irrelevant. Why not just remove ANY thing that contradicts your notions? Hey, that's honest! (not) The gospel are in perfect agreement with Paul, and you cannot prove otherwise while demonstrating actual knowledge of

Continued From Previous Post] A BAD MONTH FOR RELIGIOUS TOLERATION Does the separation of church and state allow various denominations to thrive in an atmosphere of government neutrality toward religion? Or is the First Amendment's establishment clause a way of fragmenting organized faith, making sure that no one cult, sect, church or belief manages to get the upper hand? Maybe it is a blend of both. The establishment

Fizziks & Facts!
That's VERY interesting, given that Marie Curie discovered radiation in 1898! And the neutronn was discovered by Chadwick in 1931! GUFFAW! Is this an example of creation 'science'? GUFFFFAW! ROTFLMAO!

Zub Zub
Isn't that your entire philosophy of life watching from afar?

Time Travel?
Could you tell us how creation "science" [Guffaw!] "RE-EXAMINED" something in 1875 that wasn't discovered until 1898? GUFFAW!

All in the Mind (b)
Is your memory going? In your creationist claims you constantly refer to the Genesis account, in which the "creator" is none other than the Judaeo-Christian God, whose attributes are to be found in Genesis as well as other books of the Bile, and include perfection, infalliblity, total foreknowledge, and just about every omni-something you can think of. If creation "science" has now abandoned this "God" as the "creator", in favour of a new one, do let us in on the

GUFFAW!
I got to you ALEX, and I'm laughing at you because of it. Have a nice day, loser. My job here is fun and just begun. GUFFAW!

Dinosaur Ancestors!
Projecting again Laurie? After all, it is YOU claiming dinosaur extinction for rule-breaking! GUFFAW! So, YOU think the dinosaurs brains and responsibilities wre similar to yours? Well, I'd agree on the brain!

Actually, I'm a mullato hermaphrodite. I married myself, and we have seven lovely children, all with different blood types and skin colours.

Plate Tectonics.
But Laurie! YOUR comment is HILARIOUS, since YOU said, GUFFAW!

A much needed blueprint
Try and be creative instead of just handing out drivel like that.. Does your attempt at belittling people give you some sort of thrill? To me, it indicates a lack of confidence on your part. I could have sworn you were describing yourself here. I could have sworn you were describing yourself here. I could have sworn you were describing yourself here. You've lost it again, haven't you? You lack substance and become abusive when frustrated with your lack of

Balanced Resonableness.
That would be a nice "short-cut" about the matter wouldn't it, that is if you could get away with it! The facts are however, according to evolutionist Niles Eldredge, that those people calling themselves Creation Scientists, were NOT Bible Thumping clods at all. They were, according to Eldredge; highly educated, intelligent people. Skilled debaters, they have always done their homework. And they nearly always seem better informed than their opponents, who are reduced too often to a
