Now that Miss Know-It-All is done whining, getting the last word in and "explaining" to us how gravity is a theory (need to tell my colleagues that one for a good chuckle), let us get back on topic.

Is there anyone here who does not believe in evolution? Anyone at all?

While you are there, perhaps you can ask the librarian to help you out with financial advice because you are apparently bad at it seeing you have all these high-profile and well-paying jobs, yet have to borrow money from your family and cannot pay your credit card bills and have to ask anonymous people online what to do when you come across a minuscule amount of money, yet somehow allegedly live in a half million dollar home.

Are you that starved for attention that you feel the need to lie about every aspect of your life? Be happy with who you are and knock off the obvious lies.

Seriously, do not argue science with me again. You are five gallons of stupid in a three gallon bucket. Why don't you leave the science to me and you instead worry about the next lie in your online persona and a new imaginary job you have had.
Damn........


I even felt that body blow........


You hit hard bro......

It means so much to me that you take the time out of your life to put so much thought into me and mine, and take the time here lie about me and the others here that you are infatuated with. I'm sorry though, I'm not looking for another pet at the moment.

My apologies to you or anyone else that may have been offended. I have just had enough with the lies and fake persona. Usually I skip over most posts by him/her, but sometimes something they say is so ridiculous I feel compelled to snatch their ego back down to Earth and educate them.

Gravity is a theory?

For the record, I reported the post you quoted. It was against forum rules and what is fair is fair.

I know, right! General relativity is a gravitational theory? Whodathunkit?!

I know my sheer awesomeness scares and confuses you, but seriously dude... you just look like a ****ing idiot when you go off on these alcohol induced tangents and obsessions with members.

I was just thinking of how when I was younger, it was explained to me by older, wiser,
nosier coworkers that you can always tell who in the office is having an affair by the way
that they act like they hate each other.

Please knock off the personal attacks, lest tongues wag.

Do you mean the alteration of genomes due to natural selection and mutation?

Do you mean the alteration of genomes due to natural selection and mutation in a purely random, planless fashion?

With or without the possibility of deliberate guidance of the process by a superior intelligence?

I believe in Darwinism 100%...

But notwithstanding bullsh*tist partisans, I ALSO believe it's in concert with a deity and NOT contradictory...

Good answer, and a definite logical reason as to how God and science can exist together.

A better question is why believe in a theory that relies on random processes to the point of actively supression of competing theories? Evolution requires faith that a spontaneously generated single cell organism has been magically transformed into the vast array of life forms thanks to the process of random mutation. Never mind that for example that flight requires a whole constellation of muscular, skeletal, and behavioral attributes none of which independently provide an advantage in natural selection, it is all a product of randomness.

The dark ages style support for the anachronistic theory of evolution is based on politics not science. If life is a product of random processes then there is no need to wonder about a higher power the State is the supreme authority.

Before some of the other commentators jump to the conclusion I am suggesting we ought to teach the Biblical explanation of creation as part of the public school curriculum, I am not. While it is true alternative theories such as intelligent design lead to the as yet scientifically unanswered question of the designer's identity that is far superior to faith in a random process.
