Re: Evidence of the Existence of God

What is your most convincing evidence for the existence of God? My take: There is absolutely no empirical evidence for God, that much is clear. Where, then, shall we look? The holy texts come to mind: the Bible, Koran, Torah, and the rest of it that has filled the minds of human beings over the mil...

Re: Evolution

I suppose after six pages, waiting for a reply from Equestrian to my post is unrealistic? What exactly to you want me to reply too? I've answered your more substantive arguments on other posts. I really don't feel like repeating myself for the purpose of engaging in a senseless rhetorical competiti...

Re: Evolution

It appears that this thread hasn't evolved much since my absence. Perhaps the activation of the Equestrian variable will produce the random mutation necessary for change. What an odd assertion. For an argument to have come out of the creationist playbook it must meet only one criterion. It must actu...

Re: Evolution

Well, first and foremost by plagiarizing previous creationists. Very rarely does a creationist create a new argument, instead endlessly recycling previous arguments even if they have been long refuted. Your comments to this point are directly out of the creationist playbook of Gish and Morris from ...

Re: Evolution

Why do I find that claim doubtful? If you are not a creationist, why are you plagiarizing their arguments to the exclusion of any arguments or evidence from real scientists? I'm not a Creationist, but you are welcome to believe whatever you wish. The fact is that I never made a case for Creationism...

Re: Evolution

And based on your premise, then it would discount those unsupportable and unfalsifiable believes foisted by the religious. Anyt account of the universe, creation or speciation that rely on some unknown superbeing should therefore be dismissed, because they are grounded on nothing but "personal...

Re: Evolution

It's not a strawman as I clearly stated it was Dawkins model of evolution. Visit his website, or read any one of his books. Last time I checked I wasn't taught Dawkins model of evolution, only evolution, which does not make any claim about God. You are welcome to lock your horns with Dawkins person...

Re: Evolution

- Strictly natural process with no appeal to a Creator. Once again a strawman arguement, since evolution makes no such claim. It's not a strawman as I clearly stated it was Dawkins model of evolution. Visit his website, or read any one of his books. Here we go again with ad hominums again...calling...

Re: Evolution

ID, alternative origin science, creationism, it's all the same. Just smokescreens covering a religious agenda. Your attempt to pigeon-hole me as some Creationist or theistic evolutionist may work for you as a satisfactory argument, but I can assure it does nothing to strengthen your case. Unlike yo...

Re: Evolution

Oh ****, learn to quote! You remind me of a friend of mine. He's a truck driver. A. It's called Evolution, not Darwinism. What do you mean by "it" ? I'm referring to Darwinism. Darwinism is a series of ideas related to evolutionary science or theories about the origins and development of ...

Re: Evolution

See? Yet more dishonest projection from the creationists. I am not a Creationist. * There is no "dogma of evolutionary science", it is constantly changing as new evidence is found and incorporated into the theory. There is no such progression with creation science, it is based around a co...
