necro must be either very short or a young adult. I can`t figure out any other reason why he results to bullying remarks as fast as he does. Even in my recent post, I pointed out, that is a common tactic to make people who don't tow the party line feel stupid.I`m not going to say anything here about my IQ or education, but lets just say I have a lot of training in physiology and I'm a quick learner. I also instantly recognize these types of bullying remarks and tune out to what is being said. Pear pressure has little effect on my too.

So necro, do you want to grow up, get tall and join the adults at the table?

PS I lay no claim to being good at grammar, spelling or typing. Interestingly though I have people who work for me that are.

I asked questions, I did not give any "tilt". I never received an actual answer based on facts I could review. If you have no answer, maybe just don't try hard to insist its true and you're an idiot. Anyway I did call you small and young so, we're even, but I won't be engaging in anymore childish debates.

liar.

all you do is ask ridiculous questions that google could answer if you possessed even an ounce of sincerity.

If you have no answer, maybe just don't try hard to insist its true and you're an idiot.


evolution is a fact, god? ------> R.I.P.

Evolution is a theory strongly supported by scientific evidence – to be precise.
I know a lot of people here don’t want to recognize that little distinction.

We can see/touch/taste/smell and count how life forms (including ourselves) have improved themselves to suit their surroundings and/or survive/mate - or they die trying.

Socially, we evolve as well (if that matters in this debate).

Yes Surplus, religion itself is an evolutionary process. A basic list of common religious belief among cultures begins with animism and has evolved through but is not limited to: totemism, shamanism, pantheism, fertility religions, agricultural religions, polytheism, monotheism, UFO cults and even scientism of the 18th-20th centuries spearheaded at the moment by Dawkins and Dennett fits the description well. Scientism shares all the fundamental features of religion according to this textbook*...

Basic Worldview - How the universe is set up

Ultimate Reality or God - What the ultimate source and ground of all things is.

Origin of the World - Where it all came from.

Destiny of Humans - Where we are going.

Revelation or meditation between the Ultimate and the Human - How we know this and how we are helped to get from here to our ultimate destiny.

*(Many People Many Faiths, Ellwood, McGraw, 23)

Isn't that interesting.

I meant the idea of human rights from hard medieval times. Language. Art. Technology. Clean water.

Not specifically religion, or d-evoultion of it, but sure.

The theory of evolution does a fairly decent job of explaining what has happened since creation.

Something from nothing is a step up, isn't it?

Wait - are you talking about "life on earth" or the Universe itself?

It seems apparent some coursework in both physical and cultural anthropology would serve you well.
It help would you from continuing to make a monkey of yourself. Your choice though obviously. :smt039
