    It's not really ignoring if you are going to keep referring to me all the time.

    I'd be interested in seeing an example of such an argument.

    Perhaps it was the increasingly interesting progression of natural chemical interactions, which is neither random chance nor carefully designed creation.

    Evolution does not = no God.

    Evolution at the hand of God contradicts literal bible text but probably best represents my view

    But it is in between those, right. A lot of stuff would have to happen in a very precise manner. So, there are simply more than a few possibilities.

    I don't know if this is true, but I remember a story about Billy Graham and a Scientist arguing whether God created the universe, or whether the big bang created the universe. In the end, Billy Graham throws his hands in the air, and screams: OK, I give up, you win!!!! In the beginning, with a big bang, God created the heavens and the Earth.

    So really, who knows. :dunno: For the most part, believing what happened in the beginning, or even if there was a "beginning" is not something that factors into many decisions I'm making on an average day.

    Maybe God has better things to do than encourage a national tax on stupid people. Just an educated guess. :dunno:

    Post 292 tap dances around the edges of it. Wasn't there a thread about religiously believing in science and how evolution cannot be true recently.

    As you were indirectly responding to someone I was having a conversation with, I will have to point out that you've never been very consistent. I even heard you once claimed to be libertarian. :cool:

    Drop us a line after you win. Let us know if you believe it was simple chance or a final answering of your prayers.


    Most gambling systems are designed to take in more than they put out, a lot like some other self serving systems.....

    Beware of secondary gain.

    People must LOVE you. :supergrin:

    I clearly used the words "just", "educated" and "guess". This SHOULD portray that I wasn't trying to speak in a fact based manner. :wavey:

    So you know, to me it doesn't look like post 292 is saying anything like "evolution is happening, therefore deities don't exist;" perhaps you're misunderstanding something.
