All I know is that I never get anyone to present all the evidence for life beginning 6,000 years ago in the Middle East.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Nor a workable alternative to Natural Selection Min, I've heard a lot say 'I don't believe it,' one today in fact, but alternatives? None!

The alternative to imagining that you can comprehend the incomprehensible is to stop imagining that you can comprehend the incomprehensible.

Sounds like something that an archbishop might say. If they weren't all tied up with the lawyers, that is.

You are suggesting that there is a difference?

It's only incomprehensible to you, apparently.

In retrospect, I only started to really learn at the point when I stopped imagining that I already knew it all.

Before that I was substituting imagination for understanding, and data for facts.

More circular talk and riddles. Why don't you actually SAY something. You started this argument, but have contributed nothing intelligent to it. What are you a philosophy major?

Agree, Dig. Science frequently says "I don't know."

Religion never does.
