I'm neither christian, nor apologist.
Early in my membership here, I stated that I don't discuss scripture with nonbelievers.

So...

Ask Drich.

It's statements like this that clearly illustrate that this asshole has no intention whatsoever of debating honestly.



AND if abiogenesis, evolution, Big Bang Theory were all shown to be fatally flawed today, it would have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the fact that RuntPuppy's fucking fairy tale is just a fucking fairy tale.

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!

It's a red herring that has nothing to do with apologetics, because he's not competent at debating any other topic, because he's unable to form arguments and support them with evidence.

This is classic apologetic behavior: Distract from your own inability to support your claims by demanding evidence for something irrelevant and off-topic, then claim to have "won" without actually addressing the topic at all.

That's what keeps me shaking my head about this thread. WTAF does abiogenesis have anything to do with apologetics being bad for Xtardianity? Why is this derail still going on?

I don't know, as they haven't been presented for consideration.

Most of these experimental results are available free online if you actually care.

...but ok, you are now stating you are simply ignorant of them. Fine, but then why do you insist they are not relevant, since you don't even know what they are?

Quote:Amino acids are all around us. So what? We've never seen them come to life.

True, but gezus, must it really be so difficult to even get agreement on matters of basic chemistry?


Quote:That's ridiculous. Observation of life occurring naturally would convince me that life can occur naturally.

Well, there's hope then, because you yourself are naturally ocuuring life. Your parents conceived you naturally, without any magic (not a judgment on your parents' experience that night Blush ).

...well as an ex-x myself, I tossed half the Bible away because it was obviously just ancient Jewish stupidity. I've now tossed the other half out too, because it's obviously just ancient Jewish stupidity.
