Also from The Eagle school of Dubious Credentials:

I am an expert on New Testament biblical criticism and textual analysis.

One time I made it half-way through Lee Strobel's "The Case for Christ."

Eagle is so religious that he will probably offer a baptism and salvation to God. After that he will encourage God to bring in his wife, the Holy Spirit, and his son Jeebus and baptize them as well to save their souls from the fiery pits of hell. Then, the choir will burst out in song, people will start speaking in tongues, and God will break out his checkbook and write a large check to the Church of Eagland.

Yet he couldn't even begin to answer the question concerning the "born again" refutation by Ehrman.

He has NO credentials in anything.

Evolution is change in allele frequency over time.
That's it. Literally. That novel structures or speciation occurs is actually incidental to that.

I know, right? !!!!!!!

Maybe the "honors" are from Eagle's grade school graduation? I mean, my son learned the drawbacks of Wikipedia in fourth grade or so, but maybe Eagle's from one of those states with an educational system that lags behind.

I want you to know that he was Valedictorian...homeschooling will do that for you.

It’ll look something like this I’m afraid. Shocking

The one you cherry-picked is really synonymous with "religion" since it is simply a "system of religious veneration". Christianity is directed to a specific figure (Christ). Cult vs religion is entirely in the eye of the beholder.
I clicked on your link and it took me to the EXACT definition I posted. Maybe you have different Google than me.

'a system of religious veneration and devotion directed towards a particular figure or object.'
Read past that line. There are three definitions given.

In any case: Christianity is veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure, Jesus.
