The next argument I would go based on that is, how can a god that is perfectly good create something that kills us, when god defined murder as bad?
Although somehow I think they would say something along the lines of anything god does is good even if it's contradictory Facepalm

I think you just answered your own question. Yes

But did I miss the bit where god defined murder as bad?

If you are talking about one of the 10 commandments (the ones that Moses deleted in a hissy fit), then that was about Jews not murdering other Jews.

Generally, god would appear to be in favour of genocide.

The superbugs are really his chosen people.

Dodgy

Yeah was referring to the 10 commandments, figures that god would only be referring to the Jews not murdering other Jews instead of you know everyone Dodgy . Still trying to learn as much as I can Smile I seem to be still only scratching the surface on the amount of genocide in the bible from what I've been learning.

Seems like arguing with creationists is akin to arguing with a brick wall.

Stolen from a comedienne who I can't remember...

If theists dont believe in evolution, then why won't they take last years flu jab?

God's divine plan is (apparently) to repeatedly fuck us in the ass against our will while (not audibly) whispering to us how much he loves us, so I see no contradiction here... Dodgy

You heathens have it wrong. Bacteria and viruses don't evolve. They change disguises.

Also, Christians have to believe in evolution. After all, their Messiah evolved from a Middle Eastern guy into an ultra white guy.

How do creationists explain the evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria?

We are seeing evolution in action as the few bacteria that had the mutation to survive the antibiotics are surviving via natural selection processes.

And if they admit micro-evolution is occurring but not macro-evolution then they are arguing from personal incredulity. As micro-evolution and macro-evolution are just terms trying to split evolution out when that is not how it works(from what I understand). Using their terms you end up with, If enough "micro-evolutions" happen you end up with "macro-evolution"

Consider the evolution conundrum of Noah's ark. A Christian would argue that 17,000 or so "kinds" were on the ark and evolved from the time of the flood about 4240 years ago into the millions of species we see today. An evolutionary event that requires each species of animal coming off of the ark to generate hundreds of different species from their "kind" and populating all of the species with a significant population for every branch from the original "kind". And this all supposedly happened in less than 5000 years, and it did this without leaving a trace of evidence in the last 4240 years.

this article really doesn't say much about after the ark is actually dry docked. Even if you could store all those species in the ark, what happens after? 2 of every animal isn't sustainable, just gonna have massive inbreeding as a result and just mostly if not all dying off. But I suppose magic.Angel

They won't be happy until they see a rock give birth to a dog.

they believe evolution requires livings things to come from rock which is why its impossible yet have no problem believing that man was created from a rock
