Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.

“In the journal Nature, three separate teams of geneticists survey DNA collected from cultures around the globe, many for the first time, and conclude that all non-Africans today trace their ancestry to a single population emerging from Africa between 50,000 and 80,000 years ago."

All a fiendishly clever plot to make all the cruise missiles miss their targets if it ever comes to that sort of thing!

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

The top image is of a snake defending itself against a heron (by Patrick Tewey/Audubon Photography Awards). Below, is a relief carving of a three-headed Nagaraja (king of serpents) defending itself against the bird god Garuda. It comes from a first century BCE architrave discovered in Kankali Tila at Mathura, Utter Pradesh, India. The artist who carved this was obviously drawing from observations of nature.

Also, apparently, chimps and bonobos were, to quote the first article "kissing cousins" Rolleyes (the latter one quotes the wonderful Dr. Adam Rutheford, another favourite documentary presenter of mine Shy )

"The origin of species feels like a process of division, where one population splits into two distinct ones, creating neatly branching family trees. That’s a fiction. “Gone are the days of neat branching trees,” writes Adam Rutherford in his book A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived. “If we are to look at the evolution that led to where we are now, instead of the nice neat tree, I think it could be reasonably described as one big, million-year clusterfuck.”*"

*Extra points for spot-on use of clusterfuck here Rolleyes

"E se non passa la tristezza con altri occhi la guarderò."

RE: The elegant nature of science
The ubiquitous pretense of atheists is that science and Christianity are not mutually exclusive. On the contrary, history's greatest scientists were men of faith, rather than atheists, until the early 1900's, when Eisenhower was shocked by the USSR's launch of Sputnik. Eisenhower then spent tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to promote Darwinian evolution, and its pretense of materialism/atheism. So with no further "need" for God, the gates to godlessness and its attendant lies were opened.

The Ivy League colleges were founded by Christians, not atheists.
I was born in a Christian hospital, not an atheist hospital. So were my wife and daughters.

While proclaiming goodness, atheists actually have no basis for morality - none whatsoever. Your own personal pride serves as your claim to morality, and pride was of course the original sin. In that regard, pride and attendant hubris, you are identical to the Islamic terrorists you so enjoy pointing your fingers at.

Atheists will NEVER be able to spin the absolute science embodied in so many passages of the Holy Bible, starting with the first sentence of the first chapter of the first book of Genesis, "In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth." This long preceded the Steady State Theory, embraced by scientists throughout the world - that the universe was eternal and unending. They were dead wrong, as you now know, but you cannot ever admit that the Bible was right long before *science* was.

Your mockery and condescension and hatred will avail you little, here on this earth, or afterward. You have no hope.
Momentum is conserved. Energy is conserved. Matter is conserved. The human spirit too is conserved.

Christians and Jews have the blessed hope and the future. Atheists have neither. Ahh, you say, but what about all the other religions? What about them. They are not your concern. You have rejected them all.

Go look for the atheism Vs theism forum and post there instead of putting your horseshit all over the forum, you ignorant sack.
