I thought this was the 'Just Chat' section. Evangelisation is only an offshoot of my purpose-- which is simply to show that science is compatable with Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church.

So far all you have done is try to prove that God is behind science, and also to attempt to defend the Catholic Church. That is not an offshoot of anything, that happens with a design and purpose.
In essence there is nothing wrong with that, except that you avoid answering questions put to you,you ignore other points of view and insist on persuing your point doggedly rather than exploring other avenues. That,is what people are fed up with.

Then don't do it - Period. Those are the rules we all agreed to when we signed up. It just isn't allowed at all.

In cased you missed it the AUP says "The site is not for evangelising your own pet theory."

Consider this a warning.  If you continue to not allow any flexibility in your "discussion," then you will not be able to continue to participate in this forum.

My purpose is simply to show that science is compatable with the teachings of the Church. I am sorry if this seems to amount to evangelisation to some. I am not a cleric, only a Church historian. I realise that in a scientific forum, mere mention of the possibility of God can seem as evangelisation to some-- my apologies. Could someone be specific as to a question I am avoiding.

No one forced you to post in violation of the AUP.

It isn't the questions you are avoiding - it is the inflexibility of thinking and the certainty that there is only one explanation. this is diametrically opposed to any scientific, or for that matter, rational discussion. You are strongly in violation of this sentence in th AUP:

"The site is not for evangelising your own pet theory." 

It has nothing to do with religion, or the existence of God, just the inflexibility to recognize  any other opinion but your own as valid. Only a few percent of the population in this world are as narrow minded as you appear to be.

Intolerance is not only poor manners, it is morally wrong. Would you allow comments AGAINT you on your web site?

Think of others, not just yourself and your opinion. Other people have valid opinions. Otherwise you are participating in a Jesuit "jehad."  That is evangelising.

There certainly are two systems-- Christ and anti-christ. Western music is a product of the Roman Catholic Church.

Roscoe makes a valid point.

BLOODY GARBAGE!


Talk sense or shut up!

I as a Roman Catholic find that statement offensive and disturbing.

NO rosco - you can't get away with bringing in your friends to help.  You are responsible for your own posts and no amount of help can turn this into a psuedo-discussion trying to uphold some pet belief, no matter WHAT it might be. It could be that the moon is made of green cheese. This intolerance to other ideas and utter inflexibility has gone on long enough.

I did try to reason with you but because you evangelize, there was no reasoning.

It's worth saying at this point for other people reading this thread that we are not a theology forum.  There's plenty of other webspace for you to discuss the finer points of your chosen religion in.
