My sister who is now in the death throes of breast and liver cancer has a deep belief in god and that there is purpose even in her suffering.Must I know go and bombard her with Darwinian dogma and take away her meaning for living?
What I will NOT support though, and I will resist it with all means at my disposal, is having religious zealots trying to ram their beliefs down my throat and threatening my way of life because it doesn't conform to their credo (No, Alan, I'm not aiming that at you).
"You do not have to repeat what Darwinism is all about and you are all wrongly assuming I have no concept of evolution.Do I come over as some sort of an ignoramus or what?
If for instance we took a hypothetical analogy of millions of Boeing 747 airplanes, full of bricks, mortar and water, and dropped all this, at random upon the earth at once, would the result ever be the one of the glorious building constructions we see all around us, such as the wonderful beautiful Taj Mahal or the Sydney Opera house that was created, designed and built by mere mortal humanity? A trillion billion monkeys bashing at a billion typewriters for a billion years would never produce even one of Shaspears sonnets much less than the infinitely more complex DNA molecule.
The only place where I differ from you guys is that I believe an intelligent mind could be behind it all,
A question I've asked a few creationists and not yet had a coherent reply to - if God created us and made this planet for us to live on, why did he make it such a dangerous place (with earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tsunami, etc)? Surely, any being powerful enough to have created the universe could have put us somewhere a bit safer.
Alan - your reply may apply were we immortal; but that is not the case. We wouldn't each be around for a million years to get bored with it
Are you saying that there were some bad replies? Did these good people give up their time to post replies only for them to be categorised good or bad
Possibly not. Are you saying that plagues and pestilence, not to mention war, famine, hunger...the list goes on...are put here by your god to keep us on our toes and so we don't get bored
I hope my reply is more intelligent than those you received from idiot creationist who can't think beyond their very short noses
So, you don't like people challenging your idea of a god, but are quite happy to call others idiots for what they believeI would not have started this thread if I did not like people challenging my idea of god!
After a hundred years, we might like it after a thousand maybe still like it, after a million years, man!! We would start to be really pissed off with our never changing stupid companions and a billion years heaven would have become an unimaginable boring “Hell”
I spent a whole year trying to reason with one of these people who uninvited by me tried to force his silly ideas on me.
That sounds like an allusion to immortality.
Are you then a creationist If you are come out of the shadow and put your views to the forum?
There is more than one faith, although only one true faith

Paul, is that Federation a real church or are you kidding?
Incidentally the "Federation Of Christian Orthodoxy For Faith" is within a gnat's fart of having a really unfortunate acronym.
