Re: the great HOAX of 'Evolution'

I'd respond seriously but I'm not sure what it is I don't get. I was arguing about abiogenesis which is not "evolution". If you want to chastise someone for ignorance Faust made about the most stupid and ignorant statement I've ever seen about my post.

Re: Crazy Americans with Guns

Saying that the second amendment is supposed to act as a barrier between the people and government seems fairly ridiculous to me. A codified right to own weapons or forced ownership of weapons existed far before America's 2nd amendment for many practical reasons. People were supposed to own and be f...

Re: Thanks to those I visited in the US and Canada

As an American I'd be interested in hearing your insights too. It would probably be a more honest assessment of America and Americans than I've ever read since what one normally sees is severely jaded by stereotyping from a distance or extreme love/distaste for America at the outset.

It’s not a bad argument. Your understanding of the terms being used is bad. By definition, a secular government is free of clergy (and, therefore, religion) in government. Simple. Your original argument had nothing to do with the clergy holding governmental positions, it didn't come anywhere near...

There are far better websites to choose from if you want to try refuting evolution. And I'd just like to point out that entropy has nothing to do with evolution since it requires a closed system.
