    So he wants to be a prophet now. Perhaps he has been reading the Holy Bible and is trying to one-up it.

    There's a big difference in predicting the future based on evidence and fact compared to predicting it based on prophecy.

    If you were intelligent you would understand that.

    Of course the world will end someday. It doesn't take a holey bible to figure that out. Anyone can see that. Even you...I think.

    I suppose if Dawkins said the same thing, you would say he is full of shyte but when Hawkings says it, there must be truth therein? Sounds like you are a bit touchy on the subject of people skeptical of your religion.

    Here is one example of Dawkins backtracking after being asked a question that he can not answer on the evolutionary process.

    I saw that before. That wasn't backtracking. That was pure anger. They were not supposed to delve into those subjects on that particular interview. He was duped into a trap. I would have been pisssed off too if I had been told beforehand we would talk about X and Y but not Z TODAY. But they jumped right in because they have no scruples.

    That seemed like a simple enough question for a so-called expert in evilution to answer. But instead of answering the question he admitted that apes are not our ancestors, even though he still insists they are our cousins without giving any proof.

    You got any proof, other than that rather tatty book you keep hawking about, that apes aren't our cousins?

    Thinking about it, some of my cousins are more akin to molluscs.

    What part of 'that wasn't to be in the interview' do you not understand? What part of he was duped do you not understand? BTW, instead of your continued plagiarizing the term Evilution, why don't you give your source, since I know full well you don't have the capacity for originality.

    Yes. I have given you the proof before, but you do not want to hear it, so you stuff your head in some dark hole.

    No, you haven't. You have not given me proof because this is not something that is provable. I don't recall much evidence for or against either.
